June 9th Is Andrew Steele Day

By Jeff Simpson

Today will go down as Andrew Steele Day.  Andrew Steele is a former Deputy Sheriff who was forced to retire from public service early due to suffering from ALS.    Andrew Steele also shot and killed his wife and sister-in-law.  

Now, Andrew Steele is a suspect in the killings of his wife and her sister, Kacee Tollefsbol, at the Steeles' home Friday in Fitchburg, Wis., a suburb of Madison. Steele himself is being treated for an apparent suicide attempt that police say they never saw coming. He was arrested Friday.
Andy was a really good guy, no one saw it coming:

 "Nobody closely aligned with Andy and his family expected something like this to occur," Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney told The Associated Press on Monday. "We believe his diagnosis had an impact on the family but they were moving forward.
Now the Republicans in Wisconsin think its a good idea if Andy was allowed to roam free and armed in our public schools.    I mean how many people could he possibly kill at a time, and what are the odds that it would be your kid?

Besides, it was not his fault!  

An ALS-afflicted former Wisconsin deputy was acquitted of killing his wife and her sister because his disease made him not legally responsible for the murders, a jury found.
Andrew Steele, 40, had written in a rambling suicide that he’d had “numerous threesomes” with the women before killing them both in August in a botched suicide pact at his Fitchburg, Wis., home outside Madison.
But a jury found early Thursday that the Dane County Sheriff’s deputy, who resigned in June after his amyotrophic lateral sclerosis diagnosis, found the disease affected his brain and he wasn’t in his right mind during the slayings.
Wait! So he might not even go to prison?   There is no provision in the new law that stops Andy from now carrying a gun into your school if they release him.  

Andy can celebrate with some cake and ice cream that the Republicans in the Legislature were looking out for him today!

Steele resigned from the Dane County Sheriff's Department in June shortly after being diagnosed with ALS.
