Wicker Park Stroller Gang
Posted on November 13, 2014
There’s a lot of stupidity that takes place on a daily basis within the cozy confines of Chicago’s city limits. However, for whatever reason, this “Stroller Gang” story made the rounds as if it was the “Crime of the Century” (in HD):
“Surveillance video captured a group of “brazen” thieves stealing tip jar money and a $700 bike from a Wicker Park pizzeria over the weekend.
The footage shows a group of three young men and two young women with a baby in a stroller entering the pizzeria at 1252 N. Damen Ave. just before noon Saturday.
After ordering one slice of pizza, one woman grabs $10 out of the tip jar when the cashier’s back is turned.”
Who the hell cares? This shit happens all day, every day, all over the city. But wait… it gets even stupider:
“After leaving the restaurant, a young boy scaled a 10-foot high, locked fence to nab cook Aaron Johnson’s $700 bicycle from an area next to the building.”
And to bring it all home:
“This is my sixth bike that’s been stolen in the city,” he said.
Good lord. Buy a fucking lock. This isn’t news, it’s downright idiocy by all parties involved.
