Trial Begins for Ex-Chicago Police Lt. Accused of Torturing More than 100 African American Men

May 24, 2010 Full story: www.democracynow.org 17

A former police commander accused of overseeing the torture of more than 100 African American men goes on trial today in Chicago. Former Lieutenant Jon Burge is accused of lying when he denied in a civil lawsuit that he and other detectives had tortured anyone. He faces a maximum of forty-five years in prison if convicted of all charges. The accusations of torture date back forty years, but Burge has avoided prosecution until now. For nearly two decades, beginning in 1971, Burge was at the epicenter of what has been described as the systematic torture of dozens of black men to coerce confessions. In total, more than 100 people in Chicago say they were subjected to abuse, including having guns forced into their mouths, suffocation with bags placed over their heads, and electric shocks inflicted to their genitals.

More evidence that this country needs police reform even more so than we needed health care reform...the old bigoted system of monsters must be addressed squarely...There are so many criminal police officers in this country...

Jon Burge was simply teaching those lawless, mindless animals that being a thug has consequences -- something their worthless parents never did. Jon Burge is a hero.

If there were more cops like Jon Burge society would be much safer.

And now he can learn that lesson himself.

I sure hope he ends up in one of his own prisons.

It will be when he becomes somebody's bunk bitch in slam. I'll bet they wire up his nuts, shove them up his colon, and apply the juice turned up to eleven. Smokin'!!

Too bad blacks care more about their thugs than the black victims of rampant thug violence in the black community. But I guess it makes sense, given their "blame whitey" mentality.

How many blacks will stop to question why a white police officer, rather than these worthless criminal ghetto trash thugs' parents, had to teach them right from wrong?

I hope he ends up in a cell with one of the men he tortured. It would be poetic justice.

I hope he goes free and serves as an inspiration to more police who are fed up with politically correct society tying their hands in the face of mindless nubian jungle violence.
