The Christian Science Monitor website reports today (August 10, 2011) that in three large U.S. cities -- Milwaukee, Chicago, and Philadelphia -- flash mob attacks have recently occurred allegedly by black youth.
Officials in these cities are enforcing curfews and requiring chaperones for teens. Teen-perpetrated crimes in these cities have been part opportunistic, part thrill-seeking, and part racially motivated: dozens of black teenagers collectively targeting -- and attacking -- white people they don't even know.
On August 8, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter said he would add street patrols, and start enforcing a 9 p.m. weekend curfew for 13- to 18-year-olds.
In a message this week to the black mob suspects, Mayor Nutter -- Philadelphia's third black mayor -- said, "You have damaged your own race."
