600 Teens Violently Mob Movie Theater in Florida & 400 Take Part in Knockout Game in New York

On Christmas Night over 600 kids and teenagers swarmed a movie theater in Jacksonville, Florida violently attacking moviegoers, an off duty police officer, and each other in one of the largest flash mobs to date.

Somewhere around 600 crazed teens swarmed the theater attacking people and stealing everything in sight. 62 police officers were dispatched to the theater, where they had to fire pepper spray into the crowd to get them to disperse.

400 Teens Storm Brooklyn Mall

At the same time, another flash mob swarmed a mall in  Brooklyn, New York. In this case, over 400 teens stormed a Brooklyn mall violently attacking security guards, shoppers and each other. Local reports say that while part of the flash mob was violently raiding stores around the mall, another large group of teens strategically targeted innocent shoppers as part of the now infamous knockout game.

Both Attack planned on Social Media

According to police, the teens in both areas used social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to plan the violent attacks and mass looting events. Even while events unfolded, teens were still taking to the internet to brag about beating up innocent people and looting stores.

We’ve written many times in the past about how to protect yourself from these violent flash mob attacks, and one of the things we’ve always advocated is using social media as a way to protect yourself. The people who take part in these events, as witnessed in both the Brooklyn and Jacksonville cases, often plan these types of things on social media.

Before heading out to any large mall or area where large amounts of people congregate, take a couple of minutes to do some reconnaissance on social media. Jump on to sites like Twitter and type in the name of your destination; if you see a large amount of people talking about that destination it may be a sign of an impending dangerous event.

          In WWII, the Germans tried to rush American soldiers when they heard the en bloc clip from the M1 hitting the ground (it made a bell-like sound). The Americans quickly learned to carry an empty clip, throw it onto a hard surface, then kill the Kraut as he rushed them. Who wants to be the one to find out the hard way that, no, he’s not out of ammuinition?

      these youth are children of members of the community they are attacking.. They should hardly be described as the enemy. they may be “crying out for help” so to speak? This us vs them mentality is probably a huge part of the problem

      • wait4it
        December 27, 2013 at 9:44 pm

        no. they may live in the community, but they broke the social pact. when you act like a mob to intentionally inflict suffering and pain you are a danger to society.

        your excuse making for their bad behavior is also to blame. you create hypotheicals to rationalize away their actions. two things are certain, it was premeditated and innocent people were robbed and beaten. it is a small comfort to them and the people who have been murdered by this game.

        if you so desire to love them and treat their “pain”, i suggest you go out and do so. i however will call them what they are, criminals. violent and dangerous criminals at that.

        • William

            the “pact” is the LAWS we live under when we choose (or not, regardless) to remain in our countries. No one can claim to be lawfully outside this “pact”. What pact LOL: LAW of the LAND! Act like a wild animal be treated as one. Do unto others it’s all a pretty easy equation bringing us back to society’s ills does NOT excuse behavior. Right or wrong behavior is a choice. When we choose, life in our communities actually does judge us & will certainly deal out consequences. You can blame who you like, that is your behavior it does not make you right.

            By living in any society, you agree to follow the norms , mores, and laws that describe proper behavior in that society. These teens stopped being members of the community when they decided to terrorize it and become a subversive and violent counter culture (read a book on sociology before you make comments about it please). These teens are pathetic , they don’t want to fight they, they aren’t making a statement, they just want to hurt people, but they’re too cowardly to take up boxing, wrestling, jiu jitsu, or any other combat sport or martial art. Both they and their parents should be treated like terrorist, because that’s what they are.

Could we all have some of your protective magic?

          • December 28, 2013 at 9:05 am

            Do you really feel that running away from 400-600 younger people is that easy, or even always possible? I would guess a good number of them are faster and in better shape than most anyone of the older age group. It’s also pretty hard to get out of a group that large that is swarming around your location.

            Should make automatic bean bag guns for such an occasion. Personally I would have used self defense grabbed a blunt bat like object and started swinging for the fences. Or pulled a hand gun and started popping a few punks who deserve to be shot. Come at me with 600 teenagers after the first 15 hit the ground and the next clip gets loaded im sure order will be restored and they would think twice before commiting such crimes.

            This kind of violence changes my mind on gun laws, everyone should be allowed to register a weapon and carry it. Personally, I don`t think it`s fair that I might end up in a situation where a bunch of thugs swarmed me. I would want the right to start shooting back in self defense. The bigger question now is, which of these kids will get charged and will it even fit the crime. I bet the reason theres a rise in crime like this is that the criminals get away with it most of the time and only get probation or a few months jail sentence when they do get caught.

