More than 30 arrested when fights break out as hundreds of young people converge on downtown Chicago
About 30 people were arrested as large groups of high school students moved through the city, breaking out in numerous fights on April 17, 2019.

More than 30 teenagers were arrested in downtown Chicago when fights broke out Wednesday night as hundreds of students and about 200 officers wound through bustling streets.
The large groups of young people, many of them high school students, moved through the Loop and the Near North Side, according to Chief of Patrol Fred Waller, speaking at the corner of State and Lake streets after 9 p.m. Wednesday.
“The challenge is to keep the public safety,” he said.
A total of 31 people, 23 males and eight females — all juveniles, ages 15 to 17 — were taken into custody, most of them charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, and released to their parents, police said Thursday. Other charges included disorderly mob action, resisting arrest and battery, according to a police statement.
Waller said there probably were about 500 teens traveling through the city. Just after 9 p.m. Wednesday, police lined the middle of State Street outside the Chicago Theatre. More than a dozen officers on bikes surrounded a group of teens and blared their sirens. About 15 minutes later, a large of teens group bolted back to the corner of State and Lake streets as two women posed for a photo in front of the Chicago Theatre marquee.
“When they run like that, someone starts a fight,” Waller said.
Police strategy was a lot of tolerance, talking to the youths and moving the crowd along to public transportation, Waller said.
“And people who were completely disobeying the law, they had to be arrested,” he said.
Arrests were made on charges including disobeying orders to disperse and trespassing, Waller said. There were no reported injuries aside from bruises and bumps, he said.
Waller spoke about socio-economic challenges facing Chicago and finding other modes of entertainment for the teens. He praised the officers’ response: “They’re so tolerant of these kids who are just so disrespectful, cursing at them, saying the things that they say.
“We’ve faced this challenge for the past few years, coming up with different strategies and trying to do some intervention,” Waller said.

About 9:30 p.m., just after Waller addressed the news media, there was a tense standoff between the teens and police outside a nearby Potbelly Sandwich Shop as police shoved through the center of the crowd. A large group ran from the corner outside the Potbelly to the Wit hotel, 201 N. State St., leading to several more arrests.
About 9:40 p.m., a large group made their way past a packed patio at McCormick & Schmick’s, 1 E. Wacker Drive.
“It looks like they’re going to a party,” said a man who observed the crowd as he crossed the street.
A large group of students headed into the State/Lake Red Line station outside the Chicago Theatre about 10 p.m.
“Beat it, go home,” an officer said.
Earlier in the night, on the third day of spring break for Chicago Public Schools, a large group of teens gathered at Millennium Park. Police moved the teens out of the park after several fights broke out.
Jon Palak, 32, of Andersonville, sat outside Sweetwater Tavern and Grille as a bunch of youths approached the North Michigan Avenue restaurant.
“We have no idea what happened,” Palak said.
Security guards stood outside the Nederlander Theatre on West Randolph Street, and the McDonald’s at Dearborn Street farther west was locked. About 8:45 p.m., a large group passed the Goodman Theatre as traffic crept through nearby streets. Less than 10 minutes later, shouts erupted at the nearby Subway restaurant as more than 50 teens ran in and out of the location.
Pedestrians who found themselves in the middle of the traveling groups asked police what was happening and waited for the groups to pass.
Pedro Lisbao, 30, of Streeterville, stood with friends near Lake and Dearborn streets. Lisbao, who is Brazilian, said the massive police presence made him nervous and reminded him of youths in Brazil affected by the class divide who hang out at malls. “People are just standing and walking, but there’s so many police,” he said.
“We saw a very large number of cops and then a large number of kids,” Lisbao said.
The youths “were running around, which is what kids do,” he said. “It seemed like the cops were waiting for them. So I guess that’s what we don’t understand.
“We’ll wait till the dust settles,” he said.
For about a decade, Chicago police have periodically dealt with large crowds of teens who gather in the downtown area to spend time along the lakefront, Water Tower Place, Millennium Park or other spots when the weather starts to warm up.
Police also have had the challenging task of quelling disturbances that erupt among those crowds in an area of the city that is home to its central business district and draws tourists from around the globe.
There often have been cases when the crowds have proved to be a nuisance for the police, with some teens getting into fights, vandalizing property and shoplifting or committing other crimes.
Police officials implemented strategies under previous department administrations to address mob action incidents, which often are coordinated via text messages or social networking websites, in downtown and nearby neighborhoods. Police said the youths in many cases come downtown from the South and West sides using mass transit.
However, police have stressed that this phenomenon, involving large groups of teens, is not unique to Chicago. Philadelphia has had problems with mobs of teenagers, who also used social networking, assaulting pedestrians and vandalizing property since at least 2010, according to media reports.

