Wait - He Was Guilty?
A man who says that he was beaten into confessing to a pair of killings by detectives working under disgraced former Chicago Police Cmdr. Jon Burge pleaded guilty to one of the 1990 murders today -- even though he still insists he is innocent.
Flint Taylor, one of Cortez Brown's lawyers, claimed his client only pleaded guilty to murdering Curtis Sims so Brown could start a new life as a free man as soon as possible.
- Assistant Attorney General Vincenzo Chimera presented evidence linking Brown to Sims' murder, specifically pointing to a 9mm Taurus used in the shooting that was purchased by Brown's mother just weeks before.
Or it's a stinking pile of horseshit.
We're going to go with door #2 on this one.
