Letter to the Editor Chicago Sun-Times reporter Mary Mitchell authored an article that can best be described as nonsense.
Please take a moment to read President Shields letter to the Sun Times editor.
Pres. Shields clearly spoke the truth and what so many in the past were afraid to say.... Thanks Mike!
Howard Morgan Sentencing
Howard Morgan, who has been convicted of four counts of Attempted Murder of a Police Officer when he opened fire on Officers in 2005, is scheduled to be sentenced on Thursday, April 5, 2012. Sentencing will take place at 26th & California in the courtroom of the Honorable Judge Crane, Room 600 at 10:00am.
Chicago Sun-Times reporter Mary Mitchell has again attempted to portray this as an issue of race when this is nothing more than an issue of criminal behavior. Mr. Morgan had his day in court, in front of a jury of his peers, and was subsequently found guilty. Ms. Mitchell incorrectly listed the sentencing time as 8:00am. Could this be an attempt to keep Chicago Police Officers out of the courtroom and flood it with advocates for Morgan?
We urge all members to make every attempt to arrive early at this sentencing to ensure themselves a place in the courtroom.
