Skip to comments.70+ Urban Youths Brawl at Local Carnival in Southfield, Michigan (Metro Detroit)(video)
Posted on 04/30/2012 5:25:47 PM PDT by massmike
An annual carnival at Northland Mall in Southfield attracted hundreds of teens Saturday, but it quickly got out of control. More than a dozen people were arrested and police say the ugly incident may be gang related.
A carnival brawl in the middle of the day, a swarm of flashing lights from the parking lot of Northland Mall down 8 Mile and beyond. For hours, no matter where you looked, you'd likely see a group of kids getting arrested.
FOX 2 cameras were rolling when police surrounded one group of at least 8 teenaged boys. One by one, they were cuffed and loaded into a Detroit police van as parents pleaded with officers not to arrest their sons. Police say it was a planned fight involving at least seven gangs.
The carnival shut down early and Northland Mall was closed. Police say there were clusters of fights, one with as many as 70 people. Police say they knew it would happen because of posts on Facebook and Twitter.
There were heavy police patrols on carnival grounds for the rest of the night. More than a dozen people were arrested. There seems to be a fight at the carnival every year but police tell Fox 2 this year's problem was the biggest. Now officers hope the carnival packs up and leaves town for good.

Hooo boy. And it’s not even summer yet.
Must be a synonym for “melanin enriched.”
All I can figure is that they finished all of their homework and just needed to let off a little steam after those AP classes and preparing for SATS.
The Amish strike again
Obama’s sons sure have been restless lately. I don’t think anyone would have taken me up on the bet before viewing the video.
How dare those pigs pick on obammy’s kids like that.
I went to the site just to see if my suspicions were correct.

” All I can figure is that they finished all of their homework and just needed to let off a little steam after those AP classes and preparing for SATS.”
“If I had a son, he would have been at the Northland Mall in Southfield.”
On the video it says “parents begged the police not to arrest their sons”
They just bes letting off steam with they homies after auditioning for an appearance in “Hard Core Pawn”.
Nice... and these people have children.
I’ve seen this happen before.....it’s always the PICK-A-DUCK booth. The little rubber ducks are floating by and you pick one and if he has a black dot on the bottom then you win a prize. There’s always the kid who brings the black marker with him to the booth.
“Hey! Mister! My duck has a black mark on his bottom. I win!”
“Son, this is the THROW-THE-HOOP-AROUND-THE-GOLDFISH-BOWL-BOOTH, and you just killed that goldfish. That’ll be a buck.”
If Obama had 70+ sons....
Get yourselves armed, America .. summer's comin' and these savages won't stop until they're STOPPED !
its just a whole lost generation....
this is just the beginning...
people had better wise up and not live around these areas....there is no redeeming value to being a sitting duck....
What does a Country get after 50 years of unionized public education, and entitlements instead of dignity? ....Here’s your sign!
Now officers hope the carnival packs up and leaves town for good.
Sounds like officers are wanting the wrong ones to leave town for good
They need to send those worthless idiots to Afghanistan to be used for IED detection.

"If Obama had a carnival, it would look like this..."
My God, take back your cities! Control the ferals.
What sort of "urban youth" are we talking about here and why does it matter whether or not they were "urban" or "youth".
They were a little rowdy and needed to be disciplined by their parents - more than a decade ago in my estimation.

A thousand miles
Tattooed cannibals danced in files.”

I thought Black Panthers had promised to burn down Detroit - or threatened to burn it down ... something like that...
Let them kill each other and simplify the gene pool.
Were Skittles thrown?
Here is where we see the breakdown of Society, especially with the LBJ Great Society tearing apart Black Families.
Back in my day, had I been involved with something like this, my Father would have taken me to the Police Station and turned me in. The embarrassment would have rippled through my Family and the shame it would have brought upon me would have been Life changing.
Today, the kids will whine and their “Parents” (if they actually have two Parents) will whine right along with them while playing the Victim Card and / or the Race Card because it fits their agenda and Society's expectations.
When I was young my father said if any of us got in trouble and we were part of a large group, he would blame us and only us. Said we were natural leaders and if the group was up to no good, it was our job to change the direction of the group. You can imagine how he took to us doing wrong when there wasn't a large group.

Just another excuse for the Man to keep the urban youth down.
The article said “fights”, lots of different incidents of “fights”.
I wonder if these were actually 5-10 on 1 beatdowns.
"Gosh, Mom and Dad, the police must have profiled me!"
Parents as a plural noun, in this instance, probably does not mean "pairs" of parents, but many single parental units.
And also probably means, capable of being a parent, but not performing the duties of said appellation.
I doubt there were many “fathers” protesting the arrest of their sons. Most likely it was “single moms” saying “don’t arrest my baby! my baby!”
Dey jus be unlucky to be born in dis country where no ones can get a fair chance! You musta be payin mo and mo for dem, so alls can be fair!
Yep, and their kids now do this crap in front of their parents.
Speaks volumes about kids not having any culpability.
