Flash Mob Crimes And Organized Looting Have Become A Normal Part Of Life In America

Once upon a time, most Americans had never even heard of “flash mob robberies” or “organized looting”.  Now they are considered to be a part of normal life in America.  On Saturday, more than 20 teens stormed into a trendy clothing store in Chicago and stole more than $3,000 worth of jeans, but it barely made a blip on the national news because this kind of thing has become so common.  After all, we just saw the exact same kind of thing happen in Jacksonville, Detroit, Baltimore and a whole bunch of other places.  Flash mob crimes have become so common in Chicago that they take public opinion polls about them.  But when I first started writing about this phenomenon a couple of years ago, hardly anyone knew what “mob robberies” were.  In fact, I had to explain what these “flash mobs” were doing to a couple of radio hosts because they had never heard of such a thing.  But now everybody knows about the flash mobs.  Another disturbing trend that we are seeing all over America is “organized looting”.  Groups of desperate criminals are going into empty or abandoned buildings and stripping out copper wire, copper pipes and anything else that they can sell for money.  At one time these kinds of thefts made the news, but now they have also become so common that they don’t get much notice anymore.

Chaos On The Streets Of America

Should we just expect mass chaos on the streets of America every time a major holiday rolls around?  At least 42 people were hit by gunfire in New York City over the Labor Day weekend.  The violence got so bad that even the mayor felt compelled to publicly address it.  In Chicago, at least 6 people (including a man in a wheelchair) were killed over the Labor Day weekend.  Sadly, this is just a continuation of a trend that we have seen build over the past few years.  At the beginning of the summer, there was terrible violence all over America during the Memorial Day weekend.  We also saw violence break out during 4th of July celebrations.  It appears that wherever large groups of young people gather in America today, there is going to be a very good chance that chaos is going to erupt.

10 Facts About Crime In The United States That Will Blow Your Mind

Many Americans are already painfully aware that violent crime is experiencing a massive upsurge in the United States.  As the U.S. economy has tanked and as unemployment has skyrocketed, many Americans have found themselves becoming increasingly desperate.  Hard economic times usually lead to an increase in crime, but what is happening across the U.S. now is absolutely stunning.  In economically-troubled areas such as Detroit crime statistics are climbing into the stratosphere.  In fact, there are many communities in the United States where it is simply not safe to go out at night anymore.  Millions of Americans find themselves prisoners in their own homes as they lock themselves in their houses in an attempt to keep the crime out.  The truth is that it is really hard to live the American Dream when there is a raging crime wave going on right outside your door.  The truly frightening thing is that crime is almost certainly going to get even worse as economic conditions continue to deteriorate.
