It is truly a sad day as the Campaign to End the Death Penalty (“CEDP”)a National base organization announce that formerly incarcerated Chicago Police Torture Victim Eric Caine was arrested earlier during the week on charges of DUI and other driving related matters. Caine spent over two and ahalf decades inside the Illinois Department of Corrections for a crime that he never committed. He was successful in reaching a settlement with the city of Chicago for ten million dollars during the summer of 2013 as the result of torture that occurred to him at the hands of Chicago Police commander Jon Burge and his subordinates. http://www.myfoxorlando.com/story/22922504/jon-burge-city-council-oks-10-million-settlement-for-torture-case-largetst-ye
Caine has remained detained at the Cook County Jail since his Tuesday,December 31, 2013 arrest for driving on revoked and suspended license, DUI, andadditional driving violations. Caine has been arrested on similar charges whichhave him held in violation on a previous bond.
It is without any doubt that Mr. Caine has suffered at the hands of thecriminal justice system. Being released and dealing with the difficult task ofadjusting back to society has perhaps created some psychological and emotionalissue’s in his life causing him to abuse alcoholic substance. The “CEDP”mobilized for the release of Caine and all Chicago Police Torture victims thatremain incarcerated and remain to call for the passage of Ordinance forReparations for the Chicago Police Torture Survivors which would providepsychological and substance abuse treatment for men that are released fromIllinois prisons that were Burge torture victims.
The “CEDP” calls for Caine to be granted Alcohol Rehabilitation andother psychological treatment and not incarceration. A brief news conferencewill be conducted on this matter after the court hearing before Cook Countycircuit court judge Noreen Valeria Love court room 105.
