The victim was not injured in the robbery, Gaines said.

Lack of a “detailed” description suggests
another black on white mob attack directed, encouraged,
condoned, and/or protected by the ultracorrupt
Holder and DO”J”.
for whatever reason, (political correctness), we’re not allowed to discuss race or ethnicity of mob or gang violence. We are allowed to say that the perpetrators are young men, so it’s okay to mention the ages of the criminals. But we can’t mention any other descriptions of them.
Well, we know how liberals are. We have to be sympathetic about the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow laws as we excuse illegal behavior on the part of some people.
Uh, yea. I’m going to walk around by myself with $200k worth if items on me? Don’t think so. This is some type of Insurance fraud scheme, if not, then an inside job with the clerk calling his buddies tellng them about some crazy women with $200k worthof stuff on h er.
Early this morning it was $100k. Still a big iff.
I’m pretty sure that is a Saks store. Maybe they were waiting for the right victim.
I try to not wear more than $50,000 worth of jewelry when walking alone in Chicago. Well, maybe $60,000. But never $200,000. That’s just crazy! I mean, what if someone steals it?
Too many people involved to be insurance fraud.
can we stop with the Amish inferences and maybe move on to another group?....just for a change?....maybe like the “Koreans” or the “Hmong”?
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Scissors are most likely illegal in Chicago, they might be used to hurt an Obamabot!
“Amish” is the perfect mockery.
Amish are law abiding, sober, non-violent, and hard working.
The exact opposite of most urban African-Americans.
I was leaving the Clark and Division subway Friday night when it was filled with a pack of Amish youts. Pretending to fight with each other and just looking for targets. They had the CTA employee cornered who was plaintively saying something about the police ate coming. I slipped out of the station and called 911. The dispatcher seemed unaware of this stop. Its the main stop in the Gold Coast. I said lady you have a pack of youts wilding and you need to send some cops down there now. Cops are all over that neighborhood.....they should have been there in seconds. I waited and none showed up. I believe it was the dispatchers incompetence. There’s no love lost between the cops and these youts . As far as this theft is concerned there is constant police presence right there. Good cops too. Big young guys some right from Afghanistan. This story doesn’t feel right.
That's rotsa root!
You have to be nuts to carry around stuff like that in Chicago or Detroit
Insurance fraud?...The robbers were probably her friends, if there even were any robbers.
It was a group of Quaker Elders conducting a flash mob. There is that better?
I ain't be dipachin no cop on dem insent yunguns !
Dang those Amish!
Could the dispatcher have been one of Holder’s people?
I dont know, Saks carries expensive jewelry and her broach alone was worth 50K.
In the early 80s I was in a high end jewelry store in Houston, Texas looking for a birthday gift for my mother. Two women came in and immediately went to a display of large emeralds. One bought a very large emerald and diamond broach and didnt even flinch at the price, saying it would go good with the dress she just bought.
Some people never think about being robbed.
This may surprise you, but there are people out there who have expensive jewely and wear it. The late Leona Helmsley and people in her wealth category think nothing of $200k wiorth of bling.
Lucky it’s illegal to carry a weapon in Chicago; someone might have got hurt.
Quakers might be better, as the Amish own guns. I don't know if Quakers do or not.
Quakers are pacifists for the most part.
Are they against gun ownership, even for hunting? I know the Amish people are big on hunting as a food source.
I lived between Reading and Lancaster, Pa. back in the 60s, lots of Amish and the men were hunters, I had no doubt back then that they would use their guns to defend family.
I really don’t know what their stand is on guns and the use of guns.
