Thanks To The Retirees For Making The 1968 Reunion A Success


The 1968 convention reunion was a success thanks to the retirees. Some of these guys haven't seen each other in years .Retired policeman from flew in from Florida, Utah & Hawaii . Phil Cline gave a nice speech about the importance of The Chicago Police Memorial Fund which the proceeds were donated too.

Since Chicago Cop watch held the press conference we actually sold more tickets than expected 160 attended the reunion .They did not succeed in disrupting the reunion thanks to the men & women of the 12 dist that had to babysit the 50 or 60 protesters

When are you going to create a memorial for people who got shot by police? I mean more people (black males what a coincidence)get shot by CPD each year than pigs get shot by people.

We already have a memorial to those shot by the police-it's called a grave marker.

And BTW, "Anonymous," if you were really firm in your convictions, why not ID yourself?

YES.... A big thank you goes out to the 1968 POLICE!!!! Awesome job in terrible times. If it wasn't for them Chicago would have burned. A fitting tribute to HEROES....God Bless them all.

John Willis.... as usual excellent post, you hit the nail on the head. Grave markers are all they deserve, and, yes, Anonymous, why don't you show yourself, for who you are???? Chicken???? Silly question, of course you are. Spineless, will always be spineless, brave will always be brave.
