Who Said This Could Be Published?

  • Her car damaged, her nerves shaken, the victim of an alleged group attack near the University of Chicago campus with her children in the back seat of her car talked exclusively with ABC7 Eyewitness News about the incident Friday night.

    Police say two people were arrested and charged after the incident, but that woman says several dozen people were involved. Her two kids left covered in broken glass.

    The encounter left several dents in the vehicle, the back window shattered and Susan Pedersen shaken.

    "I'm very scared, very anxious, nervous. Just fearful," she said.

    Friday night, broken glass still litters the pavement at 60th and King Drive across from Washington Park, where the attack took place around 9 p.m. Thursday night.

    Pedersen says she had just dropped off a friend at the University of Chicago, with her daughter and son in the back seat. She said she stopped at a red light and found herself surrounded by several dozen young people.

    "They were walking around both sides of the vehicle - in the front, in the back - and as they were walking across, they were hitting my car, using racial slurs and telling me that I didn't belong in their neighborhood because I was white," Pedersen said.

    The group, all African-American, she says, kicked the vehicle and shook it violently, the kids in the back screaming.
Seriously? A pack of black teens pretty much destroying a car on a public highway because the occupants were white? What kind of world do we live in where a man dressed as a bat.... (sorry about that ....continuing).... where the media is allowed to report this sort of thing? Next thing you know they'll be telling everyone that something like 95% of black homicides are committed by another black person...and if word of that gets out....

On the bright side though, only misdemeanor damage to property charges were approved. No hate crime here!

Of course there was no hate crime. How could there be, they were black, an oppressed minority, they could not commit a hate crime. Only white devil supremacists and oppressors can do that. I am sure she committed some deeply offensive act to cause these youths to admonish her. Many whites seem to forget that blacks are no longer chained on the white plantation.

You can almost hear Anita Alvarez saying, "There ain't no way this office is going to charge a group of black teens with a hate crime against a suburban white woman and her children. No effin way."

What would Preckwinkle say? Rahm? CNN? It would be national news.

This way, as a misdemeanor, it stays quiet. no one will know about it. the media won't follow it. the judge, wink wink, will somehow throw out the case: victim is 30 seconds late, there's a continuance (but then the continuance date is changed and no one tells the victim), no p.c., bad identification. maybe the victim, when she shows up at misdemeanor court, and finds herself surrounded by the very people who attacked her, will walk out of court and then the case gets dropped.

Not so FAST, SCC..... I watched some great videos at True News and now they are taken down. WHY?

Someone at YouTube too politically correct to keep them up or is it because they don't want the truth coming out as to the way some of these people act in society??

What happened to Freedom of Speech?

One video was of a mother and daughter being jumped and beaten at a fast food restaurant by other teens. The other, was of a large woman, berating and swearing at a cashier at McDonalds while she was banging on the counter and whipping around anything she could get her hands on.

I think both videos exemplified the common behavior that people should see so they can understand what really goes on in the ghetto. (Oooops,I mean urban area)

Notice how I refrained from using any color when describing these "people". I tried to be as "politically correct" as I could - just like our great, local TV channels.

I would love to see and hear Goudie, Marin, Majers, and others describe it the way it should be described - these people were Chimping out, big time.

Now tell True News to somehow get those videos back up. NO ONE should be filtering the News.

No hate crime? Not according to our formal streaming video hate crime educational training! When a person is assaulted/attacked based solely on his/her racial, ethnic, religious, etc. identity, it is a hate crime. Victim even states they shouted racial slurs during the incident and said she didn't "belong in their neighborhood because she's white". Had this been a group of white kids doing this to a black driver, it would be national news. Same is true for the white guy who was beat to a bloody pulp by a group of blacks in Ohio. Only Hannity and Meagan Kelly have been covering the story, while the rest of the media covers the great SC flag controversy of 2015. What a joke.

Took a report awhile back for a woman who was battered on a cta train by a m/1 offender. Offender used racial slurs and made it very clear to victim this was being done because she was white. I made it a hate crime and sent to my m/1 Sgt who then kicked it back and told me to change the classification to simple battery. After changing it I sent it back but included the line...this report was initially classified as a hat crime but Sgt nameless #1234 asked for it to be changed. He wasnt too happy with it and wanted the added line removed. I refused. I am assuming it was eventually approced because I never heard anything more about it.

Boy, this brings back a lot of ugly personal and collective memories of similar behavior.

I am going to have to try to dig out a newspaper column which I believe was entitled "Growing Up White In Chicago." Mike Royko? Bob Greene? Anyone remember?

