Great. Now people need to wear riot face masks along with their bullet proof vest.

This is scary, she will probably be scarred for life in exchange for a couple bucks.
I hope they catch these low life scaggs.

Christ. This neighborhood will just never get better. I don't care how many condo conversions and police crackdowns there have been. Logan Square is simply too close to the Humboldt Park area for it to ever fully gentrify and move the scum out.

No one has commented on the race of the perpetrators but we all know the race, which is why you decided to lecture us right?
Well, here are some other crimes perpetrated by well, you know who, against, typical white people.
In Logan Square there is a pretty good chance they are either Puerto Ricans or white. Not a heck of a lot of black folks there.

So, I think the fact you got slapped down is pretty appropriate.

Too bad that if they catch the robbers, they can't punish them by throwing the same caustic substance in their face so they can know what it feels like.

Stop fantasizing!
You are really wrong.These aren't crimes against whites.
A little background on the last two acid attacks in chicago. Same victim.Yougn black female.
First was a group of young black males trying to abduct victim from her residence.Placed her in trunk and through acid on her.Victim was able to escape using emergency trunk release.
2nd time victim was approached on street by two females. one female offender holding a gun and one female offender holding the acid in container. Acid was thrown on victim directly hitting her face.
Victim was burned severely.

They are urban "hits" and not crimes against whites. Concealed carry is the only way to prevent these things from happening.

And FYI: The victim was the daughter of a Chicago Police Officer.

I previously left that comment because there were some horrible racits comments that have been removed from the comment board. Good riddance. And as a LIFELONG Chicagoan. Not a suburbanite and never will be, I know the diversity of the city and have seen crimes committed by ALL.

Chicago, yesterday my buddy and I took our pistols to the local range and shot. I worked on the double-action firing of my Walther PPK, and another smaller pistol. My friend shot his Western-style .45 single-action revolver, and his 1911 semi-auto carry piece. We took turns shooting each other's weapons, as well. It was a great afternoon.
Doesn't it bother you that YOU CAN'T do this? You're NOT ALLOWED! You should have the same rights as I do, but your stupid city prohibits you from being free enough, or responsible enough, to do this. If you don't want to be a gun owner, fine. But it is WRONG for the city to deny you this right. They have taken away a right without due process, thus treating you as if you were guilty of something.
It amazes me how so many in Chicago either don't care, or don't understand this basic concept.

Yeah they probably turned in their gun so now they've gotta go rely on caustic substances.

We should outlaw all caustic substances, including anything that could be used for homes. Then we outlaw anything else that can be used as a weapon.

Eventually all that people will have to commit crimes with will be their own bodies. At that time we will have to begin a mandatory eugenics program to make sure that everyone is physically and genetically identical, that way they can't have any unfair physical advantage.

While we are on that topic we're also going to have to prevent anyone from using their wits to commit a crime. People with an intelligence above a certain point will have to have portions of their brains surgically removed to bring them down to a "safe" level.

The victim should sue the City of Chicago for taking
her gun away and not being able
to defend herself.

Not a heck of a lot of whites live in Logan Square. More Mexicans and Spanish.

Spanish, huh? You mean Spanish-speaking people? Or people from Spain?

You haven't been to Logan Square in the last five years or so, have you? Things change. And there are very few Spaniards in Chicago.
