3 Arrested in Apparent Mob Attack
ABC 7 WLS-TV ^ | 8 June 2011 | Jason Knowles

Posted on 06/08/2011 10:25:46 AM PDT by Steely Tom

Chicago police say they have three people in custody after the latest mob-style attack on Chicago's Near North Side.

At least two people were robbed by a group of people Tuesday night.

Several residents and employees were on edge Wednesday, afraid the group attacks are becoming the norm.

A pack of a dozen police officers patrolled the crime scene area Wednesday morning. They said it was business as usual. However, those who live and work in the area said they wanted more protection.

Also note there was no mention of the race of the perps or the victims—another affie on whitey crime ignored by the press. Make no mistake, if it was the other way around, hate crime would have been splashed all over national news.

I think social media has a lot to do with it. Thank god face book and twitter were not around during the 1992 L.A. riots.

It’s a fascinating phenomenon isn’t it. There are about 4 reports on Drudge, everything to random attacks on their lakefront on tourists and convention attendees to mass attacks on city busses in which passengers are attacked and fleeced.

Society descending into chaos; try reading “A Clockwork Orange”.

Dear sheeple, should have kept an eye and your vote on your politicians.
The only people allowed firearms are the criminals and police on the streets, due to the laws.
Well, criminals aren't allowed, but criminal do not care, this is why they are criminals.
Criminals do not obey the law, as law-observing citizens do.
Change your politicians and arm yourselves, if you want protection.
I would recommend this be done yesterday.
Sorry, this is your only choice, otherwise prepare for the slaughter, sheeple of Chicago.

I think that there are several reasons, but one of them is the expectation of no penalty for participating.

I don’t find it “fascinating” at all....I find it highly disturbing, and what I find the most disturbing is that people sit there and take it....sure, you can’t fight off 15 black thugs, but you sure could bloody the face of one or two to make them think once or twice about it next time....

I imagine that the media will soon be putting a lid on reports of future attacks. I would suggest for FR people that; if an attack occurs in your home region and is not reported, then post it on this site.

I understand the catalyst for all these mob attacks in recent weeks, but it seems as though they have sprung up out of nowhere. What are the chances they are being orchestrated by some nefarious commander? We know a bunch of lefties wanted a version of the Egyptian revolts to hit America. This could be what they were looking for.

They may, indeed. I don't think it will work though. The same media that makes these coordinated attacks possible also makes their existence impossible to hide.

FWIW, my expectation is that we'll soon see call for licensure of cell phones, more warrantless evesdropping on cell phones, including warrantless tracking of individual cell phones by means of GPS and tower-triangulation.

We also may see judges handing down sentences that include "no cell phone use for five years" or "no cell phone use for life." When sentencing patterns reveal a racial correlation to these sentences, they'll be attacked as unconstitutional.

We'll also be seeing different types of social networking activity prosecuted as criminal offenses. There will be cases of ordinary people, setting up a meeting of three or four friends at a mall food court, resulting in a "dynamic entry" attack of residences, based on information from a "Confidential Informant."

They have their boy in the Whitey House and they have their boy at the [In]Justice Department. As such, they pretty much have “Carte Blanche” to do their thing. Remember, Eric “the racist” Holder has said he will not prosecute blacks.

Opposite. Liberals thought Obama would help race relations. Instead we have more mob violence, much of it against urban liberals. All those people enamored with the celebrity president are worried that we can’t afford him anymore. He’ll lose in 2012 if this keeps up. People will not vote for no jobs and mob violence.

My prediction here is that it will soon become abundantly clear to the residents of the city of Chicago that the elitists who run their city will be willing to allow many of their innocent worker ants to be killed in these new 'mob swarm' style attacks in order to prevent something worse from happening which will be regarded by them as only exacerbating the situation and amplifying the problem: Namely, armed self-defense as outlined in 'McDonald vs. the City of Chicago'.

The political officers in charge of Chicago can accept several dozen innocent citizens being killed. Their deaths are explainable, and even the blame can be shifted elsewhere. Their deaths even provide an opportunity for politicians to pose as crime fighting heroes with a bunch of tough talk. There's just no downside to deaths of citizens if you have a competent political spin machine. At worst, all that's required will be to apologize to a bunch of liberals who voted for you anyway and will continue to do so. What else can they do?

What the big city politicians can't risk is any of these violent flash mob thugs picking the wrong target and getting a stomach full of lead: Nobody at the city leadership level needs a new anti-hero like Bernie Goetz, heightened hostility from the urban criminals, and a bunch of inner city ministers denouncing violence using that annoying preacher schtick, not to mention wailing mommas lamenting the deaths of their babies. The national scrutiny of big cities by a divided American public and weeks upon weeks of a vigilante's trial will be too damaging and capture all the news cycles: Nancy Grace, Joy Behar, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, MSNBC, FOX News... Oh, HELL no. Please, anything but our fair city being turned into America's next pop culture public spectacle.

