Chicago taxpayers will pay out another $ 10 million dollars for a police torture case linked to Jon Burge.

Eric Caine spent 25 years in prison for a double murder he didn’t commit after police allegedly beat a confession out of him.

Police abuse cases tied to Burge have now cost Chicago $70 million dollars.

He is in prison for lying about the torture, and is still collecting his police pension.
