Landmark Reparations Package Announced for Victims of Chicago Police Torture Regime

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Chicago's Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel announced Tuesday a landmark reparations package for the scores of victims of former Chicago police commander Jon Burge who oversaw a nearly two-decade regime of torturing suspects into confessions.

The proposal, reached between city officials and groups representing the victims and other stakeholders, will be submitted for approval to the Chicago City Council on Wednesday.

I often write about the beauty of economical expression. Kaba's summation "It is a modicum of redress" is a example of that beauty.

Burge should never have been released from prison and his pension should be put into the fund for his victims.
