The high crime rates in Milwaukee, WI. are directly related to: the public school system poor student outcomes, lack of local job creations, the employed earning low hourly wages, an abundance of poor housing availability (old rental homes), and inner city residents high poverty rates.

I assert the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County elected politicians the past 53 years have opt only to maintenance the impact of American racism instead of eliminating it at its source.

Also, the said above social and cultural ills are covertly impact by Federal, State, and Local over funding "tax payer dollars," to various (100s) non-profit orgs that only exploit humanity conditions of poverty, ill health, and hyper criminal activity that occurs locally, like wise nationally.
