Hier, j’ai blogué sur les officiers qui ont clairement écrit des incidents de « recours à la force » dans leurs rapports de police au conseil. Voici d’autres qui n’étaient pas immédiatement évidents lorsque vous avez lu les 100 pages de rapports.Je pense également qu’il y aura la partie 3 de cela, parce que je pense que ces rapports ne concernent que les endroits où il y a eu des arrestations et il peut y avoir d’autres rapports.

OFFICIER ANDRES RIVERA

Le 5-31-2020, j’étais dans l’uniforme d’équipement dur de l’équipe des événements spéciaux du MPD qui servait de SET Medic. Alors qu’ils étaient immobiles sur State Street et Lake Street, une substance a endommagé les fenêtres d’une installation locale lorsque la directive a été donnée de traverser Lake Street en direction ouest. Lorsque je me suis aligné avec le reste de l’élément, un sujet, qui était un homme noir portant une veste en jean de couleur olive et un jean blanc, s’est détourné de l’élément et a refusé de se déplacer vers l’Ouest avait au moins trois ordres de reculer. je essayé de déplacer le sujet en plaçant ma matraque sur son dos et en le propulsant vers l’avant. J’ai dû le faire une deuxième fois et en même temps donner des ordres pour que le sujet recule. Le sujet s’est alors retourné et s’est rencontré avec Det. J. Johnson, quand il a reçu de nombreuses commandes pour reculer. Le sujet a dit: « tu veux faire ça, tu veux faire ça », quand il a relevé son pantalon et s’est redressé comme pour se battre. Avec l’aide de mon MK9 émis par SET, j’ai délivré deux rafales au sujet et lui ai donné l’ordre de reculer. MK9 s’est avéré efficace et le sujet a traversé la rue, où il est devenu incapable de MK9. Le sujet a reçu de l’eau et du lait peu de temps après pour l’aider à ressentir la sensation de brûlure qu’il a ressentie.

OFFICIER PENSANT HAMMIL

Pendant que j’étais dans la ligne de police, une personne à genoux se tenait devant moi avec une pancarte qui disait: «Black Lives Matter». À ce stade, je n’ai pas été informé par la commande de continuer. J’ai parlé à cette personne et lui ai demandé de quitter la zone et que les officiers viendraient à un moment donné. Cette personne a suivi et s’est éloignée de la ligne de police.

On m’a alors informé que la police commencerait à avancer. Alors que nous avancions, j’ai vu des personnes dans le public chanter des choses similaires comme «Fuck the police». De plus, j’ai observé que bon nombre de ces personnes avaient les poings fermés et étaient agressives. Plusieurs personnes dans la foule avaient également des bouteilles en verre dans les mains, similaires à celles qui nous ont été lancées plus tôt dans la soirée.

Lorsque j’ai reçu l’instruction d’aller de l’avant, une personne s’est précipitée vers la ligne de police. À ce point, J’ai utilisé mon MK9 dans leur direction générale. Cela a incité cette personne à crier sur la police plus qu’elle ne l’était auparavant et a couru dans la foule. Je me suis alors arrêté à la ligne de police et j’ai marché dans les rues comme indiqué.

OFFICIER ALEXANDER PFEIL

Information sur l’officier

31/05/2020 J’étais vêtu de l’uniforme complet de la police de Madison et j’ai travaillé à ma pleine capacité en tant qu’officier de police de Madison. J’ai été affecté à l’équipe spéciale spéciale comme grenadier.

Le 31/05/2020, vers 9h30, les commandants de l’événement ont conseillé aux unités de SET de donner un équipement de protection rigide en raison du réchauffement des manifestants et des projectiles d’impact déployés. Cela s’est produit dans la zone carrée intérieure près de la capitale. J’ai également entendu un officier régner en l’air qu’il avait frappé au visage. Puis j’ai entendu d’autres officiers utiliser avec précision du gaz pour secourir les officiers qui étaient encerclés. J’ai donné mon uniforme de grenadier complet pour y inclure mes rayons de protection et plusieurs grenades fumigènes et CS.

J’étais dirigé par le Lt Radovan et le Sgt Sosoka. J’ai ensuite déménagé à St. et Dayton St. Je suis resté longtemps dans cette position. À un moment donné, un quatre portes rouge a alors tiré environ 15 pieds devant la file d’officiers. Le mâle était un homme noir qui a quitté son véhicule et a laissé le véhicule conduit avec la stéréo tournée vers le haut. Le mâle sur le capot de son véhicule est ensuite monté sur le toit. Le mâle semblait filmer devant notre ligne de police. J’ai entendu plusieurs personnes donner trois ordres verbaux pour que l’homme sorte de son véhicule et remonte dans sa voiture. Plusieurs de ces commandes verbales ont été émises sur un système de sonorisation à partir d’une voiture d’escouade qui se trouvait directement derrière la rangée d’officiers lourds. Le mâle a ignoré ces commandes. À ce point, J’étais à environ 15-20 mètres du mâle. J’utilisais maintenant mon rayon de garde et visais un jet sur le mâle. Ce fut une courte giclée. Le mâle s’est ensuite arrêté au sommet de sa voiture pendant environ une à deux secondes. Le mâle a ensuite sauté sur le capot de sa voiture. J’ai utilisé un jet supplémentaire dans la direction de l’homme. Une équipe d’arrestation a maintenant franchi la file d’attente du personnel en tenue dure en direction de l’homme qui lui a crié de s’arrêter. L’homme a alors commencé à courir du capot de sa voiture et vers le côté conducteur de son véhicule. J’ai ensuite utilisé la poutre de protection pour la troisième fois pour la distribuer dirigée vers l’intérieur du véhicule lorsque les vitres côté passager étaient baissées. Puis j’ai vu l’homme plonger dans son véhicule et les officiers ont pu procéder à l’arrestation. Lorsque cela s’est produit, une mini-fourgonnette de couleur argentée s’est rapprochée très près de l’endroit où les policiers ont procédé à l’arrestation. Je ne pouvais pas voir combien de personnes occupaient cette mini-fourgonnette. Mon attention a été attirée sur lui lorsque le conducteur de la mini-fourgonnette a commencé à se pencher par la fenêtre et à faire un clin d’œil à son klaxon et à crier sur les officiers. Je n’entendais pas ce qui criait directement parce que la corne boitait. J’ai maintenant demandé au conducteur de partir et j’ai donné plusieurs ordres verbaux pour que le conducteur quitte la zone au sommet de mes poumons. Le chauffeur n’a pas suivi. Après avoir donné environ trois commandes verbales, J’ai utilisé un jet de mon faisceau de sécurité dirigé vers le conducteur du véhicule. Le véhicule était à environ 30 à 35 pieds de distance. Dès que j’ai utilisé le jet protecteur, le conducteur a immédiatement conduit. Je ne pense pas que le jet soit entré dans le véhicule ou le conducteur.

Plus tard pendant le quart de travail, j’étais à l’intersection de N Lake St et University Ave. Sous la direction de notre direction, nos officiers se sont déplacés vers le nord sur Lake St et se trouvaient juste au sud de University Ave. J’ai maintenant entendu un homme crier du côté ouest de l’intersection. L’homme s’est approché des officiers et a crié qu’il passerait. Le mâle est allé de l’avant et a ignoré plusieurs directives verbales pour se propager. J’ai maintenant observé une tentative officielle d’utiliser un vaporisateur MK9 OC dirigé contre le mâle. Je me suis rapproché maintenant pour donner des grenades si nécessaire. Dès que le spray MK9 OC a été libéré, il semblait qu’il ne pouvait pas atteindre la personne qui nous avait développés. L’homme a ensuite mis les deux poings dans une situation de boxe et a rapidement aggravé l’officier le plus proche. J’ai maintenant utilisé mon rayon de garde et concentré la seringue sur cette personne qui balançait maintenant ses bras en un coup de poing devant lui alors qu’il marchait vers l’avant. Le faisceau a réussi immédiatement quand il a frappé le mâle et il s’est immédiatement retourné et s’est retiré sur un sprint complet. C’était un mâle noir plus petit, d’environ 20 ans. Étant donné que l’homme se cognait maintenant sur l’avenue University et s’éloignait de la ligne, nous n’avons pas pu procéder à une arrestation.

Ce rapport a été achevé le 2 juin 2020. NFA / cmb

OFFICIER JAMES IMOEHL

Informations introductives

Le 31/05/2020, j’ai été affecté comme grenadier au groupe SET de SGT Doberstein, qui a aidé à la protection des droits civils du Premier Amendement de se rassembler et de participer à la liberté d’expression. J’étais vêtu d’un uniforme SET complet avec des étiquettes de police et un badge clairement visibles. De plus, je portais un masque facial N95, des lunettes claires et des gants de protection.

Au fur et à mesure que la nuit avançait, j’ai entendu à la radio que des projectiles étaient lancés sur des officiers et on leur a ordonné de se procurer un « équipement dur » composé de coussinets de protection pour les jambes, de coussinets pour les bras, d’un écran facial avec écran facial et d’un masque à gaz. De plus, Je portais un gilet grenadier avec trois capsules de gaz CS jetables et deux contenants de fumée pliables. J’avais une capsule OC MK9 et un « Protecto Jet » qui pouvaient distribuer l’OC.

