Illinois NOW joins Chicago NOW in decrying probation rather than prison for Abbate

The Illinois National Organization for Women decries probation rather than prison for the vicious attack by Anthony Abbate against Karolina Obrycka. “Probation is a slap in the face to Obrycka and any other woman who has been beaten said Bonnie Grabenhofer” President of IL NOW and Executive VP elect of National NOW. It sends a message to men that it is okay to pummel a woman as long as you only do it once and take anger management classes afterward.

Chicago NOW thanks Bonnie Grabenhofer, President IL NOW/Executive VP elect National NOW

To Whom it May Concern,

Anthony Abbate is a disgrace to the Chicago Police Department. He is now a convicted criminal and should not be allowed to continue patrolling our streets. He has violated the trust of every citizen in this city.

I am outraged by his lenient sentence and I am urging you to dismiss Anthony Abbate at his July 7th hearing.

Best Regards,
