"nearly three years later"Anjanette Young was getting ready for bed after a long day at her job as a social worker when police used a battering ram to smash the front door of her Chicago apartment.
She was naked, alone and terrified in February 2019 when police drew their guns at her and rushed into her home, yelling, “Hands up,” as they announced they were executing a search warrant for a man with a firearm.
Young, sobbing and screaming, pleaded with police dozens of times, “You’ve got the wrong house!” But the group of male officers handcuffed her for 40 minutes, including 10 minutes when she was not allowed to put clothes on, until they determined they were not at the right apartment and she did not commit a crime, according to recently filed government records.
“Oh, my God. This cannot be right!” she said, according to body-cam footage. “How can this be legal?” Nearly three years later, the city’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability is calling for eight Chicago officers to be fired or suspended for their role in the botched home raid.
A new report issued Wednesday raises nearly 100 allegations of misconduct against 15 officers involved in the raid. The report found that officers did not adhere to the “knock-and-announce guidance” that should have allowed Young to put on clothes before police entered her home — one of the many policies and laws violated during the botched raid.
Several did not activate their body cameras. None of the officers at the scene received more than a few hours of warrant-related training as a consequence, according to the report…….
one of the many, many things wrong here
