Teenagers Leave Church Picnic To Riot In East Liberty (PITTSBURGH)
WPXI - Pittsburgh ^ | 7/31/2011

Posted on 08/01/2011 4:32:50 AM PDT by surroundedbyblue

Police had a rough night in East Liberty on Sunday.

A large mob of teens damaged several stores along Penn Avenue.

Our Channel 11 News crew was listening to the police scanner when they heard a call to 911 for hundreds of teens causing trouble in a strip mall.

Police said they went inside the McDonald's, Trader Joes, and finally ended up at the new Target.

Officials said it's fortunate that no one was hurt during the chaos.

When reporter, Dave Bondy, arrived on scene, police were everywhere. At least a dozen officers were ordering hundreds of teenagers to leave the area.

Hmmm......didn't I just hear that Jesse Jackson was inciting this very thing among black youths??

The Target store that was invaded by these thugs has been open less than two weeks. What a complete pack of animals.

These flash mobs are almost exclusively young blacks. (I know it’s racist to point out that fact) So stores are going to have to take some kind of proactive steps to prevent this type of behavior.

Similar behavior has been happening at one of our local malls. So they have instituted a policy that no one between 12 and 18 can be in the mall without an adult in their presence. So all the nice kids who used to go to the mall and hang out have lost that freedom because of a small but troublesome group of minority youths.

This is why it’s not a good idea to open stores in the ghetto. BTW the headline is misleading. It appears these youths were disrupting a church picnic before their next rampage. The pastor didn’t know them.

The feral yutes are coming soon to most urban areas. Be ready for the future. Maybe it is wise to wear a helmet and shoes that you can run in. Good luck.

"Officials said it's fortunate that no one was hurt during the chaos."

I disagree. A few casualties would certainly dissuade similar stunts in the future.

Reverend Oliver said she wants to sit down and talk with those who are responsible for the trouble.

Yeah, that'll work, Rev. Linda. What might help would be forcefully to admonish your congregants about the consequences of sex outside marriage: to wit, packs of feral, conscienceless "community children" disrupting your church picnic and vandalizing businesses.

The police should be rounding these kids up instead of telling them to disperse. Ransom them back to their parents for large fines, and let Mom and/or Dad impress upon the youth the foolishness of their actions.

Problem is, they are not sure who the parents are nor where to find them.

What a country!

WRONG.

Paddy wagons, dozens of them, and crowd them in for processing at Central Booking, downtown.

ENOUGH.

Yes, I think that would make a major impact on the presenting symptom. However, the church’s role is to address the personal immorality which has created the culture in which the “youths” exist.

Teenagers Leave Church Picnic To Riot In East Liberty

Given the way the article is written, we're to conclude the offenders looked like this:

I think they were causing trouble at the church picnic before they attacked the strip mall.

What they really need to do is grab the cellphones of these creeps and see if they can trace the call back to whoever put out the call for the flash mob. Then hit his house, shoot his dog, terrify his family, and beat hell out of him. Finally, toss his agonized carcass in a jail cell.

It’s just the latest fad in black urban culture (and I’m sure many would think me a racist for daring to mention it). Our PC society has allowed the bad behavior to deteriorate until this is what we have. Whitey speaking out won’t do any good, so it’s up to strong black leaders to do so.

“strong black leaders” gain power and wealth by FOMENTING the attitudes that lead to this behavior.

Don’t look for a solution there.

The left is very like Muslims. They are only going to respect forceful opposition.

They’ll probably go back to the revolving doors that can be lock down with a remote, sort of like an animal trap.

Once inside they can’t get out.

Better yet, pay to clean up the worthless punks’ messes with gramma’s welfare check. Put the worthless punks to work, doing it - at minimum wage - to pay back gramma.

I live in Pittsburgh and try to stay out of this area. These mob riots are going on all over the country and it is being under reported or not reported at all. This is NOT reported today in our two local papers. The Target they trashed is less than a month old. It was opened to great fanfare. My wife and I just laughed and knew it would be closed in a matter of months. It may last a bit longer if they open a police substation right in the Target. They have done that in other high risk shopping areas.

Right.

"Dad" is nowhere to be found.

"Mama" is too high on crack to notice.

"Meemaw" does nothing but wail and moan about how her "precious angel don' do nuttin' wrong".

Nobody will pay the ransom.

Then what? Sell them into slavery?

Aside from the basic immorality of slavery, they would probably be totally useless slaves.

Which is a perfect analogy for America as a whole. What would our budgets look like with out the 12% that contribute the majority of violent criminals, rapist and murderers? What would our county budgets look like without the group of which 47% are on food stamps (in Portland, OR near where I live)? How competitive would we be with places like Finland and Singapore if we didn't have to spend a disproportionate amount of time and money trying to get the school performance of the 12% to meet our standards?

How much extra weight can our society carry before it is permanantly crippled from it? I think we're there.

Remember when they opened a Home Depot in East Liberty? opens to much fanfare. It was going to be a boom to the area.
Well, It was being robbed blind. My sister was a Police officer at zone 5 and told me it wont last long.
I think that store is closed now.
