Recorded August 8, 2015.
Lady Law never stands so tall as when she stands on someone's
hand. Horrifically tortured by Chicago Police officer Jon
Burge and his cronies into confessing a crime he did not commit,
Darrell Cannon spent 24 years in prison, much of it in
solitary at a super-max facility, before the courts acknowledged
the error. Bill Barclay interviews Darrell Cannon about how the
conviction was overturned, the campaign for reparations for survivors
of Chicago Police torture, and, most especially, the terms of
the reparations ordinance passed by the Chicago City Council
and the consequences for policing in Chicago.
