The Truth

Chicago, IL

This is the same reason that the beaches were closed. The flash mob black youths enter the city from the Red Line on State Street. It is absurd that the police are not present 24/7 at the State Street and Chicago Ave intersection. All exits from this station should be recorded by HD video surveillance.

Today there were cops at each corner around 6:30 but by 7:30 there was zero police presence but mobs of young black youths loitering, yelling, swearing, and using the "N-Word"repeatedly. They were intentionally getting in the way of pedestrians to try to initiate fights. Arrests or citations can easily be made for loitering, j-walking, pandering or mob activity but the police just watch it happen. It is PATHETIC THAT THE POLICE DO NOT PATROL CHICAGO AND STATE 24/7. THE CITY SHOULD BE SUED BY THE NEXT VICTIM DUE TO THIS BLATANT DISREGARD FOR OUR SAFETY. 911 needs to be called whenever one witnesses potential mob activity by these bands of obnoxious, unruly black teenagers. By calling 911, the problem gets documented and the city becomes responsible.

All offenders were black and no victims were black. These crimes need to be prosecuted as a hate crimes. There needs to be a whole police unit combing the red line in the Chicago and State area. HD video of the exitsneeds to ber performed and loitering laws need to be enforced. Seriously, make it a misdemeanor indecent exposure to wear your pants below your a$$ and that will give the police the ability to question and cite these offenders

Business leaders need to put pressure on city hall and PD to quit being in denial and address this very serious problem.

Will be just one more reason not to go into the city this summer. Families are already scared. Why pay all that money for parking, high taxes, etc. only to get beat up by thugs who are allowed to get away with it? I'll pass.

RAHM: address the problem, tell us how you are making the streets safer and maybe we'll head on down.
