Missing in Action

KENOSHA — Scott Carpenter knows the full meaning of the word helpless. The Kenosha businessman watched the family furniture store his father started 42 years ago burn — on livestream video.

“Watching it go up in flames was so surreal. All the inventory that was there, all the memories in there, all the things that were personal, irreplaceable in there,” Carpenter said.

B&L Office Furniture ,in the 1100 block of Kenosha’s 60th Street, was one of dozens of small businesses destroyed or badly damaged in last August’s riots that brought down much of the Lake Michigan city’s Uptown Business District.

It was heartbreaking.

More heartbreaking is knowing that much of the madness could have been prevented.

“I believe if (Gov.Tony Evers) would have called the Guard out right away none of this would have happened. I believe that 100 percent,” Carpenter said.

Watch Scott’s story here.

And tune in to the Vicki McKenna Show beginning at 2 p.m. today on NewsTalk 1130 WISN and 1310 WIBA for a special live broadcast from Kenosha, sponsored by Empower Wisconsin. Watch the show streaming live at facebook.com/empowerwisconsin