Purification de la collecte violente

Après avoir reçu un équipement de protection supplémentaire et être retourné dans la rue, j’ai entendu des informations envoyées au sujet d’un grand groupe rassemblé par le Capitole. J’ai rejoint un certain nombre d’officiers de la SET parce que ce groupe a reçu des ordres verbaux les informant qu’il s’agissait d’un « rassemblement illégal » et qu’ils devaient « quitter immédiatement la zone ». J’ai observé qu’une partie de la foule se répandait, mais beaucoup d’autres sont restés dans la zone et ont continué à crier des obscénités aux officiers comme « Va te faire foutre! » et « j’espère que vous mourrez! »

Je suis resté derrière la ligne avec les responsables de SET alors qu’ils commençaient à avancer et ont conduit les foules vers le nord-ouest sur l’avenue Wisconsin vers Langdon St. Alors que nous approchions de W Gorham St, j’ai remarqué que des objets nous ont été lancés, y compris des bouteilles contenant des substances inconnues. En raison des actes de la foule violente et agressive, J’ai entendu pendant cette période que le gaz avait été approuvé pour être distribué afin d’éliminer la foule de la zone et d’empêcher une escalade du comportement violent.

Puis j’ai vu qu’un objet a frappé un officier à proximité dans la zone de son aine et l’officier s’est immédiatement penché en s’exclamant: « Uggghhh! » J’ai vu un individu à environ 1 mètre devant moi dont l’attitude semblait être qu’il venait de lancer quelque chose et il a alors commencé à se plier comme s’il allait prendre autre chose à lancer. À ce point, J’ai inséré une capsule avec du gaz CS « Triple Chaser » à l’individu. J’ai observé qu’après la libération du produit chimique, cette personne s’échappe de la zone, tout comme les autres membres du groupe. Je n’ai pas pu identifier l’individu ni enregistrer ses vêtements spécifiques en raison de la nature continue de l’événement.

J’ai continué à rester derrière la ligne avec les responsables de SET alors que la foule était constamment ordonnée de nettoyer les rues et se dirigeait vers Langdon St. Après un certain temps, ce groupe d’officiers est retourné dans la région du Capitole, mais nous avons été informés que des tombereaux ont été incendiés dans la région de Wisconsin Ave et Langdon St.. À ce stade, nous avons commencé à nous diriger vers cette zone, et ce faisant, j’ai vu que les membres de la démarche ont commencé à appuyer une roue déversée qui avait été allumée en feu contre mon groupe et nous a jeté des objets inconnus. À un moment donné, alors que nous continuions à essayer d’éliminer le groupe de la zone, plusieurs individus se sont précipités vers nous et ont commencé à nous lancer des objets derrière la benne à ordures. À ce moment-là, ces personnes étaient à ma portée pour distribuer un conteneur de gaz CS « Triple Chaser » dans leur direction pour les empêcher de continuer à attaquer les officiers autour de moi. Après cela, j’ai vu des membres de ce groupe fuir la région. Encore une fois, je n’ai pas pu identifier les individus ou prendre des notes sur leurs vêtements spécifiques en raison de la nature continue de l’événement.

En raison de ce qui s’est passé, je n’ai pas observé l’heure exacte, mais j’estime mentalement que ces mesures ont eu lieu entre 22h30 et 23h30.

Essayez de fournir un support / correction .

Après mon déploiement de gaz chimique, j’ai cherché dans la zone toute personne qui semblait avoir besoin d’une aide médicale, mais personne n’était laissé dans la zone pour que je puisse offrir de l’aide.

Disposition

Suite aux mesures décrites ci-dessus, je suis resté avec mon peloton, mais je n’ai rencontré aucune situation supplémentaire où il était approprié d’utiliser des munitions chimiques et j’ai pu le faire.

OFFICIER JAVIER LOREDO

Formation et expérience:

Je suis employé comme agent de police pour le service de police de la ville de Madison et je travaille depuis 2003; J’ai été promu au grade de sergent en 2018. Je suis membre de l’équipe des armes spéciales et tactiques du département de police de Madison et je fais partie de l’équipe depuis 2005. Être membre de cette équipe m’a donné l’opportunité de recevoir une formation importante. Plus précisément, j’ai reçu une formation sur les opérations de sauvetage d’otages, le service de recherche, le maniement des armes et le tir. En 2006, j’ai également fréquenté une école de base S.W.A.T de 32 heures fournie par le Northeast Counterdrug Training Center. En 2011, j’ai été certifié instructeur d’armes à feu par le ministère de la Justice du Wisconsin. En 2013, j’ai suivi un cours de coaching tactique de 40 heures organisé par la National Tactical Officer’s Association. 2014 j’ai assisté à un

Cours de tactique d’intervention de 8 heures (P.I.T.) dispensé par la State Patrol Academy. En 2014, j’ai participé à un cours de changement tactique de 40 heures dispensé par Global International et Forced Entry Tactical Training. En 2015, j’ai participé à une recherche avancée de 10 heures pour un certificat de retrait de véhicule pour le Midwest Counterdrug Training Center. En 2017, j’ai suivi un cours de 36 heures sur les techniques tactiques en matière de stupéfiants dispensé par Law Enforcement Training Associates. En 2019, j’ai participé à un cours intensif de 60 heures dispensé par Tced Entry Tactical Training. En 2019, j’ai participé à un cours avancé de dynamitage de 50 heures dispensé par Tactical Training.

De plus, j’ai été formé à identifier les habitudes et les habitudes des personnes qui font du trafic de drogue auprès des membres plus âgés du groupe de travail sur les stupéfiants du comté de Dane. J’ai également participé à environ 114 heures de formation supplémentaire sur les drogues dispensées par des centres de formation qui instruisent les forces de l’ordre. J’ai également reçu une formation spécialisée dans l’identification et les tests sur le terrain des substances contrôlées des maîtres formateurs de DCNTF, qui comprend l’utilisation du système de test de drogue des sacs de terrain.

J’ai également participé à plus de 100 enquêtes sur les drogues à tous les niveaux, y compris la possession, l’utilisation et la vente de substances réglementées, avec de nombreuses arrestations avec ces personnes.

Narration:

Le 31/31/20, j’ai travaillé en tant que superviseur pour l’équipe MPD SWAT. J’étais vêtu de l’uniforme tactique complet du MPD. À cette époque, j’assistais à un briefing avec le personnel du SWAT présent, et nous avons discuté de la protestation prévue. Je faisais partie d’un petit élément SWAT qui a aidé la police à couvrir la manifestation publique au centre-ville de Madison. Il a été informé qu’à cette date, nous fournirions à d’autres unités de police des informations sur le contrôle des quantités. Ce jour était le deuxième jour de suite que je travaillais sur cette mission particulière.

Pour cette opération, j’agirais en ma qualité de chef d’équipe tactique. Le personnel suivant a été affecté à mon équipe pour cette opération:

PO Rene Gonzalez, Justin Nelsen, Nick Clea

Le personnel affecté à cette opération était équipé d’un équipement tactique spécialisé. Nous avons conduit un véhicule de police ordinaire banalisé. Un poste de commandement supervisait également le fonctionnement de l’équipe SWAT travaillant sur l’événement. Ils ont communiqué avec nous par radio soit pour fournir des mises à jour d’informations et / ou pour fournir des instructions. ·

Le département de police de Madison avait également l’équipe spéciale pour les événements (SET) travaillant sur l’événement. Cette équipe est formée pour gérer les événements de contrôle des foules.

À cette date, vers 22 heures, une foule manifestait dans le quartier de State St, dans le centre de Madison. J’ai été informé par radio que plusieurs centaines de personnes participaient à la manifestation. J’ai également été informé par radio que l’humeur de la manifestation était passée d’une émeute pacifique à une émeute destructrice. Nous avons été informés que des groupes de personnes causaient des dommages matériels à des entreprises de la région de State St.

J’ai été informé par radio que la décision avait été prise au commandement de SET de commencer à gérer le soulèvement. L’utilisation de substances chimiques et de munitions avait également été approuvée en raison de la violence et de la destructivité du soulèvement. Le poste de commandement a contacté mon équipe par radio, demandant que nous fournissions une assistance à SET en étant dans une position spécifique dans la rue pour distribuer des munitions chimiques pour guider la rébellion de State St à University Ave via Francis St.

Stratégie d’introduction:

J’ai demandé à notre équipe de se diriger vers l’ouest sur State St. depuis Gilman St. Quand nous l’avons fait, j’ai pu voir un groupe de rebelles marcher de State St. sur South Frances St. On m’a confié la tâche de distribuer des munitions chimiques pour continuer à viser la foule en direction du sud.

Nous nous sommes rapprochés du soulèvement pour pouvoir distribuer des munitions CS à main. Comme je me suis approché et nous avons ralenti notre véhicule, J’ai ouvert ma fenêtre et jeté des munitions CS au sol dans la zone où se trouvait le soulèvement. J’ai vu qu’un des rebelles courait vers les munitions que je venais de lancer, les ramassant et les jetant dans notre direction générale. Pendant ce temps, je me préparais à jeter une autre munition CS. Pendant ce temps, un insurgé avait visiblement jeté une pierre sur notre véhicule de police et brisé la lunette arrière de notre véhicule. À ce stade, j’ai demandé à notre équipe de quitter la région et nous nous sommes dirigés vers l’ouest sur State St.

Très peu de temps après, le poste de commandement nous a informés par radio que d’autres membres du personnel de la SET avaient encore besoin d’aide pour l’émeute à l’intersection de St St. et Lake St. J’ai quitté mon véhicule et j’ai mis des munitions chimiques dans CS en direction du soulèvement pour les éloigner du personnel de la SET dans la zone.

