Media Report on Flash Mob Theft Spree Has “Racial Undertones”

Speaking of racial undertones
A flash mob theft spree occurred Monday at a pricey store on Dupont Circle in Washington DC. See if you can figure out what the media missed in their coverage.

A group of 20 men stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandize from a pricey Washington DC store on Monday.
WJLA reported:

Just before 6 p.m. Monday, a group of nearly 20 young men enter the trendy – and pricey – G Star Raw store at Connecticut Avenue and R Street near Dupont Circle and began helping themselves to whatever they wanted.

The store is down Connecticut Avenue from the National Zoo and this incident occurred about an hour after the stabbing there.

During their minutes long flash mob theft spree, video, exclusively obtained by ABC7 News, shows the suspects hunting through the merchandise as if they were looking for the right size, sometimes even leisurely. Other kids can be seen outside on cell phones and appear to be acting as lookouts for the police.

Just wondering…
When did it become taboo to report the race of a criminal flash mob?
