‘Bash mobs’ sweep through Southern California

By Ari Bloomekatz
Organized “bash mob” crime rampages of roving groups attacking innocent people and businesses have been striking cities around the United States. Law enforcement agencies in Southern California have reported few similar problems — until now.

In the last several days, there have been several reports of such group crime waves in South L.A., Hollywood, San Bernardino and Victorville. Long Beach police are bracing for another one Friday.

These so-called bash mobs of “flash mob” crime waves are organized through social media and have been a problem in Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington. In April, 28 Chicago youths were arrested on suspicion of attacking pedestrians along the city’s famed Magnificent Mile. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation in May enacting stiffer penalties for people who text or use social media to organize mob attacks.

Long Beach police warned in a statement that participants could face severe penalties.

“The mere participation in such an event can result in felony charges including conspiracy, and are punishable by imprisonment in the state prison,” according to the statement.  (taken in part from the Los Angeles Times, July 19, 2013)

What are we as society to do?  Families?  Individuals?  How do we prepare for the social chaos that seems to be increasing daily?

How many guns – magazines – rounds does one need to carry in this environment?  Can we depend on the government to protect us?  What about real militias, not just these wanna-be bands of tacticool, nylon-clad mall rent-a-cops?

I’ve no answers today, only questions.

  1. I’m not seeing any locations on the list where the right to carry is not severely restricted. Could this be a coincidence or are these folks not as dumb as they seem?

  2. What Juvat said. To answer your question, how much armament does a person need? Probably two magazines more than one can reasonably carry. :/

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
