Gov. Walker to sign within days.
It is clear in the priorities laid out by our governor there is no macro understanding of the underpinnings to a free economy. Furthermore, nothing in this budget appears ready to address either the eventuality of cuts in federal spending or the need to free our markets to prepare.
In the interim, our two-party dominated government will continue to farm out taxpayer funded advantages and favors serving the elected officials and the system first, and the people second. The governor’s priorities to direct the economy and construct towers of innovation are meddlesome, dangerous, and distort the real solutions a free market will create.

The Legislature “must make these three computers available in their entirety immediately” to the groups suing the state, the three judges wrote.
“The computers are extremely likely to contain relevant and responsive materials that should have been disclosed during pretrial discovery. Moreover, Plaintiffs have established that substantial numbers of documents were not disclosed, which satisfies the court that some form of ‘fraud, misrepresentation, or misconduct’ likely occurred,” the unanimous opinion said.
Three Milwaukee police officers involved in the arrest of Derek Williams, who died in July 2011 after gasping for air in the back of a squad car, intentionally failed to help him and should face misdemeanor charges, a jury concluded at an inquest Thursday.
For the first time in more than two decades, a Milwaukee County inquest jury in a police-custody death case heard two arguments Wednesday: One in favor of criminal charges and one against.
Both arguments – equally compelling – were made by special prosecutor John Franke after seven days of testimony in the case of Derek Williams, who died in police custody in July 2011.
Jurors are being asked to decide whether three officers should be charged with the misdemeanor crime of failure to render aid by a law enforcement officer in connection with Williams’ death. The officers are Richard Ticcioni, who put his knee on Williams’ back during the arrest; and Jeffrey Cline and Jason Bleichwehl, who each spent time in the front of the squad car while Williams gasped for air in the back.
An inquest jury Wednesday will be asked to decide whether a Milwaukee police officer who put a knee in Derek Williams’ back or two officers who sat in the front of a squad car while Williams struggled to breathe in the back should be charged with the misdemeanor offense of failing to render necessary aid to a person in custody.
