Plaza Brawl on the Plaza in front of Movie Theater
The Plaza broke out into an all out brawl on Saturday night as hundreds of teenagers, mostly minorities, gathered in front of The Plaza Movie Theaters and proceeded to turn into a mob. Check out the video:

It looks like it is definitely a specific race that is involved. Surely there are movie theaters in the ghetto that would be closer to home for these youths? The Plaza is supposed to be an upscale shopping area for people who legitimately want to spend money and help to keep the Plaza Merchants in business. It is obvious that these people don't have any intention of shopping or spending money - they are just gathering together to hook up and of course, to fight.
This is basically the under aged version of what goes on most weekend nights in Westport. When the "possies" gather in their stupid pimp mobiles and drive around in circles around the Westport area - and of course shooting people (over 30 shootings in Westport in 2009).
In situations like the plaza brawls and gathering of teens in these locations there is a common theme. Some of the kids are actually there to spend money and go to the movies, etc. But the majority of the crowd, and usually the ones who cause trouble are just there to "hang out", drive around in their cars with the "boom boom" music playing and try to attract other's attention. This is also why they can't open up any large dance clubs anymore, the people who actually do go to the dance clubs to have a good time in the club are threatened and harassed by the "thug" crowd that just shows up to hang out in the parking lot, cause trouble and again, SHOOT PEOPLE. This plaza brawl incident is just those future criminals "warming up" for the big time, where they sit outside nightclubs, drive around in circles booming their stereos and occasionally shooting people.
In most cases like this, it is the nearby businesses that are hurt the most. Several of the local Plaza Merchants had to lock their doors! And that is not fair! Find somewhere to hang out in your own neighborhood.
