Milwaukee Journal Sentinel…strike two.

October 31st, 2006

The second installment in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel‘s “I Hate Mark Green” Series of editorials, best viagra cure tells us nothing about Mark Green…and a great deal about the Journal Sentinel.

First:

It’s almost laughable how the paper tries to give Doyle credit for being tough on crime:

Our review of the record suggests that Doyle is both tougher and smarter than Green

But does everything they can not to hold him accountable for the crazy crime wave that has been occuring (especially in Milwaukee) under his watch:

Though it wasn’t as steep as here, sildenafil buy an uptick took place throughout the nation in 2005 – suggesting the causes may transcend state borders.

In other words, look because crime is some sort of natural phenomena that ebbs and flows everywhere, we certainly can’t expect Jim Doyle to do anything about it.

They go on to say:

In his first budget, Doyle took a bite out of revenue sharing, hurting efforts by cities to hire cops. But facing a huge deficit, he had little choice.

(Of course, he had a choice, he could have greased his buddies in WEAC a little less, for example.)

Second:

“Guns” is not another way to spell “crime.”

Saying that Mark Green is “soft” on crime because he doesn’t believe in the same draconian anti-citizen gun control measures that Jim Doyle does is illogical at best and disingenous at worst.

There is literally no correlation between the number of guns in an area and the amount of crime in that area.

None.

Zero.

The only correlation is between the number of PEOPLE who are willing to commit crimes and the number of crimes committed…with or without guns.

Remember, the Journal Sentinel bases their conclusion that Jim Doyle is better than Mark Green on crime on just one thing: Mark Green believes law-abiding citizens have a right to protect themselves and Jim Doyle doesn’t.

In the paper’s view, Mark Green helping you achieve that right would make all of us less safe…a consequence that has NEVER happened in any state that added a concealed-carry law. (And 48 states in the country already have one.)

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s editorial ends with:

Wisconsin is safer with Doyle at the helm.

But it’s only safer for the criminals who never have to worry that their victims might possess the power to protect themselves.

    This type of nonsense is a good reason to carry around a “barf bag”.

    “There is literally no correlation between the number of guns in an area and the amount of crime in that area.”

    So, then, adding more guns won’t make it any safer. Correct? ;)

    What if those guns were on the hips of police officers? ;)
