Cliff Edgeson found shattered glass and empty shelves at his local Walmart on the morning of June 1. He lives in Bronzeville, a neighborhood that Chicago has designated as a food desert because it lacks affordable, nutritious food.⠀ ⠀ “It’s hard to get groceries. Now it’s going to be even harder,” Edgeson, 62, told The Epoch Times. “It’s tearing up our own community.”⠀ ⠀ Edgeson called 911 the night of May 31. He had spotted the looters, many of whom were black teens, he said. But no police came to stop them. His calls were among more than 10,000 calls to 911 about looting over the weekend.⠀ ⠀ Read this article: https://ept.ms/2Muzk9p⠀ ⠀ Get one month FREE FULL ACCESS to Epoch Digital.⠀ Sign up here: https://ept.ms/FreeMonth (no credit card needed)⠀ ⠀ GET THE APP: https://ept.ms/DownloadApp
