Burge Trial - Peoples Law Office Reenactment of Burge Torture

"He said he wasn't abused. He said he never got electro-shocked," Shaw said, dressed in a bright orange prison jumpsuit, his arm and leg irons clanking occasionally as he shifted in his chair. "He said it was all a lie. He said there were all kinds of attorneys on it, and there were others that were dying to get on the case. He talked about movie deals, book deals. At the time, I thought it was far-fetched."

Lawyers seeking to benefit financially from a slam dunk accusation of systemic racist police torture? Far-fetched? Not really.

As compelling as most of John Conroy's narratives ( chock filled with Burge rumors and hearsay, as well as the mystery Black Box)and every mobilized coalition's thoughtful consideration of the chain of events of these last thirty years in the Burge Saga it might be, I say it might be, useful to take a serious look how seriously G.Flint Taylor's Peoples Law Office takes Jon Burge and Justice.

Far-fetched? Not really.
