Wisconsin Justice David Prosser apparently likes to choke women

Justice Prosser, whom many believe has been bought and paid for to help Governor Scott Walker end collective bargaining in Wisconsin seems to have anger management issues with his fellow female Supreme Court justices.

David Prosser Unhinged

Reportedly this was taken moments before Wisconsin Justice David Prosser choked Wisconsin Justice Ann Walsh Bradley.

From the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journel Sentinel:

Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley issued a statement late Saturday saying that fellow Justice David Prosser choked her and disputing claims that she attacked him first.

“The facts are that I was demanding that he get out of my office and he put his hands around my neck in anger in a chokehold,” she said. “Those are the facts and you can try to spin those facts and try to make it sound like I ran up to him and threw my neck into his hands, but that’s only spin.

“Matters of abusive behavior in the workplace aren’t resolved by competing press releases,” she said.

“I’m confident the appropriate authorities will conduct a thorough investigation of this incident involving abusive behavior in the workplace.”

But that’s not all Justice David Prosser has done. In February of 2010, David Prosser called Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson a ‘total bitch‘ and threatened to ‘destroy her’ and the means of said destruction would be war and ‘it won’t be a ground war.’

If that isn’t bad enough, he implied that his reaction was her fault. Kind of like a serial abuser who blames the victim. ‘The bitch made me do it‘ mentality of men who beat their wives and think it’s okay because they don’t know how to play well with others.

When you couple this Justices’ over-the-top reaction, a reaction he denies (the choking bit), with Clarence Thomas’ ethically shaky tenor, you have to wonder what is going on in this country. When did it become okay for people charged with upholding the law to skirt the law and no one do or say a thing about it? The media went crazy over Anthony Weiners penis, you couldn’t get away from his story but this, allegedly choking a fellow co-worker by a state Supreme Court Justice, and nada. Apparently, this isn’t newsworthy, apparently Justice Thomas’ alleged bribes isn’t newsworthy.

Apparently, America is apathetic.
