Media Starts to Notice

Seeing as how a liberal arts college is worried, it must be safe to finally start to notice the "wildings" downtown:
  • The Flash Mob Offenders may be back around Loyola University Chicago’s Water Tower Campus.

    According to Campus Safety, about 70 teenagers stormed the McDonald’s at Chicago and State this weekend.

    Here are more details from an email sent out by Campus Safety:

    Loyola Community,

    This past weekend, a serious incident took place at the McDonald’s located on the corner of Chicago and State. Due to the establishment’s proximity to the Water Tower Campus, we want to be sure you are aware of the situation.

    On Sunday, a group of about 70 youths stormed the restaurant and created a disturbance. Approximately 10 Chicago Police Department (CPD) units responded and ultimately closed the restaurant for nearly three hours until peace was restored. Both CPD and Campus Safety believe this activity is related to the same group of individuals who have attempted to create havoc in the area before. In February, we alerted you to a similar incident in which these “Flash Mob Offenders” were allegedly committing thefts within local retail stores around the Water Tower Campus community. The offenders exit the Chicago Red Line stop, they go to various shops or restaurants, usually clothing stores, and then storm the stores, taking as many items as they can carry. The incidents seem to occur most often on weekends, between 5 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Golly. It sounds dangerous. But you have to go to the Loyola website to read anything about it since the media won't cover it. Or at least they haven't recently.

Dear tourist & visitors,
Welcome to Chicago! Come shop the beautiful Magnificent Mile, where the roving bands of thieves provide entertainment & excitement.
Imagine all the stories you'll have to tell when you get home, if you survive. And its all free, well except for medical expenses.
Ya'll come back now, hear?

The media is owned by corporations.

You can't be publishing stories like this -- why it may hurt retail sales from the tourist-o's and the advertisers will cancel their commercials.

Profits come first. Public safety is last!

My nephew goes to Loyola University. There is a large group of parents and individuals who reside in the area working with a newscaster about a documentary. The crux of the documentary will be the failure of the politicians and police to keep the citizens safe in a once crime-free area. The thugs are running wild in that area and there are no consequences for their behavior. If this problem is not corrected, there will be a lot of vacant rentals and Loyola students looking for a new university.

Could this be because Loyola and it's officials deal in reality while CPD brass deal in make believe?

CPD's comment was it's really no big deal, there were no arrests. WTF!! This pack of animals caused the McDonalds to close for 3 hours.

It seems nobody from the CPD or city officials want to acknowledge the 800 pound gorilla in the room: packs of African American thugs whose only goal is theft, mayhem and destruction.

You don't think that the fact that these "flash mobs" and " wildings" are occurring in the 1 st and 18 th districts have anything to do with the city's stance do you? We wouldn't want to warn or scare the sheeple.

The reasons these incidents are not reported on nightly news: not politically correct, the "reverends" would have a field day because,"the media paints the Afican American people in a bad light". Reason #2 da mayor would have a heart attack if the media would report on a bunch of thugs robbing and stealing on his precious downtown. These are a few obvious reasons. It would be nice to see these thugs exposed for what they are. Maybe now the liberals will see what we deal with and start supporting their Police Department. Be safe

To the unpublished Neil Steinberg fan:

Did you even read the fourth "paragraph" of the wife beater's column? We'll quote it here for your ignorant ass:

"Apparently this is nothing new."

So now that Neil has finally caught up to a story we've covered on-and-off for two summers, caught up simply because Loyola University put out a "student alert," the blog is the follower? Why wasn't Neil covering this when we wrote about it then?

Don't quit your day job asshat. We were so far ahead of the curve, we're about to pass you again.

As a citizen of Chicago I want to know, why is nothing being done about this problem? My brother told me he saw about 50 young black kids run into a clothing store and steal and walk out into their cars. Cars that were waiting for them. This happened in broad daylight as people were walking, dining, etc...

I feel for you cops though. Those that are on the streets, on patrol, driving around, etc... The state has taken away your authority and only decent citizens like me comply with your authority. While packs of thugs like these kids, gangsters, career criminals don't and just laugh away. Case in point, I heard that if someone takes off from you on a car, then it is almost certain that your captain or other boss will order you to stop chasing the bad guy and his car.

Got on the EB 66 bus at Bishop & Chicago early last evening and the driver says to me, "It's not even that warm yet and it's started." I said, "How do you mean?" He says, "There's a guy near the last stop laying on the street bleeding from a gunshot."

Evidently, this is going to be a bloddy summer.

