Questions Arise Over Whether 'Flash Mob' Attacks in U.S. Cities Motivated by Race
Fox News ^ | 8/10/2011 | fox news

Posted on 08/10/2011 3:44:31 PM PDT by tobyhill

Police departments in several cities around the country are investigating what appear to be incidents of "flash mob"-generated violence, in which packs of dozens or even hundreds of youths appear seemingly out of nowhere to commit assaults, robberies and other crimes against innocent bystanders.

The motive and circumstances surrounding the attacks that have resulted in numerous arrests around the country are being investigated -- and law enforcement officials in at least one city are looking into a possible racial component to the crimes.

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, who recently imposed a stricter curfew in response to the city's latest attack, addressed black youths directly from the pulpit of his church on Sunday, reportedly saying, “You have damaged your own race.”

"If you want …anybody else to respect you and not be afraid when they see you walking down the street, then leave the innocent people who are walking down the street minding their own damn business. Leave them alone," Nutter told a mostly black congregation at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in West Philadelphia, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Does “KILL WHITEY” offer any clues?

The Flash Mobs on Greenline in DC's Metro that occur in L'Enfant Plaza station are DEFINITELY racially motivated.

They are all black and the passengers going through that station at the time of day the attacks occur are always white people leaving work late.

The attackers have to actually go out of their way to get to that station to attack people.

Fortunately Virginia riders pack heat as a matter of course and it's just a question of time when one of the attackers ends up hurt.

Some blacks have become emboldened by a black Presidency. The “I’m gonna get what’s mine” mentality is quite obvious.

Cloward and Piven are merely IGNANT imaginers. People aren't motivated that way. The attackers are always YOUT', and mostly black ~ and they are unemployed and have cellphones.

They have nothing better to do than "show their a%%" so they do.

If Cloward or Piven were around these kids would have knocked the old white people on the ground to steal their stuff.

“London rioters: ‘Showing the rich we do what we want’ “

To: All

Written by Hastings a British historian about the riots in England. It holds true for our hip hop low life scum we have here ; This is BRILLIANT

So there we have it: a large, amoral, brutalised sub-culture of young British people who lack education because they have no will to learn, and skills which might make them employable. They are too idle to accept work waitressing or doing domestic labour, which is why almost all such jobs are filled by immigrants.
They have no code of values to dissuade them from behaving anti-socially or, indeed, criminally, and small chance of being punished if they do so.
They have no sense of responsibility for themselves, far less towards others, and look to no future beyond the next meal, sexual encounter or TV football game.

Behind bins: Rioters in Hackney stand in front of a makeshift barricade
They are an absolute deadweight upon society, because they contribute nothing yet cost the taxpayer billions. Liberal opinion holds they are victims, because society has failed to provide them with opportunities to develop their potential.
Most of us would say this is nonsense. Rather, they are victims of a perverted social ethos, which elevates personal freedom to an absolute, and denies the underclass the discipline — tough love — which alone might enable some of its members to escape from the swamp of dependency in which they live.
Only education — together with politicians, judges, policemen and teachers with the courage to force feral humans to obey rules the rest of us have accepted all our lives — can provide a way forward and a way out for these people.
They are products of a culture which gives them so much unconditionally that they are let off learning how to become human beings. My dogs are better behaved and subscribe to a higher code of values than the young rioters of Tottenham, Hackney, Clapham and Birmingham.
Unless or until those who run Britain introduce incentives for decency and impose penalties for bestiality which are today entirely lacking, there will never be a shortage of young rioters and looters such as those of the past four nights, for whom their monstrous excesses were ‘a great fire, man’.

NO. They are motivated by the HATE rhetoric emanating from the President of the United States.

Hate the bankers
Hate the companies
Hate the oil company
Hate the coal company
Hate the rich man
Hate the corporate jet owner
Hate the yacht owner
Hate the rich
Hate the car maker
Hate the light bulb

0bama spews forth hate and the result is violence in the street. His rhetoric is divisive and destructive.

Do those assaulted by these mobs ask that question? If there’s a difference, it lends credence to the idea that people see what they already believe. And those whose job it is to spin, know what they want, and don’t want, to see. And that’s more important to them than this being addressed with blind justice, as justice is meant to be. Hurt feelings of those who share racial traits or sympathies with the attackers have often been more important than the actual physical injuries, even lives, of those attacked. And this must end now.

According to the Census Bureau the ratio of America that identifies itself as Black is 12.6%. According to the cameras that capture the Flash Mobs Attacks the ratio of attackers that are identified as black is running exactly 100%.

Ya Think even a Politician could figure out the answer to that question. As a good friend that is retarded says, "I may be retarded, but I'm not STOOPID!"

Is the sky blue?

In Dallas, it's been that color all day long for as long as I can remember this summer.

Is grass green?

In Dallas, the color of grass is currently yellow or brown.

Is Rain water?

Please define the terms "rain" and "water". They are unfamiliar to many of us in the North Texas area.

This concludes a small detour into levity into what really is a critical matter with these flash mobs.

No dads. Many moms unable to cope. Preachers telling the kids it’s whitey’s fault, telling them that Islam is the way to go, telling them that they shouldn’t conform to the system, because it’s evil. State and federal officials running interference for the poor darlings. Midnight basketball.

School teachers telling them they don’t have to conform. Telling them that ebonics is their right. Telling them that society is against them. Telling them that the white man has kept them down.

Society tells them that the rap culture is productive, no matter if it includes very derogatory gender stereotypes against women.

Even this last week, we’ve seen someone state that middle-class whites have gotten all the wealth at the expense of blacks. Never-mind that they studied and or worked their asses off for decaades to get it.

The NAACP and the ACLU calling everyone racists who dared confront these minority kids.

Why would these kids ever think they were responsible for their own actions? Why would they think they had to do things that would enable them to gain wealth? Who has told them this message?

Nobody. Whitey tried and was attacked for it.

Well, now we’re all paying for what was enabled, and you know what, whitey will still get the blame.

The Flash Mobs on Greenline in DC's Metro that occur in L'Enfant Plaza station

Is this a regular occurrence? I sure haven't heard of it before.

I read today that the press doesn't publish these things for fear of encouraging more of the "youth" to emulate this behavior. But people need to know or we'll never be able to deal with the problem.

Of course, under this government, it's not a problem but a strategy.

The situation is there are vast numbers of federal cops in that area who go through that station ~ on their way home to Virginia.

The shooting will be done by cops ~ I don't think the kids realize who they are messing with.

Shoot first, ask questions later.

If you're in a city and you don't think it can happen where you're at believe me, you are wrong.

This is a trend being propagandized on social media and being posted on websites to honor their doings.

Youtube is trying their hardest to take it down as fast as they crop up.
