Memphis Teen Mob

Memphis teen mob of 125 attacked Kroger employees and a customer. Two Memphis teens were beaten by a mob of young thugs and the disturbing incident was caught on camera. One adult and two teenagers from Memphis, Tennessee were brutally attacked by a mob of youngsters taking part in the internet knockout game. The teen mob threw huge Halloween pumpkins at two of the victims who are Kroger employees and knocked them unconscious. 11 of the culprits were arrested, the other 114 are still on the loose.

Saturday night, two teens were almost killed in Memphis, Tennessee by a mob of wild thugs. The sad incident took place in the parking lot of the Kroger store at Highland St. and Poplar Ave. around 9:15 p.m., according to Examiner’s Regina Avalos.

The criminals’ first victim was a customer of the store who was walking to his car.

The 25-year-old man who did not wish to reveal his identity, told local media outlets that when he first saw about 100 to 125 African-American teens gathering at the parking lot he assumed that they were going to take part in a flash mob.

The individual who recently moved to Memphis, said that he was thrilled to see the event and pulled out his smartphone to film.

As he was filming one of the teens walked by and told him, “hey bro” and started hitting him.

The group of teenagers with too much time on their hands, were taking part in a trending internet game called “point them out, knock them out,” which was inspired by the “knockout game.”

The somewhat popular knockout game consists of knocking and beating up random strangers for the fun of it.

The man explained that he was viciously slapped, kicked and punched by the mob of teens.

The individual said that he was surprised that the mob thought they should slap him around because he is white. The victim did not disclose his ethnicity, but said that he is not Caucasian and added:

“Being new to the city, I don’t know where I can and where I can’t go. As I was starting to get my camera open, a guy popped around a car and said ‘hey bro’ and just started swinging at me. And I tried to put my hands up, another guy started rushing at me. I took off running backwards through the parking lot.”

The Kroger customer tried to escape from the beat down by running back to the store and hid in the fruit section where two male employees came to his aid.

The two teen Kroger workers were also brutalized by the mob. The young criminals assaulted the teens who are said to be 17 and 18 of age.

The pair was kicked by the violent teens who also smashed enormous Halloween pumpkins weighing over 20 pounds on their heads.

As the Memphis teens laid unconscious on the ground, the hooligans repeatedly kicked them in the head and continued to throw pumpkins at them. The teen workers were rescued by a store security who was able to chase the angry mob away.

The teens were taken to a nearby hospital and were rapidly released to their parents.

The first victim said the events were very troubling because the teens were laughing and mocking the two employees as they physically abused them in front of the store. The frustrated individual shared:

“It was nonsense violence. I can say that for sure. It seemed very unprovoked. They weren’t about anything, that it was fun for them. They were out having a good time. They were all smiling they were laughing.”

In a statement issued by the Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong, it was revealed that 10 teenagers and 1 adult who took part in the attack have been arrested.

A 16-year-old was charged with aggravated riot, and acting in concert: to wit aggravated assault. A 15-year-old and a 17-year-old have been charged with aggravated riot.

According to reports, the 15-year-old is the one in the lime green shirt who kicked the teens numerous times in the head.

The minor was recently arrested for illegally possessing a weapon and has been out of school for several months.

The boy’s mother was previously charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

This story has sparked a debate on race in America, some commentators want to hear what people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have to say on the matter. Voices with more moderate views believe that stupidity is to blame in this case.

The Memphis teens mob attack video can be seen below.

Update:

The name of one member of the Memphis teen mob who savagely attacked three people on Saturday has been released by the the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

A 19-year-old man named Raheem Richardson whose mug shot appears above was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and aggravated riot.

A total of 11 teens have been charged thus fur, but their names have not be released due to the fact that they are minors.

Among them a 16-year-old who was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated riot, and acting in concert to wit aggravated assault.

Eight teenagers, from 14 to 17 years old, were charged with aggravated riot. A 15-year-old boy was arrested Sunday and also charged with aggravated riot.

In a press conference held by Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong, he revealed that two sets of parents did the responsible thing and turned their teens in after learning that they assaulted three people.

Police officers have detained several other teens for questioning. Armstrong also explained that prior to the attack, the group of 125 kids entered CiCi’s Pizza restaurant, which shares its parking lot with Kroger.

While at the eatery, the group of thugs fought with the manager who was forced to close an hour ahead of time.

Meanwhile one of the teen victims’ father is speaking out about the incident. Mark Sauser, dad of the 17-year-old Kroger clerk who was beaten by the mob said that he wept after watching the video.

He explained that his wife has not been able to look at the clip. His teen son is an honors student who is working part time to save money for college.

Sauser said that while he son is white and the attackers are black, it has more to do than race.

He blamed the teens’ behavior on the lack of family structure, absent fathers and mothers with no authority.

He wants the teens who injured his son to be trialed as adults and pay for what they did.

The teen is already back in school and has plans to return to work soon.

