Police dash cam video helped exonerate a Monona (Wisc.) Police officer forced to use deadly force in December against a suspect who carjacked a man to force him to withdraw funds from a credit union ATM.

Dash-cam footage obtained by WISC-TV shows the deadly shooting involving the unnamed officer and Daniel L. Thomas, a 30-year-old Madison resident killed in the incident.

Thomas had kidnapped a 63-year-old man at gunpoint, drove him to the UW Credit Union in Monona to force him to withdraw funds from his account. A Monona officer fired five shots, striking Thomas as he attempted to reverse his truck out of the ATM bay.

Why did it take so long to clear him, don't they realize what an officer is going through in a OIS. If the shooting is questionable, then take your time. Four months of bureaucratic crap, everyone passing the buck.
