Jesse Jackson: Chicago Looting ‘Humiliating, Embarrassing & Morally Wrong’

Rebecca Klar, The Hill, August 10, 2020

The Rev. Jesse Jackson condemned the looting reported in Chicago early Monday morning and warned that it should not be associated with the push for social justice.


Chicago police reported widespread looting and vandalism across Chicago early Monday.

“This was not an organized protest, rather this was an incident of pure criminality. This was an act of violence against our police officers and against our city,” Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said at a briefing.