            Just a response to BA who thinks these young people AND their parents should be treated as terrorists. I agree this act qualifies as terrorist, but don’t lump all parents in. My son is a heroin addict who has broken into homes for a fix. I don’t condone or defend him, and he was not raised in a home that promoted or tolerated anything of the sort! After his last arrest, I called the arresting officer to try to ensure the charges would not be reduced once again. This traumatizes the victims, and actually puts him in jeopardy of being shot. He got 30 days in jail again, for theft, criminal trespassing, etc. So please realize that some parents fight this violent behavior, thru much sorrow, yet with all our heart!

            “The word ‘normal’ keeps changing as you become educated and learn new things. If you found out that all criminals were made by society, you wouldn’t put them in jail. You’d correct that area of society that makes criminals. What’s ‘criminal’? Well, in the old days, they said that a criminal was a person that took something out of your possession without your permission. Do you know what the new definition of a criminal is? One who’s caught. Think about that. That’s closer, isn’t it? So, if you do criminal things and you’re never caught, you’re never a criminal. So, the whole idea of criminal is bullshit because all politicians are criminals. All military people kill. They’re not called murderers. They’re called defenders of the country. So, when we stole the land from the Indians, we were murderers. We killed a lot of Indians. But we weren’t considered murderers because the nation says that’s what you do.” – Jacque Fresco

            My impatience would have me refer to the kids as animals but I don’t want to live by my impatience. I do believe we are all responsible for our actions. These kids have been consumed by negativity through their life journey. The life we lead is very competitive and is the root to the behavior. Many have a difficult time in this competitive society and people are held down by it by different degrees. We are just living is a very sad time were people are being consumed by the competitive negativity. I wish to view these kids as more than animals because they are more than animals. If I react to their actions with negativity I just help to build the environment that builds them. In saying that, they are still responsible for their action and they should pay accordingly.

They say not many people returned to court for a second go. maybe thats what we need a physical sore deterant. Nobody is locked up for years at the states expense and society is brought back into line with its laws.

        • Great job, the blame game has been around for way too long. It’s not coddling they need, it’s time in prison, if that doesn’t straighten their act up then put them in the chair we don’t need to babysit them on our dime behind bars. Parents need to watch their children more, and be involved until they move out. If they are under your roof you should be responsible.

            Seriously, you can’t be that naive to think that prison is going to straighten these people out.

            We, as a culture, have created these people. They are a symptom of a system “we” continually protect and push off onto other cultures.

            As someone else said, they have broken the social pact, and the social pact is NOT the laws any given culture has IMO. The pact is a set of rules we as humans should enforce regardless: Do no harm, do not take what doesn’t belong to you unless it is given willingly, etc.

            There’s no easy solution for this behavior. Some actions cannot be taken back. If we treat these people with violence (shooting, prison, etc), yet do nothing to alleviate the source then we’ll continue to get the same symptoms

We are too soft, and prison?? where else do they get ac, food, bed, cable, and a gym? Things that we have to pay for in the real world. Put them to work for the state without pay. Once they have to work they wont want to go back.

          I could not agree more with you…they were aware of what they doing fully and liked it…that is a problem as they do not have the right to harm others and seem to think they do. It is time to stop tolerating this and it starts at home. These kids were raised by people and their parents are fully accountable in this also.

          okay so instead of everyone getting online to complain about who is right and who is wrong. how about some people use their obvious lack of anything to do and figure out why the hell this whole “event” started what was its purpose. and why those spots. nothing is jus random chances are it started with a few and built from there. but verbally attacking each other on a blog is stupid debates are onething but damn people are taking this way out of scope. My Opinion innocent people were hurt. Guilty should be punished. and who started this whole thing should also be accountable for all the crimes due to the nature of how the “event” started

          I agree with mickey. I have a VERY sharp folding knife on me at all times and while I use it for all kinds of things which are not harmful to anyone (mostly as a package/letter opener), you can guarran-fricken-tee if I see a big group or mob coming at me and my wife with intent to harm, I will pull it out and use it to defend us both. I can’t run for anything thanks to a bad knee but I will aim to maim anyone attacking us. While some people I know may call it a redneck mentality or not worth the risk, if we cant run then I’ll make damn sure I take as many of them with me as I can before I’m overrun. Some of you may say “but you’re attacking kids” and in a sense you’re right but to me they stopped being innocent kids when they planned a mass attack on people just trying to spend time with their families or friends. When they plan to attack others in that way they are no longer innocent children, they are terrorists and should be dealt with as such.

