Surveillance Video Shows Looting Inside Mondawmin Mall

Amy Yensi, CBS Baltimore, April 28, 2015

We’ve seen plenty of images at this point of looters leaving stores with stolen items. Now one business owner is sharing shocking video of what they did inside his store.

A nonstop rush of looters has a free-for-all inside the Sports Mart in Mondawmin Mall.

“Look at him. He’s got jackets, everything.”

Cameras catch groups of young men and women barging into the sporting goods store, scooping up anything in sight and completely ransacking the place.

The owners helplessly watched for hours Monday, as they say hundreds of looters ran through, snatching sneakers, hats and clothing right off the racks.

“We have a webcam and it showed hundreds of people in here. It was like Macy’s Day Parade,” said Harvey Levy, Sports Mart president.

Leaving the 35-year-old family-owned business in shambles and a feeling of distrust for its owners.

“We’re a community-based store, and the community took care of us last night. They wiped us out,” said Brian Levy.

Piles of empty boxes and sneakers without pairs line the sprawling stock room.

Eleven people work at that store and are now out of a job. The owner says he’s not sure if he’ll even reopen.

  • Steal some shoes, drive a mall shoe store out of business. Do it for Freddie Gray. That’s black power.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      One white policeman harms one black citizen, so hundreds of black delinquents and gang members harass a city for weeks. This is a disproportionate to police misconduct.

      • Michigan Patriot

        Great biological observation !

  • dd121

    The black politicians have to beg businesses to come into the black areas then don’t guard them during riots. Why would any business go back?

    • TheCogitator

      Why would they have ever gone there in the first place?

      • thegodsofeden

        Especially without the ability to protect their livelihood through armed resistance.

      • dd121

        Because the business owners have a big portion of liberal white guilt heaped on them by the local politicians.

        • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

          Fortunately, there is on phenomenon that can overcome white guilt:

          Red ink.

          If the increased frequency with which we’ve recently seen black disturbances continues or increases, and businesses are financially damaged, eventually the guilt will seem less overwhelming. #bottomlinesmatter

  • Chip Carver

    Didn’t Baltimore’s esteemed mayor say for the police to stand down and let the rioters go wild because “…it’s only property,”?

    • TheMaskedUnit

      Maybe it was ” … it’s not my property.”

    • Katherine McChesney

      I thought she said “give them room to destroy”.

      • AmericanRemnant

        Actually Katherine that statement is good grounds for a class action suit against the city which ostensibly is there to protect individuals and commerce. And the insurance companies got an out since these occurrences would be considered riots in lieu of the covered isolated vandalism.

        • Katherine McChesney

          I hope they sue the pants off them and make a mockery of the Mayor.

      • Kenner

        She said both. ‘It’s only property’ is what she allegedly told police.

    • Deacon Blue

      And none of it the mayor’s. I am sure she would feel differently if her fellow
      darkies rolled up on the her house and firebombed it. But hey, “it’s only property!”
      right?

  • james AZ

    Savage’s day on 365 days never have business with black area …….

  • TruthBeTold

    The people in the video look shell-shocked.

    Eleven people work at that store and are now out of a job. The owner says he’s not sure if he’ll even reopen.

    CRIME CAUSES POVERTY AND BLACKS CAUSE BOTH.

    • 1Forced_Registration

      While the markup on that stuff is fairly high, it isn’t so high that you necessarily have funds to repair everything and replace inventory. If insurance doesn’t cover their losses, its quite likely to result in the owner having to take out another loan on their home just to get the money to even be able to reopen. Would you risk your home on that not happening again in Baltimore? I wouldn’t!

      • AmericanRemnant

        I certainly wouldn’t reopen, screw em. Where were all the mall cops? Or is mall security confined to children running or eating outside the food court? But I’m sure with all those culturally enriched face’s on camera it’s just a matter of tracking them down since they were just bored and they’ll be able to make restitution.

        • Michigan Patriot

          There are no major food chain supermarkets left in Deeetroit; want to make a guess why ? The liberal politicians & natives complain about this problem that they caused but can’t figure out the result; cause & effect is way beyond their negative I.Q. !

          • AmericanRemnant

            I’ve been to Detroit since cultural enrichment took hold and it was indeed a vibrant environment. It made Beirut look appealing.

      • TruthBeTold

        I hope the owners can salvage what they can but they should get out and I suspect they will.

        • Michigan Patriot

          It is tough to salvage what is left by savages.

      • thegodsofeden

        File bankruptcy, both business and personal, and leave the stinking cesspool behind.

    So, Baltimore declares itself officially finished.
    It was inevitable.

    • Donald

      OT: I’m po’d with the MLB for playing the Orioles game to an empty stadium.

      Maybe, Baltimore doesn’t deserve a major league team.

      • TheMaskedUnit

        Atlanta is moving out of black Atlanta and into the white north side of town.

