River North was an up and coming section of Chicago when I lived there. Attack on River North McDonald’s security guard caught on video.
According the Wiki it contains the largest concentration of art galleries outside of Manhattan. What I remember are the Blues Clubs, the restaurants and the nightclubs.
This incident comes amid a backdrop of several incidents in the River North neighborhood over the weekend where 21 people in different groups were arrested for causing disturbances.
Law and Order seems to have taken a holiday in the City of Chicago. Given that the State’s Attorney won’t lock up most people arrested by the Chicago PD, you can see how that could be.
