SALEM Talk WIND-A/CHICAGO morning guys BIG JOHN HOWELL and CISCO COTTO are responding to President OBAMA's "beer summit" this afternoon with their own promotion: free beer for all police officers FRIDAY (7/31) at WAUKEGAN's SUNDANCE SALOON. OBAMA brought HARVARD professor HENRY LOUIS "SKIP" GATES JR. and the CAMBRIDGE officer who arrested him, Sgt. JAMES CROWLEY, to the WHITE HOUSE for beer and talk about race relations TODAY, and HOWELL and COTTO decided to offer their support for the police with the free beer promotion (and root beer for those on duty).
"This whole incident with Sgt. CROWLEY and Prof. GATES shows how important police officers are to our communities and why they deserve our support and respect," said HOWELL.
"We wanted to do so something to show cops in CHICAGO that we appreciate their service and respect the hard work that they do each and every day," added COTTO.
