It is important in instances of criminal acts to be reasonable, responsible, and look at the large picture.  Important questions to consider if you find yourself in a similar event.

What is proper to do in a situation like the one in the video?

How should you respond?

What should you say and not say?

Whom should you contact?

What other actions could have been taken?

Is there a lesson in all of this to learn?

Emotions run strong in public discourse.  It is important for all parties to make good choices and follow the Golden Rule.  Also important is paying attention to these stories and following them through the legal system.  Getting all the facts and information is essential.

For example, a reporter for the Daily News reported, "A clothing store in a trendy Chicago neighborhood is one of the latest victims of a so-called flash mob robbery — when a large group storms into a shop to collectively rip off a retailer.  About 20 people entered the Mildblend Supply Co. in Wicker Park on Saturday afternoon, together grabbing more than $3,000 worth of high-priced denim jeans, according to police."

If you recognize anybody in this video, please call Chicago police at 312-744-8290.
Police report no. HV-404817.  If any of these are your children, grandchildren, or "friends", contact the police.  Please share this information on your social networking sites.  It is the right thing to do.
