Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Supt. Eddie Johnson on Tuesday bemoaned the fights that forced the United Center to close, canceling the championship game of a basketball league intended to keep teenagers off the streets in the summer.
The pandemonium some captured on cellphone video prevented neighborhood teams made up of players from two of Chicagos top high school basketball teams Orr Academy and Curie Metropolitan from squaring off in a title game.
As upsetting to Emanuel and Johnson as the ugly scene outside the United Center was the fact that the league itself was supposed to provide a constructive alternative to the lure of gang activity.
That the showcase game would dissolve into fights and pandemonium that forced the United Center to close on Monday night and cancel the championship game was a cause for sadness for both men.

Some little hidden nuggets toward the end regarding a violent anti-fascist group protest.
They can fight outside... or indoors.
No pictures are needed, are they?
And it is quite say that I am most probably correct in my suspicians.
The George Washington statue is to blame.
Am I on DU all of a sudden?
I am sure White Nazis were responsible. /s
So, maybe they intended to be a distraction to enable the knife fight and more chaos. Just maybe.
Was it ‘The Bloods’ from H. Rap Brown Senior High School and the East Westchester Northstars, champions of the Southern Conference?.................
Sad, but not surprised........................
“Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here. This is the War Room”.
Rahm should have called out the national guard for that event.
Interestingly, the only statue in the vicinity was the one of Michael Jordan outside the United Center.
But since that statue was as likely to have caused all the fights that broke out among the yutes as the Confederate statue in Charlottesville caused the fights between the neo-Nazis/Klan and the Antifa/BLM, we better tear it down just to be safe.
These people, Johnson and Emmanuel, are delusional at best and insane at worst.
Shut down by a few 12 & 13 year olds?
SEE, SEE! CONFEDERATES AND WHITE SUPREMACISTS!
Chicago values on full display. Why didn’t the electorate look for successes in Chicago before electing Obama twice?

Those gangs fund the Mob, who keeps you enriched and in power.
