Protest Outside Cops Home

Nearly two dozen people held a silent protest Monday night outside the Bridgeport home of police detective Joseph Frugoli, according to WMAQ-Channel 5.

Some protesters said they believed that Frugoli was receiving special treatment because he is Chicago cop.

On Sunday, Cook County Judge Donald Panarese Jr. set a $500,000 bail for Frugoli, charged with killing two men in a drunken-driving accident. Some of the victims' friends and family members said the bail was too low Sunday -- a complaint echoed by protesters Monday.

Frugoli was freed on bail Sunday afternoon.

Protesters said they plan to return to the Frugoli home.

Earlier Monday, Frugoli refused to comment about his case, according to WMAQ.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth was charged Wednesday with DUI manslaughter after a Miami car crash that killed a pedestrian, according to people familiar with the case.

A Miami judge signed an arrest warrant that formally charged the NFL pro with driving drunk when the 28-year-old Stallworth hit and killed 59-year-old Mario Reyes in a March 14 accident.

Stallworth is expected to turn himself in Thursday morning and may bond out soon afterward for $200,000

You know if this wasnt a cop, there wouldn't bed any protests. If he wasnt a cop this would barely be news. It is a tragedy that this happened, but, the citizens and the media want to skewer this guy and the police department because they hate the police.

This is why i believe there should be an order in place that doesnt have to make you disclose what you do for a living, so we the police can get and equal and FAIR trial when it comes to a car wreck or anything else for that matter.

This again is another witch hunt. This guys deserves what he gets, but my God, i can't imagine what is going through his brain and heart at this time.
