Flash Mob Mayhem: Violent Groups Of Teens Leave NYC Businesses In†Ruins
CBS New York ^ | Feb 4, 2013 | Staff

  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.

“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.”

To tell you the truth I rather not have the nanny monitoring and have the bad guys get their just desserts in the here and now.

Yes, I have seen the original. That’s why this was such a good job in more ways than one!

I like your analogy of NY, Chicago and Detroit to “obelisks to Liberalism”.

Can I translate? These cities are more like “limp phallic symbols to law and order” or in street vernacular, “ball-less pricks”.

And some parts of these cities remind me of the pictures of my colon. You can fill in the rest of the image.

Ive got a better idea...organize the flash mob your self then lock them in the store and call police.

Or maybe hire a bunch of Linguini Lovers to work em over with Louisville Sluggers like in Bronx Tale.

“Now yous can’t leave!”

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.

Bloomberg knows the true enemy - and it's not mobs of violent thugs. See Bloomberg's different than us - he's nuts.

“Liberalism is Satanic in origin.
Liberalism is the political expression of the religion of Humanism,
which began with the lie “you will be as gods”.”

Don’t think they’d be trying this in a Korean community business district.

Wow, that's good. It's like when O’Brian was forcing Winston Smith not to just believe that 2 + 2 = 5, but to actually “see” that it does. To truly conquer a populace you have to destroy traditional modes of thought. It seems that large portions of our nation have reached that point. Orwell was a prophet.

Works for me. Daisy chain the perimeter and blow it at 10 yards.
Aim low...some of them are short.

Who will be the designated domestic terrorist? The private gun owner or the taker for social justice? Never let a good crisis drone go to waste.
