This video is very disturbing because at the moment there seems to be no answer to these thieving flashmobs who could care less about who they hurt in the process of stealing whatever they can from these NY venders:

CBS NY – Violent, thieving mobs have been making headlines across the country for the past few years, and now they have hit New York City.

And Maurice Dubois reported in this CBS 2 investigation, the teen mobs have left neighborhoods worried as businesses take matters into their own hands.

Judson Bennett, 78, recently ran into a violent group of teens – often described with the once-benign term “flash mob” – as he made his daily trip to buy a newspaper at his favorite news team.

“I’m approaching the newsstand, and then suddenly there is a tremendous force behind me,” Bennett said.

Bennett ended up with a broken arm.

“I was taken completely by surprise,” he said.

In New York and across the country, the mobs of kids – 20, 30, 40 or more — appear out of nowhere and suddenly charge a newsstand or convenience store.

They ransack, steal and wreak havoc with no consideration for customers, such as Bennett, who get in their way.

“They assemble, they do whatever it is that they’re going to do, and then they disassemble in a matter of minutes,” said Jon Shane, assistant professor of criminal justice at John Jay College. “By the time somebody recognizes what is happening or is injured, if the police are able to respond, it’s slow.”

Raj Shmara owns a newsstand at Broadway at 55th Street. Shmara said his newsstand has been targeted seven different times by mobs of teens. During an attack just last week, the kids threw a bottle at an employee who had to be hospitalized.

“They cost me a lot,” he said.

The increase in attacks and their violent nature has many people concerned.

“I think it needs to be addressed,” said Gale Spitalnik. “It’s awful.”

“It’s disturbing to have that kind of activity happening in New York City,” said Greg Lukasiewicz of Nutley, N.J.

“It’s against the law,” said Edvin Brown of Brooklyn. “They should address the problem [like] they address every other issue.”

The man who manages the newsstand where Bennett was injured said it has been attacked four times in just the past few weeks.

“It’s hard to earn a living, and then they come here and destroy everything, and then they leave,” he said. “It’s sad.”

As quickly as they arrive, the newsstand victims said, the teens are gone — along with thousands of dollars in goods and damages.

Teens have destroyed the newsstand on 57th Street between Eighth and Ninth avenues so many times that the manager has been forced to shut down completely in the afternoon so he doesn’t lose any more money.

“All our displays are broken,” he said.

    Well, what do you do about this Mayor Bloomberg?!

    • hbnolikeee

      Send MIKIE the bill.

    • UnCL3

      Well, hells bells! Why don’t you just shut down the evil newstands and convenience stores, Mr. Nanny Pants??

      • marketcomp

        I know, UnCL3! Them darn capitalist!

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Indeed! Did you see what they’re selling? Evil, sugary, fat-inducing, high-calorie candies and snack foods! Nanny Bloomberg needs to shut them down at once…in the interest of “common sense” and in restoring order to the socialist utopia.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      I wonder how long it will take before somebody gets killed. Perfect time for New York to put a gun ban in place, yessirree. The politicians there are long on promises and short on brains. Nanny Bloomberg, it’s time to ban public groups larger than three people and set a curfew for teens not to be on the streets after 8:00 in the evening. In the interest of “common sense” and to restore order to your socialist utopia.

      • marketcomp

        Or, time to remove those stupid gun laws and require that every news stand have a gun, maybe! Naw, that makes way too much sense. Why that protects the vendors private property. Oh, I forgot, its all communal property shared by all.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          Stop making sense and make “common sense”. Zero and Gov Coma wouldn’t have it any other way.

      • Reb Biker

        When mobs like this pose a threat to public safety, it should be perfectly legal to shoot them. Until there are consequences, their behavior will not be modified. Flying bullets modify behavior particularly quickly.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          I wholeheartedly agree Reb Biker!

    • 12grace

      Crime in New York has skyrocketed especially black on white crime, I suspect the reason is that more and more liberal judges excuse away their criminal actions and chalk it up to their rough childhood or white racism.

