A Mob of More Than 600 Teens Laid Siege to a Florida Movie Theater

Apparently the Brooklyn, NY shopping center that was put “on tilt” by a horde of teenagers the day after Christmas wasn’t the only public place under attack this holiday season. On Christmas day, over 600 people, mostly teenagers, were involved in a vicious brawl at the Hollywood River City 14 movie theater in Jacksonville, Florida.

It all began when a group of approximately 30 African-American males stormed the theater because they apparently felt entitled to see the movie without paying. (source) 

A spokeswoman for the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office, Lauri-Ellen Smith, reported that an off-duty female officer was the only person working security at the time.


“The officer administered pepper spray to disperse the group, locked the doors and called for backup, following protocol,” Smith told reporters. “After the officer administered the pepper spray, upwards of 600 people moving throughout a parking lot about the size of a football field began fighting, disrupting and jumping on cars.” (source)

About 60 officers responded and the unruly crowd responded by attacking them, resulting in a free-for-all battle in the parking lot that took about an hour to get under control.  You can see the video here of the mob of young people.



Unlike the Brooklyn mall riot, at least a few arrests were made in the Florida mob scene.  However, only 5  of the 600+ people involved were arrested.


All five of the people arrested on the scene were charged with crimes related to fighting. Three of those arrested, including one minor, were charged with felonies. Two other juveniles, who have not been named by police, were charged with misdemeanors.

Tevyn Alonza Davis, 19, was charged with resisting arrest and breach of the peace. Jaquade Marquis Miller, 18, was charged with fighting and resisting arrest. Khalil Ahmad Bradley, 17, the only minor charged with a felony, was arrested for resisting arrest, refusal to disperse and breach of the peace.

Davis and Bradley each “took a fighting stance” when confronted by police and told to leave the area, according to arrest reports. Miller, too, “took an aggressive stance” when told by police to leave the parking lot. (source)

Vehicles in the parking lot were damaged, and the movie theater property also sustained damage, but miraculously, no one was seriously injured.

This is just another example of the generation of psychopaths that has been created by the entitlement mentality. These thugs believed that they should be exempt from paying for their movie theater tickets like other people, and become violent when they were thwarted.

Between flash mobs of animalistic teenagers and thugs roaming around assaulting random victims in the Knockout “game” the thin veneer of civilization is rapidly eroding, making downtown America seem more like the scene of some post-Apocalyptic movie than a first-world country. How did we get to the point at which it is unsafe to leave your house and go to the movies or the mall?

Meanwhile, the government is striving to disarm law-abiding citizens, leaving us no way to protect ourselves against a society of truly psychopathic young people who believe that they should have anything they want.  These kids have no respect for others, no sense of empathy, and  no moral compass to guide them. They are not like the rest of us when they get swept up in these mobs.  In these situations, the participants have devolved to such a lack of scruples that they behave like packs of wild animals hunting down prey. When faced with an enemy who is not guided by the same rules that decent human beings are, superior defensive power is your only option if you want to survive.

The most difficult part of preparedness for some people is the concept of defense.  Many of us, especially those without military backgrounds or law enforcement training, don’t want to consider harming another human being. But as our society continues to devolve, being ready to protect yourself and your family is one of the most vital aspects of a preparedness plan. All of the storable food in the world is of no use if you don’t live long enough to eat it or if you can’t defend it.

As a good friend of mine has been telling me for years, “Predator or prey, the choice is yours.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

What cause? Hasn't social unrest and outbreaks of mob violence been heretofore triggered by material want?

As a businessman back in my day.....I always thought that retail establishments should ALWAYS have a vestibule of sorts....and 'ante' room that not only would keep the inclement weather and cold air out of the store, but also serve as a deterrent to armed robbery or in this case....crazy mayhem.

Banks have these....where a person who may attempt to rob a back can not get out....he/she enters the lobby area where you may see an ATM machine....and the doors lock electronically...trapping them in a 'fish bowl' until the police arrive.

IMO, this started by stealing candy and soda at the local 7-11, but as you can see....it's getting pretty serious.


That....or grabbing the Remington 870 from under the counter and shooting it off into the ceiling.....that should get the little bastards' attention.   LOL:!

Lately on the radio here, I have been hearing a commercial for e-cigarettes with voiceover of some young woman who proclaims "you're not breaking the rules, you're re-writing them."  What gives anyone the right to re-write the rules they don't like??  That's pretty close to outright anarchy, and that has seen a resurgence in the past five years or so too.

The point is that more and more young people feel less and less constrained to follow any social norm, and within the black community we have entire generations that have been brought up not to appear "too white", up to and including how to read and write.  There are more cellphones than citizens in this country right now, and by and far I think the average "smart phone" is much smarter than the average smart phone user.  We celebrate single motherhood, irresponsible and absent fathers, drug use and immoral behavior of every description because we are all not supposed to be "judgmental" of any one for any thing.

What's going on is the slow but steady disintegration of the United States as we once knew it.

