How do you get to 23 operating-while-suspended citations in the first place?  At what point , if any, are those charged with  operating-while-suspended jailed?  50 offenses?  100 offenses?

A multiple offender of DUI and multiple repeat operating without a license offender killed one of my immediate family members, and critically injured his child. I don't understand how these people just get a fine and are release back to reoffend. This happened out of state. It isn't just Wisconsin that is failing on this enforcement.

Beth, at Racine Uncovered, lost her sister to a guy driving on a suspended license. I know she's worked with legislators to change laws.

As I told you about my friend being shot to death by the mother of their daughter. The bond was set at 250K, which means her family will come up with 25K and get her sorry ass out of jail. Our justice system Is a joke.

KK, I'm old now, and If what happened to you happened to me, I already know what I would do. What the hell Is the difference If I sit In a chair all day, or sit In a cell all day? Each and every day, I worry about my family, and all these screwballs they were married to at one time. I am a VERY non-violent person, but when it comes to family, I could never promise anything.
