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.

Wisconsin state employees are upset about losing roughly 10% of take-home salary and all rights to bargain on work conditions, but Scott Walker has vowed to save their jobs, which is more than can be said for the poor working stiffs in the in the private sector. For example, Tim Sullivan, CEO of Bucyrus will lose his job this summer, forced to find new employment in a harsh business market. No doubt, Sullivan has been contributing to his own pension and paying for his own insurance since he's been employed as CEO, and he will now be forced to decide between feeding his family and contributing to his retirement, a concern union employees never have to make.

Paramedics were called to the union Sept. 19 when a man said he was having an allergic reaction to his wedding band. The man's finger was swollen, and the ring was cut off. Can we say bad omen? Better than an allergic reaction to his wife's syphilis, anyhow.
