The world has gone completely mad. An officer shot an armed suspect engaged in suspicious activity and crazed rioters reacted by burning down buildings, shooting up the city, and attacking officers. It gets worse, the reaction from some officials is empathy for the criminals and the “angry crowds” who are also criminals.
During a foot chase, a Milwaukee police officer shot and killed an ARMED suspect. It’s allowed and it’s good policing because an armed suspect can easily turn and shoot an officer or an innocent bystander.
One of the men was carrying a stolen semiautomatic handgun, and a Milwaukee officer shot him during the foot chase, according to police. The officer ordered him to drop the gun, but hit him in the chest and the arm when he didn’t, cops said, the NY Daily News reported.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke asked Gov. Scott Walker on Sunday morning for the National Guard to be mobilized, FOX6 reported because the rioting was something you’d see in a third world country.
“We cannot allow for a repeat of what happened last night,” Clarke said in a statement. ” I am going to utilize all available resources to accomplish that.”
Legitimate leaders blamed the Black Lives Matter movement for igniting the violence, Fox News reported.
Black Lives Matter has “stoked hysteria,” Bishop E.W. Jackson told “Fox & Friends” Sunday. “A mass hysteria has taken grip” and President Obama has made it worse by embracing the BLM movement, Jackson said.
He added: The BLM movement works on the false premise “police are out hunting down black men.” They are “using race as a way of avoiding responsibility,” Jackson said.
Innocent black people are most often the victims of these Soros-funded and violent “protesters” who are only furthering a leftist agenda. They serve no other purpose.
The violent, probably paid, crowd of angry people became violent Saturday night, after the shooting without even knowing the details.
One officer was hit in the head with a brick, the crowd set fires to stores and shot guns in the clashes on the city’s North Side while officials pleaded for calm. They’re begging criminals.
Police said the crowd also tossed rocks at them as they tried to clear the neighborhood. The crowd knocked down and punched one reporter for the local newspaper and chased other journalists from the area, according to the Journal-Sentinel.
Often, the angry crowds include gangs who now have a license to act lawlessly. They don’t need space to act out as our DoJ has ordered.
After one long confrontation, the crowd set fire to a gas station.
Listen to these violent loons chant “black power.” If this is what black power is, it better be stamped out now.

Fires were started at a BMO Harris Bank branch, a beauty supply company and O’Reilly Auto Parts stores, a “grim and emphatic Mayor Tom Barrett said”, the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal reported reported.
The firefighters couldn’t fight the blaze at the station at first because of the gunfire.
The report continued with the mayor asking parents to keep a tight rein on their children because many involved were young. He said the officers were doing everything they could to restore order.
It’s absurd to plead with people and beg for calm. These leaders are weak and ill-informed on proper policing.
Listen to this nonsense from the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal report:
…Aldermen Russell W. Stamper II and Khalif Rainey delivering strongly worded statements about the disturbance springing from the frustrations of black Milwaukeeans and the problems they face.
Rainey, who represents the area where the man was shot by the officer and the disturbance occurred, was particularly pointed. He said Sherman Park had become “a powder keg” this summer, and ended his remarks by implying that downtown could be the site of disturbances if the issues facing African-Americans here not addressed.
“This entire community has sat back and witnessed how Milwaukee, Wis., has become the worst place to live for African-Americans in the entire country,” Rainey said. “Now this is a warning cry. Where do we go from here? Where do we go as a community from here?
“Do we continue – continue with the inequities, the injustice, the unemployment, the under-education, that creates these byproducts that we see this evening? … The black people of Milwaukee are tired. They’re tired of living under this oppression. This is their existence. This is their life. This is the life of their children.
“Now what has happened tonight may have not been right; I’m not justifying that. But no one can deny the fact that there’s problems, racial problems, here in Milwaukee, Wis., that have to be closely, not examined, but rectified. Rectify this immediately. Because if you don’t, this vision of downtown, all of that, you’re one day away. You’re one day away.”
This is utterly absurd. This condones criminal behavior and ignores their real problem — years and years of Democrat rule and policies.
What about the inequities of destroying some hard-working person’s business – they might well be owned by blacks?
Multiple shots were heard throughout the night. Insane that this is being excused.
CNN has the audacity to call the criminal rioters an “angry crowd” and their actions “protests”. People better wake up to what is going on here.
This false narrative began with Trayvon Martin but it didn’t work out because the shooter wasn’t white and he wasn’t a police officer. Then along came the now-debunked “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” tale out of Ferguson. When the truth came out, the left decided to ignore it.
They went on to Baltimore and other places, often using criminals who were killed as their heroes.
George Soros, who makes a living out of toppling governments in the West, has funded these groups indirectly to the tune of $30 million plus dollars and through organizations like MORE.
This is an invented crisis meant to overturn our justice system and put all local police under national control. The police can’t be locally controlled in a socialist government.
We definitely don’t need a national police force.
