Wisconsin police officers quitting in droves

We are losing law enforcement officers at an unsustainable rate. Officers have left or are leaving the profession in significant numbers. Milwaukee police say they experienced a spike in retirements over the summer and early fall.

Madison’s acting Chief of Police Vic Wahl recently said that Madison has faced a bigger than average number of departures. He attributed these retirements, in part, to “the negative media narrative about policing and a vocal activist community that is anti-police.” …

It seems intuitive that a smaller police presence leads to increased crime, since criminals will believe their likelihood of getting caught decreases. And that’s what the data reflect.

One study found that an increased police presence reduces robbery, larceny, auto theft, and perhaps even murder. Another study discovered that a greater police presence reduces violent crime and property crime.

    Long before Wisconsin police officers started quitting in droves, qualified, dedicated Wisconsin teachers were quitting in groves. Thank you, Scott Walker, for destroying the Wisconsin public school system. You are responsible for no one of quality entering the Wisconsin public school System. What a legacy!! what a disgrace!!!

      Wrong. Good and dedicated teachers are leaving in droves because they are now being treated as cogs in a machine which treats children as mindless automatons. Bad and cynical teachers can still somehow deal with this abuse, collect their paychecks, and go along to get along. It isn’t the bad teachers who are walking, it’s the gifted and idealistic ones.
      End of story.

      Teachers quitting in droves? Why? Because they had to pay for half their pension contributions like almost every other person does? The good dedicated teachers, of which there are many, still remain in Wisconsin. No thanks to the misguided teachers unions. Or the former head of the DPI, our current incompetent governor.

          George Schultz – Here’s a comment to the spot-on YT rant (2.8K upvotes and 11 downvotes) by YoungRippa59 that Gg Mo provided a link to in different earlier post:

          “I’m a respiratory therapist, I hate when they call us hero’s (sic.) I’m just doing my job, If they can’t handle the stress than maybe they should work on their time management skills.”

          With all due respect, I think it’s clear that your daughter chose the wrong job. And yet some of us need to literally pay with our very lives with this insanity because she is not cut out for the job she’s been hired to do? How does that compute? Did you bother to read or process the links I gave you to read? Hmmmm…..didn’t think so.

          I have no need to meet with your daughter, I’ve been reading the same kind of BS on Medpage for months. Why would any reasonable person want to spend time listening to more self-centered whining from someone who obviously just needs to find a different job?

          How To Show Americans Lockdowns Are Killing More People Than The Virus
          We need a lives-for-lives analysis of the public health costs of the Democrats’ lockdowns.

          “More and more medical professionals are recognizing the severe damage the lockdowns have caused to present and future public health. A worldwide collection of medical and public health experts has just issued a declaration stating that current ‘lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health’ and that to keep ‘these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.’”

          Trump-Hating leftists are using this disease to torment and kill Americans in hopes they can blame our President. DemokkkRATs are political monsters.

      You using the word “boilerplate” to describe the Gotch’s comments is about as ignorant as it comes.

      I think it’s really “interesting” how, after the political left didn’t get their way in the 2016 Presidential election, the political left started a new precedence on how a President of the United States and anyone that supports the President should be treated by the opposition and their lapdog media and they continued that precedence for four years straight and now the political left wants them and their President to be treated in a different way than the new precedence that they set? Transparent double standards and open hypocrisy are prominent character flaws of the political left in the 21st century.

      I’m not much for using a tit-for-tat rationalization myself; however, I not going to fault the political right too much for continuing the same Presidential treatment precedence that the political left started. The modern Democratic Party led by extremist progressives and the irrational and violent social justice henchmen they empowered employed an unending scorched earth policy against a President of the United States and his supporters for four straight years and those choices are coming back to roost on their pompous-ass heads and dig their talons straight into the foreheads of the political left; choices have consequences. As the rhetorical blood drips down the political left’s forehead they will be forced at every turn to remember that the political left made their bed and is now estoppled* from complaining about being treated badly.

      Estoppel: the principle which precludes a person from asserting something contrary to what is implied by a previous action or statement of that person or by a previous pertinent judicial determination.

      Here’s my message to Joe Biden, Democratic Party politicians and those that support the Democrats right now, you’re f***ed and it’s your own fault. Suck it up buttercup.

    Geez Donald, if you want to pontificate about social issues that have nothing to do with our Police Officers quitting in droves then please find another forum that is about that subject and pontificate away.

    According to heyjackass.com the death rate for those dying of covid in Chicago is 2.13%. The death rate in Chicago by “high speed lead” is 17.0%. Now why do you suppose that is? In the town I come from, everybody owned at least one gun, many had a whole lot of guns, I’m talking about 20 or more, and yet no one died from being shot to death unless it was an accident, which didn’t happen all that often.

    Point I’m trying to make is that you either have good decent people who believe that when they die, they will be judged and go to eternal Heaven or eternal Hell; or you have a robust, highly staffed police department that keeps the public order.

    Otherwise, the way I see it, all you have is anarchy.

    Imagine if you were a Police Officer and knew that the people you were Policing thought nothing of killing one another and would wear it as a badge of honor to kill you. Would you go into a situation like that, like a lamb being led to slaughter, or would you be the lion ready to tear someone apart who even looked like they would do you harm?

