The Chicago Sun Times did not try to estimate how many people were involved in the riot, other than to say it was a “group of youths” that inflicted “minor injuries” on two people.
The videos, on-line comments, and Chicago police officers tell a different story.
“This story is NOT accurate at all,” said a Chicago police officer who grew up near the Ford City Mall, referring to the Sun Times report. “They were looting, causing HAVOC not just in the mall, but stories all around the mall too.”
Several people said that the mob moved to the nearby Best Buy, Olive Garden and Sports Authority, where they did “severe damage” and caused many people to hide in the back of the stores. The video bears them out.
Urban101.com – “Chicago’s Number One Urban Web Site” – estimated 3,000 people were at the “riot.”Much of Chicago - particularly areas that are heavily black - have been ceded to gang rule. Black gang rule.
Operation Head Start has been a monumental failure, Mr. Broookins. An elected alderman in Chicago, the head of the City Council's black caucus, has no problem recruiting black gang members to campaign for him.
Do you understand the direct threat to state legitimacy, when an organized racial caucus has the ability to utilize racial gangs in campaigning?
And we wonder why the Second City is drowning in the blood of its own citizenry?
Which brings us to this story of Organized Blackness, proving that sometimes acts of what we at SBPDL have dubbed "Spontaneous Blackness" are planned all along [Flash Mob Thwarted By Police, NBC Chicago, 3-3-13]:
Reports of an organized ‘flash mob’ at the Chicago Ridge Mall sent mall security and store owners into a frenzy Sunday.
Police received tips form school teachers and a Chicago Police Department gang unit that close to 300 teens were planning to collect at the Chicago Ridge Mall.
The mob was supposed to gather around 4 p.m. in the mall, located at 95th Street and Ridgeland Avenue, and sparked storeowners to close shop early.
Nearly 50 police officers crowded the area, but no flash mob occurred.
Officers reportedly saw busses of teens arriving, but retreating once they saw the officers.
The teens tweeted messages later that the plans were cancelled because of too many officers, Chicago Police told Pyzmarski.
"We averted the problem," said Chicago Ridge Police Chief Robert Pyzmarski. "Our goal was to send a message that kind of behavior will not be tolerated."
Recent mobs have sparked dozens of arrests and injuries after large groups spurred fights and vandalized areas, police said.
Force and a display of force is all black people need to dissuade from engaging in acts of Organized Blackness or Spontaneous Blackness.
A teen rampage last Saturday injured two people and resulted in dozens of arrests while area youths attended an appearance by music group Mindless Behavior.
That, and white America must learn the simple power of telling black America, "No" -- which is what the display of state force represented at the Chicago Ridge Mall.
A simple word, that is effective and powerful.
Back in 1994, the city of Chicago dared to tell black America "No" -- specifically, the residents of the 99 percent black Robert Taylor Homes [Taylor Homes Hit With Iron Fist, Chicago Tribune, March 31, 1994]:
Responding to scores of reports of shootings, special squads of 16 officers and two sergeants have begun patrolling the hallways and stairways at the Chicago Housing Authority's Robert Taylor Homes, Mayor Richard Daley announced Wednesday.
As the emotional level of outcry-from citizens and public officials-continued to rise, U.S. District Judge Wayne Andersen hastily called a hearing to state that he would allow systematic, apartment-by-apartment searches by police under certain circumstances.
At an emotional news conference at Beethoven Elementary School, 25 W. 47th St., with schoolchildren in the background, Daley and CHA Chairman Vincent Lane announced that police would use the same tactics employed at the Cabrini-Green public housing development after the sniper killing of 7-year-old Dantrell Davis in October 1992.
Shootings across Chicago have claimed at least 15 lives since the start of last weekend, and police estimate there were 300 reports of shootings from Thursday to Sunday at the Taylor Homes, located on South State Street between 35th Street and Garfield Boulevard.
Police Supt. Matt Rodriguez said the "mission teams" of patrol officers, detectives and gang crime specialists also have been dispatched to other South Side areas, including Englewood, where the current gang war over control of narcotics turf erupted three years ago between the Black Disciples and Gangster Disciples gangs.
The teams have been directed to patrol the CHA buildings and drive loiterers and others out of public areas, while other police and CHA security "volunteers" man the perimeter ready for arrests.The violence in these almost all-black areas were responsible for the closing of a string of trauma centers in Chicago (running huge deficits all paid for by the taxpayer) in the late 1980s, because uninsured black patients required emergency care for gun shot and knife wounds.
Yes, the current people occupying power in the United States government and the governments of both Illinois and Chicago are rabidly on the side of Organized Blackness and have no problem covering up and excusing away acts of Spontaneous Blackness (especially in the fourth branch of the government -- the state controlled media); but the power of government and the 'state' is only a tool to be used by those who have been voted in to wield it.
The story of what happened this past weekend at the Chicago Ridge Mall is just as instructive as the story of what happened at the Robert Taylor Homes in 1994 -- force is all black people understand.
And telling either an individual black person or Organized Blackness "No" is perhaps the ultimate declaration of force.
