    Our city is plagued by gun violence and our people have no regard for another humans life. I pray for divine intervention and I pray that God protects the innocent victims of these barbaric and hideous crimes. What is it that is so bad that it causes someone to be filled with so much hate and rage that they have no regard when it comes to the life of another human being?

    Does anyone remember when both Barrett and Flynn stood in front or every television camera they could find and proclaimed they were responsible for crime reduction in Milwaukee? I now hope with 4 more years of Flynn this isn’t going to be a trend that continues. But Barrett loves this guy because Flynn was able to slash the police department budget. I sure hope the money was worth it Tom.
