The aclu and representatives of blm, in a flamboyant news release, said they were suing the Milwaukee Police Department claiming racism is rampant.
The aclu said that car stops and pedestrian stops in the black community are out of proportion with interactions with white residents. This, on it’s face, shows racism.
The Chief responded by giving figures of black on black crime. These show that aggravated assault, murder and shooting occur more frequently in these areas by a margin of over 200% when compared to other areas of the city. Blacks make up 82% of murder offenders. As such the stops are in line when compared to offenders by race.
The Chief said he will continue to police areas where crime is highest by putting more officers in these areas. Makes a lotta sense to me.
The police union, who doesn’t agree with the Chief on all matters, is totally on board with this.
It is indeed refreshing to see a Chief stand up to the bullying tactics of the aclu and their partners in crime the blm crowd.
My this fine man and the men and women of the Milwaukee Police department continue to “Serve and Protect.”
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST!!
