"Coughing up ready to hit the ground running highly caffeinated capital as I think I'm on my third cup here, so we are ready to go. Let's dive in. I love this morale A story because it's I know I understand is probably gonna be chief again. But I love the idea that he could be. And who knows? Maybe that would happen. Maybe it won't It's a story of redemption of pushing back against knucklehead is, um, and people who think they know how to run police departments and elected officials who try to do too much I could go on and on FTC commissioners who have no idea what that job is, even about Dan interrupt me here. I don't think it's a morality play. I don't I don't know that that it ties together all of that. But I will say that it's interesting, uh, that he had some legal leverage. Uh, to to basically grind out a settlement that was very advantageous to him. Uh, you know, financial sense, but it appears this week and you know, I'm not in the negotiation. I have no insight, personal insight to this. But he almost seems like the dog who got the car that, uh, evidently the city was not putting the big dollar number that he wanted, and they're coming up on this July 3rd. Well, okay, take the job back, and it looks like he is Pushing away from the table and say, Well, I'm not going to go right back. Not not right now, and it's almost like he had this Trump card and it it appears to me from the outside that perhaps the city has called his bluff. And the thing about the trump card is you have to be willing to play it. And you know him pushing this decision to take the job back. They may have called his bluff, so just so I'm clear you don't think he would play that card. Take the job put put his uniform. It's probably in mothballs already in his attic, put the uniform on. It's not that long ago Trump back into the P A. C downtown. I don't know. I don't think that that was ever really in the cards, but the city may push him to do it. Alright. Let me hear your take. Yeah. I mean this. I think this is just taking on a ton of symbolism. I mean, Alfonso Morales was, um you know how he was treated by the political establishment here. All that occurred in the city last year with regard to crime with regard to Protests and riots and, um, you know, under his tenure, the tragic loss of officers. I mean, this is a guy who followed Ed Flynn, who was very public chief, and we kind of thought this guy would be a little bit more understated, little bit lower profile and I think You know, his profile has risen considerably, and then you set up This. Um you know this big clash with the political establishment here winning in court. It's seemingly and and the opportunity to come back. I tend to agree. I think this does result in some type of type of settlement. Um, but I I start to wonder What is Alphonse, Um, arouses next chapter. Does he want to run for office? Does he want to do something with this kind of credibility fame among a certain group of people kind of in this state and in this region to be fair to chief Morales, he was thrust into the spotlight because of a couple of things wanting a death deaths of officers in the line of duty that had happened in like 20 some years. We had George Floyd happen right at the end of his tenure that that certainly changed the community and police dynamic. So you you can't be a bystander as a police chief when those things are going on, So I think that's part of that equation. Look again, he will decide and the city will decide at some point what? How this is going to play out. I think there's a message here, though. I think we're missing the point of the big message. There's a way things should work. There's a way that the F P C should be set up, design and run And there's a way that elected officials should interact with that body. And that has been a total train wreck in total mess for too long in this city, it has to be fixed. Absolutely that the fire Police Commission was for almost a decade just nonfunctional And this was the result. You had a lot of angry voices wanting somebody to walk the plank. For basically policing and Morales wasn't willing to, uh, throw the vocation of policing under the bus last summer, and people got mad at him because it wasn't the vogue. Politically correct sentiment at that time, and so they threw him out and threw him out without due process. They didn't have a plan for a successor. We still don't have an actual chief. We're on what our second acting chief who's applying for different jobs, by the way, and so it's just a mess. I mean, part of this is the set up of Fire Police Commission. I think we need to go to a stronger mayoral system. Where the mayor is actually making these calls and making the calls to to fire someone, and it's not outsourced Essentially to this commission. I asked Mayor Bear about that very point and no surprise. He said. Yeah, I'd love to have more power in that situation. I don't know that that's necessarily a bad idea. Given what I've seen with the, uh, the other way. This works with the F B C having a lot of ownership of this. Yeah, certainly certainly. Maybe inject a little bit more accountability into this. Um, I mean, the tragedy of all this is that you know this all occurring at a time where crime rates more low and policing was in his front and center. That might be a different story. But The tragedy is that you know we're living through what's going on, You know, 18 months, two years of a spike in homicides, huge spikes and reckless driving stolen cars. I mean, we've got to get policing right in this community. There's gotta be someone at the top, and there needs to be political buy in from kind of the political establishment and backing. Everyone kind of needs to be on the same team..

