leader of a Chicago protest said that looting should be viewed as reparations, according to reports.
In Chicago, supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement held a rally on Monday to stand in solidarity with the more than 100 people arrested early that morning during the rioting and looting that took place in the city's downtown area. The looting, which took place during the early hours of Monday morning, caused tens of millions of dollars in damage and injured more than a dozen police officers.
"I don't care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy's or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats ... That is reparations," Ariel Atkins told NBC Chicago.
"Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance," she continued.
The social unrest that led to the Monday morning looting began on Sunday afternoon, when a police officer in the city's Englewood neighborhood was involved in a shootout with a 20-year-old man.
The officer had responded to reports of a man with a gun in the neighborhood. As the officer pursued the suspect, the man reportedly turned, and began firing at the officer. The officer fired back and struck the young man, who was taken to a nearby hospital.
One organizer at the demonstration, which was held outside a police station in the city's South Loop, reportedly said the looting should be viewed as "reparations."

Okay, fine. Let them loot Chicago until the end of the year and then were good, right?
Shooting Looters Dead should be viewed as Justice then.
When I told my hubby this, his answer was: 600,000 white men died so that your black ass could be free. THAT was reparations.
Im Jewish should I start looting german stores for payback for the Holocaust I could use some freebies
BLM is on record inciting a riot. Bookem Dano. And seize their assets
Reparations for all the blacks who were killed by...other blacks?
After all,it’s just things..People are more important than things,right?????
....looting should be viewed as reparations.....
Ah, so to square up the account all these utes need is a pair of Nikes and a flat screen TV?
That’s cheaper than everything the democrats have proposed.
The store owners work for the looters for no pay.
Its almost like slavery
I just can’t eat a thing without my gucci loafers on!
Large TVs Matter
“they can take it because these businesses have insurance,”
My compadre and I were laughing about that at work earlier-any owner of any business knows that once the claim for this damage/loss is paid, that insurer will cancel that business coverage unless the owner moves to a location far away from the present one, in a low crime area-preferably in another town/city...
It is very much like slavery. Blacks sold fellow blacks into slavery. The Democrats sold those who voted for them down the river to the thugs.
Good, then we're done.
So reparations are two pairs of sneakers?
OK, lets call it even.
