First, we are talking INNER CITY.
Do you believe that whites are the MAJORITY living there?
Second, MANY people are unemployed, black and white, but I BELIEVE ,when it comes to inner city "black" youth, having a higher unemployment rate..
Whats B.S. is you want ME, doing your HOMEWORK for you. There is NO spin brother. Ill take the percentages on this one.
I do believe if white teen youth get to 47% unemployment,you might see the same thing happen.
Its about the haves and the have nots.
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?

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.

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.

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.
