On Black Friday near San Francisco, a wild mob at an outdoor mall brutally attacked and choked out an off-duty California Highway Patrolman.

And the whole thing was caught on video.

As reported by the Bay Area’s KRON, the incident took place around 8 p.m.

A woman at the Emeryville Bay Street Mall believed her phone had been stolen by a group of teens, so she approached them to ask for it back.

In the video, two males — one in a white hoodie and red cap and the other wearing black jeans — appear to threaten the woman. Mr. Red pushes her. Hard.

Finally, a man who — as it turns out — is a Highway Patrol officer steps in to defend the diminutive accuser and de-escalate things.

He takes photos of the cretin crew.

Then, as described by The Sacramento Bee, “Yanking off his hat and sweatshirt, at least one teen charges the man and a wild brawl erupts…”

They’re not kidding — it’s about to be a beatdown. Hence, the officer hightails it. The swarm catches up with a savage assault.

More buzz from the Bee:

Some of the teens appear to try to intervene while others join in as the chaotic fight moves down a pedestrian walkway, into landscaping and then back onto the walkway, the video shows. Several teens can be seen beating the off-duty officer, sometimes as he’s on the ground.

It doesn’t end well for the cop, as per detective Jaime Pardo:

“He was punched. He was kicked. He was taken to the ground.

And…

“He was choked. He lost consciousness for a minute…”

As noted by ABC7, he eventually rallied:

The off-duty CHP officer regained consciousness and used pepper spray on one of the suspects. Two juveniles, ages 14 and 16, were arrested. Six other suspects are still at large.

As seen in surveillance video, yellow-vested security guards eventually showed up and attempt to stop the ferocious thrashing.

On-duty officers at the nearby Apple store also responded.

The wounded officer drove himself to the hospital.

KPIX5 reports that two males — ages 14 and 16 — were arrested on suspicion of assault. Officials are searching for six others.

This wasn’t an incident that occurred in a bad part of town under a railroad trestle. It happened at a nice mall, courtesy of young people wearing what look to be nice clothes.

What is happening in our society that would allow for this?
