treatment, and related medical expenses, begin. while he says he doesn't have a clue what the tally is, thus far, he knows that going from this jigsaw-puzzle of bones, to this surgical repair, will cost more than he makes as a school custodian. i honestly thought the city would step-up 'n' say, 'you know, we did this. we'll make it right.' to be clear, kurt does not blame the firing officers. not a bit. but, while sheboygan police refer him to the state's victim assistance program, he would like more help buddy's car with a snowplow, last winter, and they recouped all of his losses to him. so, a human being, i get shot through the arm, they disable me, and, seriously, i haven't even been contacted by 'em. kurt explains, at this point, there is no timetable for his return to work, at either of his two jobs. but his medical costs continue to climb. if you're interested in helping make a contribution to cover those costs, you can, certainly, do so, by logging on to fox-six-now-dot-com, and

mental disease. that's the ruling against marquis mar-keece johnson, the man who briefly abducted a 7-year-old girl last summer. he's not going to prison but he's still going away for a long time. our a.j. bayatpour explains... abducting her in the way that he did is certainly traumatic for that young child. judge jeffery wagner describes it as an egregious crime - then
young girl near 17th and highland and running off. the girl is able to break free a short distance away. i'm messed up right now. when it happened, fox 6 talked to tabitha bridges, who was relieved her daughter, andrea, was able to get away. i kicked out his arms and then i ran to my mama, crying and screaming. johnson's grandmother told fox 6 that johnson said he took the girl because he thought she was his. we questioned him and he said he gonna take the little girl because its his daughter and the moms not taking care of her. actually, johnson has no connection to the girl. in court wednesday, the prosecutor says when line-up, he did something else that was disturbing. the defendant took it upon himself, in this hyper - secure setting, to drop his pants and expose his genitals; the two seven-year-old who were watching the line-up saw this. johnson's lawyer says the man is no threat to society - as long as he's on his medication. he doesnt mean to
over his impulses when hes unmedicated; i think the doctors are very clear about that. but citing johnson's history of not taking his medicine, the judge hands down the maximum sentence in this case - a commitment of 25 years in a state mental health facility. in milwaukee, a.j. bayatpour, fox 6 news. as part of his sentence, johnson will also have to register as a sex offender. a homeless sex offender was arrested along waukesha's riverwak that he was exposing himself. 55-year-old timothy inzeo was allegedly sitting on a park bench last saturday - when a woman confronted him about his genitals being exposed. inzeo told police he wasn't aware he was doing it. a records check revealed inzeo is homeless because shelters will not accept him due to his sex offender status, new tonight - milwaukee police chief ed flynn attending a crime and policing summit in chicago.. the meeting at the university of chicago comes two days after
13 years. monday alone - nine people were killed across the city. flynn along with top police officials from nearly a dozen other major cities -- discussed national trends in crime, and the problems many departments face.. if we were to draw and elipsis and a density map around our highest poverty neighbors with our highest rate of unemployment highest rate of school drop outs and the highest number of abandoned home with that elipis would be the location of our highest rates of violence. we're the social agency of first resort for the poor. others feel like they're located in states that are "hostile" to their interests. wisconsin's controversial voter i-d law is back in federal court. today -- an appeals court stayed a previous ruling which struck down parts of the law. judge lynn adelman had issued an injunction last month which would allow people to vote without an i-d... only if they signed an affadavit saying they could not get an i-d and why. today's ruling throws out that exception. the

and november what happens to this, right? it comes at a turbulent time for trump. tuesday, during a rally in north carolina, he said hillary clinton wanted to essentially abolish the second amendment, before creating the latest controversy. if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. although the second amendment people, maybe there is. i dont know some have interpreted that as trump suggesting against clinton. congressman sean duffy, a trump supporter, blamed the media for blowing up the comment. but duffy says trump has to get on track by sticking to his economic and national security message . that sits squarely with the trump campaign. listen, be more focused, be more scripted and be more disciplined the trump campaign is still putting a lot of time and energy into wisconsin v.p. candidate mike pence will make two stops here on thursday including one in milwaukee. on the marquette

process." many in the public -- and the chairman of the milwaukee county board of supervisors, have already come out in opposition of the idea. if the abele includes the fees in his budget, the board would vote on it near the end of november. big things are happening for the milwaukee torrent soccer team.they just finished their first outdoor season. tonight, we learn they'll play indoor soccer starting in december. but as tom pipines shows you, it's what they do for kids that goes beyond the game. 12:54:38 i want to do something for kids who can not afford soccer; because we all know that soccer is expensive in a club. and give the kids something that they can look up to. 12:54:47 milwaukee torrent soccer coach andreas davi says you can call him andy because it's faster to say. but good luck keeping up with the energetic native of germany! davi not only coaches the torrent-a 1st year pro franchise- in the national premier league, he took a job as head coach of the whitefish
