The shootings in Milwaukee never seem to stop.

    I would lower the rate at which crime stuff is posted. Yes, it is an unfortunate truth of living in a metropolitan area, but most violent crime involves people who have some sort of preexisting relationship; a random person is far more likely to get killed by a reckless driver than someone they don’t know. The reports often have almost zero information beyond the ages of the people involved and where the crime happened, so there isn’t much to be gleaned until weeks later when someone at a publication writes a substantial article about the particular case.

    This isn’t to say there isn’t an issue. Homicides are down since last year but still up since the pandemic. But there isn’t much to be gained from the tiny blurbs news outlets put out immediately after a shooting.
