Crime pays

Just learned on the radio that a gang of girls “flash mobbed” a convenience store in DC yesterday.

Well, apparently, what these girls learned from the flash mob in Germantown, Maryland is, “we can do that too.”

So crime pays for now.

Presuming these girls are identified, apprehended, charged & sentenced, what will their future be? Will they “turn straight” or continue with some form of criminal activity? Will they graduate from high school or college? Will they become productive members of society or be a burden on society, by receiving welfare, Section 8 Housing Vouchers or being imprisoned?

And meanwhile the rest of society suffers. Will convenience stores and small shops be more restrictive or start profiling customers?

I hope this fad ends soon!

    Obviously something bad happened at the flashmob site in Maryland, but I don’t know what…and now you have me curious. Can you enlighten those of us who didn’t see that news? Thanks!

      At least the way it happened at the Maryland store, a handful of young people entered the 7-11 (probably to check out how many employees, how many patrons). Shortly thereafter (probably a signal sent), a group of about 20 additional young people rush into the store. They take things off the shelf. There are so many of them, the store employees can’t do to muich. The young people leave with their loot.