Not a peep on national media coverage of the big networks.
It runs against their socialist agenda.

Car2Go: Fleet of stolen Mercedes-Benz vehicles stars in social media vids

A handful of Mercedes keys is displayed this week on social media. | Facebook Chicago police tonight said 21 people have been charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass to vehicles and one of them is also charged with felony financial identity theft in connection with a massive fraud against the Car2Go vehicle rental app.

Now, CWBChicago has uncovered a cache of videos showing Chicago residents enjoying complimentary use of Mercedes-Benz vehicles on the West Side.

Police declined to release names, ages, and other details of the offenders. But investigators believe more than 100 Mercedes vehicles were taken in the scam by using fraudulent credit card information in the Car2Go phone application.

According to a police source, some of the thieves tried to re-steal the cars from a police impound lot.

Car2Go rents high-end cars for short periods. The company deactivated all of its Mercedes vehicles on Wednesday and temporarily suspended operations in Chicago due to the widespread theft and fraud operation.

Benz! Benz! Benz!
A man brags about all of the Benzes at his disposal, then slides into one and drives away.
I paid cash for this!
Oh, no. They ain't trippin'
The last Mercedes taken from the lot (foul language)
A thief speeds off with the last Mercedes on a Car2Go lot.

This mural must explain why so many black students flunk out and turn to drugs, guns, gangs and crime. Right?

Or maybe the mural doesn't show any black kids because a lot of blacks don't really like snow and cold weather, so they don't go out and play in it? Never mind.

HISTORIC MURAL REMOVED FROM SCHOOL BECAUSE IT ONLY FEATURES WHITE CHILDREN
Painting taken down because it doesn’t reflect modern day “diversity” of Chicago
Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com - APRIL 18, 2019



A historic mural dating from 1937 was removed from a middle school in Chicago because it only showed white children and failed to reflect the school’s modern day “diversity”.

The mural was taken down at Percy Julian Middle School in Oak Park after the school’s “Social Justice Club” and “Diversity Committee” complained that it was upsetting to students of color.

“I have had students approach me pointing out that this picture does not represent our student body or the diversity of Oak Park,” Principal Todd Fitzgerald wrote in an email to staff.

The mural – entitled ‘Child and Sports–Winter’ was originally painted by Ethel Spears and was previously displayed in Lowell Elementary.
“This mural made students feel invisible because it doesn’t reflect the current student body,” Brito Millan said. “How can a student learn in a healthy environment when they don’t feel they are being seen?”

However, David Sokol, a retired professor of American art history at the University of Illinois at Chicago, described the removal of the painting as a “modern-day book burning.”

“There is nothing offensive with the mural; it just shows all white kids playing,” said Sokol. “Just because it doesn’t have any black kids, doesn’t make it offensive. It doesn’t display any stereotypes at all. That’s how Oak Park looked back then. You can’t erase history.”

Barbara Bernstein, a founder of the New Deal Art Registry, agreed, commenting, “I think it does a real disservice to remove a piece of historical work,” said Bernstein. “Not everything in your environment is going to be a perfect reflection of you.”

