The Milwaukee 5

Ah, I missed out on the Milwaukee 5 blogstorm on Friday. Almost everything has been said by now, so here is my miniscule 2 cents. The plea bargain should have surprised no one. If anything, the fact that this ever saw the inside of a court room should. This is E. Michael McCann's legacy to Milwaukee County, and this just follows the pattern of his previous 30 years in the office. Everybody knew something like this could happen-Charlie Sykes was running an informal poll before lunch on Friday that was leaning heavily towards an acquital or hung jury. Disappointing it was, but a surprise it wasn't.