If this BS ever happened here. I would use both to defend me and my family. I will not allow animals to harm my family or myself. I have watched this “game” going on in the rest of the country and can not believe that the law is going so easy on these animals! I can’t believe that those who live in these areas are not in the streets screaming to the government and the law to stop this! Instead they all try to hide it from the rest of the country. Just like they try to hide that these ” youths” are all black. To those that want to jail these animals. In what jail do you want to put them? We in the USA have more people in jail and prison than any other country in the world! To all the bleeding hearts now would be a good time to stop reading this. Because you won’t like what I have to say next. The whole country should be armed! If we started shooting and killing them when they start this crap it will soon stop! The threat of death would cause these animals to stop and think before they pulled this crap. If they could end up hurt or killed instead of their victims being hurt or killed. It would change the rules of their game. Where they hurt and kill other people, to them being killed. The game would not be as attractive to them. It would end then! Why would they stop other wise? They get away with it every time! To you nut jobs who think these animals are crying out for help! Grow the hell up! They are doing this because they have been lied to all their life’s by Jackson and other race baiters who tell them that it’s all the white peoples fault their living the way they are! Instead of telling them that if they go to school and WORK hard they better themselfs! Funny think is I have never seen a story where this as happened in a state where open carry is allowed.

          I’m surprised no one got killed, meaning, why some of these kids didn’t get killed. It amazes me how docile people are when confronted with abuse.

          The only solutions I can see are extreme fascism with more and more police fostering an ever darker “fear your neighbor” mentality or utter chaos. Either way, until the reasons behind this happening are addressed the attacks will only get more sophisticated.

They dress neatly in clothes that fit…and I’d better not see anyone’s jeans sagging down. They do their homework and if their grades dip, they are punished. Of the four, the oldest girl is a college student and the oldest boy is a 1LT in the Army. So perhaps you should rethink your hateful, ignorant stereotypes.

            Thank you! As a fourteen year old guy, i felt this whole group was dead set that all teenagers were bad. It’s horrible what happened to these people and those resposponible should find their way into prison, but before you all decide to continue to throw around stereotypes, keep in mind this generation isn’t completely screwed.

            My grandpa whipped me as a kid, and even though i sometimes deserved it, that still doesn’t mean we should be advocating it. I was whipped when i deserve it, sure, and it sure as hell taught me manners, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that it was to easy for it to get out of hand and sometimes a simple scolding would’ve sufficed. There’s a fine line between discipline and abuse, so keep that in mind before you continue.

I say , get you a carry and conceal permit and face the enemy head on. Looking down a gun barrel usually slows stupidity down,if not hot lead will. Come on….check the social media before you go to the grocery store? I thought that this was the land of the free and the home of the brave. In my opinion,this is what happens when you take away the rights of the parents to discipline your children.

        December 28, 2013 at 1:57 pm

        As angry as this makes me and the human nature of me wants to take out as many of these motherf###ers as I can, we also have to realize that no one is innately “evil” or bad, this type of behavior is taught. There is no taking back what they did and what I’m saying isn’t in anyway justifying what they did. However, there needs to be an education and awareness process that is applied, not only in these black teens but in all communities. I mean think about it, sure, there’s a lot of equality in our society today relative to 40 years ago. In fact, more equality is given to african americans through, for example, affirmative action, but is giving these people a “break” really contributing to their progress as a race? And is it making them feel anymore equal? I don’t think so, but that’s my opinion. The african american community began building this type of behavior years ago and it has evolved into what it is today as a result of racial inequality. Like I said, before people start calling me a “liberal” or “democrat” or some other man-made title designed to create division, these kids need to be shown what their actions are doing to people and they need a black role-model to step into their community and encourage and motivate them to quit being dregs of society, stop feeling sorry for themselves, and start contributing and thriving in society. Look at the jews for example, they were persecuted for thousands of years but look at them now! They’re a thriving and successful culture (a majority). You can go ahead and say that “that’s because they are god’s chosen people” but that just affirms my point that mentality dictates one’s ambition. How are blacks any different? It’s a mentality and a lack of drive and ambition. There needs to be a peaceful revolution of consciousness!

Those are the facts period! And I would be the first to make sure they all go to jail!

            The answer is rehabilitation, not killing them. They are still kids and can still be taught to be better people.

            People that advocate for killing someone as a punishment are ether too Lazy to try something else first or blood thirsty enough to just want to see the corpses, Or purely motivated by revenge, which isn’t an objective emotion.

            Frankly it is rather sickening that one would advocate for the execution of 600 kids for something that can be corrected with some time and effort

        not sure what planet “onelove” is living on. The innocent people who were at the mall purely to shop and go about their day ARE THE VICTIMS. not the other way around! when you premeditate an attack like this, you are a criminal and deserve to be treated like one. Even if that means being shot in self defense. Notice this happened in two places that don’t allow open carry. Your “crying out for help” bullshit is the type of mentality that allows kids to think this type of behavior is ok and that they won’t receive and consequences for it. this “onelove” post is so assbackwards it makes me sick.

