Alert: Group of Girls Hail Cab, Then Choke, Rob Driver

Amara Walker, My Fox Chicago, January 16, 2013

The Chicago Police Department has issued an alert in the 2nd District of Wentworth for several armed robberies that have occurred during the month of January.

The offenders, described as six to seven African American females with a light completion between the ages of 16 and 20, enter cabs in the Loop.

Upon arrival to their destinations on the South Side, one of the girls chokes the driver with a rope or cord, while another threatens the cab driver with a knife, demanding cash. Authorities say the group then jumps out of the cab.


One cab driver told FOX 32’s Amara Walker that the robberies don’t surprise him and safety is always a concern. Cab driver Ahmad Shakir says he’s been robbed before.

“As far as safety is concerned, we should divert going in the dark areas where there are not people, silent areas, or alleys,” Shakir says.

    There are no white cabbies in big cities so these specimens are likely robbing Indians and Arabs.

    • One reptile devours another. Why should we care?

      • anonymous

        they will blame ‘racism’ between two nonwhite groups on whites. Go onto Youtube where they talk about stuff like this and blacks on that page will always say “racism was invented by whites” or “those whites want us fighting” Blacks can’t fathom the idea that other races–besides whites–don’t much care for them and avoid being around them.

        • TheTRUTH

          Of course no other races want to be around blacks. As usual, blacks have done that to themselves. Other than White liberals, blacks will NEVER have any allies. Arabs, Orientals, Hispanics, etc all experience black crime, directly or indirectly. That will never change. As Whites become a smaller percentage of the population, expect black-on-non White crime to increase as well…for whatever it’s worth, if anything at all.

  • BernieGoetzFan

    I have heard of Arab cab drivers setting traps for the black criminals. Would surely be a shame if they retaliate against these blacks.

    • The__Bobster

      I haven’t…….but I would like to.

    ‘As far as safety is concerned, we should divert going in the dark areas where there are not people, silent areas, or alleys,’ Shakir says.

    Because he obviously doesn’t speak English too well, he inadvertently said exactly the right thing.

    He meant areas without lighting.
    However, it came out (properly): ‘areas with dark people.’

    Other than that, the only thing of note in the above MSM article is they actually named the race of the perps.

    • mattj458

      Stay where there are whites! I mean lights!

  • josh

    My heart bleeds for Mr. Shakir! Just another wonderful immigrant who came here for a better life blah blah blah. And I wonder if those “females” are really females;black trannies/gays can be mighty real!!

    • Flossie

      No, they’re really females. They may not be everyone’s idea of feminine, but they’re definitely females . . . of a sort. There’s been a rash of black girl gangs attacking lone individuals here in Chicago recently.

  • resperation for slaver

    alert……ALERT!! i saw a black person……

  • Josey Wales

    “As far as safety is concerned, we should divert going in the dark areas where there are not people, silent areas, or alleys,” Shakir says. No, shakir, where safety is concerned, NEVER pick up blacks for ANY reason. EVER !

  • StillModerated

    Wentworth is the same area where black policemen released Christine Eilman. It’s close to the Robert Taylor Homes. And now the man gots ta to pay up for their evil, racist, imcompetence.

  • Some Guy

    Paging Mr. Glover, Mr. Danny Glover. This is why cabs do not stop for blacks.
    Instead of crying that they don’t stop why don’t you take a hard look at why they don’t stop. It’s easier to cry rayciss than it is to look at the root causes.

    • Svigor

      As if Glover would ever have gotten anywhere near a Hollywood set if he were white. It is to laff. No, semi-literate, semi-articulate whites with small brains and bad attitudes do not get near movie sets; only blacks.

      Another example of black privilege.

      • Some Guy

        I agree, i don’t think he was acting in The Color Purple, just being himself.

  • IKantunderstand

    I think what he meant to say was:” We should divert going in the areas where there are dark people, silent areas or alleys.” To be honest, I really don’t care what happens to anyone named Ahmad Shakir.

    • tremendouscoast

      The enemy of my enemy is my friend! Do we really have the luxury of rejecting potential supporters that may otherwise share our race realism ideology?

      • IstvanIN

        There shouldn’t be any Ahmad Shakir’s in America to begin with.

