Teen Mob Hits Walgreens On The Mag Mile (Yutes Gone Wild)
CBS Chicago ^ | June 24,2011

Posted on 06/24/2011 9:03:36 AM PDT by chuckee

CHICAGO (CBS) — The teenage robbery mobs are at it again on North Michigan Avenue.

Some 50 young people barged into a Walgreens at Michigan and Chicago on the Magnificent Mile on Tuesday afternoon. They took bottled drinks and sandwiches off the shelves, then ran off, CBS 2′s Suzanne Le Mignot reports.

A police report says authorities were able to nab three of the thieves.

Walgreens says the store is working with police, helping investigators with video from the store security camera.

The Mag Mile earlier this year was hit by similar mobs of young thieves. Attacks on commuters and bicyclists have become violent, and police have stepped up patrols.

Why do you carry a .45?

Because they don’t make a .46

Rapper 'Ludacris'

Lyrics to Ludacris' Obama rap song, "Obama Is Here":

"Hey... I'm back on it

like I just signed my record deal, yeah the best is here

The Bentley Coupe paint is drippin wet, it got sex appeal

Never shoulda hated, you never shoulda doubted him

With a slot in the President's iPod, Obama shouted him

Said I handled my biz and I'm one of his favorite rappers

Well give Luda a special pardon if I'm ever in the slammer

Better yet put me in office, make me a Vice President

Hillary hated on you so that bitch is irrelevant

Now Jesse talkin slick and apologizin for WHAT~?!

If you said it then you MEANT it how you want it, head or gut

And all you other politicians tryin to hate on my man

Watch us win majority vote in every STATE on my man

You cain't stop what's 'bout to happen, we 'bout to make history

The first black President it's destined and it's meant to be

The threats ain't fazin us, the nooses or the jokes

Get off your ass black people it's time to get out and vote

Paint the White House black and I'm sure that's got 'em terrified

McCain don't belong in ANY chair unless he's paralyzed

Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped

Ball up all of his speeches and just throw 'em like candy wraps

Cause what you talkin I hear nothin even relevant

And you the worst of all 43 Presidents

Get out and vote, or the end'll be near

And the world is ready for change cause Obama is here

YEAHHH! Cause Obama is here

The world is ready for change cause Obama is here

Yeahhhh, cause Obama is here

Say world is ready for change cause Obama is here

Hey!

Check the phone records on the Perps. These Mobs use mass text messages to organize, or Facebook. The phones will have records; and by an amazing coincidence, you will likely find that the owners of the other phones on that distribution list, may actually match the faces of the theives on the Security tape.

Then, prosecute under RICO statutes. 50 punks each getting a decade sentence, under FELONY RICO statutes, should discourage this sort of behaviour.

Or, we can slap their wrists; and just chalk this up to “boys will be boys”.

A very effective way to deal with this would be to play the sounds of a Glock 17 in rapid-fire mode over the PA.

The way to deal with these flash mobs is to charge those caught with what they’re really doing: strong-arm robbery (felony), not the usual piddly misdemeanor shoplifting. The opinion of the shopkeepers and owner should weigh heavily here. And those caught can either name everybody they were with or take the rap for 50 felony counts themselves, which means they’ll have gray hair before seeing the street again.

This garbage will continue to happen as long as it continues to be treated as cute and funny frat-boy prank.

Only one solution as the LibDems see it. Don't stock bottled drinks and sandwiches (you know it's coming).

F*****g A$$hole rappers.... looove to see them and their advanced ways in action.....Love to see one of them do a successful open hear surgery on one of their own, or brain surgery, something with skill ....or even something like learning english so they could get some skills and fit in.

Everyone of them has a 3,000lb chip and a huge following of illiterates. If the people were smarter they would recognize them for what they are.

I was basically called a racist right here on FR just a couple of weeks for having the temerity to point out the facts:

1.) These types of incidents are dramatically increasing in frequency

2.) They are overwhelmingly being perpetrated by young, middle class blacks

3.) These facts are not being reorder in the media

Yes. There is a mob scene and two of the recruits get caught in it, when along comes the Commandant in his police car. They jump in and the “Youts” start bouncing the car around, so the one recruit grabs the mike and starts making machine gun noises into it, and everyone starts to scatter. I think this was in the original Police Academy movie.

The middle class Boystown neighborhood in Chicago is right on the red el line. Many of their businesses have had to shut down due to violence. Including the famous Piehole’s pizza. It was the city’s stupid idea to put a teen community center in the middle of Boystown that closed at 11pm and put all these “yutes” on the street at that time to cause havoc.If they had a midnight basketball program,at least the party would have started at 1 AM.

Report: "Teen Mob Hits Walgreens On The Mag Mile (Yutes Gone Wild"

Response: I think it is safe to say "We have a trend!"

Comment: "Conspiracy is a combination for an unlawful purpose." Perkins on Criminal Law. It is a Felony even if the underlying crime is a misdemeanor: i.e. conspiracy to steal a candy bar would be a Felony. However, our society does not have the strength to resist the type of action underlying the posted report. As one famous historian stated "We can no longer excrete." This is especially true when it comes to blacks. As the Gaul said to the Roman: "Woe to the conquered!"

Hey, I like this better than my suggestion to charge them with felony strong-arm robbery instead of the usual misdemeanor shoplifting and disorderly conduct.

<When mobs start breaking in to steal FOOD (not TV’s or Stereo) things are getting worse than we are being told.

In this case, I don’t think so. I think they wanted the flash mob experience, wanted lunch, and if caught, figured they weren’t going to do a lot of time for stealing a coke and a sandwich. It’s a different story if you do this in a jewelry store.

I was just in Chicago the other month and enjoyed my stay around the corner from the Magnificent Mile, shopping and walking up and down. I live in a small town now and it was a treat to go to the big city. I’ve been to the MM several times before and never in all my life did I think I’d have to worry about my safety while inside a store there. What is the world coming to?

I agree with the FReeper who suggested RICO charges. Hang ‘em high and discourage this kind of behavior.

“Search still works”

That’s the response I received when I attempted to make the 2nd post to a thread .. the one which I’d just posted of this exact same article.

However, when I searched this exact title in titles at the top of the page at approximately between 3:55 and 4:14pm, (I copied and pasted the exact text in search as I always do) NOTHING CAME UP. ZERO .. NADA .. NO RESULT .. NO ARTICLE.

Please explain how this happens .. if, in fact, “search still works” .... ???? .

I certainly wouldn’t post a duplicate, if search worked and it appeared. I never do .. who would?

There are technical glitches here.. some recently ... as we all know, so can we assume those are ongoing and these little malfunctions will continue to happen?

I have not yet seen the video of this incident (if any is available) but I will say this unequivocally: I have personally seen at least four different events within the last 3-6 months of these “flash mob” things captured on surveillance video.

In each case, they were all 100% black (within the view of the camera) And,disturbingly (to me) they appeared to be well dressed and groomed (from what could be discerned from the video)

If someone can send me links to video of these flash mobs that would show any other group participating in them, I would be grateful, because to tell you the truth, I don’t get any enjoyment or satisfaction out of making what appears to be a blanket statement, but is true nonetheless in my experience.

Again, not to belabor the point, but it is 100% true in my experience that all blacks are not participants in flash mobs that steal and vandalize private businesses, but it is also true that the four incidents I have heard about WERE all black youths, all appeared to involve middle class people (by appearance) and if the incidents were reported nationally (which they were not, as far as I know, but I could be wrong) there was absolutely no mention of the race of the perpetrators, at the local reports that WERE availble.

I find that just as disturbing as well.
