     Trial began here in Pittsburgh for two of the five officers involved in the beating related death of motorist Jonny Gammage.

     Joint proceedings began on October 15, 1996, for Lt. Milton E. Mulholland and Patrolman Michael G. Albert accused of involuntary manslaughter.

    On Friday October 18, 1996, Common Pleas Judge David R. Cashman declared a mistrial due in part to Coroner Cyril Wecht's comments in court and on national television while under a gag order.

    All are encouraged to enforce justice and see to it that the officers are retried and such retrial commence within 120 days as required by law in Pennsylvania.

     Efforts are still being taken by members of the Campus Coalition for Peace and Justice (CCPJ), NAACP Pittsburgh Chapter and the Urban League of Pittsburgh. 

    Additonal issues have been taken up since the verdict issued in the trial of Officer John Vojtas and in the light of local businesses failing to do their part on any part.
