Milwaukee’s Black-on-Black Murder Epidemic

Michael Thompson, WND, August 10, 2013

Data compiled by the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission (MHRC) show that in 2012, 93 percent of the known murder suspects had criminal backgrounds. The data reveal most of the murder suspects and victims were black.

The MHRC, established in January of 2005, is central to the city’s violence prevention efforts. {snip}

In the city of 600,000, there were 91 murders in 2012. Seventy-five percent of known suspects were black, as were 80 percent of the victims.

Six percent of the homicide victims were white and five percent of known suspects were white.

Twelve percent of the victims were Hispanic and 19 percent of the known suspects were Hispanic.

The city of Milwaukee itself is 40 percent black, 17 percent Hispanic, and 37 percent white.

Of known 2011 homicide suspects in Milwaukee, 93 percent were black, 4 percent were white, and 4 percent were Hispanic.

In murders where the weapon was known, a handgun was used 100 percent of the time. Contrary to the myth of gang disputes being the cause behind high homicide rates, only one percent of 2012 homicides were gang related.

The MHRC also tracks nonfatal shootings, 508 of which occurred in Milwaukee in 2012.

The data reveal that 89 percent of the suspects in these nonfatal shootings are black, and 88 percent of the victims are also black; five percent of the victims are white, and two percent of suspects are also white; seven percent of the suspects are Hispanic, and six percent of the victims are Hispanic.


Milwaukee is among the 20 most violent cities in the country. By far, the largest number of homicides in Milwaukee occurred in one much-discussed zip code, 53206.

A University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee project says, “The 53206 zip code neighborhood serves as a bellwether for poverty changes in Milwaukee and nationally.”

The report also notes, “In the 1990s prior to welfare reform in Wisconsin it had the largest number of families receiving AFDC [Aid to Families with Dependent Children].”

In 2012, 16 of the 91 murders occurred in this zip code and 96 of the 508 nonfatal shootings happened here.

In 2011, 17 of the 86 homicides in Milwaukee occurred in 53206. Between 2005-2009, there were 95 homicides in this zip code out of 473 in the city as a whole. That’s 20 percent of all homicides, occurring in a Zip Code with less than 5 percent (28,210) of the city’s 594,833 population.

Blacks comprise 96 percent of the zip code, Latinos are 2.1 percent, and whites are 1.6 percent.

WND previously reported on that area in Milwaukee where half of the housing loans are for investors, 60 subprime lenders operate, and 90 percent of family income-tax filers are single parents.

That would be that zip code 53206, a key component of what’s been described as Milwaukee’s welfare magnet.

    Who cares? Blacks aren’t my kind. They can kill themselves all off, and the country would be better for it.

    • dukem1

      1.6% of the zip code is white.
      Hate to be a letter carrier around there.
      Eeeh gads! There’s probably more white in Nairobi.

    I’m from Milwaukee and I usually get jobs out of town. When i feel down I think I would like to go home again. And when I go home again, it takes about a week until i say “ick”.

      Let’s sing along:

      What’s made Milwaukee famous
      Has made a realist out of me….

    • Chris Granzow XI

      lol. So true. I grew up on the northwest side, and decided as young as age 12 that I’d leave when I got older and wouldn’t let my kids grow up in that cesspool of a city. The only area that’s even slightly decent is the eastside.

      • dulouz

        I’m a Southsider suburbanite, what goes on at Bay View High is a crime against humanity. Its the ugliest dumbest thing I’ve even seen. I went to Locust Street Fest and surprisingly same race marriage was the vast norm as was same race kids. The single moms with one black kid were definitely on the out. The third Ward is nice as compared to the dying Grand Ave. Yea, Northridge is a classic death by Black case.

    Like I said in another AR thread this evening, most black crime has nothing to do with gangs.

    Detroit, Baltimore, DC, Birmingham, and now Milwaukee–all drowning in a sea of blood. I don’t care about black’s spilling each other’s blood, but innocent whites are subject to crossfire and other collateral damage. Once Milwaukee must have been German because of the beer. Now it’s on its way to becoming another urban wasteland. Disgusting and sad.

      I think Milwaukee has the highest percentage of German-Americans than anywhere else in the country. Milwaukee’s been pretty sh*tty since the 90’s though, back then it was one of the ten most dangerous cities in the country. Since then, everybody with half a brain moved out to the surrounding counties. There used to be a mall (still standing) on the north edge of town called Northridge, that had so many “youths” going there stealing, robbing, and harassing people; that between the white people not wanting to shop there anymore, and black people stealing everything, had almost every single one of its stores go belly up and had to shut down the mall. Then, there’s the state fair incident and 4th of july incident like 2 years ago; crime is rampant pretty much everywhere. The only thing keeping it from being Detroit is that 54% non-black pop.

      My brother in law is 61 and originally from Milwaukee. All four of his grand parents were from Germany and settled there in the early 1900’s. His parents and grand parents have since passed away. He and all of his siblings have since abandoned the greater Milwaukee area because it has been destroyed by blacks and it continues to get worse. If the government has its way, there will no longer be any safe areas for Whites to go.

        I don’t see this as a bad thing. When White Flight is impossible, White Fight is inevitable .

    • Ngati Pakeha

      Talking of beer. A few of the more seasoned Amreners will remember Laverne & Shirley. A contemporary version of that show would aptly highlight the changes in Milwaukee. The same for Happy Days. Can anybody remember there being any blacks in that show?

