It was determined that there was no criminal responsibility. He what he did was within his procedures. This was the third time that he had been involved in a fatal shooting and syriza of years. All three had been thoroughly investigated and determined that he did the right thing. I don't think I'm telling tales out of school. When I tell you that I've had an opportunity to talk to Wauwatosa Police chief, Very Weber and Webber always told me if I was a good cop, he thought he was a good cop who got himself involved through no fault of his own in life threatening situations and who behaved accordingly. Anyhow, MENSA became a hot potato in Wauwatosa. There's no question about it. You had these protest groups that were trying to force him out. You had an investigation where they concluded. Well, you know, there might be people that try to if he continues to be in Wauwatosa, you might have people that try to, you know, force him or egg him on or try to get him into situations where he does something that's wrong. And I think that there is a element to that. And that's why I said I thought, even though there wasn't any evidence that he did anything wrong, it was in the interest of Officer MENSA to separate from all the Tosa. Sometimes you just you become too much of a hot potato. You you need a change of scenery. Well, Joseph men said is getting that change of scenery. Here is a statement from the Walker Shaw County Sheriff Eriks Iverson dated yesterday. I have extended unemployment offer to Mr Joseph MENSA. Which he has accepted for the position of Deputy Sheriff, Mr MENSA progressed through an extensive, thorough and exhaustive hiring process. Well, some of expressed concerns about Mr Menses past uses of force I assemble team who exhaustively reviewed his previous work history. I have concluded along with the Milwaukee D, a. The wallet Tosa Police department to Milwaukee Police Department. As well as an independent investigation conducted by Wauwatosa Police and Fire Commission that Mr Menses use of force was consistent with federal and state laws, Wisconsin training and uniformly applied police policy. This is consistent with all other investigations, Mr MENSA will enter a supervised field training program where he will be afforded the same opportunities as every other deputy working for the walk of Shaw County Sheriff's Office. So Joseph MENSA has been hired by the Walker Shaw County Sheriff's office that this training thing I assume, is kind of like the probationary period and thing that they put all the deputies thrill, but he's going to get his badge back, and he will continue. In law enforcement in southeastern Wisconsin, our number 85561616 20, that second mortgage talk and text line. I am sure that this decision by the Walker Shaw County Sheriff is being that met with outrage in some circles. Me. If he was me, I think, while I think it was good that he left the wall with Tosa Police Department, nothing that I have seen suggests to me that he should not be allowed to continue his career in law enforcement. It's certainly a controversial higher But I don't think it's a bad 185561616 20. What do you think? Shoes that are.

"Um By the police during those days, and it was after the third day of that, that you know we wrote the letter to the chief asking some questions, and that's when I pulled out the first. You know version of a resolution to actually get oversight done in Madison that lead to you know, the older work group and the the The civilian oversight board. So what What is coming of that is that there's this, Uh, research agency out of Pennsylvania, called the Quattrone Center that does root cause analysis of police incidents. So it might be of, you know, hopefully shooting or major incident but they're looking at those three days of protests as a whole to do some independent analysis of what the heck happened. So we're really we're really looking for Tomo. Seeing the results of that. And I think you know, after the police stood down from that tactic that appeared to be a coordinated nationwide tactics. Um, you know, things did did become a shuttle down a bit more. Yeah, well, we have a couple of callers and also a question from someone who didn't stay on the line. Let's uh, get quickly to them as Shelly, You're on the air. Hi, Steve. Thanks for having me. I just wanted to share your excitement. Toe have JJ Syria Ramos as our spring election producer. I did want to point out that her temporary position is funded entirely through a grant. So unfortunately, ah, work won't be able to pay for that normally, but over really excited to have her and just want to tell people stay tuned in January because we'll be Live streaming all of these debates, um, in January and into February, so Yeah, they're good looking, and I'm glad we have the person about to write these grants and that there is successful. I know it's not the only ground right. We got the p P p Grant. Yeah, we did. We've gotten a few grants of during Cove it but Dave, the president of the board, and I wrote one for news coverage. And so that's how we were able to hire Jane. Excellent. Thanks. I've been. You will. Surely you too, and and we have Greg on the line. Hi, Greg. I s t Yeah. What's your comment or question for overwork? Um Please sing it. Just reform. Um Served, Um, the massive police department policy procedure of you at hot Committee. Um and we generated 177 recommendations. Um For the most part, MPD has not presented implemented his recommendation. It's very resistant to reform. And now the whole process over the last sort of years since 2012 when Polly human was killed. I've been involved in many efforts to change policing in Madison. The system