The former Sears historic building on Lake Street, with the global market on the main floor, was involved in the police-killing inspired riots last night. We have sold the condo we once owned there, the home of Kathleen’s brother before he died. He loved his place on the tenth floor.
According to residents, two windows were smashed in the Global Market, site of many small businesses, but looters were kept away by an unarmed security guard who bravely posted himself in the broken window. Residents are grateful for his actions, and have started a fund for the family of this courageous black man who did not desert his post.
