So a bunch of (oddly unidentified) “teens” caused chaos in downtown Chicago on Saturday night….Smashing store windows looting jumping on cars and beating drivers who objected.
Lots of frightened tourists were escorted back to hotels by police and at least 4 people were hospitalized from beatings by the crowd.
Interestingly though, none of the local news stations bothered to identify the teens, doing their best to hide their faces and race. My sources in the Chicago Police tell me that they were all from the South and West sides…Few whites in the unruly crowd, and the “Teen Takeover” was organized on Social Media.
I am also told that the police were told not to “provoke” the crowd and that no arrests were made, even though the cops witnessed many incidents that were worthy of arrests. They have figured out that if they act as a crowd, the police will stand by helplessly rather than act to enforce Law and Order.
It oughta be a wonderful summer in Chicago if this is just the start. Decent people afraid to be out on a Saturday evening for fear of violence……
Oughta do a great deal of good for race relations…..everyone knows the race of the troublemakers even if the Media won’t come out and say it.
Update: 6:04 AM 4/17 According to CBS News Chicago, some arrests were apparently made. 9 “Yoots” and 6 adults. Apparently the chaos started on FRIDAY, which is when no arrests were made. On Saturday the miscreants were even more bold, and Something Had To Be Done…
