Lawyers describe it as the domestic equivalent to a CIA black site. Their clients “disappeared there” for 12-15 hours before being arraigned. A man died there. Another man left with a head injury. A teenager went missing.

According to a reportpublished in the Guardian, though, this site is being run by the Chicago Police Department out of Homan Square in the city’s west side. And those operating the facility are denying detainees constitutional rights such as access to attorneys and legal counsel.
