In Chicago the “teens” could probably be a bunch of Hasidic Jews or Boy Scouts running amok for all you could tell by the stories. The race of the majority of the kids is conspicuously left out- again. Even in one photograph of some arrests the angle almost prevents us from seeing who is getting hooked up.
—A weekend melee on the Magnificent Mile and a separate attack on a CTA Red Line train ended with 25 juveniles and three adults charged Saturday.
It all happened as Chicago flirted with spring weather for the first time this year. But police officials emphasized on Sunday that there were no reported robberies, assaults or property damage as a result of what happened on Michigan Avenue.
It is frustrating to me because I know so many blacks just as disgusted with this behavior as the rest of us. It will never get better because we’ve grown several generations of people who think being a thug is cool.
Sooner or later they’ll have a greater reason to cause trouble and no police force can resist the numbers that will come out of the woodwork to roam the streets and create violence.
Which is why citizens need to remain armed and prepared.
