Mob Of Teens Steals $3K Of Jeans From Wicker Park Store
CBS ^ | 7/29/2012 | CBS

Posted on 07/29/2012 8:28:48 PM PDT by Morgana

CHICAGO (CBS) – A mob of more than 20 teenagers descended on a trendy Wicker Park shop on Saturday and made off with more than $3,000 worth of jeans.

CBS 2′s Derrick Blakley reports the incident was caught on store surveillance cameras, and the owner posted the video on YouTube.

Luke Cho said he hopes the images help police find the robbers, or maybe even shame the parents of the teens enough that they’ll turn the kids in.

From the moment the teens started flooding in the door at Mildblend Supply Co. on Milwaukee Avenue around 6:40 p.m. Saturday, Cho knew something wasn’t right.

I guess Rahm is right; judging from this video, Chick-Fil-A most certainly does not represent Chitcago values.

Say What? Shame the parents? Hell the parents taught them everything they know about flash mobs and mob violence.
How long has Luke Cho lived in Chicago? A week or two? Jeesh!

The comments are rather vitriolic and rather understandable. No one in the media is being honest about the ethnic makeup of these flash mobs. That is guaranteed to result is an increase in harsh feelings towards the blacks. That may be part of the plan.

I am not blaming Mr. Cho, I just think he is not really aware of “Chicago Values”. Therefor I deduced that he was a newcomer to that Stinking Town.

Wanted to comment, but got the notice "Comments are disabled for this video."

Maybe too many were politically incorrect. It is obviously the store's fault for being located in the wrong 'hood.

Call me crazy but I think even the media is realizing that the mobs of black “youths” robbing at will is an embarrassing problem. That’s why they show these videos. They can’t quite admit the racial element but they don’t have to cause the videos do it or them.

Because they haven’t been charged? Since when do they blur faces of suspects? They always ask for the public’s help in apprehending thugs. I can’t believe this.

From Luke Cho according to his ability, to the looters according to their need! Or their whim, or, like, you know, whatever.

I bet this inspirational example of social justice in action was planned by a community organizer.

What's with the plural? Little wonder they think their feral offspring are saints, aint none of em got a Father.

It aint a parent, it's the social recipient of the slave owners govt sanctioned check.


When you "own" another human being for profit. = The govt pays you to have cheeruns. = Slavery.

It’s not funny, but I chuckled at that statement. There is no shame amongst the feral groups in this country.

They've been paying attention: they know that businessman Cho “didn't build that” but rather that they and Obama did. They were only taking what is rightfully theirs. In the second term, EVERYONE'S property will be up for grabs. God help us.

to bad you can’t have a gun in Chicago..

You could protect your business.

The city should be on the hook for this. They have accepted the responsibility for this mans safety and the safety of his property by denying him the ability to.

The city has failed in their responsibility.

The delay in police response is a common thread in the “flash mob” epidemic. They just don’t want to confront the problem any more than the media wants to recognize it. If they had made arrests they would have to answer for claims of brutality and maybe start a bigger riot. Better to have the merchant take all the risks and loss. He’s a bloody capitalist anyhow.

I don’t know what else you expect them to do? In all fairness, it’s the end of the month and the EBT cards don’t get recharged until the 1st of the month.

Unbelievable that these feral black flash mobs continue to vandalize and rob businesses.
The cops never seem to get there in time to catch any of them.
They are caught on security cameras but you never hear of any arrests.
WTH??

If Mr. Cho learned anything from this incident, it should be to get his ass out of Chicago now. If his life means anything to him.
