Just another day in the life of a police officer

While walking through the rear parking lot of Brentwood Mall, I couldn't help but notice 9 police cars having boxed in 2 cars in the upper parking on the Sears rooftop.  According to some witnesses, the police methodically and systematically moved in on the suspects without any unfortunate incident.  The scene contributed to what was already a beautiful evening as the sun was ready to set.

McDonald's renovation complete. What did they renovate?

The McDonald's express located at Brentwood Mall's south entrance next to IHOP and BMO underwent renovations in July and had to be shut down for a few days.  Now that it has reopened, I am wondering what the renovations and subsequent closing of the store accomplished.  As far as I can see, everything looks exactly as it was before the renovation.  The entrance and ordering counter remain in the same position as before. In my opinion, it would have made sense to at least change the layout so the ordering area would not spill into the mall as it does now and become crowded during hours when the mall is closed and the accordion doors are closed.

Maybe the work only involved electrical and plumbing updates.