"Fix Potentially what ails us. But the job requires understanding what your specific roles and that goes for F. P. C. That goes for firing Police Commission for elected officials. I have seen an overreach of immeasurable put measurable proportions when it comes to elected officials in this community. Getting involved in the day to day operations of policing is not your job. It might satisfy that very small sliver of the pie of Community. The things ideas like less police officers defunding the police. Changing all the use of force policies based on nothing but a Idea rattling around in your empty head. Is somehow the answer. The answer is trusting good police officers. Chief Morales. I'll find some rows is a great police officer and was a great chief, one of the best we've had in a long time. Look, he may not come back to the job. He may not want to come back to the job. But, boy, I'm gonna hold out for July 12 because I would love to see it a poke in the eye to all the knuckleheads who think they know what policing is about Who think they know what makes this city run and what makes the city safe? They don't know. Their excuses. They're lame brain ideas has made us less safe. All under this idea that we're somehow going to be touchy feely and understand the plight of the community. Here's the bottom line. You break the law, there's consequences. You break the law, There's consequences. Whether you live in Milwaukee or Cedarburg or Mac, Juan or Franklin or Racine or Kenosha or Madison. If you break the law, there's consequences. Chief Morales understood that you should understand that. Until we get sick and tired of elected officials trying to be everything to everyone instead of just making tough decisions, which really is what leadership is about. Sometimes telling your constituents they're wrong. That's why I say leadership is hard. You're not doing the job rights. Wake up. Milwaukee. Wake up firing Police Commission. Wake up elected officials in this city. You've got an opportunity here. Presented to you by a judge Christopher Foley, presented to you by a former chief, who could be your chief again and lead this departments. Back to where it should be. As I said with the Bucks yesterday. Show me something. Do something or to use the term from Nike. Just do it. He should be the chief love to see that happened on July 12th what happened? Probably not. But I'm going to hold out hope that it does, and boy, if it does happen, we are going to be talking about it on July 12th back after this. Stick around more. The Steve Smith ET show. Next on WTMJ ready to get back to normal. Would you predict normal return to normalcy? Perhaps some semblance of normalcy will return. We may.

"PG 13. The initial ratings categories were g m R and X. The M category was eventually changed. The PG parental guidance suggested, and the PG 13 category was added to indicate film content with a higher level of intensity. On August 10th 1984 the action film Red Dawn became the first ever PG 13 movie to be released. 4 30 At the same time, the Marquis Fire and Police Commission meeting is at 4 30. Is it too coincidental or not? It is very coincidental. One of the three people on the list for Wall tells police chief is Jeffrey Norman, and he is currently the acting police chief for Milwaukee Police Department. Um The other two is James McGillis and the David cells are and again they're going to be deciding today at 4 30 on who the next chief will be. And I'll come out and say it. I mean, I think the odds on favorite is Jeffrey Norman, the current one. Yeah, the current acting chief. Now that raises a really interesting question is that proves to be true. And it's Norman and he goes to our Tosa. And if they settle with Morella's turning the Marquis chief, Yeah, and so we, but that's true because Not only do we lose the acting chief A B. They don't want the folks at city. All the politicians don't want Morales back and see who's running the place. Do they have any assistant or Deputy Jeeves in the marquee Police department knowing and we're told, nobody knows this is astonishing. At a time of historic crime increases. Nobody knows. We were told there is no assistant chiefs in the Mikey Police Force. Right now you have to go down to Inspector level and Some of those inspectors are retiring. Apparently, most people who are coming up for retirement now are running out the door and you have this guy point. Macauley, who is one of the two candidates when the when the Fire Police Commission deadlocked a couple months ago. He's an FBI agent is Marky ties they could circle back to him, but he is supported by BLM. That's BLM's charge. Just what more he needs him, right? Yeah. So? So it begs the question of why they're doing this to Chief Morales. Why they've done this from the start because it's not like they have a better option. So Former alder Bob Donovan and perhaps others, But Bob's name is on there, writes a letter recently. Um, where the police association writes a letter and Bob put those numbers in his statement that he wrote so far this year and tell me if I'm wrong, 2021 Crime up 45% in the city of Milwaukee. Homicides