Teens Riot In Manhattan Businesses (another flash mob)
myfoxny.com ^ | 5-24-11

Posted on 05/24/2011 11:53:38 AM PDT by Justaham

It's like a flash mob gone bad. Security footage from a Manhattan Dunkin' Donuts shows a group of youths climbing on counters, throwing chairs and throwing tables in a violent attack on workers.

It happened at the Dunkin' Donuts on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village. A $2,000 hot chocolate machine was reportedly destroyed in the attack.

Similar attacks have targeted other stores in the neighborhood in the previous weeks.

The video shows one of the teens throwing a chair and then running up to grab a donut.

A few of the attackers also grabbed drinks out of a refrigerator near the door, and they all quickly ran from the store.

Some businesses and even residents recently have complained about violence in the area. Most of the business owners didn't want to give their names for fear of retribution.

I’ve noticed all these gangs and mobs trashing fast food outlets seem to have at least one thing in common.......

Mennonites! I would say Amish but they tend to eschew “technology.”

But those pesky Mennonites — you need to keep a close eye on them (but they make great cheese)!

I heard that these mobs are bussed in from Amish country so they can sow their wild oats before getting married, having 12 kids and driving a buggy down the PA turnpike.

This only happens in places subject to "progressive" gun control.

A 12 gauge pumpgun behind the counter would put an end to it.

Yeah, I had the same thought. Those homeschoolers are a tough lot. My understanding is their gang initiation reciting all the prime numbers to a thousand and their gang sign motions mimic a Fibonacci series. Don't mess with them!

We all understand what you’re implying, but have some courage man. Say it. Say it proudly.

Freedom of speech must never be suppressed....... except for criticism directed at minorities, and non-Christian religions, and homosexuals, and communists, and illegal aliens, and any other constituency of the Democrat party.

The goal may be as simple as scoring a few free donuts, or as sinister as preventing the store from doing business. in other words an attack by anachists interfering with capitalist enterprises. Destroying a $2000 machine suggests the latter, but it could also be mindless vandalism. How can a fast food restaurant stay in business if they are afraid to let more than 2-3 people in the store at once?

I would think that here on Free Republic we need not be reduced to speaking in coded language. I would come right out and say what most of us doubtlessly know but my miserably new born-on date prevents it.

Any old-timers willing to speak out and call it like it is?

Ah, but the “S’more” which relies on only fire (ignore manufacturing technology — the Amish do) is a more than decent replacement :)

In New York it’s not wise to shoot someone - even if you fear for your life. Certainly not to protect property.

The cause? Obviously these youth are victims of traditional family values, and too much education and parental discipline.

They all look like Obama voting Holder’s people to me.

So with that let’s remember, they were just acting out and if you don’t like it, you’re a racist.

After all that has happened to these poor folks, how could anyone begrudge them of a few donuts?

My first thought was "urban black males (not men) age 16-24".

It's a better bet than the suburban homeschool white kids.

Stereotypes exist for a reason.

I bet you could extrapolate on that theme and come up with a plausible futuristic novel where minorities can get away with anything and white people are punished if they complain.

Wait, it’s already been done.

Rage filled, feral inner city “kids” with no real parents worth speaking of and heads filled with the sure knowledge from decades of intensive liberal indoctrination that their skin color will earn them a pass because they are going after crackers who owe them something because people they never knew but who shared similar pigmentation were slaves well over a century ago.

Yep, same story, different day.

If suburban white homeschooled kids ever have to resort to violent behavior, they’re not going to be throwing chairs.

My thoughts exactly. Soon...there will be dead 'yoots'.

But it's NYC. They know there is no real danger of gun play. Thanks to their gun grabbing, Lib whack job elected officials.

Yes, 100% agreement. And it's important that these Videos get wide disbursement. A generation ago, the American public wouldn't have been able to see this type of thing. The MSM would NEVER have put this on their nightly news shows, unless it was film footage of white kids causing this type of mayhem or of Rodney King being beaten. That they would show 24/7. You can take that to the bank. These videos are very important so that the public gets a first hand account of the situation without the filter of the MSM News outlets. The MSM is a dinosaur. The MSM is scum of the earth.

When people make it unprofitable or dangerous to serve a neighborhood, the merchants will just leave. Then the community becomes a commercial waste land and then those same people complain that their community has been black lined.

Even pigs know not to defecate where they eat or sleep.

That would likely get the store owner arrested . Better just go to Cabela’s ,Bass pro shop similar stores & get yourself several cans of Bear repellant pepper spray the 1 lbs size can are good ,have a fogger range of approx. 25 feet . Generally non-lethal but really not fun to get hit with .
