    Default Violent Teenage Mob Attacks Innocent Bystanders

    Shocking footage shows violent teen mob attacking workers at Tennessee grocery parking lot

    Do you believe this is a racially motivated hate crime? How should the police have responded to this unprovoked altercation involving an estimated 100-125 people? Do you think the Rev. Jesse Jackson will show up to decry this black-on-white violence?

    If one of the employees who was beaten had been armed, would they have been justified in using a firearm in self-defense?

    You were so vocal in the other thread, I'm surprised you have nothing to offer on this issue. You'd make a great reporter for some biased left-wing news agency.

    Well, this is nothing new. The silence of most people here on such a politically incorrect issue is also entirely predictable.

    Meanwhile I am reading about how slavery has been practiced in Sub Saharan Africa since time immemorial...

    It's horrible.

    It could be racially motivated, but I think hate crime is a stupid term and concept. If I recall from earlier the security guard was the only intervener who wasn't attacked and he was black so that could go to show they were acting in a discriminatory fashion unless they had some bizarre respect for his uhhh... authority I guess.

    How should the police have responded to this unprovoked altercation involving an estimated 100-125 people?
    Tear gas. It's a violent mob that needs to be dispersed.

    If one of the employees who were beaten had been armed, would they have been justified in using a firearm in self-defense?
    If it was used while there was an imminent threat of severe bodily harm or death then ofc.

    Sad, but true. It just highlights the rabid prejudices that are deeply ingrained in their thinking.

    This is just another sign that political correctness is winning.

    I'm actually having to write a response to the Hunger Games today (you know, why it's been a success) and i'm planning on focusing on our fascination with children being victims of and/or being involved in violence against their will.

    I was going to use Lord of the Flies and child soldiers in Sudan as examples outside the text, but might add this article as well, now.

    That's interesting because you didn't express the same sentiment toward the police officers in the other thread. They were immediately deemed racists.

    That won't do much for apprehending suspects. Even so, when police in riot gear fired tear gas in St. Louis, they were highly criticized and accused of being over-militarized.

    How does one determine while they are being beaten that the threat level is severe enough to cause bodily harm or death, thus warranting the use of a firearm? I guarantee you if someone (who is white) had shot one of these thugs, there would be an outrage over an unarmed black teenager being "murdered in cold blood."
