    I have a hard time believing this could happen in Illinois, land of the sheeple, home of the defenseless!

    Indeed, this could not have happened in Chicago, since handguns are banned there...this must be a misprint.

    On a side note, is it a good idea to be walking along the lake shore in Chicago at 0200 hours? Just asking....

    I don't think it is a good idea to be walking anywhere in Chicago at any time of the day!

    I can hear the lib's now "no big deal, it's not like they shot him or anything like that"

    I have relatives in Chicago and I promised them I would never step foot in that crap hole city.

    I bet the robbers didn't even have FOID cards for their guns.

    mendenhall seems like a good size dude 5'10'/225 but I guess the gun evens things out. I don't he can dodge a bullet. I don't really believe that this happen in Chicago because guns are not allowed in the city plus people can't buy ammo without having some special ID to buy ammo in that city. The robbers probably did not get the memo. sarcasm off.
