Caterpillar is expected to lay off 250-300 workers in South Milwaukee.
Adam: I'm a hard core 'make them serve their sentence guy' (and can't stand Obama) but here are two viewpoints. I don't like mandatory sentencing because it doesn't allow a judge to do the job for which they were elected. SOME of these people I am certain were not the dangerous drug dealers we imagine and fall under 3-strikes kind of laws. However, here is the opposing argument...often, the DA looks at a case with a bad guy (robbery/rape/murder) but don't believe they can get a conviction because of a sketchy witness or evidence. They settle for a lesser drug charge just to get the #$%$ off of the street. Some of these people fall into that category.
