SOUTH BEND - It's been a neighborhood lightning rod since a 19-year-old was gunned down in August. Monday afternoon, police executing a search warrant raided the Olive Street Convenience Store on suspicions of selling illegal prescription drugs, counterfeit clothing and cigarettes to minors. “There's a right way and a wrong way to run a business,” said Capt. Phil Trent, spokesman for the South Bend Police Department. “And on many different levels and many different ways, they weren't going about this the correct way.” Standing in front of a U-Haul truck backed up to the store's front door, Trent said the raid marked the end of a “months-long investigation” spurred by “numerous complaints” from neighbors.

" In the denouement to the daring raid that brought down Osama bin Laden, the president has in effect been reintroduced to the nation. While taking care to strike the right tone — trying to savor the success of the dramatic covert operation without appearing to gloat — Obama has offered himself as a decisive leader willing to take bold risks.
