    Good/Maybe Bad: Maintenance man shoots two in Milwaukee

    Long story short - 3 people in an apartment building confronted a maintenance man while he was on the job. The situation escalated to a point where 2 were holding the maintenance man down, beating him with a baseball bat, and he managed to pull his gun and killed two. Supposedly, there is video evidence and eyewitnesses to the incident so the police should be able to determine what happened quickly.

    My hope is that the maintenance man didn't do anything to start the physical violence. If that is true, then we have a great example of a DGU. If he contributed to the physical escalation, the it is an example of what not to do. Watch this case.

    If it was a good shoot, we probably will hear little, if anything else about it. If not, we will hear quite a bit more about it.

    Your 100% correct, if the guy did something to promote the argument the news will be all over it saying it's just another example of some crazy guy with a gun.

    Living in Wisconsin has been a hotbed of stories lately. Attempted recall of Governor Scott Walker, the outspoken Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (who I think is great), and now this shooting. Battle lines will be drawn again. I hope people wait to hear the facts before they react to the story. But, my guess is that some groups will rally their bases and make it a huge natiional story (again).

    Stupid people. They have a generic picture of a spray painted Glock as their story pic. Look at the big bad gun.... Scary.

    Not a good area. Pretty much in the area people around here refer to as the core.

    Glad he was able to defend himself and I hope he escapes prosecution.

    The fact that the shooter is in jail is not a certain indication of guilt. Zimmerman's arrest was purely political. I will need to hear a lot more to blame a guy who didn't shoot till he was being beaten by a baseball bat. Who were the witnesses besides the 3rd assailant? Their family and friends? Lot of questions still out there. What are the politics of those behind the arrest?

    Keep an open mind here (although as I say that I must admit I am not neutral at this point).

    Not sure what really happened but I do know that being arrested doesn't = guilty, bad shoot. Hope more comes out, like that supposed video of the incident.

    Madison and Milwaukee are not typical of Wisconsin, the Milwaukee DA is a jack wagon. Why is he still holding the man? granted we don't know all of the info yet.

    aside from the facts and outcome of this case, you gotta think there are big political battles in WI and Milwaukee especially after the milwaukee county sheriff ( i assume that jursidiction) has put out PSA's on the public getting training and arming themselves. I'm sure some libiots are drooling at an opportunity to shove that back into the sheriffs face.

    watch the libiot media get a hold of the TX case too, where a daughter lied about knowing a guy in her room in the middle of the night that the father ended up shooting after the guy didn't comply and was reaching for something.

    The meme is the national media will never pick up true justified shooting cases that saved lives, and will only highlight marginal or bad shooting cases. The low information reader will be brainwashed into thinking almost every case they see is "bad". It's called LYING BY OMISSION in my book. The media should be required to provide context and proportional reporting.

    It doesn't even necessarily mean a shot was fired. (Most criminals will change their minds right quick when the would-be victim draws a gun.)
