Chicago Looters Trash Ronald McDonald Charity House

Share on Facebook

The civil unrest in this country has reached a new level after rioters in Chicago have smashed-up a Ronald McDonald charity house filled with sick children and their families.

This looting has really divided opinions.

The death of George Floyd was the spark that has set off protests all over the globe.

But the movement has gained traction unlike ever before.

And they are all marching for one thing: for racism and injustice to end once and for all.

Leaving residents and business owners in fear of losing what they’ve worked so hard to build.

Due to these riots, the Black Lives Matter movement is dominating global headlines, and it has completely taken over social media.

For instance, a group of people painted large yellow letters saying “Black Lives Matter” down two blocks of 16th Street in D.C – a two-lane road that coincidentally leads to the White House.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been taking to the streets in the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

And people are continuing to demand justice.

Including Chicago’s Ronald McDonald House which had its doors smashed on Monday night during rioting and looting.

The house provides shelter and resources to those with children in local hospitals.

Lisa Mitchell, of Ronald McDonald House Charities, said: “We were very concerned there was a lot of activity right in front of the house, people making choices that could put them at risk and put our families at risk so the staff was frightened.”

They had to watch helplessly as the night drew on.

“They are already in a really, really difficult spot, and having this kind of additional stress and worry about getting to and from the hospital even though we are 5 blocks away because of safety concerns is just doubling the strain,” Mitchell said.

And no one was injured, as everyone inside the facility was under lockdown the whole night.

The cleanup began on Tuesday morning as people returned to open up their businesses.

Cash registers and ATM’s were among the things ransacked. And one bank was also broken into.

Even more surprising was that looters didn’t seem worried about being caught by police or being recorded.

Which were reportedly brought to smash windows.

More than 100 people were arrested in response to the riots.

Leaving parking lots littered with glass and packaging.

Not to mention the looting earlier this year that devastated local businesses. Let’s hope this doesn’t cause a backlash to the BLM movement as a whole…
