Tool of the Week: Milwaukee’s remarkable fools

Empower Wisconsin | Jan. 31,  2022

The same people bringing Milwaukee record homicides and “open season” on police officers are now blaming the city’s rash of car thefts on automakers.

As the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board reported last week, “Car thefts in Milwaukee have tripled in the last two years amid a broader descent into public disorder. But rather than chase down the thieves, Democratic aldermen want to sue Kia and Hyundai for making cars that the politicians say are too easy to steal.”

Alderman Khalif Rainey and Alderwoman Milele Coggs have written letters scolding the automakers.

“KIA and Hyundai are directly responsible, in my view, for the drain on police and other city resources that have been sadly directed to deal with the rash of vehicle thefts and the havoc those thefts have brought to our city,” Alderman Rainey said. “It’s time for these companies to fix the problem they created.”

Amazing.

Milwaukee reported more than 10,000 car thefts last year, outpacing even Chicago in the dubious honor. Half of those arrested are juveniles 16 and older. Just 2 percent are prosecuted, said former do-nothing Mayor Tom Barrett, who recently got the hell out of Dodge after President Joe Biden offered him an ambassadorship to Luxembourg.

Milwaukee citizens are victims of the buffoons who lead them, but Milwaukee voters are the reason why they are in positions of power.

Rainey and Coggs are tools in a deadly dysfunctional machine that is turning Milwaukee into a third-world city.

They are, together, Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
