BLM Riots, Loots In Chicago After Police Shoot Criminal Who Shot At Them

Just like every weekend, Chicago was a hotbed of violence. 37 shot, 3 killed. The vast majority, if not all, were black. There haven’t been any riots of blacks shooting blacks. Yet

Chicago rocked by widespread looting caught on video after police-involved shooting

Widespread looting and police clashes in downtown Chicago were caught on video early Monday, in response to a police-involved shooting Sunday that wounded a suspect in his late teens or early 20s.

Fox 32 Chicago reported that the shooting occurred Sunday afternoon in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. A crowd emerged that faced off against the police and eventually began hauling things at the officers. Police told the Chicago Tribune that someone spread the unfounded rumor that it was a child who was hit.

A police officer told the station that an officer sustained a shoulder injury in the confrontation and one of the police cars had its windows broken. The tension carried on into the night.

Police initially responded to a report of a man with a gun and chased the suspect. Police said the suspect turned and fired at the pursuing officers who returned fire. The suspect’s condition was unknown. The Chicago Tribune reported that a weapon was found at the scene.

The police were responding to a call that the suspect had a firearm, which, of course, the man’s brother says is totally false, because his brother is an angel, despite having been charged with domestic battery (charges dropped) and currently under investigation for reckless conduct and child endangerment. Anyhow, what happened?

The situation seemed to continue to intensify and reportedly led to widespread riots across the city, including the Magnificent Mile.

Andy Ngo, the conservative journalist, took to Twitter to say “BLM-inspired rioting and looting is happening in Chicago tonight.” He wrote that police “look completely overwhelmed.”

Ryan Baker, an anchor for CBS Chicago, also tweeted, “Absolute chaos in downtown Chicago with more overnight looting and vandalism in the Loop. Appears to be coordinated effort with minimal police presence.”

Social media users posted videos of hundreds of people looting a Nordstrom, Walgreens, Macy’s, Coach, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. The Chicago Police Department did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News.

It’s amazing how few media outlets have stories on this. CNN has nothing, but, they do note Chicago’s mayor putting up fencing because people were at the beach. CBS News calls it “unrest“. I’m sure the NY Times considers it local news, but they do cover the Sturgis biker rally. Nor anything from the Washington Post, but, they do talk about parties in Saint-Tropez.

What does this have to do with BLM?
