VIDEO: Milford mall fights close mall early


Major fights broke out at a Connecticut mall, forcing authorities to shutter the shopping center hours early, according to police and new reports.

The fights — involving “in excess of a couple hundred” people — broke out around 6 p.m. Thursday at the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford, where panicked shoppers streamed out three hours before its usual closing time, police told local outlet WTNH.

“This whole situation was crazy,” New Haven resident Monae Moye told the station. “They were fighting in the food court… All I saw was somebody, they swung and hit somebody in the head and that person just fell out. It was like they hit them so hard, it was so crazy.”

Milford Police tweeted that “several fights” prompted the closure and that multiple police departments responded to help contain the chaos.

“Because the safety and security of our shoppers, employees and retailers is our top priority, we worked closely and in full cooperation with Milford PD and other local law enforcement to clear mall common areas,” mall officials said in a statement issued to the station.

“We will continue to work diligently with local law enforcement to prevent future incidents. We are reviewing our policy regarding juvenile patrons and will make any necessary modifications needed to provide a safe and comfortable shopping environment.”

Despite speculation on social media that shots were fired, police spokesman Officer Mike DeVito told The Connecticut Post that wasn’t the case.

There was no immediate word of injuries or arrests.

The Westfarms Mall in Farmington also saw several fights break out Thursday night, leading to the arrest of two people, but the mall remained open, according to the report.

Thursday’s fracas occurred exactly a year after cops arrested one juvenile following several “disturbances and altercations” at the Milford mall, the outlet reported.

Pass a law outlawing fighting in malls. Then post a “no fighting allowed” sign on the door. That should work.

Or, just rename the place as an “employment center”.

So the kids used social media accounts to send out wilding invites to meet up at that mall.

Parents no longer give a shit what they’re kids are doing, where they’re going, what time it is, who they’re hanging around with.

You just come out of a coma? Hoodrats have been running wild for 50 years.

I can remember standing on a foot post around eleven o'clock at night, when about a dozen kids walked by.
Oldest one couldn't have been more than twelve. One look and you knew, they were going to work.
That was 30 years ago.

With the decline of Malls in the US, the ones still open are tending to be taken over by the bus crowd.  The one near me has only one anchor store left (had 3 originally) and has a huge arcade center where a Macy's used to be.  When that opened the Mall had the same type of fighting situation by the same type of "people."  The mall is mostly empty but it's very enriched now along with a police presence pretty much all the time.

I can’t disagree. Unfortunately, social media lends itself for all manners of usefulness and has made it so much easier to allow such events to occur.

That's how they can claim that the fight involved "hundreds of people." Hundreds of people fleeing for their lives.

Truth will out. There were no more than 10 total.

Teens rioting in the food court at the mall.

Robert A. Heinlein predicted the recent riots in "Starship Troopers," 1959.
"Law-abiding people," Dubois had told us, "hardly dared go into a public park at night. To do so was to risk attack by wolf packs of children, armed with chains, knives, homemade guns, bludgeons... to be hurt at least, robbed most certainly, injured for life probably — or even killed.

"Do you like the island?  My grandmother had an island.  Nothing to boast of.  You could walk around it in an hour, but still it was, it was a paradise for us.

One summer, we went for a visit and discovered the place had been infested with rats.  They'd come on a fishing boat and gorged themselves on coconut.  So how do you get rats off an island?  My grandmother showed me.  We buried an oil drum and hinged the lid.  Then we wired coconut to the lid as bait and the rats would come for the coconut and... they would fall into the drum.  And after a month, you have trapped all the rats, but what do you do then? Throw the drum into the ocean?  Burn it?  No. You just leave it and they begin to get hungry.  And one by one they start eating each other until there are only two left.  The two survivors.

And then what?  Do you kill them?  No.  You take them and release them into the trees, but now they don't eat coconut anymore.  Now, they only eat rat. You have changed their nature. The two survivors."

I think those who have identified the vid as people exiting the mall may be correct.  Obviously there could be some miscreants mixed in with the innocent, but it's strange that the only vid is this one.

I suppose the mall only had one working security camera...must be...sure.
