Who’s in YOUR backyard!
Look sharp, readers! Make sure car doors are locked and crash air bags working! Tavion J. Flowers, the gift that keeps on taking, is back on the mean streets of Madison! Sprung from the Dane County Jail Monday 02-07-22 for the paltry price of $400. A week after the 18-year-old’s most recent excellent adventure.
Mr. Flowers was one of the four teenagers — two as young as age 15 — who crashed a stolen car on Mineral Point Road Tuesday 02-01-22 during school hours. Seeing the fleeing boys in her back yard, a likely Mayor Satya-voter invited them in for milk and cookies. Was about to give the boys a lift, seeing that they wrecked their stolen car. Cops got there first. One of the lads was found to possess more sets of car keys than the plaid jacket at the used car lot. At least a couple of products of our public schools were locked and loaded. Madison police say the 16-year old had been adjudicated before. Police identified the oldest of the quartet as our Tavion Flowers.
Waiting for my man; got $400 in my hand
The very same Tavion Flowers, then age 17, who in October (10-07-21) rammed a police squad car in the 1100 block of Gammon Lane as he attempted to escape police looking into the SUV he and another juvenile had stolen. Oops! Allegedly! Allegedly! Charged with being a passenger in a stolen car and two counts of felony bail jumping.
A month later (11-19-21), the indefatigable rapscallion is walking the hallways of Verona high school with a concealed loaded gun. A school security officer nabbed him. Charged with one count of possessing a firearm on school grounds, carrying a concealed weapon and — again — felony bail jumping.
Two days later, a Dane County judge lets Tavion J. Flowers loose on a signature bond and prohibits him from possessing any weapons. Except … except … except … “At the time of his arrest, Flowers was already on a signature bond for a felony theft charge issued in October, which also barred him from possessing any weapons.”
Court date on the February 7 carjack and crash scheduled for 10 a.m. next Tuesday 02-15-22 before Court Commissioner David Flanagan. If he shows. (Tavion, not the judge.) We see Tavion is also on a restraining order for domestic harassment. Faces Judge Julie Genovese Friday morning 02-11-22. Don’t know what that one’s all about.
From the Madison police blotter:
NORTH: Fight Call – 12:39 p.m. Tuesday 02-08-22: Officers responded to a report of a large group of high school juveniles fighting on the sidewalk and in backyards. No injuries observed or reported. Limited cooperation. Investigation continuing.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: What is the price of freedom? For serial offenders in Madison WI: just $400. (Endeavoring to find out who posted it.) For the law-abiding citizens, priceless!
