    "A "flash mob" believed to have been organized on the Internet robbed a Maryland convenience store in less than a minute, police said Tuesday, and now authorities are using the same tool to identify participants in the crime."

    By tool do they mean the Internet? Because that's an awkward lead. At least they didn't harm anyone. I do love how "flash mob" has now been co-opted.

    white people flash mobs - pretend to be mimes... sing a song... do a dance

    black people flash mobs - robbery, assault...

    One should be able to protect their property from these savages with firepower.

    You guys are racist. This is clearly the fault of white people. But I am sure racist Anthony will rant about this on the show. Of course maybe if black people in general didn't act like complete pieces of shit all the time... oh shit I broke character.

    I can't wait to see how the enablers try to defend or downplay this.

    Honestly, what can a store clerk do? Threatening them with a shotgun might scare some of them out of the store...but again, you're assuming 1, 2, or 20 of these 30 kids aren't carrying guns or knives themselves that will get pointed right back at you. And you get a cop or two showing up, how would he go about corralling them? Is it even worth it? Maybe Motorhead can give some input on it if he sees the thread. I just don't know how you would go about stopping this from the clerk and the cop's POV, with very limited resources.

    The clerk/owner could rig the doors to lock remotely from the counter...that might slow some of them down and allow more than a couple cops to converge on the store. Of course, who's to say you won't get your ass beaten...all over chips and drank. It's a toughie.

    Lets look at the vid closely. Maybe we can find something that all these perps have in common to help identify them.

    Look at them walking upright and wearing clothing. Creepy. If you didn't know better you'd almost think they were humans.

    So how long before Internet regulations to prevent this sort of thing? How long after that before any sort of talk about any public meeting online is illegal?
