      Mayor Barrett is a disgrace to the city of Milwaukee. He never worked in a day in his life except sit on his butt not producing anything. Blame the morons who voted for him, their brains are out to lunch. Milwaukee is a disgrace, once a pretty city to live in. Hopefully in 11 weeks I am moving out of here and back to the Rocky Mountain West!

    I am sure this is just a big misunderstanding. The “gun shots’ were probably just bottle rockets. Mayor Barrett has assured us that Downtown Milwaukee is one of the safest area’s in the United States. Why do you think we are getting a Trolley? Only safe area’s get trolleys.
