Lancaster, Wisconsin man found guilty in beating


Recommended Posts

A man up in Lancaster, Wisconsin (about an hour's drive from me) was found guilty of beating another man, causing some rather serious injuries. 

After a one-day trial Wednesday in Grant County Circuit Court, jurors found Timothy J. Riley, 38, of rural Lancaster, guilty of substantial battery, disorderly conduct and two counts of felony bail jumping. Riley is one of two men accused of a Sept. 28 assault that left Joseph Koelker, 28, of Cassville, Wis., seriously injured.

Koelker on Wednesday testified that on Sept. 28 he was at Yesterdaze Tavern in Beetown Township when he overheard Riley making crude remarks about Koelker's girlfriend, Kim Kleindl. Koelker pushed Riley down on the bar floor and a brief tussle ensued, but it was quickly broken up by bar patrons.

Koelker said he was knocked down, punched, kicked and hit with the shovel at least four times. He sustained a broken nose, a fractured eye socket and had to get stitches in his forehead and staples in the back of his head.

Riley admitted that he said some things he probably shouldn't have.

Then there was this line in the story that really stood out to me...

After being kicked out of the bar, Riley said he and Kastner were passing the time by throwing beer bottles at each other in the parking lot when Koelker confronted them again.


Is that a thing now in Wisconsin?

Did you read that the guy who hit the Amish carriage in Marathon County and was DUI was released on 5000$ signature bond even after he killed the father? Now the son is dead. Wonder if they'll revoke his bail and throw his ass in the jail? Now there's an Amish family with no father and oldest son (age 11) who have a farm to deal with.

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
