Coming to a city near you in the summer?



Police investigating mob attack in downtown St. Louis | KMOV.com St. Louis



Quote:
(KMOV.com)—The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating after 15 teens allegedly beat three people in a downtown St. Louis park Sunday evening.
Police said as many as 30 boys and girls were walking in the park near the intersection of 18th Street and Chestnut when two men, ages 62 and 53, were assaulted by 15 teen suspects.
The suspects then went after a 16-year-old boy and took his iPod.
Police said about 12 officers responded to the scene and apprehended the suspects, who were taken into custody for questioning.
“We don’t believe that their intent necessarily was to commit crimes, but then it almost appears they started feeding off each other, each one encouraging the other one and saying, ‘hey we can do this’ and they started seeing some people they felt they could take advantage of,” said Capt. Kenneth Kegel with the St. Louis Police Department.

So assault and robbery are not crimes anymore because it was not their intent ?

This is a growing trend. Mostly these 'flash mobs' consist entirely of young blacks...mostly men. And mostly the targets are whites. But hell....that isn't racism...is it?

I wonder what the evening news would look like if it were a gang of WHITES attacking blacks? I dare say that the coverage would would be unlike any we have seen in years...and we'd also have sharpton and jackson on every news outlet and talk show screaming for arrests...prosecution....and maybe even reparations.

SOme may call me a racist for saying that...but I believe that everyone who reads it will also realize that it's the plain simple TRUTH.

It is worrisome. The incident in Florida where students left classes and marched to honor Treyvon ended up with a store being vandalized. And that school Principal also said they were just upset and didn't mean to rob it.

People wonder why there's still so much prejudice against young Black males? Even other Black men fear those hood rats. Jeez.

It is racist to point out that 99% of these crimes are committed by people who look like President Obama, if he had a son.

It is NOT racist to point out skin color when a pseudo-white person kills a black teenage boy.

That is the number one rule of America.

Nice. Marginalize it fb. This is a non-issue..right ? Isolated incident, not a trend.

That would be a typical head in the sand liberal. "Nothing to see here"......
