    Is this Lena Taylor’s pristine, no-crime neighborhood that some of this occurred?? The nerve of the police to be in the area……

    The Purge Milwaukee style. This isn’t your fathers purge where we wait and do all our dirty work one day a year. This is a new, in your face, 24/7, 365 days a year of kill your neighbor! Coming soon to a street near you!

    Why are these shootings making news? The real news is a night without violence. Now that would be a headline!

      It’s really sad to see what has happened to Milwaukee. I remember the time where I could take the bus in the evening to go shopping…not any more. Now you have to be locked in your house by dusk, and then you still aren’t safe from the bullets. Milwaukee has turned into one big cesspool of crime and violence. Yet the people still vote Barrett in office, so they must like it this way.

    The legal system will not take the trash off of our streets. The MPD tries. Catch and release is not really a very good option. Just as well if they take out each other.

    As usual the Ceasefire Sabbath did nothing. When are people going to realize that these thugs don’t give a crap about Barrett and his Sabbath. It’s going to take a lot more than empty speeches to change this crime and violence that is taking over the city.
