"I got into town on Christmas Eve," Terrell Brown said.

But instead of Santa, Brown spotted trouble early Sunday.

"I was actually sitting in the car and I saw a police car pull up. That's when I actually went in the house. Mother had went to the store and she actually saw a car on fire. I didn't smell nothing. I didn't see nothing until the police pulled up," Brown said.

Brown said this type of crime is exactly why he no longer lives in Milwaukee.

"I'm disappointed in the city," Brown said.

"I'm still worried, you know, for my kids, my sister, my mother, my brother -- my whole family really, because a lot of things happening, you know, close to home," Brown said.

    Yup, escape while you can! Milwaukee is turning into a mini ghetto Chicago with help from the local liberal politicians, like mayor McCheese. It’s not going to get any better while the liberals are running things down there, that’s for sure.

    I love how people talk about the city like it’s a living person walking around and doing all these crimes. You know I think k I seen Milwaukee that night, it was wearing a brown jacket. It walked up and set that car on fire. Christ it’s not the city, it’s the trash living in it.
