    things occurred as you interpret the accounts?

    The case you make would have Bradley being investigated as the aggressor for charging, with her possibly charged with assault or battery and Prosser not charged at all because he was defending himself. Is this what you are asserting?

    Bradley then would be at high risk for perjury for her Saturday statements

    "The facts are that I was demanding that he get out of my office and he put his hands around my neck in anger in a chokehold," Bradley told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel."put his hands around my neck in anger in a chokehold"

    and responding directly Prosser's contention that he's be fully exonerated ...

    "You can try to spin those facts and try to make it sound like I ran up to him and threw my neck into his hands, but that's only spin."

      Did you really ask this question?

      Why did Kenneth Starr spend millions of dollars? Because he had to investigate the allegations made by others. Just like these groups will have to investigate the allegations made by others.

      The incident should be investigated. From the evidence we have, it does look like she was the aggressor after he acted like an asshole, and it's likely that if there isn't contradictory evidence found, that the finding will be that no charges will be filed against either one, since he wasn't really "assaulted" by her, despite getting up in his face with her fist raised, and all he did was repel the perceived attack with reasonable force.

      And no, there's absolutely no evidence of perjury. Perjury is an intent to deceive in a material matter AFTER having been sworn to tell the truth! She has not been sworn at any point in time when she's been giving statements to the media. That was just a stupid allegation on your part.

      And yeah, it does look like she exaggerated what happened to her. He DID put his hands out, and they DID contact her neck. That's not equivalent to him putting her in a chokehold.

      As I've written repeatedly, she likely got hit with his thumbs in the throat, and that hurts when it happens, but that's not the same as being choked.

      And according to another source, Bradley admitted that he didn't actually choke her - just that he was about to, and had she not been pulled away from her, she would have been choked. Well, we don't live in a "Minority Report" world.

        could be right, but you could be off quite a bit too. Given what we've seen in print of the accounts, you're really putting yourself out there: big reward if you're right, humble pie if not.
