The True Victims of the Chicago Riots

• https://fee.org by Brad Polumbo

The riots rocking American cities have received less coverage lately, but they never really stopped. On Sunday, Chicago, Illinois suffered another rampage that left 13 police officers injured and entire city blocks in ruins.

Coordinated via social media, a large group of looters converged in downtown Chicago around 1:00 a.m. on Sunday morning and began smashing windows and ransacking storefronts.

The looters initially focused on high-end stores such as Tesla, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Coach, as the criminals made their way through Chicago's "Magnificent Mile" shopping district. But soon enough, the marauding spread to shops like Walgreens and Old Navy. U-Hauls were spotted being loaded with spoils and multiple shootings broke out.