Après avoir livré ces munitions, nous sommes restés dans la région et avons aidé au besoin. Je n’ai plus livré de munitions chimiques ce soir. J’ai terminé ce changement vers 3 h le 6/1/20.

Sgt J Loredo 3642

OFFICIER DAVID BELLE

Mon peloton avait été informé qu’un grand nombre de manifestants avaient commencé à se rassembler dans la région du Wisconsin

Ave. et Mifflin St. De nouvelles mises à jour ont informé que ce groupe de manifestants avait commencé à entourer ses collègues des rues Mifflin et Pinckrey. et avait commencé à leur lancer des projectiles, ainsi que des attaques. En réponse, mon peloton SET s’est déployé dans la région et a formé une ligne dans le bloc 10 de W. Mifflin St. officiers. En raison des actions et du comportement de la foule, la décision a été prise d’effacer la foule dans le bloc 10 de W. Mifflin St. qui s’étaient rassemblés devant notre ligne. Une fois cette décision prise, j’ai pris position devant ma ligne, devant la foule, et tiré mon pong en bois émis par le département. J’ai tenu ce bâton en bois devant moi avec les deux mains placées en haut et en bas du bâton. Mon peloton a reçu l’ordre d’éloigner la foule de la zone de la rue W. Mifflin. en direction de Wisconsin Ave. A cette époque, j’avais commencé à ordonner oralement aux manifestants qui se sont levés et se sont rassemblés devant moi de « reculer et rentrer chez eux! »

Lorsque notre section SET a ordonné à la foule de se disperser, j’ai constaté qu’après ces ordres, de nombreux manifestants sont restés, certains d’entre eux continuant à crier un langage difficile et des menaces de violence. Je me souviens spécifiquement d’un homme debout devant notre ligne de poings serrés et criant: « Je vais prendre soin de toi. » Il convient de noter qu’il était environ 21 h 45, et je savais qu’il y avait un couvre-feu pour la région de Madison dans lequel nous nous trouvions actuellement, qui était en vigueur depuis 21 h 30.

Alors que notre peloton avançait pour disperser la foule, j’ai remarqué qu’un homme noir, âgé d’environ 20-25 ans, mesurant 6’0, avec sa chemise enlevée, s’était tenu devant notre ligne et avait continué à hurler sur les officiers. J’ai noté que ces protestations n’avaient pas répondu aux ordres oraux de moi et d’autres officiers de diffuser et étaient restées en avance sur notre ligne. Alors que la ligne commençait à bouger, je m’avançai. J’ai continué à crier: « Retourne. Rentrez chez vous. « J’ai remarqué que cet homme noir continuait de se tenir devant notre ligne lorsque la distance était fermée et a refusé de reculer. Enfin, à une distance d’environ un pied, j’ai réalisé que l’homme ne suivrait pas l’ordre légal et potentiellement briser notre ligne avancée et révéler des officiers de l’arrière s’il briserait notre ligne. Je savais que cela pourrait mettre en danger mon peloton alors que nous continuions à avancer. Quand j’étais à environ un pied de cet homme, je pour empêcher le mâle de se placer derrière notre ligne, j’ai effectué une manœuvre de « blocage », repoussant le mâle avec la tige de ma matraque pendant que mes mains étaient placées en haut et en bas. J’ai poussé le mâle dans la zone de l’épaule du haut du bras. J’ai remarqué qu’en réponse à une balle, il avait reculé de 1 à 2 mètres lorsque la ligne s’est avancée et s’était déplacé devant un autre officier. J’ai remarqué que cet homme avait alors été arrêté et menotté. Lorsque l’homme a été arrêté, j’ai continué d’avancer avec mon peloton et j’ai continué d’ordonner à la foule de se disperser et de rentrer chez elle.

Mon recours à la force concernant cet incident a été signalé au Sgt. Tieu.

Officier D. Schon # 5577

SERGENT MATT SCHROEDL

INFORMATION DE L’OFFICIER:

Je suis actuellement employé par le service de police de la ville de Madison, où je suis depuis 1997. J’ai été promu au grade de sergent en 2008. Je suis actuellement affecté comme sergent au sein du groupe de travail sur les stupéfiants du comté de Dane. Je suis également membre de l’équipe SWAT du service de police de la ville de Madison et je suis l’un des chefs d’équipe. J’ai été formé à l’utilisation de munitions chimiques pour le service de police de la ville de Madison. J’ai également reçu une formation complémentaire sur les substances chimiques et les projectiles à impact moins fatal, notamment les projectiles de 0,40 mm, l’oléorésine capsicum et les munitions CS.

NARRATION:

Le 31/31/2020, j’ai reçu des informations sur une demande adressée à l’équipe SWAT du département de police de la ville de Madison pour aider à la sécurité lors d’une manifestation de référence contre la mort de George Floyd à Minneapolis, Minnesota. Cette manifestation devait avoir lieu au centre-ville de Madison. Sur la base des événements de la nuit précédente, où la manifestation est devenue violente, où des personnes ont pillé et endommagé des biens, une arme à feu a été volée dans un véhicule de police et notre véhicule blindé a été abattu. Nous avons été invités à participer à la sécurité de cet événement.

Vers 13 heures, j’ai assisté à une séance d’orientation du lieutenant Ostrenga, lieutenant dans le département de police de la ville de Madison. L’équipe SWAT se réfère à nos missions pour cette manifestation. Nos principaux objectifs étaient la sécurité des citoyens et l’application des lois. Après l’examen, nous avons répondu au centre parce qu’un grand nombre de personnes étaient là pour protester. Vers 9h30, un couvre-feu est entré en vigueur pour la zone de l’isthme, compte tenu des émeutes et des violences de la nuit précédente. Vers 1 heure du matin, un grand groupe de manifestants marchait encore autour du Capitole, en violation du couvre-feu. Alors qu’ils marchaient, une petite section du groupe des événements spéciaux les a rejoints. Alors qu’ils apparaissaient autour du quartier du Capitole, près de l’intersection de la rue N. Pinckney, entre l’avenue E. Washington et la rue N. Hamilton, la foule s’est tournée vers les agents. La radio de la police m’a informé que les policiers étaient encerclés et agressés physiquement et ont demandé une aide d’urgence. À ce stade, PO Keys, PO Weberpal, Det. Johnson et moi avons déménagé à une position près de l’intersection de N. Hamilton St. et Pinckney St. Quand nous sommes sortis dans cette zone, j’ai observé que le PO Masterson et le lieutenant. Fiore a commencé à distribuer des munitions chimiques dans le but de disperser la foule et de l’empêcher d’attaquer les officiers. Quand je suis sorti dans la zone, la foule s’est retournée et a commencé à se concentrer sur Cela. Johnson, PO Weberpal et moi. Ils ont commencé à se diriger dans notre direction. Nous avons formé une petite ligne près de l’intersection de N. Hamilton St. et E. Pinckney St. Lorsque le public a commencé à se former, il y avait des centaines d’individus qui se trouvaient à environ 10 pieds à 20 pieds de nous, qui criaient et criaient et étaient très hostiles. Lorsque le groupe s’est concentré sur nous, cela a permis à la pièce SET de sortir du contact avec les manifestants et de donner leurs masques à gaz. Il convient de noter qu’à cette époque, le groupe d’équipes d’événements spéciaux ne disposait d’aucun équipement de protection autre que son uniforme normal. Alors que le public focalisait son attention et se concentrait sur nous, j’ai vu qu’il a commencé à lui lancer des objets, en particulier des pierres et des bouteilles. Johnson, PO Weberpal et I. PO Weberpal ont été frappés dans la peau par l’une des roches. Je ne pensais pas que nous serions en mesure de battre en retraite à ce moment-là parce que la foule avait déjà attaqué des officiers du peloton SET et avait déjà chassé des officiers lorsqu’ils se retiraient. À ce moment là, J’ai sorti une capsule Specie-Heat CS, dans le but de repousser et de répandre la foule, pour les empêcher de nous frapper avec des projectiles tout en demandant des ressources supplémentaires pour aider à évacuer les membres de SET de la région qui n’étaient pas en tenue de protection. J’ai jeté la capsule par le bas et l’ai dirigée vers une zone ouverte du côté de la foule, dans le but de ne frapper personne avec elle, mais suffisamment près pour qu’ils puissent ressentir les effets des munitions et les propager de la zone. Quand j’ai sorti la capsule, le public a immédiatement commencé à reculer, créant une distance entre eux et nous. Ce public est resté très contrarié. J’ai pu déplacer une ligne de peloton SET devant nous qui n’était toujours pas équipée d’un équipement de protection supplémentaire, mais qui était maintenant masquée à gaz. Lorsque la foule est revenue à notre ligne, j’avais demandé des ressources supplémentaires en réponse à notre emplacement qui était en équipement de protection supplémentaire alors que la foule continuait à nous lancer des pierres et des bouteilles. Alors que le public se rapprochait de nouveau et commença à nous lancer des projectiles, J’ai mis une autre capsule avec CS Specie-Heat dans le but de créer la distance entre le public et nous et de les empêcher de nous faire du mal avec leurs projectiles. J’ai jeté à nouveau la capsule par-dessous et j’ai essayé de trouver une zone ouverte sur la foule, encore une fois suffisamment près pour leur faire ressentir les effets, mais je ne les ai pas frappés avec la capsule. Encore une fois, la capsule a fissuré son contenu et, ce faisant, l’une des personnes dans le public a essayé de la ramasser et de la renvoyer dans notre direction générale. PO Weberpal et Det. Johnson a également utilisé des capsules CS, ainsi que des projectiles en mousse de 0,40 mm pour tenter de retenir le public. Cela a duré environ dix minutes avant que du personnel supplémentaire puisse arriver sur notre site avec un équipement de protection supplémentaire. Une fois qu’ils étaient en place, nous pouvions nous retirer de la zone.

