  1. What does his criminal record have to do with anything. This is a young man who made poor choices in life. This is not a way for anyone to go. He was taken from his family.

    1. It has a lot to do with how people react when they read of his choices so far in life. I’m glad he will be off the streets, and I hope the Police can find the shooter(s) to be turned over to the DA to be set free until the next shooting. At least when our waste of O2 DA lets a criminal off, their name goes out for the victim’s family & friends to deal with. Not a good system, but it’s all Kenosha has left. Never would have spiraled down to this if we’d only expanded the trolley and built a casino at the dog track. ;p

  2. Julian pissed off the wrong guy. They probably decided to get justice without bothering with a joke of a Kenosha DA.

    He looks nuts. Whoever did this likely did society a favor.

  3. One less person driving the system from the police to the DA to the assistant DA to the judges, the jailers and life in prison, so you cut your losses and move on
