VIDEO: Flash Mob Loots Walgreens Store As Helpless Employees Can Only Watch

A flash mob made up of about 60 teenagers terrorized South Philadelphia businesses on the 4th of July.

Philadelphia, PA – A flash mob of more than 60 teenagers overran a Walgreens store on the 4th of July, stole almost $7,000 in merchandise, and injured an employee (video below).

Police said the incident occurred at about 10 p.m. on July 4 at a Walgreens drug store located in the 1800-block of South Street in South Philadelphia, WNYW reported.

Video from the entrance of the store showed approximately 60 young people rushing into the store in groups.

Once inside, the surveillance videos showed they began running through the store, knocking things off shelves and onto the floor and taking whatever they wanted.

Surveillance video showed several young men ran down the cosmetics aisle and knocked makeup to the floor as they went.

Video of the exits from the inside of the store showed teenagers running out of the Walgreens with their arms and hands loaded with stolen booty.

No police are seen intervening at any time on the video.

Two different young men stopped inside the threshold of the doors and picked up bottles of water from a nearby display that they turned and lobbed at somebody off camera.

Police said a 46-year-old employee was injured in the attack.

"In the midst of that chaos, a store employee was struck with a bottle, causing injuries to his head," Philadelphia Police Captain Sekou Kinebrew told WNYW.

The thieving vandals left the store in much the same way as they arrived, in chaotic groups, the video showed.

Police captured four of the suspects and cited them for disorderly conduct, but almost everyone fled before police arrived, WNYW reported.

The store estimated the merchandise stolen at between $6,000 and $7,000.

The same aggressive mob of teenagers is accused of having terrorized other business in the city on Independence Day, KYW reported.

Witnesses told KYW that the crowd originated in Penn’s Landing and grew in size as it moved up South Street.

Police released a series of pictures taken from surveillance videos inside the store and have said they expect to identify some of the looters, WNYW reported.

“I think it was totally unacceptable behavior,” said Kenyatta Johnson, the city councilwoman for the district the flash mob terrorized. “I think the young people who are involved and everything that took place inside the store should be held accountable. Most importantly, their parents should be held accountable.”

These are the faces of Black America today. My sympathies to those Black Leos and citizens who are the exceptions to these behaviors . Nothing but disgust and disdain for those who act this way.

Walgreens is a pharmacy that sells opiates. They should allow their employees to be armed, and have an armed guards on the premises during operating hours!

No no. They're totally entitled to commit crimes and steal without repercussions because slavery ended 150 years ago.

I'm not a racist individual, but it's hard to not notice that this mob is made up of Young Black Males and Females. All they are doing is creating a stigma associated with a race. Then these same individuals would be the first ones to scream about racial profiling and racism. It's a shame and they are shameful.

A perfect example of bad parenting and a government afraid to take action against teens and criminals in general. Is everyone going to keep getting slaps on the wrist until the purge becomes reality? Get it in gear liberal politicians. Your soft approach on crime isn't helping. Oh wait, I forgot, that's your goal. Make everything worse.

I have seen enough in the last week. The brawl at Disneyland, the fireworks war at College Station AK, the fight at the drive through in McDonalds, now this. Black people, as a whole, have embraced criminality and thrown civility out the window. It's not just "a few bad apples". It's the entire set of community values. There are a few "good apples", but they live in cosmopolitan communities. What is truly sad, is this behavior didn't exist before Obama was POTUS. If Trump stamps down on it, with federal initiatives, like "stop and frisk' in black communities, it will rally the liberals and the media, making reelection far more difficult. Besides he's dealing with the illegals right now. It truly is a situation that can only be remedied by the black community itself. However, I thought that was going to happen after Obama was elected. Instead the opposite happened. God help us.

This is what happens when parents let the streets raise their kids instead of taking responsibility.

It's only a matter of time before Walgreens, Walmart, and all big businesses leave neighborhoods like this and then they'll only be able to vandalize and threaten their neighbors. They'll complain they have to take the bus to get groceries. They'll call it redlining 2.0 and the feds will try to force service in those areas and fail. I wonder what would happen if UPS and FedEx stayed rising services to high crime areas? Oh well. They can always hope Piggly Wiggly will stick around.

Catastrophic Parental Failure. NO OTHER REASON. Catch them, prosecute them and make an EXAMPLE of them. This BULLSPIT needs to STOP.

Story after story of unacceptable behavior that is never condemned by black "leadership". Instead, they look to have their so called "reverends" criticize police officers who have to deal with this sort of thing on a daily basis. Tomorrow black lives matter "activists" (thugs and thugets) will protest and condemn the action of the police who stopped and arrested four of the heathens who participated in the flash mob. Obviously the only reason for making the stop was because they are black. Racial profiling say Shakistamarista head of the local black lives matter chapter.

When I was around 16 and in the mid 1960s, a friend of my dad, who happened to be African American, told me something that didn't make sense back then but does NOW. It was during the Watts and Harlem riots when black burned down their OWN sections of town He said "Before you say anything about the way people complain about the condition of you Back Yard,,,Maybe YOU should clean it UP" These So-Called Parents need to clean up THEIR back yard and others WON'T think so Little of them.

Didja ever hear of a “flash mob” of white people? Is it a black thing? Kinda speaks to black society in general doesn’t it?

There is a genetic component that these kids display and that can't be ignored. Good and bad traits, diseases, talent, dentition, personality are passed from one generation to the next so it isn't only just about skin color. The fault is not in our stars dear Brutus, but in our DNA.

The six to seven thousand dollars should be divided among the four thugs that were caught to pay back Walgreens. You can bet they will snitch on who the other thugs were so the payback won’t be so high.

Not only charge the kids, but the parents must be held accountable for their underaged children's actions.

Disorderly conduct? That's an understatement at best.

Black hoodlums at their best. Let me guess, Walgreens is a symbol of racism? Or wait, better yet, your great great grandparents were slaves and the guy who founded Walgreens, owned slaves and one of them was your great great grandfather.......? Or is it just that they just dwell on what is heard and seen in the movies, black lives matter, and social media so they use that as an excuse to say “there ain’t no jobs for us!” Here’s a tip, be your own person, go to school, get an education, and then leave the area you say that you can’t leave. Do better than your parents could. Instead of feeling sorry for yourselves because of something that happened years ago, does not even affect you.

Their video surveillance is a joke and they need to invest in better camera’s. HD camera’s are not only there to protect your property, but more importantly your employees and customers.

I have had and still do, many many black friends and coworkers over all my years. A lot of hardworking, good, decent and honest people. I don't consider myself to be racist but these were niggers. And trust me there are white niggers too, but I've never seen any other but black ones pull the flash mob tactic of shoplifting and vandalizing stores.

Never saw anyone except blacks who do this. This country needs to abruptly change course as to how we address these circumstances ...as in issue a warning to shoot looters. You may then see a definitive change.... ...Animals.
