News article and video from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This case shut down any chance for the usual liberal groups to whine police violence before it started. This is also why the video was released almost immediately after the event. Video is two minutes long. Short story is bad guy takes a couple hostage, and later fires five shots committing suicide next to his bound but alive hostages.

Oh, the couple were then also charged with running a drug house. All in all not a bad day.
A bit of background on Milwaukee history. Once a major industrial center for the state, now vacated buildings decaying equipment rusting away, home of once famous Pabst family, German and Polish neighborhoods gone, replaced by a major celebration in May by Mexicans, fifty plus years with democratic mayors promising vote for me and I'll make it better. There are still beautiful lake front homes, but so sad to drive through some neighborhoods and see the contrasting decay. Thus the attached video and news link.

Yup - born and raised here - been my home since 1949. Well......I'm now in the southern suburb of Oak Creek about 20 miles south of the city proper - have been for about 30 years now - but still....I've seen the whole city decay and rot since the mid to late 1960's. Like you said - really sad - it was a thriving and beautiful city at one time - at least 75% - 80% of it anyway.....

Spent a little time in Fond Du Lac. Nice and picturesque and mostly for sale! So many small farms and cow outfits with big signs in the pasture. J

What will it take?

Democrats? The place had 3 socialist mayors and enshrined them as hero's. Makes san Francisco look moderate.
What will it take before the good people decide enough of: he's a juvenile delinquent from a broken home, he's just misunderstood, he shouldn't have been able to get those guns, he's needs a helping hand(welfare check), or pick your excuse. The very best way to control people is to make them dependent on government handouts.....no incentive to even try.
There is an equal problem of those wealthy enough that they push those same disasterous programs because they are insulated in their gated communities.

I can tell you of one family member in an upscale Milwaukee neighborhood that supports total arms confiscation, but lacks a sense of humor. I said fine to his suggestion, then I added a few more comments. Since I didn't turn mine in give me your Rolex, the wife's diamonds, and the keys to your new Cadillac. Oh, don't bother calling the police I'm giving them the diamonds. I thought it was funny.....don't think it works? Look over your shoulder to Mexico.

More trivia, Wisconsin also built WWII submarines and Stewart tanks.
