LBJ's Great Grandkids Go Wilding in Rahmaland

Nearly 30 people were arrested downtown on Saturday night for disturbances that ranged from bumping into passersby on sidewalks to attacking passengers aboard a CTA train, authorities said, citing preliminary information,reports the Chicago Tribune.

Seventeen of the people in custody -- all but two younger than 18 -- were charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro.

Those arrests happened on the Magnificent Mile near North Michigan Avenue and East Huron Street between 7 p.m. and about 7:40 p.m., authorities said. The suspects were alleged to have bumped into other people on the sidewalks, blocked sidewalks and traffic on the street and started fights among themselves.

In a separate incident, police arrested 11 teens at the CTA's State/Lake station in The Loop about 6:35 p.m. after the group attacked two women on an elevated train car, authorities said, citing preliminary information.

The incident started when a woman on the "L" asked one of the teens to put out a cigarette, authorities said, citing preliminary information. The group of teenagers then allegedly attacked that woman and another woman on the train before running onto the "L" platform with the purse belonging to one of the victims.

Officers arrested the teens as they attempted to leave the station, authorities said.

The 11 teens, all but one of whom are younger than 18, told police they had agreed on Twitter to meet downtown. It appeared that several of those arrested had not met in person before Saturday, authorities said.

The two victims were bruised during the attack but were in good condition and declined medical treatment, authorities said.

Saturday night's incidents were what some officers describe as "wildings," where large groups of teens swarm the downtown area and cause an array of disturbances.

  1. I comment that it has been liberalism, whereby many live in clientelism and in dependency upon transfer payments presenting not only moral hazard but also ethical hazard as well.

    Moral hazard is defined as the financial risk arising to a third party, that comes from an exchange between two contracting individuals. Ethics is defined as right relations with others that reflects virtues, that is beneficial speech and behavior. Ethical hazard is defined as the hazard to one’s virtues arising through predatory and libertine lifestyle of others.

    Wikipedia provides an excellent definition of Clientelism as well as transfer payments.

    Risk to financial moral functioning and ethical living comes by Francois Hollande’s proposal for European Socialism economic stimulation, as Mike Mish Shedlock writes Hollande announces 20 “confidence shock” measures to support home building Francois Hollande is a career politician; the very epitome of European Socialism, yes the poster adult of European Socialism. He is one disconnected, just like those who elected him, from economic reality, specifically that government debt, whether it be national treasury debt or municipal debt, is a minotaur of destruction. He ran on the platform of economic stimulus and won the election; unfortunately economic stimulus at this point will not help, as Mike Mish Shedlock describes that the economy of France is imploding.

    Living in the inner city, and being low income, I testify that risk to one’s ethics comes by Social Security Disability payments to those who could work but choose a life of dependency who usually conduct themselves negatively in the lives of others by being being predatory manifesting in sociopathic and psychopathic behavior, or by being libertine and living in abandon. Such individuals often include returning veterans, those released from prison for violent crimes, and silly young women, who have gotten themselves pregnant by men who can’t hold, or do not hold jobs, that support a family; these women often go on TANF, and from there often find they cannot take the pressure of a full time time and go on to give up their children to adoption; I continually see these loose dogs, as Urban Dictionary puts it, roaming the downtown area.

    Some are motivated by preeminence, others by confrontation, others by being busy bodies, others by being gossips, and other by being dependent upon dole even though they could work. A culture of sycophantic codependency surrounding Social Security Disability Payments has risen to facilitate these financial morally injurious and ethically harmful carnal dispositions. Today’s cultural toady’s include Social Security Disability Lawyers and Public Housing Authorities. Obtaining social security disability payments becomes a pivotal point in one’s life, where many became involved in a culture of dependency, with an ensuing psychopathic predatory lifestyle, or alcohol dependent lifestyle. A second generation and even third generation of LBJ’s grandchildren develop who fail to receive moral and virtue education at home, and go on to expect social support and even riot in the streets, yes manifesting in "wildings," where large groups of teens swarm the downtown area and cause an array of disturbances.
