Benjamin Orr: You must be reading different links than me then. They don't mention ballistic tests but they do mention the other cops being shot and taken to the hospital to get the bullets taken out.
Benjamin Orr: onyxruby: This sounds horrible, in have to wonder if there is something being left out.This is just a biased hit piece. Every other source that isn't huffpo actually mentions the fact that the cops were shot.
Benjamin Orr: Officer Eric White told the judge he drove his wounded partner, Officer Nicholas Olsen, to the hospital."By the grace of God, all of us, including Howard Morgan, survived that morning," he read from a victim-impact statement."The bullet fragment in my leg doesn't really bother me. The one I heard and felt whiz past my left ear that gives me nightmares, and watching as he shot John Wrigley in the chest will torment me forever," he read.http://www.suntimes.com/news/crime/11730457-418/40-years-in-prison-f o r-man-shot-28-times-by-chicago-cops.html
Benjamin Orr: But prosecution testimony indicated that Morgan's gun had fired 17 rounds and tests showed he had traces of gunshot residue on his hands, indicating he had fired the gun, Groth said.The officers testified that after pulling Morgan's van over he jumped out and began cursing at them. He became more unruly as officers tried to calm him down, Groth said. He ignored requests to put his hand on the van, Groth said.Olsen was shot in the arm and White was shot in the leg, Groth said.----------http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2007-05-13/news/0705120715_1_polic e -identification-service-handgun-police-officer
stirfrybry: The police story doesn't even make sense. What possible motivation could the guy have had to open fire?
