Flash Mob Loots 7-11 Store in Germantown, Maryland A flash mob invaded a 7-11 convenience store in Germantown, Md., early Saturday morning, stole all the snacks and candy they could get their hands on, then left the store as quickly as they came.
"It was anarchy for 60 seconds," said Montgomery County Police spokesman Paul Starks. "We've counted at least 28 individuals we can see on the surveillance tape." Starks said police suspect the mob was organized using social media like Facebook or Twitter.
The term flash mob was first used to describe impromptu gatherings of people to sing or dance in a public space, alerted by text, email or Twitter, but the Germantown incident is just the latest in a summer when flash mobs have turned from spontaneous, fun events to outright felony.
On July 4 in the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights, a group of 1,000 youths organized through social networking sites to fight and disrupt an event. In Washington, D.C., a flash mob robbed a high-end clothing store earlier this summer.

flash mobs are bad too...*smiles*
govt provided cell coverage and $10/month subsidized internet
the Baraqqis are giving them most of the tools needed
Nov 6, 2012 may be the primary operation
Yes, I noticed they just happened to leave out one key element the flash mobsters have in common that might be informative and useful for the public to know.
This part struck me as a particularly funny example of bad writing:
“the Germantown incident is just the latest in a summer when flash mobs have turned from spontaneous, fun events to outright felony.”
This failure of a journalist wants us to believe the violent flash mobs are really just good, clean, all-American flash mobs exactly like the people singing in mall food courts, until something goes horribly wrong. I’m seeing a new hit reality show for FOX: When Flash Mobs Attack!
We all better applaud hardily the next time a theatre troupe or vocal choir stages a surprise performance, or they might just decide to go on a violent rampage!
First it was Flash Mobs.
Now we have Flah Mobs.
What's next? Flan Mobs?
As an American with a Cuban heritage, the Flan Mobs sound DELICIOUS!!! :D
No. "Flush Mobs." They sneak into the bathrooms of buildings, flush all of the toilets at once and cause the plumbing spontaneously explode.
The police are searching for them but have nothing to go on.
Nope. Flash robs.
That’s not anarchy. That’s pure democracy in action. Now do you understand why our Founding Fathers hated democracy?
I just pretty much adore flan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had better start brain-storming about how to stop this or there is going to be a flash mob war started. Curfew? I doubt that will work. Needs to be some kind of unpleasant result for the kids doing this. Paint ball? Birdshot? Pepper spray?
Arm all convenience stores with M203s!!!
That’s what most of us would like to do, but we have to deal with this issue with stealth. Infiltrate a black undercover agent into a high school and let him/her rat out the flash mobs intentions and set up counter measures. Follow some home and arrest them.
This is what happens when you deliberately post the incorrect headline.
