    Welcome To Chicago - You're Being Robbed!

    Welcome to Chicago -- now give me that iPhone - chicagotribune.com

    Short story: Woman arrives in town, gets to hotel on Mag Mile, goes for a walk, and is robbed almost immediately.

    In this case, all anyone could do is call the police. With any luck, the near future will bring another possible reaction by those who find themselves being attacked & battered in Barack Hussein's gutter city.......

    They would not even want my phone, all it does is make and receive calls, and I probably use it 10 minutes a month.

    Back to the OP's thread. These young kids will no doubt become more aggressive and move into the "big time" in a few years.

    I hope the woman after filing a police report headed right out of town just as fast as she could.....

    I've got 2 of those in my kitchen. The old phone still works. The cordless is on it's last legs after maybe 10 years.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    So she goes to Chicago and then goes for a walk. That's just not smart.

    She's lucky that's all that happened.

    Get out while the going's good.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    For anyone who has never been on the Magnificent Mile, it's elbow to elbow a lot of times during the day or early evening with shoppers. If the stores were still open, it wouldn't have been uncommon for people to be walking the sidewalks. Unfortunately, and this was true even when I lived there 20+ years ago, the kids will go there, in gangs of sometimes 10 or more, and purposely run into people, pin them against something, and then rummage their pockets, purse, etc. They look for easy targets. If their target happens to fight back, that's when they usually get knifed, the hell beaten out of them, etc.

    It sounds like at least a part of this woman's purpose of going to Chicago was to go shopping on the Magnificent Mile. In the near future, I hope she has one more option available to her in defense if she should be attacked.
