Fox News reported:
The city of Chicago has paid out $5.5 million in compensation to dozens of people who claimed to have been victims of police brutality decades ago.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that all but “five or six” of the 57 people whose claims of being abused were deemed credible received $100,000. The others had received previous settlements and saw those amounts deducted from their share.
The checks have been mailed 44 years after the “first known instance” of torture by a police unit led by former commander Jon Burge and known as the “midnight crew.”
