Prescription drug addiction has exploded everywhere. This robbery is a desparate attempt to continue just that, an addiction. Time to wake-up Waukesha, this isn't Mayberry anymore....nor has it been for quite some time.

Waukesha has always sucked there's nothing to do here for the youth except to form alcohol or drug addictions. And the Eco crash mixed with urban sprawl is a bad combination on top of it.

Nice broad brush you're painting with there, Zec. I was born and raised in Waukesha and spent all by 4 of my 22 years square in the middle of the city. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in 4 years and have since found employment right here in Waukesha. While I do drink, socially, I've never formed an alcohol or drug addiction. Keep generalizing.

You have to look at the big picture. Keeping yourself out of the equation usually helps when doing so. But that's great you've never done drugs and drink socially. Unfortunately as waukesha grows larger so does the crime rate. It's not so much a broad brush I'm painting with, I'm just stating statistics Dale.

Sorry that Waukeshas image has been tainted in the process.
