Law enforcement in Chicago have been criticised for allegedly parking a ‘bait truck’ filled with Nike sneakers in a disadvantaged neighbourhood, leading to numerous arrests.

The response on social media has been strong. Videos show locals protesting against the bait tactics and confronting police, while other posts suggest the initiative is blatant prejudice.

The use of bait vehicles is said to be a common police tactic in high-crime areas throughout the US, and is often used to stamp out car theft.
