Curfew Considered After Massive Brawl in Downtown Greensboro

Lindsey Eaton, My Fox 8, July 1, 2013

A massive fight in downtown Greensboro Saturday night has some city leaders taking a hard look at bringing back the teen curfew.

Nearly 400 people were involved in the several fights that happened along Elm Street.

Greensboro police arrested 11 people ranging in age from 16 to 20-years-old. Officers had to use pepper spray and a stun gun to try to get the crowd under control. {snip}

Some officers suffered minor injuries following the fights. As soon as one fight stopped another started.

The security cameras outside of Syn and Sky nightclub caught many of the brawls. The footage shows two groups of teens walking toward each other on Elm Street and several people running away into the streets.

Mike Carter is the owner of Syn and Sky and thinks itโ€™s about time to reenact the 11 p.m. curfew that was enforced in 2011.

โ€œIt makes no sense for teenagers to be out roaming around on a Friday or Saturday night, or any night for that matter,โ€ Carter said.

  • Creepy as a cracker!

    Just one more reason why blacks should be avoided whenever possible!

    • candide

      Agree!

      • blacks need to learn “the importance of being earnest”.

    • JohnEngelman

      Don’t tell that to the National Review.

    • sbuffalonative

      Funny how summer heat affects blacks but not whites. It must have something to do with the legacy of slavery or racism or something.

  • candide

    Put them in concentration camps!

    • The__Bobster

      I prefer sinking boats heading toward Africa.

      • tickyul

        The USA is a sinking boat…….we will NEVER truly deal with the Urban American “problem”.

    • Cactus Jack

      Shoot them grave yard dead…

    • You guys are not looking at the ROOT of the problem. before you deport the foreigners, you have to first deal with the likes of Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Diane Feinstein, and Janet Napolitano.
      Otherwise, you’ll merely have more “challenges” next year.

      • Erasmus

        True. Our “elites” continue to enable their dysfunctional behavior.

    • JohnEngelman

      I prefer hard labor camps, where work is enforced by the whip. It is the only way to get any value out of them.

      • David Ashton

        Dachau, Mauthausen, Buchenwald as models, Herr Engelman?

        • JohnEngelman

          Those were death camps devoted to exterminating the most superior racial group in existence.

          My model is Soviet labor camps.

    • Zoos are better.

      • Spartacus

        I don’t think anyone would pay money to come see these things…

        • The__Bobster

          Why not? They can be highly entertaining when properly caged.

          • Spartacus

            Nah, they can’t do any of the good tricks, like seals or dogs can, they’re too complicated for them.

    • cancerous bananna

      Build more prisons and enforce the laws

  • Puggg

    Wow. Put another law on the books that blacks won’t obey and will be too “racist” to enforce. That’ll solve everything.

  • ncpride

    I live in NC, watch the local news every single morning, and I have not heard a word about this. Not one word. As per usual, I have to find these things out on AmRen, or some other non PC news site. Thank goodness for alternative news sources.

    • Romulus

      You got it brother!

      • ncpride

        That would be sister… : )

        • Romulus

          Thanks, I’ll remember that.

        • sbuffalonative

          You Go Girl! (whatever that means).

    • Sick of it

      To get any idea of what’s going on, I have to skim through quite a few online news services/aggregators. American news today is apparently just another arm of the Federal government, doing its level best to treat us like mushrooms.

    • JackKrak

      It only would have been big local news if a white policeman had forgotten to say please and thank you while getting beaten by the mob.

  • The__Bobster

    Nearly 400 people were involved in the several fights that happened along Elm Street.
    _________

    There have been war battles that involved fewer people.

  • The__Bobster

    Now they are “teens”. A few months back, they were “yoofs”.

    • Erasmus

      And I’ll bet 90% were honor students… ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Non Humans

        and Future Scientists..

        • newscomments70

          They should show only their baby pictures like they do with Trayvon.

        • Jefferson

          I bet all of the yoofs involved in that massive brawl are either F or D average students.

  • Luca

    The kid at the end is right. The 99% of blacks who are savage, primitive, violent, low IQ, criminals are ruining it for the other 1%.

