Mini McGee Reaches Blockbuster Settlement with Wauwatosa

The next best thing to a hug.

Wauwatosa - A day before they were to go to trial, the city and Milwaukee Ald. Michael McGee today reached a plea agreement on the municipal charges stemming from a traffic stop outside a Wauwatosa video store late last year.

Under the terms of the agreement, McGee will plead no contest to a municipal charge of resisting and obstructing an officer, and pay the $103.50 forfeiture. In return, the city will drop a second municipal charge of disorderly conduct, City Attorney Alan Kesner said.

No word on whether Blockbuster will press charges for him renting DVDs under the name Michael McGee Junior when his name is really Michael Jackson. Or was that under the name Michael Jackson when his name is really Michael McGee?

Thank you Fraley for your usual insightful and thoughtful commentary regarding this elected official.

Its not that Fraley is picking on McGee nor is it that I care particularly about him at all.

Rather its about the mindless, childish, namecalling/belittling that (1) helps dumb down debate and (2) Fraley reserves for African Americans.

Yeah, he beats on others but it tends to be about the issues more or less.

Note that in his haste to blast the County Board in a previous post, Brian simply refers to "Holloway."
Natalie?

That's because that is all Hollway is worthy of. I'd prefer to call him "Thief"...but then it would be hard to know which elected official he was referring to.

Actually, didn't Holloway win that case, where he was called a thief?

I'm sure you would also say that the Milwaukee police officers accused of beating Frank Jude were quite obviously innocent. After all, they did "win" that case, didn't they?
