Why Are the Chicago Police Ignoring Arrestee’s Rights in Homan Square?

Police “disappeared” more than 7,000 people at an off-the-books interrogation warehouse in Chicago, nearly twice as many detentions as previously disclosed. From August 2004 to June 2015, nearly 6,000 of those held at the facility were black, which represents more than twice the proportion of the city’s population. But only 68 of those held were allowed access to attorneys or a public notice of their whereabouts, internal police records show.

More Corporate Power Grabs: Make Your Voice Heard on TTIP & CETA

Europe and North America are currently negotiating two trade deals that could turn out to be the biggest corporate power grabs in history — TTIP and CETA.

The Donald Trump Phenomenon: Hidden Meanings

Now some are saying The Donald is running to form a third party and thus hand the election to Hillary. Whereas the preferred alternative would be what? Prince Jeb? There’s a difference between Hillary and Jeb? Who’s kidding who? I approach this from a different angle. Trump is unpredictable. He’s the only unpredictable presidential candidate in recent memory.

Will an American president ever offer a formal apology and will we as citizens stop rationalizing that somehow lives were saved by ultimately killing at least a 1/4 of a million people? Since then, we have had massive military build up, a cold war,
Given the last seven decades of perpetual militarization and nuclear “modernization” in this country, the answer may seem like an obvious no. Still, as a historian, I’ve been trying to dig a little deeper into our lack of national contrition. As I have, Real love often requires the strength to apologize and make amends.
