Video of Mall Riot Shows Punches, Unruly Crowd

Kris Betts, KVUE (Austin), October 28, 2013

The video from the air tells the tale: A crowd of people outside Highland Mall Saturday night refusing to the leave the scene. They refused even as an Austin Police Department helicopter followed from above, and as many as 30 officers reacted on the ground.

According to police some people in the crowd of 200 even started throwing rocks at officers. From above punches were captured on camera.

Around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, a crowd of more than 200 people became confrontational outside the House of Torment haunted attraction.

Police say people were throwing rocks and ignoring officers’ commands to leave. They also reportedly refused to back away from police who were dealing with fights. Those brawls spanned from Highland Mall Boulevard around the parking lot to Airport Boulevard.


Austin-Travis County EMS treated a total of seven people for assault and crowd-related injuries. One of those people was a police officer.


Five people were arrested, including four adults and one juvenile.

    If Obama had a lot of sons….

    I didn’t even bother watching the video, I know they’re groids. I couldn’t help but notice the last line in the article though: “Five people were arrested, including four adults and one juvenile.” . In the beginning, it says there were at least 200 rioters… And they only arrested 5 of them ? What the hell happened to the other 195 ?!?!?

    • Sick of it

      They were freed so they could commit crimes elsewhere.

    News Anchor: “The video says it all.”
    Yes, once we saw the mug shots of the arrested, the video did indeed say it all even if the reporters did not.

  • joesolargenius

    I watched the video and they were definitely obamas sons , looked just like him too except for the ears.

    Just a very small taste of what’s coming…….. this is what those nice white liberals will face when Bill DiBlasio becomes mayor in NYC (Many naïve whites are in for a very rude awakening).

    • Aggie95

      liberals have short memories and have to be reminded often that their polices while they may make them feel good about themselves they don’t really work and if a few of them have to die to remind others well …so be it

    • saxonsun

      We live a block from the mayor’s mansion in NYC. So we’ll be treated to this race traitor’s black family. His wife looks like a voodoo doll!

      • redfeathers

        And his son with the giant afro and stoned-looking eyes!

    • TeutonicKnight67

      As a native NYer and long time race realist I for one can’t WAIT for a DeBlasio Communist administration, complete with political commisars and the like. Let the fools suffer with the choice they make. Justice served.
      Unfortunately, Mayor Bloomberg has scored points for DeBolshevik with his statist nonsense..i.e. banning soda and the like.

      • redfeathers

        I like the Lhota campaign ad with clips of riots during the Dinkins administration. Like you, I hope white liberals get what’s coming to them. My area is relatively safe but I’m worried about what’s coming.

    Austin is a prosperous state capital without anything resembling East Coast black ghettos. In fact, if I remember, blacks are less than 10 percent of the population. They are well treated, in my experience. Many of them have white and Mexican girlfriends. Yet, here we have a chimpout at the House of Torture on Saturday night, a violent outburst for no good reason. I’ve said it before, but it only takes one black to make a crime wave, and it only takes a handful to make a riot. Everywhere they go, Africa goes with them.

      Austin is very liberal, and we all know Liberal Whites love living with their black proteges around them. Not.

    • capnmorgan5150

      8.1% according to Wiki. 68.3% White.

  • Sick of it

    I know why they didn’t expect this – Those haunted houses usually have crowds of white people who don’t cause any trouble at all.

  • SWPL2

    Thing is, the police are weak when it comes to PUBLIC aggression on the part of blacks v. the police. They are emboldened by the media response.

    Every event such as this means more race realists. The time will come in the not too distant future that a critical mass will be formed and we’ll be able to begin to get the Negroes contained and back under control.

    • Jefferson

      This took place in Texas and unlike liberal Minnesota, Texas is full of racially aware Whites. Obama won less than 25 percent of the White vote in Texas in the last presidential elections.

      • Paleoconn

        True. I read somewhere recently that Texas is 55% non-White. I was shocked.

        • Jefferson

          It is easy to become a racially aware White person when you do not live in a Whitopia and your state is turning into Ciudad De Juarez.

          because FedGov counts meztisos as “white”….when it’s convenient for them.

      • MBlanc46

        There are plenty of us here in Illinois, too. What we need is for there to be sufficient cover for us to raise our heads. Events such as this help to create that cover. I can’t speak for MN, but with the antics of the Somalis there, I’d bet that there are more and more race realists.

        • joesolargenius

          They belong to the Minnesota Majority.

      • joesolargenius

        Yes but Texas Whites are mostly armed individuals and East Texas alone supplies ten percent of all military volunteers , I know this because I was one of those volunteers during the Viet Nam Era.

  • Johnny Clay

    The video reminds me of the footage from helicopter gunships just before they unload on a bunch of Taliban. If only…..

  • Keep Honkin I’m Reloading

    Likely cause of the riot: When Bantus arrived to discover there was a line in order to gain entry.

  • Brian

    Hand out condoms to the blacks?

    • capnmorgan5150

      Condoms? Give them a book instead, they’ll get just as much use out of it.
