Black teenagers in mass mall fights across US on the same day

Judging by video evidence, the participants in the violent mall brawls over the Christmas weekend in several cities in the US, were overwhelmingly black teens.

    The motive behind the mall brawls appears to be yet more “restorative justice“, already a common theme in American schools and colleges.

    Thousands of blacks rioted in a dozen US states across on the day after Christmas in urban areas where a slide towards majority violent nonwhite slums is continuing.

    Black males between the ages of 14 and 17 already commit homicide at ten times the rate of their white counterparts of the same age.

    The media have assiduously ignored this fact, as they have for previous violent flash mob episodes by non-whites. CNN, in reporting on the chaos, has refused to identify the race of the perpetrators, calling them “juveniles” even though the video and photographic evidence is clear.

    United Press International (UPI), for example, reported that “groups of teens” took Boxing Day, “a holiday that has nothing to do with boxing, somewhat literally on Monday, getting into fights and causing disturbances at roughly a dozen malls across the country”.

    The New York Times said that “chaos struck at least 15 malls across the country on Monday” as “fights broke out”, suggesting that such fights just “break out” all by themselves. The Times added that “the disturbances” were caused by “feuding teenagers” who had “disrupted post-Christmas shopping in cities in at least a dozen states” across the country.

    The mall incidents, which ranged from minor skirmishes to mass evacuations and reported shootings, were registred in malls from Colorado to Tennessee and Texas to New Jersey.

    A Fayetteville, NC, police statement said that several 911 calls about gunshots were from innocuous “scuffling teenagers” that had caused the mall to close.

    In Memphis, Tennessee, the Wolfchase Galleria reported gunfire too while The Oak Court Mall had to be closed, according to authorities.

    At The Mills in Jersey Gardens, New Jersey, at least 48 000 shoppers fled in chaos after “shots fired” were heard in the mall.

    The town center of Aurora, Colorado had to be closed down completely after mobs of blacks rampaged through the central business district, and the Fox Valley Mall in Aurora, Illinois, a similar fate awaited businesses.

    Police in Indianapolis said they “arrested several juveniles” after violence at the Castleton Square Mall, episodes which were repeated at a number of malls in Connecticut, New York’s Roosevelt Field, Ohio’s Beachwood Place, Pennsylvania’s Monroeville Mall, and Texas’s Hulen Mall.

    This refusal to report on race is not accidental. The Associated Press’s Stylebook—called the “journalist’s bible” in the industry—specifically states that race should only be mentioned in news reports when a specific suspect is being sought by the police—and even then, when the “suspect is found or apprehended, the racial reference should be removed”.

    In other words, in instances such as mass black violence as seen once again on December 26, or the ongoing black “flash mob” violence which occurs at all times of the year or non-stop school violence, the media pretends that there is no link between race and crime.

    This black “juvenile” movement goes by the name of “restorative justice” and has already resulted in anarchy in American schools. At the St Paul school district, Minnisota, which has been in the restorative-justice vanguard, assaults on teachers tripled in 2015, a report indicated.

    This week’s mall violence, which injured several police and security officers, is just the latest piece of evidence for how counterfactual the credo of “restorative justice” is.

    St Pauls’s high schools have become menacing places where gangs of out-of-control teens prowl the halls, and “classroom invasions” by students settling private disputes are commonplace.

    Fights that “might have been between two individuals” can grow into “melees involving up to 40 or 50 people,” according to Steve Linders, a St Paul police spokesman. Roving packs often attack individuals, in what police call “riots”.

    In December 2015, teachers threatened to strike over mounting safety concerns. “Do students and staff deserve to come to work every day and not expect to be assaulted?” demanded Denise Rodriguez, president of the St. Paul Federation of Teachers.
