  • The first hot weekend brings violent mobs to Chicago streets as media turn a blind eye

    “Wilding” is the term for mobs of violent young people taking over upscale neighborhoods and wreaking havoc, looting, mugging and attacking innocent people just for the fun of it. A “good” neighborhood is no guarantee of safety anymore in Chicago. The breakdown of civil order, in other words, is well underway in the Windy City. Bit by bit, civilization is slipping away in Chicago. But if you want to know how bad things have gotten there, the major media outlets are no help. The last thing they want is for people to stay away from The Mag Mile – the...

    Police in New Jersey arrested five teens after an estimated 1,000 unaccompanied juveniles descended on Cherry Hill Mall following the Christmas holiday. A witness sent video to Action News that sees the horde of teens ambling about near the food court. Residents and mall-goers in the area warned people to avoid the shopping center after spotting the massive group of minors, prompting widespread attention on the incident — particularly on social media.
  • The ‘Central Park Five’: Still Guilty

    ---SNIP--- For starters, no one has ever disputed that the Harlem thugs had been in Central Park that fateful evening for the sole purpose of assaulting and mugging innocents (one of whom had been bludgeoned with a pipe). As is the wont of cowards, “the Five” set upon only those who they outnumbered, those who were weaker and more vulnerable. This they confessed from the moment they were in police custody. To the present day, they have never retracted this confession. Yet “the Five” also proceeded immediately to implicate themselves in the assault on Meili. On multiple occasions, while alone...
  • Trump continues to blast Central Park Five long after they were exonerated:..

    ...'They admitted they were guilty' Donald Trump continues to hammer away at the Central Park Five even though they have long been exonerated for the rape of a jogger in 1989. The Republican presidential candidate told CNN in a statement this week that "they admitted they were guilty. The police doing the original investigation say they were guilty. The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous. And the woman, so badly injured, will never be the same." The five teens spent several years in jail, but the charges were dropped in 2002 after...
  • 3 Suspects in Brooklyn Rape Are in Custody (NYT)

    Three teenagers suspected of taking part in a brazen gang rape at a Brooklyn playground were taken into police custody on Sunday, a law enforcement official said. The attack on Thursday night, in which the police said five young men with a gun separated a father from his 18-year-old daughter and then took turns raping the woman, set off waves of anger and uncertainty in the Brownsville neighborhood where it happened. Elected officials also questioned whether the police notified the public quickly enough after the attack, a suggestion the Police Department strongly contested on Sunday night. Two teenagers, a 14-year-old...

    Texas is larger than most countries in the United Nations, some not much bigger than the postage stamps they print for collectors, but each with a vote that can cancel ours out. Texas is about to a vote against the U.N.’s sovereignty-destroying Agenda 21, so named because it claims to be setting a “sustainable growth” agenda for the 21st century. Agenda 21 is in fact a global power grab similar to climate-change treaties like the Kyoto Protocol. It uses the imaginary threat of unsustainable growth which allegedly threatens to plunder the planet’s finite resources, like climate change allegedly threatens planetary...

    It is a crime spree and viral internet sensation that started in Chicago last May and is spreading across the country like wildfire. […] It's called “Put ’Em In A Coffin,” and it was created by a rap musician named VonMar, who has posted dozens of videos of himself doing it. He's even been arrested for it. Just what is “Put ’Em In A Coffin”? James McHugh, 28, lives in the Fifth Ward, and he can tell you exactly what it is, because it happened to him this past weekend. “A group of young idiots, just out for laughs, to...

    “Over the weekend, we had at least five or six examples of large groups of kids coming off the CTA, that we escorted around basically like NATO protesters, which is the tactic that we used last year that was so effective,” McCarthy said. Police formed cordon lines around the groups of teens and followed them around to prevent them from causing trouble.

