Teens Riot In Manhattan Businesses

It's like a flash mob gone bad. Security footage from a Manhattan Dunkin' Donuts shows a group of youths climbing on counters, throwing chairs and throwing tables in a violent attack on workers.

It happened at the Dunkin' Donuts on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village. A $2,000 hot chocolate machine was reportedly destroyed in the attack.

Similar attacks have targeted other stores in the neighborhood in the previous weeks.

The video shows one of the teens throwing a chair and then running up to grab a donut.

A few of the attackers also grabbed drinks out of a refrigerator near the door, and they all quickly ran from the store.

Some businesses and even residents recently have complained about violence in the area. Most of the business owners didn't want to give their names for fear of retribution.

One store owner told Fox 5's Lisa Evers that some kids did something similar at his business about a week earlier than the incident at Dunkin' Donuts.

He said, "It's not safe around her."

Parent fail. Pure and simple. The police cannot create good citizens. Society certainly isn't trying very hard either.

Wow. My daughter and son-in-law just moved to Manhattan a couple of weeks ago. They looked at apartments in Greenwich Village, but they were WAAAY overpriced. I'm glad they found a place on the upper West Side. (I think).

Gone are the days when shopkeepers kept a baseball bat behind the counter in NYC.

But around here you take your chances.

What the hell is this country coming to? Could you even imagine this happening 50 or 30 years ago? Certain "people"and their lack of respect just infuriate me...
Old video but this is so frustrating it makes me see red.

It'll get worse, especially in particular areas.

I was going to say anywhere that the sense of entitlement outweighs the sense of decency...

Oh wait, it's the same thing.

This has been going on in Chicago for a while. It's just now that the M S M is finally reporting the problem. Second City Cop has been bloging about it for a while.

Top cop Garry McCarthy has plan to go after Michigan Ave. Ďflash mobí rings.
"...the uptick in juvenile arrests doesnít tell the whole story. Many store owners are reluctant to press charges for fear that a surge in arrests could scare away law-abiding customers. Whether itís shoplifting, aggressive panhandling or vagrancy, there are certain retailers who just donít want to get involved for any number of reasons. Thatís very frustrating,Ē

I am not LE and my question is what would happen if I smacked these kids when they started that garbage? Could I clam self defense as a patron?

That is asinine logic at it's best...

Here's a similar thing I saw on youtube while watching that one: Marine on leave from Afghanistan and his wife went to the movies, both jumped by a gang of teens.

Pepper spray is great for unruly crowds or mutual combatant idiot fights.

Oh wait, it's the same thing.

I've been using the phrase "entitlement mentality" for the last six months or so. What it means is that certain people think they are "special" and can do whatever they please.

I was in my local Rite Aid drug store one afternoon last year, and helped the store manager and pharmacy tech break up a fight. Two black females came in the store, saw another black female who worked in the store, and decided to jump her because they didn't like her. A lot of breakage, warrants were signed and the store manager went after the two in a civil suit for damages.

When are we, as a society, going to say that we don't tolerate such behavior and come down hard on people who do things this? When are we going to say enough is enough?

How do you figure? Doesn't look like a case any competent attorney would risk his money on.