      Anyone that believes in freedom and justice should not come to NY. it is the illegals paradise now.

      A Canadian contrasts the U.S. economy with Canada’s.

  • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

    Guns, also for defense of property.

    • UnCL3

      definitely in TX they are…

    • T4Ut

      I have to admit this was my first response too. Why doesn’t the shop owner take matters into his own hands and defend his property?

      Then I realized it’s NY City – can’t have a gun, but I’m sure there must be some other common sense way to do it.

      The thing that concerns me more with this story is that it really reveals the FACT that OUR SOCIETY HAS LOST IT’S MORAL UNDERPINNINGS and is now adrift in a sea of corruption, porn, dishonest, malice, vice, complacency and sloth!

      I would seriously love to hear suggestions from any of you on how we can regain our moral footing as a people.

      Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ full time would do it, but few of us can.
      I would plead with you all to make sure you and your family have on the whole armor of God and do it now.

      It seems to me that Lord allows the wicked to punish the wicked and our society is just about to get a boot to the head and trampled – just like these hoodlums did to that man.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jane-Smith/1013997093 Jane Smith

        It is only certain members of society that do these kind of things, and as a result of no parental or religious guidance, these kids have no moral compass or compassion whatsoever. A bullet pointed at them might teach them that they cannot behave like animals and get away with it. However, until the Mayor of NY is ousted and an actual leader who lives in the real world gets elected, things will never change.

        • John Galt

          These “kids” do have a moral, or should I say immoral, compass and that is Obama! They see that Obama and his ilk steal from the taxpayer, and they do the same from the shopkeepers. These so called “kids” have degenerated into animals. Socialists like Bloomberg, Obama, et al must be purged from the United States if we are to survive.

  • mjs_28s

    Shotgun with large grain rock salt for ammo.

    Or 1 canister of bear spray in each hand. That would be enough to hose all of them down in 5 seconds or less.

    • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

      Bear spray……sounds like an idea. Until they make that illegal too because you hurt somebody’s eyes, even though they were trashing and stealing. Should have called 9-1-1.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

        Is bear spray like mace? Because if so, that’s the idea I had. If not, I suggest mace!!!

        • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

          I had to google it since there are no bears around here. It’s basically pepper spray taken up a few levels and it has up to 30 feet of range…….maybe I would need something with less damage potential since I would be much closer to any customer gone bad.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

            Bear spray huh…sounds really powerful, with a big possibility of splashback. Gotta be careful with that…I’d hate to get sprayed myself! >:(

          • PatrickHenrysBody

            Leftist authoritarian disconnect reply: there is no need for any citizen in the NYC socialist utopia to have pepper spray or bear spray on his/her person because there are no bears or ferocious wild animals roaming NYC. You will be arrested and charged with animal cruelty if you are caught spraying those harmful substances on any animal.

            • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jane-Smith/1013997093 Jane Smith

              What’s the difference between those boys and a bunch of wild animals?

              • PatrickHenrysBody

                Good question.

      • warpmine

        Screw that, shoot skunk spray at them. You’ll find the perps easier that way.

        • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

          …..not in the little shop I’m in :)

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Indeed! There is a cop on every corner and behind every light pole in NYC! Judging from the video, the NYPD seems to really care.

    • UnCL3

      But then they’d get sued…it is NYC, after all!

    • dabbobean

      FYI – Bear spray canisters cannot be larger than 12 ounces.
      Nanny Bloomberg

      • notsofastthere

        Use beer spray on the kids and the owner would be in jail for serving minors alcohol.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          LOL

      • warpmine

        ROFLMOL!

      • Amjean

        Just purchase two!!!!LOL I am sure the persons wanting their “Big Gulps”
        have thought of that already. Altho, it might cost them more.

    • ApplePie101

      Bear spray + baseball bat.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Baseball bats will soon be outlawed. Only “professionals” should be handling baseball bats, not the common, ordinary citizen. If you feel the need to purchase and possess a baseball bat, feel free to purchase a Nerf bat…in the interest of “common sense” and to restore order to the socialist utopia.

        • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

          They’ll never lay a finger on my Louisville Slugger!

          • denbren52

            They’ll have to pry my baseball bat from my cold dead hands :)

            • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

              :-D Thatta boy slugger! lol. Just kidding. I do have a pretty mean swing myself.

          • PatrickHenrysBody

            :-)

  • UnCL3

    Ya know what? I dare these pr1x and b!1tches to come try this in Dallas. You bet there would be a beatdown…the cops and citizens down here don’t play that cr4p.

    • mike3e4r7

      I’d also like to see this tried in a part of NY controlled by the mob. Whatever you think of the mob, they don’t take kindly to outsiders coming into their neighborhoods and causing trouble.

      • UnCL3

        Glad you qualified “mob” with “mafia”. I thought you may be referring to the Feds for a minute there ;)

        • mike3e4r7

          Lol!

  • williamm

    Mayor Nanny doesn’t have the manpower to stop these thugs. They are being used to enforce the ban on sugary drinks above 16 ounces.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Indeed!

  • notsofastthere

    SEE, no violence or mayhem is gun free zones. Obviously these ‘children’ were just upset the stores sold junk food and sugar products.
    Now, does anyone really need more than a 7 round clip to ward off 20 to 40 violent kids?

    • warpmine

      Arm yourselves with basketballs. Crowd approaches, throw a basketball onto the sidewalk to divert attention. Should work as similar things worked with low information voters.

      • UnCL3

        …or the latest Air Jordans (for MAXIMUM effect)

        :)

        • warpmine

          Come to think of it, your suggestion would create more controversy amongst the crowd therefore that should be considered as plan A.

          • UnCL3

            Maybe some KFC for “fire for effect”…just sayin’.

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        Throw free “Obama phones” at them too.

      • John Galt

        Or through out a bucket of chicken or a watermelon!

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Those evil, “rich” vendors are the true villains. Flash mobs stealing stuff from them is just a form of “redistribution”. They have learned very well from Zero’s example.

      • warpmine

        So is spraying them with lead bullets should be as well. Lead redistribution. Since the the advent of lead free zones, it now appears that they really want and deserve their share of it.

        • UnCL3

          LOL “lead redistribution” … +++++++++++++++++++

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          LOL…we need more lead redistribution.

  • c4pfan

    What about neighborhood watch type thing? Or the Guardian Angels? Nothing like that anymore? Of course, a gun would be best.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

      nevermind!

      • c4pfan

        I don’t know.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

          I was wrong! Sorry!

    • notsofastthere

      These kids were in and out before you could say “OH S**T”
      Only an instant defense item would have saved the day – something like a gun, maybe?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

        Probably would’ve been better off with mace, in that situation I think. Obviously a gun for backup, but you need a sweeping spray to incapacitate ALL of them, then hold them at gunpoint while they are recovering, until the police arrive.

        • notsofastthere

          Mace is illegal in NY (and many other states). A pistol in NY?
          I hear a can of Wasp Spray helps slow down bad guys.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

            Technically, Wasp Spray is a Nerve Agent. In the military, it will light up the Chemical Weapon detector tape. I’m not sure if it’s safe (legally) to use it for that purpose…

            • SineWaveII

              It’s not. It says so on the can. It’s a federal offense to use it for any purpose but to kill wasps (the insect not White Anglo-Saxon Protestants :–))

              • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

                I think that was supposed to mean it was illegal to huff it to get high, but I guarantee you that clause would apply to anyone using it to defend against these flash-mob a-holes…Holder will make sure to put you in prison for violating that clause (just like removing the tag from your mattress).

                • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

                  LOL!! I LOVE ripping those tags off. DOH! Crap, someone’s at the door….

                  LOL! :-D

                • SineWaveII

                  No doubt

              • PatrickHenrysBody

                Zero will pass an EO that says it’s okay to use W.A.S.P. repellent, but only if you’re a radical Muslim.

