Flash mob victim's untold story

By Alfred Lubrano

Inquirer Staff Writer

A victim of Philadelphia's March 20 flash mob, Anna Taylor was referred to in media reports only as the 27-year-old woman injured on South Street.

Little was known or said about her.

That will change Wednesday night, as people gather in a Frenchtown, N.J., restaurant for a benefit for Taylor, an uninsured waitress who faces $7,000 in medical and dental bills after being punched in the face by a youth still being sought by Philadelphia police.

Taylor, who is separated and lives in Chalfont with a son, 9, and a daughter, 3, said she has thought a great deal about the punch - "the shock," "the blinding pain," and "the heartbreak that a teenager hit me in the face for no reason."

The blow that Taylor absorbed was so powerful that she lost a front tooth and its root, and the roots of nearby teeth still may die, her dentist told her. The punch also split her upper lip so severely that much of it was hanging from her face and she was unable to speak, Taylor said.

Taylor's mother, Peggy, a Germantown social worker, said her daughter needed so many stitches inside and outside her mouth at Hahnemann University Hospital after the assault that "we just couldn't count them."

The mob took over South Street that warm Saturday night, the first of spring, as though popping up from nowhere, witnesses said. It seemed to be following the patterns of three similar mobs that had quickly assembled in Center City on March 3, Feb. 16, and Dec. 18.

"They had smiles on their faces as they scared people at random," Assistant District Attorney Angel Flores said in an interview with The Inquirer a week after the March 20 attacks. "They thought that assaulting others was a form of enjoyment."

Indeed, the young man who hit Taylor was laughing as he punched her and said, "Bam, there's another one," according to Taylor. "It was frightening."

Taylor and her boyfriend, John Kemp, 35, had been walking about 10:20 p.m. on 15th Street between Kater and South Streets toward the Tritone bar to hear friends' bands play there, Kemp said Tuesday night.

Kemp, a house painter from Warminster, was hit twice in the head by another young man, but did not suffer a serious injury, he said.

"The two of them thought punching us was funny," Kemp said. "I don't know what was in their heads to hit two people they didn't know."

Taylor said that police had shown her photos of people who were in the crowd, but that she was unable to recognize her attacker.

Taylor's attacker was described by Philadelphia Police Lt. Frank Vanore as an 18-year-old black male. The case is still active, he added.

Summoned by Internet messages as well as by cell-phone texts and calls, thousands of teenagers and young adults swarmed South Street on the night of March 20. Police from all over the city flooded the area to control the crowd.

Businesses along South Street locked their doors, and some restaurants kept their patrons inside to ensure their safety. The crowd brought traffic along South Street to a standstill.

By early Sunday morning, police had made three arrests - two for disorderly conduct and one for aggravated assault. At that time, there were no reports of injuries or damage.

As though echoing the social worker in her mother, Taylor said, "This is the worst part of it: that Philadelphia youth are doing this with their time. I'd like to see some help for these kids."

Accustomed to visiting Philadelphia, Taylor said, "I'm trying not to allow this to change the way I think about the city. I don't want to be afraid."

Recently, Taylor returned to the city to hear Kemp play in a band. "I was scared," she admitted. "But no one got hurt that night."

Buoyed by the outpouring of support from friends and neighbors, Taylor said she was impressed by people's concern.

"Frenchtown is the most caring community I've ever been a part of," said Taylor, who plans to be a nurse-midwife.

"Something happens, and they just raise the barn around someone, and I feel so fortunate to be part of that."

Taylor, who friends say is part of a vibrant local arts and music scene, has worked about two years at the restaurant, the Lovin' Oven, in which the benefit will be held.

"She's a loving mother with a glowing soul," said Frenchtown musician Dave Cahill, who helped organize the benefit with Taylor's boss, Julie Klein, co-owner of the Lovin' Oven with her husband, Mike Quinn.

Cahill meant only to alert a few Facebook friends about the benefit. But he said he hit the wrong button on his computer and contacted more than 1,000, many of whom asked where they could send money.

