Possible, but not at all automatic
In Milwaukee County, juveniles arrested for car theft "get sent immediately home, because under the point system in juvenile court" on holding suspects, "a stolen car gets zero points."
An apples and oranges mix
Milwaukee "incarcerates 1.2% of white men" and has "incarcerated over 50% of black men in their 30s."
A split decision
David A. Clarke Jr.
Says Milwaukee blacks have 55 percent male unemployment, 60 percent truancy, a 50 percent graduation rate, the "worst" reading scores and "lead" in infant mortality.
Number’s on target, but other factors are also involved in declining tax base
"Eleven years ago, the city of Detroit lifted the residency requirement for police officers and today, 53 percent of officers live outside of the city. If we want the tax base of Milwaukee to resemble the tax base of Detroit, this is the way to go."
