On the nite of Aug. 11th thousands of people ran wild through the streets of downtown Chicago looting and vandalizing the stores along State St. and the “Magnificent Mile”. 100 looters were arrested, there were 2 shootings and 13 cops went to the hospital. The city of Chicago raised it’s drawbridges over the Chicago River to prevent any other looters from flooding into the downtown for a full week. The next day Thomas “Tut” Hunt and the Chicago GA were patrolling downtown and on the CTA. For many of the stores it was the second time that they were looted in the last 2 months. They are closing for good.
While the politicians and police point fingers at one another engaged in the blame game the Chicago Guardians continue to patrol and remind the Chicago citizens that it’s time to Improve Not Move. The Chicago Guardian Angels say ” Fear Not”.
