Shedding Light on a Clear Case of Discrimination: Former Black Cop Survived 28 Shots From Four White Cops During a Traffic Stop; And Now He's Facing 80-Years

Chicago's own Trayvon Martin-like scandal; black former Chicago cop survived 28 shots from 4 white cops during traffic stop; Howard Morgan now faces 80-year attempted murder sentence; double-jeapordy alleged

The Chicago Sun-Times reports on a racially-charged incident that, in its own way, is as dubious as the Trayvon Martin incident receiving much wider play in the media.
Although the police officers alleged Morgan opened fire when they tried to arrest him, the fusillade of bullets turned Morgan a human sieve and put him in the hospital for seven months.
     He was later charged with four counts of attempted murder; three counts of aggravated battery and one count of aggravated discharge of a firearm at a police officer.
     Morgan languished in jail until an anonymous donor put up the $2 million bond.
     In 2007, a jury acquitted Morgan of aggravated battery and discharging a weapon at a police officer. They deadlocked on attempted murder charges.
    Prosecutors retried the case and in January, and a second jury found Morgan guilty on the attempted murder counts. Morgan’s supporters argue that the verdict subjected him to double jeopardy because he was acquitted in the first trial of discharging a weapon.
Evidence of Chicago PD obstruction of justice and coverup:
  • Howard Morgan's van was crushed and destroyed without notice or cause before any forensic investigation could be done.
  • Howard Morgan was never tested for gun residue to confirm if he even fired a weapon on the morning in question.
  • The State never produced the actual bullet proof vest worn by one of the officers who claimed to have allegedly taken a shot directly into the vest on the morning in question. The State only produced a replica.
