    Flash mobs can be harmless and hilarious.

    This is just flat out douchebaggery.

    So dumb. Every one that's on film is no further away from juvi than a school year book.

    So they didn't actually steal anything, or go in with the intent to rob the place? Just wilfully damaged stock.

    I was going to say, 300 people and they only managed to nick 1500 dollars worth of stuff, that's a pretty pitiful effort.
     
  10. That is about as much as 300 people could carry out of a Wal Mart :ninja:

    Unbridled and reckless thuggery. I'm both glad and uneasy that I'm not a part of the upcoming generation. They're gonna breed some truly twisted mofos.

    Don't care. As long as people say BS like that I'll continue to call them out on it. They need to know that them saying that kind of stuff is nonsense and should be stopped.
     
  15. Can you give a convincing argument as to why? I'm serious.

    I just don't remember seeing past generations in America doing these sort of activities, that's all. Doesn't bode well in my estimation.

    Generational? well.....
    how many 50 year olds did you see in that video?

    For that matter,

    Racial? well...
    how many Japanese did you see in that video?

    Discount, Deny, Dis-believe.... It doesn't really matter what we would like to think, The video shows the truth of the situation.

    Arguing isn't going to change the facts.
     

  18. No check, and definitely No mate.

    It is apparent that you two do not have children.

    Parental intervention and involvement only go so far.

    Peer pressure factors into it more then you would think.

    You know what? It doesn't matter. I'm willing to bet every single one of those people know that going in and doing what they did is not only illegal, but also unethical. You can say what you want about the generation that raised yours and mine, but the bottom line is that those people knew what they were doing.

    Pointing fingers and blaming someone else still pointing fingers and blaming some one else.

    You're right, it doesn't matter.
