Tool of the Week: Madison Common Council 

Empower Wisconsin | March 23, 2020

MADISON — The left wing-nut Madison Common Council is often in the running for Tool of the Week. These wacky liberals are constantly doing something tool-worthy.

Perhaps they topped themselves last week when they voted to send 100 police officers to assist in keeping the peace at July’s Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee. 

Presuming the planned coronation of the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate goes on amid the new reality of pandemic social distancing, don’t Madison police have their hands full at home? 

Mad Town officers are dealing with rising violent crime rates, a gang problem and a rash of car thefts. Much of that is thanks to the revolving door of offenders moving in and out of the social justice Dane County Courthouse. Following a recent car theft on the East Side, a police officer said the juvenile delinquents — some as young as 12 — stealing vehicles know there are no consequences for their actions. They know that they’ll be right back on the streets within hours of arrest in most cases, the officer said. And many are quickly back committing crimes — over and over again.

He said police are having a hard time keeping up. It’s not hard to understand why.  

It’s because the dim-witted council has put sunshine-and-rainbow social policies ahead of protecting Madison’s citizens. The council narrowly approved adding a scant three officers in this year’s budget, far less than the department had requested. And it was a battle to get three.

Madison Police Officer Michael Malloy told the Wisconsin State Journal that officers have to work tons of overtime and are sleep-deprived, making them “less efficient and probably less safe.”

“We can’t afford to push public safety funding into the future,” Malloy said. 

But Madison’s city council apparently can afford to send 100 of the community’s finest to protect Democrats in Milwaukee for their week-long party in July. 

What a bunch of tools. 

These obtuse public servants — at least the ones who continuously reject the primary importance of public safety — collectively are Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
