Reading through some of the responses to the Chicago Sun-Times' front-page story: "Gang Members: Top Cop Tricked Us." , it is easy to see how former police commander Jon Burge got away with torturing suspects.

Some people are so turned off by gangs, they don't think gang members have any rights. But you can't arrest a gang-member for being in a gang, just like you can't arrest someone who is a skin-head for being in a hate group.