      • IKantunderstand

        Are you nuts? Let me be perfectly clear: Anyone named Ahmad Shakir, is not, I repeat, NOT on our side. And because you have trotted out this bedraggled trope, you sir/madam are under suspicion.

        • tremendouscoast

          Suspicion?? I am as much of a race realist as anyone on Amren, I promise. Agreed that the “Ahmad Shakirs” of the world shouldn’t have been allowed here but if they are realistic about blacks…

          • TheTRUTH

            I feel the same. The enemy of my enemy is my friend…or at least not hated much. Blacks will always be enemy number one for me (actually, number two behind White liberals). Sorry but Arabs, Hispanics, Asians, etc typically want a better lives for themselves and tend to leave us Whites alone. Those things, among others, separate them from blacks. I’m not saying I wouldn’t prefer an all-White USA if given the choice, but it is what it is and if picking sides, it should be everyone vs blacks. On this board that’s not the case, obviously. Of course, as far as the big picture is concerned, nothing we really think here will matter much anyway.

      • dhs

        You make a good point, but it raises another point. Why should any group want to become allied with white men?

        • liberalsuck

          Because we create good civilizations and you are safer being a minority in a predominately white setting than among any other group setting.

        • Svigor

          That’s a question, not a point. Here’s another question: why should whites want any group as allies?

          • tremendouscoast

            Because we don’t have the luxury of NOT doing so. I am amazed at how white rights (racial realist) groups fight among themselves, often over the smallest things as whether someone is ideologically or ethnically pure ehough to be in the club.
            As for who could possibly be our allies. What about the Asians? They work hard, achieve and are prosperous. They also suffer from affirmative action. Some assimilated, white Hispanics may also be a possibility. There is no love lost between Hispanics and blacks. Full disclosure here – I am a white person of European Spanish/English ancestry who has nothing for political correctness, multicuturalism and illegal immigration. And no, I need no one’s permission or blessing to be a race realist and follower of Amren.

          • tremendouscoast

            I know the Stormfront/Carolyn Yeager crowd won’t like this but there are even some Jews who are quite realistic as to black/multiculturalism and can be possible allies.

          • TheTRUTH

            I think we can have allies who are non-White, but those who post here would never have any of it. It’s all a shame because there is no question that blacks are the most dangerous and White-hating group in this country. They always have been and always will be. In fact, they are menace number one for EVERY single race/ethnicity in this country. That will always be a fact as the big picture continues to roll on. There’s a reason why most White people don’t feel threatened in their city’s Chinatown. There’s a reason why so many Whites (non liberal) marry Hispanics and Asians. There will always be exceptions, but as a whole, Asians & Hispanics are not serious threats to White people. Anyway, doesn’t matter who thinks they are right. Things will roll on as they are.

      • rightrightright

        No friend.

        This liberal had her reasons for acting against her dogma of left-wing mush when it came to her own daughter’s safety. I surmise that she knew what Muslim cab drivers get up to with young girls but chose to keep her mouth shut.

        It’s out in the open now. Muslim cab drivers are key in the rape and pimping of English girls.

        If this two-faced witch and others of her kind had spoken out back in 2008, thousands of children could have been saved.

        I understand you are getting the rape-the-children jihad via your Somalian imports.

        The enemy of your enemy means you have two enemies here.

  • bigone4u

    Good grief, another reason to stay out of Chicago as if there weren’t enough already. The problem is that there are very few cities not to stay out of.

  • tremendouscoast

    I used to drive a cab on weekends and summers during college and while waiting for bar exam results. NOTHING upset me more than when some upper middle class yuppie would call you a racist for not wanting to pick up young black males at night. My response was “why don’t you pick them up?” They would usually stammer and try to give a sociological explanation about poverty, racism, etc. I hate such phoney hypocrites!! We had black drviers who acted no different than we did in such situations.

  • Howard W. Campbell

    There is the TV show called “Bait Car”, I wonder if it would be possible to create a “Bait Cab”.

    • Non Humans

      That show was hilarious! “I wuz jes borrowin it from muh cuz…” Give me a break.
      No need to get so expensive. Set a bucket of KFC with a Rolex in the bottom of it on any ghetto sidewalk and get ready to pounce. Grand-Theft arrest made super easy.

