10 Arrested in Student Brawl Near Proviso East High School

NBC 5 (Chicago), June 7, 2013

Students leaving Proviso East High School on their last day of school May 31 were involved in a fight that carried into the streets of Maywood for several hours, police said.

At least 10 students were arrested, including a girl allegedly using two chef’s knives after being beaten down by other students, and the fight required more than 40 officers from neighboring agencies including Oak Park, Forest Park, Westchester, Bellwood and Broadview, Maywood Police Chief Tim Curry said.

At times the group was 300 strong, Curry said, with people gathering to watch the disturbance.


The district also said that witness accounts show that other adults and former students joined in the disturbance.


Maywood Police reportedly said the fight tied up police for hours and is still under investigation.

  • Last day of “Skoo” — I guess Bellcurvius just had to get one last fight in before summer vacation started.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      The fighting, flash mobbing, polar bear hunting, knock-out games haven’t begun yet – it’s supposed to be a LONG, HOT summer and it’s just beginning…

      At least in school they’re contained and off the streets most of the day — now they’re free — and feral.


  • Tinfoil A22hat

    These vibrant youths are obviously distraught at losing access to the school’s library and chemistry labs for a couple of months. Just thinking of all the interrupted and possibly lost groundbreaking research that these scholars were producing sends me into a fine rage as well.

    • The__Bobster

      I’m sure they still find a way to get few meals at dat skoo, nome sane?

      Either that, or it was the sheer joy of contemplating all the summer “enrichment programs” that they’ll be enjoying.

  • bigone4u

    Count this one as a ghetto fail since no one was shot or killed. Don’t worry though, these pavement pounders will get another chance to celebrate on July 4. And the fireworks won’t be firecrackers.

  • Hello? White people in the Chicago area?
    How much longer are you going to put up with this?
    Every week there’s some story about black misbehavior, yet nothing is ever done.

    • OlderWoman

      A Chicago police blog report says Rahm tells the press that criminal activity has decreased by 13%.

    • MBlanc46

      It’s not just the Chicago area. Black violence seems to be more blatant and more aggressive everywhere in the US where there is a large Negro population.

      • Johnny Clay

        It’s gotten worse since Obama’s election.

        • MBlanc46

          I believe that’s probably the case, but absent hard empirical data I’d be very suspect of claims of causality.

    • NM156

      Put up with what? Whites self-segregated decades ago. These Western suburbs like Maywood and the W and S sides of the city were abandoned generations ago by whites. Chicago Metro is the most segregated urban area in the US. It’s the only way to coexist.

  • NeanderthalDNA

    Natural behavior. Look at ’em. Just like us, eh Mr. Wise? Go ahead Tim, send your kids to that school buddy. Put your progeny where your mouth is and subject your kids to that form of institutionalized abuse.

    Because that’s what integrated schools are – institutionalized, ritualized abuse of poor whites who must endure association with homo africanus and his brutal, stupid, and destructive r-style lifestyle.

    That’s just how they roll, whitey! Sure, whitey, give that scorpion a ride to the other side and gasp in shock when it shows you it’s true nature…

    Woot woot! Raise the roof! They just doing what comes natural. And they’re just like us! See?

  • A Freespeechzone

    Why would anyone expect anything else from unruly, undisciplined and violent blacks?

    Notice that adults became involved in this violent act….just part of the Chicago banta family values.

    Glad I live where it’s not ‘diverse’ and have to tolerate that kind of behavior…

  • WowReally

    I’m impressed they could be within 100 yards of a school without melting. Impressive indeed considering education is the black’s kryptonite.

    • MBlanc46

      Probably not a lot of education goes on there.

  • The__Bobster

    The district also said that witness accounts show that other adults and former students joined in the disturbance.

    Typical Bantu Behavior has no age limit.

  • APaige

    If only they had more Advanced Placement classes large scale fights would not happen.

  • MBlanc46

    We live in Proviso Township, though we’re in the West High district. West is not quite the hell hole that East is, but you wouldn’t want to send your kids there. My wife is an East alum, but that was a long time ago, when there were still whites in Maywood. Her younger brother experienced a lot of racial harassment a few years later. East is where Fred Hampton got his start as a racial troublemaker.

    Was this a random and spontaneous reaction to a You Tube video?

    At least 10 students were arrested… the fight required more than 40 officers from neighboring agencies.

    These are the Chicago Values, Michelle Obama bragged about!!

    First Lady Michelle Obama told David Letterman that she and President Obama try to instill the values of south Chicago in their daughters.

    ‘For us, it’s the values. The thing that we try to do is make sure… our residence that it feels like the south side of Chicago!’


