Yeah, saw that too. When one of the booger eating morons who partake in this gets hurt we'll have to listen to the parent(s) whine......or worse trump down the race card.

This is ridiculous, I'm thinking i'll be limiting my downtown visits until these kids get their act together. Do they have nothing better to do?

It will take an action that will put them in their place. As long as the police, courts and prison system treat criminals as people that have rights. It will continue.

Last weekend they beefed up patrol and played classical music over a stereo. Seemed to work.
Also the GPD police chief contended this was not a flash mob but just a large group of people that gravitated toward an incident that was started by a few.

Beefed up patrols and classical music? Didn't Hitler's SS do the same thing? Not a flash mob? How did the others know to be there at this certain time? To many questions to sweep under the rug. Don;t get me wrong. I think they need to arrest anyone who cause trouble. But, to say it was not this is just wrong.

This is not a race issue..there were white childrwn involved as well. If the parents actually controlled there children and the city actually provided low cost entertainment venues for. teens in that age bracket then this type of thing would be less likely to happen

Please do not put everyone convicted of a crime into one category, its really offensive...Not all of us act like this

If you have ever been there on a weekend night there are hundreds of people there of all ages; this is what the GPD chief was emphasizing. Since I wasn't there I'll take his word at it.

Let me get this straight; you criticize the tactics used by the GPD and then in your very next post expect goverment to foot the bill for some sort of teen entertainment venue?
The only type of entertainment venue where teens wouldn't get into trouble would be Paris Island; a place where they would be exhausted to the point to be too tired to cause trouble.
