Police torture reparations on Chicago City Council agenda
October 16, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The Chicago City Council meets Wednesday about a new proposed ordinance apologizing and giving reparations to victims of Chicago police torture.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently apologized and acknowledged the torture committed by disgraced former police Cmdr. Jon Burge and officers under his command.
The proposed ordinance calls for setting aside $20 million for victims of police torture. That is the same amount of money the city spent defending police torture cases.
