Gitmo2Chicago2Burge2Vietnam: How police abuse in Chicago extends way beyond Homan Square.


You dehumanize Vietnamese, you dehumanize black people on the south side of Chicago. You dehumanize people in prisons in Pennsylvania, you dehumanize people in Abu Ghraib. That concept is almost universal in terms of what you see going back and forth with regard to local law enforcement in this county and sites such as Guantanamo and Vietnam.

Attorney Flint Taylor connects the Homan Square ‘black site’ story to a larger history of secrecy, violence and abuse that spans decades, continents and wars.

Flint was quoted in the much talked-about, Spencer Ackerman article The disappeared: Chicago police detain Americans at abuse-laden ‘black site’ at the Guardian.
