Many small businesses are being targeted by looters, many of which have already taken a hit during the pandemic. The protests and pandemic are taking an economic toll across the country. 

One of the Chicago businesses that was hit by looters during city protests on May 30 is Pauline Books and Media, the bookstore run by the Daughters of Saint Paul. Sister Tracey Dugas is one of them, and was there when the shop was broken into. It was scheduled to reopen on June 5. 

While she and the other sisters are alright, she joins Currents News to describe what happened on Saturday night, and what they saw.
