  • Justice?

    15 years seems short for the loss of 2 lives because of a persons poor choices and action.
    Male school teachers get longer prison sentences for having consensual sex with a minor. No one died or is “hurt”

  • Justice?

    Nice face tattoo.
    Let’s see how much time the kid who killed 3 women from Chicago and seriously hurt the Uber driver gets.

  • Always Outspoken

    Typical Milwaukee “justice”. First she gets a plea deal from the DA (the original charges were 2nd degree reckless homicide), then she gets a light sentence (15 measly years for killing 2 people) from the judge, and next, after serving only a fraction of her sentence, she will get an early release from the prison system to alleviate overcrowding.

    The bottom lines is, she will likely be back on the street in less than 10 years after carelessly ending 2 lives.

  • Always Outspoken

    Um, don’t look now, but the girl whose a** the judge just kissed with this light sentence is at the very least mixed-raced (if not entirely black), so the racist portion of your rant is ridiculous and without merit.

    Please stop embarrassing yourself.
