Technically incorrect. It was the Dade County Prosecutor who
prosecuted them.

The charges were rioting and inciting to riot. Neither of which is a
federal offense.

The verdict was consistent with the following paraphrase of something
the jury foreman said:

There was inciting to riot -- but Mayor Daley was the person who
did it, and he was not prosecuted. There was rioting -- but the
rioters were the personnel of the Chicago Police Department, and they
were not prosecuted.
