    This young man was probably just looking for bus fare to get home on a cold December evening. Now had there been a trolley service running, this “crime” would not have occurred. Thank you Tom Barret for deciding to give us Milwaukee-ans trolley service so our “crime” rate will go down. I feel that the city of Milwaukee will once again be a safe space
