Chicago police made 28 arrests Saturday night after teenage mob action and so-called wilding disturbances rocked parts of the city.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported a melee erupted along the famous Magnificent Mile shopping district and that a group of women were attacked on a city transit bus.
CBS Chicago WBBM-TV reported many innocent tourists and shoppers were caught in the middle of the chaos of teenagers purposely bumping into each other and starting fights among themselves.
You had a group of teens, close to maybe 500. They assaulted a Chicago police officer that was on a mounted on a horse and all of a sudden they assaulted a citizen walking the streets, just a normal citizen shopping and enjoying the weather, community activist Andrew Holmes told WBBM.
Seventeen arrests 15 juveniles and two adult men, ages 18 and 19 were made near Chicago and Michigan avenues after police came across a number of kids fighting amongst themselves around 6 p.m., Chicago police spokeswoman Amina Greer told the Sun-Times. Those arrested were charged with reckless conduct.
In a separate incident, 10 juveniles and one adult, an 18-year-old woman, were charged with battery after police said they attacked a group of women on a bus around 6:30 p.m.
Later Saturday night, WBBM reported a man was jumped and punched in the face by a group of teens.
Much of the activity was reported to have been planned weeks ago on social media, according to the station.
I caution those parents if their child has been arrested which numerous teenagers have been arrested tonight, that you need to think about your child. Just dont say the Chicago police picked on your child, when we were watching all the assault going on, especially by teen women, Holmes told WBBM.Yuri
I noticed a certain lack of diversity in the crowd of “teens.”
Look out Rahm, Eric Holder will be coming for you.
You’re messsing with the wrong people.
500!!!! Bet they didn’t attack any fellow BLACKS!
So that’s the new lingo. Makes it all seem so warm and fuzzy.
Hey don’t worry! We know who they were and they were not the traditional Amish we pretend them to be here on FR - they were feral Blacks!
And say what you will about Mayor Daley, he wouldn’t have put up with this crap, his cops would have broken some heads.
I’m sure they were “owed.’
Just a little pre-dawn Easter celebration of Americas vibrant urban yutes.
What racial features did the wilders have? White, black or brown? Mixed genders? Is this data important to know in safe and sane Chicago? Where was the “don’t let a crisis go to waste” mayor? Did he dance in tutu at the affair? Photos?
“And say what you will about Mayor Daley, he wouldnt have put up with this crap, his cops would have broken some heads.”
Perhaps...but there are new opportunities for, ahem, ‘organizing’, these days.
I’d be willing to bet that this was a’flashmob’, organized on Facebook or Twitter - so these 500 ‘teens’ were able to gather and strike at the appointed time. That would be very hard for any police force to deal with.

Yes they were owed a few 5.56 rounds.
“What racial features did the wilders have?”
That’s a racist question./sarc
Should have shot them
"Much of the activity was planned weeks ago on the social media".
If so, National Guardsmen and yellow jail busses should have been posted on every tweeter-designated street corner.....with fixed bayonets and starving attack dogs.
Bet there wouldn't be too much "activity", LOL.
That town needs midnight basketball.
Think of this as a practice exercise for later.
The actual CBS story was posted earlier, and they referred to the crowd as “mischievous.”
They knew nobody would have a gun to defend themselves.
