A Tale of Two Cop Calls


When UWPD arrived, the man ran away from the officers, eventually turning “belligerent” and throwing a terrace chair at them. After one officer deployed his taser, Blisset was restrained and arrested.

Blisset was booked into the Dane County Jail with a blood alcohol content of 0.24 percent and was charged with Resisting/Obstructing.


Kenny told investigators he had entered a side door to 1125 Williamson St. after he heard “yelling and screaming” from the upstairs apartment, and feared Robinson might have been inside assaulting someone else. Police had been called to the home around 6:30 on the night of the shooting for multiple reports that Robinson was acting erratically and had battered several people.

After Kenny had gone most of the way up the apartment steps, Ozanne said, the 12-year Madison police veteran told investigators Robinson confronted him, punching him in the side of the head and knocking him into a stairway wall.

The first man was tasered and is alive despite throwing a (heavy, metal) chair at the cops.

The second was shot dead by police.

I’ll give you three guesses. The first two don’t count. What do you think the difference was?
