The Guardian's bombshell about a secretive "black site" holding facility in Chicago where suspects are allegedly shackled, beaten and held for long periods of time without access to their lawyers, immediately sparked cries of alarm.
The practices reportedly taking place at the Chicago Police Department's Homan Square could be another sign that some of the same techniques used overseas in the War on Terror have crept into domestic policing practices.
The Guardian's investigation uncovered evidence of:
Keeping arrestees out of official booking databases.
Beating by police, resulting in head wounds.
Shackling for prolonged periods.
Denying attorneys access to the “secure” facility.
Holding people without legal counsel for between 12 and 24 hours, including people as young as 15.
At least one man was pronounced dead after he was found unresponsive inside an interview room at Homan Square.
NATO protester Brian Jacob Church told the Guardian that the facility was like a "domestic black site," referencing the CIA's network of secret prisons used to interrogate terror suspects overseas.

Young is a fascinating case of phenom-turned-bust-turned-retiree in the span of just eight years.
When he announced his retirement, Young sounded pretty grounded in the decision.
Pablo Picasso’s “La Coiffeuse” vanished years ago, stolen from a storage room in Paris. The cubist painting, owned by the French government and assigned to the collections of the Musée National d’Art Moderne, wasn’t seen again until it surfaced recently in Newark, after smugglers apparently tried to ship it to the United States.