It will be interesting to see what minorities will be bitchin' about 70 years from now when whites may hold just a slight advantage over Latinos.
Right now Chicago and the eastern coastal PROG urbanites are bitchin about ONE song Kate Smith did 90+/- years ago and NOW will stop her rendition of God Bless America over it.

Chicago’s Top Cop Tells the Truth, Admits Officers ‘Look the Other Way’ When Fellow Cops Break Laws

Chicago's police superintendent recently admitted that his officers often look the other way when they see bad cops breaking the law.


Chicago, IL — Recently, Chicago’s top cop, Police Supt. Eddie Johnson—whose base salary is over a quarter of a million annually—told the Chicago Sun Times in an interview that cops “look the other way” all the time when it comes to witnessing misconduct within their ranks. While readers of the Free Thought Project likely know about this blue code of silence within departments, for the superintendent of one of the nation’s largest police forces to come out and admit this is noteworthy and utterly astonishing.

The system of US law enforcement is set up to protect itself which makes it nearly impossible for an individual whistleblower to prove wrongdoing. In case after case, TFTP reports incidents in which abuse, violence, and even murder has gone on inside police departments, is widely known inside the department, yet no one speaks up. Chicago is one of the worst departments in this regard.

Crossing the blue line often means career suicide and can also be dangerous. Previously, the Free Thought Project reported on the whistleblowers from the Chicago police department whose very lives were threatened for trying to expose the corruption in their department.

As Shannon Spalding, one of the whistleblowers from the CPD points out, this blue code of silence and punishment is already an unfortunate reality for most and the superintendent’s comments back her up.

“It’s no secret that if you go against the code of silence, and you report corruption, it will ruin your career,” Spalding said.

Spalding and her partner Daniel Echeverria uncovered a massive level of corruption in their department, leading to the arrest of other officers. However, being good cops got them threatened with “going home in a casket.”

This cycle of the “blue line” of protection can only persist for so long before there is no one left with enough courage to call out the corruption.

In his interview with the Sun Times, Johnson’s words suggest that this is already happening.

“Do I think there might be officers that look the other way? Yeah, I do. … There are a lot of reasons why cops might not report misconduct. If they see their partner engage in misconduct, they may look the other way,” he said.

“Do I think there are issues in that regard? Yeah.” said Johnson, stopping short of calling out the systemic problem, adding, “But I’ m not going to indict the entire department for the acts of certain individuals … If I’m made aware of it, I deal with it.”

When the Times rhetorically asked the question of “isn’t that the very definition of ‘code of silence’,” the superintendent noted that there is no definition of it in the dictionary.

What could they possibly be thinking to justify such a barbaric action.

Probably being sold into sexual slavery as real fresh meat for some pedo billionaire.

An unbelievable level of depravity in this situation. Horrifying, but it’s been done before. Similar story from ten years ago, or so.
When the insane live among us and are protected, as they are in today's society, the depravity will continue to escalate until we fall into the abyss of revolution, leading to our eventual destruction!

We be going away folks!

Absolute pure evil. Evil has no justification.

They can’t put those people away fast enough, to a place deep and dark enough, for a time long enough, as far as I’m concerned. Either that, or a high powered rifle bullet to each ugly noggin.

I'm sick enough to be willing to pull the trigger on each of those demented animals (they are not humans).
The pregnant mother is dead. They baby they tore out is brain dead at last update. Two innocent lives lost. Three beasts should not be allowed to waste air.

I don’t know if this is what you meant, but you’re probably not sick, just sick of all the madness, that seems never ending.

Close.
I'm sick enough in the head to be just as demented as those three to eliminate them with "extreme prejudice". A term my brother said was used in the military on sniper actions.

I would not lose a minute of sleep upon completion, eat well, and let St. Peter decide my fate at the end.
As some in the military say "KILL them ALL and let God sort 'em out".
