    This is becoming a trend. That’s like the 3rd or 4th person disposed on in a trash can in the last 2 weeks.

    Chief, just keep calm. Seven out of ten fools in this City re-elected me. We’ll be fine. Yours always….Tom B.

    At least they put the body in the trash instead of just throwing it in the alley. Think positive people mayor mccheese and his lackey flynn have it under control!!


      Is this what the Mayor meant when he said we’re going to clean up this City? I don’t want to say it but, you get the Government you voted for.


    Ok, a new mayor plan, people please check your trash bin every hour for a body before the truck comes to unload them, that way we can keep track of trash bodies. Thank you Milwaukee, Tom Barrett. Better yet maybe we should put locks on the trash bins, that should slow them down.


      USMC….You see, that wouldn’t work either. The Trash Bin Jackers would wait in hiding until you had your key out ready to unlock your Trash Bin and then stick a gun in your face and demand you turn over your key for your Trash Bin to dispose of a dead body. Then you’d have the problem with Chief Flynn Flam having to decide, do we chase a Trash Bin Jacker and risk further harm. It starts getting very complicated for simpletons like the leaders in Milwaukee.

    Wow, that was very mature and not at all stereotyping/racist. You should actually meet or gave a conversation with a person of color before you stereotype a whole community of people.

    Did you realize that Reagan was more of a lefty? Did you know that he was an advocate for gun control? Do you know how ignorant you make yourself to be by the name calling, and made up words and juvenile rhetoric you think is so witty?

    I don’t know who this is but I am so glad your here! I went to high school with this man! A great, intelligent, successful, stand up man and reading this ignorance made me sick to my stomach!!! My eyes were swelling up with tears as I came to your post and you bought me back from going to a dark place with these devils!!! I didn’t need to say a word, you handled that!!! RIP
