I'm confused.  Why did they need to chase the teenagers away?  Were they causing problems?  Was it just scary having 200 kids hanging around?

I wonder if I could encourage people via social media to give me copious amounts of cash for no apparent reason? That'd be pretty great. Don't steal my idea. Actually, I'm not greedy, let's pool our collective social engineering skills, coupled with the power of Fark, and get even more money.

That would be most uplifting.

Getting them used to going places for no reason could be beneficial to the military.

I can support conditioning like that.

Recently there have been stories about flashmob bandits. Groups of teenagers will converge on a store and just start stealing stuff. Since there's so many there's no way security can nab all of them. Not saying that's what was happening here, but that's what they might have been worried about.

Take a look at the crowd, not just skin color but how they are dressed. This will probably give a hint if their goal is to loot or break into a dance number.

Lots of malls restrict kids. If you are under 18 and in a group of more than 3, often they kick you out for loitering.

If you are talking about not just the movie, but the fact that I mention race, it can matter.

Little old ladies did not planes into the WTC and patting them down is stupid, although assuming anyone with the name Muhammad is a terrorist is just really, really stupid and racist.

And if you see a bunch of people wearing the wrong type of clothes indicating a specific type of social-ethnic background, you may have a theft-based flashmob.

/If they are wearing tights and carrying large backpacks in a funny way, you may have a dance based flashmob.

No, and Muslims didn't blow up the Oklahoma City building or shoot up Columbine, Sandy Hook or the Aurora theater. What's your point?

And if you see a bunch of people wearing the wrong type of clothes indicating a specific type of social-ethnic background, you may have a theft-based flashmob.

First of all, your assumption that there is a right and wrong type of clothes says a lot. The fact that you think these clothes indicate social-ethnic background, and not just a silly fad that teenagers have, says even more.

Well, to be fair, two hundred kids showing up in one place for no reason is more of a social media success story and not Mallrats. Though I bet all 200 of them would be able to see the sailboat before Willem does!

You are right, forgot about the other type of terrorist in the US. I still think feeling up little kids and old ladies is dumb. Security needs to be smarter.

First of all, your assumption that there is a right and wrong type of clothes says a lot. The fact that you think these clothes indicate social-ethnic background, and not just a silly fad that teenagers have, says even more.

Take a look at some of the videos where they have flash mobs that walk out with goods. I think you will see a common element in how most of those kids dress.

And it is the job of a mall cop to know what to look for, assuming they are not dumb as dirt and just being reactive to any possible threat.

That's not even new. They used to do it with this ancient form of communication called "the telephone." And before that, it was this archaic method of contact known as "Dude, let's go to the store and do some crimes."

Agreed, but I don't see the point in comparing loitering teenagers to 9/11 terrorists.

Enemabag Jones:

Like teenagers? Everyone who dresses a certain way is suspicious?

Enemabag Jones: And it is the job of a mall cop to know what to look for, assuming they are not dumb as dirt and just being reactive to any possible threat.


Yes, they should be looking for suspicious behavior, not skin color or clothing style. In this case, they did the right thing, not only because of the potential thefts, but because the kids were loitering.

On private property your rights change depending on the will of the property owner. If I go to steamworks with only a leather jockstrap and bacon flavored condoms pay my entry fee and go work out with the free weights nobody will have a problem, if I do the same thing at planet fitness the cops will be called

mamoru: Teenagers need a reason to gather at a mall? Truly the terrorists have won. :-/


I don't think that hanging out at the mall has been a teenager pastime since the 1980s (early-1990s at the latest).  These days teenagers hang out at home and send naked pics to each other using SnapChat when they're not playing Call of Duty multiplayer.
 
2013-06-26 03:25:07 AM  
200 people and nobody knew who organized it or what the plan was? Businesses should use this in lieu of conventional advertising. "Okay everbody, meet up at to the Lauderhill Mall food court and order Big Macs! EPIC!1!"

Or terrorists who want to avoid security at crowded venues could just tell a teen flashmob to gather 'round their pile o' pressure cookers. A crowd of 200 suggestible people provides so much potential for abuse!

BolloxReader: If you are under 18 and in a group of more than 3, often they kick you out for loitering.


And if the same policy read "over 40" instead of "under 18" it would be illegal everywhere in the US. But that's okay because children aren't really full people, not like adults who have accomplished the grand task of not dying for a couple of decades.

You should really work on your reading comprehension. I said it was suspicious, and that were rightly kicked out. I was responding to something someone else said about skin color and clothes. Seriously, I've never seen you contribute anything of value to any thread, ever. Just go away.
