Chicago Police Torture victim Melvin Jones has died

We are sad to announce that Chicago Police torture survivor Melvin Jones has died. It was reported to the Campaign to End the Death Penalty through Chicago Community activists Urban Translator Wallace "Gator" Bradley that Jones died in Chicago yesterday (January 21st) morning from a heart attack. Jones have stated since his arrest in 1982 that when taken to area two violent crime unit he was tortured by Jon Burge and his subordinates. Jones complained that he was hit with a gun by Burge and later Burge returned to the room with a cigar homemade device that was later identified as the "Black Box" used to torture men in their genitals and other area's of their bodies to force them to confess to crimes many of the men have since been cleared of not committing. Burge placed a black eye on the entire Chicago police department Bradley said outside of city hall during a May, 2010 rally and news conference on the date Burge trial started in Chicago.
