Every government that ever existed ultimately came for all property, all freedom, all money, and to kill all who resist. The average person in the world is several times more likely to be killed by his own government than by any other source.

This is why governments are always the greatest source of danger for most of the world’s peoples.

Now there are details regarding the Chicago Police Department’s secret torture facility.

At least 3,500 Americans have been detained inside the Chicago police warehouse known as Homan Square over a decade.

82% were black.

Only three received documented visits from an attorney.

The purpose of the facility is apparently to force suspects to incriminate themselves before their arrests appeared in a booking system by which their families and attorneys might find them.

The Guardian reported stories of people being shackled and held for hours or even days, all without legal access.

A 42-year-old civil rights activist says he was abducted by masked officers, shackled, held on false charges and “with no food, no water, no access to the outside world” at the behest of “covert operations.” One young man was held at the warehouse for 14 hours without any public listing of his whereabouts.
