    Teens Riot In Manhattan Businesses

    It's like a flash mob gone bad. Security footage from a Manhattan Dunkin' Donuts shows a group of youths climbing on counters, throwing chairs and throwing tables in a violent attack on workers.

    It happened at the Dunkin' Donuts on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village. A $2,000 hot chocolate machine was reportedly destroyed in the attack.

    Similar attacks have targeted other stores in the neighborhood in the previous weeks.

    The video shows one of the teens throwing a chair and then running up to grab a donut.

    A few of the attackers also grabbed drinks out of a refrigerator near the door, and they all quickly ran from the store.

    Some businesses and even residents recently have complained about violence in the area. Most of the business owners didn't want to give their names for fear of retribution.

    One store owner told Fox 5's Lisa Evers that some kids did something similar at his business about a week earlier than the incident at Dunkin' Donuts.

    He said, "It's not safe around her."

    Parent fail. Pure and simple. The police cannot create good citizens. Society certainly isn't trying very hard either.
     
  2. Wow. My daughter and son-in-law just moved to Manhattan a couple of weeks ago. They looked at apartments in Greenwich Village, but they were WAAAY overpriced. I'm glad they found a place on the upper West Side. (I think).

    It'll get worse, especially in particular areas.

    I was going to say anywhere that the sense of entitlement outweighs the sense of decency...

    Oh wait, it's the same thing.

    Top cop Garry McCarthy has plan to go after Michigan Ave. ‘flash mob’ rings.
    "...the uptick in juvenile arrests doesn’t tell the whole story. Many store owners are reluctant to press charges for fear that a surge in arrests could scare away law-abiding customers. Whether it’s shoplifting, aggressive panhandling or vagrancy, there are certain retailers who just don’t want to get involved for any number of reasons. That’s very frustrating,”

    I am not LE and my question is what would happen if I smacked these kids when they started that garbage? Could I clam self defense as a patron?
