47th street and the Dan Ryan expressway Red Line. This mob invasion, mob attack was supposedly organized on social media - so those in this area ought to be able to assist police in finding out exactly which gangs, crews organized this terrible criminal mob attack.

Violent crime - especially car jackings and shootings are exploding in many Chicago neighborhoods. Sadly the main criminal justice Dems (Judge Evans, DA Fox, CB Chairman Preckwinkle Sheriff Dart and worse ... the Chicago media are doing everything in their power to cover up or excuse these crimes when they are committed by juveniles - late teens.

One terrifying type of violence are organized, flash mob wilding attacks where large numbers (over 100 people) organize on social media then invade some fashionable neighborhood or the lake front, start fights, terrorize and attack regular citizens - some robberies but it's mostly for "fun". We've had successive wilding, flash mob attacks in Hyde Park the last 2 Halloweens. We should prepare for some mob wilding attacks on our beaches this late spring and summer.

There was a very disturbing flash mob wilding attack last week on Michigan Avenue by the Water Tower. The media and Chicago Dem political elite is heavily censoring this subject as apparently one suburban man was attacked and is in critical condition with a fractured skull. (Source Second City Cop)

Please contact local (Hyde Park, Kenwood, North Kenwood, South Shore) police, University of Chicago police and local media, neighborhood associations and make them aware of the situation and ask for suggestions how best to prepare for this type of violence in our area.
