Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Supt Garry McCarthy can kiss my white ass... Charging 7 black teens with only MOB ACTION? After the purposely selected a dozen or more white victims to attack & rob??? I hope the whites get smart and boycott the fuck out of Chicago & Downtown!
Seven juveniles have been charged with mob action following a series of muggings carried out Saturday night by groups of attackers, including one that left a tourist from Michigan hospitalized with a broken jaw.
As people streamed out of Grant Park following the close of the Chicago Blues Festival, a group of young people beat and robbed the 40-year-old tourist in the 500 block of North State Street just before 10 p.m.
The victim, who was in Chicago on business, according to a relative, was treated for a broken jaw at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
The juveniles, ranging in age from 13 to 16, have each been charged with three counts of mob action in connection with the attack. Charges are pending against one adult who has not been identified.
A second attack, which police believe to be unrelated, occurred about 30 minutes later near the Lake/State Red Line station in the 100 block of North State Street. A couple was accosted by an unknown number of suspects near the Chicago Theatre. A male victim suffered minor injuries and was also treated at Northwestern.
Police received a report of a third attack near the Gold Coast, but investigators hadn't determined the exact location or time.
The attacks occurred as city officials were preparing downtown for the upcoming festival season, including Lollapalooza, The Air and Water Show and the Taste of Chicago, which are expected to bring thousands to the city and generate millions of dollars in revenue.
