Check this out from the Journal Sentinel:
Two sanitation workers with the City of Milwaukee were robbed at gunpoint about 8 a.m. Saturday in an alley in the 3300 block of N. 37th St., according to police.The employees were in the alley when they were approached by the suspect demanding money. The city workers were unharmed, and the suspect fled on foot with cash, police said.
This has to be the most stupidest of all crimes. Excuse my french, but WHAT IN THE HELL MILWAUKEE?!!! Why are those who are just sanitation workers in getting robbed? Many are saying oh this happens everyday. Really though? I’ll bet that those looking at this story are probably thinking about not applying to be a sanitation worker. After seeing this unfold out of my home city. Also, if an incident like that can happen in Milwaukee, it can happen ANYWHERE! As far as a this on the job, same thing. No job is safe. I repeat: NO JOB is safe! Some of you reading this blog have been in a similar situation liked this. And for others who think that “that will not happen to me. ” Guess again. It could happen to you. I’m just saying! I mentioned about safety nets one time or another on this blog, and I’m asking again, where are the safety nets? So this means that the Sanitation Workers should be starting to pack weapons just for protection? Or having the Milwaukee Police Department to go to the routes where the Garbage Collectors go and keep watch?
Personally this story will probably not pass as of yet. And plus I hope that this incident should not reflect the image of Milwaukee.
