Description

My use-of-force evaluation has found that a reasonable officer would be justified in the use of deadly force in this circumstance. Officer Heimsness’ belief that he was in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm is deemed to be objectively reasonable. Officer Heimsness belief that lesser degrees of force were not viable in the moment and under the totality of the circumstances (see the above discussion regarding preclusion and special circumstances) is also deemed objectively reasonable. The decision of Officer Heimsness to use deadly force was reasonable and within Madison Police Department Policy and State of Wisconsin use-of-force standards.
