I see countless kids that look exactly like that every single day. That's not useful at all.

I'm surprised if you start googling how many issues like this you find all over the country. Dozens of teens swarming and trashing a mall in Milwaukee, mobs going crazy in Baltimore's inner harbor, a couple dozen teens running wild on a train in Atlanta, mob attacks in Philadelphia, a Wendy's worker in New York seriously injured after a large group of girls went wild throwing food and beating the crap out of her, 25 teens calmly walking into a gas station in Las Vegas and strolling around stealing over $600 worth of merchandise as the overwhelmed employee was cornered behind the counter, a string of robberies in Minneapolis where around 50 teens will walk into a store, beat the employee and take as much merchandise as they can carry before walking back out, a large number of flash thefts in Washington DC with up to 25 teens wandering into high-end stores and stealing thousands worth of clothing, mobs of high school students in suburban california beating the living crap out of a city worker who was working out in public.

It's a huge problem - certainly not unique to Chicago by any means.
Yep

So far in 2011, robberies in the Near North downtown police district have increased by 10 percent, but Greater North Michigan Avenue Association CEO John Chikow said that retail businesses seemed to have gotten a handle on the string of mass shopliftings that plagued the area during the winter.

Of the five teens who appeared in court in connection to Saturday's robberies, three are being held on bonds of over $200,000. Tonia Rush, mother of 17-year-old Dvonte Sykes who's being held on a $250,000 bond, said that the bonds are being set so high because of where the assaults are happening.

“If it’s black-on-black crime, nobody cares,” she said.

Its not that the victims are white, but that the victims have money/wealth.

Perfect Ms Rush, don't apologize for your POS son's behavior but complain about the high bond. With parenting like that, I'm shocked her little angel was involved in jumping people.

And not that the victims have money/wealth, but they are occuring in areas which contain money/wealth.
