The date was March 3, 2012 in the wee hours of the morning. The town was Slinger, a small town, almost all Caucasian. A group of people gathered to have drinks and share stories, celebrating the life of a friend they had recently lost. In that group was Bo Morrison, 20 years old. Bo was well liked by many, he had high hopes for the world. Bo believed, as I have heard so many times from people who were close to him, that he could help change the world, that everyone could. He has been said to have been in the process of joining the Marines and he was a college graduate in Carpentry. He was a soft, gentle man, a cuddler as many of his friends have said and as is evident looking through his Facebook profile. Bo was under 21 and when the police came to break up the party, hid on the neighbor’s porch.
The media seems to highlight the fact that he was drinking underage and hiding from police. But this all becomes irrelevant quick as the story continues. The truly relevant portions are enough to sicken even the tamest of souls. Adam Kind, the neighbor had previously gone to confront the party goers. He banged on their window and yelled to turn the music down. He left his doors unlocked for this. Another fact that the media seems to ignore is that he is reported to have told the people in the car “You’re gonna pay” or something to that effect. He went back home and later in the night was called by police. They stated there was a party but that all should be good and it had been broken up. The police remained right across the street as, in less than five minutes, he went to bed, talked to his wife, got his gun from a case in the closet, loaded it, checked the front, checked the kitchen, went into the porch, confronted Bo Morrison, and shot him dead.
The timeline alone doesn’t make sense and I am in the middle of compiling a story with even more inconsistencies. Despite all of this, the highly partisan and clearly incompetent Washington County DA continues to stall justice and insist that this was self defense and “Castle Doctrine” despite the fact that Bo was not armed and self defense REQUIRES equal or lesser force. He continues to spit on the family and name of transparency, refusing to release tapes from the officer’s car (who called Adam Kind from his car before the killing) and until almost two months later, refused to release the unedited 911 call. Finally the call was released. But what was hidden speaks volumes as to the extent the DA is willing to go to sweep this case under the rug.
Originally, the call was edited and today one of the portions edited out is released. In this portion (of which I have tweaked the audio so you can hear better), you can clearly hear Adam Kind call Bo Morrison both a “Stupid F*cken Kid” and later, a new developement, “F*cken N*gger”. This new development shows clearly and without a doubt why the Washington County DA can no longer handle this case and why this needs to see a jury. The justification behind not trying Adam Kind is spotty at best. With these new developments it is clear that race may have had more to do with it than anything. In the State of Wisconsin we cannot take a persons life or liberty without a trial, and even then we can only take their liberty not life. But Bo Morrison lost his life and his liberty. Without a crime. Without a charge, warrant, or trial. His killer, Adam Kind, still runs free. Please share this and demand justice for Bo Morrison.
