Mpls. Police Ponder 8 P.M. Curfew After Youth Mob Attacks

Watch the video. The story doesn't mention the characteristics of the mob members. Wonder why not?

Mpls. Police Ponder 8 P.M. Curfew After Youth Mob Attacks

There have been six mob attacks, in all, since February. Now, police are now wondering if an 8 o’clock curfew keeping anyone 17 and under from two downtown streets will stop the violence.

Nicollet Mall is a destination for many. Outdoor patios where drinks and food are served are a draw not only to people who live here, but also tourist.

Since February, when the sun goes down, later in the evening, mobs of teens take advantage of the darkness and attack.

A video captured on 6th Street and Nicollet shows how the mob of teens viciously attacks innocent people.

Police have made four arrests, but continue to search for others. They’ve beefed up patrols and monitor video from cameras that cover the entire downtown area.

No one would even be having this discussion if parents actually did their jobs and raised their kids to be civilized human beings rather than allowed them to be raised by MTV and what not. Am I right?

Or if more Minneapolisians exercised their right to carry a firearm for personal protection. It's bound to happen sooner or later.

Yes, you are right, but I would add the adjective “black” in front of “parents”.

Flash mobs, and their gratuitous, wanton violence are yet ANOTHER problem of the pathological black “culture”.

It was easy, these black mobs are becoming a common occurrence. It’s amazing how 12% of the population can hold the rest hostage. We’ve done it to ourselves. We’ll have to be the ones to put a stop to it.

Weird. We used to hang out in Mlps in High School. Lots of purple hair, leather, and mohawks. Lots of Sex Pistols, Black Flag, and the Cramps blaring from car stereos.

Never did once get it into our heads that we'd "gang up" on random strangers for a thrilling night of beat downs...

Must be an Amish problem.

Nope.

Ethnic flash mob violence is endemic around the country. Over half of black males under 40 have criminal records.

Yet somehow George Zimmerman is wrong for being concerned about an unknown black male in a hoodie walking through his neighborhood looking at the houses.

I really do feel for those black Americans who get an education and go to work and try to live a normal life. Because they both get decried by the thugs for acting white while still suffering the extra scrutiny of being black that the thugs have brought down on all of black America.

But, then again, black America went 95 percent for thug enabler Obama. In the end, it all comes around.

They just need to open a “gang tagging” season for Minnesota hunters.... let them put up hunting stands downtown, and let ‘em tag miscreants with paint-ball guns firing indelible UV marking paintballs, then the cops can have “black light” checkpoints....

Deport the feral waste to the jungles of Africa and let them enjoy their anti social lives in the real wild lands.

When 13% causes 80% of the problems the answer is obvious.

You’re correct. I do think it needs more specificity, though. I know many white teens whose parents leave much to be desired yet those teens aren’t gathering into mobs and trying to kill total strangers. There’s a pathology at work in these black mobs that seems to be fairly specific to that demographic. I have no clue what that pathology is, however.

And yet the majority population in this country keep their heads buried in the sand, their eyes averted. Keep ignoring the obvious.

For decades we’ve had huge areas of large cities that are a no-go zone. That’s not normal. That’s not how societies should operate. It’s not normal.

This is all part of the upcoming race war that the White House Insider predicted long ago, something being fueled by Obama’s campaign and justice department.

Yet this site will not allow posts from the The Ulsterman report.

Stupid.

You should change “parents” to “mothers” since most of these feral pavement thugs don’t know who their fathers are.

“Curfews are just going to make them want to act out even more,” said Mary Carter. “I don’t feel like that would solve the problem because I feel that kids that would adhere to the curfew aren’t the ones causing the problems to begin with.”

I wonder if this presumably liberal woman would agree with the analogous pro-gun argument that gun bans only affect law-abiding citizens and do nothing to prevent the misuse of firearms by criminals.

These are all minority thugs. Parents? If you are lucky maybe there might be one parent. And they are definitely not raising their kids to be civilized. More likely the parents are out committing crimes on their own or ripping off the taxpayers. Or trading food stamps for alcohol and drugs.

Do you notice how when George Zimmerman is talked about it’s racial, racial, racial over and over again? When gangs of black thugs roam the streets committing crimes there is no mention of race.

Since these animals always run in packs, never forget to carry your backup magazine. You may need all 24-27 rounds.

I was thinking about getting one of the new Springfield XDS in .45ACP, but it's only a 5+1 single stack. With attacks like this going on, I'm reconsidering.

