Milwaukee, a city in the grip of violence
Arnitta Holliman, director of the Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention, who asked the community for help in finding out what happened in this house, said she is tired of these events in this Wisconsin city, which has suffered an increase in murders and violent acts in the last two years.
“The community is tired,” Holliman said. “We are tired of seeing people’s lives snuffed out too soon in preventable situations. The gun violence we are seeing is preventable and we cannot continue on the trajectory we have seen over the past two years.”