Au fil de la nuit, le public a continué à intensifier son comportement. Ils ont commencé à endommager d’autres sociétés immobilières et de pillages. Ils ont commencé à incendier les bennes à ordures et à les traîner dans la rue tout en les pressant contre les policiers. Ils ont également tenté de voler une voiture de police. Pendant l’escalade de leur comportement, j’ai informé le Lt Ostrenga que l’équipe des événements spéciaux avait besoin d’une aide supplémentaire près de State St. et Henry St. Nous nous sommes déplacés pour descendre la rue Langdon, qui aurait été au nord de cet endroit. En descendant Langdon St, j’ai vu de nombreuses bennes à ordures qui étaient au milieu de la rue qui ont brûlé et d’autres débris qui ont essuyé la rue. Nous avons pu naviguer autour de toutes ces nombreuses bennes à ordures éparpillées sur la chaussée, qui brûlaient, pour nous mettre en position alors que la foule continuait de pousser sur State St., vers Lake St. On m’a dit qu’ils avaient cassé de nombreuses fenêtres et tenté de piller différentes entreprises. Quand ils sont sortis dans la région de Lake St, J’ai mis un conteneur avec CS Specie-Heat dans le but de répandre la foule et de les empêcher de continuer à faire des dégâts considérables aux entreprises du couloir State St et de la zone du Library Mall. Après avoir jeté la capsule à l’envers et trouvé une zone ouverte près de l’intersection de State St et Lake St, la foule a explosé, a traversé la bibliothèque et a cessé d’endommager toute propriété dans le voisinage immédiat. À ce moment-là, je suis retourné à notre véhicule et nous avons pu sortir de la zone lorsque des équipes spéciales supplémentaires sont arrivées pour travailler avec le contrôle des foules et disperser le groupe. La foule a continué à endommager des biens et à piller des entreprises dans la zone centrale.

À un moment donné, lors du pillage, le Lt Ostrenga les a informés qu’ils avaient observé une personne sur une vidéo de surveillance qui semblait être le chef du petit groupe de personnes qui ont fait irruption dans les magasins et les ont pillés. Les membres de SET et d’autres membres du personnel du MPD ont tenté de se déplacer vers le poste pour contacter l’individu, alors qu’il sortait de l’une des sociétés après être entré par effraction et pillé avec plusieurs autres personnes. Cette personne a été décrite comme portant un chapeau rouge, que la personne a décollé de sa tête et a finalement porté quand je les ai observés. Le suspect faisait partie d’un grand groupe de personnes se déplaçant dans la région de Gilman St. Nous avons essayé plusieurs fois de naviguer dans la foule pour entrer en contact avec cette personne et l’arrêter. Quand nous l’avons fait, l’individu s’est rendu compte que nous essayions d’arrêter la personne et a commencé à courir dans la zone centrale de State St. À un moment donné, la foule avec laquelle la personne se trouvait a fait la queue devant notre véhicule et a tenté de gêner délibérément notre capacité à l’arrêter. Sur la base des résistances actives des groupes et des obstacles à nos tentatives d’appréhender le suspect Det. Johnson a utilisé un petit spray OC pour éloigner ce groupe de notre chemin afin que nous puissions essayer d’arrêter cette personne. Alors que nous continuions à nous mettre en position pour essayer de contacter cette personne, d’autres membres du groupe ont commencé à lancer des pierres sur notre véhicule. Le. Johnson a distribué une pointe de mousse de 0,40 mm à l’une des personnes qui nous ont lancé une grosse pierre. Cet individu a finalement été battu par le béton mousse et a fui la zone avant de le contacter pour voir s’il avait besoin de soins médicaux. L’individu d’origine pourrait nous éviter avec l’aide du grand groupe. Voyez-le. Rapport de Johnson pour plus de détails sur cet incident.

Vers 22 heures, nous avons été informés que la foule devenait hostile et violente, y compris des dommages matériels, des cambriolages, des pillages et des agressions de policiers avec des projectiles. At one point our CAT team was tasked with supporting a police element at Frances St and State St. The Command Post stated they wanted us to infill behind the crowd at Frances St and State St and to deploy chemical munitions in effort to support the SET Team in pushing the crowd. We then got instructions from an observation post that State St to Frances St was clear to infill. During these operations, I was in full gas mask and helmet.

As we drove down State St towards Frances St from Johnson St, I started seeing more and more persons starting to follow in our direction. Once we got to Frances St and State St, I observed our position was being encircled by rioters shouting vulgar statements and throwing rocks at our vehicle. I was then told by SGT Loredo that it was unsafe to get out of the vehicle to deploy the munitions and we should deploy them while still in the vehicle. I then rolled down the vehicle window, pulled the pin on a CS hand held munition and tossed it out the driver’s side of the vehicle. Once I did this, I heard a loud noise from behind me. I looked back and observed the rear window to be completely broken out. We then left the area.

After that situation, we got information that a contingent of police officers needed support at State St and Lake St and that they were being surrounded. We then drove to Lake St from Langdon St and I observed numerous rioters screaming vulgar statements at police, and throwing projectiles at police officers. Given these actions, I then deployed a CS gas hand held munition by pulling the pin and throwing it into the direction of the assaultive suspects in an attempt to get them to deter their behavior. Once I threw the device, I then observed a suspect to pick it up with a glove and throw it back at our position.

At approximately 9:55 PM, my team of four was given an update about the large crowd that was gathered near the intersection of E Washington Ave and Pinckney  St.  We were updated from the Command Post that a· small number of officers were pinned down by the large crowd in the area near the Old Fashioned  located at  23 N Pinckney St. I was given information via radio that the officers that were pinned down were being hit by members of the crowd and were having objects thrown at them. The team of four that I was with were directed to go to the intersection of N Pinckney St and E Mifflin St to assist the officers that were pinned down.

Upon arrival into the area of N Pinckney St and E Mifflin St, I observed a large crowd of approximately 200-300 people who were yelling and standing directly in front of the small contingent  of officers that were pinned down. I could see objects being thrown toward the officers and as soon as we got out of our vehicle and into position near the intersection we started to have rocks and bottles thrown at us. After being out of our vehicle for approximately 1-2 minutes, I was hit by a rock on my left shin. I observed this rock once it was on the ground and it was about the size of a golf ball. The area on my shin where I was hit by the rock was red and had a bruise around it when I was able to look at it later in the night.  I also observed the subject that threw this rock   at me in the crowd. He is described as a black male, approximately 20-25 years old. He was wearing a light colored t-shirt and had on a red winter hat.

Shortly after being hit by the rock, I observed several more rocks and bottles being thrown in our direction near the intersection. At approximately 10:04 PM, I could see that the group of officers that were pinned down had been able to put their protective gas masks on and the crowd had moved back from them.  At this time, we  were still receiving projectiles being thrown in our direction that the rioters were being more aggressive towards us and our position at the intersection. At this time I removed the pin from my handheld chemical canister and deployed it in the direction of the rioters and more specifically in the direction in front of the subject. who was throwing projectiles in our direction. I deployed this chemical canister based on my based on my training and it was rolling across the ground in front of the crowd. After the deployment of this chemical canister, I observed that the rioters around the area of the canister had moved back away from it.

While still in the area of the intersection of N Pinckney  St and E Mifflin St, I observed  a rioter pick up a chemical canister that had been deployed and throw it back in our direction. This canister was still active and delivering its product when it was thrown back.  I watched as the canister went under our vehicle and continue  to dispense its product. At this time the rioters were still standing about 20-30 feet in front of our location and throwing projectiles in our direction.   We were then joined by a number  of Special Event Team Officers that  had walked to our location to assist. These officers had full protective gear on and were able to relieve us from our position.

Shortly after leaving the area of N Pinckney St and E Mifflin St, my team of four was directed by the Command Post to respond to the intersection of Lake St and State St to assist SET Officers and deliver chemical canisters. More specifically, we were directed to assist by deploying hand held chemical canisters in this area where the rioters were throwing projectiles at officers and were damaging property in the State St area. While we were responding to this area of Lake St, we had to go around several dumpsters that were set on fire and were in the middle of the road on Langdon St.

Once in the area of Lake St and State St, I observed a very large hostile crowd that was continually throwing rocks, bottles, and other objects in our direction. At this time I deployed two hand held chemical canisters in the direction of the ground in front of the crowd. I deployed both of these canisters based on my training and observed as they both landed successfully in front of the crowd and did not strike anyone. Shortly after deploying the chemical canisters, the SET Team arrived at our location from the State St area and we were directed to fall back to our vehicles.

It should be noted that all of the chemical canisters that I deployed during this operational period were department supplied Defense Technology CS.

