...I noticed, though, that there was NO mention as to race in the entire article. It's a new 'policy trend' in the liberal media. Heaven forbid we should be informed citizens to allow us to be wary in a dangerous area or from a specific culture of people...but the comments cleared up the confusion real quick. Be sure to read the 'after story'. Political correctness may have some limited uses, but not when it endangers people's lives.
Teen Mob Hits Walgreens on the Mag Mile
June 23, 2011 6:31 PM
CHICAGO (CBS) — The teenage robbery mobs are at it again on North Michigan Avenue.
Some 50 young people barged into a Walgreens at Michigan and Chicago on the Magnificent Mile on Tuesday afternoon. They took bottled drinks and sandwiches off the shelves, then ran off, CBS 2′s Suzanne Le Mignot reports.
A police report says authorities were able to nab three of the thieves.
Walgreens says the store is working with police, helping investigators with video from the store security camera.
The Mag Mile earlier this year was hit by similar mobs of young thieves. Attacks on commuters and bicyclists have become violent, and police have stepped up patrols.
