  1. Prosecution expert says officer's actions in vet's death unnecessaryRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 14, 2015 | Chicago Tribune

    An expert on police tactics testified Wednesday that a Park Forest police officer on trial in the death of a knife-wielding World War II veteran wasn't facing imminent danger and his use of a shotgun that fired beanbag rounds was "unreasonable and unnecessary." Testifying for the prosecution, Francis R. Murphy, a Florida-based consultant, said Officer Craig Taylor and four other officers at the scene were protected by a ballistic shield and didn't need to use force against John Wrana Jr., who was 95. Murphy was to undergo cross-examination by Taylor's lawyer after a break.
