The African Diaspora Council and UWM Police Department partnered again to collect and buy supplies for the students at LaFollette school in Milwaukee. This is the fourth year of that collaboration, however this year enough money and supplies were raised to also provide supplies to LaFollette and Hopkins Lloyd Community School.

During this pandemic year the supplies included Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer, and cloth masks as well as student backpacks, scissors, chalk, folders, and other regular classroom supplies. On Friday October 9, 2020 UWM Police used their squads to deliver the supplies to each school.

In honor of all the men and women who lost their lives on 9/11, including the first responders who answered the call on that fateful morning. We will never forget!

“On this day… 19 years (September 10th) ago, 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.”

Milwaukee police deputy makes racist comment on interracial couple relationship status 👀😬😔
They drill “if you see something, say something,” into all of us. But that is apparently not true at UW-Milwaukee. My daughter was a lab assistant tonight in the digital lab in Mitchell Hall and had an issue with what appeared to be a mentally ill woman show up twice asking for help. D locked the door and called campus police. They said, “yeah, we know about her but she’s pretty harmless.” D asked 👮‍♀️ to walk the students out and they refused. (This is 9:45 pm) Really disappointed at this. The woman may be harmless, until she’s not. If she’s not a student, why is she in the lab and lounge?
Excuse my vent for a moment. This evening at 6:39 while driving home westbound on Edgewood, a member of the UWM Police Dept in a Ford Explorer (i did not get the number) travelling eastbound towards me made a fast u-turn at Summit Ave. There are two key points here. a: he used no turn signal and b: I had to brake fairly hard because of his maneuver. Then, after travelling 40 or 50 feet now westbound on Edgewood in front of me, he hit the brakes and THEN pulled over to the curb... Again with no signal of his intention, again making me brake suddenly. Now I have two choices while driving to express my displeasure with another driver: either my middle finger extended (which I don't do), or to honk, which I did. He then came off the curb after me and pulled up next to me at the stop sign at Downer Ave. to ask me what my problem was. I simple said "turn signal please" to which he said he had it on. He most certainly did not. And proceeded to tell me that I was looking for any excuse to honk at him. And that I had my hand over the horn before he did anything. Well Sir, I was not, and I did not. I honked because you did something wrong and illegal that had a direct effect on me. I generally support the police, and the UWM police (because if there is a problem with UWM students in our neighborhood you come and take care of it). But if you do something illegal and wrong, then own up to it and move on. Don't try to call a member of the public who saw you do something wrong a liar to his/her face. I was simply going to give you a short honk to express my displeasure with your poor driving and let it go and move on, but you Sir felt the need to escalate the non-issue. So I felt the need to write this and share it to your department. As I understand it Sir, your department does have the right to issue traffic tickets. Please issue two to yourself for two counts of failure to signal (or however it would be specifically worded)
Carmen went to prison, with her son. Again, Jason Rocks arrested his friends. That is probably the foreign answer.
Jason Rocks returns the wild animals to the Humane Society. Then, the transaction has an IP address. You have all the resources. We cannot call someone to tell you the facts, though.
There is no clue to Jason Rocks because he did not talk about buying things, with me, at the karaoke session. But, if you found the credit card, you could introduce yourself. When you are working the register, you could put the credit card, in your shoe. You can trace the last transaction. You would fingerprint them. Why? They are dealing with cash and the public. When the UWM police station, it would have been 1984. I took the bowling class, which is next to the Gashaus. Jason must like German beers. Maybe, he bought imported beers.
I only know Ryan, at the JB's On 41, in Milwaukee, WI. Ryan sings, with everyone. It is slippery, when you go to your car. I do not stay out late. If Jason Rocks bought a bowling ball, you would have a different receipt. We are not questioning him. There was no bad boy, in the storyline.
I am not connected to a college. I already know that the employees of JB's On 41 stoled his credit card. Jason Rocks never picked up the credit card, after his shift. You must have the full 15-digits to make purchases. I was wondering who's computer the transaction was done on. He owns a cat. I have a computer at home. You hit blue for one ticket. I was thinking that they stoled his cell phone. But, people are very brave.
I am not richer, today, because the banker did not give the touring loan to the bandsman. There were open issues, at the concert, that they spoke about. I did not finish booking the band, yet. The investor did Will Calls to get his attention, during a karaoke session. Maybe, we cannot go back to JB's On 41 because you arrest someone. I never understand the word "facts". I just have bad days. Your department never forgets a face. I knew that I needed more friends.