2014 slipped by unnoticed. Rahm Emanuel and Redmoon Theater could have put on a great festival.

"HateFest Golden Jubilee -- 1964-2014 -- Fifty Years Of Unbridled Black Racism In Chicago."

In the "Changing Neighborhood" finale, the Redmoons could have used their kayaks to tow a giant mockup of a moving van down the river...perhaps with rows of burning stores on a barge to provide dramatic illumination.

Now, now, everyone clam down. There's nothing to see here so kindly move along. This is a non-story as a 'few' urban youth may have got a little excited and vented a little pent up energy.

These 'youths' certainly didn't mean any harm to anyone and certainly did not cause any damage to this lady's car, and for sure they'd never use any racial taunts. But even if the did do these horrible things that are alleged -- it wasn't their fault.

Nope, it was caused by the Racist Republicans. It's the Racist Republicans who've cut all funding for 'Jobs Programs' in Black communities. It's the Racists who stopped funding for 'After School Activities'. It's the Racist Republicans who put an end to 'Midnight Basketball'. So put the blame where it belongs; The Republicans Did It!

Hell, this racist white lady probably damaged the car herself just to make Black 'Youths' look bad.

In a public speech, the Pope called for a world-wide, communist-style re-distribution of wealth.

It was not so long ago that the late great Pope John Paul II, as the leader of the Catholic Church, helped to bring down the evil Communist government of Poland. Now, under Pope Francis, the Church has made a 180-degree turn, EMBRACING Communism.

And maybe a hate crime COULD have been charged if the prosecutor can establish that the victim was selected because of race.

Good point. Generally to charge a hate crime you need to have proof that the victim was selected because of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc. Whether to charge it is the prosecutor's call. On the other hand, the police have the duty to gather sufficient evidence to support asking for one.

"I'm not a police officer" is obvious. Like the other poster said, if you were a police officer you would know about felony review. Police are free to charge anyone in Cook County with misdemeanors, but when it comes to felonies you have to call felony review and have some snot nose, "came in last in his law school class" States Attorney second guess you. They don't charge based on the facts of the crime, they charge based on the likelihood of winning.

Last sentence says it all; no hate crime here. This web troll has always been pissed about hate crime law. It is politically motivated garbage that in my opinion violates the equal protection clause of the constitution and application of law. Different people have different standards of justice applied to them. What? Yes, in violation of the constitution. Michael Brown, the overgrown maggot who was justifiably killed attacking a uniformed policeman in a marked police vehicle recived special consideration by the justice department solely because he was black. Obama was directingly the Eric Holder crusade. Meanwhile Kate Steinle received NO consdieration because she was white and this lady and her kids are a non story because they to are white. These hate laws only breed contempt and hatred for government among those of us who consider government the enemy of ALL free people. Any government in any land and any people. Special laws for special people is not equal protection for all of us. Get it?

Criminal Damage to Property?! I'm not a police officer, and please don't get me wrong, I am totally supportive of the vast majority of you guys and gals. But I am so unhappy with CPD and the system and how it works in Chicago.

To the officers who arrested, couldn't this have been coded as a PUBLIC PEACE VIOLATION: MOB ACTION? IUCR code 3100. It's right there on CPD's webpage!

Also note, coding it this way would have made it a CLASS 4 FELONY.

If you need to know...

(720 ILCS 5/25-1) (from Ch. 38, par. 25-1)
Sec. 25-1. Mob action.
(a) A person commits mob action when he or she engages in any of the following:
(1) the knowing or reckless use of force or violence
disturbing the public peace by 2 or more persons acting together and without authority of law;

Who's side are you on???!!!

We have a thing in Cook County called Felony Review. Most felonies have to be run by a Assistant States Attorney (ASA) This ASA usually cannot make a decision without calling a felony review supervisor. This supervisor, who is always a political hack, then makes the decision. The rest of the state outside of Cook County goes by Probable cause and does not have to jump through hoops to get felony charges. Cook county goes by whether they can win the case on a slam dunk and if it politically correct to do so. (See not charging Blacks with hate crimes for example Or always hitting the Police Officer with the highest charge even when the evidence does not support it.) The ASA does not follow the law and uses this thing they made up called Prosecutorial Discretion. The Judges, ASA's, defense Attorneys and Criminals do not have to follow the law in Cook County, only the Police have to.

I hope this answers your question. People seem to forget that the Police are only one part of the legal system. We are the most visible so thats why we get the blame when something goes wrong.

The two who didn't scatter and were arrested are juveniles. Short of murder, it is no big deal. Not much will happen to them. Likely they will lie their way out of it. Sad to say but that's the way it is. Baby mamas will blame it on the white lady.

