Progress

  • Chicago Police officials said they have identified some members of a suspected robbery crew accused of chasing a couple onto Lake Shore Drive over the weekend, leading to the death of a 32-year-old South Side woman.

    The department on Tuesday released high-definition CTA surveillance photos of the men who allegedly threatened to hold up Pamela Johnson and her 43-year-old boyfriend on the lakefront early Sunday.
Pictures at the link and at this one, too.

Nice to see the community step up.

I hope you get these people but any arrests will be muted. These assholes did not kill her so any charges filed by the SA are not going be any measure of accountability for her death in my opinion. This whole situation however is the kind of thing that happens often in the city and frankly, residents in Streeterville and other so called up scale neighborhoods.

Funny how the media didn't include a description of the mob and then video appears that shows what they were hiding. Those darn Amish youth sure are good at disguising themselves

Of those 10 savages that were out preying on people/folks at 2AM, how many live south of Roosevelt Rd and or west of Western Ave?

Watch the video and hear his heart wrenching side of the story. He actually gives credit to the officer who assisted him in saving his life. I've never had a problem protecting "these" people. It's "those" people that I really hate. And it has nothing to do with the color of their skin, but their actions instead. Screw you libs and screw you BLM!!

How come when the offenders are black the media describes them as a group of teens or a group of males. But when an incident happens between a WHITE police officer and a BLACK offender they spell that out to make the offender an innocent victim. And you wonder why there is a race issue.

In a display of ultimate stupidly, CBS 2 Chicago blurred the faces of the suspects. Political correctness run amok. SMH.

Are these guys on the SSL list....does the lack of manpower on CTA and the lakefront impact the ability to stop crime, arrest offenders---can the asshats at HQ computerize the nonexistent police into a list

Can't wait until they're arrested (some have apparently turned themselves in), and the mama's start saying:

"My baby didn't do nuffin... he was just walking along and then this mob came out and he got caught up in it..."

"My baby was trainin for the marathon - that's why he was running, he wasn't in no mob"

"Those people called my baby a racial name so he and his friends went after them to discuss the situation... "

"They were just clownin' and shit got outa hand..."

"If the people had just given up the stuff, this never woulda happened..."

"The people shouldn't have gone across the road - that's why they got hit..."

"My baby was tryin' to get out of the gang... he was going to community college to become a brain surgeon..."

Tips my ass! If they are a Marauding Hunting Party, it is obvious they took CTA to get up North! Did you think they were going to pay $30 to park near the lake? The same thing at Belmont, whenever there is an attack by Marauding Canadians; check the CTA cameras and you will see where they came from. The CTA is like a giant intestine that spews out shit all over the Northside. Baby"G"

Lets play a game, how about a reward dead or alive (prefer dead) on these thugs, could you imagine how quick "the community" would rid this city of these mayhem causing scum? The others that insist on mayhem would think twice the hunters become the hunted, lets bring the new York times reporters in on this could be a well paid reality series! "Chicago hunts" would be hands down better than the phony Chicago PD show!

The boyfriend in this tragic story gives credit to the police for saving his life. What happened to this young woman is horrible and I hope all of those responsible are caught.

Preckwinkle thinks there are too many young African American men in jail? This sorry group of African American men need to be in jail Toni. This young woman, an African American, is dead because of these predators. How many more people will be victimized by them? The boyfriend is alive only because of the quick intervention of the CPD.

Condolences to this young woman's family. I can't imagine how heartbroken they must be.

I hope the decent people, with morals and a conscious, keep coming forward to identify these criminals.

The old song "where have all the Cowboys gone" men many are feminized and cowards! Pastor said this past Sunday "this country is in serious trouble we can't even figure out proper bathrooms" reference to the federal law "I feel like a woman" and men using ladies restrooms! You see for example Louis Farrakhan people looking all badass not a fan but they intimidate the thugalicious punk maybe rahm ask them to " bust some heads" sorry "did I say that" best urkel voice!

CTA video one of the few projects that was done right over the years. Remember less then 10 years ago dealing with the retired Lt. or his partner the big guy that was in the bag pipe band and how they would say there's better cameras coming to the system.

The media still calling then "Young Men". They are criminals, suspects, person of interest, DEFINITELY not young men! Young men is just code for black thugs. I find this especially condescending to all black, AA who are hardworking young men.

Media call it what it is! criminals, suspects, person of interest

Good luck, when you're surrounded by 12. And you better hope the offender's gun doesn't run off when the shooting starts; otherwise your ass is grass. Here's a headline for you to try on "White male shoots at 12 black youths enjoying walk by beach. DOJ investigating civil rights violations."

You'll deplete your savings in your plight to clear your name.

Wake up citizens. Get behind YOUR police; otherwise it will get far worse before it gets better.

From the suntimes (or was it Trib) version of the story----the victims successfully ran across the northbound lanes and then were hit in the southbound lanes. Is this true???

doesn't that mean there were along the closed lakefront at 1:30am?

Yes call me a victim-blamer (if these facts are true). If you're in a space that's officially closed---you're on your own (falling into the lake/robbed, etc).

You can't stop all bad things from happening. But you're an idiot if you walk into unreasonable risks.

I hate to think k of the terror this poor woman must have felt to run into lake shore drive to get away from dangerous thugs. They never talk about black on black crime, how African Americans suffer the most from these thugs. They all need to be Locked up. I think there will be more shootings G's by police if they are not locked up. But maybe that is part of the plan?

How about some old school decoys (NOT hair gels but experienced U/C guys and gals) request assignment or temporary detail to curtail some of this mayhem with pro-active work in these areas?

Pay out the a__s for clout-contract HDTV surveillance gear, and when a TV station gets the results out to the public who might be able to help solve a killing, they blur the results.

Makes perfect sense.

Why not? Hollywood has remade plenty of classic movies, so it's about time for a Chicago version of West Side Story.
