A jury has found former Chicago Police Commander Jon Burge guilty on all charges of perjury (one charge) and obstruction of justice (two charges) connected to testimony he made during a 2003 civil trial. Earlier today, John Conroy, who's credited with breaking the torture story years ago while at the Reader, had a lengthy explanation of other evidence - specifically, more accusations of police torture - that the jury was not privy to during the trial.
