Not too long after Mayor Rahm Emanuel boarded a Brown Line train at Montrose for his first 30-minute commute to City Hall, two thieves snatched an iPad from a rider and fled at the same Montrose stop.
Other passengers, the victim and police worked together to grab one of the bandits not too far away. That's great news.
And it's good for Rahm to be touting the benefits of convenient public transit.
We just all need to be more vigilant and help out when crime does occur on the CTA. I guess it also might be nice to have a security contingent with us on the CTA as Rahm does, but hey, we can't have everything.
