Laura Lau Should Run in Milwaukee County

It appears that Laura Lau is a loosey-goosey kinda court commissioner.  That's all well and good with the five Waukesha County Dallet-Wannabees (Ramirez, Foster, Domina, Kieffer, and Mawdsley), but not so fine at this little blogspot.

How loosey-goosey IS she?

Glad you asked!!

...In 2017, Frank Schiller was arrested and homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle, four counts of OWI causing injury and four counts of bail jumping. The victim, Peter Enns, was a “good Samaritan” and was changing a tire for someone else at the side of the road when Schiller’s car struck.
As Lau set the bail at $1 million for Schiller, she was quoted in the media lamenting how he was released on a signature bond while awaiting trial for a fifth OWI in Milwaukee instead of in jail where he could do no harm.

"Well", you say, "a million-dollar bail is pretty stiff.  What's the matter with that??"

Read on, McDuff.....

...However, Lau herself was the court commissioner in two other cases involving Schiller. In 2006, Lau set bail at $1000 for Schiller when he was arrested for felony battery, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest even though by then he had already two OWI convictions, four cases of battery, two cases of drug possession, five violations of bail, two resisting arrest convictions, and one case of witness intimidation....

Maybe Ms Lau needs to learn how to use CCAP.  It's really not very difficult.

Or she could move to Milwaukee County, where "let them go" is inscribed above every courtroom door.
