    Police insist they did nothing wrong and got their guys.

    Is that a link to The Onion? This story certainly can't be possible.

    Sincere question, Dick, did you have any part in helping these men? I know you've said before that you do this kind of work.

    I know I could probably Google it, so forgive me for being lazy, but the video mentioned a concerted effort to frame them. Do you have more details of what that entailed?

    It's out there. There was a Buzzfeed story last year on it and some Sun-Times and Tribune stories through the years. I know I'm basically telling you to Google it, but I have my reasons.

    Fair enough. I'll dig around when I have a second, while hoping a prominent poster does the service of finding/posting the links for my lazy/busy ass.

    They're safer in prison than going back to 2016 Chicago.

    It's far safer than the city they left. That's not saying much, of course.

    Good job. You should feel rightly proud.
