When Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1964, riots broke out nationwide in America. If and when U.S President Barack Obama is assassinated, America can expect the same thing, only that this time around the riots will be super-charged and provocateured by the full force of the U.S. government and its media propaganda machine. The city of Philadelphia has been primed for riots over the last few years by combining abject poverty with organized crime (gangs) from New York City. These rioters will likely be paid to riot in the aftermath of an Obama assassination or major terror attack, just as they did in the London Riots of 2011.
Recent news, reports, and events that have occurred in Philadelphia are not an accident, but rather a coordinated and contrived program meant to bring about Martial Law in the wake of mass riots. Preparation for riots in Philadelphia and America started immediately after the London riots subsided and riot drills by law enforcement are now occurring across America. Whether the Occupy Wall Street protests are part of these riot drills is secondary, for as Mark Potok of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center recently stated, "I think there is a huge amount of anger out there...What we're really lacking at this moment is a kind of spark."
OBAMACSI.COM: Prior to any flash mobs, curfews or random violence in Philadelphia, the U.S. Department of Justice predicted that due to "open" drug markets, the "20 nationally recognized gangs" would commit violence against law enforcement officials in East Pennsylvania. While this prediction has not yet come to fruition, it is likely only a matter of time.

New York Area Gangs
Previously significant but ad hoc suppliers of drugs to eastern Pennsylvania—are becoming increasingly organized, entrenched, and dominant in many eastern Pennsylvania drug markets…There are at least 20 nationally recognized gangs, some with multiple subgroups (or sets), active in at least 21 of the 42 counties in eastern Pennsylvania. Every gang and gang set is active to some degree in drug distribution, and several were originally based in the New York area. These gangs are now among the leading drug distributors in the region. The leading cause of gang migration into eastern Pennsylvania is the opportunity for members to profit from drug sales in open, uncontested markets
Rival gangs and organized thieves are increasingly engaging in home invasions, ransom kidnappings, and organized thefts from drug dealers in many eastern Pennsylvania drug markets. Drug-related violent crime between some rival criminal groups in eastern Pennsylvania is increasing…Such violence is typically conducted by street gangs and independent robbery crews that target other criminals. Some gang violence has been directed against law enforcement officers, and in some areas such violence has increased. Furthermore, NDIC assesses with moderate confidence that incidents of drug related violence against law enforcement officers will increase, as evidenced by rising levels of aggression by some gang members (U.S. Department of Justice, 2011).
2. THE RIOTS
OBAMACSI.COM: Based on the fallout from the London Riots of 2011, governmental provocation and instigation played heavily in the origination and fomentation of the riots. While the UK police stood down, rioters looted and caused mayhem with little or no regard for law enforcement. Based on the evidence and data available, the Obama administration, with or without Obama, will follow the London blueprint and pay rioters to burn American cities while the police watch. The London Riots were orchestrated to crack down on social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube), impose martial law, and set an example for things to come in America, namely Philadelphia.

Approximately 180 police officers total from each borough’s task force, including the horseback and aviation units, came out for the drill, according to police.
“The London response wasn’t that great — they were outnumbered and taken by surprise,” said Mike Codella, a retired NYPD detective. When he was on the force, riot drills happened once a year at most, he said.
The training exercise comes the same week the NYPD has stepped up its monitoring of social media, used to organize mayhem across England and also to coordinate teen mobs in Philadelphia.
Police will now troll sites like Twitter and Facebook for suspicious activity, gang feuds and house parties as part of a new juvenile justice unit (Metro News, 2011).
Title: Mayor Bloomberg Predicts Riots In The Streets If Economy Doesn't Create More Jobs
Date: September 16, 2011
Source: NY Daily News
Abstract: Mayor Bloomberg warned Friday there would be riots in the streets if Washington doesn't get serious about generating jobs.
"We have a lot of kids graduating college, can't find jobs," Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show.
"That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here."