I have been retired for a wihile, so i may be wrong, but if felony review turns it down can' t you request the deputy to "overide" the decesion and make the charge a hate crime? I understand the deputy may not approve it but at least you have a name. If you get felony review's name and the CPD Deputy's name give it to the news. See what they do? Who knows, maybe, just maybe, someone will have to answer some questions. Just a thought.

In theory Felony Review is a good idea -- get the prosecutor involved in the case early. Done right, it helps weed out the garbage and also helps improve the cases that need attention and should be prosecuted aggressively. That's the theory.

In practice, however, senior prosecutors with experience -- those that ought to be giving the guidance -- are seldom doing Felony Review. Often experienced coppers know more than the still somewhat green lawyers who are.

I was in England and saw how their system works. The "Crown Prosecution Service" has prosecutors in the field similar to Felony Review. They don't charge every case but have to explain, in writing, their decisions and a copy goes to the constable. And if they need more to make a case they send back a checklist. They also have guidelines for charging (and not like if it's under or over so many grams, etc.) which basically say things like minor matters are minor and serious shit is serious shit but something that seems minor might be major to the people in the neighborhood and public policy might favor aggressive prosecution. Very impressive unlike Felony Review which is like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates: you never know what you're going to get.

You seem to have no idea how Cook County works - the police don't get to make that decision. It's made by Anita Alvarez and her people under the guise of "Felony Review." If they say no, then they insert the misdemeanor charge. The police department has nothing to do with it. Direct your ire elsewhere

Good point. Generally to charge a hate crime you need to have proof that the victim was selected because of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc. Whether to charge it is the prosecutor's call. On the other hand, the police have the duty to gather sufficient evidence to support asking for one.

Not juveniles. That is on the Youth Dick…which takes away from all the anger towards the prosecutors. What do you call bottom 5% of the police academy? Officer.

Less than two miles from Obama residence , less than a mile from presidential library , where is the roof top reverend , Bobbie rush , rev. Jackson , father Flagler and all the alder creatures . No comments when criminals attack a helpless white lady and two young children .
This is considered normal behavior for teens in that area . Bet those kids are searching for their daddy , raised by grandma , baby mama on welfare . Another democratic success story .

Well, you know for damn sure if the media deigned to finally report something like this, it's probably happening enough that they can't possibly keep a lid on it anymore. It surprises me not one bit. What does surprise me is that she didn't run their stupid asses over! Hey, her life and her kids were in danger. Fuck those animals (no offense to animals).

Misdemeanor of Felony, it doesn't matter if they were Juveniles. Juvenile court is a joke. The Judges there let kids out who have multiple warrants. You can arrest the same kid 2 to 3 times a week, he can get detained, and be let out the next day. But hey, Toni Prekwinkle thinks too many blacks are in jail. She seems to forget that over 90 percent of the time other blacks are the victims. And since the victim in this incident was white, well, I'm sure Toni thinks she deserves it because of her "White Privilege."

Improper and racially discriminatory Investigation by Crook County States Attorney and CPD. Vote ALL democrats ( Communists) and ALL RINO's Out of Office.

Alvarez should be ashamed of herself and resign immediately, along with the CPD Bosses who concurred with her Office on this biased , politically corrupt investigation and decision. A Mother and her small children terrorized for absolutely NO reason, by these Savages and this petty misdemeanor charges are all they come up with? Guess What, Alvarez? You just poured Gasoline on a Fire. The next innocent White Family will now be seriously injured or killed thanks to your actions. Their Blood will be on YOUR hands, Alvarez and CPD Coward Bosses. And Yes, you ARE all Cowards. You should All be ashamed of yourselves and resign immediately. You are not Protectors and Guardians of the Public's safety. You are Cowards, and a disgrace to Law Enforcement Officers Everywhere.

You're a "scared" female with a back seat full of tender-age
children?

Tear that car the fuck up on the asses of those savages clawing
and biting at the door handles trying to get in the car WITH you
and yours...

You Tube video from a while back showed some people driving
through a game reserve somewhere in Africa and a LION managed
to mouth open an unlocked door...

...

Who, if anybody, in that car,
did NOT shit the elastic out of their undies
when that happened?

"It's YOUR hide.
How much do YOU value it?"

Stop being nice. Stop being soft and stupid.
Stop thinking that good people aren't supposed to fight back.
Arm yourselves...
Get mad. Be mean.

Or reconcile yourselves to being forcibly bent at the waist
and hoping against all hope that the unmerciful will
somehow see you worthy of mercy in these bad urban
encounters.
