Violent Protesters Riot, Burn Cars, Loot Buildings In Milwaukee After Police Kill Armed Suspect

Tyler Durden's picture

Following an unstable, several week calme between police and US inner city minorities, violence and riots returned to the US when protesters fired gunshots, hurled bricks and set a gas station on fire on Milwaukee's north side on Saturday night, hours after a patrol officer shot and killed an armed suspect who took flight after a traffic stop. The 23-year-old suspect, who had a lengthy arrest record, was carrying a stolen handgun loaded with 23 rounds of ammunition when police pulled over the vehicle for unspecified "suspicious activity," authorities said cited by Reuters. A second suspect who fled from the vehicle was quickly taken into custody.

Protesters set a police car ablaze and fires broke out at gas station, an auto parts store and at least three other businesses, officials and local media reported. "Our city is in turmoil tonight," said Alderman Ashanti Hamilton, president of the Milwaukee Common Council. Mayor Tom Barrett appealed for calm.

"This is a neighborhood that has been unfortunately affected by violence in the recent past," Barrett said, referring to a smaller disturbance a month earlier. "There are a lot of really, really good people who live in this area ... and can't stand this violence."

The night's series of events started shortly after 7:00pm local time, when police said a Milwaukee officer has shot and killed an armed man during a foot chase. Capt. Mark Stanmeyer says officers stopped a car with two people inside Saturday. He said the pair got out of the car and ran and that the officers chased them.

The 23-year-old man who was one of the people fleeing was armed with a handgun and was shot by an officer during the pursuit. The man's name wasn't immediately released. Stanmeyer says the man died at the scene. He says the handgun was determined to be stolen. The 24-year-old officer who shot him was promptly placed on administrative duty during the investigation. The officer's name wasn't immediately released.

Around 10 pm local time, clashes broke out when the police said one police officer was being treated after he was hit in the head by a brick through a squad car window.

By 11:15 pm the protests grew violent, as some 100 protesters skirmished with officers Saturday night. Police said in a tweet that officers were moving into an intersection and asking the crowd to disperse peacefully, but rocks were being thrown at officers. The department said in earlier tweets that one officer was injured by a thrown brick, a squad car had its windows smashed and another one was set on fire.

Just before midnight, a bank on Milwaukee's north side was been set ablaze in continuing unrest following the fatal shooting of a man by police. Smoke could be seen billowing from The BMO Harris branch a few blocks away.

It was at least the fourth building to burn, following a BP gas station, an O'Reilly Auto Parts store and a beauty supply store. Footage from a news helicopter also appeared to show a small grocery store had been looted. A traffic signal was also bent and bus shelters overturned.

By midnight, Milwaukee officials were asking the community for help restoring order on the city's north side. Mayor Tom Barrett implored the parents of any children at the scene to "get them home right now." Alderman Ashanti Hamilton promised to get information about the shooting to the public. "Please allow the process to work," he said.

Then around 12:30 pm,  during a news conference, Barrett said the north side was finally calming down after the latest night of inner city violence. Police mounted at least two efforts to push the protesters out of an intersection at the heart of the violence.

The unrest follows peaceful protests and some violence in U.S. cities over the past two years following high-profile killings by law enforcement officers in Baltimore, New York and Ferguson, Missouri. Outrage over police violence toward minority groups has given rise to the Black Lives Matter movement and touched off a national debate over the race issue and policing in the United States.

"This is a warning cry," Milwaukee Alderman Khalif Rainey said. "Black people of Milwaukee are tired. They are tired of living under this oppression."

As of 1 a.m. Central time, police said three arrests had been made in connection with the unrest. Shortly after 2 a.m. police said they were restoring order to the area and reducing deployments, but local news footage also showed a liquor store in flames just minutes before the release of the statement.

I'm sensing a (world wide) trend here.

Must be something in the air....and water and food and drugs and income disparity and wealth distribution and lying leadership and fake fiat and financial repression and.........

You're welcome to add to the list.

Seriously, I hope Trump will have all the criminals sterilized.

