Holder: Malls Should Increase Security

Friday, 27 Feb 2015 08:01 AM

Shopping mall operators need to increase security through more staff, cameras and other techniques in light of threats made against the Mall of America in Minnesota and other shopping centers by Somali-based Islamist militants this week, outgoing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said.

"I certainly think we have to step up our sensitivities to what goes on in these commercial enterprises," Holder said in an interview with CNN that aired on Friday. "And, I think it would be the responsible thing for operators of these malls to increase their capabilities when it comes to keeping people safe who are just going about their everyday lives."

In a separate interview with Politico, also published Friday, Holder said he would push in his final weeks in office to lower the standard of proof for civil-rights offenses.
