The Disappeared: Chicago Police Detain Americans At Abuse-Laden ‘Black Site’

 

 

 

 

” The Chicago police department operates an off-the-books interrogation compound, rendering Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside what lawyers say is the domestic equivalent of a CIA black site.

  The facility, a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side known as Homan Square, has long been the scene of secretive work by special police units. Interviews with local attorneys and one protester who spent the better part of a day shackled in Homan Square describe operations that deny access to basic constitutional rights.

  Alleged police practices at Homan Square, according to those familiar with the facility who spoke out to the Guardian after its investigation into Chicago police abuse, include:

  • Keeping arrestees out of official booking databases.
  • Beating by police, resulting in head wounds.
  • Shackling for prolonged periods.
  • Denying attorneys access to the “secure” facility.
  • Holding people without legal counsel for between 12 and 24 hours, including people as young as 15.

  At least one man was found unresponsive in a Homan Square “interview room” and later pronounced dead.

  Brian Jacob Church, a protester known as one of the “Nato Three”, was held and questioned at Homan Square in 2012 following a police raid. Officers restrained Church for the better part of a day, denying him access to an attorney, before sending him to a nearby police station to be booked and charged.”

 

 

   The Guardian , doing the job American media refuses to do , has much more on the state of the American Police State .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Video Shows Cops May Have Lied On the Stand

 

Lying Cops

 

 

 

” The dramatic revelation that five officers had allegedly lied on the witness stand in a Glenview drug case, has called into question dozens of other cases which the officers have pending.

  The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office will only say it is reviewing the matter, but privately, authorities are clearly concerned about a case which fell apart, when the officers were confronted with a video which contradicted their sworn testimony.

  That moment came two weeks ago, when the officers, three from Chicago and two from Glenview, testified at the Skokie courthouse, in the case of a drug suspect named Joseph Sperling.”

Why Police Recover More Guns In Chicago Than Any Other City

 

th (1)

 

 

” It’s not news that Chicago has a gun problem. But that doesn’t make it any more palatable for Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, a firm believer in systems management and improved gun laws as he works to reduce crime in the city.

“ We recover more guns than any city in the country every single year,” McCarthy said.

  McCarthy, who took over as head of the Chicago Police Department in 2011, by way of the New York and Newark, N.J., Police Departments, is confident that state laws and enforcement efforts directly correlated to lowered crime in those cities.

  Specifically New York, he says, has five laws, which Illinois doesn’t, that reduced gun seizures, gun arrests, murders and incarceration.”

  McCarthy is a Tool who does nothing but blame guns for his and the city government’s failure to bring any kind of order to Chicago. Read more here

” A 24-year-old man shot in West Pullman Sunday night was at least the 37th person shot in a violent three-day stretch in Chicago.

  Four people were killed on the first weekend of the year to feature a stretch of warm weather, and the violence began as the school day ended on the warm Friday afternoon when a teenage girl, Gakira Barnes, was fatally shot in Woodlawn.

  In the 2-1/2 days between those two shootings, three people were killed and 36 other people were wounded in shootings.”

Chicago Cops Shot Kids, Mothers Say

 

 

” Chicago police opened fire on a car full of kids and wounded two of them “without provocation, cause or justification of any kind,” two mothers claim in court.
   Catherine Waller and Abena Andoh sued Chicago, its police Officers J.E. Morlock and K.W. Flaherty, and other unknown officers on behalf of Waller’s son D.B., and Andoh’s son D.H.
   The mothers claim Morlock and Flaherty stopped a car containing their kids and “several other minors” three days before Christmas last year, on the South Side.
   Two passengers fled.
  “Seconds later, one or more of the defendant officers opened fire on the remaining occupants of the vehicle, which included D.B and D.H.,” according to the complaint.
  “Defendant officers shot more than a dozen rounds into the vehicle filled with minors without provocation, cause or justification of any kind.
  “That is, no weapon was brandished nor was there any act of violence or aggression directed at or toward defendant officers. “
