Are MKE County Judges Idiots??

In case you're wondering why one should NOT live in Milwaukee County, just read this news item from Channel 6.  It's damning

Prologue:  a drug dealer makes bail in a Washington County drug case, after already being out-on-bail in a Milwaukee County case.  TWO bonds, friends.

He continues his business in the City of Milwaukee.

Gunshots ensue.

Cops locate the bailed-out drug dealer who was shooting, demand that he drop the gun.  Drug dealer runs, turns, points the gun at the cops, who commence fire.

Bailed-out drug dealer/shooter goes to hospital, then to Milwaukee County court on charges:

  • Intentionally point firearm — law enforcement officer, etc., use of a dangerous weapon
  • Felony bail jumping — four counts
  • Possession of a firearm by a felon
  • Possession with intent to deliver controlled substance (cocaine), greater than five to 15 grams, use of a dangerous weapon
  • Possession of narcotic drugs

 Barnes made his initial appearance in court on Saturday, Aug. 17. Probable cause was found for further proceedings, and a preliminary hearing was set for Aug. 27. Cash bond was set at $50,000.

Question:  What's the difference between idiots and Milwaukee County judges?
