Gitmo on Lake Michigan: Chicago PD’s “black site” is a glaring crime against the Bill of Rights

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.

  1. I have heard nary a word about this on NPR. In fact, I don’t recall hearing anything and I listen everyday for 2 to 3 hours (I’ve been vaccinated so as to avoid infection). The only radio show I heard it on was Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now! On the net it was here, CounterPunch, and WSWS. A few years back I’d read about this detention center in Chicago (on this site and few others) where anti-NATO protesters had been held captive although at the time it was not being called a “black site”.

    The police can do anything to you and get away with it.
