Sunday Night Chicago

The first two hours of this marathon stream are cut off. It may be that YT is still processing the video. We monitored the sacking of upscale downtown Chicago via several livestreamers, some recording themselves in the act of looting.

Several instances of shots fired were reported and at least one shooting–of a security guard.

Washington Post headline this morning: “Looters smash business windows along Chicago’s Magnificent Mile after police-involved shooting”. Nothing in the New York Times online.

As it turns out the initial reports circulating in the black community that a fifteen year-old was shot and killed by cops is misinformation. Police say a grown adult fired on officers, was injured in return fire and is recovering in hospital.

The clips at the beginning are from the fine 1991 documentary “Appalachian Journey” by Alan Lomax.
