“It’s a search for the truth.”
– Racine County District Attorney Rich Chiapete
From Journal Times:
RACINE — One month to the day since Donte D. Shannon was shot by Racine police after allegedly brandishing a gun, the Wisconsin Department of Justice investigation into the incident is nearing completion.
In a statement Friday afternoon, Johnny Koremenos, the director of communications for the DOJ, wrote: “DOJ anticipates having all investigative reports and evidence to the DA next week for review.”
Racine County District Attorney Tricia Hanson will be the one to decide if charges against the two officers involved in the shooting are merited, according to the DOJ.
Hanson, speaking Jan. 29 to a crowd of demonstrators outside the Racine County Courthouse, 730 Wisconsin Ave., said that when the report is finished, she will need time to review it and then will sit down with the family.
“They get to be first in this process,” she said. “The entire investigation will be published after I have an opportunity to meet with the family … I will make every effort to achieve total transparency with the community. I understand you have questions, and those questions need to be answered. I just can’t answer them now.”
Nakia Shannon, Donte Shannon’s father, said he was disappointed to learn the status of the investigation from the newspaper and would have preferred to have heard directly from the Department of Justice.
Nakia said he is hopeful that he will be able to be in the room when the district attorney receives the report and evidence so that nothing is redacted.
Two Racine police officers, Chad Stillman and Peter Boeck, were put on administrative leave after the Jan. 17 shooting. The shooting reportedly occurred after a traffic stop near the intersection of 14th and Villa streets.
The first time around, Racine County Deputy DA Trish Hanson chose to provide cover for her boss, Racine County DA Rich Chiapete and make the claim that she failed to act because the Racine Police locked up the Police Report and would not allow her to view it!
No Justice – No Peace.
What’s not to understand?
Donte Shannon was a SAINT compared to former Racine County DA Rich Chiapete.
The only OTHER differences are:
Rich Chiapete and his wife Jennifer are supreme dirtbags – but they got connections all the way up to Governor Walker – so a pass is just de riguer.
Same with current Racine County DA Trish Hanson.
The TRASH is on the inside – not the outside.
Skin Color merely hides what is inside – which is why John Dickert was such a *DISASTER* for Racine.
Enjoy the decline.
So what will it be for Donte Shannon vs. Racine Police Department?
Thumbs UP! or Thumbs DOWN!
The sweat soaked gladiator looks up to the editor who will make the call–cut the throat of his downed opponent or let him live. The crowd yells and makes dramatic hand gestures, trying to sway the stony-faced editor.
“Mitte!” (Let him go!) scream some.
“Iugula” (Kill him!) roar others.
Governments are bereft of real resources, are desperate to acquire same, and will be inconceivably—by today’s standards—rapacious in doing so. That’s quite a statement, because even today they’re pretty damn larcenous.
A generalized crash will also clarify the central conflict of our time: government and it’s string-pullers, minions, beneficiaries, and cheerleaders versus everybody else. Such a characterization suggests a deepening of today’s polarization. Unfortunately, as order breaks down, it will be everybody else versus everybody else, too. Good-bye polarization, hello atomization.
And order will break down. Government always and everywhere rule by force, fraud, and intimidation, but force, fraud, and intimidation need to be paid, preferably in something that can be exchanged for groceries or shoes for the kids. History suggests that the government and central bank will depreciate (speaking of fraud) their fiat debt instruments—Federal Reserve Notes, US Treasury debt, and central bank credit balances—to their marginal cost of production, or zero.
When governments are bankrupt, their praetorians forage—a nice word for theft and extortion. They’ll be competing with hordes of foraging civilians, many of whom will be armed. In such a scenario, one identifiable group has a fighting chance, and it will involve fighting and lots of it. That, of course, is the group who have either been preparing for such a scenario for years or have the skill set and mental fortitude necessary to adapt to it. Much scorned, this group may get the last laugh, but it will be a grim one.