I'm looking forward to the day that the local cops ignore their orders from the Feds not to fight back and machine gun these mother fuckers in the streets.

geez, felons unite for fair treatment, never mind that we are committing crimes whilst we demand just treatment like law abiding citizens.

That police station looks like it was barricaded from the outside. Nothing makes sense anymore.

erkme73's picture

Police spokespeople, the Chief, Yellen, and Bahgdad Bob.   All cut from the same fabric.  Unable to tell the truth, when it means it makes them look bad.

I simply DO NOT believe any statement that comes from the police, when the suspect is dead.   The good 'ol boy system is what has a half dozen cops go to all the neghboring businesses to delete all surveillance videos.  It's the same thing that has them all lie for one another.  Dead men tell no tales.  Sure, the suspect may have had it coming, but until I see it on a body/dash/cell phone/surveillance video for myself, the official narrative is just that... a narrative.

To add to that, talk about cognitive dissonance...  I'm conflicted with the fact that I don't know which team to root for - the over reaching, militant police state that will kick in the teeth of anyone who doesn't comply or show adequate resepct in 0.5 nanosecods, or the pavement apes that think they should get a pass for burning down a city.

Ultimately, I think the former is a far greater threat.   The entitlement mentality of the poverty stricken blacks can be reformed EASILY compared to cracking the gangster-like code set by the thin blue wall.

The left is pleased today, one more notch.

They were so pleased with the co-founder of Black Lives Matter Deray McKesson that they rewarded

him with a professorship at Yale. The class is "In defense of looting"

because, uh.... Whitey.

Barry and his wookie had orgasms hearing fo the violence. One of his top goals has been to divide and destroy the nation.

It's a shame that they didn't burn down the BMO bank.

Imagine when Chicago goes full retard.

Stackers's picture

Erkme, You shouldn't root for either. The pavement apes are playing the other side's game when they go violent.

Violence is something the police state can react to and control. It gives the police state more justification for more of what's causing the problem.

Luciferians have it all wrong.  They are right about the Old Testament god being evil.  But they fall for one of the oldest and most reliable tricks in the book- the False Flag.  What if lucifer inspired his chosen people to commit all that carnage, but he did it while posing as God?  This drives people away from God and into lucifer's tentacles.

Low ranking Illuminati say that God is an evil tyrant, lucifer is a liberator, and the devil doesn't exist.

I think the God of the Cosmos is good, Jesus is a liberator, and lucifer = the god of the old testament = the devil.

Amazing how although 'armed' with no information about race in either of these articles cited, no evidence (so far) that the guy pointed a gun or shot at the officer, everyone is willing to take the side of the state.

Everyones assumptions may very well be true. If not, why so wiiling to side with the state's army in this case with almost zero information? You have played right into their hands.

The state thanks you all.


If the state decides to gun you down, how will you be described? "Gun owning, anti government, food hoarding wingnut was shot by police. More news at 11."

Call the cops for what they are.  They are the exact same as the Judenrate.  Marshall the thug elements of a society and charge them to keep the masses in line at the behalf of the elite.   The same negative forces that drove the Judenrate behaviour drives the cops to the point that those with the worst traits get promoted.

Segregation is the only way forward, we need completely separate societies. These people will never amount to anything, everything they have has been given to them and has cost a fortune and in much more than just monetary terms. If we want to move forward we have to segregate, it's the only way. Multiculturalism does not work. It has been given a good try and it has been a complete failure.

20-30 Somali Muslims terrorized the neighborhood and threatened to gang-rape at least one homeowner.

No hate-crime charges are apparently being considered by either the Minnesota authorities or the Obama Justice Department headed by Loretta Lynch.


"Yes we can!"


Vote Hillary/Kaine, 2016!!

tricorn teacup's picture

I expect practically all the rioters grew up and currently live in self segregated neighborhoods where they rarely have to deal with anyone of a different race.  In other words, segregation (by their choice) is part of the problem.  Multiculturalism is a problem in it's tolerance of deviance from "other" cultural groups.

That's just too much logic for the 80 IQ brigade.

