Thug Training Ground? -Sherman Park Milwaukee

Unsupervised children of all ages, allowed to run wild and stage fights in Sherman Park. Attention seeking females, being encouraged by the young men to fight, while they video it. Taser fights. Drug dealers and gang members. Local businesses vandalized and homes burglarized. Assault, theft and shootings. The area has a history of riots going back to the 1960’s.

With the addition of black lives matter protesters, the Milwaukee riots seem to have been an escalation of normal daily events. For the residents in the Sherman Park area, the leap from teen street fighter to rioter, was a small baby step. Is it time for some responsible adult supervision in Sherman Park? Is it time to turn Sherman Park into something more productive, than a thug training ground?
