IL - Two Women struck with alum bat and robbed in Bucktown, Chicago
April 24, 2010
BY MARK J. KONKOL AND FRANK MAIN Staff Reporters
"They were two young women out on the town and celebrating success.
One was 24-year-old Stacy Jurich, a recent college grad who earned a glowing work review.
The other was Natasha McShane, 23, an exchange student from Ireland attending the University of Illinois at Chicago.
At about 3:30 a.m. this morning, they were walking to Jurich’s Bucktown home from a bar in Wicker Park when the night turned ugly.
A robber attacked them with an aluminum baseball bat near railroad tracks in the 1800 block of North Damen. After the attack, the man stole their purses and ran away. Both women were beaten unconscious and taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital, where they are in the intensive care unit."
This is front page news in Ireland and the UK:
And the Governor of Illinois is considering deploying the Illinois National Guard on the streets of Chicago to deal with the dozen or so shooting that happen each week in Chicago.

It really makes me mad (insert harsher word here LOL) when someone has to critically injure someone just to rob them. He/She/They could have robbed them without bashing them in the head with a baseball bat. Such senseless brutality. I hope the girls will recover. Head injuries are so very difficult.
