Usually, flash mobs are harmless and fun. This one, caught on video, was neither of those. The teenagers threw produce and other grocery items and destroyed a $1500 anti-shoplifting device. It also caused panic in the store as frightened shoppers tried to figure out what was going on. Most of the participants look to be under the age of eighteen, and police suspect that they came from an out of control party that they had cause to break up earlier in the evening.

Does it seem that more and more out of control teenagers are indulging in this type of behavior in shopping malls, movie theaters and stores all over the country? Should these types of businesses start to restrict the number of young people in their store at any given time to maintain some sort of order?
