I live in the area of Madison represented on the City Council by Ald. Amanda Hall and just a few blocks from the bank where the recent shooting took place. Her response to the situation has been appalling.
The armed security guard saw the man posture as if he had a gun and shot him, Police Chief Mike Koval said.
Starting with the TV interview that took place a short time after the incident, she has blamed the bank, the guard, the city and society in general. She seems unable to put blame on the robber himself. Her reasoning is confusing.
I am thankful the guard took quick, decisive action, and I hope he is able to continue in any area of employment that he wants to pursue. I also hope Ald. Hall, who chooses to blame everyone but the crook and give no credit to the good guy who stopped the crook, is serving her last term on the City Council.
