On March 28, 2018 he was arrested by the Racine Police Department and charged for being a felon in possession of a firearm. The Racine County DA’s office, lead by Patricia Hanson (R) dismissed the charge on September 20, 2019. He was allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor count of “carrying a concealed weapon.” The judge gave him 7 days in jail and a fine. He was facing 10 years in prison until the prosecutor gave him the sweet deal.

Today, he was booked at 5:19pm and will likely see a Judge tomorrow at 1pm.

Vinson has lived in Missouri and Kansas previously. He was charged in Kansas with felony unlawful use of a weapon in 2015.

Republicans and Democrats on the bench and in the prosecutors’ office need to start punishing violent crimes because violence is on the rise in s/e Wisconsin.

Wisconsin has sent 3,152 people to prison From April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024.

  1. Where is the Kenosha activists? Where is Andy berg? Joe cardnilli? Where is never stop media? So VOCAL on Facebook but quiet when someone does something in the community that don’t fit a narrative or police? Where are you Andy? Joe? Kevin? Billy? Damn hypocrites!

    1. Obviously you run your mouth without educating yourself on things. Never Stop Media was live for over 8 hours as soon as this hit the scanner. And this was just a few hours after he got home from a march for Adam Toledo. He was then at another march this afternoon, but never stopped posting updates about the Kenosha shooting.

      1. Lol never stop media broke the story? Jesus your Jusy as hilarious as Kevin. He went live and played a police scanner. Lol great “breaking” journalism. He knew about it when everyone else did. He also said in his live it was a white suspect remember? Keep following fake news. His comment section is 80% filled with himself posting links for money! Get a clue!

      1. U were out there seeking justice? I didn’t see it on any platform. No March for peace either. Not blind at all. Just aware

        1. Justice is being served already you dumb fuck no need to protest. If dude wasn’t being charged then EVERYONE would be outraged and protesting

          1. Like everyone protesting in Minnesota? Dumb fuck? Chauvin has been in custody and in trial, potter was arrested the next day. So explain the difference. I will wait

  2. That bar needs to be investigated. The owners are scum. They are known to be “underage friendly.” They also are rumored to be distributors of cocaine, with a cutting and packaging operation going on upstairs from the bar.

    1. All three deceased had records, too…..I think this is a case of live by the gun, die by the gun. Nothing to see here….

      I knew right when that Porsche Bey said she was related to one of the victims that there were was likely some hood shit going down.

      1. just because they had a record doesn’t mean they deserved to die the fuck is wrong with you people. These young men were out enjoying a night with friends didn’t do anything wrong.

        1. I absolutely agree…..just because they had a record doesn’t mean they deserved to die. However, I’ll wait to hear the real story first. Whenever you are “friends” with someone like the shooter and the record he has….that is a big red flag that you are into stuff like that.

      2. It doesn’t matter if they had a record or not. Since you wanna be a fucking smart ass go look up the names. The charges aren’t bad at all. Fucking idiot. ? Kinda funny you disrespect the dead. This wasn’t “hood” shit. This was 3 MEN having a fun night out in the town where they live. Keep the disrespect to yourself & let all the families involved grieve without having to read shit like this. I knew them personally was only close with 1 & they were the most nicest & sweetest men you could even meet. So shove that up your ass

  3. The men that were killed were not “thugs” you fucking asshole. They were two of my childhood friends and good men as well as fathera who loved their children. Stop disrespecting the dead. People in the community including myself are in mourning over the loss of these men. Be a little more sensitive . its funny to me how its always the fucking assholes who dont even know the dead VI times that always have some smart ass shit to say. Fuck you. Let our friends and family grieve in peace.

    1. You are out mourning? I guess I’m confused. What is different about this that you aren’t out rioting and looting? Maybe you can explain?

  4. Save your nasty negative comments. If you didn’t know the victim mind your business and let the families grieve. Don’t tell me the three had prior records for guns because that’s untrue you didn’t know any of the three men so shut tf up. They weren’t some “street thugs” they were fathers , brothers , sons, hard working men. Keep your hateful bull shot to yourself

  5. So the Demonazis will push for even more gun control and cite this incident on their list of reasons why. Had existing gun laws been strictly enforced, this incident would not have happened. There needs to be some accountability from Racine County DA Patricia Hanson for her lack of good judgment in reducing the felony firearm charges to misdemeanor charge.

  6. The problem in the “communitie” is the conststant preocupation with being “disrespected”.
    Combine that with the problem in the “communitie” of never settling a problem one-on-one with fists. Every time the combatant calls in “his boys” like a pussy.
    So here we have 3 versus one. Of course the one can’t be “dissed” and the one can’t fight three; so the one pulls his gun just like the rap songs taught him.
    It takes courage to fight one-on-one. It takes courage and SELF RESPECT to walk away from a “dis”. Finally, shooting a gun at unarmed fleeing men is the ultimate “bitch” move. “Communitie” heal thyself. “Communite” members gunning each other down and hitting innocent people is a 100 times the problem of police misconduct . Why don’t you march about the listed problems of fatherless boys who never become men no matter what age they reach instead?

    1. This is absolutely true.

      This wasn’t a “mass shooting”. Stop believing everything CNN tells you to so you click on their story. This wasn’t some random guy going into a supermarket and killing 10 people or some disgruntled Fedex guy. I will admit, those cases (mass shootings) are almost always white people….I cannot argue that. It’s an issue.

      However, the big issue is that these types of killings like Somers House happen every night in Chicago….the disrespect culture. This weekend alone in Chicago…there were 27 people shot and 3 killed in violence just like Somers House…..why aren’t you all up in arms about this? A 7 year old girl was among the ones killed. This is what common white people don’t understand. I think it’s great that people are peacefully marching in other areas (key word is peacefully) but why are you only doing it when there is a cop-involved shooting but not doing it below?

      https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2021/4/17/22389065/chicago-weekend-shootings-april-16-19-crime-gun-violence-homicide

    2. And the bond hearing showed that is exactly what this was…..guy came back and shot someone because he got punched and disrespected. Again, thugs gonna be thugs…..that’s all that was involved here on both sides. Never know who is packing these days…..stupid for any of them to get in a fight over this.

    3. It was a jumping so no it wasn’t three on one I don’t know where you get your information. And he got his ass KICKED and then left the bar and came back with a gun.

      1. So they jumped this guy and beat his ass? Well, like I said….that’s the risk you take when you are thugs and jump someone at a bar….that person might just come back and shoot you dead. Pretty sure those three didn’t win this one. Glad you are clarifying.

  7. you can talk ‘smack” all you wish…this will have become generational for years to come..
    unless- GOD..PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY… & PARENTING. becomes the most basic principles of our society again! ( maybe already too late ? )
