Bail on Katoine Richardson set at $30,000!

Is Freedom Inc. tapped out?

Finally, some realistic bail! At today’s initial appearance, the Dane County court commissioner set bail at $30,000 for Katoine Richardson, charged with 11 open criminal cases — five of them felonies. “Cash?” Richardson asked. Yeah, cash, the court answered.

Commissioner Jason Hanson upbraided Katoine R for “very concerning behavior that seems to violate conditions of [previous] bail. … He has an almost absurd number of open cases at this point. He has access to materials that … have expenses associated with them. … If it happened before it can happen again.”

Fitchburg police arrested Richardson, age 19, Wednesday 03-23-22. He is charged with stealing a gun and money from someone identified as KSM.

At one point in today’s hearing, Assistant District Attorney Robin Lee asked for forfeiture of the previously posted bail of $10,000 but public defender Richard Jones argued those cases were not before the court today.

Jones said that Freedom Inc. posted that previous bail but pledged the social justice warriors would not do so this time. Has Freedom Inc. learned its lesson? They will if the district attorney’s office follows through on seizing the previous bail, given that Katoine Richardson clearly violated bail conditions, those being that he not possess a weapon and breaking curfew.

Jones asked for $3,000 to $5,000 for today’s set of crimes: armed robbery, theft, juvenile possession of a firearm, felony and misdemeanor bail jumping. He is case #22cf000759.

Commissioner Hanson noted, however, that Fitchburg police found that Richardson had $2,500 in cash on him at the time of arrest, in addition to ammunition, marijuana, and the stolen gun.

During the hearing, Richardson complained that he is known as “the State Street shooter,” and — as has Allies for Black Lives Madison — implied that sobriquet was unfair. In attempting to arrest him on State Street 10-10-21, Richardson fired his gun, leading police to return fire. One of the responding police was hit by friendly fire.

UPDATE: Preliminary hearing scheduled 10 a.m. 03-31-22 before Judge Ehlke.

      Reality is that was taxpayer money to begin with. People who spend other people’s money don’t care so much when they lose it.

    Maybe if the DA’s office asked for forfeiture of bail on all repeat offenders out on bail we would see a change or maybe not. I wonder where the money goes on forfeitures?

    This might have less to do with Freedom Inc. seeing Richardson for what he is and more to do with saving up for the legal fees in the upcoming civil case against Officer Matt Kenny, courtesy of Tony Robinson’s grandma.

    You think this a Dane Co. problem because of your hatred for liberals. N.O. La. just had a case where 11,00 was posted for murder and attempted murder. The victims brother then killed the guy at the courthouse. Get off your high horse and and admit that this is a nation wide problem that has nothing to do with political party.

      It has to do with Democrats, Lesiak. George Gascon in Los Angeles, Chesa Boudin in San Francisco, Kim Foxx in Chicago, Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, Marilyn Mosby in Baltimore, Kimberly Gardner in St. Louis, John Chisholm in Milwaukee, Ismael Ozanne in Madison — whom Blaska has been pestering about the Katoine R. case and others. Maybe he is wising up.

        “Democrats” is too broad a brush. More accurate to say radical left or something along those lines. Real Democrats can’t stand many of the people on your list.

        Someone mentioned Disco lunacy the other day. It’s the same kind of mind virus that the whole country is recovering from now. Unfortunately the Madisons of the country will recover last. Silver lining may be stronger alliances between rational actors like we are seeing with DB and Dave C.

          If ever.