OFFICER ANTHONY FIORE – DAY ONE

On Saturday, 06/02/2020, starting at approximately 8:00pm, I was assigned to the Special Events Team (SET) and operating in my capacity as the Grenadier Commander. I was assigned Det. Masterson to assist in duties consisting of gathering grenadier munitions and supplies, water, respirator protection equipment, and other supplies that may be needed to assist SET. I and Det. Masterson also self-deployed to numerous high-risk incidents to assisting in resupply, command, or grenadier tasks.

I have been a Madison Police Officer for over 21 years. I have been a member of Special Events Team for approximately 18 years. I have been a grenadier, grenadier supervisor/sergeant, or the grenadier commander for approximately the last 15 years. I have attended training presented on the use of chemical (CS), OC and impact, munitions presented by both the FBI and Defense Technologies.   I have numerous training deployments on all munitions utilized by the SET Grenadier Team.  I have presented and conducted trainings for MPD Grenadiers and oversee all purchasing and munition selections. I was part of the team that wrote and finalized the SOP on SET Grenadiers.  During the course of my service on SET, I have participated in numerous deployments on SET for crowd management and control, to include nearly every Halloween and Mifflin St block party for the last 18 years. As a grenadier and grenadier supervisor, I have had every tool and munition available for that entire period as those utilized by MPD currently. During all of those events, only during the Halloween riots in the early 2000’s were chemical munitions and OC utilized by MPD grenadiers. have advised outside agencies on the use, tactics, and consideration when utilizing grenadiers and chemical/OC  munitions.  I have never seen the level of property damage, projectiles directed at officers,  injuries to officers, and open anger or aggression toward MPD personnel as I have witnessed since Saturday, 5/30, and through the writing of this report.  My deployment,  command, and supervision  of impact, chemical/OC munitions have been consistent with my training and experience, as a direct result or response to violent or assaultive confrontations or to the degree that failure to utilize chemical/OC munitions would have made crowd management/control less safe for citizens and officers.

Upon our arrival in the State St area, I heard multiple reports of officers being targeted by projectiles and had reports of officers injured as a result. At one point, I heard officers at the intersection of State St and Johnson  St advising that officers were receiving projectiles. Upon arrival, I advised Det. Masterson that 40mm exact Impact sponge rounds were authorized if he observed individuals throwing dangerous projectiles at the officers in the area. After resupplying several of the grenadiers on scene, we left the area.

We then heard officers were continuing to be targeted with projectiles.  As we arrived back on scene, I  observed approximately  30 officers in the area and the crowd had grown in size.  I also noted that Dispatch  was advising that fires were being lit in the area and did see smoke begin to rise just behind the first several rows of protesters. The crowd consisted of approximately 50 or more protesters, and although they were verbally engaging officers, the majority of the crowd was maintaining a safe distance from the officers. I observed several projectiles land in the area around the officers and observed that most of these were fist­  sized or larger pieces of concrete or rocks. Those choosing to engage in throwing projectiles typically did so at distance and behind the crowd that was peacefully protesting. Given the active fire, dangerous projectiles, unblocked traffic I made the determination that we were going to attempt to move the crowd out of the area of the fire until it could be extinguished. As no other Lieutenant or Commander was on scene, I assumed command and advised the group of officers on the line for Johnson/State, on the east-side of the intersection  of our goals and not to attempt to move the crowd until I had an opportunity to give audible warnings. I then made at least 5 verbal warnings utilizing my squad PA system, advising the crowd that due to the fire and projectiles they would need to disperse.  In addition, I advised that chemical munitions may be deployed and that the use of impact munitions could be used if projectiles continued to be thrown at the officers. As I was making these announcements, my vehicle was struck with no less than 3 heavy/hard projectiles thrown from  the area of the parking lot adjacent to the church located on W Johnson  St.  Officers in the immediate  area also reported additional projectiles.  After my verbal warning, I observed a noticeable difference in the density  of the crowd in question and that numerous persons were heading my warning to disperse from this immediate area. I observed the fire was still active, officers were keeping vehicle traffic from the crowd, and officers continued to receive projectiles; I made the determination  to immediately  move the crowd beyond the active fire and attempt to disperse those throwing projectiles  at officers.  I did not feel at any point officers could  safely disengage without presenting an unreasonable risk to those occupying the roadway or to the officers. I retrieved a protectojet containing OC that disperses in an aerosolized fashion. I have had hundreds of reps deploying the protectojets in both training and crowd control situations. I am familiar with the effects of aerosolized OC/Pepper Spray and know that the effects are greatly diminished  as soon as individuals move into areas of fresh air. Decon responsibilities or needs are greatly diminished for aerosolized OC, and I have never observed any individual or officer display injuries or lasting discomfort as a result of its use. I deployed the protectojet consistent with my training and noted an immediate effect on the group. The OC was not directed at any specific individual. This effect allowed the officers to being to move the crowd back without physical confrontation. I directed the line to continue to move forward until the point that we were beyond the items that were actively burning. I utilized approximately 4 – 5 one-second bursts, and immediately ceased when I observed it have the desired effect of moving the crowd back away from the officers. Officers were   then able to manually put most of the fire out. I observed approximately 8 – 1O plastic (petroleum-based) trash bins had been moved out in to the roadway, either to obstruct traffic or officers or to use as additional burning material.  I then directed, and assisted in, moving those items towards the State St area so that when we  moved the line back they would be behind our line and could not be used further by the crowd. At that point, I directed the line to move back towards State St, but maintain a position that we could safely block vehicle  traffic and protect officers from additional projectiles.

I remained in command of this immediate area until my presence was no longer needed.

OFFICER ANTHONY FIORE – DAY TWO

Sunday, 6/1/2020

On Sunday, 6/1/2020, I continued to serve in my capacity as the Grenadier Commander for the Special Events Team.

During our duties, I heard several radio transmissions  from officers located at/near the intersection  of N Pinkney and E Mifflin St, specifically by the “Old Fashion,” a restaurant in that area. Officers described by “surrounded” by a hostile crowd, that one officer had been “punched in the face,” and that they needed “immediate assistance.” Det. Masterson and I responded to the area on Pinkney St from the area of E Washington Ave. I could see a crowd of approximately several hundred persons densely convened in the area directly in front of the “Old Fashion” restaurant. I have received no information that the officers that had been surrounded were out of harm’s way, or that the violent behavior towards them had ceased. In my 21-year experience, I have never been involved in a situation that more clearly presented an immediate and escalating risk to officers, or the potential for escalating use of force by those officers that had described themselves as being surrounded. I immediately exited my vehicle and deployed a CS ‘Specie-Heat’ canister towards the crowd. I observed the canister successfully deploy and immediately deployed a second to provide additional  CS coverage to the area. I believe one of the canisters had been picked up and thrown back in our general direction, however, the CS deployment from the canister continued and wind-conditions allowed for the CS to continue to drift into the desired area. As the crowd dispersed and to allow for the CS coverage to prevent the crowd from re-convening in that immediate area, I threw a third canister into the area of the capitol lawn to provide a wider corridor of CS coverage. As the CS dispersed, I could see that the vast majority of the crowd had dispersed, that the officers appeared to be out of imminent threat, and that only non-violent or confrontational citizens were remaining in the area.

During my training and experience highlighted earlier in my report, I have deployed no less than 50 CS canisters. I have been exposed to CS gas on no less than a dozen occasions. I know the effects of CS, or tear-gas, are immediately and significantly reduced as soon as individuals find themselves in fresh air. I know the effects to be generally mild, causing irritation to the mucus membranes and eyes, and have no lasting effect. In my career, I was aware of only 1 other situation requiring the use of CS, and that was the first Halloween riot in early 2000s.

As part of this continuing event, I became aware that a line was being formed on Wisconsin Ave to attempt to move the crowd to the State St area.  Det. Masterson and I proceeded  to that area to provide any assistance we could. I also heard on the radio that officers were continuing to receive projectiles in this area.  As we  arrived, we followed the line of officers in my vehicle until the line stopped near the intersection with Dayton St. As I approached the line, I observed that the crowd of several hundred were situated generally  across the  street on Wisconsin Ave. I observed several projectiles land near me and observed them to be approximately baseball-sized rocks or concrete. At that time, Lt Zanders approached me and said he had been struck in the head/helmet area and it felt like he was “bleeding from the head.” I continued to see and hear projectiles in the immediate area of officers.  I felt that to effectively move the crowd back away from officers, continue to  disperse the crowd and move those who would throw projectiles at officers at a greater distance, I deployed 4 40mm Skat CS rounds. Skat CS rounds are 40mm canisters that contain 4 mini-canisters of CS. These mini­ canisters are about the size/weight of tealight candles and dispense a relatively small amount of CS. The Skat rounds can be safely ‘direct fired’ at individuals without causing serious injury. However, consistent with our training, the Skat rounds were “skip fired” at the crowd, meaning they are directed to impact approximately 10-15 feet in front of the crowd; if they are to strike anyone directly, they would do so generally  in the shin  area. This skip fire also allows a great deal of the energy to be dispersed before they reach the crowd. All for rounds were fired to different areas of the crowd. The report of the deployment and CS immediately dispersed the crowd and caused the vast majority of projectile throwing to cease. I did not observe any of the mini­ canisters directly impact anyone, and I did not fire any of the Skat rounds with the intent of targeting any one individual. As soon as I observed the crowd dispersing, I ceased any other deployments of the Skat rounds.

In my experience, the Skat round was the proper munition to use in this situation, had the immediate and desired effect, had no adverse impact on any of the crowd members, and did not cause and injuries.

