There was a well known neighborhood near a base I was stationed, that did this sort of thing all the time. When a car drove through, they would throw something at the car, or make some kind of commotion. If the driver stopped, it was exactly like a feeding frenzy you would see on Wild Kingdom or any nature show.
They would pour out of their houses like ants, beat the driver and steal everything on the person and in the car. It was routine. I don't think they cared what color you were. They were just about 'getting stuff'. Like real life animals.
They warned us about it on base and kept us informed about the area. The local paper got into a big controversy because they refused under any circumstances to print anything about it, even though it was happening serveral times a week. Eventually even a couple of reporters, at the very same paper, got caught by in the trap in this neighborhood. They were robbed and and beaten, and put in hospital. Even after that, the paper still refused to print a word about this neighborhood. The cops did nothing to stop it.
I wonder still today, how many beatings, rapes, robberies, and even deaths this paper is responsible for, by refusing to warn people or alert the public to what was going on. All for some idiotically stupid idea of 'political correctness'. Blind fools, every one of them.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
