WATCH: CHICAGO COPS RAID WRONG HOME, HUMILIATE NAKED WOMAN, ATTEMPT TO KEEP VIDEO SECRET

SOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) -

Chicago, IL — Over the past few years, the residents of Chicago have been subjected to a militarized police state occupation. Innocent family after innocent family each waking up in the middle of the night as heavily armed storm troopers throw flash bangs into their homes, haul them outside in the cold, point guns at their heads, and even handcuff small children. These families are being terrorized in their own homes, many of them left with PTSD, and no one is being held accountable—because the state is the one behind the terror. As the following case illustrates, when these terrorizing cops are caught, they go to great lengths to hide their crimes.

Last year, Anjanette Young had just gotten home from her job as a licensed social worker at the hospital and was getting undressed in her bedroom when she heard a loud pounding. The pounding was from the heavily armed Chicago cops outside her door, smashing it in with a battering ram.

“It was so traumatic to hear the thing that was hitting the door,” Young told CBS 2, who has been covering Chicago PD’s raids on wrong homes for several years now. “And it happened so fast, I didn’t have time to put on clothes.”

Once the taxpayer funded terrorists broke down the door, they rushed into Young’s bedroom, yelling, “Police search warrant,” and “Hands up, hands up, hands up.”

Naked and terrified, Young complied with the orders as the heavily armed men humiliated her in her home, refusing to allow her to get dressed before they handcuffed her.

“There were big guns,” Young said. “Guns with lights and scopes on them. And they were yelling at me, you know, put your hands up, put your hands up.

“What is going on?” Young asked. “There’s nobody else here, I live alone. I mean, what is going on here? You’ve got the wrong house. I live alone.”

The officers couldn’t have cared less about being in the wrong home and they had to neutralize threat posed by this innocent naked woman.

“It’s one of those moments where I felt I could have died that night,” she said. “Like if I would have made one wrong move, it felt like they would have shot me. I truly believe they would have shot me.”

Young repeatedly told the officers that they were in the wrong home, but they didn’t care. Throughout the course of the unlawful raid, Young told her captors a total of 43 times that they had the wrong home.

“Who are you looking for?” Young asked.

“I’ve been living here for four years and nobody lives here but me,” she yelled.

“I’m telling you this is wrong,” Young continued. “I have nothing to do with whoever this person is you are looking for.”

“OK, OK, you don’t have to shout,” the sergeant said.

“I don’t have to shout?” Young yelled. “This is f**king ridiculous. You’ve got me in handcuffs. I’m naked, and you kicked my house in. I keep telling you, you’ve got the wrong place.”


CBS 2 discovered that an informant had made up an address and given it to police. Police then took the word of this informant and carried out the raid without first verifying who lived at the address. As CBS 2 reports:

Despite no evidence in the complaint that police made efforts to independently verify the informant’s tip, such as conducting any surveillance or additional checks as required by policy, the search warrant was approved by an assistant state’s attorney and a judge.

But CBS 2 quickly found, through police and court records, the informant gave police the wrong address. The 23-year-old suspect police were looking for actually lived in the unit next door to Young at the time of the raid and had no connection to her.

Adding to the shocking level of incompetence is the fact that police could have easily tracked the person they wanted — because he was wearing an ankle monitor at the time.

Police then waged a campaign of secrecy and refused to release any information.

When Young attempted to obtain the body camera footage through a Freedom of Information Act request, she was denied. CBS 2 was also denied.

“I feel like they didn’t want us to have this video because they knew how bad it was,” Young said. “They knew they had done something wrong. They knew that the way they treated me was not right.”

Young’s lawyer eventually obtained the video as part of her lawsuit but the city still attempted to block it. According to CBS 2, hours before the TV version of this report broadcast, the city’s lawyers attempted to stop them from airing the video by filing an emergency motion in federal court.

Obviously, they were unsuccessful.

Unfortunately, despite this blatant violation captured on camera, no one will likely be held accountable as this is not the first time incidents like this have happened. TFTP has documented at least a dozen raids by Chicago police in just the last year that were carried out on innocent families. In spite of taxpayers shelling out millions in lawsuit settlements, the CPD seems unconcerned with correcting themselves — proving they are accountable to no one.
Why are they trying to cover it up? this is what the body cams are FOR.
BTW
The person they were looking for was in an apartment a few doors away...
Under House Arrest...
WITH AN ANKLE BRACELET ON!


Not the 1st time this stuff has happened to either
the local news channel has a running segment on the problem for... 2 years
https://chicago.cbslocal.com/categor...m/unwarranted/

POLICE REFORM
Seems like it would b an easy problem to fix.
Simply get some REAL intel BEFORE you bust into people's homes.
Is that crazy talk?

