Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Police arrested a homeless man Sunday after he pulled a pocket knife on a resident at HALO homeless shelter.

Kevin Alexander told police officers he thought other residents were going to attack him, so he pulled his knife, according to a criminal complaint.

But staff said Alexander became angry when the shelter ran out of food for lunch. Even after other residents offered him a sandwich, he was irate and saying he would fight them. Alexander left in his van and as later picked up by police.

He’s charged with disorderly conduct with use of a dangerous weapon.