  • John R

    What, here we go again! As I have noted on another post, this is really just about black violent behavior, period. Who cares about it being “black on black”? That is OFFENSIVE! It implies that it would be UNDERSTANDABLE, or even, perhaps JUSTIFIED if blacks targeted Whites for violent crime. And what about White criminals? Overwhelmingly they target OTHER WHITES, not blacks. Any story about “White on White” crime? Of course not. To even say that would imply that Whites SHOULD have some feeling of racial solidarity, which, sadly, we generally do not possess. The fact is, most crime is Intra-racial, not interracial. People commit violence against others that they know, and have some beef with. Whites usually avoid getting too close to blacks. (The smart ones, anyway) What I find surprising is that blacks so often cross the racial divide to commit crime. Why no stats on the interracial aspects of this study? That is what should concern most Americans, who are White, btw.

    My White privilege tells me to tolerate some epidemics.

  • Whitetrashgang

    Well its really white racism to blame, see black people mostly kill other black people because there is no white people around to kill, because most white people don’t live around pavement apes. Thank God Obama will change that with section 8 etc, then we can all have a travon martin on every street corner.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Every time I go outside the more black people I see the more I wonder why am I alive. I mean what is the point kind its of like being a rabbit or a mouse. I guess the government knows whats best, to bad Charles Manson would actually help to make make a better neighbourhood.

        • HJ11

          You’re alive to make more like yourself, i.e. to bring more White people into existence. That is the purpose of every White person.

          • saxonsun

            Scary talk. People decide for themselves what their purpose is. You have NO RIGHT to tell anyone what they should do.

          • HJ11

            I have EVERY RIGHT to express my beliefs. Others can accept what I write or not, as they choose.

            What’s scary is that you apparently are worked up because I believe that Whites should have more children.

          • HJ11

            Second reply: Nature screams out to every type of organism: Make more like yourself. This is the basic purpose of all life. One doesn’t have to be a full time observer of nature to see this. Just look in your backyard. The purpose of life is to make more life.

            Too many Whites seem to have forgotten this and have substituted artificial purposes in place of this basic purpose.

          • HJ11

            Some follow various religious beliefs that promise them some sort of heaven or paradise if they just live as the religion determines is right. This gives them meaning and purpose and keeps many from feelings of hopelessness and despair.

            Others, deny such thinking and say life has no meaning or purpose. There’s not much in such a belief to keep those in this group from just ending it all, or miscenating or being the last of their line.

            I follow a different way from both of the above. I say that the purpose and meaning of all life is to make more like itself and that the additional purpose and meaning for awakened White people is to will their own evolution ever higher while fulfilling the basic purpose of making more like themselves.

            This belief gives me comfort and a focus on the fact that whether I make a lot of money or no money or am successful in business or not, or if my life doesn’t go exactly as I would like, that these things aren’t really important in the long view of history. What is important is that I find a way to expand my line and at the same time live in a way that puts me on the path (no matter how slow it may be) toward the evolution of my line.

      ” see black people mostly kill other black people because there is no white people around to kill”

      You know, you could have stopped right there and still had a valid statement, hee hee…

  • APaige

    Man that is a lot of dead ‘honor students’. If CNN did the report it would include one anecdotal story about how DeLaQuifa was filling out paperwork for his GED because he wanted to be a neurosurgeon.

  • JohnEngelman

    What bothers me is black on white murder.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Some how Johnny I doubt it,maybe black on jew.

  • Slightly OT.

    George Wallace did well in the white areas of Milwaukee. At one point, he visited Milwaukee to celebrate his success, and a bunch of his supporters there sang Dixie in Polish. GW said it was the best version of Dixie he ever heard.

  • IKantunderstand

    I expect that any day now, enterprising Blacks will band together and start brewing a new beer. In the fine German tradition of brewing beer in Milwaukee, there must be some abandoned breweries just waiting to be taken over by Negro brewmasters! Watermelon Lager, Fried Chicken Stout, Purple Drank(aged twenty minutes, primo!), and the soon to be biggest seller of all time: Chitlins Ale. Feeling dissed, the naturally competitive Negroes in Detroit answered with distilling Hennessey Hooptie, and Chevrossier (it be Motown, yo.) Soon, Negroes all over the U.S. jumped on the manufacture your own booze bandwagon. Coming up with quaint, and sometimes poignant names to express their brutal treatment at the hands of the “White” man: “Jim Crow Beam” , “Southern Discomfort”, and different brands of “Coongac”. What was left of White America could not be found for comment. However, an enthusiastic Mezzomericano was jubilant at the additions to his liquor choices:”Me gusta aloto el boozeo”.

    • evilsandmich

      I recall a few episodes of that Andrew Zimmerman show where he’d showcase some brewed cocktail in Africa; but since they have no canning/bottling/pasteurization you have to drink it like that day (distillation would probably work better there, but boiling brew through a tube is some high science in that part of the world).

    • Nick A Siggers

      They already came up with jenkem, but I strongly warn you not to google it.

    • joesolargenius

      I believe that the Black Dog or Black Devil brand will be the dominant seller , perhaps one of us should start this Brewery and just say it’s a Black owned business, we might even get some stimilus money.

  • Spartacus

    Finally, some good news.

  • Major

    Give them another generation or two…they’re knocking each other off faster than they do in Crapistan…which is what they’re turning many American cities into anyway.

    Maybe they’ll get it down to 10% or half…6%? Problem is that 12% isn’t realistic. If you assume that half are males…that’s 6% and halve that for the younger ones doing the killing…that’s 3% or so. 3% committing more than half the crimes in the country? That’s what it pretty much comes down too. If we had 3% of the country suffering from TB or malaria….there’d be a panic and the government wouldn’t hesitate to find a cure, would they?

    Looks like whites are committing crimes at 2-3 times their percentage of the population in this zip-code–interesting.
