Canadian Librarian abandons deportation fight

The Toronto Star Reports A Toronto library worker accused of shooting a Chicago police officer in the arm nearly four decades ago has abandoned his struggle to stay in Canada.

Gary Freeman, 58, who has been in the Don Jail since his arrest in 2004, made the announcement on his website Monday – Martin Luther King Day.

“I have decided to abandon my Supreme Court challenge of the Ontario Court of Appeals decision. I will be returning to Chicago and will be incarcerated at the Cook County Jail,” Freeman wrote.
