Flash Mobs Attack 2 Men In Streeterville (The Amish in Chicago)
CBS Chicago ^ | June 5, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 06/05/2011 8:03:52 PM PDT by bkopto

The first attack happened around 8:25 p.m. Saturday when a man was attacked after parking his motor scooter near the Northwestern University campus in Streeterville.

The man had parked on the 300 block of East Chicago Avenue across the street from Wieboldt Hall when a group of 15 to 20 men, all approximately 16 to 20 years old and black, approached him, according to an alert from the university.

One of them threw a baseball at the victim’s face and knocked him to the ground, the alert said. Several others from the group punched and hit him several times. The victim tried to protect himself and fought back.

The Amish have found a growth industry across the larger metropolises across the US - flash mobbing.

No info on the race of the victim, of course.

I don’t think blacks ride scooters.

I’ve never seen one do that.

15 to 20 men

Sounds like its time for full auto open carry laws.

Is this a new mob event in Chicago or the same one reported here earlier today?

I am praying that a victim of these Amish attacks will be in a CCW situation and blow a few of these people away.

But the “victim” would be prosecuted, wouldn’t he? Because we know that it the “Amish” have been the victims for 200 years (even the ones that have been alive for less than that)...

Close to Northwestern-not good for the university.
If it continues look for a drop in enrollment.

Soon Eric Holder’s [In]Justice Department will be on the case.
He will get to the bottom of this. Interesting that this is not labled a “Hate Crime”. Oh, that’s right, blacks attack whites, does not constitute a Hate Crime by either the police or the media. Sorry about that - my stupid mistake.

I say let them burn their cities to the ground. Our job is to make sure that they stay there in the rubble. When they get hungry, let them eat each other.

And to top it off I bet the 20 loser thugs used their free “freedom phones” bought by tax monies for the “less fortunate”. I think everyone should have the right to carry a gatling gun in some areas.

I can’t wait until we have the bullet train between Rahmabad (the capital of Madiganistan) and New Fallujah, MI. We’ll have more of the Amish influence, I’m sure.

Probably way more than enough. In a gang of 100 no one wants to be the first one shot, or even the tenth one shot.

My holster has a slot on it for two spare magazines. I’ve never had a need to use it, or them, but it’s nice to know they are there.

Streeterville is a very nice and wealthy area of Chicago. Great for tourism and a lot of undercover cops work the area. They must have been outgunned.

I might catch some flak for saying this, but what they really need are good jobs. A young man who has just put in eight hours of work in a mill or factory doesn't have much energy to go roaming the streets.

Sure, we need to tighten the penalties for criminal behavior. But we also need to bring basic manufacturing back to the USA.

Many years ago, I was returning from a hike. When I got to my car, which was still miles from the nearest paved road, there were 8 guys sitting on it, drinking whiskey. They got off and started to surround me.

All I had was a 6 shot 22, which I pulled. Happily, none of them said, “8-6=2, we can take him!” In fact, I was able to get in my car and drive off without a shot fired.

Of course, those 8 were not Amish, so it might go down differently now.

They are waiting for someone to hurt one of these misunderstood children so that the black community can take to the street and be outraged by the unfairness of it all.

Flash mobs are a growing phenomenon. I’ll bet these punks have iPhones and internet access so they can come together for these events.

If the Arab Spring creeps can do it, then so can Chicago punks.

Yes, I’ll venture to guess that the next round of inner city riots will be a lot better planned, a lot more mobile, and a lot harder to deal with. Especially since they will probably be listening in on the police frequencies.

A scooter would seem like a limousine to the feral Amish

***I don’t think blacks ride scooters.

I’ve never seen one do that.***

Several years ago I saw a man riding a Harley in Tulsa, OK. On the back of his leather jacket he had these words...

GOD made HONDAS to keep
NI***RS
off of Harleys!

Except he used the real N word! Thought I was gonna choke up since he was heading toward a colored part of town.

Ever time I see a Honda rider I have this flashback..

That's what these guys want, a job. They really want to work eight or nine honest hours a day at a wage they merit.

Maybe they can be unicorn ranchers.

Re race.

I’ve seen crime reports NOT mention race. If you want the public to be safe and to help with catching the criminal... Isn’t this basic identifying information important?

Isn’t the public safety more important than PC concerns??

If they caught me on a good day (for me), I could have taken care of 30 of them until I made my way to the trunk for my shotgun.

“I know what you’re thinking, punk, did I fire 9 shots, or 10? Do I have extra magazines on me?”
