Now the cops in Chicago are getting pissed off that the media is ignoring black mob violence downtown.
I received an email from a Chicago cop saying so.
This from the Great Blog: Second City Cop:
If the media doesn’t cover it, did it actually happen?
The fireworks downtown were a complete disaster again tonight, but I’m sure we’ll all hear about what a smashing success it was tomorrow morning. The terrorists were running around in large packs with multiple citizens relating that these cannibals were throwing M80’s at the good citizens that were actually willing to spend their hard earned money in crime ridden Chicago. Not only were the groups throwing explosives at people, but it wouldn’t be a weekend in downtown Chicago unless they conveniently renowned iphone and handbags from their owners. My favorite part of the evening was when a sergeant asked the officers stationed at the Oak Street Beach entrance at Michigan avenue to push back the group to prevent then from reaching the beach, the officer calmly stated “there’s only me and one other officer, so I don’t think that’s happening.” What a circus.
If it was a circus, more people would be laughing. Here, the clowns are in charge, not the ringmaster.
More reports from Second City Blog:
THOUSANDS of M/1 and F/1 yutes roving about Chicago Ave in the hours after the fireworks, creating their own special brand of mayhem. All the chaos appeared to be in perfect sync with the “plan” rolled out by The Command Staff. AND not enough trains or buses to move the plague back to the south and west sides…welcome to the new 4th o’ July!
In the hours before and after the fireworks, there were scores of i-phone and property reallocations along the lakefront between Ohio and North Ave. A “lady” was stabbed at the Lincoln Park baseball fields. At Chicago and State, overheard an out-of-towner say “looks like the 47% is at it again…” game over — Chicago lost this one BAD.
The group of 30+ male blacks that were punching and pushing everybody down to take their phones was crazy. People were falling down to the ground in the fetal position to prevent these robberies from occurring. I would say the ratio out there was 1 PO to 5000 people.
PEOPLE, PEOPLE, DO NOT come downtown if you value your life, your child’s safety or any property that you are carrying! Last nite 18 had the worst infestation of ghetto rats that we have ever seen in all our years on the job. Besides creating general havoc in every corner of the district they pummeled good citizens, looted numerous convenience stores, were throwing fireworks at families, fighting everyone that got in their way and stripped countless individuals of any valuables they carried. Don’t recall any shootings but did hear of a few stabbings.
Complaining of a lack of manpower is fruitless at this point. The vermon has taken over the Mag Mile and surrounding area and all we can do to protect the citizenry and tourists is to strongly suggest that they DO NOT come downtown!
Then followed up by another great news source in Chicago doing ten times the work — quantity and quality — with 1/100 the resources.
Shedrick was walking through Water Tower Park, between Pearson Street and Chicago Avenue, with several other men and women Friday evening when he loudly screamed, “F— the police,” according to court records.
Shedrick then ran onto Michigan Avenue, jumping and flailing his arms in the middle of traffic. When police officers told him to stop, Shedrick responded, “F— you. You ain’t so tough. Say it in my face,” records state.
The teen then headed West on Chicago Avenue, this time on the sidewalk, but still flailing his arms and jumping side to side. Pedestrians were forced off the sidewalk and into the street with traffic by his behavior, according to court records. Shedrick was arrested just before 10 p.m. Friday.
FINALLY THE TRIBUNE WEIGHS IN:
It was about ten minutes into the fireworks displays on a lake shore crowded with families, seniors, and strollers, when Gary Dailey began noticing a large group of people who were “screaming and yelling and scaring everybody,” Dailey said.
Dailey said “everybody was getting uncomfortable” including himself and he became one of many who began moving away from them, Dailey said.
Dailey said his intention was to go underneath the tunnel and watch them from the other side of the street. But there was a problem.
There were about 40 people backed up in the tunnel, including a rowdy group that was “roughhousing in the center of the tunnel,” Dailey said.
it goes on. No context. No nothing. Cue the columnists about how it is our fault for not providing better schools, better housing, better jobs, better sidewalks, better parking.
You know the drill.
These are just some of the hundreds of examples of racial violence and lawlessness in more than 80 cities around the country as documented in my book: White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America.
Thomas Sowell said : ”Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.” – National Review.
