    As normal, deleted for saying truth. You all have fun living in this sewer of a city. Back up to the woods soon where I will help the guy take / steal my firewood because he needs it.

    Been On the same block since I was 4. Seen this my bayview go up and down. I still have the same neighbors as I did when I was a kid. We keep our block(community) very tight. Almost all of us are proud gun owners. That shooter is lucky he didn’t pick our block! We are not kind to scum.

      @JohnDoe – I also live on a “tight” block. All the neighbors know each other and watch out for any strange behavior. Most of us legally own guns for protection and are licensed to carry concealed. All that said, the row of shops on our corner have been the victims of armed robbery 4 times in the last 6 months. Last year, one of the workers was shot in an armed robbery. Crime has no boundaries. There is no invisible wall of safety around Bayview. Thr arrogance of the people who live in the communities that, as of yet, have not been as affected by crime astounds me. When thee moment comes that this crime wave begins to hit all of you as it has hit all of us, just remember how so many of you mocked our situation rather than help it. Yall are basically just staring at a tidal wave, watching it wash over Milwaukee and ignorantly believing “It will never get to us.” Well it has. And it will continue to.

  • Barrett and Flynn are pathetic!!

    Mayor Tommy McTrolley don’t care as long as he gets his trolley to nowhere!! Those only, who voted for that POS should be the victims of crime,they helped ruin this city!!!

    This is really gotten out of hand. Attack in Bay View. unreal. It’s time to start bringing in the hanging judge and the magnificent 7, heck even high plains drifter could do a better job cleaning up the town.

    WTF are you babbling about SHARROOON??? It doesn’t matter where you live car jackings can occur anywhere just maybe not with the same frequency. I hope this lady is ok and that they shoot these cowardly wanna be thugs next time they try to pick on a woman while armed.
