A pharmacist accused of tampering with over 500 doses of COVID-19 vaccine at Advocate Aurora Health Hospital in Grafton was arrested Thursday.
Grafton police said the pharmacist, a Grafton resident, removed 57 vials from a refrigerator and left them out overnight last week. They said the man knew this would render the vaccines "useless" and make people who received them believe they were vaccinated when they were not.
Each vial contained about 10 doses of vaccine. Aurora discarded more than 500 doses and Thursday said it has determined 57 people were given less-effective or ineffective vaccines.
Police recommended felony charges of recklessly endangering safety, adulterating a prescription drug, and criminal damage to property. They estimated the cost of lost vaccine to be between $8,000 and $11,000.
Police said they are still investigating the man's motive and have not released his name. He is being held at the Ozaukee County Jail.
The FBI and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration were also investigating, police said.
Aurora officials had previously reported the incident was a mistake, but Wednesday night announced it had fired the employee after discovering the actions were intentional.
I hooked up with Aurora over 25 years ago. Back then, it was a great healthcare provider. Things are not the same today. I've thought about switching to Ascension lately, but I'm afraid of jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.
State of Wisconsin vs. Christian Reynoso
As court proceedings move forward, Former mayor John Dickert and Christian Reynoso begin preparing for trial.
As you may recall, Dickert and Reynoso were involved in an altercation at the Piggly Wiggly parking lot on Washington Ave. Initially only Dickert was charged on 5-11-2020 with criminal disorderly conduct.
Dickert quickly hired Attorney Patrick Cafferty.
Christian Reynoso was charged the following day and elected to represent himself as Pro se for the last several months.
You may read more about the incident below:
As of today, December 30, 2020 Reynoso has secured the highly touted law office of Vince Bobot to represent and advocate the dismissal of charges of disorderly conduct against him.
Attorney Bobot is the right fit for Reynoso being Bobot is not an insider within the 2nd. Judicial District.
Attorney Bobot will bring forth an aggressive multi path approach to free Christian Reynoso from the wrongful disorderly conduct charges issued by the State of Wisconsin.
RCC conducted our own investigation concerning this altercation in the spring. It is our view that mayor John Dickert initiated physical contact between the two parties and is the party that violated Disorderly Conduct statute 947.01(1).
Reynoso acted in self defense under the protections of Wisconsin statutes 939.48(1)(1).
It is further our opinion that Reynoso has civil claims against Dickert.
Reynoso is currently in school learning the profession of cheese making and Wisconsin is in need of great cheese-makers.
We foresee a future of Reynoso branded cheeses.

You can watch every kind of idiot on the road today. Don't pull over for the bums who fly off the road by themselves or slam into a tree alone - natural selection demands that fools suffer the consequences of their foolishness. Why save an idiot driver who will just kill himself in a car some other way, and possibly take you out, too? Save the innocent. Let the clowns suffer.
By the way, a dashcam is the thing to stem lies when and if you have an accident. People will lie and lie and lie until the truth catches up with them. A video dispels all lies.
P.S. Why do so many automobiles have their windshield wipers activated by a crash?

Aurora Health says employee intentionally removed COVID-19 vaccine from fridge, ruining more than 500 doses; FBI investigating
Advocate Aurora Health says a now-fired employee intentionally removed 57 vials of the Moderna coronavirus vaccine from a refrigerator last weekend, causing them to become ineffective and be discarded.
Initially, Aurora was "led to believe" the removal was an error. But Wednesday, the employee "acknowledged that they intentionally removed the vaccine from refrigeration," according to a statement from the health care provider.
Grafton Police Department said in a statement late Wednesday that it was notified by Aurora shortly after 6 p.m. "regarding an employee tampering with vials of the COVID-19 vaccine" at its hospital at 975 Port Washington Road.
The statement goes on to say the incident is being investigated by the FBI and the Food and Drug Administration as well as Grafton police.

you can be sure of is that McMayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason will be the first vaccinated, if he hasn't already. From there on, I suspect that we can expect the usual machinations and backroom deals in the distribution of the vaccine. Butterball will appear in the Journal Times overlooking the vaccination of an elderly black woman, but the reality is that all of his cronies must be vaccinated first.
The true colors of one's character will be determined by the grab for vaccinations. As you watch the entitled and criminal elements of our city government get vaccinated before your grandmother, be glad that you are even in the running for a vaccination. You can be sure that all of Butterball's enemies will have to kiss his ass in order to get a vaccination. As the deaths of the poor and people of color continue to mount, Butterball will declare himself the emperor of the vaccine, deciding who gets the vaccine and when. This swine is who legally represents you. Oink-oink for your vaccine.
NASHVILLE — Sixteen months before Anthony Quinn Warner's RV exploded in downtown Nashville on Christmas morning, officers visited his home in Antioch after his girlfriend reported that he was making bombs in the vehicle, according to documents obtained by The Tennessean.
On Friday, 63-year-old Warner blew up a city block, police say, about 6:30 a.m. on Second Avenue outside an AT&T switch facility. The bomb caused massive destruction to 41 downtown buildings and crippled telecommunication systems throughout the Southeast over the weekend.
In the aftermath, The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Warner was "not on our radar" prior to the bombing. But a Metro Nashville Police Department report from August 2019 shows that local and federal authorities were aware of alleged threats he had made.

Clinicians had to discard about 500 doses of the Moderna vaccine Saturday after vials were kept unrefrigerated for too long at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton.
In a statement, Advocate Aurora Health officials said someone removed 50 vials from a refrigerator to access other items and failed to put them back overnight Friday. Each vial contained ten doses of vaccine.
An internal investigation found the failure was an "unintended human error."
"We are clearly disappointed and regret this happened," officials said in a statement.
Clinicians were still able to administer some of the vaccine from the vials within the allowable 12 hour post-refrigeration window but had to discard most of it, according to the statement. Once the vaccine is thawed, it cannot be refrozen.
Advocate Aurora Health has vaccinated about 17,000 of its employees in the last 12 days, officials said.
A total 39,501 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Wisconsin, according to state health officials -- mostly Pfizer vaccine and 3,905 doses of Moderna.

Scott Walker caught lying after posting pic of ‘great pizza’ he ate ‘tonight’... that was actually from over a year prior
Former Wisconsin governor and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker was caught red-handed in an Italian food-themed blunder after trying to encourage Americans to support their local restaurants.
On Saturday, the day after Christmas, seemingly trying to lead by example, Walker posted on Twitter “Great pizza tonight at San Giorgio Pizzeria Napoletana. We have to support our local restaurants and small businesses!”, along with a picture of a delicious-looking sausage-topped pizza.
However, savvy social media users were quick to point out that the picture of Walker’s pizza had actually been taken from another post he had made over a year previously, in October 2019.
Former Missouri secretary of state Jason Kander alleged that Walker wanted to convey the image of supporting local restaurants during the Covid-19 pandemic without “actually risking his health” by going to the restaurant and taking a new photograph.
Many users questioned why Walker would feel the need to lie about a pizza he had eaten that evening.
And it wasn’t the first time Walker had found himself at the center of a pizza-related controversy. In July 2019, he was ridiculed for posting a picture of a “veggie pizza” that bore little resemblance to the iconic Italian fare.
