After listening to the prosecutor describe Tony Robinson as being high on at least three types of drugs, being extremely violent as having assaulted at least two people on the street and then the officer himself, it’s no surprise that Officer Kenny was forced to shoot Robinson in order to protect himself and the community.
Officer Kenny is a hero for putting his own life on the line in such harrowing circumstances and I applaud him for doing a job that would leave most of us wet in our trousers:
CNN – Officer Matt Kenny of the Madison Police Department will not face charges in the March shooting death of biracial teen Tony Robinson, Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne said Tuesday.
“I conclude that this tragic and unfortunate death was the result of a lawful use of deadly police force and that no charges should be brought against Officer Kenny in the death of Tony Robinson Jr.,” he said.
“My decision will not bring Tony Robinson Jr. back,” Ozanne told reporters. “My decision will not end the racial disparities that exist in the justice system, in our justice system. My decision is not based on emotion. Rather, this decision is based on the facts as they have been investigated and reported to me.”
Let’s hope the thugs in Wisconsin stay at home and don’t destroy another city, all for the sake of a very irresponsible and criminal thug who gave Officer Kenny no choice but to shoot him.
I will add video of the prosecutor as soon as it becomes available.
