The botched Chicago police raid on Anjanette Young’s home was no ‘mistake that happens’

Anjanette Young, who was a victim of a botched raid by the Chicago Police Department in 2019, speaks to the press outside CPD headquarters on Dec. 16, 2020. | Pat Nabong/Sun-Times

Would retired police lieutenant Robert Stasch “gain perspective” if this happened to his mother, sister, wife or daughter? Here’s a challenge to retired Chicago Police Department Lieutenant Robert Stasch and his recent letter to the editor: Please put into “proper perspective” why what happened to Anjanette Young should be classified as one of those “mistakes do happen” instances?
Explain why it’s acceptable for 12 male police officers to strip Ms. Young of her humanity and dignity. No comparison of medical malpractice lawsuits will help me “gain perspective.”
I ask Mr. Stasch, would he “gain perspective” if this happened to his mother, sister, wife or daughter? If his home were invaded, and he were handcuffed and forced to stand nude in front of his fellow officers, would he have “proper perspective?”
SEND LETTERS TO: letters@suntimes.com. Please include your neighborhood or hometown and a phone number for verification purposes. Letters should be 350 words or less.
My perspective is that once again CPD failed to conduct proper due diligence to avoid going to the wrong address. Again, CPD demonstrated its disrespect and callousness when carrying out search warrants in communities of color. All because CPD was searching for one gun.
I can’t imagine any perspective that will help me understand why this horrendous incident qualifies as a mistake that happens.

Don’t need that $600? Give it to the needy
If Larry Craig is concerned about receiving his $600, as he wrote in his letter to the editor, I have a solution for him.
Give $10 to the next 60 panhandlers he encounters. Sure, a few may be scamming, but they will spend the money, just like the truly needy will.
