Cops Fear Violence Against Flash Mobs (as liberals do too)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drJGbI07qIE&feature=related ^

UPPER DARBY, Pa. - As police in Upper Darby, Pa., search for more young people involved in last week's flash mob, more adults are thinking about arming themselves with guns.

People are talking about how afraid they are of being caught in the path one of these flash mobs while they're out minding their own business, and they want to be ready.

Law enforcement officials say it's a nightmare in the making because ordinary, private citizens are getting gun permits.

"We have people now that are fearful and carrying guns because of children. How sad is that?" Upper Darby police Captain George Rhoades said.

He said it's all legal.

"It's all self-defense," Rhoades said.

He says about 10 to 20 applications are processed every week in Upper Darby.

Rhoades says with that many people "carrying" and the violent actions of these flash mobs, the worst is bound to happen.

"Now we have this mentality, 'I'm not going to retreat. I'm not going to call 9-1-1. I'm going to be a vigilante and take care of the problem myself,'" he said.

That means flash mob children could be dead, and the would-be victims may have the right, but Rhoades is appealing to everybody to think twice.

They are not children, they are racist black monsters seeking to seriously hurt, maim or kill decent white folks for no good reason.

Shoot them all.

Let’s get Sharpton and Jackson involved!! Such actions cannot be tolerated. We cannot have law abiding citizens arming themselves to protect them and their families from mobs of savages. It just cannot be allowed!!! I am sure those two race baiters will get all the media help they need from the liberal, progressive, state-run, lame-stream media.

Well, look how so many are raised (or NOT raised) for cripes sake, they are raised (by single or working moms alone) taught basic morals (rap and no church) and schooled (by demons) what did you expect?

If a few idiots, and we all know that the idiots consist mainly of young blacks, get ventilated, then they will reconsider where they go to riot, steal, and assault people.

The attitude toward those “children” is astounding. It’s like thinking of an 8 month old, 90 pound, rabid, attack trained German Shepard as a “puppy.” Those “kids” are dangerous, murderous juvenile criminals, not “children.” The sooner a few get terminal lead poisoning, the better.

The worst has already happened in that these wolf packs have already killed innocent people for no other reason than the color of their skin

"Now we have this mentality, 'I'm not going to retreat. I'm not going to call 9-1-1. I'm going to be a vigilante and take care of the problem myself,'" he said.

If the police were taking care of the problem, then we wouldn't have a problem, and that's the problem.

Extremely sad, Captain, as a matter of fact. I find it sad that these "children" are behaving in such a way as to make law-abiding people become fearful, reasonably so, of their actions.

"going to be a vigilante" my a**! A vigilante is looking for the bad guy(s) -- in this (hypothetical) case the bad guys are after the innocent practicing self defense.

Chief Rhoades calls the flash mob “children”, you call them “thugs”. There is only one way to find out who is correct.

The next time a flash mob is reported, Chief Rhoades should answer the call, alone and unarmed.

After the Chief gets out of the hospital, ask him if his opinion has changed.

The Japanese were afraid to invade the USA because they knew that every male citizen had access to a weapon. These ‘Flash Mobs” better learn a lesson from Japan. Even a load of rock salt into your legs from a 12 gauge will restrict your future agility when shooting hoop. Double ‘ought’ buck will put you on wheels for the rest of your life!

I think the police need to track down the "source" of the instigation of these flash mobs. I would be willing to bet "community organizers" are at the root of this.

Serious quetion here. If a huge mob is coming at you and you are armed to the teeth what is legally allowed?

I assume you can shoot everyone that is coming right at you not matter how many keep coming. There could be some serious body count and you can count on the MSM covering it every second for the next two weeks.

Upper Darby police Captain George Rhoades and his paternalistic attitude are a far greater danger than any mob of teenagers.

If what he says is true, we should thank the “flash mobs” for waking people up and making them realize that Capt. Rhoades’ outfit isn't up to the job.

This cop's protecting the rights of black teenagers to terrorize and rob innocent citizens? What's next? Cops protecting the rights of drunk drivers over the rights of people they run over?

Citizens have the right NOT TO BE BULLIED. If the police can't or WON'T protect citizens, then citizens need to protect themselves.

Everyone MUST understand that those that comprise the flashmobs are not afraid of jail, police, momma, or armed citizens. Revenge is their lexicon...

If a huge mob is coming at you and you are armed to the teeth what is legally allowed?

If you are in fear of your life, you are allowed to defend yourself using deadly force. Weapons that can be concealed for carry generally hold no more than fifteen bullets. Mobs typically change direction when one of the pack is dropped. If they don't, you will be overrun.

It makes no difference how many such mob creatures are killed. They are a cancer on society. It is the harm to decent folks that matters.

The knowledge that folks actively defend themselves with deadly force would serve to discourage flash mobs. The MSM might not cover it just because such a message is counter to their viewpoint.
