Family and friends warned her to stay clear. But she has since gone back - she recently applied for a job at a mall store and still hopes to get it. "I'm already aware; when I go somewhere, I look around a lot. Now when I go [to the mall], I'm doing that, but more," Raney said.

Editor: Whatever happened to teen centers, CYOs and high school mixers? How do the teens (16-19) of Harford County socialize these days? Facebook, texting and interactive gaming! They boast about having hundreds, even thousands of Facebook friends, but in reality how many do they actually physically see and do social activities with? There is nothing for most teens to look forward to on the weekends. Of course, there is the mall, spending time in local restaurants, which can be costly!

Men scuffle in the darkness outside the old grocery store, jostling each other on the sidewalk under the broken Coca-Cola sign.Their voices, loud and angry, filter through the barred windows of the little store that's now a teen center. Two dozen children sit munching hot dogs and watching a movie, ignoring the commotion and the sound of breaking glass until a police car pulls up with blaring sirens.The children rush to look outside. A few 10-year-olds wander up the block to watch the arrest, returning only reluctantly when outreach worker Joseph "Zastrow" Simms corrals them and admonishes them backinto their seats.
