    Wonder why this story hasn’t been updated. The man killed had suffered a mental breakdown two days prior to this and had disappeared from his home in Wisconsin. He had been reported in Missouri acting strangely and screaming/yelling at people. Nothing was done. A few hours later he broke into the home and attacked the homeowner who apparently shot him in the torso.

    Careful, we know of someone that after trying to deescalate a situation by leaving the area.
    Was chased down, and defended himself, not once, not twice, but three separate times.
    He ended up killing two of his assailants and shooting off the arm muscle of the third.
    The pieces of human excrement that signed the complaint Kenosha County Deputy District Attorney Angelina Gabriele (whom is trying to make a name for herself to get elected as a judge) and Assistant D.A. Carli McNeil both Democrats.
