Happy Birthday, Alexander. We Have Not Forgotten.

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on August 28, 2010

From Milwaukee County First:

Yesterday was Alexander Orlowski’s birthday.  He would have been 23 years old.  Unfortunately, he was not here to celebrate his birthday with his family and his friends.  Alexander passed away three years ago, while in the care of Milwaukee County at the House of Correction.

Even though I never met Alexander, he has been on my mind lately.  With the series of negligence and poor policy decisions coming to light at the mental health complex, it keeps reminding me of Alex, who passed away due to the same failed policies of Scott Walker.

Shortly before the first anniversary of Alexander’s passing, I had the opportunity to meet with Alexander’s parents, who allowed me to interview them and share their story.  I wrote it down in a series of three posts, which I published at folkbum’s rambles and rants.  Here are the links for your reading pleasure.  As you read them, remember, there are somethings more important than politics or money.
