Allegations have swirled for years that officers under the command of Lt. Jon Burge in the Area 2 violent crime unit beat suspects, used electric shocks, played mock Russian roulette and started to smother a suspect with a typewriter cover to elicit confessions. Cook County Chief Criminal Court Judge Paul Biebel put off at least two more weeks the release of the four-year, multimillion-dollar report, saying he wanted to give the Illinois Supreme Court time to act on a former prosecutor's appeal.
