200 in rampage at Mall of America as brawls erupt in food court after rumors...
Daily Mail ^ | Dec 27, 2011 | Craig McKenzie

Ten people have been arrested after 200 young people rampaged through Minnesota's packed Mall of America on the busiest shopping day of the year.

The mob sent frightened shoppers scrambling for safety as 10 fights broke out at the same time, forcing some stores to shut.

Brawls started after rumours swept the mall in Bloomington that rappers Lil’ Wayne and Drake were visiting.

A group of 50 youngsters were filmed on cell phone cameras throwing dining chairs at each other in the food court.

Video captured police officers walking with their guns drawn, but they later said this was in response to reports of gun shots being fired.

What is it about Lil Wayne and Drake that inspires the throwing of chairs?

Nothing.
It's just an excuse to misbehave.

The media must be reading my posts since events that occur where violence flares and coincidentally happens to almost always have Black people involved I title as

another Diversity On The Rampage moment brought to you by Obama, Holder, and Leftists everywhere!

I didn't mention ANYTHING about Alien Abductions, so what has Ron Paul got to do with my comments?

I am begining to think that my carry rig should err on the side of much higher capacity. Granted my trusty .45 ACP will stop a good 3 or 4 using double taps, but I’m now starting to think that a 9x23 double stack with say 15 to 20 rounds and two spare mags might be the way to go.

sheesh - it is getting crazy out there.

I know - that was weird. “Celebrities might be in the mall, so throw chairs around the food court.”

If I heard Tom Selleck was in the mall, I wouldn’t pick throwing chairs as the first obvious course of action!

Maybe the chair throwing started when they realized they weren’t actually there?

Could be. I'd just be grateful Tom Selleck didn't see me looking like a slob ;-).

Yes, that Kel-Tec PMR-30 (which holds thirty rounds of .22WMR in a single magazine) is looking better and better. A friend and I were just discussing its merit as a "zombie" gun. Fifty percent better than the FN Five-Seven with its 20-rd mag, I'd say.

Too bad the Calico helical-feed rigs are so bulky.

My guess was that the two rumored "artists"' fans are simply two groups that don't get along. You know, a tribal thing (cue the Dexter Lake Club / roadhouse scene from Animal House).

"What's your major?"
"What?"
"WHAT'S YOUR MAJOR?"...

This appears to be a video of the actual “youths” not one of a bunch of cops after it happened.

Whenever I argue that the government has no business banning automatic weapons I always hear the arguement that normal people have no need for fully automatic guns.

Any more I just point to Minnesota as my response. Between the racially motivated attacks on whites at the state fair and multiple other incidences of rioting blacks it shows the need for for a person to be able to defend himself against 20+ attackers.

Drake and Lil’ Wayne are widely alleged to be closeted homos so maybe there was a rumble between pro and anti-gay factions.

It’s just kids being kids. I still remember the time back in the 1970s when band members of REO Speedwagon were rumored to be at the shopping mall - down by the food court. Boy, was that ever a mob scene. The Orange Julius was trashed.

“PRIMITIVE CULTURES!”

Actually, I think “culture” is giving too much credit to animalistic behavior.

Something similar just happened at Lowes. What’s the big deal?
I was using a Lowes $50.00 gift card (or I wouldn’t be there) and was in a hurry so cut in front of some guy and some others smaller than me, and the cashier rang up my Rockwell oscillating power tool: $149.00.
On their web site it was shown as $99.00 so I started stripping blister packs off their display hooks and tossing them in the air, began beating my chest and yelling as loud as I could, and the next thing you know everyone was whaling on one another ...
Finally the cashier sold it to me for the web site price, and I helped myself to cash in the drawer, gave her one more smack in the forehead and left.
