Minority Flash Mob Attacks Man in Chicago’s Boystown – Beat & Stab Him – Media Silent (Video)

A minority mob targeted and attacked another man in Boystown… Where’s the uproar?
The mob assault and stabbing was caught on tape.

The victim suffered a punctured lung and stab wounds to his chest. He is a beautician with hopes of becoming a doctor.

A flash mob of black youths from outside the area targeted and attacked a man in the Boys Town neighborhood in Chicago this past weekend. The mob beat, kicked and stabbed the man. The media is totally covering up this hate crime.
ABC Local reported:

Residents of Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood are concerned after a 25-year-old man was stabbed during a fight on the street.

The victim is hospitalized in good condition. Police are now searching for the offenders.

The attack, which was caught on video, happened before midnight Sunday in the 3300-block of North Halsted. Nearly a dozen people are seen shoving, punching and kicking in the video. The target of their rage appears to be one man who quickly hits the ground as the beating continues.

“Someone spilled a drink on a passerby and he turned around to confront him. There were words exchanged and before you knew it there was a pile on the sidewalk,” said John Cunningham, witness.

Cunningham and his partner, Rob Sall, witnessed and recorded the fight that quickly spilled onto Halsted. They also called 911.

Witnesses say the victim was stabbed as the mob moved behind a tree. He slammed into a storefront, then quickly got back on his feet beaten and bloodied.

“The fight moved into the street. The next thing you know we see a guy thrown against a wall with multiple lacerations on his chest. At this point traffic had stopped on the street. I was the one who made the initial 911 call,” said Tony Parzgnat, witness.

It was an obvious mob mentality. You saw people cheering it on. People running in to give one quick jab or kick and the then back out and cheering them on. It’s scary,” Sall said.

“It was kind of shocking to have it happen in our neighborhood, but to actually witness it was pretty amazing,” said Cunningham.

Though unrelated, residents say this is the third stabbing in the area in recent weeks. The last one happened five days ago, just one block north, when a man was robbed in a 7-Eleven parking lot at Halsted and Roscoe.

Residents say the problems are due to large groups of people from outside the neighborhood loitering in the area. Alderman Tom Tunney, 44th Ward, said Monday night that this is a subject that has been coming up for the last couple of years.

“There tends to be large groups of minority youths on Halsted. Whether they are patronizing the businesses or not, it’s an area where they feel safe. It’s a balancing act that we’re tying to make it safe for everyone,” Tunney said.

But residents say that as of late, they don’t feel safe, even while they praise the work the Chicago Police Department’s 23rd District does there.

    “Large groups of minority youth on Halstead…” from out of the area. Are they speaking of the gay minorities or the black minorities?

    Thought it was a nice touch to place a shot of the gay pride flag in the story.

    And yet, Chicagoans continue to elect the political hacks which have denied the people their unalienable right to life by stripping them of any means of effective self-defense when faced with such lethal threats. On July 4th, some readers of this website openly and viciously attacked Jim for exercising his 2nd Amendment rights. They launched a multitude of anti-gun owner invectives at him. Just like the political hacks of Chicago, those readers ridiculed Jim and gun-owners, in general, for assuming the adult responsibility to protect oneself and family, and yet, if they found themselves in the same situation captured on this video, they’d be begging for someone armed like Jim to intervene and rescue their sorry lives. It’s more than a little ironic and absurdly hypocritical how, when faced with lethal threats, the first thing gun-grabbers do is call people with guns (the police). You gun-grabbers have ZERO credibility and it’s no surprise that anti-gun, anti-self defense groups, such as the Brady Bunch, are withering on the vine.

    First, remember that our president said that his supporters should “get in their face.” These mobs are just doing what they are being told by their leader, something I’m sure they will say almost any minute now to excuse their behavior.
    Second, can’t we drop this hate-crime terminology that seems to enter every conversation and post? If someone stabs another, believe me, they don’t do it out of love. If they punch and kick someone because a mob is cheering them on it’s just not another form of a group hug. We only put this terminology out there to placate one special interest group or another. As a result, I wouldn’t be surprised if some blacks (or whites or Hispanics) excuse their behavior because it is not focused on another group of people but on their own racial or ethnic class and therefore can’t really be a crime! How about we get back to basics and have one crime for all people no matter what their skin color or ethnic background? But doing that might not be divisive enough to give the politicians the votes they need in the coming election cycle and we must remember it is, after all, all about them!

    I am not pro gay by along shot, but no matter who you are if theres an unprovoked attack!!!! Defend yourselves!!! 40cal.Glock 15 round clip, 10-15 dead. Self defence is your God given right!!!! Law enforcement can’t and the present government won’t!!!

  • RedBeard

    Attacks on gays are Serious Things, because the victim is a member of a PC-recognized Special Protected Class, The politicians and media will be all over this, pointing fingers, starting commissions, etc. Err… well, except when the attackers are all of another Special Protected Class. Never mind. Nothing to see here. Return to your homes.

    What ever happened to equality under the law? A mob beating of a defenseless man is what it is, and the handling of the aftermath should never differ because of the race, creed, or personal lifestyle of either attackers or victim.

    Society is swirling in the bowl, thanks to the dastardly agenda of political correctness.

