WE WANT TO THANK OUR READERS FOR THEIR DEEP CONCERN AND INPUT TO THIS ARTICLE. STAY SAFE!
Above is the headlines from the Chicago Suntimes daily paper. For those of you who are neither familiar with Chicago or their Suntimes paper,there are two things to understand about Chicago. One, it is only one of two major newspapers. That's right there are only two major papers, the other being the Chicago Tribune. For the most part the Tribune in the past was conservative and leaned more towards being Republican. The Suntimes has always been Democrat and leans majority, as a Liberal voice and towards being anti-police. Years ago Chicago use to have four papers, the two we mentioned and the American and the Daily news. It has always bothered us that within Chicago, we now get only one of two choices for our daily reads. Its common knowledge for the most part that the Trib does a better part in its editorials and layouts well, that is the some of the time.
Why are we bringing this up? We ran what Channel 2 Chicago said about Officer Mette's incident of self defense, now WITH A SENTENCE OF 5 YEARS IMPRISONMENT in Iowa and how they slanted the story, for the Attorney of a rich grown man known as Jake. JACOB GOTHARD THE KEG and BALL OF BELLVIEW IOWA A DUBUQUE NAME The Suntimes reads like a mirrored reflection, slanted and missing valid issues. Here are the examples and once again their coming from the Dubuque Prosecuting Attorney Gallagher: beating an Iowa college student to the point of brain injury and broken nose and jaw. Channel 2 used two Brain Bleeds broken nose and jaw, not much difference there. or this, the gross use of the identical word, retaliated. Mette defended himself, even the judge admits who the initiator was the alleged victim Jacob Gothard also called Jake. It is our understanding that the Suntimes refused Officer Mette's defense retort and preferred to run the hostile retort of the Prosecuting Attorney Gallager, in favor of a badly appointed Judge known as Ackley. Who wrongly sided with the rich attacker aka now made victim, Jake from Bellview Iowa.
Jake's father owns a large trucking company business in Iowa and Officer Mette is a cop from Chicago an outsider with no political influence in Iowa, unlike daddy Curt Gothard who was in court more than his own son Jake. Jake's alcohol level the night of the single punch by Officer Mette in self defense was .310 and that's a very dangerous level of intoxication. Jake was smashed but not by Mette. Jake also ended up with a later DUI! So what does this really tell you about Jake the aggressor. Officer Mette with a clean record was railroaded and that's an unacceptable judicial travesty by the players in the Dubuque Judicial system.
below is the link to Kass of the Tribune so you can see the alarming difference and negative slants by Channel 2 and the Suntimes. We apologize for your inconvenience our added link below has to still be hard linked, were still having numerous issues with Blogger. Thank you.
