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.

my first thought was suburban homeschool white kids but I was off by a lot.
I’ve noticed all these gangs and mobs trashing fast food outlets seem to have at least one thing in common.......
Better get that NFL dispute settled soon!
Yeah, they’re all either Amish, Swedes or Irish!!!! /sarc

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)!
Time for the owner and manager(s) to get guns and learn to use them.
Here in Texas, the proper response is multiple double-taps. “Pour encourager les autres...”
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.
That’s Curtis Sliwa’s ex doing the story.
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!
I would say Amish but they tend to eschew technology.
Hence the destruction of the hot chocolate machine.
no guts to just lay it out there?
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?
One legally armed citizen could put an end to much of this nonsense...
