“...When Freire looked over at his wife, he saw a young male with his shirt off who punched her in the face, knocking her out. Freire went after the youth and the witness brandished his gun telling the crowd to step back.
When a deputy asked one juvenile to leave several times, the teenager refused and hit the deputy, the release said.
At one point, Destiny McNeil, 20, a relative of the juvenile attempted to intervene in the arrest and was arrested herself, the release said. Another male juvenile also hit the same deputy in the arm and resisted arrest after he was asked to leave the area”

From the comments on the article, this is not an isolated situation. The kids make a nusiance of themselves repeatedly there.
This is criminal assault. A mini riot.
One commenter said that there is a cop on premises (possibly hired by the theater?) but where is the patrol?
When the kids are attacking officers who show up on the scene, it makes you wonder what good a single gun would have done. How long before the rest of the gang would have started to return fire? The numbers make this an unwinnable situation.
