CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—December 9, 2015. Chicago police crime survivors and victims’ family members will gather this Thursday to demand the investigation and criminal prosecution of killer cops and torturers in the Chicago Police Department, along with their co-conspirators throughout city government. They will also demand the immediate closure of the notorious and illegal CPD detention and torture center at Homan Square.
On Thursday, December 10th, at 3:30pm police torture survivors, their families, and the families of police murder victims will gather outside 219 S. Dearborn in advance of their 4:00 meeting with Paul Borowitz, representative of U.S. Attorney Zachary Fardon, of the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division.
At 3:45 they will head inside for their meeting with Mr. Borowitz, and submit their letters of complaint. A letter from the CAARPR will accompany their complaints, and will spell out the following demands:
Immediately launch a full investigation and criminal prosecution of those responsible for conspiracy against rights, as proscribed by U. S. C. Title 18 Section 241 in the City of Chicago and the Chicago Police Department.
Immediately launch a full investigation and criminal prosecution of all individuals who have deprived people in Chicago of their Constitutional rights under color of law, as proscribed by U. S. C. Title 18 Section 242.
Immediately move for an order in U. S. District Court permanently closing the Chicago Police torture center at Homan Ave. and Fillmore St. known as “Homan Square.”
Survivors and family members will then join the protest at 5:00pm in Federal Plaza, Chicago residents are rallying in support of these demands, as well as the enactment of CPAC, an all-elected, all-civilian police accountability council.
