It’s hard to fathom Milwaukee continuing to be so violent when they have a man like Sheriff David Clarke at the helm. Oh yeah… the city is run by Progressive Democrats. Silly me. Their penalties are far too lenient and since most crime there is committed by repeat offenders, it’s almost like catch and release. They just go back out and get even more violent.
Milwaukee just had their deadliest month in 25 years. 24 people were either shot, stabbed or beaten to death last month. They will still have a long way to go to catch up with Chicago, but they are evidently working on it. You can have the best police force in the world, but if the laws and penalties suck, you get this. Plus, Black Lives Matter is running amok there.
From the Conservative Tribune:
During a Thursday afternoon news briefing in Milwaukee, Police Chief Edward Flynn revealed that in August, the city recorded its “deadliest month” in 25 years.
A total of 24 men and women were beaten, stabbed or shot to death last month in the Democrat-controlled city, he announced, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, though he noted that the vast majority of the crimes involved individuals with prior records.
“The biggest driver of our homicides is arguments and fights and retaliation among people with criminal records,” he said. “Some of our challenge is simply consistently being able to deter armed offending through the criminal justice system. The penalties are too weak.”
Tracey Dent who is an activist there is ticked. “I host a lot of ‘Stop the Violence’ events with very little support because people will say … ‘nothing’s going to change,’” she remarked. “Twenty-four homicides in one month and there’s no outrage? That’s a problem.” You’re damn right it’s a problem. Apathy is a cancer and it looks like Milwaukee is infected. The root cause here is black-on-black crime and Dent is trying to address that. Hers is a lonely voice it looks like.
“The fact remains the overwhelming problem facing this city is violent crime, homicidal violent crime,” Dent said. “That is most significant in afflicting our disadvantaged neighborhoods of color.” The media, instead of helping Dent and others get the word out, spends their time covering it up and blaming it on guns. People weren’t just shot – they were stabbed and beaten to death. They’ll probably try and outlaw knives, but outlawing fists? Good luck with that.
The last time Milwaukee had a Republican mayor was in 1916 and it shows. Until Milwaukee faces the truth about why people are dying in their streets and stops listening to Marxists, nothing will indeed ever change.
