Self-defense Is Legal In Milwaukee, Wisconsin

JusticeEven if the powers-that-be wish it weren’t. CCW holder cleared in shooting of would-be carjacker in Milwaukee

So on February 26th, there was an attempted carjacking, but the would-be-bad guy choose a victim who was not in the mood to be a victim.

The 24-year-old man who shot and killed a man who was trying to carjack him in Milwaukee will not face any criminal charges, officials say.

The City of Milwaukee has been trying to limit Concealed Carry as much as they can under Wisconsin law. Because you need to be completely dependent on the state, even when they have proven you can’t depend on them. (When seconds count – as in the case of a carjacking – police are minutes away.)

Prosecutors reviewed the case and “determined that the would-be carjacking victim lawfully acted in self-defense,” Chief Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern said Tuesday in an email.

Self-defense is a human-right, and at least for the time being, it is your legal right in the State of Wisconsin, even in the City of Milwaukee.

Homeowner Defends Himself. Sheriff and DA Hate That

You should rely on the state and only on the state for your well-being. Even though Wisconsin has a Castle-doctrine law, you should rely only on the state. According to the State™, that is. Sauk County homeowner fires gun in response to home invasion sus – WKOW 27

“His first step should be to call 911,” Sauk County Sheriff Chip Meister says. “Everybody’s first step should be to call 911.”

He grudgingly admits that there is a Castle-doctrine in Wisconsin that allows homeowners to protect life and property.

District Attorney Kevin Calkins tells 27 News he agrees with Meister’s legal analysis, but says he will have to review reports on the clash between Gilbertson and Szarfinski before making a decision on the homeowner’s actions.

Because if they can charge a law-abiding homeowner for defending himself from a home-invader, you just know that they won’t pass up that opportunity. Why? Because they hate lawful self-defense with every fiber of their state-bureaucrat beings. The sheriff goes on at length about calling 911 (see my post-category for stories on how well that works out), but strangely he never mentions response time. (Sauk County, home to the tourist-trap known as Wisconsin Dells, is not exactly rural, but it I doubt the cops would be there in an instant.)

The guy doing the breaking-in? He was arrested a short time later breaking into a truck, and he had an injury from breaking a window at another house.

Self-defense is a human-right. And in Wisconsin, it might be your legal-right, if you can keep the State™ at bay.

Another Failure of the Victim-selection Process

Concealed Carry puts a stop to an attempted carjacking. Carjacker shot, killed by concealed carry holder in Milwaukee.

An armed 21-year-old tries to carjack a 24-year-old heading to work Monday morning.

The 24-year-old had a valid concealed carry license and fatally shot the man, said Ald. Cavalier Johnson, who called a news conference late Monday about the shooting.

Cops are looking for a separate vehicle that might have been involved.

The city of Milwaukee doesn’t like concealed carry and is trying to restrict it on several fronts, because resisting a violent criminal is bad. Or something. That is probably one of the reasons that an alderman is giving an interview about an on-going police investigation. Part of what he wants to do is convince violent criminals to not be violent criminals. I think self-defense does a better job of that.

Self-defense is a human-right.

A Partisan Witch-hunt Masquerading As a Special Investigation

JusticeNo, not the Mueller investigation of the Trump Campaign. This article is talking about the Wisconsin prosecutors’ investigation of the Walker Campaign. Governmental accountability board? More like Wisconsin’s Secret Police

Somehow this sounds so familiar…

Wisconsin Democrats took Scott Walker’s victory very hard. They tried to recall him, and failed. And they tried to undermine his term in office through the abuse of legal institutions. Now some of them will face professional discipline, and judicial punishment, as a result. (Criminal charges would be appropriate, except that, as the Attorney General’s report notes, record-keeping was — conveniently — poor enough that it’s hard to be sure exactly who did what.)

While it was supposed to be an impartial investigation, the attorneys (Democrats) kept files labeled “Opposition Research.” That isn’t even the worst of it.

As they say, go read the whole thing. Glenn Reynolds rarely disappoints.

Social Media Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

Oversharing got an armed-miscreant to arrive at this house, after he posted on the Book of Face about winning big at a casino. Fatal shooting in Oshkosh was apparently in self-defense

Nick Davis said someone broke into his residence and demanded money – possibly because he made a social media post about winning at the casino.

The guy was breaking in when Davis confronted him. He was shot in the wrist by the bad-guy. Davis returned fire, killing one Cashmiere Hill.

The guy who was playing getaway-driver is charged with felony murder.

A third guy who went with Hill earlier in the day to scope the place out, is charged with burglary.

Davis is facing no charges because self-defense is a human-right, and your legal-right in Wisconsin.

Good Guys 2, Bad Guys 0

They suffered a breakdown of the victim-selection process. 1 wounded, another jailed in La Crosse home invasion | Crime and Courts | lacrossetribune.com

A 21-year-old man shot Friday during a break-in on La Crosse’s South Side is in critical condition and another intruder is jailed, according to La Crosse police.

Self-defense is a human-right.
