Police brutality exported from Chicago to Guantanamo

Chicago’s darkest chapter in police brutality is perhaps best captured in the career of Police Commander Jon Burge. He gained notoriety for torturing more than 200 criminal suspects between 1972 and 1991. But according to an investigative series of reports by The Guardian, another former Chicago cop allegedly tortured confessions from suspects and brought his methods to Guantanamo Bay Prison. The Guardian’s Spencer Ackerman joins us with the story of former detective and Gitmo operative Richard Zuley. (Flickr/FiDalwood)
