Black mob violence hits Nordstroms
WND.com ^ | June 22, 2012 | Colin Flaherty

Posted on 06/22/2012 8:17:10 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Black mob violence has taken on a new note in Portland, Ore. It’s not the unsuspecting passersby or the corner convenience store that’s the target here.

It’s Nordstroms.

Just weeks ago, a group of 10-15 hoodie-wearing blacks allegedly stole clothing and raced out of the store. Their actions were captured on video.

So far, the evidence makes it looks like just one more of the hundreds of episodes of racial lawlessness that have taken place in more than 60 cities over the last three years.

But on a local forum, the reaction gave the situation a truly unique flavor:

“As an employee of a Portland area Nordstroms I have to wonder why you think that we care?” said Jason Handleman. “Things like this make work interesting and I hold no ill-will toward anyone in this group. Our security personnel spend more time concerned with employees than clientele, and honestly most employees, at my store, would not help them if they were in an altercation.”

A Nordstroms manager did not respond to a request for comment.

But other Portland commenters joined in the forum. From an anonymous participant, “Rich white high school students wait, and grow up to flash mob our economy and legally manipulate our Congress with unregulated lobbying. They are taught by their rich white parents that they are helping grow the economy through deregulation and small government.

“Funny, the Oregonian does not report on the rich old white guys who flash mob and are hijacking our economy and schools. It’s well reported in many respected and less corporate newspapers: Guardian, BBC, Aljazeera, Le Monde, and Democracy Now.”

Nordstrom is located in the Lloyd Center mall, the site of two violent episodes over the last two years.

I’ve decided it’s time for white flash mobs to invade black establishments.

Wait...................they don’t have any.

Not to be gross or anything, but start shooting the hoodie wearing little bastards and all this crap will stop. All you have to do is shoot one and the rest will scatter, cowards all.

Sorry if my frustration is showing, but this crap happens all to often and nothing ever happens.

It might take 10 or 15 minutes if it came to that.

Fatal funnels and whatnot.

Let’s hope and pray we don’t have to go there.

With a name like Jason Handleman, I’d say his protected minority status is “white upper-middle-class spoiled brat” who majored in political science and is clerking at Nordstroms because he’s too unprepared for any job above menial.

Stupid on more than one level. This wasn’t an “altercation.”

Nordstroms IS big on trying extremely hard to please the customer. OK, fine for them. But I’d draw the line at shoplifting.

I hear you, but most malls ban weapons, and as private property, they are allowed to do so. I am not allowed to carry in most malls in Oregon, even though I have an Oregon CHL. Also, unless one of the punks pulled a weapon and stopped to approach and threaten you, you would most certainly go to prison for using any deadly force against them.

An OWS wannabe. His future is not at all bright ... the hoodie vermin will not give a hoot in hell that he bows to the racist crap. They will slaughter him where he stands when they’re sent to do so.

Ha! Portland, Oregon? No sympathies at all. They flat out deserve what they get. You go hoodie wearers. Steal everything you can from those gullible artsy-fartsy socialist dweebs and burn the rest! That’s what they want so that is what they should get. F’em.

Jason Handleman will care when the next flash mob decides they want to take his iPhone or his Vespa as well as his employer’s property. Or maybe when one of his new buddies decides to break his jaw just for fun, as brave flash mobsters are wont to do. And, of course, when his employer decides that the cost of doing business in that location is too high, he may also care then.

Portland as one of the whitest cities in the nation is a target rich environment for flash mobbing. Detroit must be going through flash mob frustration. No crackers or chain stores to flash mob.

Lloyd Center is an area I will not go to ...and I wouldn’t have said that 20 years ago.

the class warfare is thick. Thanks Obama. The only incentive you encourage is hate and stealing.

Jason Handleman sounds like the type of guy who would stand around doing nothing, in fear, while his girl friend or sister was being raped by a group of black guys. A real gem of a person—his parents must be very proud of him.

Since this is a relative minor crime I would recommend a light sentence for these perps. I propose that all sentences for crimes be expressed in miles - which is the number of the mile marker along the Aleutian Island chain where the criminal is dropped off by helicopter and told to walk/swim home.

