Anywho, Mark Belling, in his GMToday column last week has a little bit complaining about how the state is trying to actually save money by avoiding a lot of court costs and moving some cases involving 17 year olds back to the jurisdiction of the juvenile code.
In his rampage, he comes up with this (emphasis mine):
It’s not surprising that the bill is sponsored by some Milwaukee County Democrats like Sen. Lena Taylor, as they are chronically soft on crime and sympathetic to their increasingly influential gang bosses. It’s more surprising the legislation is co-sponsored by suburban Democrats like Sen. Jim Sullivan of Wauwatosa and Rep. Tony Staskunas of West Allis.
With people like Belling advocating for Walker, Senator Taylor's chances can only improve.
The Prince of Pundits, Mike Mathias was more timely with this story, and a commenter on his post makes a good point:
I thought it was Scott Walker who wanted to let everyone out of jail.
In fact I know it is Scott Walker who wants to let everyone out of jail.
Now what gang member isn't going to support that.
Sir Zachary the Blue also adds his valuable insight to the right's issue with people of color that isn't white.
