Holiday Nightmare: A Mob Of Crazed Teens Storm A Shopping Mall

By: Ami Angelowicz / December 28, 2013

I don’t know what your idea of a holiday nightmare is — maybe, wrestling your way through a Black Friday crowd at WalMart? — but mine is a mob of feral teenagers storming a mall. Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Brooklyn was forced to close its doors on Thursday when 400 teenagers showed up to put the mall “on tilt” (slang for looting the shopping center). The mall raid was allegedly all planned on social media. If the image of 400 teens beating up security guards and stealing items like candy and balloons isn’t enough to give you nightmares, the game of “Knockout,” possibly involving a gun, that broke out on the upper level will. There’s definitely a horror movie plot in here. [NY Post]
