It’s becoming more and more clear that our nation is barreling towards a police state, but few people seem to realize that many aspects of a totalitarian state are already in place.
Take this nondescript warehouse, known as Homan Square, in Chicago. Reports coming from Obama’s old stomping grounds allege that this warehouse operates as a black ops interrogation center where police can detain people without cause, without proper procedure (including notation of the arrest in official databases), and beatings by police.
Chicago police officials acknowledge that the site exists, and civil rights activists are up in arms over having a gestapo-type facility in their city that has a history of detaining people, including juveniles, without charges and at least one death in the last few years.
Tracy Siska of the Chicago Justice Project said:
“Facilities like Guantanamo Bay cause military interrogation practices to seep into domestic law enforcement, either with weaponry like with the militarization of police, or interrogation practices. That’s how we ended up with a black site in Chicago.”
It’s this kind of disturbing trend in government and law enforcement that is causing people to take sensible action to be prepared to disappear when a collapse comes.