For the remainder of the evening, I continued to accompany several different clearing elements, but took no additional direct action or force.

OFFICER ANTHONY FIORE – DAY THREE

On Monday, 6/2/2020, I was assigned to lead the primary clearing element down State St. Prior to moving, we had been advised that subjects had been observed attempting to light “Molotov Cocktails,” several reports of assaults involving bats, golf clubs, 2x4s and a “pry bar”, in the general State St area. I formed a clearing team on Carroll St at W Washington. I had personnel from Madison PD, Dane Co Sheriff, State Patrol, Columbia Co Sheriff, Sauk County Sheriff, and National Guard. I advised the clearing teams of my decision to bypass the protesters at the top of State St and the Capitol Square as they appeared to be peacefully gathered and only verbally engaging officers from a distance. I was contacted by an approximately 25-year-old female who  advised me she was one of the organizers of the protest and that she wanted to borrow my bullhorn to advise the people with her protest that their protest activity was over, they should go home, and that if they remained   in the area, they could be arrested. I advised her we had no intention of clearing those gathered with the  officers involved and thanked us repeatedly for allowing them to gather and leave without police involvement.

I did make several attempts to make a verbal announcement for those who had gathered, however, was advised by the officers immediately  in our group that the bullhorn was not transmitting  loud enough to be heard. I made several attempts, attempted to adjust the settings, removed my gasmask to speak directly into the microphone,  but nothing was successful. I instructed the combined team to begin moving down State St. As we reached the 100 block of State St, I could see approximately 20 persons directly in front of us and could see, hear and had reported to me, projectiles falling in the immediate area of officers. I requested permission  to use “gas” to move the crowd away from us and was advised by the CP to attempt verbal warnings first. I again tried to do so without success. I continued to have the teams moving forward, however, we continued to be assaulted with projectiles. At this point, officers had not deployed any gas, impact, or chemical munitions.  We had not arrested anyone, nor come into physical contact with anyone. I again asked permission from the CP to deploy gas to move the crowd away from us to avoid physical confrontations with the crowd. We were repeatedly advised by the CP that additional damage was occurring down State St and to expedite our response.  I felt that if we moved faster,  we would have caught those in the immediate area and the likelihood of physical force would have increased greatly.  Shortly after my second request to deploy gas, I was advised  by the CP that we could deploy gas if we had attempted to give verbal warnings, which I had on at least 1O occasions. At that point, I observed  several grenadiers  within the various teams deploy different gas munitions. This had an immediate impact, and I felt that deployment of gas stopped nearly immediately  after the crowd began to disperse. We were then able to deploy all the way to the 500-600 blocks of State St  without significant interference. During this deployment, I made the determination to have the National Guard serve as our rear-guard, believing that not many people would remain in the State St area. However, once we began to move away from the intersection of State St and Gilman St, with the National Guard remaining, it was clear that crowds were confronting them. I advised Det. Masterson to join the National Guard and provide any assistance needed. Once the 500-600 blocks.of State St were secure, we made another small move to the  also secure the 400 block of State St.

I was then requested by the CP to have officers move to the area of Riley’s Liquor as looting was being reported. I moved a small team to that area as well.

I had units continue to secure these areas until they were relieved by the CP.

Lt. A. Fiore #2864

OFFICER CHRISTOPHER MASTERSON – DAY ONE

On Saturday May 30th I was called into work through a Madison Police Department “All call” and arrived around 7:30pm where I was assigned to Lt T. Fiore and the SET munitions vehicle. My assignment was to deploy in the area of the protests and resupply and provide grenadier support for those assigned to the front lines. Throughout my shift I was wearing the full standard MPD uniform with an external vest carrier, if we were in an area where there was a potential for projectiles I wore a blue hard helmet on my head. There were points at night that I had to wear a full faced gas mask due to the release of CS gas (tear gas) and OC or pepper spray.

At approximately 8:30pm I responded to the bottom of 200 State St to  provide  additional  chemical  munitions  to the grenadier assigned to the group. As I  was doing so officers  reported  that  rocks were currently  being thrown and that a helmet face shield had been broken because of the rocks being thrown. Lt Fiore told me to move to  the line and address those throwing rocks at the officers. As I approached  the line I  observed  rocks varying  in size from golf balls to baseballs laying on the ground. I stood  next to the Noodles  building and asked the  officer standing there where the rocks were being thrown from. As the officer pointed out the parking lot I could see 10 people there in the lot across the street and  one of them was making  a throwing  motion.  Shortly  afterwards  I heard the rock land just past the line of officers, I noted it was a rock similar to the others laying on the ground nearby.

I know that rocks of that size being thrown in the manner  that they were was a danger to  the officers,  even when they wear protective SET hard gear. The gear does not completely envelope  the officer,  it only covers the chest, head, back and legs of the officers. There are numerous areas that the equipment cannot cover and still allow the officers to move freely. I believe a rock, varying in size from a golf ball to a baseball, were to hit the officer in an unprotected area it could cause  a broken bones,  large lacerations,  contusions  or other  injuries.  If the rock struck the officers helmet it could; and on later dates did, cause head injuries. Based on these observations I believed that these subjects behavior was both assaultive and violent and that they were not stopping their behavior  as the officers stood still at the end of the street  protecting  all of the officers that were  located  in the 200  block of State St.

After the first rock landed behind me I confirmed that I had loaded a 40mm eXact  iMpact foam round into  my singe 40mm launder. I moved to the front of the line and looked into the parking lot to the north of my location, across Johnson St. As I did so I noted that some people began to  run away, I  believe that they had seen me raise  my 40MM launcher and it in their direction at a low ready. I observed  a white male approximately  100ft from me in the parking with brown hair in his 20’s make another throwing motion that I would describe as similar to an outfielder in baseball throwing the ball to the catcher. The subject took a running start and the throwing motion indicated that he was trying to throw this as hard as possible. A few seconds later the rock again landed  near the line. I could not fire at the subject at this point as there was traffic still moving on Johnson St. After the traffic cleared I  could again see the subject and that there was some sort  of wall behind the subject.  I  noted that there were others that were  near the subject  throwing,  but none behind him. I saw that the traffic was stopped at the light on State St. and focused on the rock throwers in the parking lot.

I saw the same subject seen throwing rocks before begin to run forward with the same throwing motion. Based on  my previous observations and current one, I believed that the subject intended to  again throw a rock with the intention of hitting an officer with it. I brought  up the 40mm launcher  and  placed the subject’s  stomach  in my sight, knowing that at the distance the subject was the round would strike closer to the top of his thigh, I fired the round with the intent of ceasing the subjects throwing of the rock. As I fired it appeared as the subjects throwing motion was cut short, from the distance we were at I could not see where the 40mm round struck but based on his throw cut short I believe that the round struck the subject. The subject then ran back to  the short  wall that  was behind him, climbed over it and I lost sight of him.

I reloaded the launcher with another eXact iMpact round as another subject threw a rock from about 30 feet to the north east of the  last person. This individual appeared  to  be a  black male wearing  a backpack.   When I  brought the 40mm launcher up to  target  the suspect thrower  he began to  run north east away from our location.  As he did so he stopped a few times and  bladed  his stance as if he were  going to  throw  a rock  but  never  did.  He continued to run out of the range of the 40mm impact round  distance.  I  noted  that there was no one left in the parking  lot areas and there were no additional incoming rocks. I returned  to  the munitions  vehicle  and Lt  Fiore  and I continued down State St to resupply other grenadiers.

OFFICER CHRISTOPHER MASTERSON – DAY TWO

On Sunday May 31st I was again assigned to Lt T. Fiore and the SET munitions vehicle. My assignment was to deploy in the area of the protests and to both resupply and provide grenadier support for those assigned to the front lines. Throughout my shift I was wearing the full standard MPD uniform with an external vest carrier, ifwe were in an area where there was a potential for projectiles I wore a blue hard helmet on my head. There were points at night that I had to wear a full faced gas mask due to the release of CS gas (tear gas) and OC or pepper spray.

At approximately 10:00PM Lt Fiore and I were out driving in the downtown area when we heard deputies  calling out that they were surrounded and being assaulted by a crowd. We heard over the radio that they were being surrounded and a deputy had been punched in the face. The deputies advised that they were in front of the Old Fashioned restaurant. Lt Fiore and I pulled up to the intersection of East Washington Ave and Pinckney St and stopped our munitions car. We saw Sgt Loredo  and  his SWAT response  team pull up behind  us.  Lt Fiore and I saw the crowd still gathered around the Old Fashioned business. We were still unable to see the deputies. At this point because we had no other options to move the crowd Lt  Fiore threw  a CS canister.  See his report. I stayed next to Lt Fiore armed with a 40mm Less Lethal launcher loaded with an eXact iMpact round. I saw immediately after Lt Fiore threw his first canister  a person that I believed  was a male based  on his build reached  down and threw the canister back at us, the canister landed off to our side.

It should be noted that the canister Lt Fiore threw was a metal container that weighs approximately 1-2 pounds. It becomes extremely hot after being ignited to the point it will burn human skin on contact after a short time. When these canisters are thrown into  a crowd  by SET members they are intentionally  aimed  and thrown away from people to avoid hitting anyone, due to the propensity of injured if struck by the device.

