Flash mob violence in Philadelphia is an old story

Roving mobs of teens who assemble through social media networking on Philadelphia street corners to avenge perceived insults, go on shoplifting sprees and otherwise raise hell made their debut as long as two years ago. Today, the city's administration is taking action through curfews and roving flying squad patrols that round up the youngsters and hold them in lieu of stiff fines.

Here is live footage of a shooting spree that took place earlier this month after a young mother summoned kin to a certain corner following a confrontation on a city bus. After she alighted, her cousins opened fire with assault rifles.

Organizers announced direct political action at the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank this past June with this YouTube video.
