28 arrests after downtown disturbance, El attack
Chicago Tribune ^ | March 31, 2013

Posted on 03/31/2013 5:09:54 AM PDT by RugerMini14

Nearly 30 people were arrested downtown on Saturday night for disturbances that ranged from bumping into passersby on sidewalks to attacking passengers aboard a CTA train, authorities said, citing preliminary information.

Seventeen of the people in custody -- all but two younger than 18 -- were charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro.

Those arrests happened on the Magnificent Mile near North Michigan Avenue and East Erie Street between...

Thinking of visiting the Windy City this summer? Don't. Unless "youth" mob action is your thing.

Fella Dancerella and his police chief (rabid anti-2A political hack) Garry McCarthy have neither the will, nor probably the means, to control the Amish youth of Chicago.

It doesn’t matter unless they are willing to prosecute and actually hand out ten to twenty year sentences. This one-year and out scheme....doesn’t work.

Wow!

When I go to Chicago I almost always stay at one of the Marriott properties on the Magnificent Mile!

Well, looks like it is the Financial District from here on out...

My thoughts exactly. Why even bother to arrest these little punks? Wrist slap, don’t do it again and we’ll see you at the midnight basketball game sure doesn’t seem to work very well. Maybe they should track the names and see which ones end up shot within the next year. Not that they could be in a town where guns aren’t allowed. Nice way to celebrate Easter huh? Of course maybe they were just trying to meet new and interesting people. Were any assault rifles confiscated?

Even you correctly guess the skin color, what’s your point? You think they suddenly behave well when they’re at home? Our system of helping the poor hasn’t helped. We now have generations of Dem voters who vote to give away money with no accountability. Half do it out of guilt and the other have think they’re “entitled” to it. While the wolves figure out how to spend the working sheep’s money, the kids grow up with no education, no future, and little sense of self-worth.

The citizens of Chicago think this is OK so they won’t vote their loser leadership out of office. Don’t work, spend your money in, or live in Chicago (or anywhere in IL).

Just for reference here...gang bangers in Chicago don’t use assault rifles. They are dedicated pistol-owners. Chicago cops will tell you that Chicago would be going to heck in a hand basket if they ever switched over, but they have no interest in assault rifles. “too much luggage to lug around”.

Avoiding IL. Yup. When we moved from FL to NV we took a northern route but deliberately avoided passing through IL since there “may have been” some items in the trunk that were, let’s say, something you didn’t need to be stopped with in IL.

I think the most disturbing part of the story is the following:

The 11 teens, all but one of whom are younger than 18, told police they had agreed on Twitter to meet downtown. It appeared that several of those arrested had not met in person before Saturday, authorities said. [emphasis added]

LOL! Dang dude. That’s alot of points. Hell, I’d stay there too if I had that many. Must have been hyatt I was thinking of but as far as pritzker (possibly our future sec. of comm)I wouldn’t support anything she is involved in.

Okay, I just checked and it is/was hyatt she was involved with. Not owns. On the board.

Roger that. But didn’t moochelle antoinette recently state that the young lady shot just after hearing king hussein was killed by a bunch of kids with an assault rifle? I mean, according to the anti’s, they are responsible for millions of youths being killed and wounded every year. (I think it was charlie rangle that said that.) I guess you can’t believe the press after all. LOL!

Good point. Anyone who has been stuck behind someone using a SNAP card to buy a grocery cart full of soda, chips and giant packs of ribs from the meat department knows they flash “Insufficient Funds” when the money’s gone.

All the boards on all the big companies are polyglots. Let’s face it, after a certain point in wealth, the rich are no longer are affected by their desired policies and decide to go for the running people’s lives with as much control as possible=liberal.

Yeah, too many points and too many nights. I am getting close to 3 million AA miles as well (also Platinum for life).

It's a good thing these lucky youngsters have all those free ObamaPhones. Otherwise, they wouldn't be able to call 911 or get a job!

Just wait until they really want to get a mob together and have some fun!

If a real thinking person who actually desired to end this insanity in Filthydelphia/Chicago/LA etc, why wouldn’t they; ban all organizations that promote murder, and gangs that require the members to commit a felony as a requirement for admission?

Why wouldn’t they put anyone who committed a gun crime in prison for life?

The reason they don’t do it now is because RATs want the statistics to use as a manufactured crisis to leverage disarming the citizens, and other components of their “social engineering” agenda.

NY, Chicago and LA are at the bottom of a list of 90 districts regarding the prosecution of federal firearms violations.

In 1962, a classical psychology experiment put too many rats in a limited area, overpopulation, where they developed all sorts of antisocial and destructive behaviors. It is called the “behavioral sink experiment”.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behavioral_sink

However, there has been no experiment conducted with rats, to determine how rats raised in an antisocial environment behave with rats who were raised in a social environment.

This is essential for another reason. Children who are raised by a heterosexual married couple are raised in a “success” track, oriented to improving their lives; whereas children who are raised by a single parent are raised in a “survival” track, which means they are 60% more likely to criminally offend.

Likewise, “survival track” children will affiliate with each other as a better survival strategy, affiliations that are sub-tribal, like street gangs. That is, such children are so socially devolved that their group aspiration is to become a tribe, even though tribalism is at the very low end of social order.

In situations where social people are in the proximity of the antisocial, while the antisocial group will be able to attack or even kill an individual, with any organization, the social people will quickly crush the antisocial group, unless they make an effort to not do so.

On the grand scale, this is why civilization almost invariably defeats barbarism, unless that civilization has so eroded from within that it is near spontaneous collapse.

On the lesser scale, it describes what happened to Detroit, and what is happening to Chicago and a few other places that are surrendering civility to the law of the jungle.

I was, just yesterday morning, pondering on the type of summer we might see. Where i live, people are avoiding the downtown area after dark and all of the parks because of the new Amish game, “Knockout”. With luck we’ll see this thing spin hopelessly out of control in a spiral escalation into daily scenes of flash mob violence in Chicago and other metro areas.

The Chicago youths have a unique opportunity to shut down all of Chicago. When the rest of the nation recognizes a trip to Chi-Town has real risk, they WILL quit coming. That could not be glossed over or ignored by the MSM.

I think the idea that Rahm and Obama have is to destory Chicago first, as a blueprint for the country. With the help of the “church-social justice/community organizing “ organizations they have stirred up a nasty hornets nest of people ready for civil disobedience.
