Come hear Flint Taylor, founding partner of the People's Law Office, discuss his book The Torture Machine. A lawyer for the people, Flint Taylor has spent nearly fifty years fighting for justice, from the courtrooms of Cook County to the US Supreme Court.
The Torture Machine takes the reader from the 1969 murders of Black Panther Party chariman Fred Hampton and Panther Mark Clark--and the historic, thirteen-years of litigation that followed--through the dogged pursuit of commander Jon Burge, the leader of a torture ring within the CPD that used barbaric methods, including electric shock, to elicit false confessions from suspects.
