    Maybe someone should get all of these shooting reports, stabbings, etc to Peter, president of the Milwaukee Bucks. Tell us, Peter oh what should Milwaukee do? More free activities? More church involvement? More EBT and other assistance? More job fairs? More 2nd chance programs? It WAS 4 OCLOCK in the afternoon. Kid was probably on way home from school and gets shot. Maybe he wouldn’t steal a car and got shot at for it. Maybe he did steal a car at one time and got shot at for it. Maybe the shooter was trying to get into a gang.Maybe the driver of his car was in a gang or trying to get out and got shot at. This is Milwaukee. Welcome, Peter, welcome.
