A man currently facing two counts of felony theft allegedly told a 14-year-old boy “you’re a racist and you ain’t gonna do sh*t” as he stole his bike outside of a North Milwaukee bike shop.
Isaac Lacy, 22, is now charged with two counts of felony robbery, according to CWB Chicago, following a short-lived crime spree in the afternoon of August 18.
Prosecutors said that Lacy wandered up to the 14-year-old victim and another minor outside Boulevard Bikes in Northern Milwaukee, asking the pair for a cigarette. When the interaction went south, Lacy accused both of the juveniles of being racist before taking off with one of the minor’s bikes and threatening the teens to do something about the theft.
“You’re a racist and you ain’t gonna do sh*t,” Lacy allegedly told the victim as he left with their bike.
Thirty minutes later, Lacy rode the stolen bike a few blocks away to a group of people stood outside a home and asked them for a cigarette. Lacy then allegedly ripped a phone out of the hands of a 23-year-old female victim. When the group protested at the robbery, Lacy allegedly challenged the victim and witness to a fight.
However, when a squad car rolled down the block, Lacy returned the stolen phone in an apparent change of heart.
Both victims identified Lacy following the incidents. The teenage victim managed to identify the stolen bike from the inception of the spree.
In nearby Chicago, a Black Lives Matter organizer recently defended the looting to take place on the city’s Magnificent Mile, calling it “reparation,” as the high end retailers were insured. The looting was sparked by the police shooting of a man to be shot in the shoulder after opening fire at Chicago Police.
The local black community in Englewood–where the shooting took place–repelled a caravan of BLM agitators and other affiliated protesters as some residents feared that their neighborhood could have been destroyed in the protests.
