Chicago Family ‘Livid’ After Video Shows Man Removing Black Lives Matter Sign from Their Lawn

A North Side family is outraged after someone apparently working for the city went onto their property and turned their Black Lives Matter sign face down.

They shared the story with CBS 2’s Tim McNicholas who is live now in the North Park neighborhood.

“I was livid when I saw the video.”

Dimitri Hepburn’s security video shows a man with a vest walk onto this property, yank up a Black Lives Matter sign, and then turn it face down after it lands on its side.

“He took the time to turn it over so that it was face down,” he said. “It was, I don’t wanna say unbelievable, but shocking.”

Just before that, the man tied a sign to a tree where today CBS 2 found city of Chicago “No Parking” signs in the work zone.

“I think he needs to be held accountable,” Hepburn said.

CBS 2 saw a city truck and multiple city employees working in the area Friday. Workers said they were doing sewer cleaning and they didn’t know anything about the removal of the sign.

Hepburn and his wife said they reached out to Alderman Samantha Nugent (39th) and were told the ward office is looking into it.
