A dis­agree­ment over a killing.

Broth­ers in Blue In March, when a Mil­wau­kee po­lice of­fi­cer killed him­self and his wife, MIKE CRIVELLO, pres­i­dent of the lo­cal po­lice union, posted a mes­sage of sym­pa­thy on Face­book that con­cluded, “The stress borne of the vo­ca­tion [of polic­ing] oc­ca­sion­ally is more than can be rea­soned,” and “some­times breaches the thresh­old of the abil­ity of an in­di­vid­ual.” An of­fi­cer un­happy with this logic replied, “I don’t feel sorry for my brother in blue … Be­ing a cop is stress­ful, but it’s [cow­ardly] to take your spouse with you and leave your child alone.”

Se­cond in Com­mand Didn’t North­west­ern Mu­tual want to eclipse the 601-foot U.S. Bank Cen­ter, with its new 550-foot sky­scraper on Wis­con­sin Av­enue? Not so much. Ac­cord­ing to Quiet Com­pany spokes­woman BETSY HOYLMAN, “Our Tower and Com­mons [pro­vide] the right amount of space to meet our needs.”

Bush League Mil­wau­kee Ald. MARK BORKOWSKI be­lieves we need a re­al­ity check. As a live mu­sic town, “We think that we’re ma­jor league,” he says, “but we’re ac­tu­ally only Triple-A.” An arena op­po­nent, Borkowski ar­gues the project will over­load Down­town by adding two po­ten­tial con­cert venues.