In Cairo, angry Egyptians took out their frustrations by toppling presidential strongman Hosni Mubarak - and more recently attacking the Israeli embassy.
As for Madrid, the most recent street protests were sparked by widespread unhappiness that the Spanish government was spending millions on the visit of Pope Benedict instead of dealing with widespread unemployment.
Bloomberg's unusually alarmist pronouncement came as President Obama has been pressuring reluctant Republicans to pass his proposed job creation plan.
"The damage to a generation that can't find jobs will go on for many, many years," the normally-measured mayor said.
Bloomberg gave Obama kudos for coming up with a jobs plan.
"At least he's got some ideas on the table, whether you like those or not," he said. "Now everybody's got to sit down and say we're actually gonna do something and you have to do something on both the revenue and the expense side."
And everybody's got to share in the pain. 3. FLASH MOBS
OBAMACSI.COM: As if on a schedule, "flash mobs" started occurring in Philadelphia immediately after the conclusion of the London Riots. These "flash mobs" also appeared roughly 5 months after the U.S. Department of Justice's Gang Threat Assessment which predicts that violence will erupt in Eastern Pennsylvania. Just a coincidence or a contrived conspiracy?
Title: Philadelphia Mayor Talks Tough To Black Teenagers After ‘Flash Mobs’
Date: August 8, 2011
Source: Washington Times
Abstract: Mayor Michael A. Nutter, telling marauding black youths “you have damaged your own race,” imposed a tougher curfew Monday in response to the latest “flash mob” — spontaneous groups of teens who attack people at random on the streets of the city’s tourist and fashionable shopping districts. “Take those God-darn hoodies down, especially in the summer,” Mr. Nutter, the city’s third black mayor, said in an angry lecture aimed at black teens. “Pull your pants up and buy a belt ‘cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt.”
“If you walk into somebody’s office with your hair uncombed and a pick in the back, and your shoes untied, and your pants half down, tattoos up and down your arms and on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won’t hire you? They don’t hire you ‘cause you look like you’re crazy,” the mayor said. “You have damaged your own race.”
Mr. Nutter announced that he was beefing up police patrols in certain neighborhoods, enlisting volunteers to monitor the streets and moving up the weekend curfew for minors to 9 p.m.
Parents will face increased fines for each time their child is caught violating the curfew.
The head of Philadelphia’s chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, J. Whyatt Mondesire, said it “took courage” for Mr. Nutter to deliver the message.
“These are majority African-American youths and they need to be called on it,” Mr. Mondesire said.
Mary Catherine Roper, a spokeswoman for the Philadelphia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, said her group sees the curfew move as legal with its sole caveat being that it not evolve “into an excuse to hassle” any youths on the street.
The state ACLU filed a federal lawsuit last year challenging Philadelphia police’s use of “stop and frisk” searches. A settlement announced in June allowed the program to continue, along with safeguards to prevent the use of racial profiling.
In the past two years, the City of Brotherly Love has been the scene of several flash mobs in which youths meet at planned locations by texting one another and then commit assorted mayhem.
In one episode, teens knocked down passers-by on a Center City street and entered an upscale department store where they assaulted shoppers. On another occasion, hundreds of teens gathered in a restaurant district and menaced patrons, forcing some restaurant owners to lock customers inside temporarily for their own protection or to close early.
In the latest event July 29, about 20 to 30 youths descended on Center City after dark, then punched, beat and robbed bystanders. One man was kicked so savagely that he was hospitalized with a fractured skull. Police arrested four people, including an 11-year-old.
Other cities have grappled with the problem of destructive flash mobs. In Chicago on Memorial Day weekend, roving teens flashed gang signs, knocked cyclists off their bikes and harassed picnickers. Police closed a popular beach as the violence escalated.
January, dozens of young people stormed a popular Milwaukee mall late
in the afternoon and scared customers and store employees (Washington Times, 2011).
