Cook County "Justice"
- Keep sticking your neck out
Charges have been dropped against a man accused of battering an off-duty police officer who intervened in a Wrigleyville street disturbance on June 22. The officer was rendered unconscious in the attack.
One count of felony aggravated battery to a police officer against 29-year-old Tremaine Wilson was tossed out with a finding of no probable cause by Cook County Judge Marvin Luckman. The state then dropped a lesser charge of reckless conduct, according to court records.
We can debate the wisdom of taking any sort of police action (aside from dialing 9-1-1) all day long. But this just reinforces the feeling that not a single entity has our backs.
