The NYPD urged shoppers Friday afternoon to “please avoid the area” surrounding the Queens Center shopping mall in Elmhurst, New York following a largescale riot and fight that involved over 1,000 urban youths gathering at the mall.
In yet the latest pre-planned riot that seems to have been spread via social media, over 1,000 teens stormed the mall causing chaos and attacking other shoppers.

Businesses prepping for coming Black Friday shoppers were forced to close their doors, after being terrorized by these thugs.

- Don’t act like a Zombie! Make sure you stay off their phone, remove the headphones, and pay attention. Criminals look for easy victims.
- Teach your Children. Take the time to show them examples of what they should be looking for while out in public. See who can find the most exits at the store, and who can spot the quickest way to those exit points from various spots in the store. These are the kinds of things that will prepare them to face threats and disasters.
- Be aware of their surroundings, and to start developing mental maps of places you visit. This will during any disaster including natural disasters, fires, or any other situation where you might have to make a quick exit.
- Lean to use a Firearm!!!
