    Then why wasn't a report or a phone call made to the police about the attack? Guilty. Criminals are not abiding by the law and waiting for concealed carry permits

      Maybe because the police take tooooo long to arrive.
      The entire US are criminals because no one abides by the laws. You got that right homey we the people are all waiting for "Concealed Handguns"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        or, maybe the the police took to long to respond because the Districts on the Northwest side have been depleted and their officers sent elsewhere, like the south and west side, and summer details on the lakefront. Remember, Chicago is a City of Few neighborhoods. Just the neighborhoods east of the River and south and west sides get attention.
