CBS 2 also filed a request for the video. But the Chicago Police Department denied the requests. Young recently obtained the footage after a court forced CPD to turn it over as part of her lawsuit against police. They knew that the way they treated me was not right.
If you believe police have wrongly entered your home, tell us about it here. The video reveals on Feb. Not long before, the d social worker finished her shift at the hospital and had undressed in her bedroom. Outside, officers repeatedly struck her door with a battering ram. From various angles, the video captured the moments they broke down the door and burst through her home. And they were yelling at me, you know, put your hands up, put your hands up. Young looked terrified and confused as she watched officers search the home.
An officer put her hands behind her back and handcuffed her as she stood naked. I mean, what is going on here? I live alone. I truly believe they would have shot me.
Using body camera video and police and court records, CBS 2 pieced together — moment by moment — not only how Young was treated during the raid, but also how police failed to check the bad tip that led them there. Young recently agreed to an interview to discuss the body camera video after she first spoke to CBS 2 last year.
CBS 2 blurred portions of the video in which Young was unclothed. With her hands bound behind her back, the video shows an officer wrapped a short coat around her shoulders. But the coat only covered her shoulders and upper back — leaving her front completely exposed as she stood against the wall. Officers stood around her home — in the kitchen, the living room and the hallways — while she remained naked. About two minutes after police entered the home, an officer found a blanket and wrapped it around Young as she sobbed and repeatedly asked officers who they were looking for.
The blanket continued to slide open and expose her body. One video clip shows an officer stood in front of Young but made no attempt to cover her. Another officer walked over and held the blanket closed. Young told police at least 43 times they were in the wrong home.
She repeatedly asked them to allow her to get dressed and told them she believed they had bad information. Police did have bad information, CBS 2 Investigators uncovered, and they failed to do basic checks to confirm whether they had the correct address before getting the search warrant approved. The document said the officer found a photo of the suspect in a police database and showed it to the informant, who confirmed it was him.
The officer then drove the informant to the address where the informant claimed the suspect lived. But CBS 2 quickly found, through police and court records, the informant gave police the wrong address. The year-old suspect police were looking for actually lived in the unit next door to Young at the time of the raid and had no connection to her. The body camera video also raises questions about the approval of the warrant. In one clip, officers in a squad car reviewed their notes and can be heard talking. This is not the first time police failed to do basic checks that would have contradicted bad information given by an informant.
Last year, CBS 2 interviewed the Blassingame family who were wrongly raided by police in CBS 2 quickly found the suspect police were looking for had no connection to the Blassingames and had been in prison at the time of the raid for years. The system is broken. Many of the families interviewed, including Young, filed lawsuits against police.
They viewed Ms. Young as less than human. Young said the way officers treated and spoke to her during the raid amplified the trauma she experienced. The video shows she was visibly upset and afraid as she asked police questions, but did not immediately receive any answers about why officers were there.
About 13 minutes into the raid, a female officer who later arrived walked Young to her room so she could get dressed, but put the handcuffs back on afterward. Police continued to question Young while she was clothed. I follow the law. After nearly 20 minutes, police finally removed the handcuffs.
Toward the end of the raid, the sergeant apologized to Young, the video shows. Officers then attempted to fix her door with a hammer.Bodycam video shows police raid wrong house, mayor apologizes to victim - ABC7 Chicago
Even though the incident happened in February ofCOPA did not open the investigation or contact Young until nine months later when CBS 2 first broke the story online. On Nov. While Young continues to live with trauma — that feeling of safety at home, she said, is lost — she leans on her church for healing and support. She believes she has a responsibility to use her voice to help protect others.
