I posted in the headlines thread, but I'll mention it here too. Paul Heenan was a super cool guy. I spent a few nights with him when he recorded a demo for an old band of mine at DNA and I had nothing but respect for him. Not only was he a great musician, he was a super mellow guy who seemed to like everyone. He was that one guy you know who just exuded positive energy. I feel terrible about what happened to him.

Cops who get suspended for excessive use of force need to be stripped of their firemarms permanently if they are allowed to remain on the force.

A dick being a dick. Thanks Meade. Maybe if you knew him you could comment. Some of my friends did so go fuck yourself.

I didn't blame the officer for anything, but you blamed this guy for suicide. It's not like you've jumped to conclusions before.

Well, Stebben, I wasn't replying to you, was I? I was replying to rick who jumps to the idiotic conclusion that the cop used excessive force and should be stripped of his firearms and maybe lose his job of protecting and serving and keeping the peace and that includes stopping people when they invade other peoples' homes. So fk yourself twice, Stebben.

Plus I asked a question. Which is different from "jumping to a conclusion". So make that 3 times.

It's not rick's conclusion. It's what was reported in the news:

Officer involved in Friday shooting previously disciplined for excessive force

Laurence, your remark was in really bad taste.

This cop HAS used excessive force in the past! It is not idiotic to think that he could do it again.

This has to be a typo.
After arriving, police officers saw the intruder and Heenan struggling outside the house. Police say a confrontation ensued between Heenan and an officer, that the officer repeatedly told him to get down, and that Heenan was shot by the officer during the confrontation.

The police saw the intrude and Heenan struggling? That can't be right. And I see there's a comment from someone named Walter asking the same question eight hours ago.

So it was was "reported in the news". Well doesn't that make it so?

But reports also show another bar employee stated Heimsness' actions were appropriate, given Bauer's conduct in the bar and his resisting arrest. An internal police investigation cleared Heimsness and Dane County's district attorney filed no criminal charges.


Kenneth, for exactly which remark of mine are you trying to discipline me?

Jesus...unbelivevable.

Anyone who's been here for any length of time knows this is not an aggressive cop. This is a cop who cares about the community. A cop who cares about the music community.

This story just keeps getting worse.

Your callous remark in this post. I can't imagine how hurtful it would be for Heenan's friends and family to read that at this time.

Can you imagine how hurtful it might be to the friends and family of the cop to have his reputation impugned?
