Police said an officer saw what looked like several people – at least 20 – jumping up and down and, when the officer got closer, he saw that they were beating someone.

Police said the 15-year-old is the only one charged in the attack. All the others fled the scene.

Police said the victim refused medical treatment and refused to prosecute for the attack.

    Need to start blowing some of these people’s heads off over this mob action. After the fiasco up in Milwaukee and the spear chucker behavior here in Chicago… Freaking animals.

      Spear chucker is an old classic!! Bravo!!

    The animals are running the zoo. Savage simians will only cry racism if they are put in their proper place (6 ft. under). Thus they feel they have whitey by the balls, and can do what comes naturally to them. Really disgusted at this PC liberal society we live in!!!!!

  • Can`t wait for it

    One day these law breakers will run across a vigilante armed with a 14 shot 9 mil, and we`ll see what happens.If I`m on the the guy`s jury he`s NOT GUILTY!!!

      Not in Chicago…. virtually IMPOSSIBLE to legally carry… and THAT’s JUST what these little “mobsters” are counting on

  • Joe Harris

    Concealed carry, the only way to protect yourself.

    HaHaHa, they show a picture of a white guy behind bars, when they know damn well it was a negroid!

    Should anyone defend themselves, I promise you that they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, just as happened to Bernhard Goetz. When the person gets out of prison for commiting the crime of self-defense, several lawyers will be waiting on him so as to take away all of his Earthly possessions. Any white person standing up to the current system will be destroyed, his wife disposessed even if she wasn’t raped into insanity in the original assault, and their children taken from them to be re-educated.

    wait wait wait. who dosent prosecute after they were just attacked?? this story dosent even make sense. im black and would have prosecuted whoever to the fullest extent of the law. jus some more media propaganda that dumb angry white people fall for. keep getting yourselves riled up and do something stupid for no reason at all and get that ass kicked all over downtown.

    police have done a great job by arresting this teen, police should have taken some strict actions against them, so that in future he will not do any such kind of things.
