A 4-year-old girl was kept at Gunpoint, once again a family terror as a cops raid home.

Over the past few years, the residents of Chicago are subjected to a militarized police-state occupation. Innocent family after innocent family each rousing within the middle of the night as heavily armed storm troopers throw flashbangs into their homes, haul them outside within the cold, point guns at their heads, and even handcuff babies. These families are being terrorized in their own homes, many of them left with PTSD, and nobody is being held accountable—because the state is that the one behind the phobia.

In the latest instance of absolutism terror administered by Chicago’s finest, a toddler was held at gunpoint and made to the bottom by cops raiding the incorrect home. Highlighting the sheer irresponsible and reckless nature of the Chicago department of local government affecting raids is that the proven fact that this raid was distributed on the incorrect home just weeks after police promised to prevent doing it.

CBS 2, who has been covering Chicago PD’s raids on wrong homes for several years now, interviewed police officials earlier this year who claimed that they were committed to stopping bad raids like these from happening. Prompted by CBS 2’s ongoing investigation, the department changed its warrant policy to confirm additional oversight with warrant approval and more protections for kids.

However, just some weeks later and Sharon Lyons and her family were shaken out of bed when the Chicago Police broke down her door and held her family at gunpoint, including 4-year-old Lillie.

“The next thing I knew, the entire panel to my door came flying down,” Sharon said.

Lillie was asleep in another room. Sharon’s sons 32-year-old Timothy, 35-year-old James, and 30-year-old Julius, who has autism were in other rooms.

Julius ran toward his mother within the kitchen when police burst in.

“Get down, get down, get down!” Julius recalled.

“They had the guns pointed at me, telling me to induce down,” Sharon said. “I got down. I keep asking them, ‘What’s occurring? Please tell me what’s going on.’ I’ve never been through anything like this. they merely kept saying they'd a quest warrant.”

Lillie was asleep across the hall and every one of the adults was being forced to the bottom at gunpoint, unable to comfort the little child.

That’s when Sharon said she witnessed police get into Lillie’s room with guns pointed at her. The family recounted hearing the screams of horror coming from Lillie’s room. The state-sponsored terrorists refused to allow them to get to her room to assist her.

“And I just heard [Lillie] start screaming,” James said through tears. “She was so helpless at the time, nobody could help her.”

When CBS 2 Investigator Dave Savini asked Lille who the cops pointed guns at, the 4-year-old pointed to her grandmother Sharon and said, “her and me.”

Like the countless victims before them, the Lyons were terrorized by cops and a system too incompetent to verify the right address during which to raid. As CBS2 reports:

According to the complaint a few warrant, police were trying to find someone officers only knew by the name of “Blondie.” A paid confidential informant told police they saw “Blondie” selling heroin at the family’s address, records show. In these documents, police described the target as “a black transgendered woman” with a “medium length blonde wig,” who weighs 150 pounds and is between 5 foot 7 inches and 5 foot 9 inches tall.

Other than driving the informant past the building, police documents show they failed to take any additional steps to independently verify the informant’s tip, like surveillance, property records checks, or other research. That, despite police’s commitments to more training and oversight on the method with its new policy only 1 month earlier.

After getting the address wrong and holding a toddler at gunpoint, the department issued a canned statement claiming they prioritize the security of youngsters during these raids on people over arbitrary substances.

“While we cannot investigate the specifics of this incident, the Chicago department of local government prioritizes the protection and welfare of all residents, including children,” a CPD spokesperson said in an exceeding statement emailed to CBS 2. “Furthermore, the Department updated its warrant policy earlier this year to make sure that if children are present, a sensitive approach is going to be taken to safeguard their physical and mental well-being to attenuate trauma following the execution of a look warrant.”

If this is often the way the Chicago department of local government prioritizes the protection of youngsterswe'd hate to determine what not prioritizing it's like.

Sadly, this is often not the primary time incidents like this have happened. The PBWW website has documented a minimum of a pair of raids by Chicago police in mere this year that was meted out on innocent families. In spite of taxpayers administering millions in lawsuit settlements, the CPD seems unconcerned with correcting themselves — proving they're accountable to nobody.
