Fitzgerald hits Barrett and Flynn on skyrocketing crime

Citing laws passed by the Republican controlled legislature, and signed by Gov. Scott Walker, Fitzgerald noted, “Even with targeted state dollars being funneled directly to Milwaukee, the city continues to see disturbing rates of violent crime far out of line with the rest of the state.” Fitzgerald pointed to funding heroin treatment programs, expanding the state’s Treatment and Diversion programs to target alcohol addiction, developing ‘swift and certain sanctions’ for parole and probation violations and increased protections for victims of domestic violence as specific cases where the state directly helped the city.
