Default Re: Witnesses describe mobs, some people claim racially-charged attacks

And apparently, this is not an isolated incident. There is much, much more going on this summer that is not being reported on at all by the mainstream media (or if it is, it's quickly glanced over).

June 23rd, Chicago.

June 26th, Peoria

Tonight, around 11 p.m., a group of at least 60-70 African American youth marched down one of the side streets (W. Thrush) to the 4 lane main drag (Sheridan). They were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill alll the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. Cars on the main drag had to slam on their brakes to either avoid the youth blocking not only all four lanes, but a large section of the side street as well. fights were breaking out among them. They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help.

4th of July weekend, Riverwest Milwakee

Quote:
Perry was among several who were injured by a mob they said beat and robbed them and threw full beer bottles while making racial taunts. The injured people were white; the attackers were African-American, witnesses said.

Store video of the BP station at E. North Ave. and N. Humboldt Blvd. shows the business being ransacked. A clerk at BP confirmed to the Journal Sentinel that he was busy waiting on customers when one or two people held the door open to let others rush in and steal snacks and candy.

Not far away, 20 to 25 friends from Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood had gathered at the park shortly before midnight to watch some fireworks set off by a neighbor. In interviews with 11 people who said they were attacked or witnessed the attack, a larger group of youths appeared in another section of the park around midnight and were joined by more young people running up the park's stairs.

Normally, I'd chalk incidents like this (if they were not this frequent) as just mob mentality. Apparently it's getting more out of hand than anyone wants to admit. Couple that with what happened in London yesterday (reports are it was mostly blacks rioting), and it has to be more than just coincidence.
