    Mob attacks man in Memphis Kroger parking lot

    http://wreg.com/2014/09/07/teens-att...n-parking-lot/

    The white kid she is laughing about them attacking is a bagger who came to the aid of the first man being attacked. There was a similar incident in MO this past week with a man and his girlfriend attacked by 4-6 individuals.

    "...police pumpkins..."

    Hmm, where exactly do cops carry their pumpkins?

    That's a relative question.

    Perhaps on their pumpkin patch.

    A typo, akin to "plumpers" when plump kin was intended - fat chillums.

    Nawp. Gave up candy when it was called pogey-bait and geedunk. Now a fine dark chocolate and a Burgundy works much faster than liquor alone.

    "We are aware of it (it's a gang)..."

    The police and parents should be reviewing the video and arresting each and every teen who appears and/or can be identified and haul their parents downtown. Give them a police record, tried as an adult. End the view that this is just harmless exuberance.

    ...but, of course, they won't. Too much trouble. Parents aren't held accountable.

    The word "whitey" was not heard, so no hate crime.

    I don't think so .. see that one guy on the ground holding his hands against his head? Almost a perfect example of the actions of a guy dropping trying to protect himself. It is, in fact, the worst thing one can do ... gotta come out swinging (or get away)...otherwise you are basically asking for mercy on the part of the attackers which usually results in some stomping (and if a guy has steel toed shoes or boot, its not going to be a good outcome).

    Many many bar fights in my "I did whaaat?" period of my youth.

    the gang is called black fam mob or BFM. lovely pics of them here: http://www.westernjournalism.com/urg...caught-camera/

    Experts say that Memphis has become a hub for gang activity in the South, with more than 180 different gangs operating in Shelby County. One of those lesser gangs is reportedly known as the “fam mob.”

    The gang situation in Memphis is so bad that in 2012 22 members of the Memphis Police Department were arrested for being gang members.
