La Carte de Mort - Online Edition (UPDATED)
Soon after I started working in Milwaukee, one of the engineers I worked with was slapped around by the corporate diversity police for maintaining his "Map de Mort." This was a Milwaukee city map with pushpins at the locations of each homicide noted in the news. Somehow this instance of depicting reality was deemed to be racially insensitive.
Being new to the city, I found the map to be enlightening and a fair warning of areas of the city to avoid. The murder of Scott Huggins brought me back to my friend's map. I have started la Carte de Mort with the location of Mr. Huggins homicide.
I plan to maintain and update this map regularly. Hopefully this will not include the addition of many new digital pushpins.
UPDATE: I found a list of all 2007 Milwaukee homicides at this website, and used that information to provide an up-to-date map for 2007.