up from a record high last year. Rapes up 24% robberies up 21% theft is up. 42% and motors vehicle theft is up a whopping 100. And 94%, Jim. Those are you know if we were talking 568 10%. Yeah, we'd be going. Wow, Those numbers are really something and keep in mind That's coming off a historic year last year. Those were all historic numbers, record level homicide numbers, and we're now roughly at that same number as we were last year. It's appalling, and I want to paint another point of contrast to the numbers that you just read. So consider this. The Milwaukee County district attorney's office. John Chisel who skates all the time. We're all focusing on the police were all talking about morale is all the time. What about the D A. Well, it turns out that misdemeanor charges are down 33%. Felony charges are down 12% the D, a non prosecutes about 60% of felony charges, and and we have found serious gun cases, for example, that the police want criminal charges. The D A has refused to charge by the way those numbers are with an increase in arrests. Milwaukee Police Department walkie suburbs are actually arresting more people. But yet the percentage of those being charged as dropping at a time when crime is exploding and more so the idea is not doing his job like he's just refusing to prosecute what needs to be done. And here's another statistic, I think will shock some of your audience. The jail population in the city of Milwaukee is down 77%. Since 2015. This is a con. So what is that? Tell you? It tells you it tells me the people that should be in jail are not in jail and they're out there real fending. It tells me that you've got to walk D A Who's afraid of, you know, losing at the next election because BLM doesn't like him. And so he's aggressively not prosecuting cases that the police are bringing over there. Despite being decimated in numbers, the marquee please since suburban departments are bringing the referrals over those, as Jim noted, are up, which sounds like a misnomer aggressively, not prosecuting cases that sounds like But but that's kind of what it is. It's this kind of. Oh, these are smaller crimes so we can't use up jail cells. Oh, we don't have the staff all we don't have this. I mean, is it? I mean, at some point, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to see what's going on in the city of Milwaukee into our point earlier, Jim What happens in Milwaukee radiates into the burbs into the X herbs and into the surrounding counties. I mean, I hear this and both of you to do from prosecutors and sheriffs and was from the cow is surrounding us. This is not Helpful and and and, frankly, for a lot of folks should drive into, you know, let's put the pandemic aside for the we have a ton of people driving into the city every single day. So this really it threatens everyday folks in this community, but it threatens a lot of other people, too. That's right Outside the committee look at my nominee falls to get despite an increase is that we're having in Wauwatosa because the crime is spreading, so it does affect everyone. And that's why if you're you're living in walking shark Coney right now, thinking Well, this is Mark. It really doesn't affect me. It does affect you and it's something you need to be concerned about. And and, and quite honestly, I mean, what's going on, I think is we have a radical new generation of common council members and county board members, you know, and obviously a city attorney in the city, Milwaukee. These are not your father's alderman. So to speak, right exactly aren't the reasonable Democrats like Michael Murphy or whatever right right, folks that you might have had disagreements with them? But they also know That if Milwaukee is on fire, it affects everything. I mean, I expect this in Madison. Because People know statewide. There are a lot of crazy folks in Madison with a friend of mine refers to that Madison City Council is the is the Congress of nonprofit organizations because because there's just not a lot of people on their night, a lot of more wonderful, but a lot of them are just hard core liberal. I mean, I've seen and you would know better than I would But in the last how many years on the City Council and on the Milwaukee County board, you have people who have never run anything. They're politically driven there politically driven in a very left wing way, and you've got a million people here who are suffering. And their own Their own representatives aren't listening to him. Well, this is liberal Autopia, I guess, um, you know, having inert police force that's not prosecuting or, you know, not arresting people. Um, reform, the criminal justice systems. No one's in jail, or they're getting bailed out on signature bonds and the D A is not charging. This is a failed liberal experiments. And it's completely predictable that this would be the results. I'm I'm just a little surprised the degree of it, and that's happened so fast. Well, and it has happened fast. You could argue that, you know, do you fund the police in Milwaukee really began with morale. Asus firing And look what that's been less than a year and look what a disaster defund..

