Haughton standoff with Brown Deer police ended with no arrest (Wisconsin shooter)
Milwaukee J-S ^ | 22 oct 2012

Posted on 10/22/2012 9:23:31 AM PDT by rellimpank

Brown Deer police responded to Radcliffe Haughton's house last year on a domestic abuse call and saw him point what officers described as "long-barreled black object out the window" at his wife as she stood outside, according to a criminal complaint.

Officers suspected Haughton had guns because he was a Marine veteran. They set up a perimeter and ordered Haughton to come out. He refused. Then they saw him standing in front of a window with what appeared to be a hand gun. They ordered him to drop it. He did not.

However, Brown Deer police did not arrest Haughton for reasons that are not clear. Officers left the scene after a 90-minute standoff without entering the home on W. Glenbrook Road or arresting Haughton.

Despite not making an arrest, Brown Deer police requested charges from prosecutors, which is unusual, according to Milwaukee District Attorney John Chisholm.

Prosecutors were limited in what they could charge because police did not make an arrest, Chisholm said. For instance, he could not be charged with barricading himself in the house, as police requested.

"It put the case in an unusual posture from the beginning,"

Like the brave policemen who "established a perimeter" so no one could stop Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold from finishing up their plan.

Great work guys.

Have you found anything indicating that he was a Muslim Convert?

I saw 1 post to that effect.

If he was, it would fit. Honor killing. No one has stated that he killed his wife, but it appears that is what he was after.

It is odd that Obozo received a briefing from Homeland Security about this incident. I take that as an admission that he was Muslim and Obozo does not want it in the media.

I suspect that Obumblenutz got the Homeland Security brief on this guy and his slaughter as a form of after Bengazi cover so he can claim to be on top of terror. However, a darker scenario of White House involvement with a provocateur could easily be developed. One needs to look beyond the police on the scene and determine the Islamic status of the police administration in Deer Park and other political ties. This smells like a dead skunk.
