A Chicago businessman says he's going to sue the city after police failed to respond when his convenience store was looted for the second time since May. Walid Mouhammad's store was destroyed Monday, when the city experienced widespread looting. He said he watched the looters in real time on surveillance cameras as they ripped out the new steel security door that he'd recently installed, after spending $300,000 to repair the damage done when his store was first looted in May.(Snip) Mouhammad's landlords said they called police multiple times on Monday during the looting, but that authorities didn't show up until it was too late.

Comments:

AOC says looters merely seek a humble crust of bread during hard times created by Donald Trump, and Michael Obama says racist shopkeepers create convenience store deserts by refusing to do business where bLACK people congregate.

He needs to sue the city and in particular the mayor who has handicapped the police

Very sorry for his huge problem, and I wish him well with litigation. But I'd love to know how he votes, and how he intends to vote in November.

First off, he needs to sue whoever installed the steel security grate. Then he needs to get a combat shotgun and be prepared to dissuade the looters if they show up a third time. Or failing that, relocate to a locale with fewer residents inclined to riot at the merest slight to reopen his convenience store.

Feel sorry for the guy. But after it happened the first time instead of having it rebuilt he should have moved to someplace where there are no peaceful protestors.

FTA:Mouhammad is questioning why the looters have taken to attacking small businesses in response to incidents like this. Wow - he doesn't get it. Small businesses are the tasty appetizer before the looters move on to Best Buy and Nordstrom. BTW - I noticed lots of orange juice bottles got left behind in the carnage. Beer and cigarettes were probably cleaned out.

Mohammad has several factors in his favor. FIrst, he ain't white so the racist angle is blurred. Second, he sonds Muzzie so Jihad has to be taken into consideration when the Kneepad Media, Mayor Lightweight and BLM take aim at him. And third, people are growing tired of this stuff and will happily support him, espeically since the usually leftist racist, white supremeist, white privilege angle is taken from them.

Mr. Walid Mohammad is aiming at the wrong target, as neither the City of Chicago or the Chicago Police are under any requirement in the law to protect his business from being destroyed by criminals, so he is bound to loose in court. Mr Mohammad instead should be aiming at the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, that is currently said to be flush with cash, and no doubt that is responsible for organizing and carrying out the looting that destroyed his business. That is further evidenced by the fact that following the looting that a BLM organizer came out in public claiming that supposedly hungry Black people had the right, under her understanding of a phony principle of invented reparations for past slavery, to destroy, loot, and steal merchandise along Chicago’s former so-called Magnificent Mile. Keeping all that in mind, it is obvious that Mr. Muhammad would have a better chance of success in court against BLM then against the City of Chicago or the Chicago Police. In any case with Mr. Muhammad as the plaintiff in a civil suit, The defendant BLM could never succeed in playing a race card claiming that they were being persecuted by White devils.

I think this was covered by the Supreme Court a few years ago. The police are not obligated to assist individual citizens. Hopefully, the mayor can be held responsible for not allowing the police to even attempt to protect the city's businesses. The idiots who say that lives are worth more than buildings have no idea how much money, sweat and time goes into a family business. The criminal on welfare only knows about ownership of shiny baubles, not respectable businesses. Take away the welfare away from any identified rioter. Our taxpayers should not have to pay for the privilege of seeing them tear up their cities.

I cannot feel sorry for people who: 1) Build their homes on the riverbank, only to have them flooded on a regular basis. and 2) Keep rebuilding their business in a major city where the democrat mayor and council allows their voter base to loot and burn that business on a regular basis. Yogi Berra once said, “You can learn a lot just by watching”.

back in the late 50's 5 of us teenagers from Iowa visited Chicago. The city was having gang troubles, so as we walked downtown the police would tell us we could not walk together. There could be no more than 3 people walking in a group. Looks like they could do the same thing today.

If he had insurance that covered his last midnight raid by BLM looters traitors, they most likely dropped him after the first experience. Best to say goodbye and move on to someplace where the people elect people who like law enforcement by supporting them and throwing the book at all who are arrested for participating in looting, destroying, rioting, traitor criminals.

Please pay him so he will stay in Chicago. I heard Walgreens was looted again. Not too long ago they sent out an email saying they were throwing money at BLM and rebuilding in Chicago. I called them and said "If all lives, like the seniors filling prescriptions there, don't matter, then I can't shop there" They deserved what they got.

More Americans approve than disapprove of Joe Biden's choice of Sen. Kamala Harris for the 2020 Democratic ticket by a 25-point margin, 54-29%, in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. Approval of the pick ranges from 86-8% among Democrats to 25-55% among Republicans -- notable that one in four Republicans approves. It's 52-29% among independents, potential swing voters in presidential elections. While reaction to Harris is broadly positive, the margin narrows among those who have strong opinions. Thirty-four percent of Americans strongly approve of her selection, while 22% strongly disapprove, a 12-point margin. One reason is that her strong support

All of these items are interrelated. All three are being eroded.

Since the election upon Benedict’s retirement of Jorge Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, Leatherby has shunned the new pontiff and continued to only refer to Benedict as the church’s true leader in mass. Last week, after several warnings, he was charged with schism, defrocked and excommunicated from the Catholic Church. “I continue to regard Benedict as retaining the Office of Peter, as mysterious as that might be,” he wrote in an open letter