"firing police commission" Discussed on WTMJ 620

"This morning, his former Milwaukee police chief Alfonso Morales, will he be the city's top cop again? Come Saturday. The smart money is right now says probably his attorney. Seems to be even more certain. That would be Frank Gimble. Who joins us Live on Wtmj. Good morning, sir. Good morning, So to summarize it's been almost a year since the firing Police commission demoted Morale is the captain. After that group issued a series of objectives for the chief to meet Morella's chose to retire instead by a local and federal lawsuits against the city and the commission, the county judge ruled the demotion illegal gave the two sides 45 days to either craft a settlement or feeling that allow Morella's to take back his badge on Saturday. That's where we stand this morning, correct. That's a great summary there. Jean Actually, you've covered all in a couple of seconds outstanding. So you've talked obviously with the fire and police Commission and to no avail. What's the status? Are there more talks moving? Forward? ER, Is this where we are? Well, first and foremost, I did not talk to the firing Police commission. Uh, that was one of the issues that we raised the state case, uh, challenging the process by which they reached the decision to demote. Alfonso Morales from chief to captain. But I did speak to representatives of the city of Milwaukee. Uh, in an attempt to as the judge put it. Look and see if there was a financial alternative to our clients returning to the position of Cuba. Police and those talks did not. End in a financial settlement. And so as was outlined in the decision of Judge Foley, the 45 days the window of opportunity for a talks to bring about a financial settlement as an alternative. Who is returning to work ended up in, uh and no agreement. And so on Saturday morning, my client will return to the position of chief of Police of the city marquee. Break from what I understand The issue is not with the rank and file and the support of the rank and file officers. The issue is with the Fire and Police Commission. And and if the former chief comes back as chief, that acrimonious relationship is going to continue, is it not? Well, I hope that the fire and police Commission will respect that judge fully found that their behavior leading to the demotion of my client was. I think he called it disgusting. And I hope that they'll stay in their offices and not try to meddle in the return of Alfonso Morales to the position of chief. There's no question at all, but that the rank and file Police are very, very support him of my clients return to the position of chief. They had a great Kamerad ary during the period of time that he served as chief. And this is a time and Milwaukee's present when I think there needs to be a good relationship between the rank and file cops on the street and the person who's directing their activities in response to the needs of the community. To be safe. Attorney Frank Gimbal represents Alfonso Morales, who is set to become once again. Milwaukee's police chief, comes Saturday. If a settlement is not reached between now and then, does he really want this job back? Or would you just be happy to take a nice settlement and go peacefully away and do something else in law enforcement somewhere else? Well, you know, that's a decision that resides with him and not his lawyer. And from the get go when we went to court to set aside the Decision that was called flawed by the court. Judge Foley, Uh, he has sought to have undone the decision where he was demoted to captain. And so, um, he believes that he will have an opportunity now to demonstrate that not only was the decision flood legally But from the point of view of public safety, that it was a bad decision, and that the folks who live and work in Milwaukee will feel better about their safety. And about the tone of civility on the streets of the city so again to summarize the fire and Police Commission is supposed to discuss the situation. The Morales litigation at a meeting later today, nothing that you know of between EUR the Morelli's side in the city side set to happen in terms of negotiations talks Exchange of ideas. Dollar values nothing between now and Saturday, right? As far as I know, Jean. We are where we are and and that is that settlement talks did not result in a in an agreement and the Courts, Uh, end of the window of opportunity for that has arrived or it's nearly arrived. And so on Saturday, the 45th day after the judge issued his order. Um, he will return to the job of police Chief. That doesn't say that Something couldn't come out of the winds. But, uh, I'm not optimistic about that Attorney Frank gimbal. Joining us live on Wtmj. Thank you so much for your time, sir. Right on. Take care at 7 27 time Now for news about your money.

