Is Madison’s ‘school-to-prison pipeline’ forcing kids to steal?

Cover me; I’m going in for groceries

ANNOUNCEMENT: David Blaska is selling his naming rights to the highest bidder. We like the sound of “American Family Insurance Blaska.” Do I hear $100? Badda- badda badda — a-hunnert, a-hunnert, a-hunnert … Fifty, fifty, fifty …

We devote the remainder of today’s snowbound edition to Madison’s notorious School-to-Prison pipeline. Personally, we blame the police, implicit racism, and the NFL referees in that Rams-Saints game. We take this directly from the Madison Police daily incident report:

1) Tuesday, 01/22/2019 – 7:31 AM [a school day for some]
Male, age 15, Madison; Teen was arrested for operating a motor vehicle without owner’s consent and resisting.

A Berkshire Road resident started her Range Rover this morning and left it unattended outside of her home for a few minutes while it warmed up. That was enough time for two teens to jump in the luxury SUV and take off. A MPD officer spotted the Range Rover shortly after 8 a.m. and followed it as it turned into the McDonald’s parking lot on Odana Rd.

The suspects jumped out, but did not put the Range Rover in park. It rolled into another parked car, causing an accident. The MPD officer chased after the driver who eventually ran into Memorial High School where he was arrested and taken to the Juvenile Reception Center.

2) Tuesday, 01/22/2019 – 7:28 AM
600 block Struck St.
A mother had left her blue 2012 Chevy Equinox unlocked and running this morning as she took her child into a daycare in the 600 block of Struck St. When she got back outside, her SUV was gone. The daycare has no outside cameras, and there is no suspect information.

3) Monday 01/21/2019 – 10:48 AM
Odana Rd @ Odana Ln (Bus stop)
Suspect(s): Lighter-skinned m/b, younger, possibly around 20 years old, approximately 6’3″, really skinny, wearing a dark colored thin jacket and dark pants.

Victim(s): Adult female
The victim was waiting for a bus in the bus stop on Odana Rd by Odana Ln when the suspect came up to her, asked her something, then grabbed her purse that was on the bench next to her and ran to a darker red SUV-type vehicle. He was getting into the passenger side door and the victim followed, trying to grab at the purse to get it back.  The suspect pushed her down to the ground and got into the vehicle, which left the scene. The purse was located nearby but it was empty and contents gone. The victim was uninjured.

4) It appears likely this suspect had first attempted a strong-armed robbery at Woodman’s at 711 S. Gammon Rd. In that case the female adult victim held onto the purse and was dragged about 15 feet before the suspect let go and got into the passenger side door of a burgundy Ford Escape which had been reported stolen in early January.  The victim was uninjured in that case. The driver of the vehicle in that incident was reported to be a m/b. This occurred at approximately 10:35 am.

5) At approximately 10:45 am there was another attempted strong-armed robbery in the parking lot of Hy-Vee at 675 S. Whitney Way where a young m/b suspect which the victim thought to be less than high school-age tried to grab the purse off the shoulder of an adult female who was putting groceries in her vehicle. After she yelled the suspect left without the purse and got into the passenger side of a darker red SUV, which left.

From there it seems they went directly to the bus stop at Odana Rd/Odana Ln and committed the strong-armed robbery.

The stolen burgundy Ford Escape mentioned in the Woodman’s robbery incident was recovered in Sun Prairie this evening. The investigation of all three of these robbery incidents is ongoing at this time.

Are you following this?

6) 2:13 p.m. Tuesday 01-22-19 — Officers responded to Memorial High School for a disturbance.  It was reported that two subjects/suspects (two 17-year-old AAMs) were “play fighting.”  The “play fight” subsequently escalated to a real fight.

A victim (17-year-old AAM) sustained visible injuries and required stitches, as a result of the fight. After an investigation took place and video evidence was reviewed, one of the suspects was charged with disorderly conduct and substantial battery.  The other suspect was cited with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and released.

Blaska’s Bottom LineCould we add drivers’ ed to the restorative justice program?

    if only diane hendricks would pop them a million dollars for their criminal defense fund, maybe they could live a nice quiet life in a Milwaukee condo.

    I find it not the least bit surprising that anyone who doesnt look like you is a criminal and needs to be prosecuted to full extent of the law and those who have an R behind their name are just subjects of witch hunts.

      Aw Li’l Jeffy, sometimes youse just hold yer hands back and BEG to get pasted; it’d be poor manners not to oblige, am I right?

      When Lefties commit Civil Rights violations like Voter suppression and Voter intimidation, hate crimes to the elderly, and felony criminal damage to property (FELONIES!!!) in Milwaukee, Big Momma HoR Gwen Moore gets them (heh) off with a slap on the wrist.

      Especially when one of ’em is her ACORN-trained son Sowande Omokunde, whom, in an inexplicable twist of fate, received the lightest sentence because, welp, just because!

      ”Besides when did the Republicans in our state care about people stealing vans?”

      They shoulda taken a page from Lefty’s playbook and just slit the tires.

      Ah Lefty; so MUCH hypocrisy, so little time!

      Jeff wondering how you’d feel if your wife was the victim who was dragged 15 ft while she attempted to get her purse back. No consequences for those committing these crimes gives them permission to commit more crimes. Very familiar with the incident at Hy-Vee on Whitney Way. The SUV in question is seen on surveillance cameras going up and down rows in the parking lot looking for a victim. Be careful what you wish for Jeff…..

      Your constant public race baiting and outright accusations of racism is going to get you in trouble one of these days.

      Prove your racist innuendo Jeff or do what you seem to do best, run for the hills with your cowardly rhetorical tail between your legs.

      There’s a school to prison pipeline in “Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Pennsylvania”; I’d like to see your proof of that.

      Here’s the cold hard truth Bill, we have the same pipeline to prison here in Wisconsin as all the other states, if you’re stupid enough to do the crime you’ll end up doing the time. It’s actually a stupidity to prison pipeline and there is nothing you can do to fix stupid.

          No Richard, anyone with an ounce of integrity knows that it’s petty to attack the choice of anonymity, it’s a very troll’ish thing to do. By the way, what you wrote was also another in a long line of ad hominems from you, your constant attacking the messenger ad hominems is a very troll’ish thing to do.

          Let’s apply the kind of logic that the troll richard lesiak just used to another criminal situation – rape.

          “A woman dressed like a prostitute, staggering drunk, walking down an unlit bike path at 2:00am? Now that’s stupid. If she had taken some responsibility, maybe she wouldn’t be a victim.”

          The logic is the same. Both the car owner and the woman are stupid. The perception by progressives and social justice warriors is entirely different! Progressives and social justice warriors will tar and feather the rapist that takes advantage of the stupid woman, and rightfully so, but those exact same progressives and social justice warriors will blame the car owner, smear the police for arresting the car thief, and rationalize the actions of the car thief trying to justify it. Progressives and social justice warriors are more “stupid” than the stupid car owner and the stupid woman because they constantly present the same idiotic rationalizations justifying criminal behavior expect the public to just bow to their intellectually obtuse pompousness.

      You were challenged Bill, you’ve been back to this thread and commented elsewhere but you haven’t presented a shred of evidence to support your ludicrous claim; I can only conclude that you’re a liar making up stuff like most progressives and you’re a rhetorical coward for not supporting your argument when challenged.