Teens in this country have better things to do. Trust me on that. The government, on the other hand, spends our tax dollars creating false scenarios that will be used to take away freedoms and basic rights. They go so low as to hire people to go to peaceful protests and start riots and be violent while pretending to be part of the group of protesters. Teens went online to plan mass beatings……and nobody questions this ridiculous story? Americans need to recognize and become aware of what is REALLY going on. They are being played like fiddles.

      While self protection mode might kick in and make me try to put distance between the mob and myself I think the bigger issue here is why should I, an innocent, law abiding citizen be the one to be a position where I have to flee. The law should protect the innocent citizen and deal harshly with these hoodlums. If we keep backing down or backing away then we do nothing to deter these kinds of attacks. Find as many of these teens as possible and give them sentences that might have a chance of making future participants think twice.

      Being a minority and being a parent. I do not look at these youths as being in need of help. Saying they are crying out for help by committing criminal acts is an excuse to justify what they are doing. They are not taught simple home training, I blame the parents also. Some parents for this generations youth are too occupied with other things to raise their kids and they just have them and let them run lose in the streets. As a result, they grow up to be f*ck ups crowding the prison and detention centers. Its not a shame to say but its the truth with all races but more so the black communities. To start with fixing this problem begin in the home, if they still do not listen make it a law that when they wanna join gangs an terrorize the street, enroll them in the military and ship them off to another country to fight a real war and see how they like that.

        Why is it the minute someone mentions a gun, someone else comes along and acts like the only thing anyone ever does is go around shooting people the minute they get a gun. Wake UP! A gun is to protect yourself in cases like this. If you personally want to try to stop 600 people and question as to why they are doing this, go ahead, feel free. But if you are already there and they start in on you, do you honestly expect people to stand there and allow them to beat the heck out of us? The minute they hit a complete stranger they stop being “children” and start being criminals. Everyone has a right to protect themselves from criminals. Plain and simple.

        Yes, there is an underlying reason for this happening. More often than not it is because of people like you condoning their behavior, defending their actions, and making excuses for them. There are children who have worse problems than these kids and they would never act out in such a manor. Besides the reasons I gave for an underlying reason, there is also the fact that children, and adults, like this have very little discipline in their lives. Yes, if they attack someone, especially in large groups like this, the victim should shoot at their poorly bred, undisciplined, psychopathic asses.

Media has brainwashed these children into thinking they will all be rock starts, actors, millionaires if they try hard enough, but after a while they see that its just lie and now we are seeing the results.

          What scares me, someone feels its ok shoot someone for attacking them. LOL, you think shooting one these people is going help the situation or do think its just going spark more and more. Look what happened in London.

            So Kitten you think everyone there should have not defended their ground and take a beating because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. I have read everything written here and I just want to say as a single father of a 13 year old boy that I would blow a hole in someone at any age if they were going to hurt me or my son. Just so you know that if you were standing next to me in a mall and 600 kids were attacking people and looting and you couldn’t run. You too would be glad I shot some kid about to hit you with a ball bat in the head. Think about it 600 people. What if you were at church and 600 people surrounded the church and set on fire. Wouldn’t you try to protect yourself and your family at any cost. If you had 600 idiot kids beating everyone around you wouldn’t you defend yourself and your family and blow a hole in the first one that reached for you four year old next to you. I would try to do anything to survive the attack and yes I would shoot for a leg or to not kill but I would shoot. I bet after one shot id fired it would be over and they would all run. Yes some may have a gun also and it could escalate but I like many here have said I would fire with no hesitation to protect my family, myself, my country, and even you. You can not reason with a mob of 600. You shoot an attacker and you point at the next and see if he or she has changed their mind.

        the way you think presupposes their is a reason. not all crimes that are committed have a reason. secondly, does a reason justify your actions? if so, then there can be no culpability for ANY bad behavior. i hope you see this is a dangerous line of rationalization.

          unfortunatelly parents have no way of instilling rulles up on children because kids are too protected by government those days. they know they are invincible since the day they became socially conscious, and in my case it was when I was 5 and really badly bit up a child from my neighbourhood only brcause it insulted my fathers name…needless to say I had my bottom red from belt (from my father’s belt) because I overreacted and could kill that girl, who was purposly winding me up. needless to say I never did it again, and I learn to protect my father’s name with words instead. so I learned not to go and bit people for reason or no reason! as simple. if I would be 5 year old today my dad would be shewed why his 5 ussr old child has psyhotic behaviour, if he would hit me with the belt he probably would be in prison because I would tell my teacher, and I would be no afraid to bit up another child to prove my point…must love todays child protection system. if I would grow up in the society of today…i would not be a very plesant person…instead I was brought up in fear, respecting my elders and I tried my best so I have clean cryminal record and I am a gardener because I am short tempered with idiots like william ;-)

        I’ve worked as a counselor with incarcerated youth and yes they have issues that put them in these situations but they always knew what they did was wrong. I was never one of those touchy-feely counselors trying to pin the blame on upbringing because there are plenty of kids who have it worse and don’t do bad things. It is about accountability and our system has to put that back on them not on their upbringing or living situation.

