War on Drugs an aside

war-on-drugs

First let me clear in no way shape matter or form, should this be taken as an attack on law enforcement, who in a day to day bases deals with horrific events dealing with the world of drug abuse.

In my family for generations drug addiction has caused great pain, be it my being an alcoholic to other family members having issues with Pills to Heroin.

Living in Racine I see the effects of drugs in my area from crime to kids not  having a dad/mom in the home anymore.

We know too is we spend a hell of a lot of money on this war

a quote   “The U.S. federal government spent over $15 billion dollars in 2010 on the War on Drugs, at a rate of about $500 per second. State and local governments spent at least another 25 billion dollars” . Source: Jeffrey A. Miron & Kathrine Waldock: “The Budgetary Impact of Drug Prohibition,” 2010.

The above number has only grown.

That only in the USA: In Mexico over 160,000 have died. That is a high number, now at on time the killing in Mexico was going down, but that number is going back up. this year.

Here in the States issues from asset forfeiture to area “wire taps” have many questioning if the public is losing rights in this never ending war.

How much of the War on Drugs is simply a away to continue to fund the security state

All for what? Yankees have a huge craving for drugs, now with Cannabis becoming legal in more and more States at least Pot is no longer the driving force for the wars vs say Meth if that a benefit

Still this country needs to have a discussion on drugs a long and deep one and to have that now.

Sadly if we did the right folks would lose a great deal of money.

 

Book Review You Gotta Be Dirty by Micheal Groan

Our first review is the book You Gotta Be Dirty by Micheal Groan

Published 2016 by Badger Wordsmith, LLC Marinette, WI

190 pp with index.

I received this book late last week and at once I began to read it.

Grabbed my attention right off and found it hard to put down, very fascinating  story of the Outlaws MC in the State of Wisconsin and near by areas focusing in and around the city of Milwaukee.

Mr. Grogan carefully lays out not only the History of the Outlaws MC, but how other events of the time impacted not only events that the Club dealt but the politcal environment  within the City of Milwaukee Leadership and the Milwaukee Police Department.

Case in point as I knew growing up in Madison of the American Indian Movement with events leading up to the murders of FBI Agents Ron Williams, Jack Coler. and how the Outlaws MC may have been connected with the killings.

I knew growing up during the time written of in this book, I had read newspaper stories, can recall TV news reports, however I had no idea how wide range of criminal acts members of the Outlaws were engaged in nor the wide range of crimes involved.

The book does end with how the Outlaws MC was brought to justice and the fate of many with in the court system.

Mr. Grogan, also is clear in saying that groups like the Outlaws still exist and even the Outlaws MS may rise again, but for now…

This reader found this book well written, a joy to read.

The author goes into detail on use of FOIA, with some of the issues in researching this book.

The research was very well done with use of end notes, so the reader may themselves do their own research on this subject plus have an understanding of the hard work Mr. Grogan did in writing this book.

There is an Index to proper names

This book be a great book to get if you are interested in Cycle gangs make a great gift for someone who is as well.

This book is available on Amazon.

Podcast and Reviews!

Had a request to do a Podcast, and I love love them. Not trying to compete with any of the ones in existence, so many great ones now, in no shape matter or form am I aiming to do that.

What ours will do is more on the lines of interviewing Authors, Film Makers, Stars of Books/Comics/Film Makers/Hosts etc of the media on the Mob, to help in (if only my) gaining knowage on this subject.

Will also cover the History of Southeastern Wisconsin as it applies to this subject.

Of course I will have to go to the many fine Italian Restaurants in South Eastern Wisconsin and Northern IL and report back to you!

What I do not do for the Members of The Milwaukee Mob!

Just sent me a copy of your Book, Film, or let me know you like to be on the air and we will make that happen.

The platform used will be Blog Talk Radio with the low cost 30 min show, an easy show to do but with no bells or fancy stuff.

If the Podcast takes off or sponsorship come in we would expand the show to a new platform that would allow more cool tools to be added.

Know too I will be reviewing Books/Films as asked on the Facebook Live I do for The Milwaukee Mob

There will be no charge to be on the Podcast or to be  reviewed on Facebook Live

A donation be great BUT NOT NECESSARY! Your sending me a copy of a Book, Film etc is a way a donation, but feel free to do so.

Email is themilwaukeemob@gmail.com

Yes, I was a mob dr. in a film!

Why yes I was in a film called Petty Cash filmed in Milwaukee directed written by Milwaukee native Ross Bigly this was filled in and around Milwaukee. in 2010.

I played Dr Dan one of the few who lived at the end of the film, I would go on to play Dr Dan in another film The Bad Girl

This film to date has played on Amazon Prime at one time and my understanding is still looking for a further distribution deal.

The Film/Media world with its long time connections with the Mob from as far back as the 30’s and perhaps even today.

Here is the trailer from this great film!

 

The Milwaukee Mob

The Milwaukee Mob is my effort to look at the history of the Mob, in the city of Milwaukee and S.E. Wisconsin  from about 1900 to 1975 (or about), be doing so using Film, Podcasting, and history based interactions with reactors. (I.E. theme parties)

I will also look how the actions of the Mob in Milwaukee are still playing out today, with examples from the effort to bring a casino to Kenosha when Jim Doyle was Governor of Wisconsin

Will be using public records, interviews with those involved, news accounts.

As we will be taking/using photos of historical and if needed take them from public sidewalks but in NO WAY will we do any stick a camera in the face of someone or trespass, our aim is to be respectful at all times.

We hope to post content one a week, if not more often. We will be adding a lot in the next few days.

Thank You
