Chicago Cop Torture Victims Split $19.8 Mil.

January 9, 2008

Last-minute legal roadblocks removed, the City Council today took an historic step toward closing the book on one of the ugliest chapters in the history of the Chicago Police Department.

Four alleged torture victims of former Area 2 Cmdr. Jon Burge and his cohorts will divide a $19.8 million city settlement, under an agreement that aldermen hope will mark the first step toward healing a deep wound in the African-American community.

“This case has really haunted the African-American community for a long time…..” Ald. Anthony Beale (9th) said last month.

The hearing reopened old wounds by airing videotape of Burge victims recounting the now-infamous torture that included pulling plastic bags and typewriter covers over the heads of suspects, beating them with telephone books, handcuffing them to radiators and administering electric shocks to their genitals.

Yet another videotape showed Burge repeatedly taking the Fifth Amendment during a 2004 deposition when asked what he did to those suspects — and whether he tossed the device used to shock suspects into submission over the deck of his private boat and into Lake Michigan.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
