Demand Pardons for all Police Torture Survivors

Chicago Illinois is known as the “Police Torture Capital” of the United States. Illinois is the only state in the U. S. that has set up an official state Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission. Young people, almost all Black or Latinx, have been systematically tortured by police and been forced to falsely confess to crimes they did not commit. Most of the victims were children when they were tortured. Many are serving life sentences in prison without possibility of parole.

Governor Pritzker: you have the power to right this wrong with the stroke of your pen. Pardon all survivors of police torture! Free them all now!

    Governor Pritzker, innocent people are incarcerated because Jon Burge and detectives in his command tortured them into falsely confessing. Torture is wrong. A confession resulting from torture is invalid. I add my voice to this petition and implore you to pardon all survivors of police torture.
