Wrongfully Convicted Cop Freed

From John Kass and the Chicago Tribune:
What bothers the Mettes—and just about every other cop—is that there were no protests on Mike's behalf. Liberal university professors didn't write angry op-ed pieces demanding justice. The crowd that fights wrongful convictions wasn't interested, either, perhaps because Mike wasn't some violent gangbanger with a rap sheet as long as his leg.

He didn't have a rap sheet. Mike was a good cop, and he was ignored.

But soon, he'll be coming home.

The whole story is here.