It's so much easier to just let the innocent citizens get killed, pretend to be mortified over it, and then it's all forgotten a week later. There's really no newspapers to rake any politician over the coals anymore, and what left wing journalists remain will just blame the NRA anyway even if the innocent victims are stabbed with a kitchen knife. In fact, you can even call the last fleeing taxpayers a bunch of racists for moving out of the city to escape the violence.

It's going to be a long hot summer, starting yesterday.

You make good points, but I'm puzzled by you're "pretend to be mortified by it" remark? Who? Who pretends to be mortified? I haven't seen anyone treat this as anything but a mysterious phenomonon that we're not even really sure actually exists.

It's like Morgellon's disease.

"There are scattered reports of this strange manifestation; not everyone even agrees that it exists, it may be a case of mass hysteria, propagated by the mass media. More research is needed before anyone can say anything for sure, but for now, authorities are cautioning the public to remain calm and let the investigative process take its course."

Yada yada.

Remember that flash attack that happened at the Iowa State Fair last August? "Beat Whitey Night?" Have you heard anything about that since?

Another mystery. Research is being conducted. Right.

I guess you make a good point that the civic chieftains don't even have to pretend to be the least bit chagrined, but there's certainly some threshold that, when crossed, forces the politician into taking a public stand and declaring their outrage.

There's got to be some secret formula that political advisers use to tell their employer that he/she needs to get face-time with the media in response to a given crime or public outrage: It's probably all based on flash poll trending, the nature of the case (Dead child or cop involved? Add +1 point. Celebrity involved? Add +3 points. Black preacher organizing a protest march? Add +10 points, etc.), what political hay an opponent could make against the incumbent, divided by available civic funding, multiplied by how many months there is to go before re-election or if the politician is a candidate for higher office.

The final result either instructs the politician to 'lay low' or 'get out in front of this' and declare how chagrined and outraged they are to the media, "we will not rest a single moment until the offenders are brought to justice (now let's get a bite of lunch over at DelMonico's)", and so on.

You're right. They don't REALLY care.

Very recently Zero hired/appointed some new czar or overseer of “Progressive” media (the official title escapes me but the word “Progressive” was in it), using “social media”, blogs, websites to get “Obama’s message out”.

This is on our dime.

I have no doubt whatsoever that what we’re seeing is part of the planned action, and WE’RE PAYING FOR IT!

You've got a large segment of the urban population in any large city that sincerely believes that white people deserve any random beat-down they get. The fact that this causes mass numbers of white people to vamoose to the suburbs, and farther, thereby sinking their cities farther and farther into a morass of misery, failure and poverty seems not to register at all. They really couldn't care less.

The biggest thing they have to look forward to in life is not a family, or happy children, or a nice home. They think all of those things are unattainable. They think the government gives those things to white people, and doesn't give those things to them, because the government is run by a bunch of racists.

The biggest thing they have to look forward to in life is seeing some random white person beaten, or killed, or tortured and then killed. This is what they look forward to. When this happens, they feel that the scales have been balanced just a bit.

We have Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Reverend White, Father Pfluger, Louis Farrakhan, and countless others of their ilk to thank for this situation.

The morass of the palestinian population in and around Israel is a similar phenomenon. The only joy the get out of life is killing Jews, or seeing Jews get murdered. The more innocent the victim, the better, and the more brutal the circumstances of the killing, the better. Their kill-lust far outweighs their love for their own children, or for their husbands and wives, in its meaningfulness to them. Their leaders have succeeded in separating them from their humanity and turning them into living weapons of war.

It seems the police could follow these animals on their “flash mob” organization tool and be there when they arrive.

I wonder how the community could fight them off in going to the aid of a victim.

The only thing I can think of is neighbors picking them off with a gun (which is probably illegal in Chicago) at a distance. It would take the fun out of the race bullying, aka, “flash mob” real quick. The police and Mayor would get real serious in beating them back then.

1) Someone in the “community” is “organizing” these thugs.
2) Confiscate their cell phones if they are caught and check their text and voice messages.
3) Pass a law that carries a mandatory jail sentence if a cell phone is used to coordinate these acts.
4) For the store “mob” robberies, equip the exit doors with a dye that doesn’t come off for days, no matter how hard they scrub. The kind banks use.
Make it White dye as that would be ironic and spray them with it as they leave, marking them and also ruining any clothing or other items they’ve stolen.
5) Ban these thugs from retail stores for a period of several years if convicted.
6) Before they change their tactics to home invasions, buy yourself a home-defense weapon if you don’t have one.
A Maverick 88, which is made by Mossberg and is basically a Mossberg 500 copy can be had for a little over $200.00, not including transfer fees.
