To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All documents mentioning Jon Burge (1947–2018), former Chicago Police Department detective, whose death was widely reported in the media.

Please see the following news article for context:

"CHICAGO (FOX 32 NEWS) - Former Chicago Police Department commander Jon Burge has died, sources tell FOX 32. He was 70.

Former Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President Dean Angelo said he learned of Burge's death on Wednesday.

Burge was convicted in 2010 for lying about torturing suspects. He was accused of leading the abuse and torture of hundreds of African-American suspects, some by use of a cattle prodder or suffocation by plastic, forcing confessions from dozens." [source: http://www.fox32chicago.com/news/local/notorious-cpd-commander-jon-burge-dead-at-70-source ]

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

J Ader

Ton whom it may concern,

Can someone please provide me with a relatively realistic estimation of how much time it will take to deliver these responsive documents to me once I have decided to pay the fee? Specifically, I am considering paying for the CD option in order to receive these 5,000+ pages.

Thanks in advance,
- J. Ader
