Chicago PD, you're doing it wrong.

Chicago Police Department maintains "black site" for illegal detention and torture - Boing Boing: "Homan Square is the Chicago Police Department's "secure site" where people as young as 15 are detained without charge and without access to counsel, subject to beatings that result in head wounds, and, in one case, death. People detained in Homan Square are not listed in any database and can't be located by lawyers or family members. At least one notorious Gitmo torturer, Richard Zuley, formerly worked at Homan Square for the Chicago PD. The guards who stand at the doors to Homan Square refuse to identify themselves. Although most of those detained and abused at Homan Square are poor people, mostly of color, it has also been used for political detention of protesters."
