Citizens Committee to Bring Jon Burge to Justice
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.
