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
REMARKABLY, CBS Chicago fails to mention all of the thieves were BLACK!!! Just another oversight, to be sure!!!!
There’s something about Chicago...can’t quite think of what it is...
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
YouTube video: Ludacris - "Obama Is Here":
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”.
The cowards would evaporate faster than QE3.
Sounds like they doing a little wealth redistribution against the man!
When mobs start breaking in to steal FOOD (not TV’s or Stereo) things are getting worse than we are being told.
” They took bottled drinks and sandwiches off the shelves, then ran off...”
“It’s Whitey’s fault for makin’ me want it so bad!”
Following the Constitution via the 2nd amendment and giving midnight basketball credit for it maybe.
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.
I’d like to see how that bear spray works on a windy day!
Well, the mayor sure cleaned that one up..../s/
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.
Move off the shelf Shakespeare, you've been replaced!
Spraying 00 shot is more effective, IMHO:)
Lock 'em in.
Legalize public flogging, too.
Shades of Police Academy movies...
Is there such a scene in there?
Facebook won’t let me post this article. It says it’s abusive.
That’s a great idea. I’d like to have that working on my lawn.
Obama voters in action. They be owed that.
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
Being REPORTED by 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.
“all of the thieves were BLACK!!!”
How do you know that?
Ya, why is it okay to call them “young” or “teens” but never identified by other characteristics, such as race and ethnicity?????
You’re thinking on the premise Eric Holder will do his job.
Rahm Emmanuel didn’t step into the cesspool, he helped create it, then bought a ticket to dive in
"Release the hounds."
Those crazy red-headed Irish kids are at it again.
Ludacris = Load’o’crap
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.
Ah, the “youths” are back in the news. Who could have predicted that?
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 TVs 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?
It was surprising to me I had posted a duplicate thread after searching correctly.
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.
