Honestly all the senseless crime has 2 stop. Its ridiculous. I mean society would be 10 x's better if people would put more effort into doing something positive vs negitive.

This is so sad. Another decent young person killed senselessly. This has got to stop, but it won't until the attitudes of the communities where so much of this happens changes.
EACH FAMILY HAS TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT THIER MEMBERS ARE DOING AND ENGAGED IN.
So many of these families that lose loved ones mourn thier own lost, but know that thier own kids etc., are doing the same thing. They can't say they cannot tell when thier youth is involved in the same type of activities. THEY have to stop it.
The Black communities need to organize and police thier own families and neighbors as much as possible, and that starts at home.
Stop blaming the police for what's wrong on the North side.Start reporting these people engaged in this activity.
How can they expect the police to help when there is a crime and they cannot get any information from anyone.If there are 50 people witnessing a crime, you can bet there are 50 people who saw nothing, heard nothing,and will speak nothing.

Senseless Crime?

The police are calling this an armed robbery but I'm not so sure. Did the "robbers" even take any money? Dividing the take six ways doesn't amount to much.

Also, checking Milwaukee County Court records reveals there is Case # 2002CF006670 from 2002 against one Lloyd Jackson with a birthday indicating he'd be 28 this year - outcome was a guilty plea on felony delivery of cocaine - this is cross referenced with two related drug dealing cases involving other parties (gang members).

If this is the same Lloyd Jackson, how can we be so sure this was just a "garden variety" store robbery vs. some sort of gang enforcement action? And why is the sister calling for "No Retaliation" if this isn't gang related? Wake up to what is really going on here people. The gangs are trying to run this neighborhood and the police are playing dumb.

The guys who did this is gay because they neEd mask to cover up the cowardness in them. Six guys who probably had to geek each other up. They shot this man cause what? Wake up milwaukee especially my black people.
