If this is all there is to the charges, there is something seriously wrong with how things are prioritized. Never mind things like double checking addresses or not being hypermacho asshats. Odds that the city refuses to repair the door?

Fuckers aren’t even wearing face masks for Covid, so that’s yet another way they endangered this poor woman’s life.

The person they were actually looking for was wearing a radio tracker, fer chrissakes!

This is the same basic scenario that opens up the movie Brazil, except it’s played up as absurdist comedy, and the victim is white.

The news footage said it happened in February. I think it’s just that the bodycam footage came out recently.

Why don’t they start by knocking on the door? Why does it all have to be special forces nonsense?

He said that if the cops had raided the wrong house in one of Chicago’s affluent neighborhoods and found a naked white woman inside, the bodycam footage would have told a much different story.

The story of a bunch of police getting fired.

Let’s get real, though. If the police had gotten a report of a rich white person having an illegal firearm, they might even openly say it’s credible and do nothing about it.

They reserve that for (white) serial killers and (white) mass-murderers.

After their handling of the Homan Square torture “black site” this response by the city is not surprising in the least.

Fucking traumatizing!

And her asking, “how can this be legal?!?” We all should be asking that, every single Chicagoan and American resident should be asking that. If they aren’t, they are assholes.

They did knock.

Knocked it right down, as a matter of fact.

I did not realize until now that Brazil could be considered a Christmas movie.
