The owner of a burgled new Chicago store “says he is circulating the surveillance video in hopes of catching the thief and is offering a $500 reward leading to an arrest and conviction.” That’s a little difficult, if the media censor the video.
The blurred-out frame from the video was posted as a twit by Chicago News Now, which linked to the CBS Chicago story below. However, if you hit the link, you’ll see that CBS Chicago has completely removed the video, and disabled comments.
My conclusion: The folks at CBS Chicago are aiding and abetting the burglar.
