Roaming Mob Of ‘Urban Youth’ Terrorized Chicago’s ‘Magnificent Mile’

A roaming mob of ‘urban youth’ terrorized Chicago’s ‘Magnificent Mile’ in below-freezing weather, and sent an Asian bystander to the hospital.

Now in Chicago the murder city, even the magnificent mile is no longer safe. A roaming band of 50-60 “teenagers” terrorizes Chicago’s “Magnificent Mile.” At least four people were injured.

If you live in Chicago, you take your chances.

Cold weather no longer is acting as a deterrent to the marauding mobs of teenagers (of no particular demographic characteristic, according to Chicago mainstream media) roaming through Chicago’s showcase shopping district along Upper Michigan Avenue around the Water Tower.  News of the attack could not be ignored, because the famous Water Tower Place Mall had to be closed and because the mob sent an innocent bystander waiting on a subway platform to the hospital.

CWB Chicago, the feisty neighborhood blog that does not shy away from facing Chicago’s descent toward anarchy, reports:

At least four people were injured and CTA Red Line traffic was snarled as large groups of teens and young adults brought havoc to the Magnificent Mile on Saturday evening.  One arrest was made.

Alderman Brian Hopkins (2nd) tweeted at 7:47 p.m. that “Water Tower Place will be closing at 8 p.m. tonight due to mob action by large crowds of juveniles.”

The latest Mag Mile mob scene began around 5 p.m. when a victim reported being battered near the Red Line station at State and Chicago.  A man was arrested in connection with that attack.

At the same time, employees of a nearby McDonald’s reported 50 teenagers fighting inside the restaurant at 10 East Chicago. After being pushed from the restaurant, the group headed to Water Tower Place, where a disturbance was reported on the second floor at 5:45 p.m. Police estimated the crowd to be 50- to 60-strong. More

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson has brushed off the incidents as “kids doing goofy things.” Yeah, kids just doing goofy things… yeah, right. No pictures required. 

This is really nothing new. It’s a regular occurrence because it happens at least a couple times per year.

An unarmed society is a society full of victims.
