Join us: Stop the Violence

Posted:

Recent events have sparked a heated debate about violence and public safety.

Just recently, a gunman shot three people at an office building in Phoenix, Arizona, killing one person.

Here in Wisconsin, a man with a white supremacist history stormed a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek. Six people were killed and four were wounded.

And, of course, we all remember the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, where a gunman stormed into an elementary school, killing 20 school children and six adults.

That particular incident has re-ignited the public debate about violence, what causes it, and what to do about it.

Newsline 9 wants you to be part of that discussion. Join us Monday, February 11 at 6:30 p.m. for Stop the Violence, a special town hall meeting at Dale's Weston Lanes. Come together with leaders and experts to discuss the level of violence in our community, what's working, and what can be improved.

Stop the Violence will air Thursday, February 21, at 6:30 p.m. on Newsline 9.
