Coming soon to your neighborhood
The beneficiaries of Madison progressives’ War On Cops were doing some outreach work in Orchard Ridge early this morning. The police report:
At 2:23 am 07-22-21, Madison Police were dispatched to a residence in the 5500 block of Barton Road for a residential burglary. One of the residents discovered that her purse and other items … had been taken and some of those items were scattered on the lawn. While officers were investigating, two separate homes in the 5300 block of Dorsett Drive, which is nearby, reported a male suspect trying to gain entry into their homes, but he was not able to gain entry. At this time, the suspect is at large.
Imagine it is YOUR home, it’s two-thirty in the morning, you’ve been awakened by noises. Someone has invaded YOUR home. While you were ASLEEP! Maybe with children in the next bedroom. Your purse, your credit cards, identification, garage door opener, HOUSE KEYS have been stolen. Never mind the cash. The neighborhood association has scheduled an on-line meeting with police 6 p.m. 07-27-21. Wonder if our newly elected alder will attend?
Pin the tail on the donkey
Which is why Blaska is frustrated with candidates for local office who get the faints rather than do voters a service by calling out their opponents for what they are. Because 10th district Ald. Yannette Figueroa Cole is Progressive Dane, Our Wisconsin Revolution, endorsed by the Socialists and by The Cops-Out-of-Schools Capital Times. Wants to “reimagine policing.” In a test vote this week, voted against police body cameras.
Which is why the Werkes is cheering Detroit MI police chief James Craig. He may be America’s next Eric Adams! Think back 13 months ago. Downtown Madison was trashed. Kenosha burned, along with Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, New York, and other cities. But not Detroit!
Chief Craig tells why:
I grew up right here in Detroit during the ’67 riots, watching tanks rolling down these streets. I remember snipers on the roofs. I was with the Los Angeles Police Department when the Rodney King riots happened. The police retreated, and let their city burn.
Since I’ve been chief of police in Detroit, the police have never retreated. We are here to protect our citizens.
When I came home to run the Detroit Police Department, it was in shambles. Morale, equipment – it all needed help. The response time to 911 calls was an hour, if you were lucky. I started with Colony Arms – the epicenter of crime in Detroit. I made it an example. We mounted an assault. Twenty to thirty arrests later, we cleaned it up. It showed that the police force was back in Detroit and that we never again would allow criminals to rule our city.
I was the first in that day, leading from the front. Then, I went into the city and met with every group I could find. Developed trust, showed what leadership could do.
So, when the unfortunate situation happened with George Floyd, and outsiders came here to try and burn us down, Detroit did not burn.
No liberal woke-ism!
Craig is thinking of running for governor of Michigan as a Republican.
“I grew up a Democrat. But then I watched as Democrats allowed our cities to riot, to burn, and to fail. I watched as they pushed handouts that increase dependency on the government for political gain. And what the Democratic Party stands for today – liberal woke-ism and a perpetual victimhood mentality – those are NOT my values.
Blaska’s Bottom Line question:
