The murder rate in Milwaukee has risen dramatically.
After years in decline, the pace of homicides is on the rise in some 30 big American cities.
As of Friday, homicides in the capital Washington were up 40.5 percent from a year ago at 111, police said.
The situation is also worrying in St Louis and Milwaukee, which saw the number of murders go up 60 percent and 76 percent respectively year-to-date from August 11 to August 31, The New York Times reported recently.
Why aren't media and "Lives Matter" activists focusing on these disturbing increases in murder?
