A Chicago ordinance to restrict police raids on residences after a botched operation that was caught on camera in 2019 did not receive enough votes.
In 2019, Anjanette Young’s house was raided by police. Young was allegedly not allowed to cover herself while officers searched her house.
The Chicago Public Safety Committee voted against the Young-named measure by a 10-4 vote on Thursday.
According to the proposal, Chicago police officers would be required to make changes to city law to ensure that residents are able to answer the door if officers enter a house.

A warrant cannot be obtained by an officer based on information received from an informant alone.
After the 2019 raid at Young’s home, the ordinance was passed. The body-camera footage showed Young telling officers repeatedly that they were at the wrong address.
Unnamed informants had provided Young’s address and claimed that a man illegally owned a gun at her house. Investigators arrived at her residence. Young, a Black social worker had just returned from work, and was getting ready to go to bed when officers arrived.

The city attempted to block the release of the video. Young was able to obtain it after he filed a lawsuit.
Later, she reached a $2.9million settlement with the city.
