rmed with cellphones and connected through social media sites, young people banding in

groups have been rushing into stores or assaulting bystanders in a slew of “flash mob” incidents

across the United States, leaving police and public officials scrambling to curtail crimes

associated with these spontaneous assemblies. Although most flash mobs are harmless, with pointless acts that involve dancing, freezing on the spot, or some other activity, their potential

to become sites for criminal and violent behavior should be of concern for law enforcement agencies and

local

governments.

Generally, flash mobs are groups of people who congregate in public spaces to carry

out incongruous acts and leave after a brief period of time. We have seen such groups on YouTube and television advertisements doing everything from dancing and singing, to freezing in place and chirping

In the past two years, there have been dozens of incidents of flash mob violence.1 In April

2010, Philadelphia police had to respond to 150 teens converging into a flash mob in a major

shopping area of the city. The teens ransacked Macy’s and a convenience store, plus they attacked and damaged.

This past summer, flash mobs reappeared on the streets of Philadelphia, where groups of youths

gravitated to a designated location at an appointed time. Once there, they became a mob that

gathered force as it roamed the streets, wreaking havoc on businesses while terrifying and sometimes attacking pedestrians.

In June 2011, four men were assaulted by large groups of youth in Chicago, raising fears of

flash mobs in the area. In August 2011, hundreds of youth targeted, attacked, and robbed fairgoers at the Wisconsin State Fair near Milwaukee. In London, rioting and looting in August 2011 has been blamed in part on groups of youths using Twitter, mobile phone text messages, and instant

EDITOR’S OPINION Dear Reader: Camouflage is the most importnr aspect of survival, it develops differently depending

on the physiology and behavior of an animal. For example, an animal with fur will develop a different sort of camouflage than an animal with scales, and an animal that swims in large schools underwater will develop different camouflage than one that swings alone through the trees.

An animal's environment is often the most important factor in what the camouflage

looks like. The simplest camouflage technique is for an animal to match the "background"

of its surroundings. In this case, the various elements of the natural habitat may be referred to as the model for the camouflage.

Since the ultimate goal of camouflage is to hide from other animals, the physiology

and behavior of an animal's predators or prey is highly significant. An animal will not develop any camouflage that does not help it survive, so not all animals blend in with their environment the same way. For example, there's no point in an animal replicating the color of its surroundings if its main predator is color-blind.

Since the ultimate goal of camouflage is to hide from other animals, the physiology

in with their environment the same way. For example, there's no point in an animal replicating the color of its surroundings if its main predator is color-blind.

For most animals, "blending in" is the most effective approach. You can see this

sort of camouflage everywhere. Deer, squirrels, hedgehogs and many other animals have brownish, "earth tone" colors that match the brown of the trees and soil at the forest

ground level. Sharks, dolphins and many other sea creatures have a grayish-blue coloring, which helps them blend in with the soft light underwater.
