Wisconsin’s new attorney general has put drug pushers on notice. Republican Brad Schimel said he’s seen a lot during his 25 years as a prosecutor.
“I’ve dealt with victims of every type of evil you could imagine, and some you would have a hard time imagining,” Schimel said.
But in his remarks following taking the oath of office as Attorney General, Schimel said heroin and prescription opiates are the tougest challenge he’s seen.
“I am committed to fighting the scourge of heroin that is gripping this state, and I’m putting drug smugglers and dealers on notice: you are public enemy number one.”
Schimel, who succeeds J.B. Van Hollen, said he’s “sick of meeting with parents who’ve had to bury a child lost to drugs.”
