VIDEO: BLM Leader in Chicago Calls Stealing “Reparations”

Members of Black Lives Matter had a press conference on Monday in front of a Police District to demand the release of some looters who had been arrested Sunday for stealing from upscale stores in downtown Chicago’s Magnificant Mile district.

“That’s a reparation,” Leader Ariel Atkins said. “Anything they want to take, take it because these businesses have insurance.”

Fox News reported on the unrest and said the BLM activists were downtown at a rally to “support the more than 100 arrested last night following widespread looting and rioting that caused at least $60 million in property damage and saw 13 police officers injured, according to a report.

One member of the event told news, “Black Americans should be tax-exempt (personal and business), still receive credits. Automatically qualify for FHA loans for first time home buyers, the government should pay all mortgage interest and higher education should be free…for the next 400 years.”
A leader of BLM said at the rally that looting and stealing was a form of reparations because it helped to clothe people and helped them eat.

“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” said  Atkins according to NBC Chicago. “That makes sure that person has clothes.”


Reaction TO NBC Story:

Chicago police said the looting began after officers shot a man in the city’s Englewood neighborhood on Sunday afternoon. Authorities say the man, identified as 20-year-old Latrell Allen, had a gun and fired at police before they returned fire, striking and wounding him.

Allen now faces attempted murder charges after the incident.

“This person fired shots at our officers,” CPD Superintendent David Brown said. “Officers returned fire and struck the individual.”

That is when massive looting and wide-scale rioting happened.

Two days after the massive uprising business along the area is reported to be at a standstill.  Local Shop owners are in danger of being completely destroyed.

A local restaurant owner on the Mag Mile talked to Fox News and said,”The looting occurring in Chicago is “very scary and disturbing,” said local business owner Roupen Demirdjian on Tuesday.”

If it’s for food and clothing, I do believe there are other avenues than looting and rioting,” said Demirdjian, whose family emigrated to the city from Armenia in 1970 and opened their restaurant, Sayat Nova, on the Magnificent Mile.

He said he loves the city and is not planning to relocate.

    That blm bulls**t is just that BULLSh*t. Looting, stealing are the same things. SO they say it’s to feed an clothe the person doing the stealing. Just how are Gucci going to clothe them ? They can’t sell any of it, an that goes for everything else they stole. It is what it is; STEALING because they wanted to. They are to lazy to work an have been living off us for decades. For those who don’t know one decade is 10 years.