    Imagine if we treated people in the medical profession the way we treat Police Officers. Why would anyone want to be a Doctor when they knew that every decision they made would be second guessed by committees of uninformed people who have never had to Doctor to anyone, and would be in a position of determining whether the Doctor kept their job or not? This, when the decision the Doctor had to make in the O.R. had to be done in a split second while the committee had all the time in the world to make the decision to fire the Doctor or not?

    Also, I have found that a distinct lack of respect for Police Officers leads many people into trouble. I am a white man in his 60’s and in the rare times I have been pulled over by the Police I roll down my window, turn off the car, throw the keys on the dashboard, and get my papers out in my left hand and put my right hand on the wheel so the Officer can see that I am of no threat to them.

    Why do I do this? Because I want the Officer to know that I pose no threat to their person and am willing to comply with whatever lawful order they have. If we do have a disagreement, that is what lawyers are for. And I address the Officer as “Yes Sir or Yes Mam” not in a disrespectful manner as many do today.

    So far, haven’t had a ticket yet.

    My daughter works at a hospital here in Madison. She came home tonight and collapsed in her mother’s arms totally exhausted and crying. She works in the Covid wing and has not had a day off in weeks. She is tired, depleted, and demoralized are most of her fellow nurses. Don’t quote us death rate statistics until you and see what Amy sees every day. She has held the hands of people who have gasped their last breath and died while their relatives have to wait at home because they can not be with them.

      Your decidedly unhinged diatribe makes no mention of the liquor stores, pot dispensaries, and STRIP CLUBS which are allowed to remain open.

      While, per Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch:

      Members of this Court are not public health experts, and we should respect the judgment of those with special expertise and responsibility in this area.

      “But even in a pandemic, THE CONSTITUTION CANNOT BE PUT AWAY AND FORGOTTEN.

      “The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty.”

The other two links he posted are also invaluable for those who only partake of MSM information but I didn’t think you would allow that information into your awareness.

      Your last heartstring tugging post is micro analysis when macro is by far the more legitimate perspective.

      It is quite remarkable Donald that you do not understand that hearing about or witnessing people dying from covid (likely with multiple comorbidities/elderly) does not in any way shape or form bolster your argument for massive ongoing shutdown.

      You are just here to attack these people, and you think you have found a real “plum” with this Covid 19 argument. Why do I get the feeling that you support the idea of thousands, standing shoulder to shoulder, loudly chanting and exercising their right to protest – but fearfully clutch your pearls at the idea of families and close friends gathering together? (and endangering you and your grandchildren as a result) You demonstrate (along with most of the population) an ignorance of viruses, their modes of transmission, and possible vectors. Perhaps Mr Blaska will choose “The Virus” as a topic sometime, and we can discuss. Re masks: Most masks are little more than “virtue signalling” in their use. Their differential permeability is such that a virus goes right through it, stopping only macro-droplets, that you continue to suck at with every successive breath. If YOU have the virus, sneezes, coughs, and exhalations just “blow out” the edges of the mask. Again, macro-drops are caught to some extent, but with each breath they are re-aerosolized, and blown out the sides. For maximum efficacy, masks must be changed as often as possible. Question — When you speak about you, your family, and your grandchildren being threatened by exposure to one of us —You’re not together…..right?

    Amos,
    Thanks for the link to the Cost of Lockdowns https://www.aier.org/article/cost-of-us-lockdowns-a-preliminary-report/. More importantly, in that link was another link to an article about Joe Biden wanting a national medical supply commander to supply medical facilities with the supplies they need to operate. https://www.aier.org/article/medical-supplies-are-too-important-to-leave-to-a-national-supply-commander/.

    To be blunt: That is a totally insane idea.

    With all the different specialized fields of medicine how could any one person know what each of those fields will need, how much to produce and supply to all the different medical facilities across the country?

    It reminds me of the old Arab Proverb of allowing a camel to stick his nose under the tent and soon finding you are sleeping with the whole camel or kicked outside the tent as the camel has taken over the whole tent.

    Perhaps he will assign the job to A.O.C.! No better person to carry out a bat shit crazy idea than someone who is bat shit crazy herself!

    This is socialism. No other way to put it.

    Amos, thanks again for the link. I will be sure to pass that along to the nursing supply manager as well as the executives at the medical facility I work at for their consideration.

      Bill – You’re welcome. But the thanks really go to AIER which I think has been – far and away – the best single source in regards to Covid since March. A ton of excellent articles examining so many different aspects of this issue. Jeffrey Tucker, in particular, has been a one-man army in discussing the reality of Covid since it first hit. In a just world, he would be awarded some kind of international medal when all the smoke clears from this insanity.

      Either that, or we just move on to the next item on the agenda for Big Pharma, with the next mandatory vaccine. Any prediction on which it will be? (And yes, I was disconcerted to read David’s apparent approval of this in his TG message.)

      I’m interested in what your execs say to you after you give them this article.

      Bill – From your linked AIER article re: supply lines.

      “Real-world medical supply lines overseen by a National Supply Commander will differ from those in Biden’s dreams. It is no secret that the politically powerful use that political power to punish their enemies, reward their friends, and otherwise make people get with the program. The chance to use the National Supply Commander’s office for political purposes will be too tempting to pass up.”

      Kind of like the international mass drive for more ventilators which ended up killing so many patients? Hard to make any money off of just having the patients roll over onto their stomachs.
