    The crime in Milwaukee has gotten out of hand. We used to live in Riverwest and just couldn’t take the escalating crime. We went the USDA loan route and moved to a neighboring county. We miss city life, but love how stuff doesn’t get stolen off the lawn and people don’t get killed when delivering pizza, etc..