        Far too often these kids are told that they are the way they are because you “well-intentioned” people tell them that it isn’t their fault but a variety of excuses. Stop giving them excuses and hold them accountable because you do them no favors, it isn’t just for disadvantaged youth but most youth in our society are given excuses or behavior instead of being held accountable for their actions.

          I believe that more of those violent children were from middle and wealthy class families than many want to admit. We are always telling each child that he/she is the future of America. Telling them they can be anything that they want to be. It’s not true. Sorry to burst everyone’s balloon, but the real leaders of this country will come from Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. For these criminals its time for parental fines, community services, permanent crime records, more boot camps, and for all over 18 years old mental health issues and possible prison. Today children are growing up with a lot of hate in their lives while business and our city, state, and federal leaders ignore they exists. They expect our schools to solve all their social problems and recreational fun. It’s time to shelf the war and spying mentality away and work with our children. Hands on! Maybe it’s still not too late to be more proactive with youth.

      @Ajent and Kelly

      He said faux news not fox news. Faux news is the bs your bs government feeds you on EVERY news station in the NSA (Nazi States of America) because its all about brainwashing and control of the mass population because if you were actually given the truth, you’d be educated enough to have a say, which by the way is NOT what your government wants. Think about it, if you had any real say in how your country is run, would this have ever happened? Society and useless parents are to blame for the actions of these 1000 teens. Don’t believe me? How many of you “good parents” have bought your children video games like Grand Theft Auto, that romanticize this behavior? How many have bought them Call of Duty, which romanticizes mass killings all in the name of peace? How many parents allow their kids to watch TV shows and movies in which violent acts are not only portrayed as acts of patriotism but romanticized as “making the world a safer place”? Everyone wants to blame these kids, which isn’t wrong, but you cannot just blame the people who do this. The people who’ve allowed this to go this far are just as much to blame as these kids. That means, Hollywood is to blame for making these acts of violence romantic, as well as the parents for not monitoring the intake of violent actions in their daily media, whether it be through movies, TV, or video games, but mostly government is to blame for taking our rights as a parent to punish our children from right and wrong. Jail doesn’t scare people. The scary ass murderers who’d kill you for a thrill insidethe jail are what scare people. Threat of bodily harm is a good punishment because its in human nature to do what is necessary to not come to harm, whether it be a belt across your ass or some bubba who’s gonna shank you cuz you ain’t pretty enough for him

    I just watched one where the girl didn’t get knocked out and got him on the ground and beat the crap out of him. The boyfriend realizes what happened and kicks him in the face.There is also a 70 year old woman that hit the ground, pulled out a gun, and shot and killed the 16 year old assailant. Hopefully she will not get into any trouble for that. He got what he deserved in my opinion.

Unfortunately this is a cry for help I am not saying what they did is right but kids nowadays have no respect and I use to get my ass spanked with switches from the tree guess what I never did it again. Now I am 25 and have never been in any kind of trouble.

You can discipline them by spanking/hitting with force look at family law for your state. You are only breaking the law if you are a complete idiot and go beyond that. If you can’t teach your kid right from wrong before it comes to you beating them to death stop now and don’t have them. The government is not the problem but you are definitely the problem.

Now, concerning the violence against random, unsuspecting, innocent people. That disregard for the safety and rights of a fellow human being and the act of using numbers and fear to prey upon the weak, unprepared general population should be met with unhindered brutality. If they aren’t shot on the spot, they should be made accountable by act of physical retaliation. Maybe they just honestly don’t know what it is like to know pain… Poor kids. Let’s help them out.

    Some of you don’t understand this and want to find an explanation for it. I grew up with people like this, and I can tell you what is going on. 1) Their parents had them solely to get welfare, free housing, food, and income. Their parents didn’t care whether they lived or died; in fact, unless they could trade their pre-teen girls’ bodies for drugs, they had no use for their children.

    2) They join gangs because they have no status in their lives, and gang membership gives them that status. They have no capacity for love, mercy, or respect for others; “respect” is given only for violent behavior. The more violent they are, the more respect they get.

    3) Those who think that they can be loved or forgiven out of their animalistic behaviors are jokes to them; anyone who tries it, is used to further their own criminality.