And sadly it looks like Chicago police also need training on how to deal with women "suspects" who are in states of undress.

Would saying, "Treat them like you'd treat your mom" be to much to ask?
or are naked females to dangerous for 9 armed male cops?

This crap makes no sense to me.

She will rightly sue and I hope she gets every dime she deserves. They even refused to fix her door because, "the search warrant was valid".

The thing is when she wins her suit, the taxpayers will pay for it and nothing at all will happen to those responsible. And the cycle of incompetence and abuse will go on.

I want to say, I do not believe in de-funding the police.
  1. The best candidate for the job needs to be hired. The idea that you can be overqualified and therefore past over for the job is beyond asinine.
  2. Police officers should be required to carry their own "malpractice" insurance. The same as Doctors and other profession.
  3. Police that break the law should face harsher punishment that citizens. Not less. Double fines for a police officer that speeds. Etc...
  4. Qualified immunity should be abolished. It was made up by the courts. Courts should not be making law. If the people want qualified immunity, it should be passed into law by the legislative branch.
  5. Police should be held accountable for their behavior. They should be investigated by a 3rd party organization not by themselves.
  6. Police should be required to wear bodycams and keep them turned on while they are on duty. If they turn them off, they should bear the burden of proof that they didn't do so to hide something.
  7. Police should not be punished for misbehavior by rewarding criminals. For example, nothing will happen to these officers who broke into the wrong house. If they had broken into the house without a warrant, nothing would happen to them. But if they broke into an actual criminals house without a warrant, the punishment would be that any evidence they found wouldn't be admissible and the criminal would likely go free. How messed up is it that what you are trying to protect, the innocent being secure in there privacy and possessions, can be impugned without consequence while those who are not innocent are protected. If a police officer enters a residence without a warrant, he should be charged with breaking and entering, the same as anyone else. If a police officer lies to obtain a warrant, the same with fraud heaped on top of it. Let any evidence he finds in, with the understanding that said evidence is being provided by a criminal.

I've got some other ideas as well. But that would be a good start.

According to the OP nothing is going to happen to hold the police accountable. But reality is different.

Quote:
Inspector General Joe Ferguson on Wednesday shed more light on the nature of his investigation into the botched police raid on the wrong house that humiliated an innocent woman and left her handcuffed while naked for 40 minutes.

Ferguson’s investigation, demanded by Chicago aldermen, is one of three being conducted on the February 2019 incident at the home of Anjanette Young that has severely shaken public trust in Mayor Lori Lightfoot because it was captured on bodycam video that the city’s Law Department tried to conceal.

The other investigations are being conducted by the Civilian Office of Police Accountability and, at Lightfoot’s request, by former federal Judge Ann Claire Williams.
https://chicago-suntimes-com.cdn.amp...pector-general

In the headlong rush to condemn the police the OP glides right over the prosecutor and judges failure to do due diligence in evaluating the search warrant application and lies by omission about the real cover up by Mayor Lightfoot’s Legal Office. It's unlikely the police officers carrying out the search warrant were responsible for the shoddy work done with the warrant application but that didn't prevent the so-called reporting from calling them terrorists.

Thanks in large part to Mayor Lightfoot’s failure Chicago has descended into hyper violence where street gangs shoot it out for control of the drug trade. It's not surprising the police exercise caution and control when executing a search warrant. 40 minutes may be excessive to leave a suspect naked but the OP doesn't give any explanation of why the police did this. It may be it took them that long to secure the premises. But that doesn't serve the sensational narrative of Police hold naked woman for 40 minutes.

Every one of those responsible for this should be tried and convicted and lose their job. And sued individually and pay personally and individually. But you're correct. Nothing will happen.

I'm sure there's more blame to go around but is what your saying is that the police were "just following orders" and
therefore are not responsible for their actions?
I guess that's why they cut the body cams off right?, to protect the mayor.

Are you denying the cops had a responsibility to check the warrant before they went out... as they did in the parking lot... AFTER THE FACT.
Are you saying they HAD TO leave the woman naked... and handcuffed for 40 minutes? to "secure" a 3 bedroom apartment? seriously?
And that's THE MAYOR's Fault AZ?
really?

"the sensational narrative"? sheesh man.
This is why we have such a difficult time getting honest police reform, and people get so frustrated that some start thinking they need to "defund the police" completely.
Because some people can not bring themselves to BELIEVE (or admit) ANY wrong doing on the part of the police, or even police policy.

It seems to me that the 'police can do no wrong' crowd and the 'defund to police' crowd are the minorities. (loud obnoxious minorities) I'm SURE that they are minority on the 'defund the police' side.
But I find that many people on the right are almost hardwired to believe the police and military are saints that should never be questioned, challenged, examined or ask to change for the better. They are assumed 99.9% good, as is, everywhere, at all times.... except for "a few bad apples".

