Citizens Committee to Bring Jon Burge to Justice

126 Signatures Goal: 250

The Citizens Committee to Bring Jon Burge to Justice is calling upon elected officials of the City of Chicago to stop using taxpapers money to pay for the pension and defenses of Burge. The Special Prosecutor for the city has documented 192 African American victims of torture, yet Burge continues to receive a pension paid by taxpapers. On May 19, 2006, Judge Biebel issued a decision to release the Special Prosecutors report. For over twenty years lawyers, Amnesty International and victims have fought to bring about justice. The City Council of Chicago will be the recipients of petitions during the next two to three months.

    He should NOT receive any further pension considering this is a benefit reserved for those who fulfill their service obligation of "protecting and serving" the community honorably. His service or lack there of clearly does not meet that obligation. He should not receive taxpayer money for "contibuting to and carrying out abuse and corruption" in the community in which he was suppose to protect. Shame on him and may God have mercy on his merciless soul.

    It's outrageous that taxpayers are paying for this filth to retire. Even though the statute of limitations has run out (why is there a statute of limitations on torture?), there is no reason for taxpayers to pay for his legal fees an cushy retirement. In fact, if he keeps his pension, it should go directly to his victims.
