Is this really what America has come to be for some?
All hell broke loose at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota the day after Christmas as hundreds of youths rioted, threw chairs, drinks, punches and anything they could get a hold of. No one was reported seriously hurt; however, 9 people were arrested, including several juveniles for disorderly conduct. Is this their idea of a Christmas flash mob? I think the punk youths missed the point, this is a proper flash mob (VIDEO - Hallelujah Chorus).
Witnesses said the fights started after there were reports that rappers Lil’ Wayne and Drake were visiting the Mall. Oh, cuz Lil’ Wayne and Drake were there, that makes it perfectly ok for youths to lose their collective minds and riot. Good Grief!
As reported at KARE 11. Honestly, who acts like this?
Fists flew and so did a few chairs during a large-scale brawl at the Mall of America Monday.
“Anytime you have a large group of people together things can happen,” said Commander Mark Stehlik with Bloomington Police. “But this is highly unusual.”
Shortly after 4 p.m., authorities confirm more than 20 individuals started fighting in the north food court. Cellphone video uploaded to YouTube shows dozens of young people watching while some push, punch, and even throw chairs. At that same time, police say several other fights flared up in other places of the mall.
“There were drinks thrown on the floor and chairs being thrown everywhere,” said Tess Dessalgne who witnessed the brawl. “Everyone started running towards the fight.”
