Yet another case where a White policeman, suspected of having killed a Black man in cold blood, will not be charged. I was impressed by Ismael Ozanne, the D.A., because he knows very well he’s facing a lot of angry people in Madison. He laid out the situation very carefully and methodically.
I also heard a Black man interviewed who said “Why didn’t the cop tase instead of kill?” I kind of agreed with him until FOX had a detective on who said he’d tried that, too, in his work, but when people are that hopped up on drugs they oftentimes aren’t at all affected by a taser. The perp could have turned the gun on the officer and others around. That was an eye opener, and made sense. Come to think of it, I had a dentist once tell me that they find novacaine doesn’t work when patients are stressed out. Interesting connection, isn’t it.
I felt such a sigh of relief for Officer Kenny. It can’t be easy to know you’ve been the ’cause’ of someone’s death, legal or not legal. May God give him comfort and keep him safe after this ‘verdict.’
