CHICAGO – Store after store on the world-renowned Magnificent Mile were boarded up this week in the aftermath of yet another round of violence and looting last weekend, as photos taken by Mark Weyermuller showed. 

Streets were deserted as workers did what they could to protect what remained in the stores whose shelves were cleared by criminals that broke into the establishments early Monday morning – an attack, Chicago officials say that was provoked by social media. 

Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx, who has been facing harsh criticism over her record of letting go thousands of felony cases, told reporters Friday she had 42 felony cases she was pursuing as a result of the looting.
