"Thousands" Detained

  • At least 3,500 Americans have been detained inside a Chicago police warehouse described by some of its arrestees as a secretive interrogation facility, newly uncovered records reveal.

    Of the thousands held in the facility known as Homan Square over a decade, 82% were black. Only three received documented visits from an attorney, according to a cache of documents obtained when the Guardian sued the police.

    Despite repeated denials from the Chicago police department that the warehouse is a secretive, off-the-books anomaly, the Homan Square files begin to show how the city’s most vulnerable people get lost in its criminal justice system.
And of the supposed "thousands" held there, most were there for the 90 minutes it took to process their arrest reports and then they were brought to Central Detention, the 011 District or Guantanamo Bay for for "enhanced" interrogation techniques taught to a select group of coppers by a secret order of monks imported from the darkest corners of the ancient Mongolian Empire.

What? ....oh. Ok, we're being told that that last part has been discontinued and wiped from the memory banks and all documentation will be destroyed from this point forward.

The fantasy that this piece is is laughable and the cast of clowns includes such stalwarts as Craig Futterman and Flint Taylor. Lorenzo Davis even makes an appearance, a guy who always seemed to have corruption following in his wake, but no he's feeding the Guardian stories so all must have been forgiven...or buried too deeply.

A few amusing parts:
  • Unusually for a police facility, people are taken to Homan Square from every corner of Chicago. Most arrests, however, take place in the predominantly black West Side and South Side. 54% of arrests took place within 2.5 miles of Homan Square.

    Um, the "neighborhood" is nearly 100% black and pretty much the biggest open-air drug market in existence - or doesn't anyone there recall the big sweep just last month?
  • [two arrestees] were told they were being taken for processing at police headquarters, where they were charged with possession. Neither served time for the misdemeanor.

    Really? Because Headquarters doesn't even have a holding room, let alone a lockup or a print machine, and you certainly aren't going to find anyone at Headquarters to write a Court Transmittal or an I-bond. 
  • Most of their sources are (A) anonymous and (B) pled guilty to various charges involving drugs and guns. Some of the stories are obviously made up stories based on TV shows and assorted People Law Office conspiracies.
This is a joke of an article meant to inflame the rhetorical war on the police and further a leftist agenda hamstringing any sort of law enforcement action in the communities that need it most.

Isn't this the same place where the black helicopters take off and land, and where they have that "secret area" where the alien autopsies are conducted? Stupid-ass, clueless "reporters" who know nothing about what they speak.

Thousands of detainees? There's barely anywhere to park, much less bring in thousands of detainees.

Newsflash: you don't secretly stash thousands of arrestees in a building that dozens of citizens go to on a daily basis to retrieve their recovered property.

All this hoo-ha over a handful of (now-convicted)terrorists being secured in this location three years ago. Ridiculous.

I am waiting for the FOX NEWS Geraldo Rivera Special, "Inside the Holman Square Police Safe."

After a two hour build-up, where talk about the beatings and tortures supposedly administered in the basement, and random stories of missing people. They finally open the safe, only to find it is empty except for Daley's Half Billion Dollar I.O.U. to the CPD Pension Plan.

I'm a west side resident, born and raised and (sometimes) happily still reside in North Lawndale. As a North Lawndale Native for over 34 years I of course have acquaintances who some times get arrested, know of people who know of people who always get arrested, and even my own family members. Never in my history on Earth have I heard ANYONE talk about this. And citizens would of course talk about this. Sounds like something is being over exaggerated, and that's my god honest truth.

Some of those detainees were taken and forced into steel Tardus-like boxes on wheels that their captors referred to as "wagons" or "squadrols".

The doors were slammed shut and the subjects inside inhaled foul odors, while the steel box rattles and shook. Then by some mysterious means of time and space teleportation they arrived at the Black Site.

I worked at Homan. The only thing different from locking people up there as opposed to anywhere else is that you had room and some peace and quiet to do interviews. We got people out of there as fast as possible because if you went to your office to type up the paperwork, every five minutes you'd get a call that your prisoner had to go to the bathroom...either that or we had to have someone babysit them. They had it better at Homan than any district. We'd spend our own money to make McDonald's runs, spend our own money buying them drinks and snacks from the vending machines. Without a doubt, our arrestees got more food, drink and bathroom trips than we did.

Everything in the article is true. I was once locked up in the secret prison at Harrison, shortly after being abducted by a UFO. Which would explain why I was running down the street naked and arrested in the first place, and may I add that I was not anally probed while on the space ship or in prison. Making me the first person to escape a spaceship and Prison unscathed.

The Guardian:

"While the police data is incomplete, the disclosures thus far suggest an intensification of Homan Square usage under Emanuel. Approximately 70% of the Homan Square detentions the Chicago police acknowledge thus far have occurred under the current mayor. Emanuel’s current police superintendent, Garry McCarthy, attended a meeting on violence and policing in Washington on Monday."

Is that why they say crime is down ? Mystery solved !

1)Anyone who is familiar with The Guardian knows it's a pro-Communist rag.
2)Anyone familiar with life under a Communist regime knows that blacks are treated like dirt. The human rights report on Cuba from our own left-leaning State Department reveals that in Cuba, the government allots fewer food rations to blacks, they warehouse them in already decrepit ghettoes and they are given only menial work. The few blacks who lived in the Soviet Union were used as propaganda tools, but otherwise also were treated like trash. And we need not mention the black-on-black crimes against humanity that regularly take place in leftist African nations.

FOI Investigation…
The Homan location was initially built on a 41.6 acre site in 1906. While it is unclear which administration could have ordered the present day clandestine xenophobic operations (Richard J. Daley 1955-1976, Michael Anthony Bilandic 1976-1979) 16 acres was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1978 by the Chicago City Council. In an apparent attempt to maintain a surreptitious classification of the site and its proceedings, the site was always referred to in secret terms, often in descriptive, yet audacious acronyms with exclusive racist money backers* providing the funding to avoid city budget exposure.
This covert minority bigoted blame implementation location was referred to in certain sophisticated underground culture merely as, **‘SRAES.” Finally, after exhausting an international search for Polish survivors from the Bletchley Park enigma code-breakers from 1940, did the Guardian crack the key of the ellipsis. It stood for "Secret Racist Accusatory Enforcement Site". There, false accusations and Trump*-ed up charges were routinely placed vs. individuals, mostly blacks from the 2.5 square mile perimeter. Until the Guardian brought this report to the credulous media, the aforementioned remained a mystery.
And now you know, the rest of the story… Goooood Day!

**"SRAES" spelled backwards is… SEARS.
