    The same reason whites go shoot up a school of children and no one has done anything to them. Riddle me alot.

      Hey did you hear about 45 shootings in Chicago over Easter weekend. Three people died. You are out of touch with reality.

    Actually, eight people died in Chicago… but the point is, until we as a Black community take some responsibility, stop making lame excuses, and fight for our children and families, this madness is going to continue. What’s worse: the pain of change or the pain of staying the same?

      That was a very intelligent response. I would offer a few solutions to the problem myself, but I am a middle-aged, caucasian who also happens to be conservative, so my opinions are usually ridiculed, shouted down, or assumed to be from a racist POV.

    The inner city has been a cess pool of filth, hopelessness, and heathens for a very long time. No money, social programs, or person is going to fix it. The inner city hav been a HUGE drain of resources for far to long. Build another prison and start locking up those who create the crime so that the good people can prosper and live their lives without fear.

    Maybe if society starts executing ALL violent criminals instead of them being a burden on our taxes,or making excuses for their actions and letting many back on the streets to harm/kill again,crime might actually go down. Society has to stop paying for people to breed too. If you can’t afford to have a child,keep your legs closed!!!

    Social programs, federal funding, welfare, rent assistance, SSI, free cell phones…. You can have everything for free and handed to you and yt you still have to kill, steal, rob, injury… There are no leaders in Milwaukee’s or the nation’s black community with any legitimacy…. This is what happens when you hitch your wagon to the liberals… MLK was a conservative, Al Gore’s father voted against civil rights, Lincoln risked the country to end slavery… But now you allowed the liberals to ruin your culture.. The government replaced the father in the homes, there is no family structure and generations of families have relied on welfare as the only income. There is no desire to work, to succeed, to break free of the hopelessness. Everyone has tupac’s song memorized, but couldn’t tell any words of MLK except for I have a dream…. Wake up.

    There’s no time for this back and forth race nonsense. People are dying. People. Real life flesh and blood people. Maybe some of them werent perfect. Maybe some of them were not good for our community. Bit they were still people. Jesus died and rose to claim them as much as he did for me. That said, all this racial anger is rwally just a distraction from the problem. We have a severe crisis of violence in our city. Theres no simple solution to decrease the violence, but that doesn’t mean its impossible. We must claim this city back. Instead of breaking this down by race, neighboehooe, income bracket, or use of govt benefits…lets acknowledge the 2 sides of this issue. Either you are one of the people who builds, invesrs in, protects this community…or you are one of the people who tears it apart, harms it. We need to begin giving 2 choices to those of the latter group…change or get out. And no more “anti snitching” nonsense. If someone is harming the community, then they are not worth honor or protection. Again…change or get out. We are claiming this city back! My kids WILL grow up in a community where they can play outside safely! I WILL be able to drive through any part of town without fear of being the vicrim of a bystander shooting!
