- Michael Mette—the young Chicago police officer sentenced to an Iowa prison for 5 years for the crime of defending himself against an angry drunk in Dubuque—wanted to thank the readers of this column.
- "To all the people who read your column, words can't express how it makes me feel to have this much support," Mette said. "Everybody is calling. It's in the news now, and it's tough to describe how good the support makes me feel. I just want people to know that I appreciate them."
- A defense fund has been established, the Michael Mette Defense Fund, at the Northwest Community Credit Union, 7400 N. Waukegan Ave., Niles. And Chicago's Fraternal Order of Police—the police union—has come to his side.
Hopefully, this will help drive some big name national attention Mike's way. And some donations to defray what have to be enormous legal bills.