    I do have two points, regarding this article.
    The first is: If I beg loudly, will you provide a means to e-mail stories, **OUTSIDE**of
    Facebook and/or other “socialmedia”.The second is: Does anyone in any position of law enforcement authority have enough grey cells to link the common denominators of these “flash mobs” other than possession of mobile telephone or other communication devices?
    Some alleged peace officer (chuckling to myself) should have by now, found that age, height/weight, ethnic origin, race, geographic locale and other factors, as a means of begining to combat this phenom.
    Baring actual law enforcement and intelligent gathering of actionable facts, one is led to believe that municipal and state political echelons and the Polititurds that occupy those positions are engaged in kicking a rather nasty and violent can down the one way street, whose signage clearly reads “PC Road”.
    Hint. It ain’t going to get any better by ignoring the problem or making believe it is the fault of those tax hike refusnik conservatives doing away with funding of George H.W.Bush’s Midnite Basketball leagues.
    A Boy’s Band is NOT going to fix this problem in America’s River City.

    SILENCE. State-run media SILENCE. They call themselves PROFESSIONALS. They have legal rights that we do not enjoy. Rather like hate crime legislation, they give themselves special rights and power. They are the SILENT enemy. They are the Democrat/Commie/anti-American Party. Our elected Repubs either help them or maintain their SILENCE.

  • kato

    I wonder who will be the first white liberal to suggest we shovel more taxpayer money to black parasites.

    I see blacks driving around in Escalades and Mercedes Benzes. One look at them and one can see that they did not earn the money, at least not legally, to buy such a car. Some of these acorns couldn’t even land a job at McDonalds, but they probably land ten different types of government handout because of the color of their skin.

    I follow MLK’s dictum and judge this garbage by the content of its character.

  • Spartan

    Kevin DuJan over at Hillbuzz.org has been talking about this for two years now. He lives there and sees what’s been happening since the emaculation. He may have a follow up to this after he gets ahold of the story?

  • Smarty

    Maybe if the media (including Fox) would stop with the natalle holloway and casey anthony soap operas and focus on investigative reporting on these flash mobs they would be doing some good.

    But blacks rioting in the streets is a non-story? Maybe if we give them more affirmative action and pigford money they will be nicer…

    Time for Chicago to Ban, Knives & Walking.

    Since using the Fire-Arms ban logic…the walking and/or the knives existing caused all this.. Not a bunch of anti-social idiots.

  • pst314

    From a Chicago Tribune article on the attack:

    “Some residents say such crowds have led to a jump in crime and made them afraid to walk the streets at night. Others denounce such concerns and say it’s a case of white residents being intolerant of young black people who visit the neighborhood from other parts of the city.”

    Who are these “others” who say that it’s racist to fear violent thugs?

    And if someone tried to sue the city/state for not allowing people to be armed in public for self defense, the courts would probably say they have no standing.

    #36 “Memo to Boystown residents: Arm yourselves.”

    Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit famously said “I’d be delighted to live in a country where happily married gay couples had closets full of assault weapons.”

    But of course Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, Police Chief Garry McCarthy, and Father Pfleger disagree. It’s racist and fascist to want to be able to defend yourself.

  • ahem

    As Joel above suggested, read the blog “Second City Cop”. The Chicago police are beside themselves with the political correctness and the inability of Chicagoans to arm themselves. The cops are on the side of the angels with this one. It’s a story that Emmanuel can’t contain for much longer.

    Sarah………………please come scream about these ugly thugs. Scream it, screech it, write it on your hand. Whisper about the thugs. I can hear you over the SILENCE.

  • In a Chgo Tribune article, Modesto Valle, director of the “youth center” on Halsted, which is the main hangout for these “youths”:

    “People are judging the book by the cover, when in reality many of these young people mean no harm,” Valle said. “If we could all come to the table and respect one another and hear solutions, I think we can get there. It’s a very complicated situation and it’s going to take all voices being heard.”

    In other words, don’t believe what you see. Let’s have a “sensitivity training” session.

    Heap-of-sand commented: How is the “media silent” when the post links to an ABC news site?

    Heap – the ONLY thing the media was silent about was the that the victim was BLACK. So, one MUST include Jim Hoft as part of the media. Hoft’s headline has NOTHING to do with what the media actually said and did not say.

    Hoft has made himself look silly with his headline, which, as you say Heap, he IMMEDIATELY contradicts.


    Shocking! NOT! Yawn….. another black hate mob, what else is new.

    Don’t you love how the first amendment is almost gone, NO hate speech, cant say god in schools or funerals.

    The second amendment is almost gone, all guns must be registered when purchased new or from pawn shops etc…, can’t bear arms unless the state allows you to pay for a permit.

    Fourth amendment almost gone. Illegal search and seizure happening daily TSA screening, phone tapping, house raids.

    Don’t know if any of you caught the special about the revolution that was on the other day, but other than housing troops in our homes. This government is about 10 times worse than the British ever were. Unfortuneately the masses are way too comfortable and distracted to do anything about it. I predict we will have to be in a long deep depression, before enough people wake up to change things, and by then we will be in the middle of the fourth reich!

    “Rahm’s Chicago. Hope & change!”

    Sorry but blaming it on Rahm or any other one person would give a pass to the real culprits. These scenes aren’t unique to Chicago they’re happening in and around every major urban center in the US from New York to LA. This is the bitter fruit of decades of social engineering by the kook left progressives and urbanists.

    And it’s only going to get worse before the general population rises up and puts a stop to it.

These yuts are part of a community organizing civilian yut corp and are practicing drills on intimidation, assault and battery, robbery, property damage and civil disorder.

If you’re not impressed now, wait till Barry hands requisitions the Project Gunwalker surplus for these yuts. Sarcasm intended.
