The [Monday] Papers

"Internal documents from the Chicago police department show that officers used physical force on at least 14 men already in custody at the warehouse known as Homan Square," the Guardian reports.

"Police used punches, knee strikes, elbow strikes, slaps, wrist twists, baton blows and Tasers at Homan Square, according to documents released to the Guardian in the course of its transparency lawsuit about the warehouse. The new information contradicts an official denial about treatment of prisoners at the facility."

The article is the latest in an extensive investigation of nearly two dozen articles that have essentially been dismissed by the local media.

But the Guardian shows no signs of stopping.

"Documents released to the Guardian include the account of a man who died in police custody under questionable circumstances. His family and friends, supported by an independent autopsy that materially differs from the one Cook County performed, believe the police killed him and covered it up. The Guardian will tell his story tomorrow."

The Panama Papers: They're All In It Together
"We hear about how it's people on benefits that are the scourge of our society, but now we finally know it isn't the poor, the disadvantaged, the badly educated, the disabled and the obese that is the drain on our economy, no, it is the rich, the overprivileged, the privately educated."

Prosecutorial Misconduct Rarely Punished
"In each state, researchers examined court rulings from 2004 through 2008 in which judges found that prosecutors had committed violations such as mischaracterizing evidence or suborning perjury. All told, the researchers discovered 660 findings of prosecutorial error or misconduct. Only one prosecutor was disciplined by any oversight authorities."
