Let's not move on

The verdicts in the Frank Jude case are in.

Let's not move on.

The whole sorry, sickening scene of cops gone wild should not be viewed as an aberration that won't happen again. It needs to be seen as something that cannot be allowed to happen again.

Don't forget.

And use the memory to build a better Police Department and a better community.

Well said. It's important to remember the past because it allows us to navigate the future.

PS. I'm writing from the local desk at thenewsroom.com, you have a great local blog. Come check us out if you ever need great free content for it.

No offense intended, but "moving on" and "forgetting" are not necessarily the same thing.

I believe the people of Milwaukee can move on without forgetting about what happened, and I'd like to believe that's what we're going to see as the community works to address the problems that led to that situation in the first place.