                • SineWaveII

                  LOL

            • notsofastthere

              Pardon the pun, wasp spray a nerve agent. Well these kids have some NERVE.
              I heard for those afraid of guns, wasp spray was a good thing to keep handy by the bedside or front door. Sounded like a good idea to me and urged my daughters to do that.

              • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

                Different situation. When someone’s in your house, you can use whatever you feel you need to use to protect your life. Simple as that. But when in a newsstand, they could easily argue your life wasn’t in danger, and wasp-spray could lead to permanent injuries and disfiguration (which is illegal…kinda like shooting someone in the kneecaps).

            • Amjean

              Well………one could say that they were trying to help out the bad guys
              because wasps were attacking them. You were only trying to kill the wasps.

              • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

                That would explain their crazy, rabid behavior…they were just trying to escape the wasps and thought that chips would help distract them…one guy even tried to hit a wasp with a snapple bottle! Unfortunately, that bottle ended up hitting a store worker…if only one of them had wasp-spray, this could have all been avoided! LOL!

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jane-Smith/1013997093 Jane Smith

            Pepper spray and large box cutters are also considered a weapon in Canada. I carry both, since I cannot carry my two firearms on the street. If I could, I would invest in a larger handbag.

        • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

          Hold them at gunpoint in some cities, and you’ll be the one they’ll be taking to jail.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

    Nobody important will address these violent flash-mobs because they KNOW there is not a SINGLE FREAKIN’ THING they are actually willing to do that will be effective in stopping these. Not one…so it’s better to turn a blind eye and pretend these problems don’t exist. After all, if something horrible IS going to happen, isn’t it better to not know about it in advance since the worry and despair would be overwhelming. That’s exactly the argument our “leaders” are using now…

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      By the looks of things from the video, it would be racial profiling to continue to press the issue. You’d have the NAACP and the ACLU jumping down their throats as well. Probably Rev Al with his megaphone and JJ stirring up unres…i mean, protests too.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

        Exactly…they’re ALL black!!!!! ALL of them (well, I’ll be safe and say 99.999% of them) are black!!!

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          I thought they all were to have jobs during the reign of the benevolent leader of our socialist utopia. Oh wait, they’re mostly aggressive, out-of-control teenagers. Zero should be pleased. They’d be perfect community agitat…uh…organizers.

      • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

        Not all deserve it. There was an election here in my district….the Republican was listed as the winner in the vote tally the very next day. I found out a couple days later that he did not win…..it turns out they *found* some more ballots that turned the election around.

        • notsofastthere

          Apology to you, I was talking in general terms. NY was my home and I worked in Rockefeller Center for 10 years. It was safe back then, but I saw the changes coming and took the 1st opportunity to move out of high tax NY. Any main city or inner city has their problems. Life goes on

          • http://twitter.com/ozziecastillo Stewie

            No need to apologize. There was no insult, but I responded because I wanted to highlight the corruption that often exists in these liberal bastions. It’s like a coup d’etat, and the citizens are hostages to their own corrupt politicians.

        • clockwindingdown

          Been happening in many states for decades, always seems to be enough “Uncounted” ballots found to swing the vote. Or in other words, the vote integrity has been compromised and made obsolete to the democrat parties wishes.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1396855720 Brian Jones

            The “uncounted ballots” ALWAYS swing in their favor, doesn’t it!!! I have NEVER seen these “uncounted” ballots that were found at the last minute work for a Republican…NEVER!

      • tinlizzieowner

        NYC (like most Democratically controlled big cities), is a cesspool of deviants and thieves, I wouldn’t be caught alive there.

    I think they are just practicin’.

    • clockwindingdown

      At some point one the flash mob members will get the idea to throw something flammable into the shop and toss in a match, at which point the worker will be injured or die.

      This type of thing usually escalates, and just as Mom would say someone is bound to get hurt…

      But hey it’s just kids having fun and nobody is hurt… Except for the business owner who’s profit and livelihood they just stole, or the consumer that will pay higher cost due to insurance increases and/or owner raising costs to stay open… or closing and consumers having to look elsewhere for products…

      You know NYC is safe though, well except for the gang of kids robbing, or lack of self defense, or…, or…, or… did I say they got ride of those evil large soft drinks? Good thing too because these kids were being slowed down when they were running away from a crime seen. See it’s already paying dividends, and the kids are getting more exercise…

    It is happening all over and Philly had put in a curfew and that helped. This is the result of a liberal society where God is eliminated, right and wrong are not taught and everything goes.

    Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
    Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
    2 Timothy 3:1-4

    Buy some large spray containers of bear spray that are in bright colors and spray the SOBs… they will be incapacitated and cough and vomit and also be covered in the florescent color of the spray so you can identify some of them later as well. Screw the bast*ards… fight back.

    Sorry, late to the party here – but isn’t it strange that neither those robbed nor the TV talking head seems to point the ethnicity of those flash mobs?

    Might there be a connection between flash mobs and free Obamaphones?
    Just sayin …

    Btw – these flash mobs look like a foretaste of things to come: ‘war’ on those who work for a living.

      You’re late to the party mum, but never a dollar short. You have common sense no matter what time you show up :-D
      Mornin’ mum! I’m off to bed soon lol.

        Good night, dear ABiC, and sleep well, with lovely dreams {{{{ }}}}!

        It’s still dark over here, but that housewolf thinks it’s time to get cracking – but not before I’ve had my buckets of coffee … which is about now …

        Seeya later!

          Buckets huh? lol. Yes, I’ve made my last round for the night (mornin’) it’s a little after 2 and high time I go into dream mode. xoxo see you later mum. Have a beautiful day!

  • tinlizzieowner

    We can spray toxic defoliant (Agent Orange) all over my White (and Black) ‘Brothers’ during Johnson’s (D) war in Viet Nam but it would ‘racist’ to spray anything (even deodorant), on a mob of ‘Gangsta wanabees’ in NYC.
    I could end this kind of BS in a heartbeat but it might take more than one, 7 round, New York, magazine. ;-) ;-)

    • americalsgt

      We need a Kent State moment. That always seems to take the steam out of this nonsense.

      • tinlizzieowner

        We don’t have too much of this krap happening in southwest Florida.
        #1. Way too many armed Vets around here.

    At least a year behind bars if caught will decrease this non-human nonsense. What do we do to counteract the flash mob in DC that continues to rob us?

    one word is missing before “flash mob” and “violent, thieving mobs”…..
    .
    Is it “ecru”? No.
    Maybe “fuchsia”? No.
    Maybe “amber”? No.
    The color of bho’s son that is.

    I couldn’t watch the whole thing…Black folks have some serious problems, and i am disgusted.

  • Conniption Fitz

    These gangstas wouldn’t be doing this if NYC didn’t have oppressive, foolish gun laws that leave business owners defenseless and vulnerable.

    This calls for a sting operation and a few work camps a la Sheriff Joe to teach these young hoodlums some respect for other people and their property.

    The biggest problems hard-working New Yorkers have are named Cuomo and Bloomberg.

    The typical young black male shows the lack of wise and firm parenting from their own parents and the fathers of our society.

    Abortion, addiction, apathy, abandonment, abuse, anger, adultery are the sins of the older generation that are killing and/or making killers of their young.

  • cheers2all

    Without exception, these so called flash mob youths are always black.

    Until the media, including this one calls them what they really are “black mobs”, they will only intensify.

    Say it isn’t so… this is happening in gun free zones????

    Arm the storekeepers, arm the customers. Problem solved.

  • WordsFailMe

    Put a sign om the counter “Clerk is armed.”

    Looks like a race issue anyway (Author’s note: all the kids in the video and photos were black but then maybe the black kids are just the slowest runners- I could be wrong about the race Maybe the white, Latin and Asian criminals are really fast, a lot faster than the black ones and the non blacks simply avoided the camera’s–that would explain the absence of any race except the American African, FUnny how the steroetypes about race can be wrong sometimes…).

    Why don’t Black Churches intervene? Or Black Abortion clinics? Or the Black Neighborhood Drug Dealer or Pimp Associations. Can’t only be Pakistanis small businesses who are suffering.

