Yup... an exciting new paradigm...

...cyber riots...

Police said the gang members are part of a group of more than 1,000 youths who have used social media sites like Facebook to plan unruly gatherings on the beach on three of the past four nights.

The beach falls under the jurisdiction of the State Police, who have been unable to prevent the violence.
And it isn't just Boston that's being torn apart...
"It has nothing to do with racism," said Sosa, who lives in South Beach. "It's a lack of respect for the city they're visiting. It's as simple as that. This morning, there were six cars parked on my block with their mirrors ripped off, their antennas ripped off.

It shows our city as nothing short of a warzone - Filthy streets, a drive by shooting, multiple cars crashed in the process, and total chaos on the streets.
And hello, Rochester...
Many people were at the beach to attend the city-organized Rib Festival. Those already at the festival Monday were allowed to stay in the fenced in area.

This isn't the first time a local venue has shut down because of fights on Memorial Day. Seabreeze made it a policy to close on Memorial Day starting last year after rumors of violence. The city has an ongoing issue with crowds of youth at the Liberty Pole downtown.

"I think what you saw at the beach is what we’ve been seeing in many of our neighborhoods for two decades," said Councilman Adam Mcfadden. "It’s just that you had a lot of people there who are not used to that culture and got to witness it personally."
Hmmm... North Carolina...
Investigators say Antwan Terrell Smith was shot and killed after someone pulled a gun just after 1 a.m. during a large fight on 3rd Street. Durante Kavon James was shot in the leg.

It was one of several fights that broke out after the Speed Street celebration in Uptown. CMPD called out its Civil Emergency Unit after reporting that many large groups of people were disobeying police, flashing gang signs, blocking traffic and fighting.

In all, 70 people were arrested - including 15 juveniles. Most of the arrests were for disorderly conduct, fighting, assault, and impeding traffic.
Memorial Day... it ain't what it used to be.

RELATED: It's true what they say...

...there's never a "community organiser" around... when you really need one...
"In the Chicago Tribune, not a word about it, except in mentioning the people who died from gunshots that day, though they don’t mention anything more than that."

So the leader of "Unity Coalition, Miami-Dade County's leading Hispanic gay-rights group" is upset that politically correct identity politics trumps common sense. Yeah.

not seeing the pc angle here... i'd say the upset... and it appears to be country-wide... is more about living in a war zone.

that's not your father's memorial day.

living in a war zone.

Yet everyone carries a gun and they have the highest % of their population in prison.

Must be Obama's fault.
