Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
This morning, Milwaukee’s mayor and police chief stood with police officers at a news conference, announcing the hunt was on for the mother and son. Mayor Tom Barrett gave a strong statement, asking the mother to turn herself and her son in, and if they didn’t, the officers alongside him would find them before the day was through.
How screwed up is this family?: The mother gives a gun to her 16-year old son who then uses it to shoot three people.
Unconscionable anywhere else in Wisconsin. Just another day in Milwaukee’s inner city.
Watch the Fox 6 News video.
Prepare for the usual litany of excuses along with misplaced blame:
1) We have too many guns.
2) There aren’t enough jobs.
3) There’s nothing for teenagers to do.
4) It’s society’s fault.
5) There aren’t enough government programs.
6) Schools need more money.
7) We’re too racist.
8) These people need help, not punishment.
To be blunt, it's all a bunch of garbage.
No need to overanalyze this case. Want to point fingers? Start with Mother of the Year and violent son. Throw in the breakdown of the family, a total lack of respect for life or fellow man, and the simple fact that there just are evil people in the world. They need to be punished, not coddled.
Then, of course, there’s this little matter that no one wants to talk/do anything about.
