Action taken after 900 teens storm theater to see ’50 Shades of Grey’
A mall in Ocoee, Florida, has been forced to impose a curfew after as many as 900 black teenagers, mostly girls, stormed a theater inside the mall so they could see the sexual bondage-themed film, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” on Valentine’s Day.
According to WKMG-TV in Florida, hundreds of middle- and high-school students rushed the AMC Theater at the West Oaks Mall after not being allowed into the R-rated movie.
Some reports indicate the riot was organized on social media weeks in advance.
Now unsupervised teenagers will no longer be allowed to be present at the mall in the evenings. The new rule is part of an effort to prevent the kinds of violent outbreaks that led movie-goers on Saturday night to frantically call 9-1-1, claiming they feared for their safety.
Florida’s Ocala Post interviewed several owners of businesses inside the mall after the incident.
“All of the business owners, who do not want their names used, have accused the mall of not taking proper measures for this type of situation to ensure the safety of employees and shoppers,” the Post reported. “According to business owners, they believe management is afraid of being labeled racist because it is only black teenagers that are causing the trouble. Store owners said it is not about race, but about right and wrong.”
One business owner said, “Something needs to be done before one of these teens gets killed, or the teens kill an innocent person. Not to mention this type of behavior is causing us to lose revenue. And the thing that really irritates me is that mall management and the media is not calling the situation what it really is.”
Experts say the black mob violence and disorder is part of a nationwide pattern.
Colin Flaherty, author of “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” said it’s just the latest example of mob violence hitting shopping malls all around the country, and the chaos is overwhelmingly perpetuated by black teenagers.
According to Flaherty, “This is similar to what happened in Jacksonville in Christmas 2013: 750 black people rushed a theater, then created havoc and violence in and out of the theater. The same kind of violence occurred in a mall in Salisbury, Maryland, not long ago. And there are so many more cases that I’ve documented again and again.”
“This kind of violence is why you see so many ‘struggling’ malls and why people are withdrawing from public spaces. Ordinary families simply don’t feel safe. And they probably shouldn’t feel safe, because the police seem more interested in shoving incidents like this under the rug than stopping them.”
