Where Is The Other Story On Bradley / Prosser

Why is every MSM outlet running with the first story about Prosser choking Bradley? 

This is what most are not seeing or hearing. 

Hit job on Prosser? « Hot Air
"At least five justices, including Prosser and Bradley, had gathered in Bradley’s office and were informally discussing the decision. The conversation grew heated, the source said, and Bradley asked Prosser to leave. Bradley was bothered by disparaging remarks Prosser had made about Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson.

Bradley felt Prosser “was attacking the chief justice,” the source said. Before leaving, Prosser “put his hands around her neck in what (Bradley) described as a chokehold,” the source said. “He did not exert any pressure, but his hands were around her neck,” the source said. The source said the act “was in no way playful.”"

But another source told the Journal Sentinel that Bradley attacked Prosser. “She charged him with fists raised,” the source said. Prosser “put his hands in a defensive posture,” the source said. “He blocked her.” In doing so, the source said, he made contact with Bradley’s neck.

Another source said the justices were arguing… [and] Prosser said he”d lost all confidence in [Abrahamson's] leadership. Bradley then came across the room “with fists up,” the source said. Prosser put up his hands to push her back. Bradley then said she had been choked, according to the source. Another justice – the source wouldn’t say who – responded, “You were not choked.”

Huh, if Bradley went after Prosser, then shouldn't she resign from the supreme court?

Actually, no.

Prosser was in Bradley's office after being asked to leave, that put him in the wrong, as a kind of trespsser; the legal term is he was committing a kind of interference with a person.

That gives Bradley greater leeway in confronting Prosser, and gives Prosser less of a basis for responding aggressively to Bradley if he felt threatened. Prosser had the opportunity to leave if he really felt threatened by Bradley.

In fact, he had the duty to retreat, and did not, not by ANY of the reports. That puts Bradley in the right and Prosser in the wrong --- AGAIN.

It might be a different situation if this were not Bradley's office, and if there were not consensus for Bradley asking Prosser to leave.

Further, it appears that there may have been more verbal abuse by Prosser towards Abrahamson precipitating the request for him to leave. Both the physical altercation and the verbal abuse are in apparent violation of the Wisconsin Judicial Code of Conduct, and not for the first time by Prosser.

You appear unaware of the background of Prosser's rages, and his problems with anger control, which give plausibility to Bradley's version of events, not Prosser's. Maybe you should check out the Youtube videos of Prosser's rages, particularly what he does with his hands during those incidents.
