The Penn Verdict

August 10, 1986

By today's paper ("Penn Asks That Charges Be Dropped," Aug. 6) Sagon Penn's lawyer does not want a new trial; I don't blame him. Penn received a very fair trial and was acquitted. All he did was kill one policeman, severely wound another, and then proceed to the police car and shoot a ride-along. Then he got in a car and drove over one of those he shot.

I can understand his reactions regarding the two policemen, but the third and fourth acts are not understandable. If I should ever be charged with any crime, I only hope I get the same jury Mr. Penn used.
