It's an old cliché that tragedy can bring out the best in a community, but that doesn't make it any less true. In another display of support for the victims of Sunday's tragic mass shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, former Violent Femmes bassist Brian Ritchie and the traditional Indian music act Kirtan with Ragani will anchor a night of music at Shank Hall. Other performers will include John Sparrow, Dave Gelting, Silas Ritchie and Michael Kashou. Organizers are requesting a $10 minimum donation, all of which will go to the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin.


A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
