300-kid-strong flash mob "destroys" mall Brooklyn

Some of the videos have been removed by here's the article although it seems contradictory as to what happened. Knowing that place I am not surprised that fights broke out between different people involved and I'm sure some spilled over into the stores or mall carts.



A sizable crowd of teens had assembled at the mall after a Facebook message said to be there on Thursday. One girl was taken into custody after the fight but wasn’t charged.

The NYPD assigned extra officers to patrol a Brooklyn mall on Friday — a day after it was crashed by a teen stampede.

Cops swarmed the Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin to prevent any hint of a repeat of a flash mob of more than 300 kids who started fighting, yelling and running wild.

Mall officials requested that “minor children have an adult escort” at the buyers’ haven.

The pandemonium on Thursday was sparked by a Facebook post in which young people were urged to put Kings Plaza “on tilt,” police sources said.

Video posted online of the madness shows several girls getting into fights before police officers intervene, and other kids dashing throughout the mall.

Abu Taleb watched in horror as the teens poached items from other vendors. He said he couldn’t escape the throngs of pint-sized pickpockets as they raided his jars of sweets — and tried to get their paws on his cash.

“It was scary,” Taleb told the Daily News. “Everybody was scared. There were a lot of people, a lot of kids. It was very loud. Security tried to stop them, but they could not do it.

“Kids tried to get my cash from the register,” he continued. “(One) had scissors and was acting like he (was) going to attack me.”


Despite online evidence of the mall melee, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said no one filed a complaint about being assaulted or robbed.

Deputy Chief Kim Royster said cops were called about 9 p.m. Thursday to disperse the crowd of rascals, who caused more of a ruckus than a crime.

“They weren’t stealing anything,” said the NYPD spokeswoman. “They weren’t assaulting anyone. They were going through the mall, making loud noises. Some were fighting with each other.”

A flash mob of 300 poured into Kings Plaza Mall after a Facebook post urged to put the Brooklyn shopping center 'on tilt.'

Royster said the doors were ordered shut while the troublemakers, their post-Christmas riot winding down, were booted out. About 20 minutes later, the doors were reopened.


Sources said police were also there earlier, at about 6:30 p.m., to break up the first wave of rowdy behavior — including several fights involving about six girls.

One girl was briefly taken into custody, then told to go home.

At least one of the fights started because one girl was wearing a shirt with a picture of another girl with a derogatory comment underneath.

Hashem Muhammad, who works at Air Walkers, a balloon stand on the second floor, described a crazy scene.


“Kids were dancing everywhere,” he said. “The customers and their kids were scared.”

As shoppers gathered Friday to capitalize on post-Christmas sales, extra NYPD vehicles could be seen outside the mall’s entrances.

Inside, a Sears security guard said he was told to keep out kids under 18 unless they were with an adult.

Frequent shopper Angel Craig, 15, said he was stopped Friday when he entered the mall.

“It’s unfair. Not every teenager is reckless,” Angel said. “I wouldn’t come to a mall and wreak havoc.”

I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a moment and give thanks for the great contributions of the Black community has made to society. Their peaceful and generous nature make them ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting skills unrivaled by any other culture. Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people.



Real estate values are fueled by the mix of African Americans into an area due to their caring and respectful nature for these communities, an example of all they have achieved through their enthusiasm for self improvement by hard work and a self-reliant can-do culture of integrity and honor. Without their industrious and creative drive, we would be poorer as a nation. God bless them all!



So much truth

I would like to apologize to all the white kids that were hurt by my comment and my gross misjudging of the situation. Who'da thunk it

I understand what you are trying to say. But there is definitely blame to spread around. You take a group of people and oppress them for hundreds of years. Culturally you are going to stunt their ability to self manage and self govern.
Every culture has been enslaved for hundreds of years at some point in history you idiot. Read a book. The word slaves is derived from slav as in slavic people. It's not an excuse for anything. Tell me which of these 300 hoodlums were ever slaves?!

Do you justify your own bad deeds by citing your great grandfathers living conditions?

The society we live in today is filled with idiotic pussies. Grow a pair and a brain. Phone Post 3.0

Older black folks - not these kids parents but grandparents are a very hardworking decent people. Somehow their kids turned out horrible and so on. Phone Post 3.0

One could argue that the black community is more stunted and broken today then they were pre civil rights movement. Phone Post 3.0

I see people as individuals. One black person is just as good as one white person. Like MLK said, 'judge em' by the content of their characters'.

However it's almost impossible for a rational mind to NOT look at groups of people in instances like this. We look at averages almost instinctively.

When looking at groups, there is a difference between black and white, and you'd be a fool not to notice it.

It's not just in America, it's all over.

Sub-Sahara Africa has always been a shithole, and always will be. If you talk to Africans, they will straight up tell you: "I wish white people were governing us". My pops toured Africa a few years back, he said that statement was common place.

And before people claim that whites ruined Africa, read a history book. White people had not even VISITED the interior of Africa until the mid 1800's.

Sorry folks, racism in regard to GROUPS of people, is quite justified.
