Open Season on Everyone

  • A candidate running for Illinois attorney general was robbed at gunpoint while he was taking promotional photos for his campaign Thursday afternoon in the Northwest Side ward where he’s also the Democratic committeeman, according to his campaign manager and authorities.

    Aaron Goldstein, 42, and several members of his campaign team were in the middle of taking publicity shots when the robbery happened, according to Goldstein’s campaign manager. The robbery took place about 3:25 p.m. in the 4600 block of North Albany Avenue in Albany Park, when three men in their early 20s approached them, according to a law-enforcement source. One of the men flashed a handgun and demanded the camera equipment and other personal belongings from the team, according to police.

    The gunman and two other men robbed Goldstein and four others of camera equipment and their cellphones before they ran away, the law enforcement source said. As of Thursday evening, no one was in custody, police said.
And then the usual media reporting:
  • Police described the three suspects as between 20 and 24 years old. They did not release a detailed description of the suspects.
So if you see anyone between the ages of 20 and 24, call the police!

Thursday afternoon the temperature was well above 50 degrees. The chances of one of the multiple victims not noticing something as obvious as clothing or exposed skin tone is next to zero. Therefore a description exists. And if a description exists, it was broadcast in some form over the radio and in the form of a press release, especially with a political candidate being stuck up, unless the candidate asked it not be for some unknown reason.

“Police described the three suspects as between 20 and 24 years old. They did not release a detailed description of the suspects.“

So my thoughts is the PPOs on scene who were talking to the media, infact were a few social justice advocates themselves. And we all know social justice advocacy tends to belong to one political affiliation. It’s like why wouldn’t you release a discription of assholes—— believe me I am just being a democrat voter. The question in this article was entire bullshit

No no NO! I can explain...

This was not the work of an armed robbery crew.This was the urgent and necessary work of an Income Redistribution Team.And of course the victims - I mean the participants - played their part too.Did they not openly flaunt their support for an oppressive political system which disenfranchises young men and forces them to take such drastic action out of economic necessity?Of course they did.You see,we need to view this as part of a broader justice movement in which good is evil, up is down, and lima beans are catalytic converters. You're welcome.

Neither a learner nor an earner, Mr. Goldstein
at age 42 attempts to build a political career.
Instead, he enters the Chicago Twilight Zone.
In essence, he was flashing wealth: the suits,
the cameras, the entourage. Based on the date,
I would say a group of Orthodox youth who were
disappointed with their Christmas haul.
Time to contact Dr. Phil and get a statement as
to what would provoke this behavior in the youths.

Maybe they just borrowed the cameras to film a breaking story on a crime occuring a few blocks away. So don't jump to conclusions right away. I am sure there is an explanation for their actions. Even the police said it wasn't a targareted act.

So I guess he's not a CCL. Would have been great press if he or one of his party wasted the POS. That would have been the one democrat I could have voted for. Otherwise this news was like a breath of fresh air. Glad he got what he supports, to bad he was not wounded would have been an even better story. Maybe someday, really not a question of if but when.

Yes, things are not getting any better in Chicago. The utility companies are all hiring security companies t bodyguard their crews while on service calls within the city. It seems the work crews are plenty afraid and have been crime victims. Comcast started this a few years ago and now it has spread to all utilities and many delivery companies. Just the cost of doing business in a city with substantial minority populations.

if it was one political candidate by himself I might agree with you. But, when you have multiple people who are victims I seriously doubt that they would take a chance on being exposed as fakers. It would ruin their political careers. It is a well known fact that all conspiracies eventually are exposed.

As Attorney General, Mr. Goldstein will use his office to sue the federal government to fight the policies of Donald Trump. He will use his office to issue angry statements against the federal government and Donald Trump. He will even write petulant letters to the papers against the policies of Donald Trump.

He will also use his office to free convicts and give them big payouts as restorative justice. He will decriminalize all street crime in the state of Illinois because the only real crime in Illinois is the way Donald Trump implements federal policies.


"Crime? There is no real crime in Illinois. The youths who cannot be described robbed me because of the policies of Donald Trump."

From candidate Goldstein's campaign site:

I will be a strong advocate who will fight for real criminal justice reform. My entire career has been in criminal justice and civil rights. We must end the drug war, mass incarceration, and the cash bail system. I will be a strong advocate for police reform. We must have a federal monitor of the Chicago Police Department and I will advocate that the community have enforcement power if a consent decree were ordered.


As Attorney General, I will stand up to the NRA and hold them and gun manufacturers accountable for their role in the flood of guns that are besieging our communities.

Not a chartered or viable candidate, so this case is being shitcanned.

Not too sharp Goldstein, hadn’t done his homework...even Rahm patsies Doe Eye Madigan and AlderDolt Laurino knows not to tread into the asphalt jungle, once a pleasant working class gem of a neighborhood.

Moved to Florida about 10 years ago (prime Blago time) and travel a bit. Telling people you came from Chicago results in ridicule or at best good natured ribbing. Chicago is a national joke. Maybe other places are as bad but Chicago absolutely tops the list of national embarrassment. This weeks clown? Of course Turban Durbin.
