Flash mobs attack Minneapolis

flash-mobs-attack-minneapolis.7756122.40.jpg

Downtown Minneapolis beset by violent gangs

Pieter's mother explains over the phone that her son is resting. Pieter, whose last name is being withheld at his family's request, is recovering from a brain injury suffered when he was attacked by a group of 20 to 30 young people in downtown Minneapolis shortly after 11 p.m. on St. Patrick's Day.

It's a story that has unfolded disturbingly often recently: Since the start of February, "flash mobs" have struck with violence in downtown Minneapolis six times. Three of the attacks have resulted in injuries; Pieter's are by far the most severe. After he was attacked, doctors at HCMC struggled to contain swelling in his brain. The possibility of Pieter needing open-brain surgery hung over the family until the next morning, when doctors finally concluded it wouldn't be necessary. Pieter, 27, is now in the early stages of a slow recovery, but it's too early to know whether he'll ever bounce back completely.

Pieter and his 23-year-old nephew were downtown to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. They were hanging out at Kieran's, and decided to head back to their hotel room on the other side of downtown around 11. While walking, Pieter and his nephew were "blindsided" by "20 to 30 juveniles."

Grace said a Wells Fargo security guard saw part of the incident and later told police that the mob repeatedly kicked Pieter while he lay on the ground helplessly. When the beating finally ceased, Pieter was left with a bloody face, no short-term memory, and significant brain injuries.

Pieter worked as a visual artist and graphic designer before the attack. He's home from the hospital now and staying with his mother, Grace. As he couldn't do in the hours immediately following the beatdown, he now remembers his name and is regaining some mobility. Yet he can't drive or go outside by himself, and his brain is still swollen.

As for the assailants? Both Pieter and his nephew have said the attack commenced so unexpectedly, they really can't remember anything about the young people who beat them mercilessly. "It happened so fast [Pieter] can't remember anything about them," Grace said.

A surveillance camera caught the incident and that tape is now in the custody of Minneapolis police, but no arrests have been made.

Sgt. Steve McCarty of the Minneapolis Police Department said investigators are looking into possible connections between the string of incidents that has downtown Minneapolis on edge. Meanwhile, Pieter faces a long recovery from devastating injuries. —Aaron Rupar

Yeah, it's definitely a problem. Young black boys, usually middle to high school age, using twitter to organize flash mobs. This happens a lot these days. It's unfortunate, not just for the victims but for black people because now my convenience store owner friends are extra vigilant when there's more than 2-3 black kids in the store at once. 99% of the time they're just shoppers but they get treated like crooks anyway. Sucks for them but who's fault is it?
