    Making my job that much more difficult in Madison

    From Madison PD incident reports----

    Okay, first we have this gem:

    Incident Type Weapons Violation
    Incident Date 08/29/2011 - 10:55 PM
    Address 10 blk. E. Wilson St
    Suspect(s) Male, age 57, Madison
    Victim Female, age 24, Madison
    Details
    (UPDATED RELEASE)
    The 24-year old woman, who was shot in the leg, had spent the night prior
    partying with the tenant (the 57-year old man). He says he home alone when
    someone started knocking on a window, and then his door. Next a window to
    an exterior door was broken out. He decided to grab his .22-caliber rifle, and
    pointed it at an intruder who had just entered his apartment. It was the
    24-year old woman. He believed she was trying to burglarize his residence.
    She would later claim that she had come to retrieve a purse, and that the door
    window was broken prior to her arrival. The man held her at gunpoint while
    calling 911. When police arrived, and knocked at his door, he thought it
    might have been an accomplice – someone assisting the woman – even
    though her heard officers yell out: “police.” Fearing a second intruder, he
    says he decided to shoot the woman in the leg.
    A short time later he was
    convinced the people at the door were the police. He opened his door, laid
    his weapon on the floor, and began to explain the gunfire. Prior to shooting
    the woman, he said he fired a “warning” shot into a fireplace wall.
    The
    shooting is under investigation.

    and then there this.....

    Incident Type Weapons Violation
    Incident Date 08/26/2011 - 11:52 PM
    Address 600 University Avenue
    Suspect(s) See below:
    Arrested Matthew Leonard, 23-year-old male of Madison, WI
    Charges: Carrying A Concealed Weapon & Probation Violation
    Victim N/A
    Details
    On August 26th, 2011, at approximately 11:52pm, Madison Police were
    routinely patrolling the Central District, as there were reported to be between
    500-1000 individuals near the 400 block of N. Frances Street. An observant
    officer noticed what he believed to be a holster underneath the shirt of a
    subject, later identified as Matthew Leonard. The officer communicated this
    information to backup units, and then devised a plan to contact the suspect.
    When Leonard was confronted, the officer stated that Leonard did not
    initially comply with attempts to place him into handcuffs. Officers
    eventually managed to take Leonard into custody, and noted a strong odor of
    alcohol emanating from his breath.
    When officers interviewed Leonard about
    the concealed possession of a firearm, he acknowledged that he was trying to
    be cool and it was not a smart thing to do.

    The .25 caliber handgun that was confiscated had been recently obtained by
    Leonard, and he admitted not knowing either the seller or history of the
    firearm, as he purchased it out of a random truck. The public is reminded that
    if purchasing a firearm is an activity you might be involved in, only do so
    with reputable people that can assure you of the history of the gun. Being
    able to return to the place from which you purchased such an important item
    could prove to be extremely important in the future, should you have any
    problems related to registration paperwork or past usage issues. It goes
    without saying that alcohol should never be used when carrying or using a
    firearm, as your abilities and judgment can be significantly impaired.

    (Let's ignore the comment about "registration paperwork")

    and last but not least..... this:

    Attempted murder charge filed against man accused of pointing gun with no bullet in chamber

    http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/loc...cc4c002e0.html

    "Erickson told his son, Bradley J. Erickson, 32, that the incident was just a joke and that the rounds in the gun were blanks, the complaint states."

    "However, Madison Police Officer Bart O’Shea saw that all of the bullets in the gun’s magazine were functional Winchester jacketed hollow-point bullets. Investigator Mike McEvoy confirmed there were 14 rounds in the magazine, but none in the gun’s chamber, the complaint states."
    A. Gold

    Failure to comply may result in discipline up to and including termination.

    My quick .02 based on what I read here-

    Incident #1- Identify your target before engaging and do not engage unless you are in danger. Idiot= book em Dano!

    Incident #2 Carrying a concealed weapon without a permit in a state requiring one and being intoxicated "cause it's cool". Idiot= book em Dano!

    Incident #3 All guns are always loaded, never point a gun at anything you don't intend to destroy. Idiot= book em Dano!

    Without anymore details revealed I would not want any of these tards legally licensed to carry EVER!
    When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

    Seems they all obeyed the law, so no permit would have prevented any of this.
