    Wake up Preachers in Milwaukee!!!!!!!!! We have two major problems facing this city. The gun violence and homosexual marriages. We all need to come together from every denomination and address these issues. How can we stand idly by and continue to be silent? Forget the cease fire Sabbath, that was a failure. We need to start pushing prayer, repentance, Godly morals and values.

      Are you seriously putting two consenting adults getting married in the same category as the horrific amount of gun violence occuring in Milwaukee? The ones that scream the loudest….

      So you think the solution is to get these thugs to trade in their guns for bibles? You really think they’re going to do that?

    Post the one I just put up IT man, and stop preventing these bigoted euro loud mouths from hearing the truth, these African youth are only acting as wild as the euro that is the progenitor of this type of animalistic, self hating behavior. We do not need your religion, we do not need to be in close proximity to you all, leave this nation MY ancestors built. Parasites.

      What, r u talking about. R u blaming other people for the gun violence. I think I will blame the ghetto, thugs, and animals that do these crimes. I will never go down to 12 and north ave, its the hoo, ghetto, just the worest part of milwaukee. Lets just build a wall around it.

    all this gun violence by people thinking they are “tough”. all they are is cowards and punks. tough guys don’t need guns, knives or whatnot. they have inner strength. we need to pray for them all to see the senseless of their actions, and see the value of human life, including their own, and to have respect for that value.

    U know what can prevent a few shooting/killings each year. If WI has the death penalty. It might speak the thugs language or not there is a reason why they live in the hood
