Milwaukee lawmakers introduced a measure last week that will more accurately reflect the true crime rate in Milwaukee. They say people have a misconception that an average citizen in the Milwaukee is in danger of being killed in random acts of violence. However, city officials have been arguing for years that most city of Milwaukee murder victims probably deserved it, and that people should not be afraid of certain neighborhoods or malls based merely on a few “unfortunate situations propagated on criminals who later became victims, and then whose family members become criminals to avenge the victimization of a criminal,” said the official report from City Hall.

 

Milwaukee had 105 murders in 2007, and it has been in or near the top ten for murder rate over the last twenty years. But the Common Council has stated that though Milwaukee fairs poorly when compared to similar-sized cities such as Seattle, Portland, Austin, and San Diego, if murders of criminals were to be devalued in the rate, Milwaukee’s image would recover.

I’ve lived in West Allis since I was born, and though I’m no mechanic or anything, I do appreciate a loud V8 engine. However, when I was watching a race last week, I started wondering how I could rig my Monte Carlo to make fire like the ones on TV. Obviously, I don’t want a rocket on my car—I just want it to send a little fire out the tailpipes when I pass someone on Highway 100. Is that too much to ask? So I went to Autozone and asked someone there if they had a device to make fire come out of my car. The guy told me they don’t sell such a product and that it would probably not be street legal.

Dear Biker Chick I've been seeing a woman for almost a year now and it's been time to break-up since autumn. I kept seeing her through the holidays because I didn't want to be "that guy" who breaks up just before it's time to buy a present. Now, just a few days after New Year's she's talking about what we should do for Valentine's Day. I really want to break-up with her, but she's making it pretty hard. How can I do this without her feeling bad or me being an asshole. Signed Too Nice Dear Too Nice Try growing a set. Tell her she's nice but just not in the right place at the right time for you. If she asks about maybe getting back together in the future, she's basically asking to be told she's not the right one. You can say it mean, or you can say it nice, but say it. And stop being a whiney little weasel. I know you just wanted the holiday nookie.
