That's my title; not The Guardian's - here is the official husher - The disappeared: Chicago police detain Americans at abuse-laden 'black site'
The Guardian is the now the tin-foil hat, black ops abounding, paranoia aggregate International. If you think you have it rough, go to the Guardian and find something to blame for your personal disappointments and pet peeves. It is the paper that turned a traitorous US Army PFC into Ms. Chelsea Manning in a matter of weeks.
Now, two disgraced bands of bothers, The Peoples Law Office and the Northwestern Wrongful Conviction crowd are begging "Gimme Shelter" in a warm myth. A Chicago Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and a Chicago Police Officer/Author have pulled the wool from the wolves who made millions of dollars undermining law enforcement and justice - The Peoples Law Office and Northwestern University Wrongful Convictions and Innocence Project helped send an innocent man to jail for decades. Alstory Simon is now free thanks to William Crawford a retired journalist and Martin Preib a Chicago Police Officer and author of Crooked City. and Chicago turns its nostrils away from the likes of Northwestern and People Law.
That said, G. Flint Taylor, the king of police misconduct lawsuits and his lesser-lights went to Glenn Greenwald, it seems, and offered another howler of police brutality yarn. The building is called Homan Square and it serves as a motor pool facility for CPD as well as a forensics resource building. G. Flint and the Nato 3 whistleblowers claim it is a black site.
Chicago civil-rights attorney Flint Taylor said Homan Square represented a routinization of a notorious practice in local police work that violates the fifth and sixth amendments of the constitution.
“This Homan Square revelation seems to me to be an institutionalization of the practice that dates back more than 40 years,” Taylor said, “of violating a suspect or witness’ rights to a lawyer and not to be physically or otherwise coerced into giving a statement.”
Routinization? Routinizized? Goofs love to coin neologisms. G. Flint, you wordsmithy!
Simple as this might seem, here is all you need to know and cry nonsense to G. Flint's Whopper -
The lead defense attorney for the NATO 3 was the counsel for the damned, a true constitutionalist criminal defense lawyer who managed to get the beer making bomb tossers charged with acts of stupidity and not acts of terrorism. People Law Office crowded the news conference, but did little else for the NATO 3.
Not WORD ONE from the lead attorney.
This story is as made up as 99% of the Burge Mythology happens to be.
Nice try, G. Flint.