It's a dead zone.

you come into town for a nice lunch with your son or daughter and make the mistake of leaving your purse hanging off the back of your chair or laying on the floor--- then the nightmare begins--- wallet and phone end up missing, you begin a frantic search of your immediate area--- with no luck you call 911 and are directed to the 311 arp unit where you will be asked if you saw anyone take your property--- if not, you will get a lost property case report--- if the copper who is taking the report is good, they will inform you to immediately start to cancel credit cards and put a fraud alert on your credit to protect against identity theft--- you go home and start to cancel your credit cards and find out that their have been thousands of dollars charged to your accounts since the property was "lost"--- now the real nightmare begins....

Talk all your shit about what you would do to these assholes if you worked in 018, but those of us who have worked here a while know the consequences of what you're suggesting=ending up in fucking federal court on a civil rights lawsuit. Almost every square inch of our district is on camera and every block has a bleeding heart liberal dying to see us doing the shit you think you could get away with here. This ain't the west side. Until the exempts and corp counsel comes up with a clear, legal way to handle these little bastards, I ain't doing shit besides locking them up on signed complaints and dispersals.

What I think you fail to realize is that, before they actually commit the crime, they are on paper, just minority juveniles "enjoying" a city area just like everyone else. We might all know and understand that in 20-30 minutes they are about to "McWild" or mass shoplift, or do an iphone robbery, but until they actually do it, our actions are under a fucking microscope. Believe me, if we could just grab these mutts preemptively and load up a wagon with them for being down there, I'd load up three of them per night with a big grin on my face.

If the rest of you hard chargers would like to come to 018 and lock up 20-50 juveniles a night for being black teenagers on the public way, be my guest. I somehow have my doubts the bosses or the state's attorneys will have your back.

I am a student and do not feel safe at all at the water tower campus.

Loyola rarely has any of their police officers at the downtown campus. They have armed police officers at the north campus.

What is an unarmed security guard going to do if a student is getting beaten by a mob of these kids?

I have only seen at least one armed Loyola police officer working during the afternoon shift, but never one on the midnight shift.

What do expect from Loyola, they sent one of their candidates to the police academy and we heard that he was crying on his first day at the academy.

I hope to be graduating this spring, because Loyola has no control of the area.

Moved out of Chicago three years ago. Took my wife, a native New Yorker, (I know feel sorry for me, she's a Yankee fan, but my point is she is not a pussy when it comes to street encounters) anyways we took our two kids (10 years old and 6 years old) down, took a walk along Mich Ave to Millenium back up to the Hancock. Had to push our way through two bullshit crowds. It used to be a nice place to take a walk, now, I saw it with my own eyes and I won't bother to come back there for a long time. My 10 year old who really is an honor student and football player can deal with these shitheads later in life if he wants, I can't stand to see him get shouldered and swore at with anti-white racial terms. Not worth the trouble to come back. Five/ten years ago you couldn't hardly walk down Michigan Ave because of the steady stream of people. Anybody notice there is hardly any foot traffic compared to what used to be there ?
Be safe to all Officers reading this.

Calling all 18th district officers! Be prepared for summer school break. There will be thousands of thugs on Michigan Ave, North Ave and Oak St Beaches, which will spill over to Rush St. The thugs will grab purses and IPhones off of the dinner tables outside and have gang fights over the "New Territory". Not to mention the Row Houses and Mashall Field Gardens.
Now any smart department would gear up for this "sure to happen event" and start hiring back police on their off days to shore up manpower. Oh, I almost forgot, the radios don't work inthe subway. Any 10-1 there and you're on your own. There will be gang clashes at State and Chicago Ave Station. You heard it hear first.

I take that back, animals only attack when they feel threatened, these kids are like a plague that has to destroy everything on Michigan ave. They come in hordes and disturb customers, harass store employees, and act like complete shit-heads.

We have a good relationship with the officers working the Ave. in the 18th district and I will tell all you police bashers that no one tries to stop these kids more then you guys at CPD. These officers are on foot almost their entire shift going from store to store making sure everything is o.k and we really do appreciate the help in grabbing these damn kids when they shoplift.

CPD and the Greater North Michigan Ave. Association need to work together to figure out a way to keep this plague from turning Michigan Ave. into the new west side.

you sir/man are correct.
so true. the revs and all the other bleeding hearts don't want to say that there are 30-40 black teenage thugs doing this. We all know who it is, but know one will outwardly say (the media) it. I would like to read a police report and see the description cited by the witnesses.
Daley should be calling this out in the media for public safety AND to declare war on this behavior.
What do we get? total silence. You can't tell me there's no video camera catching all these wilding from the Michigan Ave stores to Chicago/State area. Some store, or (POD?) has this on video and none of this is being released.
Power to the parents and any concerned citizen who gets down and dirty on this and make them expose the cover-up.
Lastly, nothing will be done until someone famous/connected gets hurt or becomes a victim.

Pretty soon there will be random "beat-downs", innocent people not just getting pick-pocketed, purse swiped, or robbed, but beating for no apparant reason (honor-student style), just because they are thugs and they know they can basically get away with it. When it becomes fatal, then it will hit the papers, and then MAYBE the brass and city hall will do something, because they are forced to do something.

