The Case of Howard Morgan: Black policeman shot 28 times by four White Chicago cops and lived






This is crazy! I was informed about this case by Brother Kareem Ali of Memphis who has been supporting the family from the start. How do you get shot 28 times and then end up on trial? According to the YouTube description "Officer Howard Morgan was shot 28 times by four white Chicago District 10 police officers at 19th and Lawndale, Chicago, IL on February 21, 2005. He was accused of going the wrong way on a one-way street. He was charged with 4 counts of first degree attempt murder and three counts of aggravated battery and one count of aggravated discharge of a firearm. Officer Morgan was shackled to his hospital bed for over 6 months. He was taken to Cook County Corrections where he slept on the floor until he was released on a two million dollar bond."

"After his first trial he was found not guilty for firing his weapon and two counts of aggravated battery. Now the court is attempting to RETRY Officer Morgan AGAIN. But how can it be attempted murder if he is found NOT GUILTY for firing HIS GUN? The DOUBLE JEOPARDY LAW APPLIES! The story is trying to be hid from the public eye! We must get the word out!!! Help me STOP this INJUSTICE NOW because if it happen to him it can be easily happen to you!"

Watch the video, repost it and if you're in the Chicago area reach out to this family and show your support.

    Why was this case being swept under the radar? Why has it been kept quiet for so long? 2005 and now this is 2012, this is ludicrous! Today, 2/18/12 is the very first time I even heard of the case. For this to even occur in Alderman Danny Davis ward is not acceptible. He needa to lose his ward for this because as a leader, he has not attempted to at least inform people. I truly feel it's his time to step down after THIS.
    I'm sorry but I have to state this. anyone who know of things which occur such as this sort of haneous crime, do not belong in such a seat.

  3. 28 times? other news organizations have said only 25 times. where did the extra 3 bullets come from? and why wouldn't he be charged? he shot to DEATH 4 officers. Isnt that considered murder?

  4. Huh? Anonymous posters, are you even paying attention? He was shot 28 times, tried and acquitted of aggravated battery and discharge of a firearm. There was no traces of gunshot residue on him which indicated he never fired a weapon. He was shot 28 times and the police said he was shooting at them. He obviously wasn't.

  5. What a sick story... 28 times, gee, that's crazy. But just as Chicago citizen west side, I wonder why this story is still under the spotlights... I mean, there are dozens of similar stories happen every day, why is this one so special?
