The Federal Court Verdicts In The Frank Jude Case Are Good News

The guilty verdicts delivered in court Thursday, along with early guilty pleas, are a solid healing step for the City of Milwaukee.

The damage to Jude, Lovell Harris and the larger community were severe, but seeing justice roll from the courthouse, though a long time coming, should lift everyone's spirits.

The Journal Sentinel editorial board says it all on point, here.

And the full injustice will be finally wiped clean when the legislature repeals the special state law, lobbied successfully by the police union, that requires Milwaukee taxpayers to continue paying convicted ex-police officers until their appeals are over - - leaving two of the convicted ex-officers/felons in this case even yet on the city payroll.
