Teenage Girls Charged with Robberies at U of C

CBS Chicago, October 18, 2012

Four teenage girls have been charged with robbing two University of Chicago students at gunpoint.

Police said two of the girls approached a 28-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man as they were walking in the 5600 block of South Blackstone Avenue, shortly after midnight on Tuesday.

A 14-year-old girl allegedly displayed a handgun, while a 15-year-old girl demanded the victims’ backpacks. The man handed over his backpack, but the woman did not, and the 14-year-old allegedly pistol-whipped her. As she was hitting the woman, the gun went off, but no one was struck by the bullet, police said.

The robbers fled the scene, but were captured a short time later. {snip}

Another suspect was found after police on patrol spotted a car going the wrong way at 48th street and Dorchester Avenue. The car crashed when the officers tried to stop it. A 16-year-old girl inside ran away, but was caught, and later admitted to being the getaway driver.

The fourth suspect, a 17-year-old girl, was arrested in south suburban Calumet Park, around 2:45 a.m. It was not immediately clear what her role was in the robbery.

    When I read stuff like this, I really get excited about the presidential race.  Which festering black ghetto will explode FIRST in a wave of looting, burning and gunfire on the night of the election:

    a)  Detroit
    b)  Chicago
    c)  Los Angeles

    • Dont forget about east st. louis, atlanta, philly

      • MerlinV

        Hopefully the National Guard will be ready to control any simian behavior such has been threatened. Live ammunition may be required.

        • My guess is that it will be spontaneous, just like the King assasination in 1968, with the biggest riots occurring in the big cities. New York will probably have the biggest one, followed by Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Detroit and Chicago.

          On Election night, I’ll stay indoors, after coming back from voting. Going to work the next day, will be tricky – I’m seriously thinking of taking Alex and Bill to work with me.

      Oakland and Hunters Point in SF too,

      Also Camden, Baltimore, Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, Buffalo, Oakland and other centers of black erudition.

    Again, it’s a good thing the victims didn’t have legally owed and carried hand-guns like George Zimmerman did.  Otherwise the victims may be facing murder charges, like George Zimmerman is.  

    They really lucked out by just having to take a beating.  I’d take a pistol whippin’ from a black girl than be tried for killing her, in self defense, any day of the week! 

    This must be what Tim Wise meant by “white privilege”.

      Not me .. Course I’m not a wimp .. I’d rather do prison time than to let them win or steal a damn thing from me..

      • Detroit_WASP

        I was joking.  I carry a  a .38 and would have dropped her like a rock if she assaulted me.

    • youhavetherighttoremainsilent

       what a cowardly statement and your beating could leave you paralyzed or disabled too.

      • Detroit_WASP

        I guess you don’t know a joke when you see one.

  • MerlinV

    This ties in with the early black maturation story above. By age eight or nine blacks are already capable of contemplating adult oriented criminal behavior. Whites and Asians with their longer gestation periods and slower maturation are easy prey for blacks.

    • youhavetherighttoremainsilent

      blacks run drugs and act as lookouts at 7 years old 

  • youhavetherighttoremainsilent

      Any firearm purchased online, from GunBroker or anywhere else, must be shipped to a FFL shop, where the purchaser’s ID will be checked and a federal background check will be made. I know because I bought a handgun through GunBroker a couple of years ago. Even gun shows check IDs. So the only ways an underage kid can get a gun are theft and the black market.

      • youhavetherighttoremainsilent

         wrong antique and blk powder exempt

      • youhavetherighttoremainsilent

         powerful fully functional handguns which fire cased ammo made 1883 or before are exempt and WILL BE SHIPPED OVERNIGHT DIRECTLY TO YOU IN ACCORDANCE TO ALL US LAWS look online they are everywhere.

      • youhavetherighttoremainsilent

         not to mention estate auctions 

  • Hipsters beware! LaNeesha would like a word with you ….

  • Oil Can Harry

    They don’t need guns! Didn’t you see the end of the clip where it was revealed the students were given whistles?

    So the next time a flash mob attacks you- like on Election night if Romney wins- just blow your whistle.

    MUCH better than having a gun… 

    • Oil Can, much like the “rape whistles” that feminists like Susan Brownmiller advocated back in the 1970’s. She actually thought they were deterrents. 

  • MikeofAges

    Ahhhh, my old neighborhood.  I know the exact street. Sen Paul Douglas’s apartment was right on that block. His apartment, not that he actually lived there. He lived in New York and DC

    “I would guess a good lawyer could site a bunch of these attacks and
    convince any jury that the student had a right and reasonable cause to
    carry a gun, regardless of stupid and illegal illinois laws to the

    We live in uncertain, diverse times.  Guilt or innocence depends on the jury.  How’d you like to face a jury made up of Howard grads?  Evidence would be completely irrelevant if they were out for blood.

    Teen girls, not yoofs? The female’s of color (black & brown) are just as dangerous as the males.

    “Two girls have been charged with murder in a South Texas drive-by shooting that left a 17-year-old innocent bystander dead.”

  • Barrack Osama

    It was obviously two Mormon girls. If Romney had two daughters…

  • KenelmDigby

    Their men are dangerous.
    Their women are dangerous.
    Their children are dangerous
    Their old folk are dangerous.

    A people best avoided methinks.

    • Strider73

      Like rattlesnakes, alligators, scorpions, black widow spiders and the like, they are inherently dangerous. Avoid when possible, kill when necessary (except in Illinois, where self-defense is illegal).

      In related news, an airheaded Cook County (Chicago) commissioner wants to impose a punitive “violence tax” on guns and ammo purchased in the county. As if guns or bullets have free will. An honest violence tax would have to be imposed on blacks themselves — a sales tax surcharge, perhaps.

      • The Cook County commissioner who proposed that, is a Bantu. 

  • Sloppo

    Why did they call the perpetrators “girls”?  They’re youths which happen to be young and female.

  • John Bonham

    Let me guess … Really I don’t even have to..

    • They probably have names like Shaneekwa, Shakwana or Kaneesha.

  • Up to my neck in CA

    They had lap top computers, lap tops = quick money at a pawn shop/drug dealers
    The sad thing is these worthless “human beings” take away everything these hard working students have worked on with their computers..essays, home work, notes from classes, everything.
    The worst part of our society continues to destroy the hard working best part of our society. When does it end?

      It ends in blood.

  • their inability to comprehend abstractions such as “the future” means that they will indeed  engage in massive COs. This will only serve to convert more DWLs and SWPLs into SBLDLs  and AR members.

  • youhavetherighttoremainsilent

    wrong. antique handguns and black powder handguns ship directly not to mention a percentage of dealers will just ship to you regardless of the law if they are going to get paid  some dont care. 

  • First your TV Tim,  Then your daughter  then your life,  I would choose to stop it before it started.  I’d shoot someone for stealing my TV, cause that would mean they are a burglar and if i had been home I might be leaving feet first.  I don’t know, but too many people allow themselves  to be victims.  IMO