"Support of all of his officers, at least most of them And you know what, Even more importantly, he had the support of most of the community. But a few elected officials and some members of the fire Police commission didn't like him. So therefore he had to go. You know what else doesn't get talked about a lot. He's a member of the minority community. And yet, that wasn't good enough. Our search for a new police ship has become a laughing stock. Stops and starts. Candidates have moved on. Some have already gotten positions elsewhere. Some are under consideration for openings. I use this term last week, while Rome burns what is going on with this? And if you ask me today, the best thing that could happen the best thing that could happen. It doesn't get settled. At some point, the judge enforces the organ says You know what? Get back in there. Start doing your job that you're supposed to have. Maybe That's the kind of message that the Milwaukee Common Council, the Milwaukee fired Police Commission. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. Need to hear at some point what you did was not right. Maybe somebody needs to be held accountable for that. And you know what? Even if that doesn't happen, and it's very far fetched that he would ever walk back in there. Because of incompetence. Going to cost taxpayers. Those are those people that paid the taxes in the city, Milwaukee heck of a lot of money because they screwed up. Not good enough. The best chief we've had in a long time. But he wasn't the right flavors for some people. He was to confidence. Too strong with his opinions. Last time I checked, that's what leadership is about. July. 3rd is the magic date. Nothing would make me happier than see him Waltz back into that. That office and take charge. Maybe that's the message that needs to happen to city markets. They can wake up from their malaise. That's I think, resulting in people being killed and the streets of Milwaukee not being safe. We'll talk about another issue with policing. You've been a water street recently. These are work on water Street as a bartender. You've been down there. Not safe. Two things related. I think so. More of a Steve Harvey show. Next.

"Back in studio, you can catch us on Facebook live. We hope to continue that. Process going forward. Let's shift to some of the Milwaukee stuff. You're an attorney in Milwaukee. Milwaukee crime in general. I mean, you see this stuff every day up close and personal. I guess the big picture question is. Where are we? Yeah, We don't have a permanent police chief, or at least Uh, not an acting chief. We have a We have an acting shit. We don't have a real police. Chief. What? What do you make of all this? We as we see violence numbers going up, you see reckless driving become an issue unregistered vehicles. You see this stuff? You tell me where we at? Uh, crime is like the weather. I mean, crime is just the human condition. Well, we've always had it. I mean, you look in the Bible like those commandments. They're they're talking about crime, right? People breaking the rules for their own benefits or or joy just as the human condition But it seems to me In the last six months, things in the city of Milwaukee have gotten to another level of Truly shocking behavior. I I think a lot of the stems from, uh the switch to virtual schooling and the refusal to get kids in the school and the lack of supervision. And a lot of these kids in Milwaukee. We're just left to their own devices and started doing some pretty antisocial stuff. Um Which really disconcerting as a city of Milwaukee resident is what you said that the reckless driving for me is the number one to see it every day coming to work, leaving work. It's out there. And if I see that it's everywhere. Everywhere. If you drive in the city of Milwaukee, and you are stopped at a Red light. Um, you'll see people just blow through the red light because they're impatient. They think it's a video game. Uh, And it's scary because, you know, I think of this if you went down to Bradford Beach, okay, and you just had a pistol, nine millimeter pistol, and you just randomly shot somewhere on Bradford Beach. That that that bullet is lethal deadly. If it hits somebody, it