In Chicago, old habits die hard. In this week’s episode of Wrongful Conviction: False Confessions, renowned attorneys Laura Nirider and Steve Drizin bring us inside one of the worst police abuse scandals in U.S. history.

For decades on the southside of Chicago, a group of white cops turned the interrogation room into a torture chamber for Black men.

Those cops called themselves the Midnight Crew.
