I keep waiting for a "flash mob" to attack occupy philly folks. They are probably they upset they aren't getting any attention.

Glad to see that they're finally getting on top of this. At this point, it seems as if the teens think that they're above the law. Curfew was enacted because of this foolishness, in the frist place.
Hats of to the Police Dept for catching this one before it could balloon out of control. If we can keep catching these things before they become big it will go a long way from thwarting future "flash mobs" from even starting. Great job!
Maybe this is a case of SEPTA working together with the cops to block these things from getting out of control in the first place.
Septa sees a bunch of rowdy kids getting off the subway downtown.. alerts police... flash riot averted. Good deal!

It's also gotten very predictable - warmer than usual weather & riot mabs go hand in hand, it seems. If I've made that connection, I really hope the cops have too and are more vigilant when we have an unusually warm day.
