Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

This event is horrible but... It's not a flash mob.
-It is a seriously scary thought that there are subsets of American society that think being intellectual is a BAD thing...
Sadly this type of mass looting isn't new. Way back in the 60's all the punks from my school walked out to "protest the Vietnam War". What they really did was walk up to the corner 7-11 in mass and cleaned out every single last container of alcohol. I know some of them had good parents. At some point the kid bears sole responsibilty for his/her actions.
edit - Boy, would it be a nice world if all that happened. Along with the other things a society such as that entails, equality for all and justice for everyone. Not even bringing race into it (which I should) we all know about how you or I could rob millions off of millions and get a mcmansion prison cell for a few years, and "good behavior" (duh, well behaved because you aren't forced to protect yourself). On the other hand, steal a candy bar, or better yet ask a police officer for his badge number and get trumped and put away for a couple years.
Take your pick. God bless this world
