Janitor in fatal shooting of two Milwaukee teens has gun permit
Milwaukee J-S ^ | 15 mar 2014 | Bruce Vielmetti

Posted on 03/15/2014 4:58:06 AM PDT by rellimpank

The attorney for a maintenance worker who fatally shot two teens police say were attacking him with a baseball bat Wednesday said his client carried a gun because of the nature and location of his work, but is not a gun rights activist or even a hunter.

"He considers it an occupational necessity" to carry a gun and has a permit to do so, the lawyer, David Geraghty, said Friday. He represents Jeremy Rossetto, 39, of Cudahy, who was released from jail Friday after initially being arrested on possible homicide charges after the incident.

Prosecutors ordered Rossetto released without bail, but they will continue investigating the circumstances and don't expect a decision soon on whether Rossetto will face formal charges.

"We feel pretty confident it was self-defense," Geraghty said.

Police say Anmarie Miller, 17, and James Bell Jr., 19, both of Milwaukee, were killed. Rossetto and a 20-year-old man who was with the teens, Clarence Alls, were arrested. Rossetto was treated for injuries he suffered in the attack. Alls was also released from jail Friday, prosecutors said, without being charged.

Glad to see this trending in the right way for the victim, but why is Alls walking around?

Thought I'd add this bit of info.

Police name teens killed in double shooting

MILWAUKEE - A peaceful hymn echoes as dozens gather at 27th and Vliet. Friends and family of 17-year-old Anmarie Miller reflect.

"Just want to know some answer," says David Guerro, Miller's cousin. "Really sad, 17 years old, a bright future."

And those of 19-year-old James Bell are still in shock.

"I loved them with all of me, and it hurts dearly," says Devonte Coleman, friends with Bell.

Exactly why Bell, Miller, and Clarence Alls came to this apartment is unclear.

"We haven't been able to get the story from the detectives as to what the story really is," John Reed, Miller's cousin, explains. "So as of now we're in the dark."

Police say once inside the hallway, they had a violent interaction with the maintenance man. Our police sources confirm words were exchanged, and then a fight started.

Sources say Bell put the worker in a bear hug and started to choke him. Miller grabbed a small baseball bat and started to hit the worker. Police say Alls punched him, as well.

That's when sources say the man removed a .40 caliber gun from his holster and shot Bell, then Miller, in the chest, killing them both.

Miller leaves behind two young children, including one with Bell. Her family insists this wasn't in her character.

"You can't call her an animal," Reed says. "You can't call her a ghetto this and that. It's not what she deserves."

As the DA determines whether the worker acted in self defense, family and friends hold back tears. But they tell us, they will accept the facts, even if their deaths are justified.

"Whatever the truth is, as a family, we will accept that," says Reed.

So, let's see... It was a small baseball bat...

"Really sad, 17 years old, a bright future."

Had 2 kids at 17, one with the dead thug, a bright future? Not so much.

Well, at least the article didn’t say they were aspiring artists or had promising futures.

I spread earlier that there are two videos of the beating and defensive shooting. That should clear up any questions real quick.

"... Miller grabbed a small baseball bat..."

I was wondering how they had a baseball bat "handy"...probably a fungo bat they carried around all the time.

Hmm... The only logical explanation I can come up with is either the gun jammed, or the magazine was emptied. Either way, I suspect the usual crowd of race card players are headed there as we speak.

More “gun violence” and more “teens killed by guns”. We could have nothing worse than baseball bat violence and a dead adult if we had the right gun laws - and liberals would have preferred that outcome.

My Dad moved us OUT of that hellhole in 1970. I thank him quite often!

However, I’m now living 10 miles south of ‘The People’s Republik of Madistan’ we’re getting the same problems here, decades later. If you build it, they WILL come!

Honesty is in short supply in some communities. It is hard to imagine how you can fix the problems that led to this shooting. Each successive generation sinks lower as the liberal state takes its toll.

Those round-a-bouts into Mt. Horeb are HORRIBLE! Dumbest. Idea. Ever. Mt. Horeb is west of me.

The Mustard Museum moved to Middleton, WI a few years ago.

It wasn’t ‘cutting’ it in Mt. Horeb, LOL!

I have a terrific little farm, the sale of which is going to partially fund my retirement. It grows in value every year, despite being in Dane County.

Yep. Within 10 years I’m selling and moving west into a ‘more-red’ county. Building a smaller home that’s old-age friendly for Beau & me and buying more land on top of what we already own.

However, if you have $250K CASH she’s all yours, tomorrow!

I have an escape plan. The boys are grown and gone, no Grandkids underfoot...yet! No need to worry about little old me.

See my tagline, if there’s ANY doubt, LOL!

I had a job interview in Milwaukee some years back and much of the day was something of a series of alarm bells going off in my head. I've never before or since been interviewed by such a PC, race-obsessed HR person. The business was then in the process of moving out to Brookfield or Waukesha (or some such western 'burb) and while I could see why the company wanted out, I wondered if said interviewer felt a sense of irony about the situation. My guess is that even for that individual, personal safety trumped racial solidarity.

These Urban Feral PunkPersons were enrolled in a Pooblik Skrewl Collective Hive designed for such members of the “behaviorally challenged” population.

This blurb from the home page of that “skrewl” says it ally:

“Transition High School provides a school culture and learning environment that allows students to recover from past mistakes and have life-affirming opportunities restored to them.”

Works as well as can be expected, if and only if, an armed citizen is available to cure Urban Feral ‘Bad Behavior Syndrome’ (UFBBS). You see, UFBS is caused by a diet deficient in heavy metals. Said deficiency syndrome is most rapidly ameliorated by injection of lead.

The janitor may be open to charges of practicing medicine without a state issued permit, or PETA may ask for charges of cruelty to dumb animals to be filed.

If it were here in Maine, and had never been planted with a gmo or ge seed, I have a list of folks looking to relocate here who would be willing to negotiate a selling price with you. If not in Maine, I can offer no help. But if it is freedom you are looking for, you might start following our release of the Republic of Maine Constitution and the progress of the secession movement of Maine on www.MaineTV.net

It really is. It just shows the REAL reason for the Second Amendment. Though I can't imagine someone who doesn't hunt, I admire him for realizing it is his responsibility to take care of his own safety. Good job. A lot of people are safer today.

Oddly, it's not. Equilibrium flame temp of powder emits at about 2800k, Sun's about 5300k. Of course that probably wouldn't be what would cross their minds at a time like that...But keeping to the Light of the Son would have been a brighter future. Not that I'm particularly religious or anything, just sayin'...there was a choice made.

Yes, it is. Words cannot express the OUTRAGE many of us are feeling! But, of course, the local Enemy Media glosses over the horrific details.

The latest? Madistan’s Police Chief says, ‘Have a plan for this kind of event.’

It’s like we’re supposed to ‘plan’ for a home invasion like we would a tornado or a blizzard! Good God, Man!

Of course, I have a plan. ;)
