Letter: State Prosecutor in no-win situation with Corey Jones case

Corey Jones

Corey Jones

Whilst I sympathize deeply with the family of Corey Jones on the tragic death of their love one, this case has drawn international attention, and after very careful consideration, the state attorney, Dave Aronberg, decided to hand the case over to the grand jury.

He has since been subjected to a barrage of criticism, and one wonders what the reaction would have been had he decided not to bring charges against the officer. To say that his action was politically motivated is ludicrous.

Aronberg has strong bipartisan support. Any challenge to him (on this issue) would be an exercise in futility. I say to those criticizing him, let your criticism be constructive; and to Dave, keep up the good work.
