‘You Have the Wrong Place:’ Body Camera Video Shows Moments Police Handcuff Innocent, Naked Woman During Wrong Raid

For the first time, police body camera video reveals what an innocent woman said happened to her nearly two years ago: police officers wrongly entered her home with guns drawn and handcuffed her naked as she watched in horror.

CHICAGO (CBS) — For the first time, police body camera video reveals what an innocent woman said happened to her nearly two years ago: police officers wrongly entered her home with guns drawn and handcuffed her naked as she watched in horror.

“I feel like they didn’t want us to have this video because they knew how bad it was,” Young said.

“It was so traumatic to hear the thing that was hitting the door,” Young said, as she watched the video.

As they rushed inside with guns drawn, officers yelled, “Police search warrant,” and “Hands up, hands up, hands up. ” Seconds later, Young could be seen in the living room, shocked and completely naked, with her hands up.

“What is going on?” Young yelled in the video.

Using body camera video and police and court records, CBS 2 pieced together – moment by moment – not only how Young was treated during the raid, but also how police failed to check the bad tip that led them there.

About two minutes after police entered the home, an officer found a blanket and wrapped it around Young as she sobbed and repeatedly asked officers who they were looking for.

“They just threw something over me, and my hands are behind me and I’m handcuffed,” Young said in an interview.

“No, no one else lives here,” Young said.

“Oh my God, this cannot be right,” Young said during the raid.

“That piece of paper [search warrant] gives them the right to, you know, that says you can do X, Y, Z based on what’s on that paper,” Young said.

“It wasn’t initially approved or some crap,” one officer said.

“I have no idea,” the first officer said.

“Who are you looking for?” Young asked.

“I’m telling you this is wrong,” Young continued.

Jalonda Blassingame’s young sons said officers pointed guns at them, leaving them traumatized, like dozens of other children CBS 2 interviewed as part of its two-year investigative series.

“They are adding trauma to people’s lives that will be with them the rest of their lives,” Young said.

“I don’t have to shout?” Young yelled.

“Just leave and let me move on, this is so crazy,” Young said, still in tears.

On Nov. 25, 2020 – more than a year since COPA began investigating – COPA said it “is still in the process of serving allegations and conducting all necessary officer interviews. ”

“The work is warranted – they need to do the work,” Young said.
