We saw something similar in many neighborhoods in Chicago last summer; groups of teenage boys mostly randomly attacking people out for a walk, or simply minding their own business.

It was in the mid-50s yesterday and the warmer weather brought the ruffians to the Gold Coast and Magnificent Mile shopping districts in the Loop. There were dozens of arrests and several shoppers were assaulted, along with a mounted policeman.

CBS Chicago:

CBS 2 is learning about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding a slew of arrests.

Things got pretty bad, very quickly with many innocent shoppers and tourists caught in the middle of a very chaotic situation.

Hundreds of teens littered Michigan Avenue and State Street near Chicago.

Things started to go bad around 6:00 p.m. Saturday, with teens purposely bumping into people, and causing fights among themselves.

Fifteen juveniles and two adults were arrested and charged with Reckless Conduct— a misdemeanor.
Community activist, Andrew Holmes witnessed some of the problems, while shopping with his family.

“You had a group of teens, close to maybe 500. They assaulted a Chicago police officer that was on a mounted on a horse and all of a sudden they assaulted a citizen walking the streets, just a normal citizen shopping and enjoying the weather,” said Holmes.

Later that night, a man was attacked around 10:45 p.m. while walking near Chicago and Dearborn. Sources tell us he was jumped and punched in the face by a group of teens. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

In a separate incident, a group of woman say they were attacked by a mob of girls on the CTA Red Line. The women reported a robbery once they got off the train at the State and Monroe station. Eleven females were arrested—10 juveniles and one adult—and charged with battery. Two of the teens were charged with strong- armed robbery.

This does not bode well for the coming months. With youth unemployment among blacks at historic levels, kids are going to be left with little to do except see what kind of trouble they can get in. Most of these kids were not gangbangers (500 gangbangers in downtown Chicago would have caused a lot more violence). But once they gather, mob psychology takes over and trouble follows.

Last summer it was “flash mobs” — groups of 10-20 kids roaming around looking for targets who were mostly white. If this is an escalation, police are going to have their hands full and residents will probably stay indoors.

"Mischievous teens," says CBS, "teens" say you. Don't you really mean black kids radicalized by the media and their parents into believing the world hates them? Don't you mean a specifically racial youth culture which admires sociopathic music and where vulgar public behavior is endemic? They may as well have been hunting up Jews. Were "teens" involved in kristallnacht?

It's only a matter of time before one of these flash mobs meets an armed citizen with multiple clips. They've been lucky so far. When it happens, trust me, it'll be "man bites dog" in the media and calls for gun control.

When is enough enough and when do I have a legitimate right to walk down a street in peace without the baleful eye of Al Sharpton mainstreaming pathetic excuses for his and his culture's bigotry and violence?

When you say "teens," you are yourself inartfully mainstreaming bigotry. Call this what it is. Can you imagine these morons a majority?

One of the unwritten rules that allows the machine in Chicago to work is that the lines between neighborhoods are never crossed. Sounds like the "youth" have determined that lines are not for them to respect any more. This is not going to end well. And perhaps it is long past time for that to happen. Cheers -

We had a chance in the 60's, but when JFK, RFK, and Martin Luther got murdered, we went down the New Age road of division.

Just one more example of the last 50 years CFR globalist agenda to destroy American culture.

The article on the CBS website also had an interesting quote from community activist Andrew Holmes, who witnesses the melee.
“I caution those parents if their child has been arrested which numerous teenagers have been arrested tonight, that you need to think about your child. Just don’t say the Chicago police picked on your child, when we were watching all the assault going on, especially by teen women,” said Hollmes.

Finally! A "community activist" who isn't making excuses for the unruly mob! He's putting it to the parents (or whoever is supposed to be supervising) of these thugs - your kid isn't an innocent little angel being picked on by the man, he/she is a troublemaker and you have to take responsibility.

Of course this activist will be ignored by the other apologists who will blame this on society or twitter...

When is a "journalist" going to muster the courage to call these miscreants by the proper name, that being "HOODLUMS"? I also admire the term "HOOLIGANS."

"Mischievous teens" seems to be the new euphemism for black criminals.

Like Trayvon Martin, more "kids" for Obama to adopt.

So, the ghetto rats have figured out that a half-century of "affirmative action" has left the 'hood a burnt-out district that can't support a tuft of dune grass, and are taking their looting to the Eloi nests in consequence? Guess blue-city education isn't as mind-numbing as we've thought.
