Another flashmobbery took place at a 7-11 in Montgomery County, Maryland. Apparently, the police did not respond until the looters had ransacked and left the store.
From the video: A 7-11 in Montgomery County, Maryland was hit by a flash mob on August 13, 2011. The clerk activated a silent alarm, but police waited until the mob left the store before responding. Further, according to the video, the officer refused to investigate the crime, and only viewed this incident as shoplifting.
WTF? I know it's Montgomery County but c'mon!
Sounds familiar ( UK ) ...
Those in command are just waiting for someone with the wrong melanin percentage to defend themselves...then it will be a racial issue.
What was the officer's race?
Police waited to respond until after the mob left the store? Did I read this correctly? The cops waited until after the criminals finished up a crime in progress????
I can imagine that if you have a mob, that one police car would call for backup to help them, but do cops now just let criminals do whatever they want to do? Or is that the policy because this is a non-violent crime? Or is that the policy because blacks are a protected class under civil rights laws, and cops are afraid to intervene???
This hardly gives you confidence in the Montgomery County police and their job of protecting and serving the public.
Yeah! The Mutha of all shoplifting incidences.
This is exactly why, in Atlanta, a lot of open-past-midnight convenience stores require you to be buzzed in through a locked door.
In Montgomery County, the police refuse have long refused to protect innocent citizens from illegal alien criminals. Now, things have escalated: they apparently will not protect the public against feral Black youth. If you live there, leave. If you cannot, arm yourselves. You are on your own.
I can see this. Flash-mob invasions happen so quickly, a cop could be next door and not make it in time.
“This hardly gives you confidence in the Montgomery County police and their job of protecting and serving the public.”
You didn’t get the memo from the USSC? Protecting and serving the public is not their job.
Well how encouraging can it get.
Thanks Holder and Obama
Your attitude is going to come back and bite you in your azz.
You are trying to start race wars here in America.
You read it correctly, but that's not what the video said. The news story in the video just said police showed up after the vermin were gone, not that they waited for them to leave. A little bit of creative journalism there.
The race of the officer doesn’t really matter. The Police today don’t take on violent mobs, they shoot innocent surprised people and dogs in their homes. It’s a lot safer (for them).
“The cops waited until after the criminals finished up a crime in progress????”
For bad cops, it’s a professional courtesy.
“If you live there, leave. If you cannot, arm yourselves... You are on your own”
I unfortunately do live in Montgomery County. Leaving at this point is not an option. That being said, I have definitely changed my lifestyle. I don’t go to any sort of store at night (unless for an emergency prescription) and yes.. we are armed. Counties in the area are no better: Frederick, Baltimore, Howard etc.. A few more years before my husband can retire and WE ARE GONE. I was born and raised in this county. I cannot tell you how much it has changed.
Chief Moose's old department. And FWIW, Montgomery County aspires to be the Berkeley or Madison of The East.
Are any of you as amazed as I am that someone could convince a crowd of that size to commit an act like this? I don’t know of a single person that I could convince to engage in something like this.
I like the Kansas City mall incident that Drudge has tried to link to, the mayor goes there, shots ring out and he has to hit the ground.
When seconds count, the police are just minutes away.
“the officer refused to investigate the crime”....
The pump won’t work ‘cause the vandals took the handles.
The the psychopath at 1600 will lecture whitey on his “stupidity.”
Officers race? I’m not sure how that would really matter. While one might think that a Black officer would be less likely to take on Black youths, it is my experience that most black officers are exactly the opposite, less forgiving of black youths. As one of them told me “I busted my ass to be a productive citizen, I got not no sympathy for em”.
Can anyone provide a listing of these type of happenings that have occurred in the past year?
Getting the first few might be a problem but it is easier to recruit once you have a small group.
Not to mention drugs which always seem to have a funny way of doing things to the thought process.
LBJ’s grandkids (as Robert Wenzel might call them).
“Can anyone provide a listing of these type of happenings that have occurred in the past year?”
That would be good to know... Maybe some of us do not even realize that this has happened in our very own cities.
Obamah-Mob - All your stash belong to us!
I assume that the combination of a "food desert" in their area and flashmob hurting one of the few sources of food they do have is bad luck. These two couldn't possibly be related, could they? These people are just hit hard by society through no fault of their own community.
Many 24 hour convenience stores in New Orleans have a bank teller window with a large drawer and bullet-proof glass. You tell them what you want and put your money in the drawer. They slide it out with your change.
Sanctioned preferred demographic theft ping....
At some point, there will be bulletproof glass seperating all of civilization from the ferals.
What's the difference if it's done by one person or 20 people? No one was injured.
The assertion that cops 'waited' until the mob was gone isn't backed up by any evidence. If it was a silent alarm, how would the police know the situation? Were the cops in the bushed scared to confront the perps? Probably not.
What if the nearest cop was 10 minutes away and the mob only took 6 minutes to remove the items? Let's think a little bit here, people.
You racists on FR disgust me. These youths are simply selecting reparations.
I think eventually these bad neighborhood stores will just be big vending machines, push a button with what you want and it comes out through a slot.
Oh. Is that all. Hell, then. Just chalk it up to the price of doing business and move on.
WTF is right: Detectives should be trying to nab a sample, charge them to the max, and settle for getting the names of the ringleader(s). The masterminds are NOT shoplifting, as this is a grand larceny and a felony.
I stand corrected if the facts were not accurately listed here.
I was responding to the article saying that the cops waited until the mob was done before going there. It made it sound like the cops just don’t intervene in a crime in progress. If that’s not accurate I stand corrected.
Many of you have missed the point.
This story shows the ignorance of the Washington DC based black population that has moved into Montgomery County.
While flash-mobs in other cities have moved on high priced merchandisers the dipstick ignorant POS troops from Montgomery invade a 7-11 and steal slurpee’s and Moon pies.
These are the people who elected Governor O’Malley, Steny Hoyer, Mikulski and Cardin.
Nothing dumber than a S.E. Washington refugee or a P.G.County neighbor going next door for a Flash Mob scene.
“What’s the difference if it’s done by one person or 20 people? No one was injured”.
I disagree. There is a dramatic difference in your comparison. One person swiping a candy bar secretly is shoplifting. Why this is so disturbing is that a MOB/GROUP of approximately 3 dozen people stole items without fear of the police, customers, or the clerk. They use a large group to ensure that no one will stop them. No one was injured... yes. This time. However, the same group of people could easily have overtaken one or two law enforcement officer or beaten to death/raped anyone in the store that they wanted. IMHO.
The food desert probably develops through business losses. Mom and pop grocery stores can’t withstand shoplifting losses and robberies. Eventually they fold. Larger chains just close and move out when the profits don’t meet their standards.
I feel for you. When you get the chance, move on over to Virginia.....we pack heat.....everywhere. We don’t have the problems that other states have.
That was looting, not shoplifting.
So now the cops aren’t even bothering to pretend to respond.
Obama, Reid, Pelosi and their democrats, have been a flash mob attacking our country. Holders people are simply following the example of their leaders.
If they can prosecute pro lifers under RICO, why not flash mobs? Oh, Holder's People?
