I understand that the mayor and police chief don't want to scare people away from a ritzy, showcase shopping and dining district during the holiday season, and merchants don't want to scare off visitors, but some Chicago cops who say they were there are reporting that multiple, large mobs of teens were bullying, bumping into, provoking, stealing, threatening, groping women and generally acting like uncivilized idiots in the area of North Michigan and Chicago, and over on Rush, earlier this week. It sounds like a repeat of last summer's "vacation fun."
Not a peep about it in the print press yet.
This comes from Second City Cop, where in between a certain amount of the inevitable cop dumbassery*, there is also plenty of honest reporting. I trust the cops on this one.
* dumbassery: "Nothing short of carpet bombing will ever solve Englewood."
