    Why are there so many car jackings? What do they do with the stolen cars? Just go for a joy ride until they crash?
    So what is being done to stop this? Why isn’t there a “Bootcamp” for these young offender to get them out of the city and away from their friends and life of crime? Take them 3 hours up North and make them sleep in tents, chop wood and learn to grow their own food and learn to appreciate something. Most of these kids and under 18. Make the parents pay for their children’s mistakes and crimes.

      Theft of property valued $5,000 to $10,000 is a class H felony in WI. Why aren’t these “kids” charged and sentenced for a felony crime? If a weapon is used during the crime it should be an even more serious charge. I assume most of the vehicles stolen are within that value.
      The problem is the Judicial system is weak and crumbling. The leaders are so afraid of the race card being played that they let the offenders off with probation so the system and it’s employees aren’t accused of trying to imprison the entire black population (as previously accused). Stiff penalties for all offenders, no matter what race. If it just so happens that one race or age group commits more crimes than another – so be it – now you have data for statistics………(and I’m sure there’s groups just waiting to deny or refute such data). But the idea that the ‘system’ is afraid to sentence criminals in fear of discrimination accusations sickens me. We need leaders elected.

      I doubt these kids would give a rats arse if their parents had to pay for their mistakes or not and I’m sure most of the parents don’t have a pot to pee in. Stop giving them a slap on the wrist and give them a noose around the neck.

    Many will think that I am nuts. Many of these wanna be gangsters simply don’t know any better. Sadly not their fault. There is a chance to make something of them. When apprehended for terrifying soccer moms stealing cars. They should be locked up for 5 years.Very limited contacts to outside world. Solitary confinement for a bit. Then do something with MATC to teach them a trade. I bet many could benefit. We don’t need committees with high paid executives talking BS. Just old fashioned German logic here.

      Their black proi privelege is out of control, we now have the government falling over themselves to give them every affirmative action advantage possible in fear of being labeled “racist”. Black lives matter attempted to make officers afraid of shooting black criminals. No more special treatment, punish them for their actions, if blacks really are equal than stop treating them like they have lower expectations.

    To avoid becoming another statistic, women driving alone should ALWAYS have a loaded pistol on their lap. She should have shot him in the face as soon as he attempted to approach her. It would be doing all of us a favor.

      Yeah this generation of worthless hood rats love preying on white women and elderly…so stop being politically correct and be smart. If you see young black males who look like braindamaged scum, drive off or put them down like rabid dogs.