will kill somebody. But it's only nine millimeters right is very small. You have a two ton vehicle going down Lincoln Memorial Drive and you decide to drive on the sidewalk, which happened three weeks ago. In the middle of the day. As Bradford Beak is just packed. Think of the people. You could just randomly kill for no reason, And it's kind of thrill seeking Of young people in the city of Milwaukee. And that's the type of thing that that really does hurt morale in the city quality of life. Makes people not want to live here. It gives us a bad name as an uncomfortable city, and I think we need more attention on it. Is this. A mayoral problem is that Mayor Tom Barrett, who has been on the show a million times, is it? He's not providing leadership when it comes to the police side of things or saying, Look, I mean, I was a big fan of chief Morales. I think he was doing a fine job and the fact that we now have Enter the situation where we can't hire somebody else. The process is messy. The fire Police commission is a joke, and in some ways we have elected officials delving deep sense of police policy now, and that's a lot of the post George Floyd. Impact. I'm not sure that we understand here in a city that's still in the top 50 as far as larger cities in the country. How do police ourselves And that to me is a big problem when I as much as anybody else promote this city? Yeah. Well, what was it 10 years ago, 12. Years ago, Tom Barrett embraced what's called broken windows policing and proactive policing. Which means you don't you don't do this hub in spoke where there's uh the police are in their squad cars and they're just responding to crime. What? Ed Flynn? Uh, frankly at the direction Tom Barrett did because he knew what Ed Flynn's whole worldview on policing was is get the cops into the street, You know, Don't be reactive. Be proactive. But there's been a political backlash against that. People don't like the idea of what's called Stop and frisk policing where the counts are trying proactively to find guns before they're shot. And and that type of thing. And and so in the last since Morales came around, they basically jettison that and they've They've gone back to. You know, there's a crisis. Send the cops there after the crisis, try to Investigate after the fact and you know it's not as effective but it is more politically feasible. Uh, in Milwaukee at this time that there's just a pull, push and a pull on this. You know, you can either let police police Or you pull them back, and I will tell you even though I'm a defense attorney. I have a lot of contacts in the police community here in southeastern Wisconsin and my cop friends are demoralized. They don't feel like they can. Be proactive because they don't want to be in a situation where they're not going to get packed up by the political leaders. If they have to go hands on with someone or if they got forbid, have to draw their weapon. And so it's a you know, this push and pull and and right now we've been pulled to the side of of over correcting. I think, uh, against police being proactive and I don't think the public we some do, but I don't think the majority public understands. How important this is to have a demoralized police department to having more difficulties recruiting new officers to just keeping the officers you have because we see mass retirements. I just talked to a sheriff. Yesterday, and he said, it's getting harder and harder to get people to come in. All of this is not a good trend, and then you mentioned some of the other ones on the other side. We have kids that are not artist school. We have kids that don't respect the laws, including traffic laws. A lot of time to get in trouble. That is not.

Gonna walk down to the Capitol. Because you'll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong. Police are squabbling with protesters. There we go. Protesters are inside the Capitol building testers have broken through into the first floor. Right now we can hear I have heard a couple of loud bangs as Capitol police moved in trying to secure the scene. There are multiple entrances to the capital to Scott that I know. Well, we're running down the hall leaning at get back into your offices.

