    "Illinois AG candidate robbed at gunpoint in Chicago during campaign photoshoot

    [​IMG]

    A Democratic candidate running for Illinois attorney general was robbed at gunpoint Thursday during a campaign photoshoot in Chicago.

    The Chicago Tribune reported that Aaron Goldstein, 42, and members of his campaign team were approached by three men in their early 20s. One of the men had a handgun and demanded Goldstein and the campaign aides turn over the camera equipment and other personal belongings, including their cell phones, which they did.

    According to the Tribune, law enforcement sources confirmed that they had no one in custody and did not release a description of the suspects.

    Goldstein’s campaign manager Robert Murphy, who was not with the candidate at the time, explained that he was taking promotional campaign photos with an “in-the-neighborhood kind of” message, according to the Tribune. The incident took place in Albany Park.

    I can't wait to hear about the need for MORE gun control in that communist cesspool city. Those liberal posers are lucky that they didn't get lit up South Side-style.

    I, and many others, have heard folks and other sources talking about how the white politicians deserved it for using the poor black folks as chips in their one-party electoral checkers game. They should leave it up to the community organizers in that particular neighborhood to solve this crime. Anything else is racist.

    I'm sorry, but that story put a smile on my face.

    Actually, no, I'm not sorry.

    I'm not glad they're okay. If anyone needs to pay for coddling criminals, weaker sentences, demoralizing police, and preventing citizens from being armed, it's Democrats. I firmly believe they need violent criminal encounters to see the light. Whether they survive or not is irrelevant.

    The old irony meter is pegged.

    Just roll into someone's 'hood" to do some photo ops standing out like one grain of white rice in a sea of wild rice, don't clear it with the Coppers or locals first and lo and behold not much in the way of YT supremacy but a WHOLE lot of naivety on display.

    And luck.

    I suppose there's nothing technically funny about armed robbery... But given all the ironies built into the story, I found it rather amusing. :)

    Without a description of the suspects, I simply can't begin to imagine what they looked like, other than being young, male, Chicago democrats.:timeforthat:Nope, not even a guess.:whistling:

    I certainly grinned when I read this. I'm glad no one was hurt, but this really is impossible. Gun's have never been legal in Chicago. Chicago is a very safe city. Except for the South Side. Or the loop. Or the elevated. Or Lincoln Park. Or West Madison Street. Or the Eisenhower Expressway. Or the.. Oh, nevermind.

    Its not the criminals' fault, but that of the white patriarchy that created a society where the only way to survive is to steal someone's camera equipment and political flyers.

    Guess they don't expect the public's help in locating the suspects? Why else wouldn't they release descriptions, right? ;)

    Maybe the "in-the-neighborhood kind of" location they decided upon wasn't expected to be a "at the normal crime scene" location?

    Brazen suspects. Wonder if the AG candidate pondered upon the reason the suspects were so brazen in their armed robbery? (And able to be so brazen?)

    Hope the responding cops who took the paper didn't have to fill out a worker's comp report for the facial muscle strains suffered by keeping straight faces ...

    If the Attorney General is the state's top cop, this guy must be a real Badass.
    Those yutes don't know how lucky they are, facing down Mr Law 'n Order like that.
