What I find very telling is the fact that the very people who want former Area 2 Homicide Detective Jon Burge tortured, murdered and then convicted are the very same people who want Israel wiped from the face of the earth.
The doctrinaire Progressive can not accept the fact that Israel is fighting for its life by blocking, apprehending and questioning murderous thugs and that Detectives of Area 2 were tasked with apprehending and questioning murderous thugs.
The corporate media ( editorial boards and the iconic columnists like Carol Marin) take only one news feed and that is the Progressive Doctrinaire - G. Flint Taylor tells out-of-work columnist John Conroy what to write and that sets the police torture gold standard. Burge must be mutilated, tried and convicted for starters because The Peoples Law Office, Jon Loevy, The Northwestern Buzz Cut Commie Lawsuit Lotto League, WTTW, WBEZ* and Medill Magic Conviction Deconstruction Company say so. Burge tortured Denzel Washington! Free Mumia!
Likewise, the hand-wringers want Israel wiped from the face of the earth, because it is there.
Good people can disagree. The Progressive tells everyone to shut-up and obey. People don't, thank God.
What would constitute justice in this case? We explore the impact of the Burge case – from the status of those wrongfully convicted to the breach of trust between police and the communities they are upheld to serve and protect. We ask you to weigh in.
