Man charged in beating on CTA train
Chicago (Tribune) – A South Side man exhausted from beating and stomping another man on a CTA Red Line train over the weekend “took a break” while the victim lay unconscious on the floor, then resumed the attack once he’d caught his breath, prosecutors said today in bond court.
Anthony McMillan, 49, was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in the Friday night beating that prosecutors said occurred over the course of 15 minutes on a northbound Red Line train from 95th Street to 63rd Street.
McMillan attacked the 51-year-old victim, body slammed him to the floor and then stomped, choked and beat the man until he lost consciousness, Assistant State’s Attorney Stephanie Buck said. Video surveillance from the train captured McMillian continuing to kick the man in the head as he lay motionless, she said.
After several minutes, McMillan grew tired and “took a break” from the beating, Buck said.
… The victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where he remained in critical condition today with a collapsed lung, swelling to his brain and multiple facial fractures, she said.

Maybe you can take public transportation and see life as it really is in Chicago on your trip, right?
Chicago isn’t safe.
Chicago’s strict gun control only makes crime worse.
