I might have it wrong, and I know that term bothers you, however Clarence Darrow was charged with some type of wworkers rights riot offense or attempt murder conspiracy in Appleton, Wisconsin. He has someone else defend him. Checking The Defense Never Rests now.

I believe Clarence Darrow was the one doing the defending, but, whatever, maybe someone can look up the Reilly criminal case and see if he actually "got a pass." In any event, Oak Park lost the services of a good cop, who appears to have been treated unfairly, as so many police officers have by the current management.

When you put the public good in the hands of venture capitalists and real estate executives, and when elected officials sell out to people like that, financial catastrophe for the community is inevitable. But thanks to the current Board's complete acquiescence with the financial sector any semblance doing things for the common good will go right out the window.

If only Tyler Reilly had posted a swastika on his iPhone, then he would be in trouble. Hurting a cop while trying to steal things, gets a free pass.

Sad to know that you dies Brian. Your Coach loves you!

Because he probably had no working knowledge of the language or no working knowledge of the short term and long term aspects of the case. Clarence Darrow had someone defend him. Usually the sum is determined, and then fees added to the sum.

The question should be, why did Fellows require an attorney to recoup his lost wages, suffered as a result of an injury suffered while in the line of duty.
November 16th, 2018 10:29 PM
Do we know if the suspect was ever brought to trial on these charges?
November 16th, 2018 8:05 PM
...or more to your point - that he felt he could get away with it b/c he was white.

Ms. Rasheed I do owe you an apology, Mr. Cohen is correct none of us were there and don't know the situation. And no-one has the right to bang on someone's window over a parking spot. Doesn't mean they won't do it. Also doesn't mean - that if they do - it's because you're black. I will admit that I am exhausted by the term "white privilege" being sweepingly attributed. Does it exist, absolutely. But people are only getting angrier and angrier in this world. If I had been in that lot and seen you threatened I would have absolutely helped you in any way I could. I just want to go through one day - just one where I can read something about this village that isn't toxic. Ditto the world. And honestly Ms. Peterson, I'm more disturbed that you feel you and your buddies have some right to shut down open channels of communication, b/c you deem them to be offensive, than by any comment I've read.