    Chicago values!!


    • MBlanc46

      Chicagoans are essentially decent, friendly, hardworking, down-to-earth folks. If the people of Mississippi, Tennessee, and Arkansas hadn’t dumped a million or so blacks that they no longer wanted on us in the 1940s-60s, Chicago would still be the gem of the prairie. We should be the ones seeking reparations.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Same in Los Angeles before 20 million or so unwanted Mexicans and Central Americans were dumped on us. The beautiful, amazing, once-clean city we Whites built has almost been destroyed. And yes, we deserve reparations for the destruction — of our once first-rate schools, freeways, neighborhoods, beaches, infrastructure — caused by this parasitic, tax-eating brown tidal wave.

        If it weren’t for this wretched mass of uneducated, low skilled, low IQ’d humanity, Los Angeles would still be a first-rate, amazing, wonderful White city on the edge of the West Coast.

        We are being reduced to third world rubble.


        • MBlanc46

          Just about every major city in the country, and a lot of minor ones, have been invaded and overwhelmed by people of color.

      • skara_brae

        Well said. And go Blackhawks.

      • jane johnson

        How did the three states that you mentioned “dump” blacks on y’all? I’ve never heard that before.

        • Alexandra1973

          During the meatpacking strike in 1904 they were carting in blacks by the truckload.

          Ever read “The Jungle”? Yeah, Sinclair was a Socialist…but you see some realism in there. He described blacks as “stupid Negroes” if I recall the wording…haven’t read it in a while.

          • jane johnson

            I read The Jungle decades ago, and we discussed the old muckraker (love that term) in a history class that I took last semester. He ran for Congress twice as a socialist, and for governor of California as a democrat, but lost every time. He was caught in the political crossfire of the times, with the communist workers party alienating socialists by portraying him as a capitalist, while conservatives claimed that his EPIC (end poverty in California) was an attempted communist takeover of the state. Sorry about the digression, but those were interesting times.

            During the strike that you mentioned, were the meatpackers unionized? If so, WHO was bringing in the scabs? And why blacks?

        • MBlanc46

          The mechanization of cotton culture made the sharecropping system unnecessary by the 1950s. Whereas before the war, the planters and their functionaries took great pains to keep blacks on the plantations (copies of the Chicago Defender, which encouraged blacks to emigrate to the north, were confiscated in the south), during and after the war millions of blacks were allowed to leave without hindrance. The blacks had little choice, as they could no longer find the only work that they could do–cotton culture. They came by the millions in what is known as the Great Migration, often arriving in northern cities penniless. The planters no longer needed all that black labor, so they dumped them on us. (I mention those states in particular, because they were the source of most of the emigrants to Chicago.)

          • jane johnson

            Of course, I’ve heard of the Great Migration, but I’ve never before heard it described as negro-dumping on the part of southern states.
            I have, however, heard the great state of Illinois described as the “Land of Lincoln”. That being said, in 1862, during the War of Northern Aggression, a certain document was signed into law and enacted in 1863. That document made it literally impossible for any southern state to “dump” negroes anywhere. From that point on, our dusky brethren could go anywhere they damned well pleased. Unfortunately, not nearly enough of them left the south.

          • MBlanc46

            Their freedom of movement was seriously restricted during Jim Crow. They also formally had the suffrage, but southern whites saw that few of them actually voted. When they were no longer required to cultivate cotton, no one cared whether they got a bus or a train, or walked, from, say, Clarksdale to Chicago.

        • evilsandmich

          Black migration was the price the north had to pay for getting rid of segregation laws in the south. Guess they should have thought that one through a little harder.

  • Spartacus

    It’s cuzza slavry !

  • QuinnTheEskimo9

    IQs of 80 against IQs of 100? Easy call.

    I’d bet everything I have on Whites, even if we were matched one-for-one against blacks. Use of weapons alone puts the odds in our favor. How many blacks can shoot anything except at point-blank range?…and even then. Sideways shooting? HA HA, let ’em. We have use of strategy, distance and knowledge of weaponry in our favor. Blacks have?….nothing.

    It would be and easy (no) match, like shooting fish in a barrel — a very small barrel.

    Where can I place my bet?

  • Alexandra1973

    That’s news?

    I remember my 8th grade graduation in 1987. After it was over two black girls were in a huge catfight in the schoolyard. Forget WWE!

  • MBlanc46

    I did reply to this about ten hours ago, but apparently my post didn’t register. What I said was that I do remember those Packers teams of the late 1950s and 1960s, but didn’t know that Ray Nitschke was a Proviso East guy.
