Almost Killer Convicted
A former Chicago cop has been convicted of trying to kill four police officers even though he was shot 28 times by police during a West Side traffic stop.
A jury Friday found Howard Morgan, 61, guilty on attempted murder charges — five years after a jury deadlocked on the same charges and acquitted him of others in connection with the 2005 incident.
The Chicago Fraternal Order of Police praised the verdict, declaring “justice served” on its website Friday.
But Morgan’s wife was outraged, and blasted the decision as “ludicrous” Saturday.
And he was shot 28 times? And lived to go through two trials?
