'Bash mobs' sweep through Southern California
LA Times ^ | 7-19-13 | Ari Bloomekatz

Posted on 07/19/2013 7:30:53 PM PDT by dynachrome

Organized "bash mob" crime rampages of roving groups attacking innocent people and businesses have been striking cities around the United States. Law enforcement agencies in Southern California have reported few similar problems -- until now.

In the last several days, there have been several reports of such group crime waves in South L.A., Hollywood, San Bernardino and Victorville. Long Beach police are bracing for another one Friday.

These so-called bash mobs of "flash mob" crime waves are organized through social media and have been a problem in Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington. In April, 28 Chicago youths were arrested on suspicion of attacking pedestrians along the city's famed Magnificent Mile. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation in May enacting stiffer penalties for people who text or use social media to organize mob attacks.

Long Beach police warned in a statement that participants could face severe penalties.

"The mere participation in such an event can result in felony charges including conspiracy, and are punishable by imprisonment in the state prison," according to the statement.

Police said they feared bash mob organizers planned to hit Long Beach at 2 p.m.

“Stay out of the ‘hood. “

With cell phones, smart phones, and a leader or two, these “roving bands of yoot” are moving considerably out of “the hood”.

And today 0bama asked if a black person might shoot a person who was following them. Rhetorically.

Uh huh.

And any white victim who doesn't lay back and enjoy his beatdown -- any white victim with a concealed carry license who engages in legitimate self defense -- will be severely punished and mocked in the national media.

The entire msm will have blood on their hands, along with the usual race baitors. No one should assume that this time around people are just going to stand by and take it.

“..Organized “bash mob” crime rampages of roving groups attacking innocent people and businesses have been striking cities around the United States...”

It is these sorts of antisocial behaviors which keep racism alive. Yes, people in certain neighborhoods do fear the “hoodies.” But is it racism or just a general fear of hooliganism being called racism.

Don’t need grape shot, just shoot one or two and the rest will be home watching tv and doing dope before the cops would have a chance to reload.

This is in California, where they need to release 10,000 inmates by the end of the year. So far they've identified only 1800. I am sure the mobs are askeered of going to jails that don't have room for them.

No not overkill, but they get heavy. Especially if you're packing around extras.

A gem of a statement made by poster Pax Romana at the Times website:

“Behavior of a single parent Sub-Culture raised on anti-white animosity and envy. Triggered by their racist hatred and a righteous indignation instilled and encouraged by a Leftist Hollywood and Public School Victimist Propaganda. Empowered by Liberals and their Entitlement Mentality. Often Ignored and Protected by the National News Media, Political Correctness and a corrupt DOJ. Forgiven by an endless list of Affirmative Excuses and Lowered Expectations. Glorified beyond recognition by a fawning media on TV, on the Movie screen, and Gansta Rap.

This is the chaotic new social dis-order, void of personal safety, common decency, and civilized behavior that the multi-cultists have forced upon us, and until America wakes up out of its blind obedience to Political Correctness and recognizes this behavior for what it is, and admit that it is a serious problem, violent crimes like these will only get worse....much worse.”

To: When do we get liberated?

This is mob mentality at it’s basic. Just like a pack of dogs. Even decent house dogs, but get them running with a pack of wild dogs and they will run down and kill a deer pretty quick.

And be back the following evening. When I was growing up it was (and probably still is) legal to shoot dogs running wild in a pack. Even Fido with his collar on.

Just saying.
