The photo shows a teen laying in the snow after he was beaten. Police said he tried stealing a car, but was stopped and attacked by a group of men.
“I saw the photo and I was really displeased by it. It made my stomach turn,” Tietyen-Mlengana said.
It happened near 33rd and Scott on Monday afternoon, February 8th.
Bob Donovan is the alderman of the district where the incident occurred. He is calling what happened “street justice.”
Car thefts are an epidemic in Milwaukee thanks, largely, to the inept and weak response from the mayor and the criminal justice system. Can you really blame people for taking it into their own hands when the system is failing them? Hopefully this kid has finally learned his lesson and will get his act together.
