300 Teens Destroy Wal-Mart (Guess where?)

Y'all love your Florida stories...

From HuffPo...
When you party at this place, you never run out of ice, chips, paper plates, beer and soda -- all at affordable prices.

Youths who had their house party broken up by the cops quickly moved the rager to a nearby Jacksonville Walmart on Saturday night, creating a veritable flash mob, according to News 4JAX.

A police report obtained by the station said the group of about 300 destroyed an electronic anti-shop lifting security scanner that costs about $1,500.

The Florida Times Union reports that the youngsters also allegedly stole snacks and sodas from the store and that gunshots were fired into the air outside the Walmart, but no one was injured.

Police are looking over video of the incident to determine if charges will be filed, and there was also a report that someone was shot at the preceding house party. Both incidents are under investigation, according to the Times Union.

Video of the Walmart flash mob posted on YouTube generated a number of racially-tinged comments about the mostly African-Americans featured in the clip.

Some commenters expressed a general sense of dismay.

"As you watch this video, you watch the future of America," one commenter wrote. "How does it look?"

Re: 300 Teens Destroy Wal-Mart (Guess where?)

So they destroyed a WalMart or just the scanner?

And how could anyone tell the difference?

They'd be calling the National Guard in if this was a Target!

Fortunately a leper colony such as Walmart exists, so that I can avoid it, and those who frequent it, and shop peacefully at Target.

Re: 300 Teens Destroy Wal-Mart (Guess where?)

Get this over the last couple of years Wal-mart has been trying to open a store in Chicago. In the urban black areas here in Chicago. They have been unable to cause something to do with the city council. The black community wants it cause of the jobs it will bring. I always shook my head on why Wal-Mart would want to open a store in a urban area in Chicago.

Walmart wants their stores everywhere. Is that really hard to believe? They would open a store in Hell if the Devil would have them.

In Austin, they have one store within the Mo-Pac/183/I-35/SR-71 loop and it's the most janky store because of the concessions they had to make in order to build there. They basically took a Super Wal-Mart, weren't allow a garden center, auto shop, and had to make it half the size of a regular Super Wal-Mart. Because of the locals complaining. It's funny because it's like a mini Super-Walmart (it's not laid out like a regular Wal-Mart).

On the edges of this loop, there's a regular Super Wal-Mart on every side.

So yeah, if they want to get somewhere, they'll find a way.

Seriously though... we've got some VERY douchey white people in Texas. Douches come in all races, colours, and creeds.

It is the catsup that brings our species together. Just never on hot dogs. Unless it's curry catsup. Then you're just a catsup lover.

... Catsup.

The population of Hell is a little low for their own Wal-Mart, but there are 2 within 20 miles.

Most of Chicago is "urban". Could you make your racism more clear?

I'm not really shocked. The reason they want to do this is because they get the local community to help fund the creation of the store. I'm sure Walmart just doesn't use 100% of their own money to build a store. I would guess they influence local politicians to offset taxes, and pay for the parking lot, etc.

Walmart figures even with the potential for crime, they would still make a killing off their Made In China merchandise.
