Wisconsin Officer Cleared Of Fatal Shooting Will Return to Police Work

A white Wisconsin police officer was exonerated by an internal investigation of his fatal shooting of an unarmed 19-year-old biracial man.
Since prosecutors declined to file charges, he is expected to return to work.
The Madison Police Department said Officer Matt Kenny did not violate its deadly force policies in the March 6 shooting death of 19-year-old Tony Robinson.
The conclusion of the internal decision comes one month after Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne decided not to charge Kenny in the case.
Madison Police Chief Mike Koval said Kenny will receive psychiatric counseling through the department and be eased back into work.
There is no timeline for when Kenny will resume his previous work as a street patrol officer.
