Dallas police are investigating a convenience store robbery in which a group of teens attacked a clerk.

The melee, which was caught on video, happened last month at the Exxon Tiger Mart at South Polk Street and Interstate 20, WFAA-TV (Channel 8) reports.

A large crowd of young people entered the store about 10:15 p.m. and began throwing bottles at one another.

When the clerk confronted them and tried to close the door, someone in the crowd punches him, knocking him to the ground.

"Once they got me on the ground, I thought they were going to kill me," C.J. Thomas told Channel 8's Monika Diaz.

Fortunately, two girls helped him up and pulled him out of harm's way.

“Large Crowd of young people”. Usual Suspects. I need not say more.

Only if the girls weren't part of the mob.

How soon until the entryway of these stores becomes a man-trap configuration?

I wonder if there’s any commonality among the “young people” involved?

Nah. It can’t be THAT!

So is this a hate crime? From what I could see it was a couple of black guys beating the white guy up.

Best comment:

If only that store carried fresh, delicious donuts... there would always be a police presence there.

Seriously, I have never taken a journalism class but they must teach not to identify the suspects as black when a crime like this occurs. It’s getting beyond silly at this point when the race od the perps is not identified.

.......I thought they were going to kill me.

Sounds like a plausible deadly force defense to me.

They need to carry fresh fruit and vegetables. Michelle says that’s what they really want but the stores won’t carry it for the poor people.

"I feared for my life" is the magic phrase commonly used for such situations in the court of law. It's like flipping a switch.

Me heap tired of Utes being blamed for crimes we did not do. We Utes are peaceful people. We have a long history of sharing the land and maintaining good relations with our white brothers and sisters.

Mob Helps Itself to Beer and Cigarettes at Sacramento Stores Posted on Thursday, November 21, 2002

It's long been a thing in Sacramento. It was called swarming. It's a "youth" thing. Today's "youths" sometime skip sacking stores and substitute battering whites for fun.

On a recent CoastToCoastAM discussion of flash mobs it was decided that the Irish youths started this more than hundred years ago.. hooligans, you see. You should blame the Irish.. that was the only ethnicity C2C dared to mention. The Irish. It's their fault. They started it. Date: 17 Aug., 2011 -- first minutes of the show Howard Bloom (sp) was on to comment on what George Noory described as "flash kids."

Oh my. This wildin’ fad is going to get bloody. Those two girls who rescused the store clerk better keep their do-good fannies out of mobs because Texas store owners now have a heads up.
