On Condos: ‘I will hold my end of bargain’
His attorney probably told this dope, after the 1st article, that here in Wisconsin there is no such thing as a citizen withdrawing a complaint. Once law enforcement has info, they investigate and control how its resolved, regardless of what the person who originally provided info wants to do.
That would explain his "new attitude" of this article.
On Darien doesn’t reinstate DeVoy
The answer to why you accept this absurd agreement: Get reinstated and then quit! Who's going to hire a Chief who is under suspension??? But, given all the political vindictiveness of the situation, it would be much easier to get another position if you are reinstated and then quit. The rest can be explained to a potential employer who can read the articles and easily get the drift of what happened.
On Committee: Corvina's needs to do more to control bar
She's got things under control...just look at the other article and see who she has as security chief. He's only a felon with multiple convictions (check CCAP)!
On Protecting rights is crucial for new judge
He's not my boss, but I do get to see everyday his Eddie Haskell character. Just wanted others to know he's not like he seems to be from the tone of this article.
On Three accidents in 15 minutes in Rock County
Wow...3 accidents in 15 minutes and none of them near each other! Must be some type of conspriacy
It would be nice if the gazette would talk with courthouse people who actually work with this guy. I think they would see the other side of him. Like how he made Byron's staff interview to keep their jobs and then, on his first day, fired a capable bailiff without cause or justifciation (he had just started a few months before so was still on probation) so that he could replace him with someone he knew. Maybe see how he intimidates courthouse staff. Perhaps, the reporter would see how arrogant, self-centered and pompous Fitzpatrick really is. Also, maybe look into the way he got his appointment in the first place.
On Husband taken at gunpoint
Mr. Angus - Never said it was a conspiracy, just poor journalism.
As long as you're responding, why not publish the actual police report here, so people can read it for themselves.
For those who don't think this story is slanted, re-read the second paragraph: "...and Edgerton police started paperwork to put him into protective custody."
Now re-read the third to the last paragraph: "Williams dropped off Shaun at crisis intervention and completed the emergency detention form ..."
The use of the word "started" certainly leaves readers with the impression that the police didn't complete their job. Nice way to draw people into the story and journalists know studies show most people only read the first few paragraphs.
The real truth is that the request to hold was COMPLETED as noted in almost the last paragraph. The difference? Some editor thought "started" would be more of an attention getter to readers, even if it wasn't entirely factual.
You hit it on the head, Protecting.
One more thought...the Gazette has posted the actual 911 recordings, why don't they post the actual police report, too? I'm sure they have a copy. I seen this done on other newspaper sites. It would be a public service to see it rather than their condensed Reader's Digest version of what it says.
You are exactly right, think! The cops did what the law allows them to do. The gun was considered marital property and was NOT used in commission of crime, so not evidence. Heck, the gun wasn't even out of the basement! Police can only seize as evidence, despite what doc thinks (JPD may have done this in the past, but laws and lawsuits have changed in recent times). There's a little more latitude if there is Domestic Violence involved, but that certainly not the case here by anyone's admission (including those family members who are now critical of the cops). In fact, she wasn't even in Edgerton when the cops were at the house.
I'd love to read the actual officers' report because I'm sure this story is just an edited version of the police report. I know it's common procedure to notify the wife if the person will not be held and I'll bet this was done, but that fact doesn't help the slanted view that the Gazette has taken on this whole matter. I would also bet the cops told her to stay somewhere else for the night given his release to his sister at an unsecured place. Again, I'm sure that information doesn't help fam the flames of controversy that sells papers or keeps these blogs going.
One thing this story does...it shows that the previous stories with family were only THEIR OPINIONS and not the facts. Nice to see so many people here weren't able to see that in the first place.