Cahill said it showed the positive power of the Internet, which has itself been criticized for its part in the four flash mobs that have beset the city since late last year.

Peggy Taylor said that her daughter, a size 2 who has lost 15 pounds since the attack, would require several surgeries and need a year to mend.

But, she added, "Our biggest concern is what direction Philadelphia's children are getting. What is the world heading toward?

"My daughter will heal. She will repair in every way. But what will happen to these kids?"

That sort of mass stupidity and mindless violence can only be blamed on. . .

I suppose a number of things could be attributed to this type of behavior.

Clearly these people are targeting white folk, and they have no fear of retaliation.....not even from the people they attacked. This one victim acts as though "we" have failed these youths.

We had a similar situation here locally and those were the exact words of one of the local politicians used... "How did we fail these young people"... as if it is "we" who can build civilized people.

- We are always just one Program away from THE ANSWER.

Twitter caused a flash mob of black yoot in south orange recently (nj). Very similar, just smaller mob (natch, philly is philly). They're going after anyone who appears to be an easy mark. Small framed white girl fits the bill. Smaller groups of black yoot from the same area like to hang out in apartment complexes with a lot of elderly Indian immigrants and attack them when they walk by. The attacks are recorded on cell phones and distributed amongst the same crowd. This is a middle and high school crowd, from Newark and surroundings. In Philly it's (I imagine) Philly school kids of the same age group. They're looking for easy targets and social media has made it easier for them to broadcast their 'accomplishments' to their peers.

The question that could be asked here is why do these kids think watching one of their friends repeatedly punch a little white girl or jump a 75 year old Indian man and kick him repeatedly in the stomach is fun. I don't get it.

I imagine some are just followers and others have an anger inside which blames others for -whatever reason.

If these were White mobs it would be called "racist attacks" lashing out at minorities for -template reasons.

Pounding on old people and women with Glee is alarming, the Sheer numbers just add to that.

Had a flash mob in Kansas City 2 weeks ago. Ah, the benefits of a CCW (concealed carry weapon) permit.

But if someone is attacked by a flash mob like the one in the article and uses their concealed weapon, you can bet which aspect would get the most exposure in the media ... and it wouldn't be the mob. :angry:

in pennsylvania reasonable fear of "heinous crimes against the body" is a triggering cause. if you are vastly outnumbered it is a good shoot, whether the perp has a wep, or not. unfortunately for her, social workers daughters are not the carrying type.

truth is, a single wep brandished by one of the vics would have shut the whole thing down.

where are the cries for "hate crime" status?

it's called hostile dependency. these kids have done nothing for themselves, and are angry at those who provide for them. simple answer? stop providing.

And really, who cares if she's a liberal or not....she sounds like a beautiful person. *shrug*

It's unfortunate that these things are becoming more prevalent. I do believe that one way to stop this is to focus on the kids and try to appeal to the 'weaker' ones.

"In our struggle against racial segregation in Montgomery, Alabama, I came to see at a very early stage that a synthesis of Gandhi's method of nonviolence and the Christian ethic of love is the best weapon available to Negroes for this struggle for freedom and human dignity. It may well be that the Gandhian approach will bring about a solution to the race problem in America. His spirit is a continual reminder to oppressed people that it is possible to resist evil and yet not resort to violence."

IF you have ever rubbed shoulders with this crowd... as I have you, can safely assume, by her reasoning and this... she is a "lib".

But feel free to disagree.

But what difference does it make? She would have been attacked regardless of her poltical persuasion, because she looked like a vulnerable target.

Her response is what leads us to this "teachable moment"...... not that she was a victim.

This mob sought out a helpless minority (we are talking about Philly) to attack and the victim... in some twisted sense of logic "feels" for the mob.

THAT, my friend is a sickness!

I actually love my local arts and music scene and partake in it wherever I travel as well.... I safely assume nothing and those crowds are usually pretty diverse...
