Wintertime In Philadelphia - Massive Snowball Fight Causes Damage

This story is exhibit A on why we need spring to come and quick.  In downtown Philadelphia there was a giant melee caused by, wait for it, a snowball fight.

A flash mob of teens snowballed into violent brawlers in Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Police suspect the 100 teens gathered at The Gallery on Market St. after organizing the incident on Facebook or Twitter.

According to a Philadelphia TV station, the event began as a massive snowball fight. The crowd quickly became unruly, and spilled into a nearby Macy's department store.

Fights broke out, as the store was damaged and items stolen.

"It was very chaotic," an unidentified woman told the local CBS station. "It was a mob. There were between 40 and 50 kids who tore up Macy's."

So let's recap.  Some one thought it would be a good idea to organize a good old fashioned snowball fight to celebrate snowmegeddon.  But then a few somebodies got mad when they were hit with nasty, dirty, city snow and a fight broke out.  A few other somebodies then took that opportunity to run amuck in the Macy's and break, and probably steal some stuff.

Now a good number of these kids have been dragged down to the police station and will be charge with a crime.  People should realize, that especially nowadays, you really, really don't want to get caught up in the criminal justice system if you can help it...anything could happen.  I wouldn't be surprised if a few of these kids don't end up serving a few months or a year in jail for this stunt.  I wonder if they will still think that a massive snowball fight downtown sounds like fun as they are sitting in jail watching their futures go down the drain.
