Another softball thinking he's the police....and gets treated exactly like the police come to think of it:
- A rookie Chicago alderman was attacked while trying to clear a South Side street of prostitutes, according to a source.
Ald. David Moore of the 17th Ward was punched in the 7500-block of South Peoria just after 3 a.m. Sunday when he reportedly responded to constituent calls regarding prostitution in the area.
Chicago police confirm a person called 911 to report the overnight attack as it happened in the city's Gresham neighborhood.
Police reports say a 49-year-old man was beaten after a verbal argument with another man. The attacker ran off but officers say they were able to track him down a short time later. The 22-year-old male is charged with aggravated battery to a public official and is due in bond court on Sunday.
An how exactly was the lady-of-the-evening supposed to know this was an aldercreature? That's the argument made all the time in court, usually when a plain-clothes officer gets assaulted, battered or worse. Maybe Mr. Moore should be making sure his district is adequately staffed and the resources are available to clear the whores off the street.
