Right Across the Street

  • A quick-thinking clerk at a Loop Office Depot used her store microphone to alert customers and fellow workers that she was being robbed, and the robber ran out the door empty-handed today, police said.

    The robber then ducked into a subway station and minutes later entered a Fannie May Candies shop across from City Hall, where he displayed a gun wrapped in a newspaper and made off with $350.

    The man escaped in a cab and was still at large this afternoon. No one was hurt in either hold-up.

Broad daylight. Where was the mayor's body guard detail this time? C'mon guys. You're falling down on the job.

The Sun Times calls it a "Loop candy store," completely ignoring the fact that it's across from the seat of city government. Can't have the Olympic committee thinking it isn't safe.

Then he would have gone crazy on them like he did on the officer who arrested the murderer in Michigan. They are there to be Daley's slaves, go to the store and get milk, go get coffee, go to Blockbuster for Daley's kids, drive maggies drunk friends home, pick the drunks up for lunch, take Daley to the Chicago club to get drunk with the Palumbos, the list goes on and on.....

Has every media outlet been strong armed by Chicago 2016 thru Daley? Doesnt the media exist to serve the public good?

Seems they get out the Thesaurus and edit stories to make it seem that crime isnt as bad.
