Chicago Cops Have “Disappeared” More than 7,000 People at Secret Interrogation Warehouse

A lawsuit filed on behalf of the Guardian revealed a mind-blowingly high number of people who were effectively ‘disappeared’ at the secret warehouse prison used by Chicago cops.

As Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel blames the “YouTube Effect” for the animosity towards police, more than 7,000 people were secretly detained and held without due process in his town. Apparently, none of the victims, their friends, or their family members resent police for holding their loved ones without due process.

The Guardian reports:

According to an analysis of data disclosed to the Guardian in late September, police allowed lawyers access to Homan Square for only 0.94% of the 7,185 arrests logged over nearly 11 years. That percentage aligns with Chicago police’s broader practice of providing minimal access to attorneys during the crucial early interrogation stage, when an arrestee’s constitutional rights against self-incrimination are most vulnerable.

But Homan Square is unlike Chicago police precinct houses, according to lawyers who described a “find-your-client game” and experts who reviewed data from the latest tranche of arrestee records obtained by the Guardian.

“Not much shakes me in this business – baby murder, sex assault, I’ve done it all,” said David Gaeger, an attorney whose client was taken to Homan Square in 2011 after being arrested for marijuana. “That place was and is scary. It’s a scary place. There’s nothing about it that resembles a police station. It comes from a Bond movie or something.”

Internal police records obtained by the Guardian show that from August 2004 to June 2015, nearly 6,000 of those held in Homan Square were black. This number represents more the two times the proportion of the city’s population.

Of those 6,000 held, only 68 people were allowed access to attorneys or had their whereabouts released publicly.

The vast majority of those held in Homan Square were done so under entirely illegal circumstances — and no one is being held accountable for it.

The damning information released by the Guardian on Monday paints an ominous picture of the lengths cops will go to enforce the war on drugs. Most of those illegally held in this paramilitary prison were done so under the guise of the drug war. According to their report:

The narcotics, vice and anti-gang units operating out of Homan Square, on Chicago’s west side, take arrestees to the nondescript warehouse from all over the city: police data obtained by the Guardian and mapped against the city grid show that 53% of disclosed arrestees come from more than 2.5 miles away from the warehouse. No contemporaneous public record of someone’s presence at Homan Square is known to exist.

Nor are any booking records generated at Homan Square, as confirmed by a sworn deposition of a police researcher in late September, further preventing relatives or attorneys from finding someone taken there.

“The reality is, no one knows where that person is at Homan Square,” said Craig Futterman, a professor at the University of Chicago Law School who studies policing. “They’re disappeared at that point.”

After being held against their will, without due process, and not knowing if they were going to make it out alive, more the 5,000 of those held at Homan Square were charged with drug possession only; heroin accounted for 35.4% of those, with marijuana next at 22.3%.

The Free Thought Project has interviewed some of those held in this frightening place. Their experiences are shocking. 

The fact that police can operate a secret prison, which has now admitted that it detains people without due process and is known for torturing many of its victims, should be a wake-up call to those unaware of the nightmarish police state being constructed around them.

How many other Homan Squares currently exist in America? If one can exist, it is certainly feasible to suspect more than one. Please share this article with your friends and family to expose these rights violating tyrants.

    Places like this are the seed from which a military dictatorship will grow. I’m sure that this isn’t the only place where things like this happen. There are likely secret interrogation centres in many big cities. And they operate under the guise of the war on drugs and the war on terrorism. People think that the war on terrorism only targets foreign terrorists. But these places were never intended for anyone but American citizens.
    Unless there is some serious pushback against this sort of thing, this will become a lot more widespread. Eventually it will be commonplace for the police to operate like this. And the type of people who are brought to these places will go from drug dealers and common criminals to suspected “terrorists” (Christians, patriots, constitutionalists, and anti-government types). And they will use these places to rid the country of dissidents and anyone who opposes the status quo. These places will start popping up in places where there are a lot of people who don’t like the government and people are strong supporters of the 2nd amendment and freedom. And the people who run these places will be the architects of their own demise. When they destroy our freedom, they will be destroying their own freedom with it.
    And the constitution won’t help to stop this either. Because of the unconstitutional laws passed by congress and signed by Obama, like the NDAA, this has become “legal”. So good luck trying to get rid of them. We have likely passed the point of no return. The slippery slope is well greased and we are sliding down at a quick pace. By the time people really catch on to this, there will be worse things going on. And rather than getting ahead of this, we are playing a losing game of catch up.
