Never a Community Organiser around...

...when you really, really need one...

-- CHICAGO -- The attacks occurred around 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Moments after a group of teens wrestled with Singer over his iPad and BlackBerry, members of the same mob attacked a 42-year-old doctor visiting from Japan. That doctor was beaten and robbed of his iPod Touch while walking in the 700 block of North Lake Shore Drive, authorities said.

Both physicians were in town for the annual convention of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, which entered into a 10-year deal with McCormick Place in 2010. The five-day event typically brings in more than 30,000 doctors, vendors and other specialists from around the world.
But, but, but... "the childrens is r futcher"...
On Monday, two 16-year-old boys were ordered held in custody on juvenile charges of attempted armed robbery and aggravated battery.

Three other teens were charged with robbery as adults: Dvonte Sykes, 17, of the 7500 block of South Normal Avenue; Trovolus Pickett, 17, of the 8400 block of South Dorchester Avenue; and Derod'te Wright, 18, of the 3500 block of South State Street. They remained in custody Monday night in lieu of bonds ranging from $200,000 to $300,000.
Let's face it, despite all Barry's hard work... Chicago is a war zone.

Get out while you still can. He did.

"Dvonte Sykes, 17, of South Normal Avenue; Trovolus Pickett, 17, and Derod'te Wright, 18,"

I thought the youth's names were colorful,until I saw that STREET name!

"South Normal Avenue"!

Oh, and I wonder when we can expect that patriot Rana back in Canada?

Maybe the Feds can do a twofer and bring him and Little Omar back on the same plane.
