Mob of teens caught on tape ransacking
convenience store in 20 minute spree
before TWERKING in defiance as
clerk desperately tries to stop them

Daily Mail [UK], by Helen Pow

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/9/2014 6:46:38 PM

A mob of teenagers have been caught on tape robbing a convenience store in Bryan, Texas. Surveillance video shows the kids rushing through the store, grabbing everything they can get their hands on as girls are seen twerking and doing the splits outside. The frightening ransacking incident took place Saturday as store clerk Terry Polsgrove, 19, was shutting up for the night. A few teenagers are seen trickling into the Chevron Food Mart, then, all of a sudden, 30 to 40 teenagers are dancing and acting ´crazy´ down the aisles and in the parking lot. The surveillance video shows some

Some rock salt and a shotgun would solve a lot of these situations really quickly, but the authorities would go after the clerk instead of the savages.

Haven´t seen the vid, yet I bet it´s just another gang of Amish "teens" in mid-rumspringa. Glad to see the politically correct Daily Mail works hard to disguise their ethnic background.

Obviously a staged video. In reality only 13% of the animals were black as crime and misbehavior occur in the same ratio as the population. That´s why Eric Holder claims minorities are misrepresented in school discipline statistics and is pressuring public schools to keep the animals in their cages, err, classrooms.

This is what comes from declaring one group of (alleged) people to be a protected species. I´d make a wise-acre remark about them being animals but that would insult some very fine animals. There´s a word for these people that sums it all up in a nice, concise package...you use this word and everyone will nod their heads and say "Yup"...but you can´t use that word...publicly. We all know what that word is and it explains everything except why these ´chil´run´ aren´t in a group holding cell.

Also, if this was a 20-minute spree, at what point were the police called and how long did it take them to arrive?

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

When William Hague, our Foreign Secretary, warns that Russia is quietly orchestrating anti-government protests in eastern Ukraine, his words should be taken as a wake-up call to all those other EU foreign ministers who are none too keen on standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin´s newfound enthusiasm for Tsarist-style military adventures.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
