This week, businesses all over the city are continuing to pick up the pieces two weeks after looting and rioting gripped the city. Some owners, especially on the South Side, say they are struggling to stay afloat, and that the damage has exacerbated the economic troubles they were already facing because of the coronavirus pandemic.
As the looting reached one South Side strip mall, 13 Chicago police officers were allegedly sitting in U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush’s campaign office, lounging around while microwaving popcorn and making coffee. Mayor Lori Lightfoot called the officers’ actions an “unspeakable indignity” and vowed to hunt them down.
“That’s just proof of what most of us seen anyways,” said LaShawn Patton said, who owns a barbershop in the plaza, referencing the lack of police response many Chicago residents say they witnessed as civil unrest erupted throughout the city.
Also this week, the city started slowly reopening some of its major hotspots, like the Chicago Riverwalk and Navy Pier.
It’s been another busy week, and there might be some stories you missed. We’ll catch you up.
