Teens in a mob assault and rob Center City patrons

The streets were vibrant. The weather was nice.

"The city had a good vibe," remembered one of the women, Maria, who requested her full name not be printed.

But their night on the town was about to become frightening.

Heading their way was a pack of teens roving through Center City after leaving a North Philadelphia music festival.

They were part of about 100 or more young people who had left Saturday night's event, police said, committing a series of violent assaults and robberies, including one against Maria, 25, of North Philadelphia, and her cousin Cecilia, 29, of Havertown.

For some reason, you never see flash mobs like this roaming the streets and robbing people in red states.

Oh right, they’d get shot if they tried it.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them.

It was a matter of time before the left succeeded in encouraging this kind of crap.

People will happily pay more in taxes for added security and for midnight basketball to keep the 'youths' happy.

In the meantime a few crackers get schooled. Its all good.

from the article:

She was on the sidewalk, starting to scream "thief," she said, when someone from behind punched her in the jaw.

She said she turned, jaw throbbing, to see the girl who had hit her standing with five other teens. "What are you going to do?" she said the girl who had punched her yelled.

The teens were laughing, she said. "They were fearless.

Once is all you need if the caliber is large enough, and it allows for twice as many zombies to be “cured”. I personally think that for the first two or three days of any conflict, all shots should be made to the extreme lower abdomen just for the negative effect on the morale of the enemy.

These youths are showing some initiative and taking wealth redistribution into their owns hands. Much more efficient than when done by Democrat politicians. Cuts out the bureaucrat middlemen.

Maybe it's just a phase they're going through...

It's interesting that you mention this.

Since I'm not exactly on the up-and-up as far as the culture of urban youts is concerned, how likely is it that if one urban yout is severely wounded, that the others will try to get him "to the rear," so to speak, out of the line of fire?

If not likely, then go ahead and take as many killshots as you can - thin their numbers as quickly as possible.

On the other hand, if they are likely to do so, then take as many gut shots as you can. Make them spend two guys hauling the third back, and let them all see what it looks like to have a guy's intestines dragging the ground.

Let's face it - street thugs are not fighters. They are bullies. They wouldn't last a day in the face of sustained, determined resistance. If they came up against armed citizen militias who had made up their minds to defend their homes, the urban youts would crumble, run away, and try to find easier pickings. This will be accelerated if they start seeing nasty gunshot wound casualties by the scores.

Here’s how to stop inner city crime mobs cold:

When a crime mob hits a city - everyone in that city on ‘disability’ gets a 50% cut in their check for a month... The few who really are disabled - as opposed to the thousands of scammers - will be hurt, but the rest of them will rope in their delinquent children...

Don't think that would work. The reason these kids are "delinquint" is because their single mothers already don't have control over them as it is.

Not that I don't like the idea of cutting welfare to able-bodied people, of course.

Ask Bernhard Goetz how things worked out for him.

I don’t doubt that some person or persons will Go Goetz sometime soon, but that event and its aftermath won’t be nice or fun. Specifically I doubt it would calm the street scene down at all, but would cause a backlash (a reverberation of backlashes).

Then imagine Eric Holder unleashing the wrath of the entire FedGov if he feels “his people” are in danger.

This individual was arrested for theft of someone's mobile phone. He's probably neither Shaker nor Mormon. He might be mohammedan, though. He's certainly black.

I'm afraid rioting is what's going to happen now when open-air music festivals and rock concerts are scheduled in many areas of the country, particularly cities.

Although, come to think of it, I haven't heard of many such events this summer as in the more carefree past.

I think a combination of high ticket prices, bad economy and a growing fear in many folks of being in big crowds will be shutting a high percentage of outdoor entertainment events down.

The rock bands, rapper, singers of contemporary "music" (ugh) and various ga-ga groups have to be hurting big time. I doubt there's many bookings for huge outdoor concerts as in the past. Since so many of them are lefties, evironmental whackos, starry-eyed idealists and vacant-minded Obama voters, I suspect a diminishing or disappearing income will be a wake-up call to some of them concerning that hopey, changey thing.

I wonder what "Taste of Chicago" (huge, multiple-days, outdoor food festival along the lake-front park area) will be like this summer. I wouldn't go there for a million dollars.

Wowsa! Free food for all in a flash mob!
