An ordinance that would have restricted Chicago police raids on homes following a botched operation caught on camera in 2019 did not get enough votes.
Police raided Anjanette Young’s home by mistake in 2019. Officers handcuffed Young naked and allegedly wouldn’t let her cover up while they searched her home.
The Chicago Committee on Public Safety voted 10-4 Thursday against the measure bearing Young’s name.
The proposal would have required Chicago police officers to follow a new set of changes under city law, including a ban on the use of warrants and giving residents 30 seconds to open the door when officers approach them. a house.

The ordinance came after the 2019 raid on Young’s home. Body camera footage showed Young repeatedly telling officers they had gone to the wrong house.
Investigators had arrived at his home after an unidentified informant provided his address, claiming a man illegally possessed a gun on the property. Young, a black social worker, had come home from work and was undressing for bed when police burst in.
