***FRI.AUG.16, 7pm CST:CLIMATE CHANGE program "POLITICS OF POWER" w/host of "ALL In" CHRIS HAYES on MSNBC
***SAT.AUG.17, 1pm JUSTICE FOR TERRENCE FRANKLIN--MINNEAPOLIS
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman assured the public he would be an impartial investigator. However in a recent Star Tribune article he revealed himself to be far from impartial, pointedly blaming Franklin for causing his own death and implying that because Franklin had been accused of a crime it justified his death at the hands of the police.
Now while publicly saying they won’t release information until after the grand jury hearing, his office is privately releasing information, which just may be planted evidence—to the press.
