Uncovering Chicago police secrets with the man fighting Homan Square.

Civil rights attorney Flint Taylor explains how the Chicago's Homan Square facility allows police to disappear, intimidate and torture detainees while a clueless local media nitpicks the the international newspaper that broke the story, and a cynical mayor uses evidence of police abuse to make the case for more police abuse.

Last week, Flint's law firm, the People's Law Office, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the City of Chicago and six Chicago police officers.
