For years now, Americans have been concerned about the possibility that they are living in a society undergoing rapid decay. We look around and find the values of our forefathers slipping away at an ever-quickening pace.
And, in some cases, this ceaseless slide toward anarchy provides us with horrid images to go along with it.
Hundreds of teenagers stormed the streets of downtown Chicago, smashing car windows, attacking bystanders and sending panicked tourists running from the sound of gunfire.
“Where are their parents at? That’s my question,” a woman who identified as a Chicago native told Fox 32 as the unruly scene played out in downtown Chicago on Saturday night.
That wasn’t all:
Large groups of teens were seen blasting music from Bluetooth speakers and roaming in front of traffic, with some attempting to gain access to the city’s Millennium Park, which is off-limits to those under 21 after certain hours, and the downtown Art Institute.
Some teens in the group began jumping up and down on cars, smashing windows and attacking people inside. One woman told Fox 32 her husband was attacked from the driver side of his vehicle and beaten after a group of teens jumped up and down on the couple’s windshield. The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Hundreds of police officers assisted by SWAT teams descended on downtown in an attempt to restore order as gunfire was reported multiple times amid the unfolding scene.
Twitter users were sharing some rather stunning footage.
Seems like the people of Chicago have gotten exactly what they voted for. Great to see it. Enjoy! https://t.co/B5lf5L0dwY

A group of black teens maul a white women in downtown Chicago. The next mayor of Chicago excuses this barbarism because we can’t “demonize youth who have been otherwise starved of opportunities.”pic.twitter.com/H4X4CfaZhg

Chicago has long been a lightning rod of controversy when it comes to violence, and it doesn’t appear as though the Democrat-run city will be shaking that horrid reputation any time soon.