is incredibly resistance. There's really Aid. Severe lack of accountability and you could see it and multiple ways. Um, you can see it and, for example, the recent PFC hiring decision Where, despite overwhelming public support for hiring chief Batista for Mesa on the PSC, and instead decided to hire, um Sean Barnes. You can see it in the attempt by certain elected officials, including the mayor to gut the oversight mechanism recommended by the ad hoc committee. And thankfully some all others. Including Rebecca came together to ensure that an independent mater and police civilian oversight board would be enacted, has initially recommended. Um, but it's a very long and difficult process, and it's basically seemed designed to wear down anybody who is attempting to implement change. Just grind that, um, granted here and grind with you every step. They attempt to pull back any progress. Um, So I'd like to hear Rebecca thought that all of that. Will actually Greg before we ask Rebecca about that. Let me ask you a little moment calling Greg Columbia who's being very involved in all these issues, and has been doing really important work. I believe, Greg, you, ally researcher, um scientists, and you have applied well scientific knowledge, teau. Research on what's going on in I'll city when it comes to police, police brutality and so on and so forth. The city just hired Sean Burns as the new police chief. Itwas an overwhelming support for but peacetime. I can think of his first name right now, Um, a man who has in the past, um, spoke against officers who killed Killer cops. Oh, um Officers who who will brutal tow the citizenship on debt. We got Sean Burns, who I'll ask you to talk more about him and why. I believe you are not excited about him and about the whole process off hiring him. Yeah, it was basically a corrupted process. The police and Fire Commission is a mechanism in Wisconsin that overseas personnel decisions. Including hired a chief. It's anachronism. It's known that it's not the best process. Um, you know, and it's At this point, you know, largely confined to Wisconsin. Um, the police and Park Commission has no accountability to the residents of the city. And, um And marry Sathya has made decisions about who to the point that had further undermined that there has been a long standing Tacit understanding that retired police officers should not be appointed the precinct park commission on because the police and fire Commission is supposed to be a civilian oversight body. With responsibility of overseeing. Elements of MPD specifically the hiring. Well such appointed, Um Mary Shaw, who is now president of the PSC, who retired on Lee the prior year from the Madison Police Department of the captain. It's been here a conflict of interest. Historically, it's always been recognized that that would be an inherent conflict of interest. But project currently is not bound by scriptures on good government. Um, And then the PSC decided to just ignore, um, all the benefit in put your headlines and all the news media thank overwhelming support for Easter. However, you know any officer and any cheese who actually tries to hold opposites to account who actually condemned police brutality is gonna have a huge pushback. From the police union. So one Batista was a nicer And he condemned officers beating up people in brutalizing people. The police union went all out. It held a no confidence vote. And when, but Houston became a finalist here, there was huge pushback from the union from police supporters. Um, to last a long time to be chief. So, basically, if you have a cop who does the right thing, they're ultimately gonna get punished for it. Um and the PSC. Played that part perfectly that two members of the PSC did vote for the Teesta, but three did not including Mary Shaw. Um, you know, so we ended up push on burns in from Barnes. Among other things, he has a major advocate for what's called predictive policing. I'm trying to predict where, um Where crime looker and the intensifying enforcements in those areas. The problem is that computer algorithms that are used in predictive policing have been shown to greatly exacerbate racial disparity. And Madison already has some of the worst racial disparities it arrest invitation rates in the country. So if you being in a process that's going to make that worse. That's exactly what we don't need. You know the protesters after Floyd Floyd respect black lives matter with the PFC told us as well, No, really, they don't Um, you know, and You know, we'll we'll see how sign but Sundberg functions, but Um, at this point, you know, I'm not particularly excited about the new police chief. It'll be more of the same MPD. Basically, ever since Cooper left, it's directed backward in many ways and has been very resistant to acknowledging problems have been very resistant to reform. Um, you know, so we were hopeful with the Teaster. And now there is little reason for hope. Mm Greg, stay with us for a little bit more while I take the next caller who has a question about the search for a new MPD chief ritual. If we can get that calling one, please. This question is from an online listener. And the listener asks, Could Rebecca comment a bit as to how the search for a new medicine Police Department chief was successfully diverted away from the presumptive but highly unpopular finalist from the Portland police? And so you, Rebecca, And then I'll ask you great to talk about it, too. Yeah, I think. Whoa that's going to be O e. Don't know. Okay, don't be. Oh, tries to figure out what's going on there. Greg Yes. Yep. What's your answer to the square pin? Um Chris Davis was Portland deputy trees. Um and Gave us had.
