I wanted to start off this story by saying innocent people do not flee the scene.
The Democrat sympathy and empathy for thuggery has paid dividends again. Milwaukee burned on Saturday night because police shot an armed thug who allegedly refused to put down his gun. We do not know the details until the body camera video has been published.
The guy had a criminal record but never mind all that, the residents turned out to burn and loot their town with no details. This has to stop and this President who was supposed to unite us has done nothing but divide us. We hear from some of the citizens that racism abounds in the city but using that excuse to give this victim a pass on his actions is never the solution.
Oh yeah, Hillary Clinton made clear who she stands with at her convention. Relatives of thugs on the stage and an order that no law enforcement wear uniforms in the hall. You want four more years of riots, fires, lootings and deaths, she is your candidate.

Angry crowds took to the streets in Milwaukee on Saturday night to protest the shooting death of an armed man by a police officer hours earlier.
Protesters burned several stores and threw rocks at police in the city’s north side, leaving one officer injured. Smoke and orange flames filled the night sky.
The incident started Saturday afternoon when two officers stopped two people who were in a car in the north side, according to the Milwaukee Police Department.
Shortly after, both car occupants fled on foot as officers pursued them, police said.
During the chase, an officer shot one of the two — a 23-year-old man who was armed with a handgun, according to authorities.
“He (officer) ordered that individual to drop his gun, the individual did not drop his gun,” Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said. “He had the gun with him and the officer fired several times.”
The man died at the scene. It’s unclear whether the second occupant of the car is in police custody.
Here is a video report of what happened in Milwaukee during the riots on Saturday night:
I’m not saying this cop is right or wrong and you can’t make an opinion until you know details. But people need to start taking responsibility for the actions you commit! Seriously, we live in a world where people are constantly saying “Screw the police,” because they get caught for breaking the law. If you don’t want encounters with the police, don’t break the law and don’t hang out with people who break the law. Simple.

We need a president in office who is actually going to back the police up and then people need to start being arrested who are rioting like this. Being violent against police because they are police IS a hate crime. So why aren’t we treating it like one?
