Glen Park at tipping point on violent crime
Jennie Park keeps crying. She doesn't mean to but the tears bubble up unexpectedly.
Certainly she is deeply gratified that so many of her Glen Park neighbors are stopping by her store, Buddies Market, to ask about her husband, Paul. Friday night, at closing time, he was beaten, tied up, stabbed and robbed. He's better, Jennie says, but she can't shake the fact that one of the knife blows nicked his liver and her 53-year-old husband nearly bled to death on the store floor.
