    All evidence indicates that the same flash mob from 47th street and the Dan Ryan expressway (Red Line) organized a second in the last month invasion of North Michigan Avenue where they started fights invaded department stores and basically terrorized the area. This is called "Wilding" and is very similar to the phenomenon of English Soccer Hooliganism in the 1980s. The Chicago mainstream media is heavily censoring this story as it makes certain classes of people look bad. Makes the Lib Democrat one party misrule look bad:
