The racially indeterminate flash-mobbing “youths” of yore have become the racially indeterminate “daring pack of kids” of today

Here is a race-blind news story from KATU in Oregon that could have been written by the race-blind conservative Andy (“We should not make a priori conclusions about how individual persons ought to be treated … based on race alone.”) McCarthy or by the anti-racist conservative Maggie (“I have always accepted cultural taboos on racist talk as a social good … I vote with Rich Lowry”) Gallagher:

Daring pack of kids raid SE Portland store

PORTLAND, Ore.—Police are hoping the public can help identify several kids who stormed a local gas station this past Saturday night and stole everything they could grab.

On the surveillance video, one person came into the Chevron convenience store on SE 92nd and Foster. Then a second person came in and pretty soon, a large group of kids was packed into the shop. Soon, they were stealing anything they could, from drinks to gum to candy

Carlos Garcia was working Saturday night at around 11:30 p.m. when the incident happened. He said there were 16 kids in the store. Garcia said the kids grabbed anything they could and shoved items into their pockets or simply carrying them in their hands and out the door.

“My first reaction was call police because I can’t do more,” he said. “I don’t want to hurt them—they’re kids. I called the police. They don’t stop they’re just picking picking as much as they can.”

As the kids were leaving the store, there was some sort of confrontation. It didn’t end there, though. The thieves came back to the parking lot, which is when Garcia said they started throwing things at him. Garcia promptly grabbed a baseball bat and scared the kids off.

Portland Police are investigating. Employees at the store are hoping someone can recognize the kids and call police.
