Officer Matt Kenny will not be charged in Tony Robinson case

A few minutes ago Judge Ismael Ozanne ruled that officer Matt Kenny will not be charged in the fatal shooting of Tony Robinson.  Looking distinctly nervous during the press conference, Ozanne first spoke to the issue that racial discrimination is still a serious issue in law enforcement in this country, and discussed the events leading up to the shooting and the evidence that he used in coming to his decision.

This perhaps softened the blow of the decision in a community that has been very concerned about this shooting since it happened. There will certainly be marches and protests over the next several days, including a scheduled march tonight. Here at Uppity Wisconsin we ask you to please help to make these marches peaceful and respectful to all - there's no point in any escalation of violence in this truly sad case.
