  1. Cool.

    How many more injury and fatality accidents have to happen on the Green Bay Rd. racetrack before the KSD actually makes an appearance?

      1. Rude.

        I am fully aware it’s on most roads in Kenosha County, however accidents on 31 are splattered across the news.

        1. 31 and 50 would be KPD. Ksd has been sitting at A, and at parkside, and the driveway south of the old Scores heading into Somers. Uwp also sit and watch GB

          1. I drive that way, 31 from 11 down to 52nd St., 6 days a week, 4-5x (or more) a day, and it’s RARE that KSD is out there. If they are, they’re way in back nearly behind a barn SW of E/31.

            Ya know what isn’t rare? Being cut off by people who are easily going 80+ Also, KSD also has jurisdiction at the 50/31 intersection. KSD has jurisdiction in the whole county. KSD jurisdiction doesn’t end where KPD begins.

  2. Once again .. What has this guy done his whole life ?Live off the man MF..If I was a betting man he has a rap sheet long dating back to the 80’s … either way he eating up the taxpayer money .The libs have ruined this county .

      1. Scott Adams made some fair points, but to be fair I also don’t want to be anywhere near the 50% of White people who hate themselves and engage in self-flagellation at every opportunity. Ultimately the core issue is the spiritual sickness of sin and moral depravity.

  3. Again-
    Any time there is a charge listed in CCAP (circuit court page) it should be state law that the state list any government resources going to that house, such as social work, rent assistance, heat assistance, food stamps, etc… also the suspects last 3 w2’s. As taxpayers we deserve to see where our money is going and if the programs are working…
