I live in downstate IL but no longer have to fly in/out of O’Hare or venture into the city except when I choose to. As wonderful as “the city” is, the best part was always seeing it in my rear-view window.
Even if they committed felonies, who could identify them in court?

What’s the background on that comment...
It seems as if the youth gangs are coming up from the south side and the west side.
Are we allowed to say that they are black youth, or is that not allowed?????
It really is a nice area - been there many times as my relatives live there. It is safe for the punks because they are out of their element - in their own, they would be subject to knifings or drive by shootings. Cowards/punks who travel in packs!!
We shoot mongrel, rabid dogs, don’t we?
There was a time when lawless areas weren’t tolerated. Lawmen or the military would simply go in and clean it up.
Apparently kids grow up quickly in Tribune land...
Black Democrats paying back Rahm and his cohort for sidelining the black reverends during the mayoral elections. Yes, these incidents are loosely organized by the “community organizers.” Gang leaders and black politicians are nearly one and the same in some wards, and gangs use kids because the kids will get nothing but a slap on the wrist at worst.
It’s a whole new world now. This isn’t the 50s, 60s, 70’s 80’s or 90’s.It’s a world where the most violent people in the country are part of a protected class. It’s a world where aberrations like the lone wolf gunman in New York are major news stories, but the total breakdown of society like what happened in Chicago are, more or less, hushed up and ignored.
Come to ChicagoFREE STUFFFREE CRIME ZONE
...with the aid of "Obamaphones".
Seriously though, if the cops arrested 24, more than likely there were 35-40 or more. Let's say they were coming through the neighborhood bashing in car windshields. You watch them coming down the street from your window while on the phone with 911. They pass your house leaving their path of destruction. At the next intersection the cops come and round up a bunch. Do you honestly believe you could identify individual perps?
If you think it would be any different if they were to commit violent crimes, I have two words for you.
Wow, really bad news if tribal/drug-turf warfare is spilling over into the Miracle Mile!
Gotts ta love dem Chicago Values !
More people die a violent gun related death every single weekend in Chicago than died at the Colorado movie theater shooting yet not a word ! No moment of silence, not a peep from our President.
Not like it would matter anyway. Worst President EVER !
Guns are not the problem. We need to go back to the old west standard. Take a life, we hang you the day after the trial.
“Young People” more like young thugs.
“....or is that not allowed?????”
It’s not allowed, it’s not allowed!
That’s what I tell my cats sometimes, and definitely what the MSM tells their reporters.
I like the mangled phrase ‘Of those arrested, 20 were juveniles and four were adults after the incidents Saturday evening, police said.”
What, did 4 of the arrestees have birthdays while in custody and attain their majorities?
