Caught On Tape: Philadelphia Teen Mob Attack: MyFoxPHILLY.com
The incident occurred July 29the same day flash mob attacks took place in another section of the cityjust blocks from Mastery Charter High School. Students in the video face expulsion or suspension, school officials wrote in a letter to residents in the area where the attack took place.
Sources told Fox 29 that man attacked in the video was hospitalized with injuries to his head and teeth. No charges have been filed so far, police told Fox 29.
It makes me sick, said Mastery CEO Scott Gordon.Were very very upset about it, that any student, but particularly a student thats been in a Mastery school, would behave like that, to think that thats okay, is very disturbing.
Masterys parent company received $1 million from Winfrey last September as part of her Angel Network.
“I was thinking of allowing the moms to have the phones for medical emergencies, etc.”
I could see maybe giving them a phone that can only call 911. I do not think that I should be forced to pay for any freeloader to make their routine personal calls.
At one point in my career, my secretary shared an office with the welfare secretary. One day the welfare secretary decided enough was enough and quit. She'd figured out that they were getting more in free dollars than she was working.
...elections have consequences....
...the people of Philly who actually go vote evidently like what is going on because they send the same old people to the city government time after time.
I bet that this behavior from the youts has been going on for decades too....the only difference being it was blacks assaulting blacks.
Everybody knew but never said anything about it and up to now, no city council person or Mayor ever addressed the problem, or maybe even refused to recognize that there was a problem.
We can hope that Mayor Nutter's admonishments will start a change...
..but I am not going to hold my breath waiting for his words to penetrate the youts skulls.
...nothing will change until the welfare system is changed so that people on welfare lose their "right" to vote. A small step would be a requirement that people have to show that they are paying something into the system...
..that they have some "skin in the game"....
...otherwise, they will vote every time for the politician who promises them the most stuff.
Throwing money at problems doesn't work. You can't polish a turd.
Two have turned themselves in per this report:
Didn’t go to the link about Nutter but heard parts of his Aug 7 “sermon” at his church on KYW 1060 the Monday after; he blistered the behavior of the mobs and of the parents who allow their children to behave this way.
My daughter works at a nursing home and many of the CNAs work long enough to qualify for unemployment benefits, then quit to get unemployment. I always thought if you quit, you would not receive benefits, but my daughter assures me it happens.
Waiting for the liberal Democrats to make a statement of how much the taxpayers' trillions have done for Lyndon Johnson's "ingrate society" and the "war on poverty". Waiting.... waiting.... crickets....
I’ll say .. God bless him ..!! Finally! One of their own dishing out the truth about these thug animals.
ADDRESSING the “butthead” youths who’ve been mobbing Center City and the “sperm donors” who’ve passed for their fathers, Mayor Nutter thundered from the pulpit of his church yesterday in uncharacteristically fiery remarks.
“You’ve damaged yourself, you’ve damaged another person, you’ve damaged your peers and, quite honestly, you’ve damaged your own race,” he said. “You damaged your own race.
‘Take those God-darn hoodies down, especially in the summer. Pull your pants up and buy a belt ‘cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt.’
Is Philly the new Detroit?
I’m sure Oprah is very proud!
It's my understanding that that's already the case.
Any cellphone that can power up, whether it has an active account or not, will connect a 911 call.
I'm open to correction on this point . . .
Those “students” should all be expelled. They were all in on it. Mob mentality.