    Assult? Riot? Looks more like attempted murder to me. If you think this is a game, lay down in the floor and let me kick you in the head for a while and see how much of game you think that is. Moderate views who think “stupidity” is to blame are the stupid ones. Stupidity will cover up a lot of mistakes, this was no mistake.

  2. Sam says:

    so where are all the jesse jacksons and al sharptons at now?? where’s the black community at now?? what’s that?? I can’t hear you over all the hypocrosy and racism.

  3. kathy says:

    Please don’t forget to include Houston’s Quanelle X in with Sharpton and Jackson. He’s become a race card player and absolutely only see’s one side of the coin in race problems.

  4. RAndy says:

    Where is Al and Jessie??? Where is Obama and Eric? Lets get some justice for these folks as well.

  5. Larry says:

    In this video you can see the next waive of individuals who will wind up with life in prison or dead by some violent method because they have sense of purpose other than criminal activity. This sort of activity done to the wrong person or persons will most likely lead to a firearm being used against these people…who will be screaming then….

  6. Lester Sardoma says:

    Why do you ask where are the black communities now? You should know they are all out committing some type of crime. Seem that is all they have learned how to do.

  7. Josh says:

    UGGHHH Can I PLEASE carry my side arm on me at all times now? Do a psych test on me and look at my criminal history. Do anything you need to ensure I won’t be one of these morons and actually be able to protect myself.

  8. Josh says:

    Also, I’m very proud of the parents who turned their children in to the authorities. I’d do it in a heartbeat. After I beat the hell out of him of course.

  9. Centurion says:

    Back in the day. It wasn’t unusual for people to riot. Over; jobs, wages, war, unfair living conditions, unfair labor conditions. Oh, and did I mention,,, they were whites! Ignorance, poverty, hunger, abuse. Are the right conditions to incite! Who remembers Haymarket, Chicago, the South! Yes, mob violence was the only way to action!
    So, today a race of people are committing unlawful acts to garner attention from the establishment. To convey, scream, for help! No, not a handout but, a way to succeed in a country that only provides opportunity to those. Wth attributes that allow them to excel in, sports, music, film or, crime! Why? Because of the lack of support from the business community! If you want to stop these incidents, help the AFAM community through, education, training, opportunity! The help was there in the 1930s for the whites! And, they weren’t overcoming slavery!

    The Fed’s act like our objective protectors. It is a lie. They have made this un-balanced social mixture through all the housing and school “equalization” programs. Now as we try to deal with it locally, they try to make it look like we and our police are at fault. Now they want to make the police “reflect the population”. They judge us as if we asked for any of this. If there is a race war, it will be fueled by the government and the news media. By the way has anyone heard about the Ferguson police officer having had his eye knocked out in the fight with the “innocent, unarmed black boy?”. The news here has said absolutely nothing about it. Think about it. If you had your eye knocked out in a scuffle and you had a gun in your hand, would you really not shoot? Welcome to our world Memphis.

  11. Jeff says:

    What disturbs me, (well, among other things), is how people who say this is racist, are treated more harshly than the victims by the press and public. If the roles were reversed, of course it would be racist, it would be a national tragedy, with the political parties of MSNBC, CNN and Fox covering how ALL “White” Americans are at fault. Those of you wondering where Sharpton, Jackson, and others “leaders” are, should know that they don’t mind stuff like this, they don’t follow a moral compass, they follow the news lights.

  12. Oneworld321 says:

    Yes, another Forum should do. Not!!!
    Note: As long as the victims are white and perps black, you will never see Obama, Holder or Sharpton criticize these vicious racial assaults.

    Over the past six years, there have been thousands of innocent white folks attacked by black perps through mob attacks, wilding and knockout game across the country.
    Holder calls Americans cowards but he’s the one who refuses to talk about America’s biggest problem often hidden by the media- black on white violence.

  13. dave a says:

    where is Obama on this, Oh He is playing golf again, This is a disgrace! Pure and simple. Time for all legal owners to CCW.

  14. Gary Goop says:

    When this type of thing happens its blacks 80% of the time.
    Maybe all the white people should use this as an excuse to start a riot and loot all the stores. Whites should disrupt the whole community and shoot guns in the air, fight with cops trying to maintain order, and get a couple “white power” leaders to represent them in the media.
    White people should not be afraid to call out the blacks on this. Media should not be so biased and afraid to call it what it is.
    Blacks should not be mad when they are called animals or worse if thats the way they want to act.
    I wonder how the story would read if one of these innocent victims pulled a gun and killed 5 or 6 before he got beat down. Guaranteed the “black power” leaders would be there leading the charge.
    THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR; Where you came from, how you grew up, past mistakes of our country, you had no Daddy….NONE!!!
    There should be no leniency for these children and all 125 should get serious punishment.
    Lets hope the judge puts them away for a long time.

  15. Valeria says:

    I’m a white female who was a victim of a knockout game by two black teenagers. So what, if they’d been white it’d have been fine but now it’s racist? I can’t speak out against violence in a way that’s probably true? Some days I really hate people…

    Isa 3:5
    And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable….Isa 3:12
    As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
    Isa 3:13

    The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people.
    His servant,Peter