Interesting that no one is protecting these stores that're getting looted/burned. . .   Probably because they are mostly franchises where the actual owners live in the 'burbs.  The minimum wage chashier sure isn't going to come down and lend a hand. 

Compare this to when the Rodney King riots hit, the Korean stores were left mostly intact because the owners of the stores and their families, who also worked those stores every fucking day, held the line with arms. 

That's what makes a community - folks who are invested in that community.

Maybe the BLM should rename itself the OBCLM, ONLY BLACK CRIMINAL LIVES MATTER, since when didndo's shoot each other nobody seems to give a fuck, especially the BLM.

The police chief needs to drag in those black billionaires Oprah and Michael Jordan to talk to their tribe about whitey's oppression.


They be so oppressed getting billions from the stupid cracka audience.

On one hand, most here understand how the Soro's of world are running it into the toilet for their own personal gain.

Then, on the other hand, most here cannot see how it is the Blacks in the USA that are suffering the brunt of the "Soros type" of policies?


Wake up fuckheads..."Dindu's" are the Canary's in your coal mine!


Once THE STATE "Machine Guns down all these fucking Dindu's", YOU'LL TAKE THEIR PLACE at the bottom of the financial/societal Totem Pole!


Rather than cheering on the State to destroy these people, we should be cheering on and GUIDING the "Dindu's" in the proper direction to fight OUR common enemy; THE STATE and it's ELITE CLASS that seek to enslave us all for their personal gain...and NO ONE Personifies an Elite, Statist, Psycopath more than HILLARY CLINTON.

FireBrander's picture

This is a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY for Trump to ankle shackle Hillary to Obama's FAILED social/economic policies that Hillary is PROMISING FOUR MORE YEARS OF!


But he won't; he'll come out backing the State/Police 100% and may even call for "Machine gunning down the Dindu's" and leave the question that would move the vote count in his favor locked in his office safe.

"Black Community, are you better off than you were 8 YEARS AGO? Hillary is promising you 4 MORE YEARS OF THE SAME POLICIES that got you where you are now!".

We wouldn't have a police state without dindu nuffin. 90% of dindus vote Democrat. If we killed all our dindus like the kebabs did, they wouldn't be here bitching and we wouldn't be giving up freedom because of muh slavery and muh institutional racism. 

We didn't have a police state when only land owning white men could vote. 

FireBrander's picture

The "Dindu's" put Bush into the White House?

The "Dindu's" gave Bush a Republican controlled Congress?

Bush, and the Republican Congress, defunded and dismantled the Police State?

The "Dindu's" put Obama into the WH whom created the Police State because the Republican Congress is powerless to stop any President from doing as he pleases?


Let me Guess, you're a card carrying R Cult member?

Please explain WHY the dindus are the canary in the coal mine. Why not poor whites,or mexicans or even friggin American indians. There is NO logical reason for blacks to vote for Hillary yet you would be risking your life by going into their neighborhoods and trying to save them from their own stupidity. Hillary will get at least 85% of the black vote,GUARANTEED.

greenskeeper carl's picture

85%? not way, I hear she is already getting 105% of blacks in chicago.

Calmyourself's picture

Hopefully my statement was not taken as cheer leading the State.  They(unions) dumbed down the blacks to be used as cannon fodder and take advantage of the violence they have helped create as the poster above correctly pointed out.  The blacks don't get it and probably never will, they are essentially the brown shirts and we know what happened to them. I have no existential argument with any Black man if he educates himself as to the nature of the state we are natural allies.

The histories of any security establishment always broadens the definition of enemies to the point that just about anyone can fall into their trap.  It serves the need for not just the constant bureaucratic expansion, but to continue to exist past their actual utility (*cough* NATO *cough*).  All bureaucracies tend to take on a life of their own and then dart off into rationalized absurdities.

Warning shot was already fired via the NDAA so if you're "white" and think it's okay for the government to crackdown on others, you're just prepping your own grave.  And don't give me the stupid "who me" look when they cart you off into a boxcar like everyone else.
