It is not just blacks that cant find work! I have a 21 year old middle class boy of my sister. who here in southeast MI, has not had a full time job since graduating high school. he is afraid of wasting his money on college, bso he is just going to community college for now to feel out the economy, and the world. but this guy wont steal, he has hade up to 3 job's at once, to pay for his habit's like gasoline and the newest brand of telaphone, but he know's stealing somthing get's you lawer fee's and court cost's,and maybe jail time it dont pay to be a thug unless you want the state to be your mommy and you prefer the compony, of your qwn sex then that of the other. and regardless what most black teen's say get rid of your attatude, the baggy pant's that hang to your nothing so you have to keep pulling them up and just maybe you will be at the right place at the right time ,remember your not Rockefeller just yet and black white hispanic has nothing to to with anything

First, we are talking INNER CITY.


I'm talking unemployment for the Whole country.



Do you believe that whites are the MAJORITY living there?


No or did I ever insinuate it.



Second, MANY people are unemployed, black and white, but I BELIEVE ,when it comes to inner city "black" youth, having a higher unemployment rate..


I'm talking about unemployment for the country and whites vastly outnumber blacks unemployed in the millions. Does it matter where someone is starving whether it be "inner city, farm, suburb or trailer park'? the point is that you still don't see flash mobs of white teens (or at least I haven't) doing this when their unemployment far exceeds the blacks. Point is that these so called unemployed probably weren't the 'JOB" type anyway.



Whats B.S. is you want ME, doing your HOMEWORK for you. There is NO spin brother. Ill take the percentages on this one.


It's your homework that's incomplete. You're the one accepting percentages and giving vague info.



I do believe if white teen youth get to 47% unemployment,you might see the same thing happen.




again
Its about the haves and the have nots.


No, it's a bunch of lowlife scum.



I recently read about a WHITE man robbing a bank for a dollar,so he could get state funded insurance. We are living in dangerous,tough times,wouldn't you say?


I never said Whites don't commit crimes. I'm just tired of the LAME excuse everyone uses to defend crimes that Blacks commit because they're from the "INNER CITY". So do you think it seems acceptable to everyone because they come from a ghetto or is it just accepted behavior and what's expected because of where they come from?

Stereotypes....Everyone wants to do away with them yet everyone's the 1st to use them.................Ever wonder why stereotypes existed in the 1st place?

that is bs.

these teens even looking for a job?

they can't do some church work, volunteer, keep busy?

i have a real hard time to believe they can't find some work.

might not be a corner office on wall st. but i washed dishes for years, even under age.

i made my own money when the family fell on hard times.

younger than these kids. how many of you shoveled snow or cut grass? made some good money too.

you can make connections, step up in life but not by hanging with these looters.

especially at that age and these morons don't look that young.

i've done stupid crap too in my life, like everyone but to base this abomination on socio-economic-family bs don't fly.



I lived hard too. Not justifying the INSANITY, in ANY way. Just giving a reason,thats all. Not letting my EMOTIONS get the better of me,like other posters here,who would like the "HAMMER" brought down,LOCK AND LOAD,like its a video game. The black community has MANY problems,but when it spills over into white CORPORATE owned businesses,and it doesnt deal with drugs,or black on black crime,you dont hear a peep.RIGHT? When was the last time you saw a thread on drugs in the urban community,whats wrong with the black youth? You HAVNT. You WONT. They are doing it,because they CAN. Inner city community leaders,and business have to get together,and stop it. I would rather have those entity's maybe talk about giving out jobs,to the youth of the inner citys. Maybe something positive could come out of this. THINK POSITIVE.

I was just there in Chicago, on the Mag Mile, at that Walgreens. The valet at my hotel told me to be careful walking on the Mag Mile as attacks on people was on the rise. I didn't have a problem though...probably thanks to Chicago PD putting 650 police officers on the street beat. There were police EVERYWHERE.

Amazing how you've come to that conclusion which is incredibly inaccurate, yet amusing but no that's not why. It's because of the way many people act in life, kinda like your reply, but I'll let you figure out what category of stereotype you fit in.

My whole response was about the INNER CITY YOUTHS. My response was "before" yours,but you so happily interjected "YOUR" reasoning,your opinion to mine. Please DONT. If you want to debate social issues,on INNER CITY youths,and why this is happening,we can. You do know its NOT suburban BLACK youths doing this,right?
Theres alot of unemployed people out there. Lots of people living check to check. My reasoning behind this isnt to stick up for ANY thief. Just giving a reason on why THIS may be happening.

