The Chicago Sun-Times:

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s 17-year-old son robbed near North Side home

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s 17-year-old son was robbed Friday night across the street from his family’s North Side home, leaving him with a chipped tooth and fat lip, a source told the Sun-Times’ Michael Sneed.

Zach Emanuel went outside to take a walk around 10 p.m. Friday and was jumped in the 4200 block of North Hermitage Avenue in Ravenswood, according to the source.

A mayoral spokeswoman confirmed Saturday that his son was hurt after he was attacked.

“Yesterday evening, Mayor Emanuel’s son Zach was assaulted in a robbery during which his phone was stolen,” Kelley Quinn said.  “He sustained injuries that required medical treatment but was able to join the family for a long planned trip. The mayor’s focus is on his son’s well-being.”

Two people approached the teenager from behind as he was walking and talking on his cell phone, according to a police report that said one of them “placed his arm around the victim’s neck in a bear chokehold.” Then, the other attacker punched Zach Emanuel in the face, knocking him to the ground, the report said.

Accoridng to the police, the teenager dropped his phone, and his attackers took it, then patted him down and asked, “What else you got?”

Then, they forced him “to enter his security code to unlock the phone” and ran off.

Zach Emanuel was left with a chipped tooth and a fat lip, the source said.

According to the police report, he was treated by his “personal physician for a laceration and blunt-force trauma to the mouth/face.”

No weapon was involved, the source said.

My sympathies to Zach. That must have been traumatic.  I am glad he wasn’t seriously injured.

It is kind of amusing though.  If he had been mugged in a different part of town that would be one thing, but getting robbed and beaten across the street from the mayor’s home indicates the crime problem in Chicago is a long way from under control.

But wait!  There’s more!

According to a Chicago Police Department Crime Summary Map seen by MyFoxChicago, there have been 17 robberies in the same police district as Emanuel’s home between Nov. 20 and Dec. 13.

I know shit about that city but if he/she didn’t live in an official mansion I would think that the Mayor of Chicago would live in one of the best neighborhoods in town.  I would also expect his home to get 24/7 police protection as a routine matter.

So who were these brazen crooks?  The Sun-Times article doesn’t give any identifying information and the Fox article only says they were two men.  Was there a description?  I’m sure Zach caught a glimpse of at least one of them.  Maybe releasing a few details about the muggers would help catch them.

    Aren’t cell phones easy to track now ? Does he usually take walks at 10pm, even in a nice Chicago neighborhood ? Sorry, the mom of a teen boy, always the mom of a teen boy comes out on this one. I’m thinking drug deal gone wrong, or he traded the phone for some. He was talking on his cell phone, why did he have to punch in his security code if he was already ON his phone? So these thugs are just going to use his phone account now ?

    New York gets bad press but most people are high functioning go getters I can be the same guy who knocks you to the curb if you are in my way but who will buy you dinner more often than not I am in a hurry ten minute thank you is way too much time. I bought you a sandwich I do not need to be canonized. Get out of my way. People call it rude but I think New Yorkers are the kindest everything has to be kept at a clip ask me how to get To Carnegie Hall and I promise I will never say practice practice practice. So many myths about NYC. I lived on Great Jones and the Bowery. My rent was huge. The Bowery is not littered with hapless alcoholics it is 1800 for a studio. Maggie Girl of the streets is one of my favorite books.if it is possible to like a story about an abused woman. Upton Sinclair was very loose with the facts. The Jungle is a great book but he took incredible license. His books for me are like watching MSNBC they create a narrative and stick with it the truth be damned. Make it up. Lies become fact and if you challenge the lies you are a racist
    I love The Bluest Eye and Beloved by Toni Morrisson. Beloved is a scary ghost story. It is awful Sethe cuts her own daughters throat. Hard read. It is Jane Eyre in some ways because it gives a voice robustness unheard. I have argued with Nobel winning laureate. No big deal I fight with my pup all the time.I think pigeons are gross. Shayla wants to take them all home and feed them. I think the Bluest Eye is sublime. Kid thinks it is self indulgent ironic because I have big blue eyes mutt has brown. I always call her blue eyes. She calls me an ass. The way we roll but the book is brutal. Little child wanting a blue eyed doll hates herself for not being pretty then endures molestation. Hard to read but news flash most men are not vile child raping pigs. The saga falls apart on so many levels but we live in this world where straight white men are monsters. Enough. I treasure my dad and all of my obnoxious brothers.. indicting all men because you are a bitter slob is not fair.
    Okay despise Lena Dunham. I think she is gross. Calling her a bitter slob was not cool. I so love my brothers that I will refrain from saying anything about bargain basement shit clothes trying to be cut. Looks like the drunkest person on Rodman Street in the eighties Go away stumble down SOuth Street until you find someone else that is as big a mess. I adore my baby girl my mom is hero my tramp grandmother was a rock star. Lena Dunham makes me wretch. If she is what feminism is keep it I would never let my baby behave like that thing. Of course I am sexist because I said would never let her. Sod off. I will correct my baby if I think she is going off course. My kid she is my best friend not a social experiment. Why would anyone want to raise a girl to hate men? So stupid. Tea keno do is about my little thing owning herself. My sister her grandmother lived that life. I sat on the Staten Island ferry and saw her bruises. Nothing could be done I flew in from New York my brothers drove all night. He beat her all the time but there was nothing we could do she would leave him and then go back. I do not get it she has four brothers and none of us are abusive. Do confess I might like to hit Rosie O’Donnell
    Since I am irish I think it is okay.Wish I could fix my sister but sadly you learn the hard way. I will never grasp why she is a fool for assholes but I will fightvtobthe death for urgent. She is my sister’s grand daughter. Eight years old and not once has she called her. She called her a spoiled brat. Said she needed to learn her place. My head popped off. I exploded. Think again if you are going to tell my little girl to learn her place. Fuck off. I say baby girl baby baby football day long. I am now offensive woman hating sexist pig.. My bad I thought caring for a small girl meant something. Choose your battles info care about my brat and I know sometimes life is unfair I cannot get pregnant. Medical impossibility but let’s say I was part of some super secret twisted Russian experiment to make men have babies I would abort Lena Dunham and enjoy it
