"Police did not know if the planned ‘Bash Mob’ was connected to a similar incident in Hollywood Tuesday evening. "

So “flash mob” isn’t good enough anymore?

Taser Guns would be highly effective in disbanding them and then when they are immobilized, arrest them and leave them in jail for awhile...

How ironic. Now they’re using social media to “organize” the breakdown of society and the return to lawlessness. Portraying it as some new social trend and giving it a catchy name like “bash mob” doesn’t change the fact that America is now experiencing what every society since Rome has when it falls apart — a return to chaos where the mob simply takes what it wants and the police either lack the will or means to stop it.

Concertina wire strung between two fast-moving HMMWVs is an effective crowd control measure, producing few fatalities while achieving psychological dominance.

Nah, I’m thinking a good acid sprayer on a few mob crowds and that BS will stop. Its not time to show any fear but it is time to forget the PC crap. The end law of the land is use of force and it always has been; discussions will not work with mentally disturbed low IQ lemmings.

You could try non-destructive responses. I always thought setting loose a few skunks into such a mob would be a sufficient deterrent.

With the types of people who show up for something like this, I think its the skunk that would run away in horror at the smell and filth.

They know where it’s going to take place.
Set up many cameras and record everything.
Seal the area.
Arrest them all.
Go through the camera evidence and charge them appropriately.

Ben Jr. commented that I am now living in “the future” for my generation.

To which I replied, “Yes. And it is every bit as dystopic as I feared it would be.”

Conspicuous by its absence is the mention of the racial make up of these bash/flash mobs.

If they were white, mostly white, or even partly white that would be duly noted.

If I am wrong, anyone feel free to correct me.

Deputize a crack team of rifle-totin Korean store owners from LA....put 'em on the roofs sportin' their white headbands....and pay a bounty for each flash-mobber breaking windows and stealing electronics below on the street.

Problem solved.

A few things for people who are victimized by thugs to remember -

1. If there are no police around to protect you from a thug, there are no police around to protect a thug from YOU.

2. Revolvers won't leave a lot of brass with fingerprints laying around on the ground.

3. Don't call the police on yourself.

Bear spray would be an effective, nonlethal weapon. And it is available at the Big 5 in the LB area stores.

It’s racist to expect them to follow the law or to charge them for crimes more civilized folk would be charged with.

Advertising “bash mobs” is an eventual opportunity for vigilantism to occur. Removing a few from the gene pool would make the rest think a bit more.

In the July 9 incident in Long Beach, KCAL9′s Suraya Fadel said there were a few minor injuries, several businesses sustained property damage and there was one arrest and several citations.

This is what "progressives" and "black leaders" would call "a peaceful demonstration."

It would have been even more peaceful if they had burned some cars and hospitalized some white folks.

Don’t know that tasers would be effective on a fast-moving, wide-ranging mob bent on theft and vandalism.

I’m a L & O guy. More like this:

Police & deputies confront and attempt to contain the mob, order them to cease and disperse. Non-compliance and/or continued lawlessness results in swift arrest of mob members. Active resistance to officer custody brings physical enforcement by LEOs suct as pepper sprays, tear gas and to include lethal force if necessary.

Variable factors are size if lawless mob VS number of LEOs, proximity to civilians, time of day, location, etc. If LEOs greatly outnumbered, they call for all support and defend themselves as may be necessary while striving to protect the safety and property of civilians.

Any ‘solution’ where the bash mob is allowed to pillage and plunder at will is no solution at all and will only encourage continued lawless aggression.
