However, emails sent to her and that she responded to show she knew about the issue of botched raids, which CBS2-TV had been reporting on for months. Those emails will be made public, Lightfoot said, who added that she did not see the video of the raid until Tuesday morning.

Anjanette Young was home and in the middle of changing clothes when police battered down her door with guns drawn. For 20 minutes she was handcuffed, naked as she plead for them to let her put on clothes. Police later discovered they had raided the wrong apartment. An investigation by CBS 2 Chicago revealed that the suspect they were searching for could have been easily found because he was wearing an ankle monitoring device. A federal judge rejected the request.
Anjanette Young said she is still dealing with the aftermath two years after Chicago police officers stormed into her home while serving a search warrant and handcuffed her naked for several minutes, despite her repeated cries that they were in the wrong home. Young spoke publicly Wednesday amid what her attorney and city activists said was an attempt to cover up the video of the raid, which her attorney described as "a very eerily similar situation" to the one that killed Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. Breonna Taylor tragically lost her life. Miss Young was violated and by the grace of God, she's here to tell her story," said attorney Keenan Saulter.
