What happen in Galleria last weekend?

I know there was some kind of sports even in Galleria area last weekend (Feb 16-17). But what happen to Galleria Shopping Mall? The shopping mall was 80% crowded with a black community, questionable behavior (blocking the passage to others, shouting). When I was leaving the mall, the Fendi store was locked, a few policemen having 2 black guys handcuffed. And a huge black crowd at the store front discussing them. Supposedly they were trying to steal jewerly from Fendi in a group raid.

I was told by another source that black gangs came over to Galleria that day and flashmob/group-robbed a few stores. This means that 10-20 people fill up one store and start taking out clothes. And no one can stop them because there is not enough security or personnel to stop 20 people at once.

I saw an increased security and police presence in the Mall. I saw a few police officers hiding behind the store windows and watching the areas. But, it seem not to prevent black gangs from group robbing stores.

I saw many black young ladies practically half naked walking up and down the "promenade". When saying "half-naked" I mean (pardon me): partially open bootie, a camel toe, tight pants with crotch, see-through nipples. I would not be surprised to see it at Greenspoint, but Galleria, c'mon!

Overall the whole Mall situation felt like an anarchy - according to my info, a police and security could not prevent theft.

Please share what you know.

P.S. Both, Saturday and Sunday the area was totally crowded. I-59 is stalled, Richmond and Westheimer paralyzed. I was blocked at the parking lot for an hour.

Just curious, were any of them black?

I wrote "black" 6 times in my thread. LOL

It's not a racial difference. It's not a cultural difference. I don't mind black culture and blacks. It was clearly a 1. crime and 2. public rules violation. Any store or a restaurant would not allow that dress-up on their premises. Any race and any cultural event would not allow half naked ladies around their children.

Allstar weekend is the basketball equivalent of Kappa weekend in Galveston. Basically, word got out that Athletes and other celebs were at the Galleria and the crowds swarm. The explanation of the hoochies is the hope of attracting men and hopefully being some ones baby mama. You mix gawkers with wannabe thugs and I'm sure there was plenty of theft going on.

That being said, you could have asked this question in a way that didn't make it sound like you are afraid of black people. For example:
"I went to the Galleria this weekend and shit got CRAZY, any one know the details? I know there was some sort of sports event but I saw ppl being arrested. I heard there might have even been flash mob robberies. Skanks everywhere!"

I can't believe I agree with xulong, but you did come across as a racist in this post.

What was the point of this post? You got "info" from "sources", but can't google "sporting event in Houston" and the date?

Also, don't you think if there were mass robberies at the mall there would be police reports to that affect? Are you new to the Internet? Nah, that can't be it, because you posted this same thing on multiple forums. Just racist, plain and simple.

People go crazy over sporting events and celebrities in town. That's not an excuse to go out and rob the Houston Galleria in big mobs!
