‘This is why I bought a gun’
Folks, this is the pricey Greentree neighborhood due north of Meadowood. Reports from three different neighbors on social media:
1) 13 gunshots @1:46am. Called the non emergency AND 911. – no one picked up, 2x each. Piping & Whitney. Police walkiy piping now with flashlights. Be safe everyone & take care of your neighbors! I called once after hearing gunshots and it took nearly 3 minutes for them to answer. They said it was because so many were calling it in it flooded the lines.
2) We heard it too but it was 1:13 am. Two bursts of multiple rounds. We didn’t even call because it happens so often now. We live on Barton and Gilbert. …
3) This is why I just bought a gun because we really don’t have anyone but ourselves. We have another retaliation war on our hands on the West side. Get ready, it’s gonna get worse with the weather changing, darker earlier, wearing face masks with hoodies because it’s cold now, this is a recipe for disaster. This also happens last night same area
BLM targets sheriff, causes commuter crash
Straight from the cop shop:
A known protest group began staging in the parking lot of Memorial HS parking lot at 5:00 pm Thursday 09-17-2018. Approximately 30 people with bikes and cars gathered and at approximately 6 pm began moving Northbound on Gammon Rd.
MPD’s command post alerted Dane County Sheriff’s Office of the likelihood of the group traveling toward Sheriff Mahoney’s home in the West District. He was not home at the time but a family member was present. MPD monitored the group to provided traffic direction in order to keep involved and uninvolved motorist and pedestrians safe. The group occupied the roadway outside the Sheriff’s home for approximately 1.5 hours.
… The group left the area of the Sheriff’s home around 8:15 pm and moved back towards Memorial HS. They ultimately traveled in a slow moving vehicle procession onto the EB Beltline and came to a complete stop on the EB Beltline near Verona Rd for approximately five minutes before continuing a slow procession EB through the area of Todd Dr before resuming normal speeds.
A two-vehicle crash on the EB Beltline was reported during the slow-speed procession.
BLM fired high-powered explosives at police
Madison police today updated info on the riot in the early morning hours of 08-26-2020.
During the criminal activity period this night, two commercial grade fireworks were thrown at Madison Police Department officers and city property.
[One video] shows an object flying towards the intersection of University Ave and N Park St. and blowing up right as a MPD squad car was moving past that spot around 1:20am.
The [second, reproduced here] video captures an explosion that occurred immediately in front of a marked squad car on the 200 Bl W. Mifflin St., nearly hitting Madison Police Department officers who were attempting to quell the criminal behavior of several individuals. … MPD is seeking information on these incidents and looting that occurred.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Remember this when Madison alders vote to defund the police in the upcoming budget deliberations.
