The purpose of this site is to document dangerous, violent, or otherwise unwanted flash mobs and group mayhem. I find these crimes to be particularly galling because they're indicative of societal dysfunction, rather than an individual pathology.
Definition of a flash mob: A large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse.
Definition of a wilding: The activity by a gang of youths of going on a protracted and violent rampage in a public place, attacking or mugging people at random.
I fully admit it's often difficult to distinguish between a flash mob, a wilding, a riot, an unruly crowd, a swarm robbery, and a fight with an unequal number of participants. One incident often has elements of all those things so you may find some of the flash mobs I've identified don't fit your definition.
I only include events with four or more participants. I am not including group "brawls" from nightclubs, bars, house parties or sporting events. While this list may seem comprehensive, the actual number of incidents is much greater. For example, I won't document smash and grab robberies that occur without witnesses or video since I can't confirm they were group attacks. In a similar vein, if the media doesn't pick up on a story, I can't list it.

There are links to each mob incident.
“There are links to each mob incident.
I assume most took place in Lancaster Co. PA?
I copied and pasted the data in to an Excel spreadsheet to count the incidents per year:
I sent the guy an email and gave him a link to the post.
I invited him to join FR if he isn’t already a member.
He has a very good site!
(To the ladies .. The person may very well be a lady, I don’t know so I used the ‘him’ descriptor out of ignorance) 8)
I just assume that most stat geeks/political nerds are men by default, just based on personal experience.
Nice site. I question whether an attack by 4 or 5 constitutes a mob. I’m sure it appears to be mob to the victim, but in reality it’s more like a ‘gang’.
Perhaps we could start “flash mobbing” the individual incidents to the worthless left-wing “media” slugs, since these poor white-guilt inflicted souls just “aren’t aware” of such goings-on. Maybe they can find a “cracker” fighting back in one of them, so they can “get right on it” and do their constitutional duty. I won’t hold my breath.
I carry a S/W .357 in my car...I’m considering switching to my 9mm because I’m afraid I may encounter a much target richer environment than I have been anticipating.
And now, to add the names........
A mob can be two or more depending on the circumstances
Second, there have been far more than I thought.
Third, I'll bet there will be no more MSM reports as the left is quite concerned as to the possibility of a backlash--they have not yet consolidated their control!
Only one in Texas.
These flash mob ‘men’ are not exactly the sharpest knives in the drawer. It would take much to make them believe there is a hidden camera on every corner.

Violent Flash Mobs bump
Does anyone think that if these were all mobs .. composed of, let’s say, Amish .. the media would hold back the reporting of it as they are now?
In view of this incident the definition seems a tad broad if one is going to consider these things a consistent threat.
Perhaps my math is incorrect, but I counted 147 incidents listed.
What I find to be most interesting is that prior to BHO being elected POTUS, there were only 17 total flashmob incidents between 2002 and 2009, but the incidents skyrocketed beginning the day after BHO’s inaugeration.
17 incidents (4/20/02 thru 10/26/08)
130 incidents (1/21/09 to present)
Perfect example of Mawgli’s “Hope & Change”.
There were cameras on every corner, or nearly so, for the London riots. It didn’t seem to slow the thugs down much.
I personally don’t care what you call it— 4 people atacking me is a mob. AND 4 people too many!
