Fixing Milwaukee Notes: You know you city has a gap when the Guardian Angles start showing up.


The Guardian Angels, a national citizen volunteer crime-fighting organization, will begin patrolling two Milwaukee County Transit System bus routes today, a member of the Milwaukee chapter of the organization said Thursday.

Willie Brooks, the spokesman for the Milwaukee chapter, said the patrols are in response to two incidents Monday in which a bus driver and a passenger were assaulted.


Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. has been calling on transit company officials to install the safety shields and has offered pepper spray training.

I think the GA are contra-indicators. They only show up when things are getting bad and people start to look for alternatives – domestic militias – for security. I didn’t even realize there were any in Milwaukee any longer.