  • In Chicago cab drivers have to pick up robbers and fare skippers. If they do not they are fined and could lose their license. The penalty for not picking up a robber is worse than the penalty for robbing a cabdriver.

    • Svigor

      Black privilege; being useless bags of skin means the rest of us must be put in harm’s way.

  • a multiracial individual

    Why don’t police departments conduct more sting operations with robbers? I mean they could follow a bait victim (an undercover cop) and nab tons of these sordid characters.

    • Anonymous By Necessity

      You mean like the STRESS (Stop the Robberies and Enjoy Safe Streets) initiative in Detroit?

      Seems like that had a disparate impact on certain demographics and had to be stopped.

      • Svigor

        Black privilege again.

    • Charles_Peterson

      Their isn’t enough prison or jail cells for all of them that’s why.

  • LastBastionOfHope

    Black females are essentially men when compared to any other race of females. They are full of testosterone, usually very large, very loud, very aggressive. You can honestly mistake them for men especially if they cut their hair like black men which many do. Even the way they dress with Air Jordan sneakers…it’s all masculine.

    • TheTRUTH

      VERY true. In fact, EVERY time I see an article about women attacking/robbing, etc. I know they are black. Every single time.

  • JohnEngelman

    In one of Michael Moore’s skits he had a black physician wearing a suit and a white ex con wearing scruffy clothing each hale the same cab. Every cab driver took the white ex con. It would have been less funny if he had shown the races of the cab drivers. I am confident that many of them were black.

    • liberalsuck

      maybe they should ask Michael Moore why if he doesn’t fear blacks that he lives far away from them?

      • tremendouscoast

        White liberals are phonies who say all of the right things about race but act no different in their daily lives than Amren followers. And most are completely oblivious to that fact and have a nice, rational, non-racial reason as to why they do so.

        • TheTRUTH

          White liberals = Our WORST enemies

    • tremendouscoast

      I drove a cab in college on weekends and can tell you that black cab drivers acted no different than we did when it came to picking up young black males, especially at night.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      Since I am a white ex-con, how the (blank) would you know what one would look like?

      • JohnEngelman

        In Michael Moore’s skit the white ex con was deliberately dressed in a scruffy manner.

  • Vitam41

    I own a cab company, the reputation of certain groups of people, are the reason they have trouble getting cabs.

    • Svigor

      Right. It’s not just the higher risk of crime, when it comes to blacks. It’s their general disagreeableness. They’re rude, they complain too much, they’re stupid, they don’t tip, etc.

      • Vitam41

        YOu are exactly right! One thing that inner city blacks do is, when it is time to collect their fare, they make the driver lean all the way back, and take their money, almost to suggest that the driver is forcing them to pay! Gimme gimme gimme, they want everything free!

      • tremendouscoast

        As a whole, blacks were the worst tippers and gay males the best (and no, you didn’t have to “date” them for the tip).

  • scutum

    The truth is there are almost nowhite people living in our large cities so the victims of these robberies areother non-whites. The once great cities of the United States have become third
    world hell holes indistinguishable from Mogadishu or Rio de Janeiro. As I’ve
    noted before on this site this is all being done on purpose by the cultural Marxists
    who control our institutions are bent on destroying Capitalism and the United
    States. They believe that once they destroy our nation’s institutions they can
    then impose their vision of a Marxist utopia on the rest of us. Think Cambodia,
    Mao’s China or Stalin’s Soviet Union. That’s why they want to take our guns
    away from us, so we cannot resist.

  • Svigor

    And people wonder why “white privilege” includes not being passed over by taxi drivers.

    This is the kind of thing I like to re-frame. What we actually have is yet another example of black privilege; despite their unworthiness for consideration, the gov’t-media-academia complex take it upon themselves to persuade taxi drivers to consider them anyway, solely because they’re black.

  • LHathaway

    “he had a black physician wearing a suit and a white ex con wearing scruffy clothing each hale the same cab. Every cab driver took the white ex con”.

    What if a cab driver took the guy in the suit and not the white ex-con? You can bet it someone didn’t make the movie. Why not just say, ‘we’re making a movie here. . ‘

    Why isn’t it an issue that there are so few white cab drivers in big cities? Might an examination of that topic not fit the narrative? Apparently, not everyone must be counted by race.
