    I don't get the reference to "uneducated" either. Education has nothing to do with it. It's parenting, it's morals, it's values. Well educated people commit horrible crimes too. Let's be honest here.

    There are also people who live in trailers who wouldn't perpetrate crap like this for anything. I'll even go out on a limb and say most people who live in trailers wouldn't do this.

    Most people who live anywhere wouldn't do this. Some people in trailers certainly would. Albeit probably not in as large of a pack due to the nature of population density.

    Mob mentality is not some disease specific to those darned niggers feral urban youths.

    What you actually had was people saying that this wasn't some massive viral outbreak of violence. The "knockout game" is vastly overplayed by the media because making things seem more scary or more exciting than they really are is literally the job description of a reporter.
    How is it vastly overplayed exactly? When mobs of people (in this case nearly 100 by all accounts) intent on causing violence swoop down on innocent victims, I think such behavior should go viral as a public health notification and benefit. I'd even suggest states send to everyone's homes tips on how to identify and avoid such groups and what to do to both notify authorities and keep themselves and their families safe. That's not overplaying anything in my view.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It was acceptable to the woman with the camera right up until she realized someone was getting beat up. Prior to that it was all a joke to her.

    Re: More than 100 teens swarm Memphis plaza, 'knocking out' shoppers

    I lived in Memphis back in the late 90s. I lived in Midtown Memphis at the time. Midtown is the melting pot of Memphis. I liked living there. You won't find a more southern feeling city than Memphis. Poplar and Highland is the eastern edge of midtown. Back when I lived there, where this happened would have been a pretty good part of town. It's sad to see Memphis going down hill to the extent it has. I don't know how to say this other than just coming out and saying it. Back when I lived there in the late 90s, the city of Memphis was about 50% black and 50% or so white. Today it's 62% black and about 30% white. So you have a lot of white flight going on. Moreover, you have a lot of middle class black flight to the suburbs as well. If the city doesn't get a handle on its crime, poverty, and schools, it's going to be another Detroit in a decade.

    That said, I don't know what the solution is. Ultimately, mobs of violent teenagers is as much of a problem with bad parenting as it is with poor policing.

    Probably not and that's even more sad. Black kids ****ing up other black kids is just so common place that nobody even thinks twice about it.

    Just to be clear. An animal isn't referred to as feral, unless it (or its origins) were once domesticated.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
