Two thugs have been arrested after they robbed, beat, and threatened to kidnap an undercover Chicago police officer during a drug sting operation.
The undercover cop tried to buy $10 worth of drugs from the two suspects.
Both of the accused men, Jamil Campbell and Maurice Bishop, have multiple felony convictions.
According to CWBChicago: “Campbell, 37, allegedly pulled the officer’s pants down, lifted his shirt, and rifled through his wallet.
“Prosecutors said he grabbed the cop by the collar and dragged him into the street while telling the man who had taken the officer’s $10 to keep the money and leave.”
According to prosecutors, Campbell pulled the officer into the traffic lanes of a nearby street and yelled, “Kidnap him! Come on! Get in this van.”
Bishop, 33, allegedly grabbed the cop by the neck and chest so he couldn’t leave and pushed the officer toward the van.
“Prosecutors said the cop managed to free himself, and backup units moved in to arrest Campbell and Bishop,” CWB reported.
The news comes as violence continues to run out of control in Chicago under Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
One of the most important corporations in Chicago tried to sound the alarm about crime but Lightfoot chose to respond by firing back with insults.
Slay News reported that McDonald’s Chief Executive Officer Chris Kempczinski warned Lightfoot that rising crime was a problem.
He told Lightfoot he can’t get executives to move to the city because of the rising crime.
“Everywhere I go, I’m confronted by the same question: ‘What’s going on in Chicago?’” Kempczinski said.
“There is a general sense out there that our city is in crisis.
“The truth is, it’s more difficult today for me to convince a McDonald’s executive to relocate to Chicago from one of our other offices than it was just a few years ago.
“It’s more difficult for me to recruit a new employee to McDonald’s to join us in Chicago than it was in the past.”
“We see every single day in our restaurants what’s happening at society at large.
“It’s not going to be something that McDonald’s can solve on its own.
“We need to be able to do it with the public sector as well.”
“That’s one of the things about McDonald’s.
“Whatever’s happening in society, good or bad, you can be sure it’s happening at McDonald’s.”
He said he is not moving the headquarters, yet, but implored Lightfoot to make a plan and execute it, “Let us know the plan so we can support it.
“It’s going to take partnership.”
When asked to respond to Kempczinski, Lightfoot said:
“What would have been helpful is for the McDonald’s CEO to educate himself before he spoke.”
