Chicago's Abu Ghraib

UN Committee Against Torture Hears Report on How Police Tortured Over 135 African-American Men Inside Chicago Jails

For nearly two decades a part of the city┬╣s jails known as Area 2 was the epicenter for what has been described as the systematic torture of dozens of African-American males by Chicago police officers. In total, more than 135 people say they were subjected to abuse including having guns forced into their mouths, bags places over their heads, and electric shocks inflicted to their genitals. Four men have been released from death row after government investigators concluded torture led to their wrongful convictions.

...the land of the freaks and the home of the depraved.
