Just a few weeks shy of John Wrana’s 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops came through the door of his retirement home with a TASER and a shotgun.
First they TASERed him, but that didn’t work. So they fired a shotgun, hitting him in the stomach with a bean-bag round. Wrana was struck with such force that he bled to death internally, according to the Cook County medical examiner.
“The Japanese military couldn’t get him at the age he was touchable, in a uniform in the war. It took 70 years later for the Park Forest police to do the job,” Wrana’s family attorney, Nicholas Grapsas, a former prosecutor, said.