  • Nearly 400 people were involved in the several fights that happened along Elm Street.

    Elm Street, huh?
    You know, it’s tempting to make a joke, buuuut I think I’ll pass.

  • Rusty Shackelford

    Ahh…those “teens” again…we’ve got youths, teens, older teens, and I’m sure term “elderly teen” will be introduced at some point.

    Also note that they disabled the comments for this story.

    • Tinfoil A22hat

      According to the Feds there are also “adult children”………

      • Rusty Shackelford

        For sure. They’re called elected officials.

    • Erasmus

      ….and I’m sure term “elderly teen” will be introduced at some point.

      That will cover the 30 to 60 year olds.

  • There is only one way to stop behavior like this …. sundown laws.

  • dave

    how about just enforce a curfew for blacks and not punish whites. why should whites and other races suffer for the actions of many blacks who cant act civilized. this is racism towards whites and others. its very simple to fix,just keep the blacks off the streets after 8 and let the whites enjoy the holiday without being attacked. its always a few who spoil the fun for everyone. in this case its the blacks again who cant act like humans.

    • Non Humans

      “In this case its the blacks again who cant act like humans.”
      .
      You cannot expect them to act like something that they are not.

    • MBlanc46

      It will take a while to get there, but what you’re talking about should be a long-term goal.

  • Spartacus

    Were any white people hurt ? If not, I don’t care.

    • tickyul

      This type of barbaric behavior effect a lot more than just the Yutes involved.

  • OhWow

    First they were teens, then they were youths, then they were “random attacks”, now they are “high schoolers”. Blacks enjoy hiding under the giant rock called the liberal media the same way it allows worms to hide.

    Is it really going to kill you to just finally say “a bunch of what appeared to be almost exclusively black people”? There is a 1,000 lb gorilla in the room breathing heavy and the liberal media is whistling looking the other way. Just say it. We know.

    • cancerous bananna

      Truth be racizz sez the ghost of st. Trayvon marr-ennn

  • The Final Solution

    Since when does 400 people attacking each other constitute a ‘fight’? A riot at best but more like a war with a full enemy division. Things are getting grim.

    • bubo

      It’s media speak. Same way they call a 10 on 1 beating a “brawl.” They downplay black violence and aggression by using words that soften the situation.

    • I believe only 400 is a light battalion; three companies.

  • A Freespeechzone

    One of these days, unruly and violent yooths will attempt to attack the wrong person or persons–and learn how the Second Amendment and Self Defense works. There will be some dead yooths.

    More and more people will not allow themselves to be victims, regardless of threatened ramifications–with NO remorse or apologies.

    • Romulus

      My sentiments exactly!!

    • MBlanc46

      And wind up like George Zimmerman.

  • John Smith

    Until the U.S. government starts fostering an environment to rebuild nuclear families in black communities with those traditional values the liberals hate so much, this is going to continue.

    • WR_the_realist

      Governments are real good at breaking down families but are not good at building them back up.

      • John Smith

        Except in Russia right now where Russian legislators passed legislation that Putin signed into law making it a crime for adults to indoctrinate children into homosexuality.

        You know it amazes me that a nation in which one could lose their career, have all of the wealth confiscated, be imprisoned in a hard labor camp and their children put in a state run orphanage, and possibly even be murdered simply for NOT being an atheist before just 1991 now has a population that is 50% Christian, 25% agnostic, and only 13% atheist.

        That has got to be the biggest turn around in modern times!

        Russia is watching America erode by wasting so much time and energy on the acceptance of issues that divide and produce no economic or national homogeneity and are rejecting what they see.

        The trend right now in Russia is toward building up the nation’s nuclear families and focusing them on a challenging education curriculum.

        U.S. children, on the other hand, are going to be exposed to an even greater watered down curriculum diluted with a whole lot of divisive content that promotes division, sexual immorality, and addiction. U.S. children are being pushed to adopt behaviors and told to explore deviations the vast majority of them would never have on their own.

        By the time the children of both nations mature the U.S. children will be confused/immoral/addicted at higher rates, in a much worse economy, and with student loans to pay off for substandard degrees rife with divisive content making many of them globally uncompetitive.

