Recently, our congressman, Rep. Bryan Steil, held a forum to discuss proposals to defund the police and their impact on crime and law enforcement across Wisconsin. Crime is rising and is a threat to us all, and it is good to see someone doing something about it.

Even though Rock County Sheriff Troy Knudson attended and shared his ideas, The Gazette made no mention of the event in its paper. The forum was covered by Milwaukee TV and newspapers in Racine, Kenosha, and Lake Geneva, but our paper didn’t print a word about it.

Instead, earlier this summer it ran a letter to the editor from a local Democratic Party leader that actually blamed the police for starting the violence in Kenosha.

It’s time to cover both sides of the defund the police story.