For this minor offense I would drop these perps off at the 25 mile marker.

SIDE NOTE: The Aleutian islands extend for 12,000 miles, so they can accommodate the more serious crimes as well. Cost to the taxpayer - one round trip helicopter flight.

Flash mobs can be insiders, too, I suspect.

But I do agree, they shouldn't have a job.

Ironically, I don't care either. It's Nordstrom's problem. (shrug) A mob of thugs tries to rob my store, they have a good chance of meeting Mr. Shotgun. And I ain't even Korean. The scum can rob those who fail to, or are unwilling to, protect themselves, and ultimately they will gravitate to those who fail to protect themselves. And away from righteous, GSR-smelling psychopaths like me. It's all good.

Also, unless one of the punks pulled a weapon and stopped to approach and threaten you, you would most certainly go to prison for using any deadly force against them. Not necessarily. Most laws only require you to have "reasonable fear" for your life or major injury in order for deadly force to be justified. They don't stipulate the perp has to be armed. I'd say a pack of feral animals charging and threatening violence to your person is grounds to open fire......as being severely outnumbered definitely adds weight to your argument you were reasonably in fear for your life.

Jason doesn't make his meaning very clear. Is he saying that the security personnel give the employees a hard time but don't care if the customers are stealing things? The part about the altercation is unclear...is he saying the employees wouldn't help the security guards in an altercation with customers, or that the guards wouldn't help the employees in an altercation?

The white people of Portland need to ignore these incidents and just feel guilty about being white. Do they realize that before the Civil War, free black people were not allowed to settle in Oregon? What have they personally done to atone for that?

Nordstroms IS big on trying extremely hard to please the customer.

Years ago I bought a blouse on clearance there. It frayed at a button hole after the first washing, so I returned it. They sent it to a seamstress who repaired it and called me to pick it up when it was ready. If I liked a certain robe or other item, they'd take note of it and call me when it went on sale or clearance. We moved far from any Nordstrom store, but I recollect Nordstrom customer service as exemplary.

Um, that’s why these things don’t happen in Texas except in small convenience stores and gas stations. In Texas, it would be a free fire zone.

Does anyone remember the ‘wilding’ incident in New York City a few years ago where a group of black youths were randomly attacking white people in Central Park.

One woman was raped and beaten so badly that she nearly died.

You might think that our first black President would take note of these increasing mob attacks on people and property and use the bully pulpit to heal our racial divide. That was what he promised I thought.

Not true. I know a few who do. And a Hispanic person who does.

All of them are FAR to the Constitutional right of even most Freepers. There would be a lot of dead bangers if they tried this garbage in their businesses...

How many times have we seen here that a member tells us how prepared he is? How he/she is ready for the onslaught? Yet most members don't live in big inner city's area where most of the mayhem occurs. They are not likely headed to small towns and rural areas because they know those people will simply shoot them.

Also, being ready for the hoards is a defensive tactic, one doesn't win ball games or wars playing defense all the time and there is a race war going on, in part because of the current occupant of the white hut.

I’ve done shopping at this store and I do not live in Oregon. One thing great about Oregon is NO SALES TAX so if you want to shop at Nordstrom and happen to be there...GO. The only place left to buy wide shoes if you need them. Great service, wonderful products, employees who usually go out of their way for customers. This one employee is most likely a former employee.
If you shop at Nordstrom you can usually count on sales persons who are there for years and will look out for you as long as you keep in contact with them. This Jason? guy seems only to be out for himself and will not last long, especially if he used his correct name for the interview.

“Is he saying that the security personnel give the employees a hard time but don’t care if the customers are stealing things?”

Statistically, most retail store loss is due to employee theft rather than customore shoplifting. So, yeah, the security types would be scrutinizing them harder. Besides, they’re probably forbidden to interfere with a shoplifter due to liability. It’s not Just, but it is legally and fiscally expedient.

Why don’t you just jump in and show us the way. I think you used to be a cop so you just might be able to get away with it; the rest of us, I don’t think so. I live in a very isolated area; these animals ever show up on my property (not likely)there wont be any witnesses and I have lots of places to hide the bodies. Bears, coyotes and buzzards got to eat to.