    4) They are sociopaths. They neither need nor want education, jobs/careers, homes, or families – they only thing they seek is immediate gratification, and they neither know nor care what it costs others.

    And, finally, 5) they will continue to do these things and escalate their attacks until they are forcibly stopped, because the only thing that they understand or respect is greater force.

    It does not matter if you want to believe these things or not. You will discover that all of your hugs and concern and caring will be used by them to manipulate not only you, but the courts and any and every other bureaucracy or individual who comes into contact with them. They are feral animals, and choose to be so. And, BTW, race, origin, nor color matter – there are whites, hispanics, asians, Indians, Somalis, and American natives who are all participating in this behavior. It just depends on which part of the country you live, as to which gangs are dominant. All you can do is think defensively (code yellow) and be aware of your surroundings at all times. If at home, be prepared to defend yourself commensurate with the potential threat… because sooner or later it will be on your doorstep. You can thank those who still believe that these animals can be educated and/or loved for that.

Your “respect is earned” comment, no truer words have ben written in this entire thred! Violence is a wsy of life for these people, and I’m not including race in this factor as I am an ex gang member and guess what I’m white! As were many of my brothers in the gang ! Violence is respected and kindness is weakness returned brutality is the only thing that will stop them!!!!

By ignoring and ‘allowing’ these sociopathic terrorists to inflict their horror on others, they are encouraging you to believe that, when they go after their ‘pinpointed’ terrorists, you will be proud of and glad for them, even cheer them… just like the mouthbreathers did at Ruby Ridge and Waco.

    December 28, 2013 at 5:47 am

    The whole thing is sad.

    What a lot of people don’t realize (or choose to ignore since it’s simpler to just put a label on all of them) is that not every kid is driven by the same thing.

    Now, if you took the kids who bragged about what they did afterward, odds are good, they’re the worst of them, the ones who thrived on the chaos and “aren’t fit for society” so to speak. Rather than punish them all equally, these kids need to be made an example of specifically.

    I would not be too surprised if there were also kids there who were terrified to be there, but even more terrified to say “no” to their above-mentioned friends. The tag-along kids, if you will. I’d give them a slap on the wrist because, most likely, if you separate them from their negative influence friends, there’s a good chance there’s still a lot of hope for them.

    Of course, there are plenty of kids in between these two examples.

    Keep in mind that many of the kids were attacking each other, not just bystanders, that’s a good indicator of mob-mentality taking over, and the others posting here should not pretend to be above the influence of it. It affects different people to different degrees, but the only people who are truly ‘immune’ to it are those who have certain specific mental conditions that prevent them from ‘fitting in’ with society to begin with (ie, autism, among others).

    The teenagers are not victims, nor are they innocent, but not all of them are truly monsters either.

I’m only 24 but I would NEVER have been allowed to act like this. I was only smacked on the face one time my whole life, spanked once. You know what really shows I was raised right though? I never wanted to so something like this. Parents, I’m sorry, but one small across the face, even a little one, might stop this kind of bullshit in its tracks.

    In order to truly understand what these kids are you have to look at what it is they are doing. After all a person is defined by their actions. These flash mobs are meant to intimidate, bully, and terrorize. If these flash mob events were carried out by camo wearing red necks, they would have been labeled by the government as homegrown terrorists. And they would be correct. Inciting panic, inflicting pain, and destroying property makes anyone nothing more than just that. A terrorist.

No, we need to punish them for their actions. I don’t believe we should punish the parents, if they are truly good people with bad children, the disgrace will be punishment enough. People cannot carry guns here in Poland, but their is not this kind of violence on the streets, mainly because I think young people know the consequences of their actions, something that these teenagers in the USA are not afraid of.

    according to the US Patriot Act these teenagers and kids could be held as terrorist, which means the Federal government would have the right to hold them indefinitely, not tell them what they are being charged with, not given representation, given a short quick trial..which they would lose and executed. Keep in mind that all of these things that the federal government now has the power to do are because our government officials are too stupid and lazy to read before signing something into law, all of these things violent the Constitution and specifically the Bill or Rights. Still if one of these kids tried to attack me with this stupid shit..they’d be carried by 6.

Idk about you guys but parents need to wake up a beat their kid’s ass and stop blaming everyone else for their child’s problems. Also, people do not have any “grit” anymore. Always complaining about having to work so they sit at at home and collect a check cause they have ADHD..you people need your ass beat as well. The police are tired of raising your kids for you.

      Hitting your kid doesn’t make you a good parent. It’s a lot more complex than that.

      The problem seem to be that adults don’t know how to be PARENTS. Not that they don’t know how to hit their children. I bet you anything, the majority of the teenagers in this mob know what a spanking is.

