Get off my lawn!
Merchants on Madison WI’s State Street learned that their pitiful signs of support for racial justice didn’t prevent their windows from being smashed and their stores looted. Same principle for Sheriff David Mahoney.
In conjunction with other community leaders, Sheriff Mahoney denounced the actions of those four Minneapolis police in the death of George Floyd.
Back in 2011, Dane County’s sheriff objected to acting as Scott Walker’s “palace guard” when tens of thousands of angry protestors stormed the Capitol during the Act 10 intifada. A year ago, Mahoney endorsed Madison Cops Out of School/Derail the Jail candidates.
David Mahoney is a good sheriff but a partisan Democrat who goes along with Dane County’s progressive idiocy in order to get along.
What was Sheriff Mahoney’s reward for being sufficiently “woke”? The social justice warriors stormed his home Tuesday — his private residence, where he lives with his family — to pretty it up with their anti-cop doggerel. Those included demands that all black jail inmates be released forthwith. At least they did not vandalize his house. But it is trespassing.
No amount of groveling
Because no matter how hard Dave Mahoney tries, he remains a cop, the enemy of the Left and their fellow travelers in public office. And white.
⇒ THIS JUST IN: Sheriff Mahoney and Madison Police Chief Vic Wahl announced they were to kneel with the protesters this afternoon. (Snark alert! That should do the trick!)
The little visit to Mahoney’s private home was part of Tuesday’s illegal traffic slowdown on the Beltline Highway — organized by Freedom Inc., Urban Triage, and the communist Party for Socialism & Liberation. On May 31, the three entities issued a statement condoning Madison’s nightly riots, which read in part:
We echo the powerful words of Assata Shakur: “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
Our organizations will not denounce any Black person’s display of grief and/or rage. All actions against racist state violence are justified and we will not minimize these contributions to liberation.
Who is this Assata Shakur? She is a member of the Black Liberation Army who was charged with a plethora of felonies and ultimately convicted of the first-degree murder of a New Jersey state trooper during a shootout in 1973. She escaped from prison in 1979 and was granted political asylum in Castro’s Cuba in 1984. The FBI lists her as one of its Most Wanted Terrorists as Joanne Deborah Chesimard.
Today on the barricades
• Freedom Inc. is on-line at 6 p.m. today to explain how they will defund the police at facebook.com/aboutfreedominc
• Blaska joins the divine Ms. Vicki McKenna from 4:10 today (06-03-2020) to plead for sanity.
An addendum: Ann of Althouse picked up this post and that generated a comment from one of her followers that was implicit but needs to be expressed:
It’s a message. It says “We know where you live and you can’t stop us. This time flowers. Next time gunfire and molotov cocktails.” That’s the message to the sheriff.
be careful, the Stately Manor may be in Grayson’s future escapades. HA!
If so, I count on the Squire to shoot and not Trick or Treat.
Protected by the law firm of Sturm, Ruger.
“We know where you live.”
I think in an open country, it’s good that our public leaders live publicly and not behind gated fences. They are us, no? Letting someone know, “We know where you live” is no problem for most. It’s also protected speech under the First Amendment. We want to live openly like that, all Americans, not just the “protected” people…
When people make the pilgramage to “visit” the private property of another… that’s the important issue to focus on, Dave.
That’s trespass: stepping on to a man’s property to deliver anything: flowers, a message, etc. That’s the issue.
Knowing where someone lives is simple matter of public research. Very legal. Telling a person you know where they live should strike no fear. Public record. The province of any journalist, you know that.
Don’t get lost about the trespassing and the actual visit to the home. That’s the important thing, not knowing something that is non-protected in the public database. Don’t fear information…
Or an open and honest society, with little hidden.
The sheriff LIVES at the Public Safety Building, 115 W. Doty St. Madison WI. David Mahoney lives at that private residence. Or can my friends make a little purpose “visit” to Brandi Grayson at her abode?
They are one and the same though, the man and the office.
We agree. No “visits” to a private residence, and no trespassing or leaving of gifts.
But no, the sheriff’s private residential address is in the public record, just like mine and yours, Dave. That is a GOOD thing. It is what keeps us from being a Third World country, with the regular citizens and the “protected class.”
Sheriff Dave Mahoney has an important job in society, as do many of us. Still, as an American citizen, he is simply one of us. = Good thing. And yes, we know where he lives. Why, you even helpfully printed a picture to accompany the publicly reported story. Good on ya! Stay free, Dave’s. And all of us…
Hmmmmmm. Birdshot then .00 buck.
#4 buck is the preferred shotgun home defense round: heavy enough to get the job done but light enough not to penetrate walls and injure friendlies. Chambering a round in the ole’ 870 usually gets most folk’s attention and, in my experience, is usually sufficient.
Bird shot isn’t a great idea, especially if you live in a place like Dane county. You may have to articulate to a jury of border line retarded, NPR listening, box wine moms that it was necessary for you to pull the trigger. That being the case, if you’re in a situation that justifies pulling the trigger, you’re going to want something that works, bird shot doesn’t.
But it sure wakes ’em up to the possibilities. Plus, I’d rather paint afterwards. I hate sheet rocking.

No price too high to expiate the uncomfortable white guilt of Madison proglibocrats and that includes a wink and a nod in response to savages committing vandalism, looting, arson, assault/battery, and indiscriminate total destruction of businesses and vehicles.

Where is there corroboration of this storming of the sheriff’s home? I can’t find any information on it – except in this article? Were did you get the information?
I never tell. Believe it anyway.
You have just entered the BS zone dec, Believe it anyway my pretty pink; well you know.
You almost got to feel sorry for the guy.
Almost. I remain hopeful.
This is triggering my flight or fight response. ….and it ain’t flight.
I am a “Japanophile”, and I go crazy watching the Tokyo based NHK TV say how Americans are racist. ABC news is their American “partner” to receive news feeds and information about the US. This is how a chunk of the world gets their information about the USA! We gotta get ahead of this propaganda. Challenge these media mis-representations. (BTW, a percentage of Japan folks are as racist as it gets)
