Regarding the flash mob event, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney posted a message

Jim Kenney, the mayor of Philadelphia, said in a tweet that a sizable gathering of largely young people were causing destruction and disruption in Center City on Wednesday night. This risky conduct won’t be accepted. We take the protection of the public extremely seriously, and I appreciate Philadelphia Police’s quick action in calming the crowd and making the necessary arrests.

According to a Captain of the Philadelphia Police Department, the disturbances constituted a flash mob. Police reported that the throng had thinned off at 10 o’clock. Police initially claimed that there were 500 youngsters involved in the flash mob, but then stated that they couldn’t provide an accurate figure and that only “a few hundred” had taken part.

Because the majority of the youth in our community are actively involved in their communities, Kenney expressed her sadness when she saw young people acting in a way that endangered both herself and others. To support our young people, we must all work together.
