CHICAGO (CBS) – A mob of more than 20 teenagers
descended on a trendy Wicker Park shop on Saturday and made off with
more than $3,000 worth of jeans.


CBS 2′s Derrick Blakley reports the incident was caught on store
surveillance cameras, and the owner posted the video on YouTube.


Luke Cho said he hopes the images help police find the robbers, or
maybe even shame the parents of the teens enough that they’ll turn the
kids in.


From the moment the teens started flooding in the door at Mildblend
Supply Co. on Milwaukee Avenue around 6:40 p.m. Saturday, Cho knew
something wasn’t right.



“You see a group a group of teenagers walking in – or marching in –
one-by-one. As you can see, it looks like it’s some kind of procession,”
Cho said while reviewing the surveillance video on Sunday.


To Cho, it looked like a flash mob was about to rob the store, so he immediately locked the door.


“At least I think I kind of maybe stopped the flow a little bit, but I
quickly realized something bad’s about to happen, and I alerted my
staff to call 911,” Cho said.

    Business owners needs to arm themselves with "less lethal" 12-gauge ammo and pop a few of these criminals with high-velocity bean bags.

    We can all thank Obama's redistribute the wealth for this. These flash mobs are a growing crisis becoming more frequent. This is probably just the tip of the iceberg to what is to come under the Obama administration. God help us all.

    Isn't Obama's "take from the rich, and justify it by citing the poor", a larger version of what happened to the store? Did their "free stuff" inspire then to get a job? Buy a Volt? Or just create a group mentality of it was "justified"? Seriously, IF we are going to live with Obama's mentality, then the mob did nothing wrong, except collect on the "roads they built".

    The 2nd amendment would be a very useful deterrent against this type of crime and many others being committed against people who have done absolutely nothing to be attacked! Chicago is only gun friendly for criminals not law abiding citizens, this only encourages this type of behavior and it will continue to escalate until the people begin taking a unified stand behind the Constitution and the rights endowed by God to all law abiding citizens within our nation!

    Maybe it was because they look like the kids the WH inhabitant might have had. the store owners need to have an interior lockdown and keep these thugs inside until the cops come.

    Sure....you can try to justify open thievery by calling it something else. BTW, I've never seen anyone forced to shop at WalMart, and neither have you.
    People like you are the problem in the Obamanation.