4. THE PHILLY CURFEW
OBAMACSI.COM: To add gasoline to the fire, the mayor of Philadelphia has laid down an unrealistic curfew in response to the flash mobs. The 9pm curfew is obviously designed to punish and anger the law abiding citizens of Philadelphia so that when gang members are paid to riot, law abiding citizens will follow.
Date: August 12, 2011
Source: USA Today
A tough new 9 p.m. curfew for young people under 18 goes into effect in parts of Philadelphia tonight as the mayor and police try to break up "flash mob" violence that has plagued the city for almost two years, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The "flash mobs," organized via social media and text messages, mobilize hundreds and sometimes thousands of young people to a designated location where they harass and beat up people on the street.
In one incident, the gangs of mostly black teens knocked down passers-by, then descended on a department store to assault shoppers, says a report by BET. In another case, hundreds of teens besieged the city's restaurant district, forcing owners to shut down for the night.
In announcing the curfew, Mayor Michael Nutter blamed the "terrible acts" on a "small number of reckless teenagers who have damaged our city and our citizens."
On Sunday, Nutter, who is African American, mounted the pulpit at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in West Philadelphia to scold the troublemakers by saying "you have damaged your race," BET reports.
An excerpt from his remarks to the congregation:
"If you walk into somebody's office with your hair uncombed and a pick in the back, and your shoes untied, and your pants half-down, tattoos up and down your arms and on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won't hire you? They don't hire you 'cause you look like you're crazy."
who violate the target curfew can be fined up to $300. Parents who have
received a curfew-violation notice can be fined up to $500 for a new
violation by their child (USA Today, 2011)
Date: August 13, 2011
Abstract: About 50 teenagers were arrested in Philadelphia on Friday night after breaking a new 9pm weekend curfew imposed to combat a spate of flash mob attacks.
Michael Nutter, the city's mayor, has enacted the curfew on Friday and Saturday nights in three districts where bystanders have been attacked by marauding teens using social media networks to co-ordinate their meetings and movements.
Unaccompanied teens aged between 13 and 18 were banned from the streets of the colonial Old City, the nation's birthplace whose historic sites include the hall where the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were adopted, and two other busy nightlife districts.
Under-13s are already subject to a 10pm curfew across the City of Brotherly Love, as Philadelphia likes to call itself.
The initiative is likely to be closely followed in Britain after a series of cities were hit by riots where youths used similar social media techniques to organise their rampages.
The arrested teens face fines of up to $300 (£185) for their first offence. Parents may be fined up to $500 (£307) if their children are caught a second time and could also be charged with child neglect if they do not respond to police requests to collect arrested teenagers.
The city has stepped up programmes at youth and recreation centres on the weekend nights in an attempt to keep teens off the streets.
Mr Nutter blamed recent violence on a "relatively small number of complete knuckleheads".
But Mr Nutter, who is black, also lectured parents and the African-American community about their social responsibilities.
"If you want to act like an idiot - move," Mr Nutter said in a scathing speech from the pulpit of a predominantly black church in comments directed both at troublemakers and negligent parents.
"You've damaged yourself; you've damaged another person; you've damaged your peers; and quite frankly you've damaged your race."
To parents, he said: "Get your act together. Get it together, right now! ...[or] you're going to find yourself spending some quality time with your kids, in jail, together."
He aimed much of his fire at absentee fathers in a city with an high black illegitimacy rate: "You're not a father just because you have a kid, or two, or three.
"That's part of the problem in our community. Let me speak plain: That's part of the problem in 'the black community'.
"We have too many men, making too many babies that they don't want to take care of, and then we end up dealing with your children. We're not running a big baby-sitting service.
"You were around for the sex - now, be around for the parenting."
Philadelphia has in recent weeks witnessed swarms of minors, some as young as 11, who have converged in response to Twitter and text messages.
In one rampage by two dozen youths, one man was left in hospital with a broken jaw. In another incident, a woman was punched in the face and suffered a broken leg as she fell.
