2 Sides to Bice's Commemorative Coin Article

Over the weekend Dan Bice penned an investigative article about State Attorney General Brad Schimel spending $10,000 on commemorative coins.  He implied that this is either a waste of money or inappropriate. 

That's up to you to decide, but what I did find highly ironic is the placement of the story in the print edition of the MJS.

 Bice's piece garnered front page placement for this earth shattering story.

On the second page was a positive article about Milwaukee police and how they avoided deadly force in arresting a homicide suspect.  Here's the irony of the story - the police officers were given a "challenge coin" for their actions.  A picture accompanied the print version of the article but I couldn't find it online.  Here it is.

From what I can gather from the Bice article, this is the same type of coin that the Attorney General is using and for the same reason.  Seems to be a heads I win, tails you lose story for Mr. Bice.

Schimel has his name on it and it is being paid for by the taxpayers. The MPD one isn't self-serving for the chief and it's probably been paid for by confiscated loot, just like the DARE cares.

It really is pitiful that you couldn't see that for yourself. Then again, you thinking behaving criminally is OK too.
