BURGE CASE | 'Riddled with omissions, half-truths'
That's the conclusion legal and nonprofit groups make -- in a report to be released Tuesday -- about a special prosecutor's probe of alleged police torture under former Chicago Police Cmdr. Jon Burge.
The report -- by a coalition that includes Northwestern University's Center On Wrongful Convictions, Amnesty International and lawyers representing the alleged torture victims in civil suits against the city
Without even reading this report you know where it is heading. Considering who is producing it.
"The record strongly suggests that the Special Prosecutors' investigation and resultant report, which cost the taxpayers of Cook County $7 million, were driven, at least in part, by pro-law-enforcement bias and conflict of interest, were riddled with omissions, inconsistencies, half-truths and misrepresentations, and reflect shoddy investigation and questionable prosecutorial tactics and strategies," the report concludes.
It is almost laughable that this group has the audacity to accuse anyone of a bias!
