Statement from Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson

On 21st and Wright incident

By - Jan 23rd, 2022 06:38 pm

“The murders discovered today on a residential block in the heart of our city are horrific.  First, I offer my condolences to the families and friends of the victims. Whatever the circumstances, we must share the grief of those who have lost loved ones.

“It is important not to feel numbed by the ongoing violence in our community.  A horrible crime has again occurred, and it is not a movie or a fictional account. These victims died in our city, in one of our neighborhoods.

“We remain steadfast in our efforts to reduce violence.  We will achieve that through strengthened and improved law enforcement, through community intervention, and through a renewed commitment to prevention.  Again, we can never accept murderous violence as routine, and we must together recommit ourselves to our shared responsibility to find solutions and make our city safer.”
