CHICAGO CITY ATTORNEYS ATTEMPT TO BLOCK LOCAL CBS AFFILIATE FROM AIRING BODYCAM FOOTAGE OF POLICE RAID ON WRONG HOME. ‘You Have the Wrong Place:’ Body Camera Video Shows Moments Police Handcuff Innocent, Naked Woman During Wrong Raid.
Last year, Anjanette Young filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the video to show the public what happened to her that day. CBS 2 also filed a request for the video. But the Chicago Police Department denied the requests.
Young recently obtained the footage after a court forced CPD to turn it over as part of her lawsuit against police.
“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.”
Hours before the TV version of this report broadcast, the city’s lawyers attempted to stop CBS 2 from airing the video by filing an emergency motion in federal court.

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. CBS 2 also found police could have easily tracked the suspect’s location and where he really lived because at the time of the raid, he was wearing an electronic monitoring device.
Twitchy notes that “If Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot were a Republican, every Dem in America would be calling for her resignation right now.” Particularly given that as ZeroHedge spotted in June, “As BLM Protests Raged, Chicago Saw Highest Black-On-Black Murder Rate In 60 Years.” Just think of the media as Democratic Party operatives with bylines, to understand why Mayor Corona Destroyer will likely have no pushback from old media.
Chicago’s last Republican mayor left office in 1931.
