But two officers I spoke to this weekend, both of whom asked to remain unnamed, told me that they have long heard stories about Moore and the mall.
I saw it as I drove around, crisscrossing George Wallace Drive.
He also said, “I heard from one girl who had to tell the manager of a store at the mall to get Moore to leave her alone.”The second officer went further. But I’m basically disgusted now, to be honest with you.
“A friend of mine told me he was banned from there,” he said. Some of the things he’s said recently, I’ve changed my tune completely about this guy.” He went on, explaining why Moore no longer appeals to him.
The legal age of consent in Alabama is sixteen, so it would not be illegal there for a man in his early thirties to date a girl who was, say, a senior in high school.
But these officers, along with the other people I spoke to, said that Moore’s presence at the mall was regarded as a problem.
