Chickens coming home to roost: Rahm Emanuel’s son robbed outside family home

The teenage son of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was attacked and robbed outside his family’s home on the city’s North Side late Friday, according to police.

Police told that Zach Emanuel, 17, was walking outside the house shortly after 10 p.m. local time when he was grabbed by two men. Authorities say the men went through Zach’s pockets and grabbed his cell phone before taking off. As of Saturday night, they were still at large.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the teenager suffered a chipped tooth and a fat lip when he was punched in the face during the attack. According to a police report seen by the paper, one of the attackers asked Emanuel “What else you got?” after taking the phone. The muggers then made him enter his security code to unlock the phone before fleeing.

Police said that no weapons were used in the attack. A photo taken by a newspaper photographer showed police officers gathered on the porch of the Emanuel home. On Saturday night, MyFoxChicago reported that an unmarked police car was parked in front of Emanuel’s house.

Gee, does Chicago have a crime problem? Better call Al Sharpton!

Guess the mayor’s office didn’t think Chicago’s daily killings was significant to require a crack down. Someone needs to inform the mayor of the crime situation in the city because it looks like he thinks crimes are primarily black on black so apparently he does not put any value on their lives either.
