War Declared Against Chicago PD Over Secret Jail

Chicago, IL (TFC) – While most of the United States is busy trying to grasp the fact that the United States has a secret jail where American citizens are beat and denied access to fundamental rights, groups across the country are coordinating a way to strike back against the rogue police department.

An Anonymous-affiliated activist said:

“This is the moment when Americans have to decide whether they want to live in a police state or if they are willing to fight back against oppression.”

The battle started when The Guardian disclosed its investigation into the Chicago Police Department’s secret facility that is located inside a warehouse on Chicago’s west side.

What happened at the facility? American detainees as young as 15 were beat, denied access to attorneys, kept out of booking databases so families couldn’t locate them, and they were shackled for extended periods of time in uncomfortable positions. Sounds like something that would happen at Guantanamo or Abu Ghraib. Care to guess why? Detective Richard Zuley was employed at the Guantanamo torture facility as a torturer. Evidence is currently being reviewed in his cases due to alleged civil rights violations.

At least one person died in Chicago’s torture facility.

Homan Square, as the facility is known, apparently houses the vehicles obtained from the Department of Defense’s 1033 (the program designed to militarize the nation’s police departments) alongside the interrogation cells and cages.

The Anonymous activist said:

“Americans have been in denial of the police state. Nobody can deny that American teens do not deserve to be beat or tortured in order to obtain faulty confessions.”

Flint Taylor, a Civil rights attorney, told the Guardian:

“The Homan Square revelation seems to me to be an institutionalization of the practice that dates back more than 40 years of violating a suspect or witness’ rights to a lawyer and not to be physically or otherwise coerced into giving a statement.”

Social media is alive with calls for protest and violence against Chicago PD. One quote, which will not be attributed due to the government’s habit of arresting people for social media comments, read:

“We need to burn that motherfucking building to the ground.”

Other citizens called for cutting off funding to the Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police.

The Fifth Column has an editorial policy against advocating violence of any kind, but the building itself should certainly be destroyed by civil authorities after every officer that ever brought someone to the facility is incarcerated.

This is not a case where the American people can turn a blind eye. One man, John Hubbard, was taken to the facility for some unknown reason. He never breathed free air again. There is no known reason for him to ever have been in police custody. The Cook County medical examiner has no record stating a cause of death. The 44-year-old simply disappeared from his family and friends and turned up dead at the hands of police.

Chicago PD’s Black Site is not concerned with terrorism. It’s used to intimidate protesters, suspects of every kind, and uncooperative witnesses. The anti-gang and anti-drug task forces use the building. It could be your 15-year-old that is taken to a facility like this in your community and beaten into confessing over a dime bag of pot.

If this facility is allowed to remain or the police officers that used it are not sent to prison, facilities like this will spring up all over the country. This is the precipice of the police state. This is what you have been warned about. This is something so atrocious that Americans cannot simply stick their heads in the sand. This is the moment to proclaim in one voice that this will not be tolerated.

The nation’s police rape, murder, torture, and violate the inalienable rights of the people at will without penalty. How can we say we live in anything other than a police state?