    I reconsidered the sign. Probably need to just put a picture of a pakistani standing behind a counter with a sawed off shotgun. Those slow black kids are probably slow readers too.

    • tinlizzieowner

      They’re members of the NY public school system, what makes you think they can read at all? It’s hard to run fast with your pants down around your knees. ;-)
      Young vets and active duty troops who come into my store are always surprised when I ask them ‘where’d you serve?’ with out asking them if they had been in the military first. They always say ‘how did you know I was in the military?’.
      It’s easy, you know what the word ‘Sir’ means and your pants fit. ;-) ;-)
      These little flash mob Punksters need to do a stretch in a combat zone. they would ‘load’ their pants if they ever had to deal with real aggression.

    there an answer but people (not people here, I mean in general) are too pussified to mention it.
    shoot them.

    edit: clarified the people statement

  • Rshill7

    My prescription: Give them lead poisoning. Oh wait, it’s NYC. Nevermind. Just bend over and take it I guess. But before you do that, try this:

    Take both hands, and instead of wielding a gun in them, do that shame, shame, sign language thing. Better yet, put up a “No Mob/No Looting” sign.

    Dang, do I have to think of everything?

    • tinlizzieowner

      I was thinking maybe a sign that says ‘Mob Free Zone’ with a picture of an AR15 on it. But since most of these Punks ditch school and probably can’t read anyway, they would probably think it was a gun store that sells ‘Iced Tea and Skittles’, on the side.
      ;-) ;-)

    Occupy Wall Street, demonizing business owners, entitlement mentality, no jobs because of demoninzing business, run God out of Government and Schools, devaluing life by supporting the murder of 60 million babys through abortion = Which political party???? _________You fill in the blank.

    Obama’s “peeps” strike again, huh? I’m waiting for Doomberg to pass a law banning flash mobs. I’m sure that will work!

    Hornet, Bear or Wasp spray to the eyes and face usually kills ones appetite for theft.

    This is what happens when law abiding citizens are prohibited from having

  • joyfulgiver

    Forget about the camera, How about the owners start arming themselves, that’s what they would do in the old days? Oops I forgot, this admin doesn’t want us protecting ourselves. One shot fired into the air would quickly disperse the hoodlems. Considering the fact that there are NO CONSEQUENCES TO THEIR ACTIONS, this creeps are now emboldened to continue these mass crimes. How about plastering those faces in the video on the walls of every convience store in the city?

  • Rob_Bryant

    Taking their pictures won’t do squat. I don’t care if they’re teens. The only thing these kind of idiots will understand is getting shot in the face.

  • John Galt

    Did you notice that all of the thieves are Black! When you think about it, they are just following their masters lead! Obama steals from the taxpayer, and Blacks just like him steal from the shopkeepers. And where is Bloomberg? What is he doing about this?

    • 80s_kid_wants_rainbow_back

      The majority were black but there were several Latino looking thugs too. You can also clearly see the look of joy on some of their faces as they rob and destroy. These kids need a harsh lesson. The shop owners should get some German Shepherds.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Why are they mostly black people? Oh yeah… unemployment is highest among them. Plus, most of them are Obama voters, so they’re used to taking from others out of “fairness”… because they’re entitled to it.

    pepper spray and the break their legs with a baseball bat. very easy

  • derekspace

    Piers Morgan keeps asking why anyone needs a AR15 with 30 rd mags. However, since most of these are just idiot kids, have an AR15 that fires a 22LR with rock salt or those big rubber bullets the riot sqauds carry. I’d have one mag with real stuff on hand cause some of these miscreants are just low life thugs.

    Just a thought.

    I may be getting old, but this is what kids used to call a “bum-rush.” I went to Elementary and Middle School in The Bronx in the 90’s and this was happening all the time, now it’s just caught on camera.

    The actual “flash-mobs” in places like Philly, Chicago and some cities down south, where they actual flood tourist destinations and popular intersections, and actually rob people…that’s a larger issue.
