In Defense of Alvarez

Yet, many will ask, how do we know that Alvarez is impartial? Prosecutors and police officers rely on each other in order to do their jobs effectively. Can prosecutors and police dependence on each other taint the ability of a prosecutor to vigilantly prosecute a cop – even a bad cop – let alone prosecute cops who do such things as falsify reports to protect their brethren, or alter evidence, as people allege police may have done to video surveillance at the Burger King outside of the parking lot where McDonald was shot. That is precisely why I feel that Alvarez deserves credit. Shortly after receiving the evidence, Alvarez reached out to US Attorney General and requested that the AG partner with her office in investigating and prosecuting this claim. Alvarez took important steps to be sure that she was not in this alone. How can anyone claim that Alvarez carried a pro police bias when she reached out to a trustworthy and competent partner to help independently investigate the case?

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