Lt Fiore indicated that he was throwing another device so I continued to stand nearby. When he threw the device towards the crowd it landed approximately 50-100 feet from the crowd. I saw the CS canister ignite and begin to disperse CS. I observed a person that appeared to  be the same person that previously  had thrown the  CS canister, run towards the device as before reach for the canister when it was on the ground. As soon as the subject did so I believed, based on the last canister being thrown towards us moment earlier, that this canister would be as well. I brought up my 40mm launcher and  aimed  at the side of the subject’s thigh because he was standing in a bladed stance as he reached for the device, another indication that he was attempting to throw the device. I  deployed  1 round to stop him from throwing it back at us. The round  appeared  effective  in that  the canister  did  not  get thrown all the way back towards us. The subject ran  back into  the crowd  that was off to the sidewalk  on the city side of the street. Lt Fiore threw one last device and  someone  again ran towards  the device  but they never attempted to pick it up.

We stayed on scene after the crowd had dispersed. No one reported any injuries to myself or the officers that we were with. We observed the crowd move down Pinckney St towards Mifflin St and then towards Wisconsin Ave. We then proceeded to the corner of Pinkney St and Mifflin St and stood by for further orders.

A short while later Lt Fiore and I responded  to the intersection  of Wisconsin and Mifflin where a line formed  and the team began to push the protestors down Wisconsin  towards Langdon  St.  Lt  Fiore and I  had the munition vehicle 25-50ft behind the line.  From our position  we could  see rocks and other  objects continuing  to  be thrown by the crowd.  At various times I observed  officers  on the line  getting hit with those objects.  It  was around this time that I was standing near observed Lt  H. Zanders  get  hit with an object  thrown  by someone  in the crowd.  I was approximately 5 feet from him when his head snapped back and to the side. I went over to him and he made a comment about his head bleeding. Shortly after that gas was deployed on the crowd and our team began to move forward on Wisconsin towards Langdon St.  As we moved  forward I threw approximately  3 CS Speed Heat canisters towards the crowd in an attempt to  move them back.  I  noted  that  all of my canisters  landed  on the ground near the protesting group. I observed numerous officers getting  hit with rocks  and  other  objects as we moved up the hill.  I helped  one officer  back away from the line after  he was hit in the groin who was hit with a rock. I could see grenadiers up and down the line throwing gas canister and people attempting to throw the gas canister back at the officers or using a traffic cone in an attempt to cover the gas canister, which is a method  used  in an attempt to defeat the gas.

As we made our way up Wisconsin Ave our line stopped just before Gilman St. as we did this the National Guard troops stationed on the far left side of the line started to take projectiles again. I could hear the shields they were carrying getting hit with projectiles from the crowd and I could see rocks landing behind my position. I heard a nearby grenadier call out that he was throwing gas canister, he was 5 feet to my left. I observed a white male run forward from the crowd as soon as the gas landed and  attempt to  pick it up the canister.  I observed  him run forward, stop with his left foot forward in a 45 degree bladed stance and  bend over I had a clear view of both his right and left legs. I believed the subject was attempting to pick up the canister to throw it back at the officers and myself on the line. The subject was 30-50 feet from the line when he did so. I came to  the front  of the line and raised my 40mm launcher and right as the subject picked  up the canister  that I believed  he was going to  throw based on his body positioning I fired an eXact iMpact round in the right hamstring of the subject  in an attempt to stop his from throwing it. We were close enough that I saw the round strike his leg. Immediately after my round struck I observed another impact round fired by a non-MPD  grenadier  strike the subject  in his buttocks. The subject dropped the canister jumped up  and ran  back towards  Langdon  St and the crowd.  I  did  not  see that subject again.

We continued to push to Langdon St where we stopped.  We turned around  on the top of Langdon St and  made our way back down Wisconsin Ave to Mifflin St again where we stood by. When the Air National Guard troops were picked up by the busses and left for the night we made our way down to the 100-200 blocks of State St to resupply them with munitions. While we were there with them we were advised that calls were coming in of a dumpster fires near Gorham on Wisconsin Ave. Lt Fiore and I headed back to that location to again provide grenadier support and resupply grenadiers.

Once we arrived and began to follow the line on Wisconsin I could see one dumpster fully engulfed in flames in the middle of Wisconsin Ave. Our line began to  move forward when I observed  a white male approximately  20 years old pushing a  metal dumpster  on wheels  that  was fully engulfed  towards  the line of officers.  There were numerous officers that were in direct line of the dumpster  and  it looked like the subject pushing  it was gaining speed. It was my belief at that moment that the subject was attempting to  harm officers  by the use  of a very large and heavy object and with fire. Both the size and fire could easily cause injury or death to the officers if they were unable for whatever reason to get out of the way of the dumpster. The subject was alone and separated  from the crowd approximately 200 feet. When he moved to within 75ft of our location I deployed  a 40mm eXact  iMpact round and his stomach  area, with the intent  on stopping  his violent  behavior.  Due to  smoke  and my gas mask I was unable to see if the round  struck the subject  but  he did  continue  for a few more steps to  push the dumpster until he stopped and sprinted back towards the crowd.

We continued to move forward and I stayed on the left side of the line as we moved. We continued to take more projectiles from the crowd and I continued to hear rocks hitting shields and officers stepping back as they got hit with projectiles. I noted that there were again rocks on the ground that varied in size from quarters to softball size chunks.

Once back on the line I observed an individual standing under a tree near 512 Wisconsin Ave. I observed the individual as the line move forward continue to throw projectiles at the line. Based on the location of the officer getting hit with a rock causing injury as well as others reports rocks hitting  them I  believed  that  this was the subject throwing the rocks. There was some sort of bush or shrub directly behind the subject  and they would  step out from the tree they were  using as cover to  throw.  There was no one standing  immediately  next to  or behind this individual. Our line had to stop at one point and I moved to the side closest to the rock thrower. When the individual stepped out from behind the tree in a bladed  stance and pulled  his/her  arm back,  as if to throw something, I deployed a 40mm eXact iMpact munition. I aimed for his upper thigh area and deployed 1 round.

Due to how dark it was under the tree and the subject  wearing dark clothing I was not  only unable to  see gender or race, I was also unable to see if the round struck the subject. The subject ran backwards  past the bushes or shrubs and I lost sight of him.

As we continued our push up Wisconsin Ave I threw approximately  3  CS Speed Heat canisters towards  the crowd at different points in our move up Wisconsin Ave towards Langdon St. Throughout the entire time I could hear projectiles, mostly rocks, landing near our line or hitting the shields being carried by officers. All of my canisters landed just short of the crowd to avoid hitting anyone with it while allowing it to  be as close to  the group as  possible to disperse the crowd. It should be noted that when I threw  my first canister near  Gorham  St I pulled the pin and held the spoon in. This should have allowed me to hold the canister indefinitely until the spoon came off. However, shortly after I pulled the pin the canister ignited and I was forced to throw it. I was able to do so safely towards an area where the group was still close to officers and not moving  back,  however,  I  did burn my right index finger.

As we made our way to the top of Wisconsin I was on the left side of the line standing behind the Wi Air National Guard. While doing so I was continuing to hear rocks hit shields and bounce off the ground  nearby.  There were fires both in front of us being lit and fully engulfed dumpsters littering the street. As I  looked  around  the building on the southwest side of the intersection I observed 50-100 people scattered around parked vehicles and a fully engulfed dumper. Further down the street I could see smaller fires that were just being started by the group.

I observed a gas canister thrown  towards the crowd  and  land  short  of them by 15-20 feet.  The canister  was approx. 40-50 feet from the front of the line. I  observed  a black male approximately  20 years old with a red or orange shirt run from the crowd towards  the gas canister.  Based  on the  repeated  attempts  of subjects to  throw these canisters back at officers and this subject running from the crowd  and towards  the canister,  as opposed  to away from it like a majority of the crowd, I believed that he was going to ,throw this back towards the line in an attempt to hurt the officers with the heat of the canister  or the mass of the thrown object.  As he did so I  made my way to the front of the line and brought my 40mm launcher up to target the subject’s lower half of his body; I continued to watch him as he slowed  at the gas canister which was ignited and  producing gas/smoke.  I watched as he stopped and  began to reach down towards the canister.  I  noted that  his stance was bladed  towards the. crowd, and that his left side was somewhat  facing me.  As the subject  reached for the canister  I targeted his left  buttocks and thigh.  I  noted that directly behind him from my perspective  was a car and the crowd  was .not near him.  As soon as I saw the canister move because of the subject was picking it up, I deployed the 40mm eXact iMpact round. The round was immediately effective as the round struck the subject in the buttocks  area.  I  observe the subject  jump and turn to  run,  leaving the gas on the ground.  I did observe the individual reach back and place a hand on his buttocks area where the 40mm round had struck. The subject continued to run towards the crowd and disappeared into the crowd. I did not see that individual again.

We continued down Langdon St towards Lake St. During this time we continued to have rocks and other objects thrown at officers and myself by the crowd, as I heard them hitting the concrete around us and the shields and protective gear carried and worn by officers. We passed numerous fires started by the crowd to include dumpsters, trashcans, round wood poster boards on the corner of streets and other unidentified flammable objects. I continued to watch as other MPD officers threw gas canisters and grenadiers from other law enforcement agencies shot gas from their 40mm launchers with the intent to continue to move the crowd down the street and slow the creation of fires.

Around 222 Langdon St I encountered a subject that I observed throwing rocks or other projectiles and hiding behind cars on the left side of the street. He was a white male, blonde hair and wearing a light colored shirt.

