Milwaukee Alderman Mike McGee Jr. Held as a political prisoner in America was the first politician to bring attention to the Frank Jude Jr Torture case after the police department and the city of Milwaukee was silent for four months to cover up the beating by fifteen Milwaukee police officers and the police cover up that follow. Former alderman Mike McGee Jr led marches to gain attention for the Frank Jude jr torture case. Former alderman Mike McGee Jr is an example of what injustice look like and what the judicial system do to politician that cares. This is how they treat great politicians who speak out against injustice for the poor, elderly, the voiceless, the abuse and invisible citizens of America.
Wiretap evidence from Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm and U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic reflect the broad scope of the investigation of the city’s Black political establishment and clergy, with many of the recordings still being released to the press after Mr. McGee’s conviction. While the Frank Jude jr Federal trial for the Officers were going on The City of Milwaukee and the federal government were holding Mike McGee Jr without bail set him up on state and federal charges by wire tapping private phone calls, authorized by federal Judge Adelman Frank Jude jr Civil Judge who resides over the Civil law suite against the City of Milwaukee; ease dropping on Mike McGee jr private phone calls.
Over the last 14 months since Mr. McGee’s initial arrest, only three elected officials publicly spoke out on his behalf and churches that raised funds for his defense are now falling under scrutiny from the media and local officials
Alderman Michael McGee may be the embodiment of the evolutionary development of men like Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey.Warriors evolved to the point where they not only have a spiritual root but are able to comprehend the world of politics where you negotiate and compromise for the benefit of your constituency.This world hates a strong Black man!” he declared.
The controversial case, which has drawn national attention, came to a head June 24 with the conviction of the former Milwaukee alderman by an all White jury in federal court on nine counts of extortion, attempted extortion, bribery and failing to file a currency transaction report.
The denial of bail, use of wiretaps, Arabic-speaking agents and the public maligning of Mr. McGee have raised eyebrows at the federal government’s interest in the case. Many have charged presiding Judge Dennis Moroney and the local media with complicity in a political character assassination campaign against Mr. McGee.
