    They are taking advanatage of no police in the area since many of the 16th district police are all detailed out of the district to other parts of the City and lakefront.

    Pathetic hypocrisy about to reveal itself once again. No Brother Al or Jesse twoface to protest here. This is just an excepted evil but if someone other than a black man is responsible, Oh Lord CNN will be all over it!

    These boys and the young girl we're innocent victims to a bunch of cowards. If they are big and bad then maybe they should come forward.
