What is wrong with people today? We are now reaping the benefits of a generation of liberalism run amok! That's what's wrong.
Almost 3 decades of diminishing values. Values are not taught in schools because values are discriminatory. People do what they want with no repercussions because we teach kids nothing is their fault. Kids are taught in school that the values parents try to instill in their kids are based on the parents own prejudices and having a prejudice is wrong. Kids are taught in school that the tenants of their religious beliefs held by their church for millennium are wrong because they discriminate. Wonder why kids can't pray in school?
This has been happening slowly for a generation. And now we are merely reaping the benefits of people not paying attention of the progressive movement which has taken over our learning institutions. It wasn't until the progressive movement infiltrated government and made an overarching move that this administration has done did people finally begin to wake up.
It will probably take another generation to fix it. If it can be fixed at all. It may be too late. Rome didn't fall in a day, but it fell none the less.

That would be much easier said than done if you had been in this particular situation. Remember that a far larger crowd had gathered to watch the confrontation, and most likely even egg the aggressors on.
You might be able to deal with the initial attackers, but you would risk provoking the rest of the crowd, who might then join in. One could literally ignite a race riot in a situation like this one, by shooting a bunch of black teenagers.
There were a number of ways that this incident could have exploded into something much bigger and worse. Thank goodness, though, it did not.
I'm not surprised by anything anymore. Youth of today are growing up in a far different world than most of us and the social impact of this de-sensitization and demoralization is leading to these types of encounters being more common. This type of group attack is one reason I carry as well as the main reason I don't go to movies, malls, or anywhere else unless I have to. I did go to a large cinema complex not long ago for my daughter's bday party. We invited a bunch of kids and they all piled in our van and my truck and went. They had a party room, game room, toured the behind the scenes deal, and saw a movie. I carried a 13+1 9mm with two spare mags plus a 38spcl revolver weak side. No law against it in VA and it wasn't posted. I kept it concealed at all times. I ventured to the mall with my family once this Christmas season...it's enough to remind me why I don't go to such places much anymore. Large crowds of people who don't care about anyone or anything but themselves. I'll just skip that kind of scene every chance I get. I'll just keep going out to eat at the local places that the old fogies like while the youngsters go to town for the chain restaurants. The older I get, the more I like old fogies.

Ya'all talk as if this is a new problem....lack of respect.
When I was in college in the 70's, I was sent to a public school to student teach a batch of 16 year old brats. After about a day, I wanted to beat each and everyone of them so bad that I dropped my quest for a teaching certificate and changed to Criminal Justice.
What's wrong with these kids? Not brought up right in part because the "system" doesn't allow their parents to hold them accountable for mis-deeds, and partially because their parents are too busy to notice same. I really don't care which...I hold them accountable and will treat them and any other person as they would treat me.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

Don't ever think that the reason I'm peaceful is because I don't know how to be violent

Sadly, TWO of the three times I've pulled a firearm on another human involved kids of 16 and younger. One, similar to this story. BOTH involving MS13 members (yes, the children), as I was told by LE following each incident