"The land of plenty" only takes care of illegal aliens, not American citizens.  If you're a destitute American you live under a bridge.  If you are a destitute illegal alien you live in Sec. 8 housing, get free medical, free college, and free food. :shrug:

I keep waiting for the national attention that should be paid to these "flash mobs" that are almost daily in one city or another.
Six hundred "out of control teens" and only five are arrested?

How much more wild and destructive do they have to get before the American people stop shrugging it off?

JACKSONVILLE, FL – A fight in the movie theater parking lot at the River City Marketplace led to five arrests.

Police arrested Tevyn Davis, 19; Jaquade Miller, 18; and Khalil Bradley, 17. The names of the other two suspects are being withheld due to their ages.

Investigators say this began when a group of teenagers tried to barge into the Hollywood River City 14 Theater without paying on Christmas night.

An estimated crowd of 600 people started to gather in the parking lot.

JSO spokeswoman Lauri-Ellen Smith told Action News an off-duty officer tried to subdue the crowd by using pepper spray and a melee erupted. The off-duty officer then called for backup and 30 officers responded to the scene.

JSO reports there is vehicle damage, but no injuries.

Davis faces misdemeanor charges of resisting an officer and breach of the peace.

Miller faces misdemeanor charges of affray and resisting an officer.

Bradley faces a felony charge of resisting an officer, a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct and refusal to disperse.

A female juvenile faces charges of public nuisance, refusal to disperse and resisting an officer.

The male juvenile faces a charge of resisting an officer.

Action News spoke with the manager of a nearby pizza parlor who said he had to lock his doors to keep people out.

Police set up a safe zone for parents to come pick up their children.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —
In a crowd of some 600 people at the River City Marketplace, a melee breaks out.

It started around 8:30pm Wednesday when a group of juveniles tried to rush into the Hollywood Theater at the Northside shopping complex without paying.

 "Unsupervised, unticketed young people,” said Laurie-Ellen Smith with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. 

 Smith says an officer working off-duty tried to break up the fight by using pepper spray, and a melee erupted.   At the same time, people started fighting outside the theater, and the group in the parking lot grew to approximately 600 people.

"A lot of the children unfortunately were not accompanied by an adult," said Conita Reed, who was at the theater with her kids when the fights started. "There was a lot of movement. Again, you could not enjoy the movie because children were everywhere."

Reed tells WOKV the Hollywood 14 Cinemas couldn't contain everyone.

"I was told by one of the employees of the theater that there were fights and that all of the children literally had to be escorted out of the lobby area into the front of the movie theater," said Reed.

We're told more than 60 JSO officers responded, working more than 90 minutes to separate the people and reuniting them with their parents.

 "There were people fighting and there were people who were not fighting. The officers were there to keep everyone safe, and sequester, and to separate", said Smith.

 We're told there were no serious injuries and no reports of gunshots.  Some cars were damaged because of people jumping on them.

By the time police got things under control, five people were arrested in total. 19-year-old Tevyn Davis was arrested on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. 18-year-old Jaquade Miller and 17-year-old Khalil Bradley were arrested on felony charges of resisting an officer with violence. Two others, a boy and a girl, were also arrested but because they are minors and were not charged with felonies their names are not being released.

WOKV spoke with the company who manages the River City Marketplace to find out if they will be making any changes to security procedures in the wake of the melee.  Ramco-Gershenson Corporate Communications Director Dawn Hendershot tells us there will be more security on site for the next few days in order to give shoppers a sense of security. They do not, however, think there is any ongoing threat.

“The Center’s been open for nearly ten years, and we have never had any security concerns,” she says.

She says while this security boost will be temporary, they are expecting a new JSO substation to be built in the plaza soon. Planning for the substation has no connection to the Wednesday night brawl, but she says it will give police even more resources to work with in the future.

[[ This is just another example of the generation of psychopaths that has been created by the entitlement mentality. These thugs believed that they should be exempt from paying for their movie theater tickets like other people, and become violent when they were thwarted. ]]

Next up on the entitlement train:
ObamaMovies !!
All aboard !!

[[ How did we get to the point at which it is unsafe to leave your house and go to the movies or the mall? ]]

We got that way when America's primary "ethnic group" stopped believing in itself _as_ the nation's primary ethnic group, stopped believing in and protecting its future within this nation, and surrendered to the ridiculous notion that it should feel guilty and cower before other ethnic groups that wished to displace it and began making demands of "equality". It's that simple.

If you disagree with what I just wrote above, read carefully this next quote from the article:
[[ These kids have no respect for others, no sense of empathy, and  no moral compass to guide them. They are not like the rest of us when they get swept up in these mobs.  In these situations, the participants have devolved to such a lack of scruples that they behave like packs of wild animals hunting down prey. ]]

Thomas Jefferson was prescient about many things, but his dream of egalitarianism, as expressed in the Declaration, was little more than fantasy.

"Egalitarianism" is as much a dead end street for humanity (at least for the ethnic group that built Western Europe and later on, the U.S.A.) as was communism.

If things keep going the way they're going, how long before the Euro-Americans end up in this land, as the Afrikaners have in South Africa?