"Nipping it in the bud" just ain't their style, they got to wait to full crisis mode, and the negligence and turning away will come to light making us all once again look like idiots.

Loyola's alert said that they will beef up security downtown. I wonder how beefed up they will get. There is one armed guy there at night, just one. On most nights there are only a total of 4 officers on the campus.

Interesting that they are finally taking notice even though these flash mobs have been hitting Michigan Avenue for weeks.

Now Loyola is finally taking notice, even though they didn't feel the need to send out alerts about the shootings in 24. And it took them days after the beating of a man for his phone, just feet away from the downtown campus, before they sent out an email warning students to be more alert.

About time these people start pulling their heads out of their asses. This should be plastered all over the news, then maybe people will start being more alert and make it more difficult for these thugs to pull this shit anymore.

018 Cop you are 100% correct. I work in 015 and most of my fellow coworkers talk too much shit. They talk about "I would lock them up". For what? For acting like assholes? For acting rude?

If they commit a crime, then yes, they are fair game. And even if that happens, we are outnumbered and so it wouldn't be wise to just jump in to a crowd to affect an arrest.

This is a lose/lose situation. These kids were doing this type of stuff last year and now summer hasn't even started and they are doing it this year.

OR have a wagon gassed up and ready to roll and have all your tact teams snatch up all these groups the second they commit any kind of MCC violation, even of it means getting pimpy for a whole summer. Heck, we've all had to do it at one point when u realized you had nothing after chasing joe for 4 blocks. Lots of bs charges to lock em up for. Better yet, make Michigan ave a hot spot so they can be dispersed. State street in the loop was a hot spot for a little while, and now lower wacker is a hot spot where all the homeless sleep.
People need to grow some balls and know what to look for. Can't claim civil rights violations when u see them cross the street against traffic signals and therefore "obstructing traffic ".

We have a good relationship with the officers working the Ave. in the 18th district and I will tell all you police bashers that no one tries to stop these kids more then you guys at CPD. These officers are on foot almost their entire shift going from store to store making sure everything is o.k and we really do appreciate the help in grabbing these damn kids when they shoplift.

CPD and the Greater North Michigan Ave. Association need to work together to figure out a way to keep this plague from turning Michigan Ave. into the new west side.

Yes, You Sir are an 018th Dist Michigan Ave Foot Officer. You gave yourself away in the 2nd paragraph when you said "the officers working the Ave", instead of Michigan Ave. That is police lingo for 18th district officers. Then you go on to brag about how the foot men are on foot all day and go from store to store. How would you know that??? Stop the self promotion, because you are letting Michigan Ave get out of control. Stop shopping and eating and writing on the blog and lock someone up!

You know what is even worse? Try calling the 18th or the 1st district and just ask them if these type of incidents occurred in their districts? They will deny it!
________________________________

You sir are full of sh*t. Call me, I got a million stories like this for you. 18th and 1st district officers have been talking about this for months on the blog only to be told by the bad asses in the "fast districts" that they don't know what it is to be the real police. I did the west side and downtown is starting to remind me of what I thought I left behind.

Eventually some middle class family will be terrorized, and one of them will pull out a piece and pop a couple of thugs. Alvarez will try and prosecute(due to her denial of the U.S. bill of rights and also under pressure from the revs) and will provoke a middle class backlash that will explode in her and daleys face and end her chances of reelection and cause even more support for the 2nd ammendment. Just saying.

What about that family that was terrorized in their way to a White Sox game by a democrat? The democrat beat a couple of them with some chunk of metal, dad died I believe.

Where is he backlash against the democrats?

All you hear from these idiot exempts, go down there and be the police. GFU!!! How about you risk your livelihood to help out someone that will end up testifying against you in court?!!!
It goes along with EBs new strategy on dealing with gatherings. Anytime a gathering is observed the officer is supposed to notify the watch commander and make sure the gathering is disbanded. I'd need be msf or TRU can be called in to help. All police observing gathering and not addressing it will be held strictly accountable! The freaking hypocrites on this job make me sick. The only time accountable is in their vocabulary is when it refers to someone else.
They are all upset over the shooting in 4, where people were having a gathering/repass on private property and the district didn't break it up, resulting in 3 people getting shot and a 10-1.

19 PAUL.. No one wants to lock up these freaking mutts then end up babysitting them in the station while waiting for the Youth Detectives to show up. And you'll be lucky if you get a hold on one of their "guardians" to pick them up.

If there's only a Red/Blue line going to the Brookfield Zoo where these Animals belongs to.

a "gathering" on private property....in and of itself, is that illegal? backyard birthday or graduation parties? the infamous "repasts"? what law would be cited to order dispersal, or to effect an arrest? legal, constitutional? liability, anyone?

