Watch out if you live in Milwaukee and possess a gun. You may find your life in peril.
Mayor Tom Barrett has announced an anonymous hotline that encourages residents to call and snitch on their neighbors. Never mind that the law says you have a right to know your accuser, this is just plain dangerous.
The idea comes on the heels of more than 200 shootings in the city so far this year and aims to curb the illegal possession of guns. So now gangbangers and troublemaking neighbors can get the police to work for them.
Have a beef with the rival gang? Call in the police and a swat team will roll up on their turf. Got a problem with your neighbor’s late night barking dog or the yard sign that supports the Tea Party, then call in a nasty tip and count the seconds until they are converged upon by police.
Come on Milwaukee. Its not the guns that are the problem. Its the demographics!
