[Fond du Lac, WI…] Eric Toney, Fond du Lac County District Attorney and Law Enforcement’s choice for Attorney General, today released the following statement in response to the supervisor’s organization endorsing his campaign of the Milwaukee Police Department.

“Milwaukee is experiencing a violent crime crisis in which criminals literally get away with murder. As Attorney General, I will fight to ensure Milwaukee Police have the resources and personnel necessary to end historic drug and drug abuse and will ask the DOJ’s initial prosecution authority over Milwaukee to work with local law enforcement and prosecutors to lock up more gangs. -dangerous bangers and drug dealers who have made Milwaukee one of the deadliest cities in America,” Toney said.

“Milwaukee police supervisors know I have the back of the cops and will put the full power of the DOJ behind reversing the deadly plague that has infected Wisconsin’s largest city. It is unacceptable that death rates Milwaukee homicide resolution is less than 50% As of July 27, 2022, Milwaukee Police Department data shows there have been 133 homicides, this represents a 40% increase from the same time in 2021. If it stays at the current rate, it will break the record of 193 in one year, which was set last year, Toney said.

“Josh Kaul is guilty of abandoning Milwaukee by leaving vacant criminal prosecutor and DCI officer positions at the DOJ. Kaul effectively funded the police during a time of historic violence and drug abuse. I will ensure that prosecutors and DOJ DCI agents are in full force, and I will work with local law enforcement to reverse Milwaukee’s trend of breaking its murder record every year Milwaukee crime is bleeding across Wisconsin and protecting Milwaukee, we protect all of Wisconsin,” Toney said.

The Milwaukee Police Supervisor’s Organization released the following endorsement statement: “The MPSO endorses Eric Toney for Wisconsin Attorney General. Eric Toney has proven himself to be law enforcement’s choice to be a fair and tough prosecutor while working as the Fond du Lac County District Attorney. History has shown that the “weakness” of crime prosecutors leads to rampant crime in our communities. It’s time for Wisconsin to choose a prosecutor who abides by the law and resists the political pressures of the day. For these reasons, the decision is easy, and the Milwaukee Police Supervisor Organization endorses Eric Toney as Attorney General. Let’s do Eric Wisconsin’s Top Cop!
