Paulsboro is a small New Jersey town with only about 6,000 residents. It is 40% black.
On Saturday, Paulsboro police responded to reports of fighting. Police attempted to arrest two young black females. One of them punched a female officer in the face. Then 75-100 young black males and females surrounded the officers and tried to free the two suspects.
A local CBS station alleges that nine different police departments responded to the violence. Drone video shows a vast number of police cars in the area after the mob violence subsided.
The two females were eventually taken into custody. However, up to twenty-five more arrests are expected. Police are using body camera videos to identify the suspects.
Later that night, more mob violence involving young blacks broke out in Paulsboro again.