"WTMJ. As we wind down the week. The news of the week is certainly not the slowing down and in the midst of all of these major national and frankly international story special when it comes to covert, which we'll get to his well during Some part of the show today. It's almost like an afterthought. Now that we're in a pandemic, and I just was reading online that I think for, like the second or third day in a row 4000 people this country died from a pandemic that Frankly, stop people running around in our state to think is the common flu. So we'll get to that at some point. But Mike, a local story that got a lot of attention a few months ago or a month ago and now is Ramping up again with no resolution in sight Tent that temporary feeling getting a bit more of a permanent one at Milwaukee Police headquarters. The Fire Police Commission choosing to last night, at least For the time being to halt the search for the next permanent police chief chairman of the Fire Police Commission. Nelson Sole heir cited ongoing legal issues with former chief Alfonzo Morale is who chose to retire from the department rather than take a demotion. Last summer until a formal opinion is issued by the city attorney on the process, or the morale is legal claim is result. These were cannot continue to rely on very well advice provided behind closed doors. As in politics. People's memories are short and loyalties are situational solar, basically saying they didn't want to offer the job to either finalists that being Malik Aziz or heightened Haley, then have to rescind it because it would become Nolan voided. Former chief more Alice decided T In fact, does when his old job back a judge in December than found the commission acted in the wrong when they decided to devote the former chief after he failed to meet a number of objectives. Morale is determined, though Frank Gamble told us he re wtmj. It's unlikely he would seek his old job back, but it doesn't mean it wouldn't 100% happen. In the meantime, Steve Geoffrey Norman, who was the acting chief will continue to serve In that capacity. Norman is someone who's been with the department for about a decade to decade. 2.5 decades. How about I say it like that? And has been backed by some members of the Common Council to take over full time. He did apply but wasn't one of the three finalists so it continues with the fire Police Commission. And if there's a musical response to this news, it's probably the theme from the old show on PBS, Benny Hill or the BBC. I should say it is just it's farcical. It's just It's nonsensical. The fact that we're We have such a difficult time just doing the right thing, putting a chief in place. Stop playing politics with this, which is the unfortunate part of all of this, and I made the point to the mayor, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. A few weeks ago, and I and I asked him Shouldn't the mayor should we just get to a point where the mayor just two points? The police chief and it's approved and maybe we need to get back to that, because in this interim There's no sign that the rising crime in Milwaukee slowing down matter fact is getting worse. Homicide rate last year exploded. Does anybody think there's a connection between the just the insanity of the Fire Police Commission, the lack of stability at the chief position and full disclosure? I was a big fan of chief morality, and I think he actually did provide some of that until it was messed with. Because of the politics. And all the big stories related to some of the incidents across this country having to do with race, although we had a minority Police chief. Some people forget that sometimes matter of fact represented the largest growing minority community in our area again discarded because there were some people that wanted a Black police chief. It seems like that's where we'll go, but good luck to that person. Because Whatever you install as a chief, whoever you install, you still have the crumbling infrastructure below it and the political games playing that always blows the process up. And they should be embarrassed the Fire Police Commission. And as much as I know that there's peril associated with allowing a mayor or leader to have that much power. Could it be worse? I'm not sure that's the case, and it's destructive. What we've seen happening in the Hierarchy of trying to pick a police chief, and to the men who and women if there were anything applied. Who have applied for this position. You still want the job, given the mess they've made of it, given the back and forth and nonsense, and it shows you when the Temperature in the room and the temperature of the country in flames. Decision makers leaders to the point where they can't be clearheaded and make salad smarts. Decisions. You get what you get. Now we have people waiting to see if they're going to be police chief of the police of Milwaukee. We have residents waiting for somebody to make a decision and at the end of the day were less safe. None of that is a good situation. And and Mike is, as we flip to flip the switch on another story. It is just it's frustrating. A lot of ways. I think the people in Milwaukee deserve better. Um, what else we got out there? We got a groundbreaking higher if you want to get into a feel good story. Bianca Smith. Um she Woz or is currently with Carroll University here in Milwaukee, but soon will be headed to Florida. You work with the Boston Red Sox organization. Smith broke some barriers earlier this week, becoming the first African American woman to be a coach in pro baseball. She met with the media yesterday, their personalities and that's how we'll actually be able to approach them as a coach, so getting to know them. That is going to be the first hurdle. I can't just jump in and start giving them instruction. When I have no idea what kind of person I'm working with, she told the assembled reporters yesterday. The moment was serenely accepted the offer. I really just wanted to coach. I didn't really think. About how big this was. For me. It was just I had a coaching job where I get to just focus on coaching like that was awesome, athletic director at Carol My Shoelace told Double D TMJ. He knew big things were in the forecast for her since the first day I met Biak. I could tell she was unique in a in a in a very good way. She had her priorities lined up her last day. Carol will be on February 19th, which is another ground breaking in a moment that Ah University of Wisconsin can kind of hang their hat on, which is pretty cool. That's a very cool story..
