I’m not supposed to call certain places a sh*thole. But let’s just say it’s not shocking that Chicago has a murder problem. I mean, the problem itself is shocking (see Chicago FINALLY Admits it Has A Murder Problem, And They’re… Not Blaming Guns?! and Chicago Gun Control? Murder From ILLEGAL Guns on Staggering Rise…). It’s just well reported. Crime seems to be up there with overrated pizza. How much so? An Illinois AG candidate was robbed at gunpoint. In Chicago.
Yes, AG as in Attorney General. The guy running to be top cop.
It was even at a campaign stop.
The Chicago Tribune reported that Aaron Goldstein, 42, and members of his campaign team were approached by three men in their early 20s. One of the men had a handgun and demanded Goldstein and the campaign aides turn over the camera equipment and other personal belongings, including their cell phones, which they did.
According to the Tribune, law enforcement sources confirmed that they had no one in custody and did not release a description of the suspects.
Goldstein’s campaign manager Robert Murphy, who was not with the candidate at the time, explained that he was taking promotional campaign photos with an “in-the-neighborhood kind of” message, according to the Tribune. The incident took place in Albany Park.
Don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing funny about anyone getting robbed at gun point. But a “bold progressive” running to be top cop in Illinois? Being robbed at gun point? In gun-controlled Chicago? That’s almost a Dave Chappelle sketch.
There seems to be a pattern at play when it comes to gun control. It involves it not working (see Liberal Policy Failure: Mass Shooting in Canada Despite Strict Gun Control Laws and WOW: New Report Reveals Just How Badly Australia’s Gun Ban Failed…).
