One good reason why I try to stay the heck out of Milwaukee.
It happens everywhere these days. Just the other day around Dayton, Ohio, a 16 year old boy and 17 year old girl broke into a house with intentions of stealing a car. The mom and daughter were home. So they hid and spent the night waiting for them to leave the next day. The mom went to work but the daughter was home as she had surgery earlier. When they seen her they tied her up and tortured her. Shaved her head and beat her with a ball bat. She pleaded with them to not beat her in the head as she had brain surgery. So they shaved her head, beat her in the head numerous times, made her walk (presumebly not clothed) out in the freezing cold and snow, beat her some more, etc. I guess this went on for hours. They did not kill her but the news has really not said (or at least I have not heard) how her condition is. The two were caught and the Sheriff on the news stated that the two acted like they were the modern day Bonnie & Clyde. And showed no remorse what-so-ever for what they did. If convicted, they could get 75-100 years. Personally, I am an "eye for an eye type". Beat them both with a bat for an hour or so, before they ever make it to the courtroom. Let the mom and daughter have the bat. Something really needs to be done with society before the older generation that was corrected by our parents all die off. Once this new generation of kids (the ones that KNOW that you are not allowed to touch them or they will sue you for everything) takes over, then the way crime is in this world will only get worse. The wife was listening to the news last evening, and if I remember right, she stated that the statistics are something like 1 in every 100 people are in prison and the ratio for blacks is something like 1 in every 15. I don't know how many is on death row, but the populatin gets higher and higher every day. So we keep throwing bandaids and blindfols on the problems and people hoping it will go away. And I know as well as most others on here. When you were growing up, you had a respect for your elder, parents, and the law. You got in trouble somewhere, you just knew what was gong to happen when your parents found out. I am not condoning abuse, but you had a real fear of getting your *** busted by either parent. Or if you got your butt cracked in school, you really hated going hope because what was going to happen then. Put prayer back iin the schools and put correction back into the hands of parents. Keep some of these lawmakers out of the equation for awhile and see if things would not turn theirselves around.
