Variant standards on torture

A case being tried right now in Chicago involves a police detective who allegedly tortured a suspect.

Instapundit notes:
I suspect this would be getting a lot more attention if it had happened at Guantanamo instead of in Chicago.

UPDATE: Reader Matthew Heiman writes: “It would get a lot more play if it was Mayor Bush, Deputy Mayor Cheney, and Police Commissioner Rumsfeld. Otherwise, there is no grand dereliction of duty by the political establishment, it’s just bad cops.”

Maybe Terry Karney will read about this and add it to his list of causes. In the mean time, I find it hard to resist the impression that he doesn't care about torture unless he can blame it on George W. Bush.
