How embarrassing!  A man was robbed just before 6am today around the corner, literally, from Chicago Mayor Rahm’s fancy digs in Chicago’s North Side.

Chicago isn’t safe, folks.  Unlike Rahm, you don’t have 24/7 armed bodyguards.


Chicago (Tribune) – Police are investigating an early morning robbery around the corner from Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s North Side home.

A man was walking down the street around 5:45 a.m. when a white van pulled up, stopped and the driver got out, Town Hall Police Sgt. Dennis Connelly said.

“What are you doing around here?’’ the driver asked, according to Connelly.

The 29-year-old man replied, “I can’t hear you, I’m deaf,’’ the sergeant said.

The robber then reached into his back pocket, implying he had a weapon, and demanded the victim’s backpack. The man threw it to the ground and the robber grabbed it and sped off, Connelly said.

The man flagged down a Chicago police officer stationed in a squad car that was parked across the street from the mayor’s home, Connelly said.
