  1. I don’t know if I should call Kenosha “Little Chicago” or ”Little Milwaukee”. If Kenosha residents would start voting in folks who want to seriously punish criminals for their crimes, the state of affairs might improve. For some reason, though, Kenosha people love their good-for-nothing Democrat politicians.

    1. Yeah. let’s have a do over on your commentary.

      ” I don’t know if I should call Kenosha “Little Chicago” or ”Little Milwaukee”. If Kenosha residents would start voting in folks who want to seriously punish “black” criminals for their crimes, the state of affairs might improve. For some reason, though, Kenosha people love their good-for-nothing Democrat politicians.”

      Glad to help.

      1. Well, the majority if violent offenders ARE black, so you backhanded racist comment is somewhat true. Stop virtue signaling and call a spade a spade. No pun intended. Blacks are 13% of the population, but commit 60% of violent crime. But I’m sure stats are racist too.

        1. The Super Bowl half time show was awesome. It is cool that the NFL puts these talented black performers in the spotlight.

          1. Actually, it seemed cruel to choose a snooze of a performer when folks were trying to stay awake after too much 1st half food & beverage, while waiting for the game to resume.

        1. I enjoyed and was very happy to hear the Black National Anthem being performed before the Super Bowl!

  3. i am sick and tired of all the violence in Kenosha. We need electors who will punish criminals so they are afraid to commit crimes! I am tired of being afraid to walk alone or drive my car on certain streets.

    1. “If violent crime is to be curbed, it is only the intended victim who can do it. The felon does not fear the police, and he fears neither judge nor jury. Therefore what he must be taught to fear is his victim.” (Jeff Cooper) Shoot back!

    2. Retired Friends I know in Arizona are afraid to walk outside at night alone or as a group because of the influx of people from Mexico.
      It doesn’t matter if people are black, brown, white or yellow. Or any color you want to think that people’s skin is, criminals need punishment as a deterrent. And no cash bail or reduced bail lets them out to commit more crimes.
      Don’t want to spend money on jails to house un tried suspects ?
      Then spend more money on judges to get speedier trials and justice.
      It’s criminals that don’t fear incarceration that are the problem. Put them in jail and crime will be less regardless of the criminals color.

  4. Has Gravely announced he’s going to recuse his office from charging the person responsible for this shooting yet?

  5. People being all political over shit…..how about pushing that aside & just vote who you think will get the job done! The comment about being harsher on criminals to help stop the violence…..the only solution is the death penalty because these people out here don’t care about going to prison for real! It’s just another home for them.

  6. Black on Black crime is the way of the US .. The Dems won’t call it out .. need black votes .typical blue soft on crime city . Weak gay DA who likes black dudes .. no body gets charged .. nothing to see here ..Just like the clown not running for reelection .. let BLM burn down the city .. then sides with the criminals who caused the damage .. I will not vote for any mayoral candidate ..

  7. You are now seeing up close what is happening in other Democratic cities ! We are half way between two or the largest liberal crime centers in the country . With August 2020 has a back drop and no prosecution it’s a sign to criminals to come set up shop . We need community leaders ! Not liberal politicians who push and maintain a socalist agenda . You get what to VOTE for ! If you want crime in the streets and kenosha becoming just like Chicago. Keep pulling that democrat handle

  8. These comments are getting worse by the second. Democrat this Democrat that. You think these criminals give a shit about politics?
    People in this city act like we have a population of 500. It’s over 100,000 at this point and unfortunately there’s going to be more crime. But I don’t hide in my house thinking this city is being overran with ” violent democratics” who are trying to
    ruin the city! Quit fear mongering yourselves and others. Go take a walk, see the lake, turn off Fox News.
