Thanks for the report.
He needs to sue the city for everything.
This is simply not acceptable.
How’s Brad getting along with that neighbor these days?
GREAT REPORT, Man! I hope Brad follows that Georgia US District Court ruling that such a seizure was a Fourth Amendment violation but that is a different Circus and would not be binding on WI. I’d love to see Brad follow several avenues here and ratchet this all up to SCOTUS (quick before the balance changes!). I almost hope the town appeals so a precedent is set when he wins all the way up the chain.
Is the name of the complaining citizen (future candidate for subject) known?
In IL the law specifically states that one can be armed while on ones own property. I carry a copy of the Statute with me.
I hope he can sue the crap outta the city.
West Allis used to be a nice place! I bought my first two pedal steels from West Allis Music.
Great report! Thanks. It will be interesting to see how the corrupt MSM will end up spewing this. Any bets on how the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel will try to swing opinion? (Here’s a clue: They hate guns with a white-hot passion.)
The guy was rightly found not guilty, with what possible reason do they presume to retain a private citizen’s confiscated property?
Thanks for the report. I was intending to do the same thing a few years back. I went to talk to our local sheriff and realized I wouldn’t be picked up... he was completely on my (our)side. Juneau County Wisconsin at the time.
How does a prosecutor appeal a "not guilty" verdict? I trust that there is no double jeopardy in Wisconsin.
At least the judge could read the Constitution, which is more than we can say for a majority of the USSC in the Kilo case.
Great report. Good outcome.
Brad MUST sue for
1. his legal bills
2.being deprived of the use of his property without cause
4. whatever punitive amount he and his attorney decides is appropriate
5. to force the law drones to take classes so this doesn’t happen again.
6. for civil rights violations where applicable.
“Thanks for the update, sounds like an intelligent judge.”
I must disagree. The decision shouldn’t have taken 5 minutes. The man is on his own property minding his business and not bothering anyone. Even IF he wasnt on his own property it is an open carry state. How can peaceably carrying a holstered gun on your own property be creating a disturbance. THE JUDGE IS A COMPLETE MORON. It is troubling that this OBVIOUSLY open and shut case should be so hard to decide.
Thank you for the after action report. A tentative “win” for the good guys.
Nice report. As a fellow Wisconsinite, I am closely following this case.
I wonder if theyd have still arrested him if it was a toy gun.