We had a similar situation in a town I lived in…until someone suggested we focus on what the kids did right. It use to be every front page of the newspaper was about what the kids did wrong….so the people changed that to what they did right. It made a difference and the city supported more programs and activities for the kids, most were the kids ideas because someone was willing to listen to them. Society today does not support these kids…the materialistic world they live in was not their doing, it was ours and now they have to face the consequences of our greed. Why would you expect our children to do the morally right thing when they have been brought up in a society where money and power determine who you are and how important you are. These kids need your support and love…not jail or beatings. Most of them likely would have not participated individually …just got caught up in the group think mentality. Someone better listen to them….and soon.

    This is where this country shows a weakness. No matter wat happens we always make excuses for events that take place. Its no different from the attacks on 9/11 or the Boston Marathon attacks. Its a terrorist attack, just call it wat it is and stop making excuses for people especially kids. Why do you think kids are not afraid to commit a crime anymore. Its because its not wat everyone else that’s on the social media is doing. Stop worrying about what ways we need to use to protect ourselves and start thinking like adults. What would your parents or even better grandparents have done if you did something horrible like this. The blame is on the kids they have a brain they can use it when they want but everyone acts like they don’t have one when an event like this happens. STOP making excuses already and beat ur kids ass for the wrong and not sitting them down like a little baby. There not kids after the age of 13 anymore. Stop treating them like they are the upcoming future because if that’s wat everyone wants for our future good licks and may God watch over all of you.

And i am betting the vast majority of those committing this crime do NOT have two parents. In fact i bet most of them don’t even know who their father is. We don’t have a violence problem in this country we have a FAMILY problem. That said, the liberal soft hearts in this country just feed the problem. This WAS a CRIME and should be treated as such. Good luck finding the perpetrators. But i do agree that if force had been met with FORCE we would see a lot less of this behavior.

We are not allowed to call out these young men without being called racist. If they talk like a chicken, walk like a chicken, act like a chicken, they are chickens. Keep an eye on your neighborhood and if you see a chicken, CALL THE COPS! Dont worry about being scorned a racist.

    Some interesting stats for you all…in the usa “een crime is dropping, adult crime is rising

    Adults would find some pretty shocking figures on violence if they dared to look. According to Mike Males, an expert on society’s perceptions of youth, California teen felony cases have dropped 27 percent in the past five years, and teen violent crimes have dropped 2 percent. But adult crime has increased by 111 percent, Males reported in his book, Framing Youth: Ten Myths About the Next Generation.

    Less than 150 children have died in school shootings in the past five years, according to the Justice Policy Institute, a project of the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice, based in Washington and San Francisco (www.cjcj.org.). Meanwhile, 3,000 kids die each year at the hands of their parents, according to the Children’s Bureau of Southern California (www.all4kids.org.) “

    There’s no reason to pin this strictly on the fact that they’re teenagers. I’m a teenager, and I find this to be terrifying. I would defend myself and my friends/family as much as I possibly could in that circumstance, but it wouldn’t matter if they were teenagers or 30 year-olds. I will admit that my generation has so many faults, but it’s the fault of the individuals. This also means that this issue is the parents’ fault in all cases, though the kids’ environment definitely contributed to their deviant and inexcusable behavior. They should be jailed or punished, most definitely. Actions are ok until they begin to hurt innocent people. I’m 18, a college kid, and Unaffiliated(leaning towards Republicanism), by the by, just in case someone would like to pin the blame for my opinions on my upbringing and wonderful mother who’s been doing her best for the past 2 years since my father passed. The reason I specify is because people seem to like blaming political parties, but it’s an individual’s choice to take an ideal too far.

    Hmm…for the racist comments on here…seems the “whites” commit more crime per capita than the afro americans…do your research before you stick your foot in your mouth….” The first assumption [by law enforcement] is that minorities commit the majority of crimes, and that therefore it is a sensible use of police resources to focus on the behavior of those individuals. This attitude was epitomized by Carl Williams, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police until his dismissal in March 1999, who stated in defense of racial profiling that ³mostly minorities² traffic in marijuana and cocaine. Superintendent Williams¹ assumption, shared by many, is flatly incorrect with respect to those crimes most commonly investigated through racial profiling‹drug crimes. Blacks commit drug offenses at a rate proportional to their percentage of the United States population: Black Americans represent approximately 12 to 13 percent of the U.S. population, and according to the most recent federal statistics, 13 percent of all drug users. And for the past 20 years, drug use rates among black youths has been consistently lower per capita than drug use rates among white youth. Do some research…all this racism and stereotyping was based on a lot of assumptions…the hate in the comments of this article….are what grow violence!

