Mayor Rahm Emanuel said today that he agreed with the decision Monday by Chicago police to close North Avenue Beach after several people began showing signs of heat-related sickness.
The beach was closed about 6 p.m. after Chicago Fire Department paramedics were called to the beach to deal with several people who required medical attention.
At least four people were taken to area hospitals from the beach including one 18-year-old who was taken in serious-to-critical condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital during the Memorial Day holiday.

YUP. According to reports I read, the mounted cops were most effective against these "heat-crazed urban yutes."
Black woman called the Roe Conn show (WLS Chicago) and said that the mob was black teenagers. Maybe Obama is finishing the job on black youth and families that LBJ started in the sixties.
Color me surprised. NOT!
Eric Holder refusing to prosecute “his people”????
That beach is FABULOUS!!! It looks like you are on an ocean yet with all the big famous skyscraoers in the background!~! VERY COOL!!!
ALL Obama voters!!!
You are KIDDING, right??
I just starting smoking pot a year ago and look how it aged me, kids please don't start smoking pot....
I actually don’t understand this. I’m not black, so maybe I’m missing something.
Holder has clearly announced that black crime is OK (probably because he’s well off and doesn’t live in a black neighborhood, where 100% of the perps are...black) and it’s very possible that these kids are simply feeling they can do whatever they want now.
But what I don’t understand is why black Americans feel that they are not part of the American project and that, in fact, the best thing they can do is destroy everything around them...because any improvements must be the fault of the “white man.”
These folks have got to grow up and get a life. Their entire time on earth is spent in sullen resentment, hostility and a desire for ethnic separation and cleansing, promoted primarily by the Democrat Party and their lousy schools. Thus many of these “yutes” will die without ever realizing that they were, like anybody else, human beings made in the Image and Likeness of God. Hopefully, since God is merciful, they will also die without realizing that they have thrown it all away.
I would never go to North Ave. beach, never.
Too bad it is such a long drive to get to Haulover beach . . .
Sadly, that is too true.
The Second City Cop blog has a lot of good comments...
No. Not kidding.
