Statement on reckless and potentially deadly incidents at Marshall Campus
From Alderman Cavalier Johnson August 19, 2021
On Tuesday (August 17) just as classes were letting out at Marshall High School in the 2nd Aldermanic District (N. 64th and W. Hope), two reckless drivers decided to drive onto the school’s grass and sidewalk areas, causing terrified students to scramble for safety.
Students could have been critically hurt or killed, and for what? A silly display for a few seconds in a car.
As a community we need to have grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, siblings – and especially parents – discuss with their younger kin the dangers of this sort of behavior behind the wheel. We’ve had four homicides by reckless drivers in the past two weeks, and those incidents were as preventable as they were horrific.
What took place at Marshall on Tuesday could have had a similar deadly result, and simply put, that would have been a new homicide case for Milwaukee Police.
