Accused Limo Mob Was Shooting Music Video

Anthony Ponce and Charlie Wojciechowski, NBC 5 Chicago, July 9, 2012

Relatives of four men arrested for allegedly attacking random people in Wrigleyville Sunday morning said the group was shooting a music video.

Family members said the group, which goes by the name Chicago Maverick, was shooting a video for a song called “Take a Sip.” They said the group was being taunted by people on the street and was the target of racial epithets.

The incident happened just after 1 a.m. Sunday. Police said the group jumped out of a white stretch limousine and started attacking people on the 3500 block of North Clark Street, a block from Wrigley Field, while someone else videotaped the attack from the inside the limo.

Three men, ages 22, 27 and 27, were injured, police said. One of the 27-year-old victims was treated for a broken jaw at Illinois Masonic Hospital. The others sustained minor injuries.

Police said an officer was slightly injured while taking one of the men into custody. {snip}

Police said there was no indication this was a racially motivated attack, but detectives said they are looking into all possibilities.

    Watch WSHH for “Take a Sip.”

    Implying the victim isn’t black.

    “They said the group was being taunted by people on the street and was the target of racial epithets.”

    Just another instance of the tiresome “All Eyez On Me” attitude so many of ‘these people’ have.

    Is there anything more dangerous than an aspiring rapper?

    • Fathercoughlin

      Its not all bad news:Many an aspiring rapper has met an early(and tragic) demise.

  • Son of Abraham

    Yes, indeed, another group of brave black warriors.

    • vladdy1

      Hey, it ain’t easy to beat down a single, carefully-chosen victim with only 5 or 6 homies, and the kicking in the head part is REALLY hard.

    They said the group was being taunted by people on the street and was the target of racial epithets.

    However – on the OTHER hand…

    Police said there was no indication this was a racially motivated attack

    Leftist journalists (meaning 90+% of journalists), must pride themselves on their own stupidity.

  • Not that it matters. But Chicago is the town I was born and raised in. Wrigleyville is the area that is home to Chicagolands largest gay community.

    •  I think it does matter.  If thug blacks are looking for “easy target” whites, they’ll hoof it to the LGBTQMIALOLPLPLTH part of town.  Incidentally, this is a good hook to get gay whites into the WN-RR community.

         It is wrong to attack, beat, shoot, rape or kill anyone.

        • Sherman_McCoy

          Should be posted above the blackboard in every black elementary school classroom.

          • or on billboards like in South Africa

          • vladdy1

            Send those to Rahm. I think he can use ’em.

        • vladdy1

          I don’t think you need to tell the people on this board that. It’s okay to point out that a certain area is a gay area and is certainly not condoning the act.
          Go to World Star Hip Hop and post that message — they’re the ones who need it.

    • IstvanIN

       Oh, so if the victims were gay then the attack was justified?  What if the victims were gay and used a racial slur while being beaten, would you have the victims imprisoned on racial hate crime charges??

    • NM156

      Eh, sorta. The queers don’t hang out on Clark though. They hang out on Halsted and on Sheffield. Andersonville has taken away a lot of gay business from Lakeview (which includes Wrigleyville). Even so, no one hanging out and drinking on Clark is capable of harassing blacks. It’s an impossibility.


      • Even so, no one hanging out and drinking on Clark is capable of harassing blacks.

        Agree 100%. 

  • I see they wasted no time in pulling out the race card, in an effort to defend their thuggish behavior, inspired by hate no doubt!

  • If Obama had four sons “shooting a video…”

  • ‘It was all a big misunderstanding’.

    I agree. Most people misunderstand black behavior to their detriment.

      As if that lame excuse would clear everything up, with no charges filed.

  • NM156

    Wrigleyville is full of liberals of suburban origin and hipsters from all over the US. Not one would taunt a car full of blacks. The neighborhood hasn’t been working-class white in 30 years, so drunk white guys in flannel shirts attacking blacks is not a possibility.

  • Up to my neck in CA

    They probably thought they were……since de be street smart.

    • Sherman_McCoy

      Yeah, “street smart” = “road scholar.”

  • NM156

    No queers roaming around on Clark. These thugs wanted to beat on hipsters and whitey Cubs fans.

  • Biff_Maliboo

     Bingo!

  • Sherman_McCoy

    Look for his picture in the dictionary under the definition of the word “simian.”

    • Wonder if they went to Simeon Career Academy? 
      Yes the pronunciation is the same. 

  • Sherman_McCoy

    Yes, let us pray that they all “make good.”

    • vladdy1

      now that they’ve changed their lives around

  • brew730

    I’m gonna call BS on their excuse that they were racially taunted.  No, they just got worked up into a lather and had to release their animal instincts.  The irony on the racial taunting is, you can play back the footage that they recorded and I’m sure you hear the word Nigga about a thousand times!  Turn the tables and “Oh, the pain of hearing that word!” HA

  • RobRoySimmons

    What the anti-white liberals hope is that we actually never ask or interogate people like these perps as to their motivations, much less their “culture and enviroment” which shaped them.

  • They’re all going back to NU. Everyone of them is a convicted felon.

  • jackryanvb

    Wrigleyville looks like a White 20s ex Frat guys and gals kind of scene on weekends. Lots of Chicago including Downtown close down fairly early by New York City standards so if you want to go where there is “action” girls, people to rob, beat up – Wrigleyville is a good place to go. Black criminals rob and attack White people who are drunk and wandering the streets late at night/early in the morning.

  • mikejones91

    The double standard is now standardized.

  • mikejones91

    Thats honestly one of “their” main attributes that brought me to realism. The kicking of the head to an unconscious victim. I say this in all honestly when I say this is almost black exclusive. 

  • As you know, Arnold Schwartzenegger is Austrian by birth. His last  name in English means “black negro”.

  • vladdy1

    PR stunt — the kind rgeiur audience admires.
