    what is wrong where are the protests? the outrage in any of these neighborhoods, frustrating to be an unappreciated officer of the law… people have no morals, or personal responsiblity it all starts with family values… noticiably lacking, in various parts of Milwaukee…

      Actually their is lots of outrage. In my neighborhood alone we had 3 different type of protests, one with police presence, over the summer. But because it is peaceful and don’t inolve sound bites no media coverage which means people like you don’t thin it exist. We have beautifying clean ups, build gardens and playgrounds. We get try to get to know our neighbors. What else aren’t we doing?