But i do think the needle has moved for many on the right of the last 20 years or so.
Hopefully more of us can move to the understanding that policing is not really a left right issue.
Policing, like fire service, is job that has to be done with best practices in mind for the good of all communities.

You are absolutely, correct. The prosecutor(s) and judge(s) involved in this fiasco should be held accountable as well. They won't be. But they should be. Same goes for the mayor's legal office.

Quote:

Pure BS. Come on Arizona at least have the honesty to hold these officers accountable for the crap they pulled.

1. The officers made no effort to verify who was in the apartment. They just broke in with an assumption they were right.
2. The officers made no effort to verify where the suspect WHO HAD AN ANKLE MONITOR WITH LOCATION TRACKER was at.
3. After the officers broke in, they hand cuffed the naked compliant woman they found inside. It's questionable if this was actually necessary.
4. It absolutely was not necessary to force her to stand naked in front of multiple officers coming in and out for 20+ minutes before offering her a blanket and then only after allowing her to stand for another 10 minutes with the blanket hanging open, did one single officer take compassion on her and help her hold the blanket closed. The other officers can rot in hell where they deserve. Only the one that took compassion on her do I have any respect for. And even then, it came far to late.
5. The officers left her with a door they smashed that could not be secured in a part of Chicago where their FEAR caused them to do a no knock raid instead of knocking on the door and announcing themselves. If it's too dangerous for cops to announce themselves, don't you think it's too dangerous to leave a single woman without a way to secure her door?
6. The police refused to pay for the repair to the door their mistake caused. We can pay all this money to officers to go out in the middle of the night and smash a door down, but we can't pay a fraction of that cost to have the door fixed when we obviously $%#$ed up because, "the warrant was signed by a judge".
7. The police and every one up the chain absolutely refuse to admit they screwed up. They fought like crazy to hide what they did. Instead of someone taking responsibility and saying yeah we #$#%#$ed up, we are so sorry, here's how we are going to fix it. They say, "We didn't do anything wrong. We aren't going to pay for your door. If you want anyone to take responsibility, you have to sue." And that... that... is the most grievous sin of all. I don't care if they weren't directly at fault. If they had faulty information. If they had every reason to believe and do what they did. When they knew it was a mistake. They were the instruments of the grievance even if they weren't the cause. They should have said, "We're sorry, this shouldn't have happened. We are going to fix all the damage and we are going to post officers outside on the street to watch over you until your residence can be secured." You know they would do that for one of their own. THe problem is, they don't consider this woman to be one of their own.

Do I believe this was racist? No..
Do I believe police departments are inherently racist? No... I do believe there are racist police, but the police are not inherently racist.

But, when you give someone absolute power and don't hold them accountable when they abuse it, they WILL abuse it.

If you watch the news videos on this it was explained that an informant lied to the police and said a person out on probation had guns in his apartment (he didn't) and that he lived in that apartment.

This man was out on probation. They did nothing to verify what they were told. They didn't check to see what his actual apartment number was or where he was. He HAD A FREAKING ANKLE TRACKER. This was pure incompetence.

Quote:

It didn't, watch the body cam video (woman is blurred out) it took them about 15 seconds to secure the 3 bedroom apartment, then a whole bunch of police spend about 20 minutes milling around not wanting to admit they %#$#ed up royally. Trying to lay the blame on her and questioning her while she stood there NAKED. There was no reason they couldn't have secured her privacy while also protecting themselves. Pure incompetence.

Quote:

Sometimes the media sensationalize things and use a narrative to further sensationalize things against the police. I agree. But this was so horrific, it didn't have to be sensationalized. Watch the body cam footage ask yourself if this was my mother, my sister, my daughter, would I be happy with the behavior of these officers?

Everyone needs to be held accountable for this.

The judge who signed off on the warrant.
The judge's clerk who prepared and checked it.
The prosecutor who brought it to the judge.
The police who didn't bother to check the address or the location of the suspect.
The police who failed to show any compassion on the woman and move to protect her privacy.
The police who left her unprotected after smashing her door in.
The administrators who refused to pay for her smashed door.
The administration who fought to hide what happened from the public.
The lawyers who did their bidding and filed the motions to keep it from the public.
Everyone who refuses to admit this was a #$$#$ up and take responsibility and help this woman.

All of them, all of them are responsible. All of them should be held accountable. They won't be. But they should be.

The officer who gave her a blanket and moved to hold it closed needs to be commended and told to do it quicker next time.

Like a hound dog with a bone. They do that stuff all the time. That's why people try to get into 'better' neighborhoods without a history of lowdowns.
When it happens in a decent neighborhood is when you hear the caterwallin.
