MILWAUKEE — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he’s assigning two additional federal prosecutors to the Milwaukee office to focus on violent crime.

Sessions was at the U.S. Attorney’s office in Milwaukee Monday to make the announcement. Sessions said Milwaukee is not immune to rising violent crime. He cited sexual assaults increasing 21 percent in two years, assaults up nine percent and murders up 57 percent.

Milwaukee’s murder rate climbed higher than the national average between 2014 and 2016. In 2014 there were 14.3 murders for every 100,000 citizens and by 2016 that rate had risen to 25.9 murders for every 100,000 residents.

Sessions has been traveling to different cities to talk about violent crime. He’s scheduled to appear in Charlotte, NC on Tuesday.

    he said the drugs are the problem. does that mean the drug addicts themselves? because those crafty people can walk outside and run into another addict and acquire heroin just like that.

    but we’ve learned with legal cannabis we can do without violence, I bet, if the same was true of the other drugs, we could do away with much of the violence, police interactions, jails, prisons, and illegal monetary gains possibly used to arm/defend/hurt others whether on accident or on purpose

    oh that’s right Sessions doesn’t like us

    just like with medical cannabis patients with heroin addicts you’ve got the whole range of people from absolutely functional all the way to too high to function, and it’s not a downward spiral, it’s just always twirling

    people have a right to be critical of police, many of us are nonviolent and police are threatening us with our lives over some BS, make one false move and you are done. this isn’t a war zone. this is a city.

    the bad guys killed my uncle. the police kill too. I no longer live in this mess of a city, at least cannabis is legal in California and Sessions can’t stop us.