        Maybe the whole futile attempt to renovate black America with sport stadiums will mercifully end now.

        • Katherine McChesney

          Do you mean the Atlanta Braves?

          • TheMaskedUnit

            Yep. Maybe it will spread.

        • listenupbub

          I never understood this move. I have read on the internet that the new stadium will be in a historically poor and black area, and then a coworker told me it is in the nice area. What is it really like?

          • TheMaskedUnit

            The new stadium will be well fortified. Normally every new stadium, arena, hockey rink, etc. is put in the worst of the worst to revitalize the minority community. Not this time.

            I’m not sure about Candlestick. I was only in SF one time and the liberals don’t tolerate any diversity anywhere near to them.

            Tampa could have put their stadium on I-4 between Orlando and Tampa but they chose the St Pete ghetto.

            The amazing thing is that the Atlanta decision was made before Camden yard was held hostage.

        • John Smith

          The Tribe member who owned part of the Hawks expressed that view and got forced out for it.

      • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

        As a lifelong O’s fan, I have a few words in reply to that sentiment. But if I post them here, the moderator will have to delete them.

        N.F.L Colts bolted out of town years ago in the dead of night to Indy . A head of the curve / riot.

        • Speedy Steve

          Memorial Stadium was in the most simian neighborhood. Camden Yards is in the old McCormick spice factory.

  • RaySist27

    The South had it right when they refused service to blacks. The Woolsworth sit-ins were the beginning and ultimately led to the looting. Blacks have no business in our schools, stores, neighborhoods, or country.

    • Michigan Patriot

      Do you say this with experience of knowledge or just guessing ?

  • dale hale

    The book store was untouched. The Welfare office is still intact also.

  • Evette Coutier

    Not a single pair of work boots were taken.

    • Michigan Patriot

      Go figure ?

  • Jason Lewis

    Now that they don’t have to purchase those items they can concentrate their money towards their education.

    • Michigan Patriot

      The only ” higher ” education they seek is the cheapest ,illegal drug dealer down the street. I learned this information from my Afro-Studies courses at college. I received straight A ‘s to inflate my GPA.

    Someone send this video to Jane Goodall, she might have some ideas on how to prevent these types of attacks.

    Brian Levy said he recognizes many of the looters as regular customers, and he’ll be uncomfortable serving them if he reopens.

      I hope Brian & his family stopped being ” liberals ” after this tutorial from ” the community “.

    Nobody stereotype, don’t stereotype, don’t stereotype, don’t stereotype, don’t stereotype…

    Oh, comeon! It’s a bunch of black people stealing shoes!

      Black, yes; people not so sure.

    Owner: “I run a sneaker business in a black area in one of the most corrupt cities in America; what could possibly go wrong?”

  • Ed

    Why didn’t these owners have guns?

    • AFlaVet

      They’re in a liberal unicorn kumquat paradise. Fairyland…no guns. So..the Paki / Indian shop owners who got torched…couldn’t go Korean on them like they did in LA. See…they haven’t figured that out yet…that in a black run city…..you can’t defend yourself from a black criminal or thug. That’s the insanity of a state like Maryland. Not only that…but they found out that because it was negroe run city…the cops…no matter what color you were…would just stand by in orders from a negro mayor…and stand down…and not fire a shot. Tell ya what…I’m willing to concede this…..it’s the blacks that need guns…the most…to fend off…blacks.

  • AFlaVet

    Now I ask….who lives here? There are literally thousands of jobs available…painters, carpenters, plumbers, electricians…handymen…they want to talk about “unemployment”…one would think that the negro run city council would organize a…”cleanup baltimore…rebuild Baltimore” …let’s make Baltimore better? Not a chance…just keep shuckin and jivin….the Mayor will tell you that there are no economic opportunities in a city run by …negroes. Pathetic…and this is all over the ghettoes in the US.

    • AmericanRemnant

      Those brownstones were once a beautiful example of middle class American architecture and construction. Now they exemplify America’s engineered decline. And you can bet the current occupants haven’t lifted one finger to even pull a weed, let alone repair or maintain anything. The entitlement and perpetual childhood mentality personified.

      • Speedy Steve

        Technically, these were houses for the working class employees of Baltimore’s many factories. The residents may have been Polish, or Quebecois.

    Take the money and run for Israel – less dangerous than Baltimore.

    • AmericanRemnant

      Open borders for Israel. Let enrichment come home to roost.

  • pea_brain_2012

    I saw the owner interviewed and he sail he will in fact reopen. Plus don’t blame those poor oppressed keeids.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    It’s not necessary to first see the video before knowing what “demographic” was involved…

  • Light from the East

    Search “Earthquake store”, you will realize this one seems way more serious than that, not even to mention similar things will happen again and again if they don’t disappear.

    Back in the 60s the owner of Glen Echo refused admission to Africans. When forced to integrate, he shuttered the park. The tawnies are still steamed about it.
