    Makes me happy that the thief was shot on 68th and Hadley. This is only a few blocks from me. Hopefully they will stay out of this neighborhood knowing we will defend it!

    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. Things will continue to get worse as long as people keep making excuses for what is happening to the city.
