Turns Out Philly Street Mob is From School That Got $1M From Oprah
The Blaze ^ | 8-10-11 | Dave Urbanski

Posted on 08/10/2011 10:22:47 AM PDT by STARWISE

A new video of Philadelphia street attacks has surfaced—and this time the teen perps are students from a charter school that received a $1 million donation from Oprah Winfrey, according to Fox 29, which obtained the footage.

Caught On Tape: Philadelphia Teen Mob Attack: MyFoxPHILLY.com

The incident occurred July 29—the same day flash mob attacks took place in another section of the city—just 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.”We’re very very upset about it, that any student, but particularly a student that’s been in a Mastery school, would behave like that, to think that that’s okay, is very disturbing.”

Mastery’s parent company received $1 million from Winfrey last September as part of her Angel Network.

Show me an animal that cares about how much money you give them. All they want is for you to supply them free food and free housing. They don’t care about education that you believe they should have. An animal that can’t learn is eliminated from the herd. Do we ever learn these simple things in life?

Yesterday’s QOTD was “Remember how we spent all that money “for the children”? These are the children.”

Another example of “Do-Gooders” like Oprah doing the most harm.

“...perps are students from a charter school that received a $1 million donation from Oprah Winfrey...”

Is anyone surprised that a generation brought up as irresponsible, spoiled, undisciplined, ungrateful, lazy and unreasonably demanding wastrels will NOT pass up an opportunity for anarchy?

Mention education and they say "Edgeumucation" and walk away laughing.

Charter schools are going to turn out to be total hotbeds of anarchy and black studies violence. When Cornel West is dedicated to creating as many of them as possible, you have to know there’s gonna be a problem.

Oprah's 1 million is a fraction of what the federal government has given them and I'll bet most of those rioters got a free cell phone funded by the taxpayer.

I asked in this thread, who gave them their phones?

Who paid for flash mob phones?

No cellphones should be given to children in welfare families.

Take away the damn phones!

I bet if it was a gang of white criminals forming flash mobs to beat and rob people, the police would have no problem tracking down their social network accounts and rounding them up.

You are right. I was thinking of allowing the moms to have the phones for medical emergencies, etc.

Back in the 1950’s, a dear relative of mine had to resort to welfare to feed her 5 kids after her bum of a husband walked out on them.

She would lose assistance if the welfare office found out she had a phone, a TV, or a part-time job. She had to go downstairs to her neighbor’s to use the phone. Her baby had bad asthmatic attacks at the time.

Now, we seem not able to balance charity with justice when dealing with “the poor”...who incidentally get over $30,000 worth of assistance a year per family,
and pay no taxes.

“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.

The quote is from freeper "rdcbn" and is located here:

Remember back a few years ago, the buzz word for any new government welfare project was ,”well, it's all for the children”

These are the children it was all for. We have been had.


Brilliant. I vote it as Quote Of The Year.

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.

This is the result of decades of the welfare state....

...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.

Two have turned themselves in per this report:
http://www.philly.com/philly/news/breaking/20110810_Two_students_in_Old_City_mob_attack_surrender.html?cmpid=125219969

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.

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.

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 . . .
