Following a second teenage mob attack where as many as 50 teens flooded the streets of Memphis attacking a mother driving with her daughter, Memphis police are now pointing the fingers at parents.
In a statement by Police Director Tony Armstrong, he states “parental supervision is crucial” in “reducing delinquent behavior” adding that “we have got to get parents involved” in our children’s lives.
Meanwhile, Mayor A.C. Wharton and the sheriff’s office have been called upon to do something about the troubling recent teen mob attacks in the city.
As reported on MemphisRap.com, it was Friday night in Mid-town near Central High School that a mob of teens reportedly coming from a football game surrounded a mother and her daughter attacking her vehicle in the middle of the street.
Sharon Mourning feared for her life as she drove with her daughter during the sudden attack as she even claimed to have witnessed the beaten of another teenager as well as an elderly man in another vehicle.
Following the incident, Mourning made a statement that will burn in the ears of those listening saying “Memphis is gonna burn … if they don’t control these children.
Since the attack, three juveniles have been reportedly charged as teens were sent home after a summons following Mourning’s attack, which she says isn’t enough.