    This is some mental ****. To be VERY honest, 90% of the comments above are EXACTLY what I’m thinking. But here’s one thing I would like people to consider; would a .50 round be loud enough to get them to calm the **** down (Desert Eagle is a pistol, so I think that is legal under a CC liscense) since they would realise that people are going to shoot at them? Or better yet, have a militia (Excersise your rights!) on call at all times, ready to act as crowd control? I won’t specify how, that mode is up to you.

    The USA is collapsing. Don’t deny it. You know it. 5-10 years tops. Then S*** hits the fan. These people will loot until there is nothing, and you can imagine the rest. Being in Canada, I can’t fully understand the magnitude of this. But I can understand it well enough. And these punks aren’t going to come to Canada, f***king no-one will. We may have a pissy military, but we also have one of the most guarded borders in the world, contrary to popular belief. Not physically, but… Ah, you do you’re own research. We have hunters, we have preppers, and the military can track anyone who crosses the border down, same goes for the USA, don’t get me wrong. But when it does happen, the military will be domestically deployed, and the borders heavily enforced, to keep Americans in America and not Canada. If you want to leave before the chaos, do it now. But we warned you won’t have your AR-15s. And if you still think it’ll be easy; know our police forces carry military equipment. I’ve seen it first hand.
    Enough of me ranting though.

    Yes, they are youths but they raided two separate locations and violently attacked people while looting! What is the problem with defending yourself with a firearm? These are obviously NOT innocent youths.

    True, you can’t kill all 600 by yourself BUT after the first shot is fired watch how fast the crowd thins. It’s all fun and games till its life and death you’re dealing with.

If you have any sense at all stand your ground and beat the living shit out of just one and I mean beat him within an inch if his life and if the parents have something to say beat them to; obviously the parents aren’t worth a shit either and they should be punished for not monitoring their kids.

    All I see is black people being stupid u never see that shit with a bunch of white people. They don’t want to have the world think of them in that way but they keep doing the things that make the world keep putting them down. An it’s our fault. There is good black an any color. I have friends that are black that would never do that shit. That’s the reason they are my friends. U keep acting stupid an we will always think that. An that’snot fair to the ones tthat just want to be cool an do ssomething with their lives. Instead of living off the government what can u give me for free. Someone should be responsible for my kids feed watch an pay me to bring them up while u sleep in an do nothingall day teach those kids they have to work for everything they get instead of living off the ones that do. We dondon’t owe u anything an I’m tired of it. Get off your lazy asses. An pay aattention to your kids instead of letting then do what ever they want to do. No consequences no rules regulations. An thinking we should have to work so u can sit on ur ass an collect ur government checks an food that I worked so u could get. That’s why I go into the getto an see some of the most run down dirty litter everywhere. U didn’t Ern any of it. Just Givin to u so u don’t respect it. It’s crazy when u see that they don’t even care about their stuff their house how do u care about others. If u don’t take pride in your own stuff u shit on ours. But how could u. U didn’t earn any of it. So I understand. I respect the stuff I earn more then the stuff giving to me. An I earn everything I get. I work for it. An u should to. I know where my kids are an they pay for the things that they do wrong. The people I’m taking about could care less about anything an everyone seems to owe them everything.

    I’m surprised nobody has pointed out yet that in each of these cases, it’s in black neighborhoods, with tons of black kids….you’d never see that shit in my area. Hell no.

      Actually the theatre in jax is in an area that isn’t all black. It is a working class community… a lot of mill families and military fams living off base…it just happens to not be very far from downtown where yes there are a lot of lower income communities. But u arent far off the mark.

    This is just all the more reason good people should have concealed carry.

    These numbers sound FALSE! I’m having a hard time believing that this many teens got together in one location at the same time just to do this. Sounds exaggerated and inflammatory.

    Ya all talk, smack, this that, not one does a thing…. You are weak and waiting, how does that feel? “I’ll take care of my……” No, you won’t . The network is out there. Know the signs, know your allies. Wake up, lil Susie .. Ask a subtle question….. The enemy always smiles and says remain calm…. Ghosts know the cemetery best….

    This sounds like a precursor to a new “law” banning large groups in public places. There was something like that in the U.K a few years ago. The Police were quite complacent about enforcing it because it was primarily used to stop and search black people, who were understandably upset that the police had the government’s blessing to allow stereotypes to do their thinking for them.

    When these punks see one of their buddies head get turned into a canoe, that will most likely deter them, or at least give them pause enough to help you break contact and get away. I don’t think just blowing people out of their sneakers is good, especially kids, but if they don’t respond to any other form of deterrence, and are already in frenzy, it might take something extreme to get their attention.

    wtf is a “off the grid survival” website doing recommending using social media to protect yourself from these types of attacks? Seems that using social media is about as opposite of being “off the grid” as possible.
