Both suspects, a 24-year-old man and a 36-year-old man, were taken into custody and the money and cigarettes were found inside the car.

    Convicted felon means nothing to anyone, hell more than half of the blacks in Milwaukee are felons, ok, at least the men are between ages 13 and 99 are. Welcome to Milwaukee, good job MPD.

    Back when I was in Vegas before the Corleone family took over we didn’t have these type of problems. Now I’m just a pensioner living in the states trying to get by on crumbs and these criminals are taking the food out of my mouth.

    The police must stop wasting time arresting these feral pieces of subhuman vermin and just shoot them in their heads then leave the dead bodies where they fall. The black plague must be eradicated by executing them all. Kill every last one of them.
