touchdown on the titans first play from scrimmage. murray ties a franchise record with at least 1 rushing td in 5 straight games. the titans found the end zone against at will against defenseless green bay- 4 straight touchdowns. marcus mariota to anthony fasano with no packers player in the same zip code! 21 nothing. the packers trailed 35-10 before aaron rodgers threw his 2nd and final td pass..he was intercepted twice..13 yards to james starks who returned for the first time in a 35-16. mason crosby missed the point after. rodgers, under siege all day-sacked 5 times..a 20 yard td run. he gets rocked in the end zone. that cost the titans a penalty. 35-22. but marioto threw his 4th td pass ..41- 22. that was that. 47-25 final. tim van vooren with the blitz. for the second straight week, the packers behind from the
at tennessee. this on sunday, is a bad loss. we understand how poorly we performed today as a team. we're disappointed. we have higher standards than that. we have higher expectations of one another. so that's what we'll tap into and grab onto. you gotta remain positive come together. everybody is gonna be coming down on us, and that's just how it happens. we just have to stick together. i mean, things didn't go the way we wanted them to, but our confidence never wavered. we came out, they got up a little bit on us, and they won the game. you guys don't believe me, but it's always short term. it's always week by week. that's the only way you manage this 16 game season. so, specially when you get into a situation like we are with three on the road or three or four at home, whatever it was. it's all week by week. if you start looking at anything past that, your mind is gonna start spinning, and you're gonna be in trouble. when asked specifically if jobs are on the line, aaron rodgers says after the game in nashville, 'that's the nature of the
regular season for green bay. at nissan stadium, tim van vooren, fox6 sports. tim brandon and yours truly will have a lot more to show and tell on the blitz tonight at 10:35. including the tandem of ted thompson and mike mccarthy. the vikings lost their 4th straight game. that's the packers only saving grace. but..questions abound on 1265 lombardi ave. ted, mary. the law is clear cut--felons aren't supposed to have guns. and if they're caught with them--the punishment is suppose to be severe. the fox six investigators dug deep--very deep and found case after case after case where felons with guns were not punished. tonight, he's asks the milwaukee county district attorney why not? a different type of "thunder down under". a major earthquake in new zealand today-- why people braced for what
a fox 6 investigation finds felons caught with guns often spend littl our story, one elected official says he plans to take action. fox 6 investigator bryan polcyn shows you what this state lawmaker plans to do... and why he asked to see the data we spent eight months collecting. milwaukee police rely heavily on data analysis to catch criminals. but if you want to know what happens to them after they get caught, well, the data trail quickly goes cold. that's why our painstaking analysis of felons with firearms caught the attention of a milwaukee
may have gone soft on crime. every year, milwaukee police confiscate hundreds of guns from criminals who are not allowed to have them. like 20-year-old demontae robinson. at age 14, robinson was convicted of attempted armed robbery... a juvenile crime equivalent to a felony. three years later, milwaukee police spotted him in a no handgun. they found even more guns in a house where he was staying. prosecutors charged him with possession of a firearm by a delinquent. but four months later, they dismissed the case. "i looked at it and i was like, 'why was this case dismissed?'"milwauk ee d-a john chisholm says police began to doubt they'd arrested the right man. but there was also this... one of the officers involved was injured on the job...
seven days later, he was arrested for shooting a man multiple times near 38th and hampton. but prosecutors dropped the gun possession charge. and then a judge threw out the shooting case, when the state wasn't ready for trial. "he got out because the speedy trial demand could not be met." robinson is now facing charges in yet another shooting... that never could've happened if he'd been in prison in the first place. 'once we make an arrest, something else has to happen. and all too often, eight months, the fox 6 investigators compiled data from more than 3- thousand, 6-hundred felon in possession cases in milwaukee county. more than a third of the time, charges were never filed. hundreds of others were charged, then dismissed. but even when felons are convicted of having guns... we found 20 percent serve less than a year in jail. and 75 percent serve less than three. "it doesn't reflect a lack of
didn't care about the cases we wouldn't charge them in the first place."chisholm says caseloads are massive and gun cases can be complicated. but milwaukee police chief ed flynn is frustrated. 'in the past three years, weve arrested close to 200 people 2 or more times for being a felon in possession of firearms.' people like joshua moore, convicted of possession of firearm by a felon in 2013... 2015... and again in "there's a revolving door in our criminal justice system thats allowing this to happen." when state assemblyman joe sanfelippo saw our investigation... he immediately asked to see the data we'd collected. "we have been searching for those very statistics and they just didn't exist."the owner of american united taxi is a tough-on-crime republican... who was already planning to introduce a series of crime bills in the next legislative session. now,
and all the work that you put into it, i think there should be a state audit of crime in our state and get these types of statistics from our police departments and our district attorneys and our judges." "we try to use data to make good decisions."flynn says police are the only ones doing data analysis. "the rest of the system is incapable of thinking strategically about crime and violence."chisholm admits their record-keeping system is not conducive to sophisticated data reporting. maxine white says they aren't equipped to do it either. "i don't pretend to know how to make the judiciary work better. i don't. i'm not a judge. but there must be some way? you know? and i just dont get the sense there's a lot of imagination." "last month, chief judge maxine white declined my request for an on camera interview, saying she'd prefer to be part of a follow-up story. since then, i've called twice asking to schedule that follow-up interview. she has yet to call back."
fingers. it's easy to say, 'oh, the judges aren't sentencing tough enough, the da's aren't charging enough.' but let's find the facts, like you were able to dig out."sanfelippo believes a lenient criminal justice system may be driving up violent crime... but he admits it's just a theory... unless there's data to back it up. "i want to make sure we have the facts and the data available so that when we're putting new laws on the books, they're going to be effective laws." milwaukee county's chief deputy district attorney, kent loe like that of demontae robinson illustrate how important witnesses are to successful prosecutions. in both the gun possession case and his first shooting case, witness problems led to both cases being dismissed. meanwhile, representative sanfelippo says he is intent on requesting a statewide audit of crime data. he also wants to create a state crime commission. he plans to float both ideas when the legislature reconvenes in january. you and the fox 6 investigators
compile this data. is there somewhere we can go to see the fruits of all that work? there is now. for the first time, we are publishing two files produced as a result of our data collection and analysis. the first includes information on more than 25-hundred cases from 2011 through 2015. the second includes sentencing information for cases in 2016. you can view both files on the links page of u com -- or your fox six news mobile app. coming up on fox 6 news at nine...served with a side of "thank you" a local restaurant opens its doors today to show their appreciation to law enforcement. and still ahead, a higher calling. the special mission for one choir in southeast wisconsin that has
