Flash Mob Steals From Baltimore 7-Eleven; Beats Store Manager Who Tries To Stop Them
http://baltimore.cbslocal.com ^ | May 24, 2102 | Derek Valcourt

Posted on 05/24/2012 3:32:56 PM PDT by BO Stinkss

BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Another mob of juveniles causes problems in downtown Baltimore. This time, it happens inside a 7-Eleven where dozens of kids came for free Slurpees but ended up stealing much more.

Derek Valcourt explains the entire incident is caught on video.

But city police and managers at the 7-Eleven have refused to let WJZ see that video. But there are plenty of people in that busy area of town who saw it all unfold. A nationwide 7-Eleven free Slurpee giveaway brought 35 to 40 kids into the Light Street store around 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

“It was a lot of kids and they were out of control,” Kesha Chester, who was at the store at the time, said.

While some kids lined up for the free Slurpee, witnesses saw other kids raiding the candy shelves.

“They went in, they started going everywhere in the store, grabbing things and then they just run out. And I knew that they didn’t buy it because they just run out,” Kendra Mellerson said. “They ran that way and they ran that way. And the guy was trying to come out and stop them but they couldn’t because there was so many.”

It's Maryland, but in some other jurisdictions when they start beating on the Manager, he can use force to stop them.

But it is racist to not open stores in such areas. Not a rational economic decision based on such experiences - just racist.

The video must be exceptionally violent and brutal...

No doubt the store manager had his teeth kicked in, after being repeatedly stomped, kicked and beaten on the floor.

"Police declined to be interviewed for this story" because it's top secret.

The manager of this 7-11 is a dunce. If you are going to hold any kind of event in *Baltimore*, for heavens’ sake, you have to plan ahead.

The first thing would be to have a bunch of extra security people there, and then offer the free Slurpees, or whatever, in the parking lot, not in the store proper. Keep the store closed for the duration of the event.

The way they set up the event was as dumb as going into the hyenas pen at the zoo and offering them doggie treats(*) by hand, and expecting them to behave politely.

(*) Yes, I know hyenas aren’t dogs.

I don’t even know why we even NEED Baltimore! Like Detroit, whatever economic rationale for its existence obviously faded long ago. I say relocate the people and raze the city and make it a tobacco plantation or a duck-hunting ground, for example....

He's probably a racist too, who intentionally triggered this event.

They should find out what hospital he's in and charge him with a hate crime and being a dunce.

The tragedy of the radicalization of the juvenile youth, and young adults will cost our nation greatly.

Soon the censorhip and political correctness will be turned off. People will be forced to defend their homes, families and businesses from anarchist , wilding youth. When forty healthy 17 year old anarchists start breaking down neighborhood citizen’s door’s , they will be shot, unfortunately by the dozens.

And then, what will be proven? Well it will prove that Homeland Security was right, we have a bunch of “Right Wing” radicals who need to be jailed and tried by the NAACP, Al Sharpton, president Obama , all in the press, and then they just might get a fair trial after their due process rights have been completely trampled, and their right of self defence toatally destroyed by political correctness? The Obama movement and their community organizers have organized to assure this will happen with great certainty.

Homeland Security under Janet Napoliotano made sure to have the “Right Wing” radical position paper esconced into Homeland Security’s operation manuals. These operation guidelines were tested with the Hutaree Nine, all who were released after months of bogus posturing by federal prosecutors.Now Janet Napolitano is just waiting her opportunity of a mass shooting in the near future, to descend upon ordinary citizens who use their arms to defend themselves, exacerbated by the cries of “Hate Crime!” by such leftist organizations as the NAACP, which ludicrously enough, was originally a freedom movement, now dedicated to totalitarianism and the removal of freedom from American citizens.

The set up is fairly clear, and the tinder box of radicalized youth has now been established.Obama and his nazguls await their opportunity with baited breath.

***********************************
Homeland Security Issues a Report Warning of Right Wing Radicals

April 14, 2009

Is this how people who oppose this administration are going to be characterized? This is truly scary. The department of Homeland Security has issued a report in which people on the right are being stereotyped as violent, gun-toting racists and law enforcement is being told to be on the lookout.

The nine-page document was sent to police and sheriff’s departments across the United States on April 7 under the headline, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

The following is also in the report:

It says the federal government “will be working with its state and local partners over the next several months” to gather information on “rightwing extremist activity in the United States.”

The joint federal-state activities will have “a particular emphasis” on the causes of “rightwing extremist radicalization.”

But this report goes deeper than just stereotyping the people on the right on the issues of guns and race, it also warns of people who want illegal immigration stopped and warns of people who are anti-abortion, and it warns of people who feel the federal government is growing too big.

Basically if you are on the opposite side of an issue with this president the Department of Homeland Security believes that you are a threat to radicalize. This is a frightening, there was a time when dissent was patriotic (remember Hillary?) but now dissent because it is on the right wing is dangerous and must be closely watched.

The president has distanced himself from this report but the fact is that he appointed Janet Napolitano so he owns this report. He had to have known her stance on issues such as this and he must have agreed with it or he would not have appointed her.

The left has found it’s enemy and it is not alQaeda and it is not North Korea, Iran, or Cuba, it is half of the American people.

**********************************************

Every community in America should by now have convened its own local “Committee of Safety.”

Obama and his nazguls MUST BE removed from all positions of authority.They usurp America.

Locally and national we have had no updates as to the VICTIM’S health and no news as to the Youts being held for any crime. If a you call The Orlando Sentinel they will not respond to questions.
Since April 3 there has been a complete Blackout!
I tend to think the Victim is either in the hospital or dead!

Feral black punks. Then the racist black leaders scream when grocery stores pull out of the Ghettos. This is why. Who wants to run a business preyed upon by feral black punks. Shop owners should be legally allowed to shoot on sight to defend their inventory from theft. I’m serious. It would not take many dead feral black punks to get the message across.

In totally unrelated news, large sections of Baltimore are classified as "food deserts" (red areas on the map), where there are no remaining grocery stores accessible to the members of local flash mobs. The area surrounding this particular 7-eleven is not yet a food desert, but it's only a matter of time if lawless behavior by these mobs continues.
