Patrick Boyle, President of the Ancient Order of the Hibernians, returns to the Dom Giordano Program to discuss a letter he wrote to District Attorney Larry Krasner regarding his deceased son, former Philadelphia officer Danny Boyle.

Boyle tells whether or not he’s heard a response from the office, and explains how listeners can become involved in the scholarship fund named after his son.
