Report: Chicago Looters Used U-Haul To Ransack Stores

Riots erupted in Chicago overnight, looters were seemingly ready to strike. In a coordinated response to a police shooting scores of stores were plundered in the city overnight, leaving widespread destruction and injuring about a dozen officers, Police Supt. David Brown said.

“This was not an organized protest,” Chicago police Superintendent David Brown said. “Rather, this was an incident of pure criminality. This was an act of violence against our police officers and against our city.”

“Hundreds of people swept through the Magnificent Mile and other parts of downtown Chicago early Monday, smashing windows, looting stores, confronting police and at one point exchanging gunfire with officers,” The Chicago Tribune reported.

“The looting began shortly after midnight as people darted through broken store windows and doors along Michigan Avenue carrying shopping bags full of merchandise. Cars dropped off more people as the crowd grew. At least one U-Haul van was seen pulling up,” The Tribune wrote.

A U-Haul.

Meanwhile, CBS-Chicago reported that the mayhem was “coordinated.”

“In what appears to be a widespread, coordinated attack, dozens of stores, banks, and other businesses were broken into downtown Chicago overnight. The looting spread from the Loop, up to the Near North Side,” the station reported.

The Black Lives Matter movement released a statement suggesting Lightfoot should not be surprised by the Magnificent Mile being targeted, given Chicago politicians have long valued protecting the high-rent area while poorer neighborhoods have suffered from disinvestment and neglect.

“Over the past few months, too many people — disproportionately Black and Brown — have lost their jobs, lost their income, lost their homes, and lost their lives as the city has done nothing and the Chicago elite have profited,” the organization’s statement read. “When protesters attack high-end retail stores that are owned by the wealthy and service the wealthy, that is not ‘our’ city and has never been meant for us.”

Chicago has the most corrupt politicians in the country!
