Death was on my doorstep last night.

July 17th, 2006

The two men killed downtown last night died less than 100 feet from where I’m sitting right now.

And, buy viagra site like several other violent incidents from the past few years, buy cialis the shootings occurred outside of what appears to have been an underground hip-hop club.

So, before Eugene Kane (resident black apologist/columnist at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) launches into his inevitable defense of hip-hop clubs, I want to ask what the hell is wrong with people who can’t go out dancing without shooting someone?

    From the story…

    “Josh Neureuther, the general manager of the Old German Beer Hall adjacent to Visions, said that he has repeatedly called police about closing-time problems at the club but that police have done nothing.”

    That would be the Old German Beer Hall from Drinking Right wouldn’t it?

    I think the sound of hammers striking nails from the Old German Beer Hall scared those guys in the hip hop club into thinking someone was already shooting at them! That’s why this happened! They just thought they were defending themselves!

    […] After reading Eugene Kane’s spot-on denuciation of the often violent (and sometimes deadly) behavior of many young, black, Milwaukee-area partiers, I have to apologize for assuming that he would come to the defense of their “right” to party. […]
