Please discuss this issue on the article's talk page.Jon Graham Burge (born December 20, 1947) is a convicted felon and former Chicago Police Department detective and commander who gained notoriety for torturing more than 200 criminal suspects between 19 in order to force confessions.A .8 million settlement was reached in December 2007, with the "city defendants." Cases against Cook County and the other current/former county prosecutors continued as of July 2008.In October 2008, the United States Attorney for Northern Illinois, Patrick Fitzgerald, had Burge arrested on charges of obstruction of justice and perjury in relation to testimony in a 1989 civil suit against him for damages for alleged torture.
Burge described his military police service as time spent escorting convoys, providing security for forward support bases, supervising security for the divisional central base camp in Dong Tam, and serving a tour as a provost marshal investigator.
In 2002, a special prosecutor began investigating the accusations.
The four-year review, which cost million, was concluded in 2006.
In 2009 the state passed a law authorizing the Illinois Torture Inquiry Relief Commission, to investigate cases related to convictions of people claiming to have been tortured by Burge and his officers and given coerced confessions, to see if there was evidence for judicial review and relief. Seventeen cases have been referred to the circuit court and three men freed by April 2016.
Another 130 similar cases of torture by Chicago police have been claimed, beyond the scope of Burge and his cohort.
Following an internal investigation, Burge was suspended from the Chicago Police Department in 1991 and fired in 1993 after the Police Department Review Board ruled that he had used torture against suspects.
