N. Dakota vs. Milwaukee -- Update

JS finally gets around to it.

Nothing against the B-1 top-o'-the page story in the Journal Sentinel today about the North Dakota sentencing of a Milwaukee man for killing a Hales Corners man. It's a perfectly fine story and the taking of a life and its consequences demand media attention. So maybe I missed it, but where is paper's coverage of the man sentenced Milwaukee for the Milwaukee killing of Michael Tabbert, 45, a father who was shot during a holdup in December? Tabbert, a cashier at a northwest side restaurant called Wong's, was shot despite complying with the robbers' directives.

For those interested Brandon Lamar Porter, 20, was sentenced this week to 33 years in prison and 15 years extended supervision for his role in the slaying.
