Still Trying for Shortshanks
- A federal judge has ruled that a lawsuit can go forward accusing former Mayor Richard Daley of ignoring evidence that white Chicago police detectives working under disgraced former police Cmdr. Jon Burge tortured dozens of black suspects into murder confessions.
U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve's ruling sets the stage once again for Daley to potentially be forced to give sworn testimony about what he knew of the painful legacy of police torture that first came to light when Daley was Cook County state's attorney and later exploded during his more than two decades as mayor.
"potentially be forced" means Rahm is readying the taxpayer checkbook once again instead of actually contesting one of these cases that would demonstrate what a shaky foundation of half-truth and bullshit so much of this is built on.
