Third flash mob theft in past month caught on camera (Portland)
CBS ^ | 4-30-2012

A third flash mob theft in a one-month span in Portland left a mess behind at a convenience store Friday.

Surveillance video showed unwelcome visitors enter the Max Mart and Deli in the 12000 block of East Burnside in Portland late Friday night.

Store manager Prakash Thapa said about 15 to 20 teenagers ransacked the store and stole multiple items.

"Some of them went toward the beer cooler, some went toward the candy section and some of them headed for the milk cooler," Thapa said.

Portland police said a man and woman joined store workers in trying to get the teenagers to leave, and at one point, the man threw groceries at the mob. Several fights broke out, according to police.

Thapa said his two employees tried to stand their ground.

I’m guessing that CCW is not something allowed in Portland?

Why is it that we’re allowed to call them teenagers, but can’t describe other characteristics of the mob?

Why is it okay to mention ages, but not other things?

If anyone is thinking about watching the video because you are wondering what race the perps were, dont bother. Your first hunch was correct.

Prosecutors are convening an Grand Jury to indict the pair.

I used to think the east end of Portland would be a comfortable place to live. But Oregon’s growth management rules have compressed the population growth within finite boundaries—and the result is the inner city taking over what used to be suburbia.

One shot fired into the air would have dispersed these fools in a nanosecond. As for the Zimmerman thing, rather face a jury of 12 then 6 pallbearers.

What bothers me is the quality of the video. Why does all that expensive video surveillance equipment yield such crappy quality video? How can one ID anything with that?

Amazingly, the video at the link identifies them explicitly as "African-American." That's a first as far as I've seen.

Maybe it's contagious.

Because, to some business owners, spending a dollar means spending a dollar. They do not consider the dollars that could be saved or earned from that willingness to spend a dollar.

Personally, if I saw a group of yutes coming to my store door, the door would get locked. By coincidence, I had to use the bathroom.

This situation calls for a good 12 gauge pumpgun.

Watching them all try to go through the door at one time would be a thing of beauty.

Don’t fool with my store or you’ll know why they call me MadMax.

IF OBAMA HAD A BUNCH OF BOYS, THEY’D LOOK LIKE THESE!

“Some of them went toward the beer cooler,...”

Geez, it’s a good thing there wasn’t anyone hurt as a result of the teens drinking the beer—the store owner probably would have been sued.

Next it'll be 'former friends'... or some such bull. Did you hear about the black mob that went after two reporters? Their own paper didn't want to report it...

Yeah, I said on the Texas Board that this is setting the stage for many more potential Travon shootings...

But you have to understand that this is what they all want...

Since they got nothin’ else to do...

Welcome, n00b.

Laugh all that you want, but this is a precursor into things that are coming...especially in the cities.
