But there has been some justice.
On June 28, 2010, Burge was found guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice for lying about the torture ring that he led as part of the CPD from 1972 to 1991. Burge was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison. Burge and his henchmen could not be held criminally or civilly responsible for their crimes of torture because the statute of limitations had run out. Under Burge, 120 people, primarily Black, were tortured.
