Officer Howard Morgan was shot 28 TIMES by 4 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 2 MILLION dollar bond.
After his first trial he was found NOT GUILTY for FIRING HIS WEAPON and 2 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!!!!
