CHICAGO (CBS) – The chairmen of Chicago are pushing for a new resolution named after social worker Andrzej Young. She is an innocent woman got into the wrong raid to her home by Chicago police in 2019.
CBS 2 investigators first uncovered the case and video of the raid from the body camera.
The new law requires stricter rules when it comes to search warrants.
The rally took place on Saturday in a gust of wind in Daly Plaza, where sponsors of the Angeneet Young Decree called on other members of the city council to speak out and support it.
“It’s still hard to realize Miss Young’s humiliation, but we need to do something about it, and as city council members we can,” Old said. Sophia the King (4th).
A video from the body camera from February 2019 shows Young standing in handcuffs and naked, surrounded by a group of Chicago police officers standing in their living room, where she was mistakenly stumbled upon.
“Who defended her rights? Who maintained her dignity as a person, a social worker who went out to work that day to serve others in need,” said Latesha Newson, a licensed clinical social worker.
Young, a social worker, said she decided to hold a Saturday rally in March because it is a month of social work.
“The time has come now, and there can be no better topic for all of us to use our voice to tell the truth to the authorities against all systemic issues, including the one we are here for today – the Decree of Anjanet Young,” she said.
If passed, the ordinance will forever change the way officers search warrants and force the Chicago Police Department to add reforms and accountability measures.
Among other things, the ordinance requires knocking, informing and waiting at least 30 seconds before entering the house.
“It’s written in this car, defend and serve. They choose who to protect and serve, and it’s definitely not Miss Young,” Old said. Janet Taylor (20th).
Young’s lawyer said she deserved it an estimate of $ 2.9 millionbut she wants to see reforms and change.
City council deputies are expected to vote on the decision on Wednesday. If this passes, it will prevent incorrect raids in the future.
