43% of all of accused murderers in Marion County were either on pre-trial release or awaiting sentencing when they committed the alleged homicides. 43%!!!

I wrote a paper for a Poly Sci class in 1976. It was 100 days of killings in the City of Chicago where the criminals were out early due to jail over crowding, had jumped bail, or were on parole. All I needed for reference was the Chicago Sun Times and the Chicago Tribune. Amazingly, ZERO people were were killed on the streets of Chicago by the violent criminals that were still behind bars.

Looks like things have stayed the same since then.

I've said it before but the problem I see with Judges elected by the people is this.. Most honest law abiding citizens see names listed on a ballot and have no idea who it is. Those who have been in front of a judge or have seen family in front of a judge that they felt gave them a break, are likely to vote in favor of them. Most of us law abiding look at names and basically just pick from the list and hope for the best.
You are right. Because judges are supposed to be detached from politics, you do not see much reporting on them. The only time you see their names in print is when they are on a high profile case or when a lot of people are complaining about something they do, or something they did wrong.

IMHO, the media should hold the judges & prosecutors feet to the fire more often. When they put a violent criminal back out on the street and they commit more violence, the media should share what the view was of the prosecutor on the release and make it known what judge it was.

The media is complicit. Look at the caliber of people that they turn into "heroes".

Even though this is terrible thing to happen,Im glad no gun was used.
Maybe the dumb*** liberals will figure out that its not the gun but the person that does bad things.
Probably Not!
That would be wishful thinking. None of what happened in Waukesha fits in their box so they can't wrap it up with a nice bow on top.
The left goes after the object (guns). As Rush would say, "symbolism over substance." The left isn't capable of object thought and logic. They have a constant petulant manner about themselves.

The murderer in Waukesha said this, "“I didn’t have a father growing up, so my mom was stuck raising me and my older sister. We were on welfare for most of my childhood,”

“My father was an alcoholic who was very abusive to my mom. My father’s dad was also an alcoholic,” he wrote. “I grew up in the inner-city full of drugs and prostitution.”

Our government entitlement programs incentivize this lifestyle and creates super predators, just like Hillary Rodham-Clinton stated years ago. These are young, fatherless boys/men, mostly Black, who have grown up with no skin in the game, no repercussions for bad behavior, no respect for property, work, or even life.

It isn't about race. It isn't about poverty. It's about a life where you don't have t work, don't want to work and take what you want when you want it and how you want it. Forget about school. Not needed. Government provides free stuff because you are entitled to it. So what's the difference if they just take some other stuff? They're entitled to that too.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions. The government entitlements were meant to be good things but he unintended consequences will never be faced. The good intentions creates one man crime waves that kill, beat, rape, and steal and nobody wants to face that fact.

Were they? Or were they what LBJ said they were, to keep (n-words) voting Democrat for the next 200 years?
To the people who vote in these communists, they think they are and were designed to be good things.

Even today, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, they still believe that somehow the government can be a national charity and redistribute the wealth of the nation for the greater good.

Things may have to get MUCH worse before they get better, but eventually people will come to their senses. Yesterday my friend informed me that the latest elections in Seattle, threw out the Mayor and most of the city council. If SEATTLE finally got tired of the idiocy of the socialists, perhaps the fine people of Marion County will get tired of OUR socialists and throw them out, too.

We can only hope. Word on the street is Mears is going to run for Mayor next election, and the crime rate and how Hogsett "let it happen" is going to be his platform. Too bad a lot of people will overlook his complicity in the crime rate because of the "D" next to his name.

Yeah, I think just a couple nights of rioting and the highest murder rate in decades is going to dissuade the average Democrat voter to dump the Democrats' agenda. It's going to get plenty worse - which is not something I wish on you and your fellows.

I wonder if anybody from the Wisconsin machine has visited the prosecutor up there and suggested he resign.

Would they just use the same guy they sent to tell him to throw the book at Rittenhouse back when they thought that was the smart play?

Machines usually have lawyers who pass messages from the machine dressed up as "legal advice", all deniable and of course billable.;)

I am not one for lawsuits, however I think that the families should sue the city, the prosecutor & the judge. They should be held accountable for this!!!

There is no legal "duty" to do one's job well or correctly, be it cop, firefighter, DA or judge.
