A jaw-dropping video appears to show a crowd of thieves looting TVs from a moving train near Chicago on Sunday as protests over the death of George Floyd rage.
The footage, posted on YouTube Tuesday, shows dozens of people climbing aboard the snail-paced cargo train and raiding boxes of big screen TVs. Some of the crooks then hop off the train and flee.
The train is moving. The train is moving bro, look These folks are stealing, a man shooting the footage can be heard saying.

They did it. A moving train too.
I'm shocked no one was ran over.
Gangs have been looting trains all along the US Mexico border for decades.
everyone wants to get in on the action
...and that’s in the US?
Wow, what we’re becoming.
Feral sub-human animals that should’ve been put down on the spot.
In China, they’d be shot. In the Arab countries, their hands chopped off. In this country we disband police, give the stations to the “oppressed”, create holidays celebrating diversity, stand down while watching the dreams of the small business owners go up in flames, and kneel to the a-holes. I never thought I’d see this here. It might just be too late to fix it.
That’s not a protest. Lying scum media.
All cultures are equal.
I believe the technical word is "sh&thole".
IIRC there is a large Metra ( Metropolitan Rail) Police station right there at Grand and Western ave yards???
“The Metra Police Department is a professional force of more than 100 sworn officers who are responsible for the security of Metra passengers, employees, equipment, yards, stations and other Metra property. Metra Police handle a variety of tasks ranging from civilian complaints to criminal activity.
They must be working from home because of the virus going around?
Due to Cook Countys orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic, no arrests were made.
Thank G_d for that. Yes, sarcasm.
ASOC yea but this was in Chicago. I expect better in America.
We are becoming a cesspool thanks to the demoRats.
It was a mostly peaceful looting.
None of this is free. We all pay for every single broken lock, window, paint scrub, dent, TV...........
They were not looting. They were stealing.
George Floyd died for our viewing pleasure!
If a smartphone can have a tracker in order to recover a stolen or lost item, why not a TV, which can cost just about the same as an iPhone or some other high-end phone.
Funny how they knew which container the TVs were in.
BLM = Blacks Looting Merchandise
