    Retailers Increasingly Worried About 'Flash Robs' - WSJ.com

    The National Retail Federation says that flash-mob attacks were reported by 10% of the 106 retailers it surveyed in July, a group that included department stores and big-box chains, as well as grocery and drug-store operators.

    For the first time the trade association included advice for handling flash mobs in its recommendations to its members about controlling crowds during big events.
    The 19-year-old suspected of organizing the (Sears) flash mob pleaded guilty in September to misdemeanor shoplifting and conspiracy charges and was sentenced to two years' probation.


    So, just another risk to be aware of. There's a bunch of common sense stuff here, but as an individual, I would just head for the closest exit asap.

    That's crap. They let him plead to misd shoplifting instead of going for burglary.
