Milwaukee is in for another night of violence…Even though there was an announcement of the racial identity of the Milwaukee Police Officer who killed a criminal, the protests go on…and the idiotic statements go on too…
A thug was killed by a police officer then the black community went nuts…burning businesses and looting. The protesters also targeted white people to assault. It helps NOTHING to add fuel to this fire but a Milwaukee Alderman did just that when he said this is a “warning cry” and went on to speak of “oppression”….Here’s a little of his rhetoric:
MILWAUKEE IS “the absolute worst place in America for African-Americans to live in the entire country.” – Milwaukee Alderman
He said black people are “tired of living under this oppression” and while he said he didn’t justify the violence itself, “nobody can deny that there are racial problems here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, that have to be rectified.”
Rainey even seemed to threaten more violence.
“This is the warning cry,” he said of the rioters burning their community to the ground and shooting at firefighters who tried to put out a gas station fire.
“Where do we go from here?” he asked. “Where do we go as a community from here? Do we continue with the inequity, the injustice, the unemployment, the under-education that creates these byproducts that we see this evening? Do we continue that?”

So even though it has been reported that the officer who shot and killed the career criminal, people are gathering in front of the police station trying to stop cars in the middle of the street.
“No justice, no peace, no racist police”
Stop the protest…The cop that shot the thug is black!
The Milwaukee police officer who fatally shot an armed suspect Saturday is black, sources have told the Journal Sentinel.
City and police officials are expected to speak publicly this afternoon about the shooting and rioting that broke out in the surrounding Sherman Park neighborhood afterward.
Earlier Sunday, city and community leaders gathered to discuss the unrest and the underlying concerns of residents. And Gov. Scott Walker activated the Wisconsin National National Guard to assist the Milwaukee Police Department upon request.
Walker said he put the guard on alert after a request from Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. and conferring with Mayor Tom Barrett and Major Gen. Donald Dunbar.
The development came as a sense of calm and order returned to the neighborhood Sunday morning after a night when businesses were torched, cars overturned and set ablaze, and gunfire erupted following the fatal police shooting.
