Prayers for healing and ‘an end to the violence that seems to be all around us.’
From the mass shooting at Miller brewing in Feb. 2020 to the pandemic to the unimaginable tragedy at the Waukesha Christmas Parade, this community has endured so much these last two years.
Under his direction, criminals like Darrell Brooks, Jr. have routinely been given shockingly low bail and sweetheart plea agreements or never prosecuted at all. The horror in Waukesha is just now drawing national attention to it, but the Milwaukee area has been living—and dying—for 15 years with the unmitigated disaster of John Chisholm’s making.
If you don’t like the result — and I don’t — then the answer is to change the law, not to throw out or defame our system of justice.
At a recent campaign event, Gov. Tony Evers took a premature victory lap on his 2018 campaign promise to “fix the damn roads.”
That means rolling back expanded aid.
Just 10 months after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, right-wing Republicans are talking openly that the use of force is justifiable to oppose those who wouldn't overturn the 2020 election.
Abandoning NR-151 recommendations a step backward for Wisconsin.
When a person is mowing down our children and grandmothers at a Christmas parade, I want the whole world to stop and take stock of what is happening.

It’s perfectly appropriate to object to the verdict in the Rittenhouse trial.
Had the National Guard been called into Kenosha last year, the entire incident could have been avoided.
Self defense laws and lack of gun control at issue. Is reform possible?
Over the past several years, American citizens have witnessed the all-out attack on the rule of law.
Persuadable, independent parts of the voting public perceives a Democratic Party that is out of touch with their everyday concerns.
President Joe Biden has signed the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed by the Congress into law. And, the Democratic-led House passed the Build Back Better Act.
The message that came from that courtroom was a chilling one for the families of the victims of Kyle Rittenhouse’s killing spree, and for America.
They tried their best to interfere in the Rittenhouse case, but the jurors tasked with actually administering justice refused to let them. Rittenhouse didn’t win so much as justice itself did.
In delivering its verdict, a Wisconsin jury decided that Rittenhouse’s conduct was justified, even though the prosecution argued that he provoked the violent encounter and, therefore, should not be able to find refuge in the self-defense doctrine.
