As if in an effort to answer the liberal question about why anyone would ever need a firearm with a 30-round magazine, packs of youths roamed Hollywood on Tuesday night assaulting pedestrians, vandalizing property, and robbing shops. The Associated Press details the criminal behavior here.
Los Angeles police were combing through cellphones and security footage Wednesday trying to identify dozens of young people who’d rampaged through Hollywood the night before, knocking down people, stealing their cellphones and grabbing souvenir trinkets from shops before a police sweep and arrests ensued.
Calls reporting packs of as many as 40 marauding young people began coming in at around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday from stores near the famed Hollywood and Vine intersection. The youths — possibly organized through social media — ran through the streets, stole T-shirts and other goods, including food, from businesses mainly on Hollywood Boulevard.
