La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:07 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska)

Spent the majority of the show discussing the multiple controversies dealing with the parole of Terrance Shaw, who was convicted of sexual assault and murder of an Onalaska woman in the 1980s.

After that we talked about the vagueness of political ads on “crime” in Wisconsin and some of the specifics Gruenke thinks the state could do to actually help fight crime.

Began the show talking about the idea of traffic cams.

    I am the niece of Susan Erickson. I am sickened by the fact that Terrance Shaw was let out of prison. He has caused our family a pain that we will never get over. He made the choice to take a beautiful life. I dont believe one second one bit of his rehab. Our families were never notified of his parole. My dad, her brother lives in WI and her other brother lives in OH. He sister also lves in WI. Havent moved since the murder!!! Of course we would have been against his release! I would be terrified if I lived in Onalaska or La Crosse. .
