Loop windows smashed overnight during Chicago's protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapol

Source: Chicago Tribune

Confrontations between protesters and Chicago police intensified in the downtown area overnight during continued marches over the death of George Floyd.

By the time the demonstrators dispersed, from Chicago’s downtown area early Saturday, windows of several Loop businesses were broken, leaving shards of glass strewn on the streets and sidewalks. Garbage cans and flower pots were also toppled over.

By about 4:30 a.m., a truck from a board-up company could be seen outside a State Street Old Navy store, which had its windows damaged. A group of people could also be seen inside a Champs sports apparel store near State and Madison streets assessing damage from a broken front window there.

A work crew was shoveling broken glass outside Jewelers Row at Madison and Wabash Avenue, where a couple of businesses had their front windows shattered or cracked.

3. With so many instigators joining the peaceful protest,

the story should explain if the police/supremacists broke the windows.

Any traffic cameras are controlled by CPD, so good luck finding an intact copy of their tapes. Only business security footage would be intact, but confiscated/erased by now.

The truth is in citizens' cell phones.

Is it true that the Jane Byrne Interchange has 26" of snow every day of the year? (A little joke for my Chicago brothers and sisters.)
