Months After Paulie Heenan Shooting, Many Questions Still Unanswered

    Amelia Royko Maurer spoke with Tony Castaneda today about the tragic events surrounding Paulie Heenan. Paulie Heenan was shot to death by a Madison police officer on Baldwin Street in early November of 2012. Maurer, a musician, worked closely with Heenan in the recording studio. She described Heenan as having maternal instincts in the studio. Heenan aided musicians through the recording process not just as a studio engineer but also as a caring adult. The two soon developed a strong friendship and later Maurer let Heenan stay at her apartment for some time. He was supposed to be staying at her apartment the night he had been shot. The police report states that on the night of the shooting Heenan was dropped off outside Maurer’s apartment. He accidentally walked into the wrong home. The neighbor was home and tried to help Heenan by walking Heenan towards Maurer’s apartment. Meanwhile, an upstairs neighbor, unsure of the extent of the situation, called the police. According to the report and additionally a reenactment video, in the course of the walk home, Heenan became incompliant, pushing the neighbor. The police arrived to the scene and found the two struggling. An officer rushed towards the two with his gun drawn. The neighbor broke free and Heenan focused his attention on the officer. It is unclear whether Heenan knew they were officers. He was intoxicated, it was nighttime and the officer did not announce himself as police. A second officer approached the scene. When Heenan noticed the second officer he began to lower himself to the ground. He was shot and killed as he did so. In the interview Maurer talks about some critical discrepancies between the officers account and the neighbors account of the event. The tragic event has sparked intense debate on police procedures and has put into question the officers competence. Stephanie Rearick, a community activist, musician, and part owner of Mother Fools Coffee Shop on Williams Street, was also interviewed today. She has been helping out with a community meeting which will attempt to cover a lot of the major topics and questions the Madison community might have about the event. The community meeting takes place Tuesday, January 29th, 2013, from 6:30 to 9:30pm at Bethany Evangelical Free Church. Paulie Heenan’s obituary   more »

The Next Chief of Police. What Do We Need?

With the announced retirement of Police Chief Noble Wray, the Madison Police Department stands at a critical point. The shooting death of Paul Heenan almost a year ago shook the Madison community in more ways than one. Not only did the community mourn the tragic loss of Heenan, but many lost faith in the Madison Police Department: a department that has historically prided itself on community-based policing now faces questions about its policies for use of deadly force. Cheri Maples is a former captain in the Madison Police Department, an ordained Buddhist dharma teacher and the co-founder of the Center for Mindfulness and Justice. On October 16, the center will hold a community meeting asking what Madison should expect from its next police chief. more »

  Cheri Maples, co-founder of Mindfulness and Justice, worked for the criminal justice system, as an Assistant Attorney General in the Wisconsin Department of Justice for the last twenty years. She came by the studio to talk with Tony about the recent tragic police shooting of Paul Heenan. Many of Paul Heenan’s friends and neighbors were distraught by his death, which they considered unnecessary and thoughtless. They have raised questions about the police department’s conduct. There is a mistrust of the police department right now, said Maples, rightly so, she added. She is hopeful that the police department can regain the publics trust.     Cheri is giving a talk next Monday, February 4th, from 7PM to 9PM, at the Bethany Evangelical Free Church.   Listen to the interview below.   more »

The Plight of the Chicago Teacher’s Union

Wednesday, 12 September 2012 | A Public Affair

On Wednesday September 12th, Molly Stentz subbing for Brenda Konkel spoke with a panel about the recent teacher’s strike in Chicago. Molly spoke with Chicago high school social studies teacher and blog writer Adam Heenan, writer for The Progressive Magazine Kari Lydersen and reporter for the New York Indypendent Newspaper Jaisal Noor. Kari Lydersen recently wrote in her piece “Chicago Teachers vs. Rahm Emanuel and Corporatized Education:” When 26,000 Chicago Teachers Union members hit the picket lines Monday, Mayor Rahm Emanuel called it a “strike of choice” that is “unnecessary,” “avoidable” and “wrong.” He stayed with the narrative he’s been pushing for more than a year – that teachers are acting selfishly upon their own interests at the expense of students and parents. Talking with some of the thousands of teachers, school nurses, counselors and other staff who manned picket lines and rallied downtown Monday and Tuesday, I also got the impression the strike was a conscious “choice.” Not a choice to throw the lives of students and parents into chaos in a bid to get better pay and less scrutiny, as Emanuel’s administration has painted it, but a choice to stand up to a powerful city administration and well-funded national “education reform” interest groups in a battle that epitomizes larger fights over public sector unionism and the future of public education nationwide.” Molly spoke with the panel about why Chicago Teachers have decided to strike and the impact this decision might have on education in the windy city.
