It’s no secret Chicago is one of the most dangerous cities in America, and while Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy insist crime is on the decline, it closer to the Mayor on Friday night, when his son was robbed near their cushy home on the north side of the city.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

Zach Emanuel was talking on his cell phone on the street in the 4200 block of North Hermitage Avenue in the Ravenswood neighborhood when two unknown males approached him from behind, according to the police report.

One of them “placed his arm around the victim’s neck in a rear chokehold,” and the second one struck the teen with a fist, knocking him to the ground. The robbers took the teen’s cell phone and patted him down, the police report said.

“The offenders then asked the victim ‘What else you got?’ (and) forced the victim to enter his security code to unlock the phone,” the police report said.

The robbers then ran away. The teen was treated for cuts and bruises on his face by a personal physician at his home, according to the report.

The Chicago Police Crime Data Portal reports that shooting incidents are up 10% from 2013, with aggravated batteries and criminal sexual assaults up 2%. reports there have been 435 homicides across the city in 2014.

Aldermanic candidate Scott Davis, a libertarian-conservative running in one ward away from Emanuel’s home, said on Facebook:

Unfortunately, when Police Districts 19 and 23 were merged, there was a noticeable decline in police presence in our neighborhood.

In October, Emauel responded to inquiries from city council members about the city’s rampant violence with laughter and sarcasm.

    After reading Larry Sinclair’s book “BARACK OBAMA & LARRY SINCLAIR, COCAINE, SEX, LIES & MURDER,
    my first inclinations, those about Obama’s phony background and pretenses, have been born out in spades. Sinclair’s sordid account of Obama’s psychedelic predilections and his suppositions on Rahm Emanuel’s sexual fantasies, is an eye opener. Big Brother politics in Chicago prevents honest law abiding citizen candidates from getting elected. For example, some of you may remember the 1986 Democratic primary? LaRouche Democrats, Janet Rose Mark Fairchild, won the 1986 Democratic Primary races for State Secretary and Lt. Governor, respectively (the Governor’s race is separate) But what followed was an all out media and political assault on both of them by Chip Humphrey and Democratic Party honchos. Humphrey won the primary for Governor but refused to run with Fairchild. So the idiot Humphrey switched to an Independent and lost the election!! Fairchild and Rose would have won their races but for the slander campaign by the Party and news media. I also ran for public office as a LaRouche, (i.e. FDR) Democrat. The Queens County Democratic Party treated my Board of Elections ballot certification with a federal court battle, a death threat, and a lame attempt to get me fired from my job at New York Air and a pictorial lying slander against me in the NY Daily News. My point is, how can crime be cleaned up when the real criminals are running our Cities? While at the same time non career, citizen-candidates are being slandered to the point that voters are intimidated from voting for them? Lyndon LaRouche was a pre-Presidential candidate in 1976, 1980, 1984, and 1988, all in the Democratic primary cycle. Each candidacy was met with dirty politics and one real attempt on his life in Detroit. Following the 1988 run he was railroaded into Federal prison by GHW Bush and company. His crime? He dared to “contribute to shaping US policy without permission.” He is the original author of what was later called, Strategic Defense Initiative or SDI. The NY Times called it “Star Wars” and attacked the concept of “rendering nuclear weapons obsolete.” Which the SDI would have accomplished had it not been killed in the cradle by George Bush and his pals in the Republican and Democratic Parties, with help from Soviet Premier Gorbachov. Consequently, decades old corruption and outright treason against our Republic, have turned our cities into shooting galleries, our factories into rubble, to bury any prospects of a future for our children and grandchildren. And UNLESS WE FORCE A CHANGE IN OURSELVES, TO CONFRONT OUR OWN DELINQUENCIES OF CHARACTER, we will never be able to correct the serious problems we face today. But if we do, we can prevent our cities from going further into Hell and get them into a real economic recovery. If each of us accepts the challenge to do what it takes, not alone, but in a political movement, we can win! I suggest anyone reading this to go to and find out what you can do to help. Victory against evil can win even when the cause appears to be lost. So join me in learning more about this by checking out the website of the LaRouche movement. I know you will be glad you did.
