Well, if the point that Aaron Goldstein is trying to make that Chicago has a crime problem, then he succeeded.

Oh, Goldstein lives in Albany Park, so he should know the turf.

Goldstein is a former public defender, so of course society is to blame, but not of course leftist law enforcement policies.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Illinois Attorney General candidate Aaron Goldstein and a camera crew were robbed at gunpoint Thursday afternoon while filming in the Northwest Side Albany Park neighborhood.

The robbery happened at 3:24 p.m. in the 4600 block of North Albany, according to Chicago Police. A group of suspects approached Goldstein and four of his staff members, displayed a weapon and demanded their property.

“All my staff acted calmly and courageously and did the right thing by handing over their property to the robbers,” Goldstein said in a statement Friday. “Most importantly, none of us was harmed.”

Goldstein said they were filming for his campaign when the three young men approached from behind and one of them pressed a gun to his side, Goldstein said in his statement. The robbers made off with the crew’s phones, camera equipment and other property.
