I am really surprised at all the calling for harsh punishments, shooting, and blaming parents... I mean this is ATS right?
Punishment is just another word for not being smart enough to offer any kind of solution... so instead you dish out punishment to try and deter...
Why do you think these are happening? Hmm well I would venture to say that they are doing it cause they are HUNGRY! So why dont we offer to feed these people instead of going out and buying guns, thinking of ways to punish/torture hungry people...
I dont know what to say about the certain incidents of people starting fights in the streets etc... That is a bit out of hand...
But people just trying to get some free food cause their bellies are empty... cmon now, its not their fault that our economy is tanking, and wont ever get any better due to all the technological un-employment, shipping of jobs overseas... They obviously arent in any kind of sustainable area to produce their own means for food... Its what happens when you pack people into cities with no real resources...

There has to be a way of monitoring the known sites for this? An announcement or invite has to be sent to gather so many people, correct? I don't know if it's possible, maybe see who read the invite after the fact?
I'm grasping at straws because this scares the hell out of me. Sooner or later these punks are going to kill someone - or worse get killed by a gun carrying citizen. All hell will break loose then!
Maybe we need a 'Counter Flash Mob' group that police officers, national guardsmen and NRA members can join via the same social media and have a showdown with these criminals as they commit the crimes...fight fire with fire.

when I step aside and leave behind my programming I see that this nation is suffering right now and the people
are suffering right along with it.
Unemployment is soaring, food stamps are getting cut,people are loosing their homes,police are getting their funding cut and are laying off officers,and the magnetic field of our Earth is #ed ten different kinds of up.
This is expected.......by me at least.
I don't resist it and I am expecting it.
I will respond appropriately if, Flying Spaghetti monster forbid, it shows itself at my doorstep.
What I will not do is condemn these people.
I see a frustration with the way things are and I see ignorant masses who don't know how to vent their frustration in more positive ways. I forsee alot of dead people if this sort of thing starts rearing its ugly head in my neighborhood. But, I hope it doesn't have to come to that.
Society is falling apart my friends and it is going to get much worse than this.
This is the sort of thing people have been trying to tell you to prepare for all this time.
When people have nothing else to lose.......they lose it!!
People are losing it and it is up to you to stay clear of it as best you can until.........you CAN"T!
This WILL get MUCH worse.
YOU can count on it.
I am 5'10 225lbs of solid muscle and have trained in Martial Arts for over 25 yrs. and guess what???
I have NEVER carried a gun because I never felt like I needed to. Any threat I have ever been faced with I have dealt with the old fashioned way.
I won't leave the house without my sidearm and I reccomend you do the same.
All the ass kicking abilities in the world isn't going to save you from a flash mob.
That is of course unless your name is ............Chuck Norris!
Where are you when we need you Mr. Norris?
Where are you????edit on 20-8-2011 by Screwed because: (no reason given)

Yeah, a big problem with modern liberalism is that they reach racism.
It is a thinly veiled opinion of liberals that working class whites are all racists, so it justifies their bigoted attitude towards working class whites. Too many people who went to college have an irrational need to look down upon those who didn't. They are professionals, and we are not, even though they often they got nothing from college. It seems to stem from perceived injustices from high school.
So racism is taught in school, the full history of slavery and oppression is hidden.
