Mall Melee Involving 100 Rowdy Teens What's the matter with kids today? Updated 11:09 AM EST, Mon, Dec 28, 2009

More than 100 rambunctious teens turned the Westfield Trumbull into a giant mosh pit Saturday night, according to police.

Two teens were ultimately arrested for returning to the after being thrown out by mall security for allegedly bothering customers.

The fight erupted at a bus stop outside the shopping center, said police, and ultimately grew to include more than 100 young people.

Trumbull police say they had to call in Bridgeport and state police officers for backup and were forced to use a stun gun on a 17-year-old who allegedly charged at and knocked down an officer.

I avoid most malls on Friday and Saturday nights. They can be very scary places with roaming groups of teens.

Where does it say the kids were Amish?

I bet it didn’t have anything to do with the Amish. The ones I’ve met when I was in Lancaster PA were pretty nice.

The media's PC code system no longer functions.

If they don't mention the perp’s race, there is a 99.999% chance that the individual or group is black. Most people can see through this “code” now.

Welcome to this part of FR, its a bit of a house joke.

As in:

Wait until the Amish start drive-by shootings! (Oh, wait a minute...never mind.)

Ahhhh... good old “Trumbull Shopping Park”.
I would guarantee that the “Amish” that caused this disturbance were African-Americans from Bridgeport.

“Trumbull Shopping Park” used to be a nice suburban mall and all of the African-American crowd would go to the downtown mall called “Lafayette Park”.

Not any more.
The bus from Bridgeport pulls right up in the front. The Bridgeport city line is just outside of the mall entrance.

Westfield Trumbull Shopping Park is now over-run with African-American ghetto trash and is an unsafe place to shop as this episode underlines. The parking lot is particularly unsafe.

I used to live in the area, and it is because of these Amish that I no longer shop there.

We teach them they came from monkeys, they have no responsibility to their creator, and at the end of their life there is nothing. Are we now surprised they act like apes?

Here is what we have to look forward to:

Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

The Amish gotta be watched. They are prime suspects in every act of terrorism that occurs. It’s the religion of peace, ya know.

It’s all a big front.

And that Quaker Oats guy?

When id doesn’t say what background the perps come from, we say Amish because so often it someone VERY different from the Amish.

One of the first malls in the Area was Lafayette Plaza. It only now exists on postcards.

Lafayette Plaza

It was a nice and very modern mall when it first opened. A housing project opened nearby and soon the mall was deserted. The parking garage was the scene of many a violent robbery, rape, shooting and the local papers always provided a very good description of the car.

In a last ditch effort, the mall owners beefed up security, but this proved to be too little, too late. A couple of shootings and it was over.

So now this same crowd has discovered the Trumbull mall and it too has become a very unpleasant place to shop due to the crowds of ill-mannered, pushy ghetto scum.

Not only do you need to put up with them inside the mall, but you must hope that they do not shoot, rape, or rob you in the parking lot.

As you can see by simply reading this article, they are out of control.

Trumbull Shopping Park (Westfield) used to be a VERY nice and upscale place to shop.

Not any more.

Of course he is!
That's a long-running joke here on FR... whenvever it is a Muslim or African-American and the MSM (press) does not want to come out and say it, they refuse to provide a description of the perps.

When a crime has been committed, for example, they will provide a comprehensive description of the car - including its color and year... but never describe the actual perpetrator.

We all know that these were gangs of black thugs.
The press will not report that.

For the liberals who long for the US to be more like France and other countries this is a great step forward.

We now have our own gangs of marauding “YOOTS” to terrorize citizens, trash private property and challenge law enforcement officers. Just like France.

The only thing missing are ranks upon ranks of damaged, overturned and burning automobiles. But give the “YOOTS” time to learn and we’ll soon have that too.

Not to mention being obvious venues for SJS practitioners. I have not been in a mall in years.

Not necessarily. It is often thrown in because it is NEVER the Amish, it is the usual suspects. That often means the black yutes that were involved in this little brouhaha.

Believe me, if they had been Amish, it would have been in the headline and mentioned eight times in the article. When there is no mention whatsoever, certain assumptions can safely be made.

No, WE don’t teach them they came from monkeys, etc......Their parents don’t teach them anything, try to control them or see they are set on the straight and narrow.

The Scriptures you posted are certainly taken out of context.

The Scriptures say that it is the parent’s responsibility to train up their children. That is one reason why God created the family.

Plus, if you notice Romans 1:19: God has been made known to all people. So, these Amish are without personal excuse.

Not sure who originally built it, later it became "Hi-Ho Mall" after a local developer bought it in an effort to 'revitalize' downtown Bridgeport. The developer was named "D'addario" and his company dumptrucks all had the slogan "Hi-Ho D'addario" - as in the "Farmer in the Dell" song.


There is an entire history of Lafayette Plaza (Hi-Ho Center) on the Dead Malls site.

Lafayette Plaza

This article blames the Westfield Mall (Trumbull Shopping Park) for stealing its clientele... but what happened there is known to all locals. The downtown first crumbled when large numbers of blacks moved into Bridgeport - this mall became a war zone, so nobody in their right mind would go there to shop without an armed escort.

The Trumbull Mall was 'safe' at the time.

Those days are over.

"... More than 100 rambunctious teens turned the Westfield Trumbull into a giant mosh pit"

A 'mosh pit', which invokes images of 90's-era white kids from Seattle's alternative rock scene tussling about in front of a stage where musicians with squealing guitars wail through amplified speakers, right?

Now here's the arrested perps in what police now call a 'gang-related riot':

I do believe that the unattributed author of this story stretched journalistic license way out of bounds to use the term 'mosh pit' in this case. Too bad we'll never ever know who that journalist was since they didn't sign their name to this report.
