NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) 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.
Im 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 theyre 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, its slow.

Okay....let me guess—Obama’s folks?
Meanwhile, Bloomie’s at the podium blaming salt and 16pz sodas for the disturbance...
Shoot the little bastards on sight.
Note these black/hispanic Urban Feral ‘flash mobs’ only occur where their victims are disarmed.
The Big Sh*tty residents deserve every crime against themselves because they insist on being commies, disarmed commies, too.
If the mobs cull the gun grabber urbganites - it can only improve America, as there are far too many commies/Democraps in America.
I recently slapped my forehead in being shown how we lost the executive because the RATS are so adept at the electronic age.
We should'a known ... zero came in lovin' his blackberry and would never part with it ... remember ?
Flash mobs that do bad things are lefty motivated and organized.
(and may be even paid)
Too bad NYC is a gun free zone. A couple of cases of lead poisoning would likely take care of the problem.
Violence in NYC? No kidding. I always laugh when liberals on air groan about how supposedly violent and what a bunch of kooks the Tea Party movement are. Yet, there is gun violence in Chicago and most other Democrat-controlled big cities. Liberal rallies such as Occupy Wall Street are noted for attacks against police and areas strewn with garbage everywhere. When a WTO meeting takes place in any city around the world business owners start boarding up their shops and stores because of kooky left-wing anarchists physically destroying everything in their path. Enough with supposed right-wing violence. It’s happening under liberal control.
You're lucky to get a cop to come take a report the next day.
Actual crime-solving is not on the agenda.
“teens” = not white
I agree that many leftist organized mobs do “bad things.” I don’t know whether or not some mobs like this are paid to wreak havoc, or not. I just chalk these incidents up to the fact that the thugs like this feel untouchable right now and their boldness is encouraged by examples such as the non-prosecution of the NBPP in Philadelphia voter intimidation case, for example.
Lots of tough talk about shooting them, but then you end up in jail as another George Zimmerman...headlines calling you an “evil, vicious racist who shot a sweet honor student.”
“What do you think needs to be done to stop the teenage mobs? Leave your comments below “
00 Buck comes to mind.
But this is NY, so light a cigarette, suck on a 32 oz. soda and throw salt. They’ll cower in fear and disperse, until Bloomberg gets there and takes you away for possessing life threatening items and endangering the public.
See Obomaphones and the disastrous consequences.
(The road to hell is paved with liberal intentions)
Two things stand out, Nowhere in the article does it say that all of these teens look just like the Presidents son, nor does it explain that this crap would never happen in the city I live in here in Arizona, or any city in Arizona. All these people that look like the Presidents son would not survive this type of action here.
I have gotta admit, as far as the logisitics and the “business model” for a new, re-thought form of criminal
activity goes, the flash mob is a pretty good one.
In this case you have almost certainly disarmed victims,
the storeowners, and a random public who could witness these
crimes (the random public) being equally disarmed, in fear for their lives by being totally outnumbered by the mob.
A citizen, or two, MIGHT intervene, just MIGHT , if he saw one perp wrecking/robbing a place of business, but if the mob is one or two dozen , all bets are off.
This is domestic terrorism plain and simple.
Flash mobs? A flash mob is a group of performers who show up in Grand Central Station at the appointed time and do a spontaneous artistic impression then disperse peacefully. These are marauding bands of vicious criminals wreaking havoc who should be shot on sight.
