Rioting Erupts in Wisconsin After Black Police Officer Cleared in Use-of-Force Incident by Prosecutor

Rioting has exploded in the area of Milwaukee, Wisconsin after a County District Attorney John Chisholm cleared a local police officer in a use-of-force incident in January in which a black teenager was shot. Joseph Mensah, who himself is black, was forced to shoot 17-year old Alvin Cole after he fired a shot with a stolen gun and refused to drop the weapon.

Chisholm concluded that the shooting of the armed suspect was lawful and reasonable. “He did not surrender the weapon and was fired upon by Officer Mensah causing his death,” Chisholm wrote. “There is sufficient evidence that Officer Mensah had an actual subjective belief that deadly force was necessary and that belief was objectively reasonable.” Members of the Wisconsin National Guard had been mobilized to Wauwatosa in advance of the prosecutor’s charging decision. Left-wing mobs had previously threatened Officer Mensa at his own home.

Rioting exploded almost immediately in the Milwaukee metro area after the announcement from Chisholm. Vandals were seen openly attacking the homes of civilians, smashing their windows as some sort of political statement.

Rioters were seen attacking members of the media seeking to document their criminal activities.

At least one man was seen brandishing a gun at a Wauwatosa riot event as police instructed the unruly mob to disperse.

At least one business was left totally ransacked and looted by criminal rioters.

One Wauwatosa resident sought to negotiate with the infuriated mob, trying to deter them from property crimes by informing them that the neighborhood they were destroying was inhabited by Democrats. They don’t seem to care, and continued to attack people’s homes until police forcefully dispersed the riot formation.

The riot and protest left is now seriously pushing their luck, just weeks away from a presidential election as they victimize people in one of the most crucial swing states in the country.
