A large group of teens entered a Walgreens on South Street in Philadelphia. The group knocked items off the shelves, threw items at employees and left the store with unpaid merchandise.

This sort of things seems to be happening with greater frequency lately .... I wonder how it can be stopped?

I thought somebody might post this, I never thought it would be you.

The store camera's caught plenty of images. Can they be identified and prosecuted with that?

I was thinking that even if only one or two were psoitively identified it migh help a lot. They could be charged (with whatever crimes they were shown on camera committing)-- then plea bargain-- get off entirely or with a very light sentence in exchange for identifying others...)

Can't they be looked at as young libertarians expressing their anti-authority inclinations?

Meaning what?

A Maytag is a machine that provides heat and goes round and round. It's function is to dry newly washed clothes.

Actually there's another part to that story:

The high cost of Trump's washing machine tariffs

We can hope there are benefits on the way, because the costs are already apparent. Trump once assured the public, “Trade wars are good, and easy to win.” But so far, his protectionist measures have been good mainly for extracting money from American consumers and hurting farmers.

One of his first moves was to put heavy new duties on imported washing machines, starting at 20 percent. The stated reason was that “increased foreign imports of washers and solar cells and modules are a substantial cause of serious injury to domestic manufacturers.” The main targets of the tariffs were South Korean manufacturers Samsung and LG.

How has that worked out? A new study published by the Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago indicates the answer is: not well. Trump claims that tariffs are paid by foreigners, serving as a windfall to the U.S. Treasury. But economists Aaron Flaaen, Ali Hortacsu and Felix Tintelnot found that the burden actually falls on American consumers. (Read it all)

I had both a Maytag washer and drier, but the drier can be used to "spin-dry", and so for those who don't get it, it means to "spin" an excuse for or defence of those little criminals.

I could be wrong, but my guess would be that all (or certainly most) of thesde young hooligans probably do not have any highly developed political philosophy....their motive is much cruder.

Of course that's not going to stop the intellectually challenged majority on NT from trying to see everything in light of their own biased political agendas.

Which is why so much of the discussion here is just so plain fuckin' stupid...juvenile...and off-putting to anyone with even a brain or two in their heads!)

Good point-- just another bunch of normal teenage kids-- expressing typical teenage rebelliousness! Its a normal stage all teenagers must grow through to develop!

We should not try to stop this-- that would hinder their emotional development and lower their self-esteem!

Rather, they are to be encouraged for expressing their true inner thoughts and feelings!

****Before I get lambasted for using the lowlife scumbag epithet, please be aware that I use that for ALL LLSBT's.  The LLSBT club is very non-discriminatory.  It accepts both sexes and all races and nationalities bar none.   It's the most accepting club in existence.

Now, in lieu of asshole to describe certain individuals, I prefer the term shithead or even dinkle-berry.  More apropos and both are totally useless.

I think you need to re-read my comment.  You clearly didn't get it.  In other words, if they are going to commit crimes, damage property and steal then we should be able to deduct it from the reparations they are seeking.  They clearly think they are entitled to what they are stealing.  Get it now....?

So will people like Barack Obama and Kamala Harris, who are descendants of slave owners and not slaves, owe money to white people who are the equivalent of Elizabeth warren, with 1/1000 slave ancestry?

race based economic redistribution is a mess.

I agree. There isn't a plausible way to do reparations fairly that would have any real effect other than to give some people a feel good moment.

Careful-- that's a slippery slope!

Because it raises the obvious question: if Whites are going to have to pay reparations, will that only be required of White people who can be proven to be direct descendents of slave owners?

(If that's the case-- what about people whose ancestors immigrated here after the abolition of slavery? Probably the vast majority of "Whites").

And another thing those morons advocating reparations don't consider: what about someone who is descended from a slave owner-- on one side of the family. But whose other parent was descended from...a slave?

That's how they end up living in Food Deserts. Food Deserts always seem to be in areas of high crime and it's because businesses can't turn a profit when 10% of their customers are robbing them blind so they close those unprofitable stores.

Something like this happened before.  There is a group that barges in and it is so many, that the store can do nothing about it.  It’s a plan thought up by the criminals. Sort of like going in numbers to overwhelm the employees.

Slick don’t ya think?

Its seems to be ahppening from time to time and is gradually increasing recently (?)-- single stores being looted like this.

Of course there were also times in history where there was looting on a massive scale-- for example during hurricane Katrina:

Katrina Looting (8/30/2005): 

384

Looters make their way Tuesday into and out of a grocery store in New Orleans, where floodwaters continue to rise.

NEW ORLEANS — With much of the city flooded by Hurricane Katrina, looters floated garbage cans filled with clothing and jewelry down the street in a dash to grab what they could.

In some cases, looting on Tuesday took place in full view of police and National Guard troops.

At a Walgreen’s drug store in the French Quarter, people were running out with grocery baskets and coolers full of soft drinks, chips and diapers. (Read it all)
