Chicago Teenagers Go ‘Wilding’ Along Magnificent Mile [Video]

Chicago teens riot along the Magnificent Mile

Chicago, IL — Hundreds of teenagers swarmed the Magnificent Mile upscale retail shopping district and scuffled among themselves and attacked innocent pedestrians last night.

About 30 teens have been arrested so far for misdemeanor reckless conduct in the chaos. “Saturday night’s incidents were described by police as ‘wildings,’ where large groups of teens swarm the downtown area and cause an array of disturbances.” Police were deployed to the Michigan Avenue area about 8 pm to respond to what is being described as mob action.

Lots of shoppers, including tourists, were out and about last night, which was one of the warmest evening’s of the year in the city which has been facing an unprecedented crime wave, primarily driven by gang violence. According to police officers on the scene, this is how it went down: “Police said the suspects intentionally bumped into other people on the sidewalks, and fought amongst themselves.”

The roving teenagers acting out in the Michigan Avenue/Gold Coast area reportedly also assaulted a Chicago mounted police officer as well as passengers riding mass transit.

Chicago community activist Andrew Holmes witnessed some of the violence and had this to say:

“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.”

Police are also investigating whether there is any connection between last night’s Magnificent Mile violence and the brawl that occurred last month at the Ford City Mall after an appearance by the “Mindless Behavior” boy band.

There is also speculation that last night’s teen violence may have been coordinated over social media.

    Another good argument for concealed carry and high capacity magazines to protect yourself against these kind of savages that the Mayor and Police Chief do nothing about. They sweep under the carpet and hide the fact that this is the population of the city of Chicago that is causing the problems. What do they do about it? They use your tax dollars to fight against your constitutional rights and the 2nd Amendment to protect yourself. And then they blame everything on guns to deflect the fact that the black youth of Chicago is to blame.

    An M-60 would solve this type problem really fast.

    This is lawlessness. Crush it.

    They MUST be treated as one treats looters. Shoot them.

    But the real crime threat apparently are law abiding gun owners – not "homie G" gang members in Obama's own city. Because of course, those "homies" will vote for Obama's welfare rather than get a job.

    Cops just need to start bashing them mercilessly with nightsticks and pretty soon they'll stop.

    A Klan Rally, and lynching, would end this shit. But then, so would allowing the citizen to have guns to protect themselves. Houston is the same size as Chicago but you don't see this shit there because the thugs don't know who is arned and who isn't.

    Paul…aren't there any fascist politicians or movements in Australia you could concern yourself with?

    These black teen riot videos look have enough people to elect a president. Notice everyone in this video is black, look at the video from last month.
