'Flash rob' targets Troutdale Albertsons
KGWNews Portland ^ | 6/18/12 | KGW staff

Posted on 07/17/2012 8:44:11 AM PDT by crosshairs

TROUTDALE -- A flash mob targeted a Troutdale store last weekend and investigators are trying to identify the suspects.

Investigators said as many as 40 kids entered the Albertsons store at 25691 SE Stark Street at the same time late Saturday night and started stealing things.

Raw video: Flash robbery

Security officers chased the thieves out, but no one was captured. They also left employees pretty shaken up, including one woman who was in tears after getting terrorized by the robbers.

Investigators have not said exactly how many items were taken.

"Basically it looks like they went in, just to cause chaos, which they accomplished," said Sgt. Steve Bevens with the Troutdale Police Department.

Investigators believe the suspects ranged in age from 13 to 15. They could be seen on surveillance video, roaming from aisle to aisle.

Customers said the store employees were overwhelmed and outnumbered.

"They [thieves] were bragging and laughing about how much stuff they stole and what they did in the store," one witness told KGW.

If caught, the suspects could face several charges including rioting, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.

This was one of several flash mob-style robberies being investigated in the Portland Metro area over past months.

"What they did in the store". Like flinging feces at the bystanders like they do in the zoo?

Stores should have an audio clip of a Glock-17 in rapid-fire mode ready to play over the PA system at full volume at a moment's notice.

Flash-robs would end before they began.

Yes, either that or German and Norwegian Lutherans trying to force people to take a hot dish and a jello mold.

There’s an old movie about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and my favorite scene shows a body propped up with a sign around its neck, “looter”.

We used to shoot looters. Now they are “kids” on some kind of spree. That is what happens when there is no respect for private property. Obama and his ilk believe everything belongs to everyone.

If this continues, more people will shop on line, and more local stores will just close.

Go to facebook and you will find your culprits. I bet they have a video on Youtube already.

I hope the catch some or all of them and hammer them to the maximum allowable extent of the law.

What if someone would have had a heart attack, or more serious(in the eyes of any liberal) they would have aggressively approached/assaulted a pistol packing mama and her kids and she defended herself by blowing them away.

Oh geez, just another mob of black kids committing crimes and intimidating whites.

But we can't say “black kids.” Because that would be racist.

One of these times one of these white victims is going to be armed. And then there's going to be some dead black kids.

And the MSM will be screaming 24/7 about white racism.

I have a shirt tail relative (now deceased) who was serving in Germany during WWII....he said they were in a town that had been routed, and he was following another guy around looking into buildings, etc....well, the other guy decided to steal something from a store....his commanding officer saw him, SHOT HIM on the spot, and said to Bob, “You won’t be doing that, will you?”

When will ADULT black Americans wake up to the TRUTH that the DNC is manipulating black youths to be the cannon fodder of a wave of race chaos which is aimed at ending the Republic and ultimately killing off perhaps millions for a new world agenda which uses black people every bit as heinously as slave owners in the past? ... Perhaps the democrats have been so successful with the Jackson/Sharpton/Conyers/Waters/Holder shuffle that there are no adult blacks capable of seeing what is right before their eyes. Sad really, because they’ve flushed the Republic of all of US down the racist empty drain.

I got curious (because I live far-off), and looked Troutdale up on Wiki. The population is less than 2% Black, less than 5% live "below the poverty line" (yeah, yeah I know).

From where did the mob come, and how did they get there? Huge bus? They certainly did not come from Troutdale.

This is the second such video I have seen this morning.
Both have one thing in common.
None of the mob were of European or Asian or Native American or Latino decent. All were princes and princesses of Africa.
When are the rest of us going to say.”Enough”? When they turn the rest of the nation into Detroit or Chicago or Mogadishu?

"One of these times one of these white victims is going to be armed. And then there's going to be some dead black kids."

My position:

I'm approaching 69 years of age and any attack on me could be fatal. Consequently, I will view any attack on me as attempted murder. You will know it is me when you see this headline:

"Black Youth Attack Old White Man, 15 Dead Many More Injured, Old Man Okay."

The left can be accurately described as “rapacious”.

When asked how much the producers should “give”,

the answer will always be “MORE”.

Those retailers would be robbed EVERY DAY! And notice that the yutes walked right past displays of fruit and vegetables, and helped themselves to the junk food! I guess they learned nothing from Mama Obama/s;)

I hear them whining about the food deserts that exist in the cities. The connections don’t occur to them. It is the fault of the evil businesses that want to make a profit.

Google or Bing = “Obamaphones”

Obama’s has them all “hooked-up” and ready to go, and YOU AND I paid for it with our tax money.

It’s gonna be just the start. TENS OF THOUSANDS (the exact total of the program could well be over a million, most with overseas non-USA carriers according to a FOX report I saw) of phones are being passed out under the program. Barry can call, text, IM and email thru these phones to mobilize whatever “response” he and his campaign need for his re-election.

These are just “warm-ups”.

Like flinging feces at the bystanders like they do in the zoo?

You should see the video of the FLASH ROB of WALMART. (yes, boys and girls, this is not an isolated event.)

Flash mob causes havoc at Walmart

In the video, you can see the 'teens' jumping up and down like monkeys, throwing food at each other, and stealing 'shiny' things.

Why certain teens act like monkeys is a question I don't have an answer for. I think it has to do with breeding and husbandry. And maybe rap music.

There is not a big enough racist who could do this much damage to the image of a group.

Congratulations, you have given ample ammunition to those who want only to protect themselves by excluding your people.

If withHolder’s people keep this up I can envision they will get their own water coolers, sections on the bus, restricted seating at the lunch counter.

I won’t wait for Sharpton, Jackson, Obama, Holder or any of the usual race pimps to speak up. They are too busy making excuses for this behavior and printing up extra race cards to defend the indefensible.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2907508/posts?page=54

I would advise Sgt. Bevens that the CHAOS was to cover for the individual who started the ‘chain’ of ‘texts’, because he needed a new pair of tennis shoes.

There is the ‘core group’ who plan on theft(or some other crime), while the rest of the mob are just ‘helpful idiots’.

This ‘model’ is used worldwide, and is very popular. For instance, it worked out well for robbing the Egyptian Museum. It works out well for Muslims while they raped a female non-Muslim reporter. It’s working out well for politicians.

YOU CAN SEE TOO. Right through the BS we are fed. Anarchy is the method, and right now, blacks are the tool.

Did you hear that my American friends?

YOU ARE BEING USED, because of your 'looks', to help Non-Americans take over our nation. YOU ARE JUST A TOOL, and will be DISCARDED when the job is done. The more of you that die in the process, the better. It just saves them money on bullets.
