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?

Thanks very much.

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.

Thanks for the update, sounds like an intelligent judge. Brad prolly didn't want to become a test case, but that might be where this goes, depending on the city's reaction.

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.

The judge made it clear that this is most likely not the end of this case because he believed whatever side 'lost' would probably appeal to a higher court.

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.

Brad MUST sue for
1. his legal bills
2.being deprived of the use of his property without cause
3. stress
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.

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 they’d have still arrested him if it was a toy gun.

Thanks for the report SAM.

I’m new to WI and was curious about the laws here regarding carrying. I understand that there is no concealed carry permitted, but I didn’t know about open carry. Is a permit required? There is no registration requirement as far as I could tell.

Thanks again!

Was the judges decision based at all on the fact that he was on his own property, or could this be interprited as being applicable anywhere.
