Falk Steps Up

The right thing to do.

Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk has written letters of apology to be sent to the family of murder victim Brittany Zimmermann and her fiance, in response to a disclosure last week that a call to the 911 center was made from her phone around the time she was killed, but was not returned as is normal protocol.

Falk's speculation that 'returning the call would not have prevented the murder' is most likely accurate. At the same time, there's no excuse for this procedural screwup.
