From the KC Star's Trey Williams. Police break up fights involving hundreds of teens at Independence mall https://t.co/i9b6NlJaB4

Independence police called on parents Saturday evening to pick up their kids from Independence Center after multiple large disturbances and fights broke out causing the mall to close early, police said.

In a post on the department’s Facebook page, Independence police said, “If you left a child (under 18) at the Independence Center, come get them now. This is at the request of mall management.”

According to Independence police public information officer John Syme, multiple disturbances and fights involving several hundred teens occurred around 5:30 p.m. The incidents forced mall security to close the mall early, around 6:30 p.m.

Ten individuals were arrested and cited for disorderly conduct, endangering the welfare of a minor, interfering with police, assault on a law enforcement officer, and false information, Syme said in an email.

Six of those were adults and four were juveniles. Four of the adults were parents or grandparents of some of the juveniles who were charged.

Multiple agencies were involved, including the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the Blue Springs, Lee’s Summit and Kansas City Police Departments, Syme said.

Independence police have previously said they have experienced issues with minors causing disturbances at restaurants, businesses and entertainment venues at Independence Center.

Police, along with mall management and local groups, instituted a 9 p.m. curfew for minors, which began Nov. 26.

The curfew is every night and ends at 6 a.m. in the area between 40 Highway on the south, 39th Street on the north, Little Blue Parkway to the east and M291 Highway to the west.

The city said that the curfew is strictly enforced, and that parents of unaccompanied juveniles will be issued citations.

Independence city officials said when announcing the curfew that an uptick in incidents this year prompted the curfew.

“We have had incidents at various businesses, restaurants, entertainment venues, shopping areas and parking lots throughout the region,” Independence Police Chief Brad Halsey said in a news release in November. “In all of these incidents, minors have been causing disturbances, affecting the flow of traffic, and negatively impacting the experience of others visiting these venues. This has diverted police attention from other areas of the community requiring additional presence to protect the patrons and businesses in this area.”

The other problem is the cops. They are not smart. Should of locked the mall down with them inside and called each parent.
I am betting the meetup happened off an app. Have a few of the kids crack and give up how they are meeting up.
Charge everyone for loitering and the ones actually fighting for the assault and more if done. If the kids were 15 are younger charge the parents.

This shit keeps happening and they need to quit being reactionary.

I'm sure a lot of these parents are the same kind of people who line up outside of Wal Mart on Thanksgiving Night, and beat the crap out of each other over a game console...

I work in a downtown high-rise, and one time I looked out my window to see a bunch of teenage girls crossing the street. There were probably 40 or 50 girls in two groups, one ahead of the other. The larger back group caught up with the smaller front group and then it was a big brawl from there. I was sitting on my upper floor looking down as girls were slamming other girls' heads against cars, punches were being thrown in a dozen melees, and all sorts of general chaos happened as they chased each other around on a busy street. It went on for maybe three or four minutes before everyone got dispersed. There were no weapons and no significant injuries, but it was surprising to see. And contrary to cinematic standards, not a single one got her clothes ripped off.

We went to the mall for one reason, and it wasn't to fight.

Hell yes. When IC opened, it was the biggest mall in the country.

It was a pretty big deal at the time.

Schools would be the last place people should expect to look towards for discipline or structure. Blame the home. Parents or parent and lack of family structure. I blame the men or lack of men in these kids lives. Until certain cultures start cleaning up their mess it's going to stay the same or worse.

Shit, my mom would be locked up as a child abuser today. She'd beat my ass with whatever was handy, wherever we were. And thank God she did.

Spare the rod, spoil the child. One of the most basic, undeniable truths of human existence, blasted away by the same idiot cockbags who think there are 20 different genders.
