Clements was innocent and there was indeed a big torture scandal involving Chicago cops led by Jon Burge.
BUT - the point of this story is to work in some sort of praise for Ayer’s wife, the bomber-murderer Bernadine Dhorn, for connecting the victim with a law firm.
Since she and Ayers helped plan the recent flotilla attack on Israel, it looks like some positive spin is being fronted for them by the drooling dog media.
I think if this were done into word (MS Word that is) it would be 6-7 pages and Dohrn is mentioned for a paragraph about 70% of the way in, and you think the point of the story is to praise her? Really?
