‘Between 1972 and 1991, approximately 125 African American suspects were tortured by police officers in Chicago. […] Beyond these verified instances, in 2003 journalists documented other episodes of torture before and after these dates, and elsewhere in the city, placing the total number of survivors of police torture in Chicago at roughly two hundred.’
