Chicago family says their home has been raided by police three times – by mistake

CHICAGO — A family said Chicago police have raided their South Side home several times - by mistake.

Krystal Archie and her children said the raids have happened three times in four months. The family, their lawyer and Mayor Lori Lightfoot are all calling for reform.

Officers are supposed to knock and announce who they are, but the family said that's not what happened.

They claimed the officers burst in, pointed guns at their heads and destroyed the furniture. They also said the officers made jokes while raiding the home.

When Archie asked police why they kept raiding her home, she said one officer told her they needed to figure out what was going on with her neighbors. She said he implied CPD was targeting her apartment because she had a connection to her neighbors, which she said she did not.

Archie's children said they have trouble sleeping and are constantly afraid it will happen again.

Police are investigating these incidents.

    “She said he implied CPD was targeting her apartment because she had a connection to her neighbors, which she said she did not.”
    1) Like she’s going to admit anything and 2)Those black cops must be racist against BLACKS!!!That’s called knowing the clientele too well.

    We live in a society where peoples’ homes can be raided by groups of thugs and people just accept it as normal because it “keeps us safe.” If you know anyone willing to raid homes for colored paper, cut ties to that person until they decide to become a good person, unless you’re just fine living with evil.

      Just disregard uncle Tyrone climbing out the back window with the AK and a kilo of smack.
      Totally believable story.