        IF Russia’s successful (and that’s only if) in implementing their plan, it is expected that the next generation of Russian children will be enculturated with traditional family values and the right education to fit into the advancing work place.

        Two nations with large populations moving in exactly the opposite direction.

    • IstvanIN

      Wasn’t that the (alleged) cause of their low IQ? Because they eat paint chips?

        Giving Pb orally is not the proper way to administer it to calm people down.

  • gemjunior

    Oh please, those ubiquitous ‘teens’ again. Actually they are boons on the loose who need to be locked up for the good of everyone else. This is very typical of them. They can always be counted on to destroy any peace and civility anywhere. There is little else that they can be counted on for but violence and mayhem are their specialty.

  • Erasmus

    How many of these flash mob participants have been using their free Obama “sail foams” to find out where the latest rumble is happening?

  • Sick of it

    Patriots would be the targets, sadly.

  • quick_quip

    People do not accept this. Relentless propaganda by the owners of media, hollyweird and international banksters are a unified front on this assault.

    I appreciate the link, thank you!

  • Tinfoil A22hat

    I don’t care who is superior to whom. I just want to be with people like me and not be forced to associate with people not like me. I am fed up with being told that I am evil and should be ashamed of myself because I am a white, heterosexual male. I am fed up with being castigated for pointing out the beyond poor behavior of others, and I am not sorry for scientific evidence that there are real, physiological, psychological, and behavioral differences between races.

    There is no reason different people can’t be civil toward one another, but that is a two-way street. I am tired of the lies and absurd twisting of truth that tells me I cannot stand up for myself and others like me to save what is left of our race and culture. As far as controlling others, f— that. Let them go tend to their own, and stop expecting me and mine to take care of theirs to the detriment and demise of us all.

  • Creepy as a cracker!

    Like I said, blacks should be avoidable whenever possible. I realize that they can not always be avoided. Do not go into black areas, do not frequent businesses likely to have a large black clientele, If there is a large group on the sidewalk then cross the street to avoid them. I carry a handgun just about everywhere I go. I will do everything in my power to not be a victim. I follow my own advice but if I do find myself in a precarious situation at least I will defend myself and my family to the best of my ability. I am in my mid-fifties and even though I try to keep in shape, I am in no condition to throw down with a band of blacks. With that said, I will fight to my death rather then stand and be slaughtered.

    Thanks for the link. Bookmarked and added to my diversity folder.

  • Luca

    It is common to use sarcasm, exaggeration and humor to make a point. Blacks and Liberals do it all the time.

    If your figures are correct then why did 95% of blacks vote for a liberal Marxist? You have to have a low IQ or some other pathology to vote for such an phony.

    • David Ashton

      Engelman voted for him, an

    • newscomments70

      I don’t think Obama is a liberal. He supports policies that will exterminate the white race and ignore black on white crime. A true liberal cannot support genocide.

      • Luca

        Actually a racial Neo-Marxist/socialist. But Liberal is an all encompassing term.

  • evilsandmich

    Take them about thirty minutes to enslave their less well-off, distant counsins. Since they would be living the high-life over there as a priviledged class, maybe it can be used as a selling point.

  • newscomments70

    If we send them to Africa, liberal Sweden and Germany will “rescue” the oppressed American blacks and let them live in Europe. Where ever we send them, we should sterilize them. That way their legacy of horror will end. And by the way, you should send your congressman the horrifying photos.

    • Creepy as a cracker!

      I believe that all blacks should be sterilized at birth. That is a humane way to rid this planet of its waste. Concentration camps and violent genocide are not the way to go.

  • newscomments70

    Sterilize them and send them back to Africa. I want my country back. No “white homeland”. I want it all back, we built this country.

  • John Smith

    Sometimes less really is more. How does one dismantle and then reform an out of control behemoth though? Right now, we’re just waiting for it to grow so large that it outgrows it’s food source (e.g. taxpayers).

  • John’s been around here long enough that he understands a few things.

    Where did you come up with that figure ?