Calling it the Ave is a common term known to many citizens. My 70 year old mother calls it the Ave and she is not nor ever was the police. And funny thing I am the police and don't refer to it as the Ave (probably because I wouldn't set foot near there or anywhere downtown or up North) Anyway thanks Mayor Jagoff for fucking up this city!!!

Talk all your shit about what you would do to these assholes if you worked in 018, but those of us who have worked here a while know the consequences of what you're suggesting=ending up in fucking federal court on a civil rights lawsuit. Almost every square inch of our district is on camera and every block has a bleeding heart liberal dying to see us doing the shit you think you could get away with here. This ain't the west side. Until the exempts and corp counsel comes up with a clear, legal way to handle these little bastards, I ain't doing shit besides locking them up on signed complaints and dispersals.

What I think you fail to realize is that, before they actually commit the crime, they are on paper, just minority juveniles "enjoying" a city area just like everyone else. We might all know and understand that in 20-30 minutes they are about to "McWild" or mass shoplift, or do an iphone robbery, but until they actually do it, our actions are under a fucking microscope. Believe me, if we could just grab these mutts preemptively and load up a wagon with them for being down there, I'd load up three of them per night with a big grin on my face.

If the rest of you hard chargers would like to come to 018 and lock up 20-50 juveniles a night for being black teenagers on the public way, be my guest. I somehow have my doubts the bosses or the state's attorneys will have your back.

This quote is great. Poor you working in 018. Step it up and be the police and stop worrying about stupid shit. If not, transfer to the west/south side and we will remind you why you came on this job - pussy.

The media whores won't even identify a suspect's race. You have to look at the artist's sketch to see the perp is black.
The flash mobs will run into a couple that are packing heat, and then we'll hear how the mean, deadly white folks committed genocide by sending two of these fools to hell. The bosses have to green light and support street cops for cleaning their beats!
Our parish priest was knocked down at LaSalle st. station 3 weeks ago, the flower he was taking to his Mom were grabbed. A neighbor's el train was robbed at 6PM, all the women's jewelry was taken at gunpoint last week near Jefferson Pk. Both times suspects were black. Neither time made the news.

My nephew goes to Loyola University. There is a large group of parents and individuals who reside in the area working with a newscaster about a documentary. The crux of the documentary will be the failure of the politicians and police to keep the citizens safe in a once crime-free area. The thugs are running wild in that area and there are no consequences for their behavior. If this problem is not corrected, there will be a lot of vacant rentals and Loyola students looking for a new university.

4/14/2011 01:23:00 AM

Make sure you get it right! We the police love to just sit around with our hands tired behind our backs while these idiots run wild in the streets. The problem is the same people working with this so called newscaster are the reason why these idiots can get away with it. If only you soft as puppy shit liberals would shut up back up and let the cpd do it's job we would take care of it. And then you and your people can then get with the same newscaster and complain about how the cpd is too rough on the little angels..wah!

I work at Loyola. I can tell you that in the past week since this incident occurred, our Campus Safety officers have beefed up their patrols at the Water Tower Campus, and have also been spotted stationed at other areas AROUND campus, such as Rush St. and Chicago Ave. The Campus Safety officers are patrolling the Water Tower neighborhood because the Chicago police have failed to do anything about it. The police department is down thousands of officers and the brass fail to distribute resources where they are needed. And, for reasons I will never understand, the media refuses to cover this stuff. What is it going to take? Something horrible is going to happen downtown some day very soon, and the Chicago cronies won't be able to ignore it anymore. It shouldn't have to come to that.

Quick question fellas-

As I get up in age and the dangers continue to grow, I am finally coming to grips with the fact that I wouldn't stand a chance if a pack of Red Line savages decided to feast on me. What self-defense weapons can I carry on my person legally in the city of Chicago?
Thanks and thanks for protecting old codgers like me.

I guess you still don't get it. Our hands are tied because we get no backing from the liberals as well as the CPD brass. We like our house and families and don't want to risk losing it when we are not backed 100%. Also, remember our brass and that loser Weis told you crime is down (ha ha) and the media is not allowed to report this shit because they are run by Dickhead Daley.

One more thing. I wonder if the know it all's like the wannabe at 12:55 realize that the liberals in this city had the law regarding our ability to charge a 17 year old as an adult has been changed raising the age to 18? The one good tool we USED to have taken away from us because the liberals felt bad for the "youths", the same ones pillaging and plundering on the BLVD? How's that little change working out for you?

These thugs understand one thing and one thing alone. Force. And when you arrest the police for doing what needs to be done can you see how this problem on Michigan Ave. will only get worse?
To the residents of Michigan Ave. and the staff and students at Loyola. You reap what you sow. You have made it clear what kind of Police Department you want by electing the type of people who elect and re-elect. This is what happens when you put liberal democrats in office.