Again, as all subjects who I had thus far deployed the 40mm impact round at, I believed that this subject presented a threat to the officers when he chose to throw projectiles at officers. As stated previously, the officers may have been wearing protective gear and may have been carrying shields but those protective items help to prevent injuries but as previously shown, they are not perfect. These hard projectiles could slip in between protective seams or articulating joints of the gear causing injuries such as (but not limited to) lacerations, contusions, broken bones, concussions or other soft tissue injuries. Specifically the canisters that were being used ignite and burn at extremely high temperatures in order to disperse the chemical agent. Just touching one of these canisters can cause burns to a subject’s skin.

I observed this individual move from behind a vehicle and  run towards the center  of the street where I observed  a gas canister emitting gas.  The canister was approximately  75feet  in front of our line with a dumpster  directly behind it.  I saw the individual quickly stop and reach down to  grab something  off the ground.  I  noted that his stance was bladed, similar to  the stance that  most  people  use to  throw  something.  His left foot  was facing our line, his shoulders were bladed and I saw him lean away from the line.  As the subject  began to  throw the projectile I aimed for the upper thigh of the subject. As I deployed the eXact  iMpact  round from my 40mm launcher the subject threw the projectile. I heard a clear thud of the round hit the engulfed  dumpster  10-1Sfeet  behind  the subject, indicating  that the round  missed the subject  and hit the dumpster. The subject  then ran back to  the area that he can come from and continued running towards the crowd. I saw that the canister was thrown in the lines general direction but did not see it land.

We continued to move down Langdon St and shortly after I fired my impact round I saw a deputy launch a 40mm round further up ahead of the crowd on Langdon St past Frances St. I am unsure if the round caused the crowd to move down Frances to State St or the crowd have voluntarily chosen to go down Frances St. We continued to follow this group and they broke through the windows of Brats in the 600 block of State St and then the UW book store in the 700 block of State St.

OFFICER CHRISTOPHER MASTERSON – DAY THREE

On Monday June 1st I was again assigned to the SET munitions vehicle, on this date with Madison Police Officer James Imoehl. My assignment was to deploy in the  area of the  protests  and  to  both  resupply and  provide grenadier support for those assigned to the front lines. Throughout my shift I was wearing the full standard MPD uniform with an external vest carrier, ifwe were in an area where there was a potential for projectiles.I wore a blue hard helmet on my head. There were points  at night  that I had to  wear a full faced  gas mask due to  the release of CS gas (tear gas) and OC or pepper spray.

At approximately  2am on June 2nd  there was a line formed  at State St and the square.  The line moved  quickly down State St towards the 500-600 blocks. As we were driving by I could see that almost every business that we drove by it they did not have  their windows  boarded  up they were smashed  and there  was glass on the sidewalk. As we made it into the 400 block of State St Officer Imoehl and I were still in our munitions vehicle and near the  rear of the group moving down State St. The only people behind  our vehicle  protecting the flank of the line were  the Wi National Guard (WiNG). As we moved into the 500 block of State St Lt Fiore ordered Officer Imoehl and myself to stop and deploy with the WiNG as their grenadier support as they did not have any.

I exited the vehicle and was able to  get a WiNG soldier to sit in our munitions vehicle to  ensure that it was  protected.  Due to noise and radio traffic I  had not heard  if CS gas had  been approved  by the CP to  be deployed. I called out on the radio to permission to deploy the gas as I noted that the crowd coming towards the WiNG was growing in size and they looked agitated. There were individuals that were walking  at a faster pace, almost  hoping up and down screaming and pointing at the WiNG soldiers standing in the line.  I was unable to hear specifically  what was being said but facial features and body language made me believe they were angry or upset. As I stood behind the line ofWiNG I heard the·CP say that gas was approved but only after verbal warnings if possible.

Almost as I heard the CP authorizing gas over the radio  a  large glass bottle that I believed  was a 1.75L “handle” style bottle filled with a liquid flew just over the head of the soldiers in the line and crashed to my left on the road shattering on the ground. This size of bottle, even with protective gear, can cause  serious  bodily  injury due to  its size and weight but also the shattering glass can cause lacerations or of it were to get into  someone’s  eyes could cause serious injury or even cause someone to lose their sight. Based on these concerns  that the  group had thrown and may continue to throw these large objects, I removed the pin from the CS Speed Heat  canister  and threw  it to the front of the crowd. I saw the canister ignite and then begin dispersing gas.

I observed a male run up to the front of the group and pick up the gas canister and throw it towards where we were standing. I did not see how it landed in its final position but it was directly in the middle of the line at our feet. I still had my 40mm launcher and an eXact iMpact round in it. I moved back to the front of the line and I observed Officer Imoehl throw a gas canister. When it landed a subject moved towards it from the crowd, due to other gas in the area I could not clearly make out gender or race. I did observe the individual attempt to pick up the canister. Due to the 2 pervious canisters being thrown back towards the line I believed that this subject was attempting to do so as well. I observed that they were mostly alone and the rest of the crowd was back a significant distance. I moved to the front of the line and aimed at the lower part of the subjects thighs. When the subject reached down in an attempt to pick it up I deployed the impact round. I  did not see the results  because almost immediately after I shot I took a deep breath and inhaled CS gas. It completely filled my gas mask and I moved laterally away from the where I was standing I continued to be unable to see. Once off to the side I burped  my mask and was able to see again.

When I looked back at where I had been standing so I observed a gas canister that I would have been standing directly over. With the canisters being thrown back, the crowd still close to the line and projectiles still landing around my position, I returned to the munitions vehicle and retrieved 4 x 40MM SKAT CS rounds. These rounds when fired out of the 40MM launcher fly a short distance  and  break into  three smaller pieces approximately the size of a tea candle and ignite dispersing CS gas.

I returned  back to  the line and made my way to the front.   The crowd  was approximately 50ft in front of the line. I brought up my 40MM launcher and deployed 4 x 40MM SKAT CS rounds. Each round was aimed and fired  at  the ground. My aim point was 15-20ft in front of the closest person in the crowd. I did not specifically target individuals, rather point in the crowd that seemed closer to our line. The 4 rounds were successful in moving the crowd back over 100 feet and dispersing them in all directions. At this point I stopped and waited for further commands as what was left of the crowd was too far away to successfully throw rocks at the soldiers.

Approximately 30 minutes later I was assigned  to  again support the WiNG move  down Broom St to  Riley’s Liquor as there were active reports of looting inside the business. We moved to the intersection of Broom St and Gorham St. We did not encounter and issues as we moved to  that location.  After we noted no  issues  Officer Imoehl and I began to leave when Capt. Tye, who was still at the intersection called us back because the soldiers there were taking projectiles from further down broom near Johnson St.

When I returned I noted that the area that the projectiles were being thrown from was on the left side of the street near the automotive store. It was at the edge of the range for the 40MM impact rounds and it would be too dark because of tree coverage to safely identify and deploy the impact rounds against. However,  given that as I stood there I could see the clear outline of a multiple individuals wearing dark clothing somewhat backlit throwing projectiles that landed on the ground near my location  behind the soldiers on the line, these individuals  were a danger to the soldiers on the line. I noted that there was no traffic on Broom St and I waited for a break in traffic. Once I had that opportunity paired with an individual making a throwing motion I deployed a 40MM SKAT CS round. Due to the distance, approximately 75-100  yards I  aimed  for a spot  on the ground  that I  could  see was clear of people 25-30 feet in front of the group. The round skipped and landed near the group causing them to disperse. There were no additional projectiles thrown at the soldiers.

OFFICER MICHAEL DAVENPORT

On 5/31/2020 at approximately 22:30 in the 10 block of W. Mifflin Street between Wisconsin and State Street, I was dressed in full MPD Military  style Special Events Team (SET) uniform,  including  full Hard Gear including gas mask, face shield and protective armor, which prominently displays Police as well as having MPD style patches affixed to it.

At this time, the SET tean:i as well as the Wisconsin National Guard and other agencies had formed a line on  the capital square. Announcements had been given at this time stating that it was an unlawful assembly, and  that the crowd was ordered to disperse. The crowd did not listen to or obey these orders at this time. The decision had been made by the command post that the line was to begin to push to safely  disperse the crowd, as they had begun to throw  projectiles,  and I had been notified that just prior to that,  the Wisconsin  State Patrol had taken rocks, bottles, glass, and that an officer had been punched in the face.

Once the decision was made to begin to move, there were  people  that were flanking  around  towards  the capitol side. I did yell to get back, and please disperse.  These  people  then did continue  to advance  towards and approach the line. I did then deploy  a short burst of a MK IX pepper  spray  deterrent  at what appeared  to be a group of 2-3 specific individuals that were approaching the line together after having been ordered to disperse. I did also observe and hear that other officers were also forced to deploy MK IXs as well as other deterrents as well. The short burst  that I did use appeared  to have a positive  effect, and the 2-3 individuals that it was directed at did turn around, and not attempt to cause harm to myself or other officers in my  immediate area.

This concludes my use of force for 5/31/2020. NFA Det. M Davenport 4035

OFFICER TYLER DUDEK

Ok – this is intersting because of how they gathered their intelligence – Facebook.

PART THREE, FOUR, AND FIVE?

I believe there are additional reports from officers who used force that were mentioned in these reports that were not included.  Also, these reports do not include Dane County Sheriff’s office and others who were reported to be using force.  So . . . I will continue on my search.
