Crime & Punishment; Koster gets FOP endorsement
Koster, who is running a campaign for Missouri Attorney General based on being an experienced prosecutor, picked up a key endorsement from the Fraternal Order of Police.
Koster was the Cass County Prosecutor before running for Missouri Senate. Voters love police officers - “I am honored to receive the endorsement from the state’s police,” said Koster. “Law enforcement is the top job of Missouri's Attorney General and I am proud to have the support of those who know law enforcement the best.” While prosecutor, Koster made national talk shows for his work in the John Robinson case (the guy who was killing women and putting them in barrels). I'm anti-death penalty, but if a guy ever deserved it, its John Robinson. Current KS AG, then Johnson County KS prosecutor, Paul Morrison, was the first to try Robinson (securing the death penalty). Koster entered a plea that allowed Robinson to get life in prison.
Crime and Punishment - general voters love it. Congrats on this important endorsement.
