Shut Down #HomanSquare – Chicago_Police Black Site [Update: #Reparations Now! this evening]

Update: marym has been updating #Reparations Now! for the many victims of sociopath Jon Burge’s torture in Chicago jails, including their false confessions leading to convictions under his torture….at about comment #30.
