Chicago rioting/looting

  1. I was putting posts in the Portland thread but, all hell seems to be breaking loose in Chicago so I'm giving it its own thread. See the Portland thread for a few more posts about it.

    There’s a caravan of dozens of cars filled with looters hitting Chicago’s luxury store fronts.

  2. Sounds like a fun summer.
     
  3. I bet she'll address this the same as she did people enjoying themselves on the beach yesterday.

    Just kidding, she'll pretend nothing happened and everyone was as classy as usual.

  4. Hmmm... most/all the people in the beach pic are White. Most/all the looters are black. I wonder why the lesbian, black mayor won't condemn her own criminal brethren? A little racist, maybe?
     
  5. And appear to be gay.
     
  6. Listening to the scanner, the cops are helpless. Way outnumbered.

    We're all on our own.
     
  7. They will, as soon as they figure out how to blame Trump.
     
  8. On CNN, not a word. It's bash Trump, 24/7...

  10. "Chicago police return fire as looters hit Mag Mile, smashing windows and clashing with officers

    Hundreds of people swept through the Magnificent Mile and other parts of downtown Chicago early Monday, smashing windows, looting stores, clashing with police and at one point exchanging gunfire with officers, authorities said. The shots were fired at Michigan Avenue and Lake Street around 4:30 a.m., nearly five hours into the widespread vandalism. Officers were not hit and returned fire, according to the department, which said it was not known if anyone else was hit.

    Earlier, an officer was seen slumped against a building by Grand and Wabash avenues as other other cops tended to him. It was unclear what had happened to him. Down the block, police in camouflage gear and shields briefly stood outside at a shop at Rush Street and Grand Avenue.
    The looting began shortly after midnight as people darted through broken store windows and doors along Michigan Avenue carrying shopping bags full of merchandise. Cars dropped off more people as the crowd grew. At least one U-Haul van was seen pulling up.

    Police made several arrests through the night and recovered at least one gun, officials said. One woman with shopping bags in her hands fell on the sidewalk as an officer was chasing her. Another woman appeared to have been pepper-sprayed. A rock was thrown at a squad car.
    The looting seemed to be centered in Streeterville and North Michigan Avenue, but some looting was reported on State Street in the Loop and on the Near North Side. By 3 a.m. police appeared to be getting things under control.

  11. And this is not on the "south side"...
     
  12. They appeared to be very Happy.

    There's one bikini. A Nanny or A Caitlyn Jenner ?
     
  13. Mayor sent out a letter requesting Fed help while blaming Trump on same page.

    They vote Dems, right. I'd let them burn for awhile yet.
    If I was Trump, I'd call in Fed troops, but they can take their time stopping at every McDonalds and Burger Kings, and Jewels grocery stores on the way. Get there by end of month.

  15. I can't wait to see the first media reports of "mostly peaceful protesters"...
     
  16. Peaceful gunfire, peaceful arson, peaceful assault..
     
  17. As per guidelines dictated by the Democrat Socialist Nazi party their media network
    Lie, deny, obfuscate, and ignore the Chicago looting and rioting.
     
  18. No aid to sanctuary cities. Let them reap what they have sown.
     
  19. That Tribune article is great, at the beginning, shots exchanged between cops and looters at 4:30am...at the bottom of the article, cops are gaining control at 3am, lol.
     
  20. Why does this so called mayor allow this to happen?
     
  21. Back to school shopping?
     
  22. I am thankful I don’t have to travel to, travel through and work in places like Chicago any longer.
     
  23. Unbelievable. Time to close all the stores in Chicago and just GTFO.
     
  24. This is the calling card of Communists. Foment chaos and then fill the void.
     
  25. Why would Groot condemn her own militia? That's counter-productive, even for Bolsheviks. You have to motivate your troops before you send them out to loot and pillage, not condemn them.

    It's about leading man, leading!
     
  26. I hope they can hold the north side, if not we’ll have to fight them at the Wisconsin border... if so, I am ready :nutcheck:
     
  27. so grateful to have escaped from there in 1992. love being in Texas, even if it is in the suburbs of leftist austin. at least I can defend myself here and we hardly ever hear gunshots or see looting. they are in the midst of a horrible stiuation which shows no signs of abating. this time it's not just the south and west sides of town. apparently the looters have hit the miracle mile and are targeting the wealthy areas. they may end up with marshal law.
     
  28. Groot is already begging businesses not to flee the city, and now this stuff is going on and will continue through November and beyond.

    Chicago is going to look like Detroit in a few short years as anybody with means is going to leave and those without means will stay and drive the city further and further into the ground.

    Democrats don't care either. Just one more step closer to their twisted vision for America.
     
  29. Barry's sons.
     
  30. Dispensing equality and justice

  31. I just revised the lyrics:

    On State Street, that hate street, I just want to say
    They loot things they don't loot on Broadway
    They have the crime, the crime of their life
    I saw a man, he lanced with his knife
    In ****cago ****cago my homie town
     
  32. On a happy note, my wife’s cousin, who lives just outside of Chicago, has been buying high end clothes, shoes, and jewelry off of Facebook and Craigslist for pennies on the dollar. This week should be a banner week for her. Unless of course the rob and kill her.
     
  33. Live press conference right now. The police chief is bragging about all the guns they've taken off the "streets".
     
  34. Any problems around the bath houses?
     
  35. LOL I'm sure I don't know. Black mayor, black police chief, black states attorney, black chief judge. I guess this is systemic racism.
     
  36. I was starting to fall asleep listening to this on the 5-0 Radio app on my phone when they mentioned the convoy of vehicles and anticipating looting. Got my attention real quick. It's time for all decent people to flee these crudholdes and let them burn. Then just wall them off to the rest of the population.
     
  37. If them dudes had displayed a" stars and bars" beach towel, there would have been outrage, but a "rainbow" beach towel is OK.
     
  38. Nothing to see here, move along!

  39. Send in the scoops
     
  40. They raised bridges around downtown Chicago to keep more of the looters from crossing the river. The cops treated the river as a moat. Surprised the cops didn't use a trebuchet to keep the hordes at bay .

  41. Made me think of this:

  42. helicopter gunships with mini guns would shut that nonsense down pretty quickly.
