US Libertarian Party Urges Media Coverage of Chicago’s ‘Black Site’

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Libertarian party Chairman Nicholas Sarwark told Sputnik on Friday that cases of physical abuse at an unofficial police interrogation site in Chicago should hit the headlines in US media. In February, the Guardian reported about a “domestic black site” in Chicago similar to US Central Intelligence Agency’s interrogation sites overseas. However, the story did not receive extensive coverage in US media. “The allegations of physical abuse should be covered by the media.” Nicholas Sarwark said.

Sarwark stressed that any time American citizens are held without fundamental rights to see an attorney before questioning, “it is an outrage” earlier on Thursday, a protest against the “black site” took place in Chicago. Chicago Alliance Against Racist & Political Pressure community organizer Frank Chapman told Sputnik that US media were not present at the rally and only international media covered the event