    Ten years ago, the media in Louisville, Ky., could have gotten away with reporting this weekend’s events this way: A group of 10 “roving teens got into a fight with two girls … then it happened a few more times over two hours.” But now, less than 24 hours after a mob of 30 black people roamed through the city’s downtown Saturday, beating, laughing, destroying property, sending three seriously hurt people to the hospital and walking away laughing, outraged citizens in Louisville are asking two questions: Why is black mob violence such a problem? And when is local media going...

    TAMPA — An atmosphere of family fun at the Florida State Fair was trampled Friday night by a crowd of young people carrying out an annual practice known as wilding, sheriff’s investigators said. By the end of the night, the fair closed early and one teenager among the 99 people ejected for disorderly conduct was killed — hit by a sport utility vehicle as he tried to cross Interstate 4. Twelve people were arrested on charges including trespassing and fighting. Now, authorities are considering possible changes in fair policy, including limiting the hours when young people are admitted free to...

    Tampa Bay Timess ^ | ebruary 10, 2014 | Jessica Vander Velde
    TAMPA — The first Friday of every Florida State Fair brings droves of Hillsborough teens, who get the day off from school and free admission. And each year, shortly after sunset, dozens of unsupervised minors start stampeding through the midway, the Sheriff's Office says. They're fighting each other, robbing other patrons, stealing food and battering deputies. The phenomenon is so common, deputies even have a term for it: They call it "wilding." Authorities said the lawlessness is mostly confined to the first Friday. But they've never publicly shared details until Monday — after several media outlets, including the Tampa Bay...

    Police are looking for as many as six or seven Somali men after two joggers were randomly attacked in Fridley. Authorities said two joggers were the victims of what are being labeled as random attacks on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and 3:50 p.m. The joggers, both men, were on a path near East River Road and 37th Avenue NE when the attacks took place. Police said one man suffered a bloody nose in the attack and the other has a sore throat. Authorities said these attacks were not robbery attempts and that the suspects randomly approached them and assaulted them....

    Rescuer: 'He couldn't even defend himself because it was so many kids' When the people of Jacksonville learned a mob of at least 15 black people had attacked an elderly white man, kicking him and beating him with a big stick, many were not surprised. There had been at least three other reports of black mob violence in that area in the two days surrounding the Friday attack. And just two weeks before that, four black people were arrested in connection with the murder of a 13-month old child during a robbery in that area. But this latest example of...

    “Mischievous”? REALLY? Well, I suppose that when cowardice, helplessness, and abdication of one’s obligation to defend oneself against violent assault have been inculcated deeply enough into a population, the only resort they have left is to euphemism and minimization of their shameful degradation. Teen Mob Action Takes Over Chicago’s Gold Coast (CBS) — The warmest day of the year so far brings hundreds of mischievous teens to Michigan Avenue. Police are calling it ‘mob action’. CBS 2 is learning about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding a slew...

    Chicago police made 28 arrests Saturday night after teenage “mob action” and so-called “wilding” disturbances rocked parts of the city. The Chicago Sun-Times reported a “melee” erupted along the famous Magnificent Mile shopping district and that a group of women were attacked on a city transit bus. CBS Chicago WBBM-TV reported many innocent tourists and shoppers were caught in the middle of the chaos of teenagers purposely bumping into each other and starting fights among themselves. “You had a group of teens, close to maybe 500. They assaulted a Chicago police officer that was on a mounted on a horse...

    ST. LOUIS, MO. (KMOX) — There’s an alert out about recent assaults on bike riders in south St. Louis. Trailnet.org, an organization that promotes hiking and biking, is cautioning riders to be on the alert for roving bands of teenagers who swarm and attack riders. Trailnet says the latest attack was last Thursday (8/25) afternoon near Missouri Botanical Garden where a group of 10 to 15 African-American teens charged and attacked a cyclist. “They weren’t really interested in robbing me. It just seemed like they wanted to beat me up,” says assault victim Cheech Ramirez. “They weren’t interested in letting...
