Chicago Police Officer Martin Preib discusses the anti-police movement. Preib took on one of the Innocence Project’s first big wrongful conviction successes out of Chicago. It was the Anthony Porter case, a double murder in Chicago in 1982. Porter was sentenced to death row for the crime. The Innocence Project got someone else to confess to the murder, a man named Alstory Simon, and Porter was freed. The case led to a ban on capital punishment in Illinois. But Porter was actually guilty of the crime.
