The real headline could be “DA drags feet on admitting officer justified in defending himself” No Charges for Wisconsin Cop Who Killed Man Wielding Cleaver.
And he wasn’t just brandishing the meat cleaver.
[Caledonia Police Officer David] Baird needed 23 stitches to his head.
I think that qualifies under the heading of “a reasonable fear of death or grave bodily harm.” I mean, what did they expect the officer to do at that point? So what was the prosecutor considering while deciding if this action was justified or not? OR – Why the F@#^ did it take from August 18th of this year until the first week in December to come to the “justified” conclusion? Because DAs HATE self-defense. And besides, DAs are elected, so they have to pander, because no matter how cut and dried a situation is, someone will be screaming about brutality.
