DROxINxTHExWIND: vegasj: Let me guess...

Well dressed, well mannered, well spoken group of white kids?

Let me guess. An anonymous bigot who hides behind the internet to say things he can't say publically?

Call the cops. Again when the cops show up tell them that you want to start filing restraining orders against the teens. Once they start to violate the restraining orders they can go spend some time in jail.

Saw this on channel 2 a week ago. Sigh. I feel bad for the store owner. He should just pack up and move back to whatever wartorn country he originally came from. I don't know who told him to run a gas station in Detroit, but they were not very nice to him. I can only hope these youths stay in Detroit and keep out of Ann Arbor. I don't mind the occasional romp of slumming it in Ypsi, but even that is getting worse. Sometimes I just want to go out and have fun and not have to worry about being "caught slippin'" whilst purchasing the latest issue of Husky Gentleman Enthusiast magazine--or a FARKING DONUT!!! It is amazing how a few bad apples spoil the bunch. Why don't they have anything better to do than hang out and make disgusting comments towards people just trying to buy a donut for their wife that has had a bad day?
So thankful our main friends moved out of ypsi so I don't ever have to think about the In n Out store again as well. Whew, nothing but trouble at that place. I hated having to go up there with him :(

If the truth is taht there are black kids being assholes at a gas station, then no, the truth is not racist. Hwever, if your truth is that the reason these asshole kids have taken over a gas station is because they are black, well, you're not that bright.

RobotSpeaksFlowers: Just play some good old classical music, like Strauss. On a loop.


Polka medley.

On the first day of my summer vacation, I woke up.
"Then I went downtown.
To look for
A
Job.
Then I hung out in front of the drugstore...."


If this area had a neighborhood association, they could combine their money to hire an off-duty cop to hang there. The local park near my old neighborhood had a loitering/drug problem, until they did this and it worked in just a couple of days, with a once a week random touch-up visit.

I agree the mosquito noise, and the unpopular music would be good non-aggressive but potentially effective countermeasures. Mosquito may be reduced in effectiveness because blaring hip-hp all day might deafen the kids prematurely.

Off-duty officer? Nah. This guy needs Knockout Ned.

Yes, but you LOOK like a angry, uppity, black man... so you're obviously guilty! Look at you, with the dreds and chin whiskers... you obviously just raped vegas' wife, assaulted him, stole his tax dollars and then negated his vote. How dare you be black!

If he asks them to leave and they do not then they are trespassing. Have them arrested.

If only Detroit had some vacant property where these teens could meet.

ZeroCorpse: I worked in a gas station in the Detroit area. Night shift. 9 PM to 9 AM. Every day.

I was held up three times. Twice with gun pointed at me. Once with a baseball bat. I was assaulted once (punched) by an unruly customer. That was my last day of work. The following week I moved out of the area and never looked back.

And for the record, they were not African Americans. Every single time, it was Chaldeans. In the Detroit area, that's shorthand for "Catholic Arabs", and they were WEALTHY little farkers... They didn't need to rob gas stations. They did it for kicks.

So... Yeah. Detroit and the entire metro area sucks. Live there only if you hate yourself.


That's strange. I was under the impression that Chaldeans owned all of the gas stations in Metro Detroit.

There is a machine that makes a high squeal pitch that only teenagers can hear.

Of course if it is so out of control it would get him killed, it is time to move on.

Barry Manilow on a loop, loud. "It's A Miracle", "Mandy", "Copacabana", "I Write The Songs"... they'll leave.

I believe that the same approach was tried with punks in london hanging out in front of theaters, playing classical. Something like that if I have a few details wrong. Pretty soon the kids were into it.

I bet they would be creating hip-hop mashups to 40's show tunes.

/That might be pretty cool.

You obviously have no idea how bad Ypsilanti *used* to be in the 80's-90's. Ypsi is a burgeoning metropolis compared to those days.

tl/dr Ypsi is getting better, not worse.

For a brief second, I thought the headline said "lolita teens".

/feel bad now.

Jeez, I thought Americans worshipped capitalism.

Can't you smell the opportunity in the air?

Do you know how independent convenience stores in Edmonton survive?

They start selling crap at a nifty mark-up which appeals to their target market:

Oversized T-shirts
Bongs
Stupid crap with a marijuana motif
Flags
Bandannas,
Stupid ballcaps with perfectly flat brims
Crack lighters
Papers
Assorted cheap "bling" manufactured in China

This guy shouldn't be running away, he should be cashing in!

Does anyone remember the UK store owner with a similar problem who got rid of the teens by playing a high pitched noise that only teenagers can hear? The owner piped it inside and outside his store.

I can't find the news story, but a quick GIS found: The Sonic Teenager Deterrent, nicknamed the Mosquito because of its sound,

Considering the demographic population of Detroit I think we can both be right

Easy fix, tell them all that they are trespassing, and if they come back,they will be arrested. They will probably burn the place down after it closes, but hey, you stood up to them.

CapeFearCadaver: ScotterOtter: Blast some heavy metal music

I tried with some neighbors once who were blasting techno at 2am... since I wasn't getting any sleep anyways and might as well listen to what I want to hear. It only ended up in a blast-music-play-off. No one was the winner there.


Bagpipes.

These fine, upstanding young citizens need decent housing, clothing, food, and schooling given to them so they will not feel the sting of poverty and therefore be forced to rage against the 1% who insist on keeping them trapped in Detroit. All these angels with dirty faces need is compassion, and then their naturally kind, industrious, loving and caring natures will blossom. Why do we show no compassion for our fellow man?
