“We are excited to bring this new transportation option to the City of Racine. Electric scooters are fun, economical, and can help reduce our carbon footprint, but we need our residents and visitors to the City to make sure they follow the rules and use them safely. With summer finally arriving, this is the perfect time for everyone to give them a try,” said Mayor Cory Mason.

Where is Maurice?
City of Racine Police Chief
Newly appointed City of Racine Police Department Chief Maurice Robinson has been on the job since his swearing in ceromony on May 10th, 2021, yet few have seen or heard from him since then.
It also appears the the majority of the men and women in blue who serve our community are also asking "where's
We at RCC are wondering if Chief Robinson figured out he got hoodwinked by "defund the police" Mayor Mason, his puppet common council and the inept Police and Fire Commission.
All of the officers we have contacted has stated they have not met or talked to newly appointed Chief Maurice Robinson before or after his swearing in on May 10th.
It appears his work calander has been blanked out on Friday afternoons and word on the street is that he has been traveling back to Cincinnati for the weekends.
So what has Chief Robinson been up to since he became chief?
The Police and Fire Commission did have the following on today's schedule but we could not find any video or audio of today's alleged discussions.

We at RCC feel for this newly appointed Police Chief and wish him the best at his new job. Robinson has to answer to a corrupt mayor, a puppet common council and an inept, derelict, anti-police and "no names" Police and Fire Commission.
Check out the City of Racine website to determine who is on the Police and Fire Commission, bet you can't find the list of the 4 fools on the commission with an unappointed vacant seat for over a year.
June 4 is National Cheese Day, also known as "another reason why Wisconsin is the best" day.
We've got the history — Anne Pickett of Lake Mills created the first "official" Wisconsin cheese in 1841. Wisconsin produces more than 3 million pounds of cheese, that's more than 25% of all the cheese made in the U.S. (You're welcome America.)
A Milwaukee child sex trafficking victim can raise a special defense as a trafficking victim against charges that she murdered her trafficker in Kenosha three years ago.
Chrystul Kizer, 20, was 17 when she killed 34-year-old Randall P. Volar III.
Prosecutors say she went to Volar's home on June 5, 2018, shot him in the head, set a fire in his home and stole his car, computer and cash. They say it was a premeditated crime to steal Volar's BMW.
Kizer's lawyers argued she had snapped after years of abuse by Volar.
A Wisconsin law adopted in 2008 provides an affirmative defense for victims of human and child sex trafficking to “any offense committed as a direct result" of those crimes, even if no one was ever prosecuted for the trafficking.
Many states have similar laws, but they have never been used against homicide charges before.
A defendant has the burden of proving an affirmative defense, but if it is proven, it defeats charges even if prosecutors prove all the elements of the crime, for example, self-defense against a homicide charge.
A judge in Kenosha County concluded in late 2019 that the defense was meant only to protect sex trafficking victims from being charged with prostitution or other crimes related to sex trafficking or human trafficking of workers — like taking someone's passport, or threatening them, or making someone else commit a crime — that they might be forced to commit as part being trafficked themselves
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee said Attorney General Josh Kaul doesn't have the authority, and that the investigation is "anti-Catholic bigotry"
The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is pushing back against a recently announced attorney general investigation into sexual abuse by Catholic clergy, calling it a display of "anti-Catholic bigotry" and a violation of the First Amendment.
In a letter from the archdiocese's attorney, Frank LoCoco of the Milwaukee firm Husch Blackwell, contends Attorney General Josh Kaul doesn't have the authority to investigate the Catholic dioceses of the state and that doing so would go against the U.S. Constitution and state laws.
In the letter, LoCoco suggests that the investigation may be motivated by anti-religious sentiments, and that the probe is looking back too far in time.
The first-term, Democratic attorney general announced the investigation in April.
Led by Kaul's Department of Justice, the probe focuses on abuse allegations against clergy and other faith leaders, many of which date back decades and involve religious officials who are now dead.
An investigation will be difficult to get underway with the archdiocese declining to produce documents, though.
In a Tuesday email to congregants, Archbishop Jerome Listecki did vow to cooperate with any investigation into living members of the clergy brought forward during this inquiry. He wrote that instead of focusing on past abuse, Kaul should be investigating new claims.
In an email Thursday afternoon, Kaul said the investigation was launched in pursuit of accountability, healing and to prevent future abuse.
A good father would have pulled his son-in-law aside and said “over the side – you slide” before they left on this trip. He would want to protect his grandchildren, not his cock-crazed, family-destroyer whore daughter.

UFC legend Ortiz steps down from Huntington Beach mayor role citing ‘character assassination’ and fears for family safety (VIDEO)

UFC legend Tito Ortiz has stepped down from his role as Huntington Beach mayor pro tem while citing personal attacks and voicing concerns for both his safety and that of his family when explaining the move on Tuesday.
Ortiz, a former light heavyweight champion of the elite MMA promotion and one of its early old school stars, took office back in December.
Receiving 42,000 votes, this was the biggest tally in poll history for the highest office in the California community he hails from.
Yet just some six months since taking over the reins, he has already decided to leave his first big political role.
"I was under the notion that I was in a bi-partisan position and that we all had a common goal that our city and our constituents could have. To put it frankly, that’s not the case," said Ortiz while reading from a statement at a city council meeting where he announced the shock resignation.
"From Day 1, I was sworn in and I was met with hostility and judgment. Being a public figure, nothing is new. However, to be the sole focus of character assassination each and every week, with multiple news stories and leaked personal information – all of which were in hopes to slander and defame my name," he continued.
"I thought I was up to this job, but I knew I had over 40,000 constituents who were there counting on me. As of recent, the attacks against me moved to involve my family.
"I now feel [that] their safety is in danger. To put it simply, this job isn’t working for me," he confessed.
After Ortiz made the announcement, council went into recess but the remaining members did not pass any comment on the matter when they returned.
His relationship was long rocky with his colleagues, though, who he accused of singling him out for his conservative views which have included refusals to wear a facemask and get the vaccine to protect himself against Covid-19.
Running under a "Make Huntington Beach Safe Again" slogan in tribute to Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" counterpart, Ortiz told a group of sympathizers to the ex-US president "We’ve got to be on the right side of history, the good side of history" at a December "Stop the Steal" rally opposing the election of Joe Biden.
"This is good versus evil. I don’t want a communist country," Ortiz said, yet this was only the beginning of his controversies at the helm.
