Pro Police Beating Up Innocent Teens
Via The Trib:Pittsburgh police plan to use tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day Parade to show support for three officers accused of beating a Pittsburgh teen.Guess it beats the Blue Flu . . .
In a memo dated today, the Fraternal Order of Police Fort Pitt Lodge No. 1 encouraged its members to come out in "unprecedented" numbers during the parade and to purchase T-shirts for $12 stating "We Support Our Three Brothers."
On the front of the shirts are the numbers 3599, police code that represents the officers' zone number and status as being assigned to plainclothes duty
FOP President Dan O'Hara wouldn't say what the sales of T-shirts tomorrow would benefit.
It's "really not relevant," he said. "This is something we want to do to show support for our officers, and that's what we're going to do."
