This is shoplifting, not a flash mob. The best term I've heard for these incidents is "multiple offender crimes." Real flash mobs are innocuous, not criminal acts: http://bit.ly/oz4Qwb.
I agree. I find it hard to equate the selfishly criminal behavior such as this when you have something else such as this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXh7JR9oKVE called the same thing.
Yes, we have a Maxipad here in Houston - Sheila Jackson Lee. Except ours is more brainy than yours. (She asked NASA if the Mars rovers would be able to see the tracks left there by The Apollo astronauts.) Her district is just like you describe Compton to be, and she will always be reelected.
Nah, that one's saved only on mobs of little old ladies holding Bibles in front of an abortion mill.
The sad truth is they probably did not have enough police on duty to respond to this incident effectively. Since these perps are all presumably juvenilles, all they would get is a slap on the wrist anyway. Unless you classify this crime as something more serious than shoplifting it's almost not worth prosecuting.
Strong arm robbery or lotting maybe? It depends on the satutes written in the Montgomery County penal code. Of course there is always the possiblity that if they come down too hard on these "precious children" that there could be an uprising in the black community.
Lots of things to consider here. But I think we might need a new law on the books that would make this type of a flash mob crime a felony.
They aren't Americans. They are ignorants dealt a nasty hand by the Democrat Party who won't let them off the plantation.
Clearly these were Tea Partiers. Clearly!!
Here on Reality Island we have a saying: "If poverty causes crime then rich people would be the most honest people on earth."
MLK, Bill Cosby, Allen West, Thomas Sowell wouldn't be caught dead doing this. It's not lack of money, it's lack of values.
Actually I'm with you. Otherwise being a heartless Christian would be the epitome of hipocrisy.
No... welfare has certainly been a needed function of society. However, when it is not distributed through the caring heart but through government, we see the results of that in this video.
What you are watching is the Obama/Democrat thug machine at work. They are going to keep up the violence from the commie Occupy crowd and intersperse it with mobs like this to put the country on edge so the dummies who guzzle kool-aid will clamor for Obama to make it stop....top down, bottom up, inside out!
Van Jones dream.
Black crime has ALWAYS been disproportionate to their numbers. It is not just since Obama has occupied the White House. Most of the blacks currently living here in Canada came in the 1970's, yet the black crime rate outnumbers every minority group in the country. Why is that? Why does it seem that blacks are inherently more violent, less apt to adjust to civilized society and less able to absorb or desire an education? Why does Africa seem to be unable to bring themselves out of the depths of centuries of poverty, starvation and war, even after other 3rd world nations like India or China have progressed by comparison? What has Africa contributed to the world in the past 200 years? They prefer to take from, and seek help by other nations, rather than remedying their problems on their own. So many blacks in America seem to have the same mentality, not all, but many do. Decades of a collective-victim psyche has killed their brain cells. These pathetic excuses for human beings remind me of parasites, feeding off of it's host (guilt-ridden White America) who has resigned to it's fate.
Bring your shotgun to work day (every day), lock the door, and call the police.
EDIT: Actually, now that I think about it, you'd probably get arrested for unlawful imprisonment.
Hate to say it, but notice the common denominator in these flash mobs groups?
They are all.......
What? what were you thinking?
Oh don't worry Obama's Democrats and the liberal left will blame every one else but the culprits! They will have us believe that the real victims here are the 50 odd scumbags that are raping the store and not the owners.
The Socialists from OWS and Dailykos will be high fivin'.....
