The judge hearing the second jury trial of Jordan Miles' federal civil-rights lawsuit against three Pittsburgh police officers should invoke a gag order.

Everyone wants to paint a picture of this altar boy viciously attacked by three white men in a Homewood alley because of a picture taken in a hospital room. All of Miles' family, as well as his attorney, weren't too thrilled with the first trial's outcome.

Mrs. Dahmer spoke well of Jeffrey, Mrs. Capone spoke well of Al, and the list goes on. Four people know the truth of that incident and it will come out in court.

Trial by media isn't the way to promote this case.
