WATCH: Hundreds of teenagers swarm streets of Chicago neighborhood and vandalize cars while terrorizing businesses and residents

On Monday evening, Chicago was rocked by a massive and chaotic event that left properties damaged and businesses closed.

Hundreds of teenagers swarmed the Lakeview neighborhood, terrorizing residents and businesses. The takeover started when the teenagers poured out of the Belmont Red Line stop on the Chicago “L” train at about 10 p.m., jumping on cars, breaking glass, throwing things, and even dancing on top of cars while drinking in the streets.

Witnesses reported hearing gunshots during the night as well.

“It has been very chaotic and as somebody who’s lived in Lakeview for honestly the past three years, it’s very scary to see how things have changed over time,” said Rohen.

Residents were understandably frightened by this scene, with one witness claiming they called police but were told there was nothing they could do due to being overwhelmed with calls.

One restaurant owner had to close up shop immediately after seeing what was happening outside their business, while other witnesses noticed vandalism to their cars including broken windows and large dents.

Law enforcement officials scrambled to respond to this event; however only two people were arrested: one 15-year-old girl who was charged with obstructing traffic and aggravated assault of a first responder.


In light of this incident, 44th Ward Alderman Bennett Lawson has stated he will be meeting with 19th district police officers as well as CTA representatives in order to discuss what took place.

“I will be meeting with the 19th district police, CTA, and others to discuss what took place and identify ways we can prevent it from occurring moving forward,” said 44th Ward Alderman Bennett Lawson. “As well as continue conversations with my colleagues on city council about how we can keep our youth from participating in these disruptive actions ”

Cities across America are experiencing similar chaos in their neighborhoods, and only time will tell if officials will actually stand up and do something about it.

    Typical Chicago leftist just being themselves with no accountability at all….move along and get your totaled car off the street.

    Oh, and did I mention that the thugs were black cowards?

      So where are all of the men? Do you all not own base ball bats? You are allowed to protect your property. Go do it. Quit belly aching and take care of business.

    Bad parenting. Sense of entitlement. They feel they can do anything they want with impunity! Law enforcement needs to come down hard on these thugs!

    Armed citizens should gun them down. Thats how we handled it in Montana in the 70’s and we had no crime.

    Why have cities done away with water canons? The streets probably need a thorough wash, anyway!

    Reparations …Now! One way tickets to Africa!

    Had this been in MY Neighborhood, the outcome would have been very different, When it comes to protecting our families, friends, and property, here in Tennessee, we the ADULT RESIDENTS and HOMEOWNERS are DEADLY SERIOUS about security, and make no bones about it, we will SHOOT AND KILL ANYONE THAT WE DEEM A THREAT TO ANY OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED RESPONSIBILITIES !!!! Don’t believe us, Make us PROVE IT, PLEASE !!!!!!

    That Should be Classified as a Terrorist WAR Act. Then SHOOT All of the Participants. The U.S. Needs to TAKE Back This Country! If Not SHOT, Then Arrest/Incararate Them All With Locating Chips. Antaractia/Amazon River Basin is OPEN – Reclassifying Retraining. DONT LIKE AMERICA/AMERICANs Leave. If Any on Government Assistance IMMEDIATELY AND Permnantly Life Long TERMINATION & DEPORTED.. NO CIVILIZATION. or Act like Animals, Put to sleep like Animals.. They Made the Choice.

    What the was the majority race of the rioters? Whites, Blacks, Hispanics?

    I did not submit my comment twice. As usual, the internet just didn’t want to post it. Why?? there was nothing derogatory about my post. I just asked the % of races that rioted.

    Maybe a few bullets and about fifty dead teenagers would stop this criminal act. Desperate actions call for desperate measures. They won’t listen to reason, and this behavior needs strict responses.

  13. Bob July 1, 2023 at 9:27 am

    The only way to deal with crime is come down hard on the criminals. That is not being done nationwide. The perpetrators only fear a long jail sentence or a severe beating. Right now they are laughing in the face of the police and citizens.

  14. Dewey July 1, 2023 at 9:30 am

    Arrest them and make them pay for damages! What’s wrong with you people! Making them take money out of there own pockets is only way to handle this crap!

  15. Law abiding July 1, 2023 at 10:02 am

    Citizens get what they vote for!
    Neener neener neener!

    Get a big net and capture them all. This has gotten out of hand and it’s not just Chicago. We spend thousands in taxes and yet our property gets damaged, destroyed and if these thugs get arrested the judicial system just lets them go while we lose money in business and future business for fear of the same happening again. We also get stuck with the cost of repairs as they just swarm to another area to continue their migration of destruction. Enough is enough.

  17. Al Meyer July 1, 2023 at 10:10 am

    What do you expect from a city that hold no one accountable for their crimes. They boast about being the murder capital of the U.S. Has anyone noticed that this criminal explosion started after Chicago’s own Obama became president and advocated being anti-police and anti-law and order? Chicago deserves what they are getting, they vote for garbage and wonder why nothing changes. Garbage in garbage out!

    Nothing but a bunch of Brain Dead PORCH MONKEYS MORONS POS like all LIBRATURDS

  19. Hcatguy July 1, 2023 at 10:46 am

    The reason they do this is because there is no penalty. Make sure to keep defunding police, and keep voting in Soros appointed prosecutors that will help. NOT!!

  20. Joseph Edelen July 1, 2023 at 11:07 am

    The moment a protest turns violent they are violating the rights of others so open deadly fire. Bet this behavior stops. Late 60’s Newark New Jersey saw open rioting and looting. It all stopped immediately when the governor called up the national guard and ordered the guard to shoot looters.

    I promise you, and mark the day I posted this, none of this will EVER stop till we either have a revolution or a massive civil war II! The majority, note Majority of us real loving Americans who own enough guns and ammo the world over, wipe the leftist liberal DemoRat vermin filth out the USA forever! And make sure this NEVER happens again! NEVER allow liberalism and it’s radical agendas to ever take hold again in this country! Make English Official language! Lock tight our borders, otherwise why even have states, if you have no country with no borders! Make Christianity main taught center of religion!

  22. JerryDV July 2, 2023 at 7:24 am

    Did anyone else believe that defunded the police would result in no or slow police response time? Did those who voted for defund the police, Soros supported DAs, and their mayor, believe that things would get better? A city of sheep, voting the same way over and over again and expecting a different outcome.
