Jury selection has begun in the trial of former Chicago police commander Jon Burge, and John Conroy will be blogging it over at Vocalo. If you need to catch up on the reporting that helped lead to Burge's indictment on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice (the statute of limitations has run on the torture itself), Conroy's two decades of Reader articles on the subject are available in our police torture archive. Conroy's 2000 book, Unspeakble Acts, Ordinary People: The Dynamics of Torture expands on his Reader and Granta reportage, covering torture in Chicago, Belfast, and Israel.