Edit to add:
Maybe you can help,instead of rant on how sick you are of stereotyping.
" Stop paying your Taxes!!!!" is criminal,but you support that.Arnt you calling the kettle black????????????(No pun intended)

I didn't mean for you to get so offended as this wasn't my intention. When I posted your's was right above mine and I was curious about actual numbers that's all.

If you're so sensitive you may be on the wrong site.

Naw,not on the wrong site.Not sensitive either. Just dont like those with opinions,that are counter productive. Dont like being baited either.NOWHERE have you said how it can be stopped,or fixed. Just ranting,and telling the world how SICK,you are of it. How about a reasonable response,and a fix for it? The OP stated,"The Fix For "Flash Mob" Robberies". Wheres yours?

I love how the general white response is "shoot 'em, I'd kill that black bastard."Now I'm black, and I'm not condoning the actions of my brethren but when me and my mother got death threats from a couple of skin-heads murder never crossed our minds. Why is it that straight out murder is the first conclusion that most of you come to? Some of you are actually calling for murder...It seems like that's a little harsh of a punishment simply for shoplifting. And you consider yourselves to be civilized and above. Laughable.

So if a guy invests his money to open up a franchise store and then you steal his stuff - you're hitting "big corps"?

You do realize the store owner is responsible for the inventory right?

And stealing is stealing, wrong how ever you try to paint it.

The trend with black youth today is to shoplift in groups.

We've all seen the headlines:

Teen Mob Hits Walgreens On The Mag Mile



CHICAGO (CBS) — The teenage robbery mobs are at it again on North Michigan Avenue.
Some 50 young people barged into a Walgreens at Michigan and Chicago on the Magnificent Mile on Tuesday afternoon. They took bottled drinks and sandwiches off the shelves, then ran off, CBS 2′s Suzanne Le Mignot reports.
A police report says authorities were able to nab three of the thieves.
Walgreens says the store is working with police, helping investigators with video from the store security camera.
The Mag Mile earlier this year was hit by similar mobs of young thieves. Attacks on commuters and bicyclists have become violent, and police have stepped up patrols.

Suspected flash mob rips off Upper Darby Sears (with video)





UPPER DARBY — A mob of about 40 people stormed into the Sears department store on 69th Street Thursday, and in a flash stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, officials said.
Police were able to round up 15 juveniles and one adult, 19, all from West Philadelphia.

“They came in on the El train and hit Sears,” police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. “They stole sneakers, socks, watches, whatever they could get their hands on, and left.www.delcotimes.com...:3501255|met:300|cat:0|order:1


There have been plenty more examples lately in the news.
The fix is, as soon as have the employees realize this is happening a "panic" button is hit and immediately those roll up style gates, like stores in the mall have, drop down and lock in place.

any other doorway is electronically locked as well. The metal gates would also cover the windows so it wouldn't matter if the teens broke the windows, they could not get away.
As this is happening the employees run to a secure back office and lock themselves in until authorities arrive.

This would need to be practiced as a fire drill until the employees perform like a well oiled military unit. The assailants would not know what happened until it is too late.
After word spread that stores were protecting themselves this way these types of attacks would stop.

this wont work think about it what if it was your group and you read this you would deside to send a few in and round up the employies possibly becomming even more agressive before everyone came in.also if their was 50 people I think they could tear that gate right off no problem or even simpler whats to stop them from putting something under the gate so it cant close. Also I agree with one of the other posters it wont just be blacks for long everyone is felling the pinch( witch is more like a stabing pain everywhere).

To be fair, it's not right to assume they are all doing this because they are base criminals. You can sell watches, gadgets and clothes. Some may well be doing this for the cash so they can survive more comfortably. Of course, some may well be doing it for cash to buy drugs, or for some other reason. But you can't assume none are hard pressed for money.

I think the stores should incorporate a mechanism that will allow the clerks to press an "oil button" when the flash mob arrives. When the button is pressed, oil will be squirted all over the floor, so the shoplifters will slip and slide all over the place. Then, a huge door will open and an army of clowns will come out, armed with pies.
(The clowns will be wearing non-slippery shoes, so they won't slip) The clowns will launch a
"pie assault", hitting the shoplifters in the face repeatedly with pies. That would be funny.
Also, the flash mob will think twice about their misdeeds, and maybe "straighten up and fly right", as it were.

How about you just fess up to the facts. Black culture is full of this very thing.

What did society think would happen when these little punks are making rap songs called " smack my b!t$h up "

Saying it's just a youth thing is not correct. Call a spade a spade. This is an example of the black degenerates that want so badly to be "equal" that they will fight, kill, rape, rob and steal to make it so.