On Friday night, extra police patrols were deployed to check identities of
anyone who looked as though they may have been under 18 (Telegraph, 2011).

Abstract: Mayor Nutter has decided to take an ironfisted approach to the city's flash-mob problem. Although his motives and much of his response are commendable, his decision to institute a curfew for portions of the city is troubling. While last weekend's relative quiet was attributed to the curfew, its reported effectiveness does not necessarily make it right.
Under the curfew, youths under 18 who are found out and about after 9 p.m. in Center City, the South Street area, and University City are subject to arrest. The problem with this is that it's a "status crime": a crime based not on what people do, but on who they are - in this case, children and adolescents.
America has had plenty of experience with status crimes. The most obnoxious example is the Jim Crow laws of the South, which criminalized people based on the color of their skin. Another example is vagrancy laws, which in effect criminalized homelessness. Such laws were eventually abolished as an affront to constitutional principles.
Although imposing a curfew on young people may not be as offensive as Jim Crow or vagrancy laws, it is nevertheless an extraordinary assertion of government power that dictates where certain people may lawfully be present. How can this be reconciled with our system of government?
Usually, for such an assertion of power to be legitimate, there must be some emergency situation confronting local authorities - think riots and other civil disturbances. Do Philadelphia's flash mobs rise to that level?
True, crimes are being committed and lives are being adversely affected, but there hasn't been the sort of wholesale disorder or full-blown rioting that typically justifies such a drastic remedy. Law enforcement officials have not been overwhelmed by the mobs.
By the standards of this curfew, any group seen as having a propensity to commit crimes can be kept off the streets by simple government decree. If we really want to make the curfew effective, we should apply it to all men ages 16 to 25, as statistics show they account for most of the street crime in America. If there were any way to enforce such a law and defend it from constitutional challenge, Philadelphia's crime problem could be solved in one fell swoop.
Authorities have many options for dealing with mobs short of a curfew. Outreach programs can help discourage them, as does an increased police presence in affected areas. Police must also develop intelligence on the formation of mobs and arrest those involved through good old-fashioned police work. The court system, too, must respond with quick, strong sanctions that send a clear message. It may not be easy, but a coordinated criminal-justice response will go a long way toward ending the flash-mob phenomenon.The mayor's frustration at the flash mobs and his sense of urgency in dealing with them is widely shared. Lawlessness cannot be tolerated. But it must be confronted in a manner consistent with our Constitution. The curfew is not, and it should be rescinded (The Inquirer, 2011).

Abstract: Philadelphia officials are extending the curfew for minors for two more weeks until the regular school-year curfew takes effect.
The 9 p.m. curfew was put in place downtown and near the University of Pennsylvania in response to violent "flash mob" attacks that severely injured several people in recent months.
Mayor Michael Nutter's administration says he's extending it another two weeks.
Nutter spokesman Mark McDonald says there have been no major problems in the few weeks since the curfew was put into effect. Philadelphia police on Monday reported 32 curfew violations over the weekend.
The school-year curfew starts Sept. 6 (Fox News, 2011).
OBAMACSI.COM: Out of seemingly nowhere, Philadelphia has garnered national and international attention for violence and thuggery. As if part of a larger sinister program, men, likely gang members, have begun attacking random people without cause or concern.

Abstract: Police say gunfire erupted at a southwest Philadelphia basketball court during halftime of an adult league game with hundreds of spectators, injuring six people, one critically.
Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives says about 500 people were at the 19-and-over league playoff game at Kingsessing Recreation Center when shots rang out at about 8:45 p.m. Monday.
He says five men and one woman were taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where one man hit in the stomach was in surgery but the others were stable with injuries to their lower extremities.
Walker said at least 11 shots were fired, and another person in the crowd may have returned fire.
Police pursued a male who ditched a revolver before escaping, but that gun had not been fired (Fox News, 2011).