Look at the XDM in .45 ACP. The compact model has a magazine that increases it's capacity to 13 + 1. The standard mag holds 10. That's enough hot lead to cool the jets of any flash mob.

In a sense that has already been done. They have been exiled to the big-city ghettos, where they enjoy their anti-social lives in the really wild areas. It’s just sad for the law-abiding blacks who have to share those areas with them.

“I have no clue what that pathology is, however.”

Isn’t it obvious? AG Eric Holder has demonstrated and said that he wouldn’t prosecute “his people”, and the word is out. There will be no repercussions if you happen to be one of the chosen.

And this just didn’t happen overnight, we’ve been building toward this for at least four decades now, when liberal guilt and male sensitivity became all the rage.

But for those of us who been on the receiving end of crime from young black thugs, this is all recognition of a problem that’s been festering and growing.

And it’s a reminder that you can NEVER successfully delegate responsibility for personal safety away from yourself. When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

Actually, yes, I am. First, WHI has been proven correct on a slew of points that he predicted well in advance. Second, because him and others are sticking their necks out to defeat Obama.

No skin off my butt but I will certainly not donate to a site that refuses the links unless I can see a valid reason.

I see what you're saying Tigerized but this pathology predates Obama. It's most certainly related to the whole welfare mentality but there are plenty of people of other races on welfare yet those teens aren't doing these things. There's something vile at work among this particular demographic and while I see many indications of it--the music, the dress styles, etc.--I don't think that any of those are the actual pathology. I was initially struck by the way the Minneapolis station didn't say a single word about the one trait all of the perpetrators share and instead focused on how bad a curfew would be. I think the real news story is and has been for at least a couple of years the fact that mobs of black teens are attacking adults of other races and no onein any position of authority is doing anything at all to put a stop to it. I agree with several posters: arm yourself and when attacked by these herds start firing. If enough people kill the thugs at the moment of attack word will get around and it will stop. Until then it's only going to get worse.

Actually the only way it will get taken more serious is if it is gay men getting beaten. Minnesotans need more than straight, professional,or suburbanite white people getting treated poorly to begin fueling any real outrage.

This exact thing has happened in E Block not too far away. It was supposed to be the new center of downtown life until it was taken over by black punks and it chased away my former fellow Minnesotans...now they’re left with a fairly newly developed area that has few businesses left.

Who knows...Nicollet Mall is supposed to be the showcase of downtown Minneapolis so maybe this will finally start opening some eyes to the real problems going on there.

A number of women I know still work downtown (mainly at Target) and they don’t like working until dark due to how much more seedy the area has gotten.

I had an article from The Business Insider pulled the other day because it referenced the Ulsterman Report.

I'd never heard of Ulsterman until then.

Exactly, and no one, including the right, has the courage to speak the unvarnished truth regarding the problem. Even Rush-though it's hard to blame him considering the power of the thought police in this country-dances around the edges of the problem when discussing, for instance, the fall of Detroit. It's not just liberalism-other cities which are bastions of liberalism don't have the high crime rates(though they're quickly importing them through "generous" entitlements). Liberalism does make use of it though.

...because a handful of thugs are not locked up for good.

Consider that The Law of Moses made NO PROVISION for long term incarceration; you were forced into a plan to make full and complete restitution, or you got hauled out of town and stoned to death.

Consider, too, that the only place you can REALLY lock anyone up "for good" is in a GRAVE.

The Feral Thug Subculture was born of marriage between the welfare state and the black victimhood mentality. This belief system is unique to blacks because they carry a perpetual chip on their shoulder as a result of slavery. They live in the past rather than looking toward the future. The immigrant groups who started out as part of the underclass when they arrived were looking toward a better future rather than being fixated on the past, and thus were able to improve their position in American society, often within a single generation. They came prepared to work toward an improved future for themselves and their children, not sponge off the government.

Conversely, the feral subculture has an ingrained "gimme" mentality, combined with a deep-seated resentment of those who have succeeded through personal effort.

There's something wrong with a society that pays people simply for existing. Any able-bodied person who has their hand out for a welfare check should be required to produce in some way (even if just picking up garbage by the side of the road, or some other useful contribution to society). Many of these people have no idea how to work. Requiring them to produce and contribute to society in exchange for their living expenses seems like a reasonable step, and might help instill a work ethic, at least in some cases. Of course, under their chosen Obamessiah, the job opportunities for EVERYONE continue to dwindle.
