One of the people held at the Chicago police’s notorious “black site” at Homan Square claims the officers sexually abused him into agreeing to participate in a drug sting. Security footage from the facility shows the man was indeed held there.
The Guardian has uncovered arrest records revealing that 82% of the more than 3,500 Americans detained at a secret police facility in Chicago over the past decade were black.
About 8.5% of those held at the site were white. According to the 2010 census, Chicago’s population is 32% non-Hispanic white, 33% black, and 29% Hispanic (of which 13.5% identify as racially white).
