CHICAGO (CBS) â€” While he is pleased with the quick arrest of suspects in a series of mob attacks over the weekend, Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday made no secret that he wants everybody involved â€œbrought to justice.â€
â€œI want all the young men that were involved in this,â€ Emanuel said. â€œBecause I want to be very clear up front that as it relates to this crime, the full force of the law enforcement community and justice system will deal with it.â€
Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said yesterday that about 20 arrests were made in connection with the attacks, and five people were charged.
Emanuel said he spoke with McCarthy over the weekend and again this morning about the situation. The mayor said the cityâ€™s reputation as a safe place to work and shop downtown is being endangered by the thuggery. Many of the attacks are happening near the biggest tourist and shopping attractions in the city.
But, CBS 2â€²s Jim Williams reports, the problem of mob attacks downtown is much bigger than the weekend beatings, according to beat cops who wanted to remain anonymous.
