A second Chicago alderman has donated to the legal defense fund for the officer who fatally shot Bettie Jones and Quintonio LeGrier.
Ald. Anthony Napolitano, himself a former police officer and firefighter, kicked in $100 on Wednesday to the GoFundMe campaign set up for officer Robert Rialmo's legal bills.
"He's a great kid," Napolitano said of Rialmo, a 28-year-old resident of Napolitano's ward. "I want him to keep his mind straight, keep his sanity. He's going through a lot."
Napolitano's donation matches that of Ald. Nick Sposato, also a former fireman, who gave the same amount last Friday. Both aldermen represent wards heavily populated by police officers, firefighters and other city workers.
