CHICAGO (CBS) — Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez has written a scathing letter to Gov. Pat Quinn, saying the state board that looks into police torture allegations has acted illegally.
WBBM Newsradio’s Steve Miller reports Alvarez has told the governor the state’s Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission’s failure to include some victims’ families in the review process is reprehensible and illegal.
“There’s no oversight to this commission. I don’t know who they report to, if anybody. I don’t think anybody’s watching or vetting what they’re doing,” she said.
