Will Domestic Violence Raise Eyebrows In Madison
A dozen Wisconsin legislators are demanding an independent investigation of the Brown Deer Police Department, and its policies for dealing with domestic violence. Ten Democrats and two Republicans called Police Chief Steve Rinzel to task. They said his officers let mass murderer Radcliffe Haughton off the hook in previous domestic incidents. Haughton killed his estranged wife and two others at a Brookfield spa 11 days ago before killing himself. La Crosse Lawmaker, Steve Doyle, says there may be the need for more outreach for victims of domestic violence.
The democrat Doyle expects more conversation on the issue when work begins again at the state capitol.
