Chicago attorneys and activists are planning a monument to memorialize the victims of police torture.

The group is asking artists to submit proposals for the monument.

Group members say their goal is "to honor the survivors of torture, their family members, and the African American communities affected by the torture."

I'd be willing to kick in a few bucks for a memorial to individuals beaten by gangs black youths.

How do you suppose AP would like that?

Yet another way to divide the country and keep old hatreds alive.

For decades, scores of suspects — most of them young black men — have claimed Chicago police beaten, kicked and shocked them into giving confessions. Former Chicago police Lt. Jon Burge was convicted last year of lying about torture.

As usual, the white victims were alone and had no groups to encourage them to speak, nor to support them if they did, so the whites took the torture without filings.

Democrats have been racist oppressors of blacks since before the Civil War. Chicago has had nothing but Democrat mayors since at least 1955 when Richard Daley took over. And they say that the city has a history or oppressing blacks?? That’s “unexpected”.

I say we all chip into another monument dedicated to the victims of a failed criminal justice system that doesn’t lock up violent perps...or lets them go as in CA.

The city of corruption, with vacuous officials elected by the very idiots that want to do this monument.

I give a smelly Obama about Chicago...and think it should be used for target practice.

Marxists trying to destroy the respect for authority figures....like they did with patriarchy.....they can’t bully around real men who protect their wives and children.

Military will be next....with DADT repealed, when they kick the Christians out of it....the only reason why our military was the most humane military in the history of mankind. No other military was as consistently humane as the American one because of the underlying Christian philosophy. Washington was adamant at kicking out all homosexuals and having standards of decency and virtue and Godliness.....They are more apt to treat others with dignity—even enemies—when following an ideology which says that every single person is a child of God and has dignity and worth.....drummed into them.

People who practice homosexuality are weak and give into unnatural urges which demean their bodies and God’s design. They deny God. They are more apt to treat others inhumanely because of the habituation of constantly indulging in demeaning acts to their own bodies which degrades their ability to look at others in an elevated, decent way. They see people as objects....as commodities which can be easily disposed of.....it is the same with adulterers and pedophiles. They degrade the sex act which reduces the dignity and worth of human beings—makes them objects to be used and controlled for selfish reasons.

It is not a surprise that atheist/marxist/homosexual/pagan armies have been the most brutal and hideous in the history of man...What the Russian army did in WWII and the socialist/homosexual Nazi Brownshirts did is beyond human comprehension.....and we are trying to adopt their atheist/marxist worldview....the results in adopting that paradigm and dumping the Christian paradigm will have the same result.

The torture I see here is the Demonrats sticking blacks in ghettos for generations in order to breed the type of people they’re planning to honor. Nope, it’s just the Demons and their supporters keeping crap going, dividing races, rewarding thuggery....in other words making true believers out of the ghetto mentality they have carefully cultivated over the years.

No, PB ... they're deadly serious.

We sort'a "play" with our comments regarding "the race card" (I HATE that phrase!) ... but the truth is, dark skins (some are black, some are brown and some are mulatto) WANT an all out war with whites.

Ozero is in office for a reason ... to pack the chute against white people.

We've had this nation long enough (they muse) and it is their 'turn'.

Well, It will not be a hacknied phrase ... over my dead body.

Within ten years, we will have monuments of other sorts for the LGBT community and people will be told to honor and worship their plight.

I suspect the FOP will be a big contributor to this monument.LMAO

Chicago Attorneys and activists are supporting this, Of course the Attorneys are, they expect to get a lot of business out of the increased problems this monument will stir up.

Nothing like ripping the legs out from under the Polce Departent of a major US City that is already awash in violence.
