IL: Chicago security guard wards off attacker with his pistol

Appears to me the security guard may have tried to draw pepper spray and the attackers got it away from him.

This was apparently a sub-event to this: MOB-NIFICENT! 21 arrested after "large groups" of juveniles flood Mag Mile and River North

Wow! ...

"A second CPD source said the arrests were part of a new policing strategy that calls for officers to apply a firmer hand to non-compliant mobs. Last year, police executives chose to take the path of least resistance by minimizing arrests and coaxing the massive groups back on to Red Line trains bound for the South Side. The tactic of pushing wild groups of teens onto subway platforms and trains filled with unsuspecting citizens resulted in several innocent persons being attacked and even robbed by the mobs in CTA tunnels and trains."

The violence there is so rampant and out of control, it's mind boggling. I know the State Dept. issues travel warnings in areas for travellers going abroad. Is there an equivalent type of alert for domestic travel? Well if not, there should be!

Very informative ELB. Thanks for posting.

“May 6th when up to 300 juveniles were reportedly involved in mob action that included several robberies and attacks on tourists”

An update to the first link I posted said the security guard was escorting the two thugs from McD's when one of them hit him in the head with a bottle.

Here's another take on the incident: No one had a problem with an old man being beaten until he drew a gun.

Some more background:
CHICAGO (CBS) — In the past month Chicago police have been called more than 30 times to a McDonald’s that was the scene of a viral video seen on CBS 2 earlier this week.



The Red Line is just steps from the McDonald’s and is often a meeting point and, in some cases, the starting point for problems.
