THE MILWAUKEE 5 ON TRIAL

By

Michelle Malkin

  ·   January 09, 2006 06:22 PM

If these dudes were Republicans, their faces would have been all over the news today as their trial on felony counts of vandalism in the Election Day 2004 tire-slashing of more than 20 vehicles rented by Republican campaigners finally got underway:

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that at least:

Cable network Court TV is covering the trial, which, with five defendants being tried together, is expected to last two weeks. The witness list includes national AFL-CIO President John J. Sweeney and U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), as well as 77 others, including political operatives from both major parties, FBI agents, Milwaukee police officers and a representative of a Firestone tire center.

Not all of them are certain to be called into Circuit Judge Michael B. Brennan's courtroom. A spokesman for Jackson's office said Friday that the office had not received a subpoena or other official notification that Jackson, who was in Milwaukee for Election Day 2004 and may have spoken with some parties involved in the case, would be required to testify.

Given that the Democrat prosecutor has been accused of partisan foot-dragging, that inaction is not surprising.

Question: Where are all the hysterical bemoaners of voter fraud and voter suppression now?

Ever wonder why you see more liberal political bumper stickers than conservative? It's because all the thugs and vandals are on the Democrats side.

The MSM doesn't lean to the left, just ask them, they'll tell you.

Milwaukee is typical of any city in this country shackled by the promise of free liberal leftist democrat handouts. The sooner folks in our inner cities wake up from the democratic party BIG LIE the better off they and their children will be. Unfortunately many are so far down the road of dependency on liberal leftist democrat socialism it may take them generations to break the chains of economic slavery.

The liberal leftist democrat thugs in this story want to maintain their grip on the inner cities at all costs. Their actions prove that.

Thanks! As usual, even what she writes on her website is better than most fare in the MSM's versions of "online news".

That has a lot of truth to it. While living in south Denver I ordered some Loretta Lynn Gospel Music (I'm not super religious, but I like her singing), it arrived in the mail box crushed into a banana shape and forced into a corner (discs destroyed). In the same apartment complex I walked past a car with Republican bumper stickers which had both side windows shattered.

And we all remember the shots fired into a Republican campaign office during the last presidential campaign. And I've heard loads of stories of Republican yard signs being pulled up in California.

With their voter fraud and vandalism and outright lies, the left really hangs on in desperation. We must keep pressuring them until they go under (and have to live in a free democracy!!!)

What's really interesting is that Milwaukee came in 5th in the 2006 most fit cities in the U.S. according to Men's Fitness mag.

Ahhhh yes, Milwaukee. The city that gave us "Urban psychosis". http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4196/is_20001114/ai_n10642769

In a nutshell it boiled down to this - One girl shot and killed another girl because she refused to hand over her leather coat. When the perp went to trial her lawyer successfully used the defense of "Urban Psychosis" - that is because her client was a "have not" who had to endure constantly being surround by "the haves" it altered her mental state so that when the girl refused to give up her coat she was in a momentary state of insanity and shot her to death.

In other words the court at that time reinforced the idea that the only bad people in this country were the ones who worked hard for what they have and if they are killed when they refuse to share what they worked for with others who do not have any wealth (for whatever reason) then too bad.

"The liberal leftist democrat thugs in this story want to maintain their grip on the inner cities at all costs. Their actions prove that."

I live in Florida, Bradenton/Sarasota area, and when I see letters to the editor claiming that the Democrats have improved civil rights by doing x, y or z over the past 60 years, I write in with the correct history. Surprisingly, the paper prints a lot of my letters even though the papers are very liberal fish wrappers here.

Everyone's right that if the slasher 5 were a right-wing group, this trial would get all sorts of national commentary. Similarly, imagine what the MSM would do if a right-wing group interrupted physically a left-wing anti-Alito press conference? This is precisely what happened to a pro-Alito press conference, interrupted by left-loonies, and barely a blip on the MSM screen. Left-loonies can do whatever they like. It is a small miracle that the slasher 5 are on trial at all, anywhere.

No, it's because conservatives tend to buy their own vehicles with their own money, and therefore don't care to turn them into rolling billboards.

Knowing they will lose even more power, rats reek of fear and do insane stuff like this. Does anyone on the ground have any idea of what will happen in this case?

My guess is a whole lotta nothing. We're known here for criminals receiving very nasty slaps on the wrist. ( if the D.A. is feeling particularly mean, that is)

This was freedom of expression.
They have a constitutional right to slash tires if it's a political statement and not a homophobic act.

In this case there are no witnesses. The only testimony will come from people who heard them brag about what they did. My prediction: no convictions. Remember, this trial is taking place in Milwaukee.

Its the Democrat's culture of tire slashing again.

Since this is a "Civil Rights Violation" if it is not prosecuted in Milwaukeeby the Dems, it can be prosecuted by the Feds at any time in the future.
If the penalty is a slap on the wrist, it might make a good vehicle for a federal prosecutor to make a name for attention as a canidate.

I live in a Milwaukee suburb and I find it hilarious that Milwaukee should be listed as 5th in the nation as far as fitness. Through the years, I've read other stats that said Wisconsin are one of the top states in fatness. All that beer, cheese, bratwursts, etc.

However, what we are fifth in the country on is: taxes. I believe there are three or four states that are ahead of us as to the amount of taxes we pay. This, of course, is due to the superminds in Milwaukee and Madison who believe that all taxes are wonderful. It is also listed as one of the most unfavorable places for retirees to live.

I live in a Milwaukee suburb and The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel will print three letters in favor of the liberal agenda to one letter in favor of a conservative point-of-view in its "letters to the editors." I might add that this is the only newspaper in Milwaukee. After the 2004 presidential election, I cancelled my subscription.
