Another Fatal Police Shooting Sparks Riots In Milwaukee..

MILWAUKEE — An uneasy calm blanketed the city of Milwaukee Sunday morning after a night of violence that saw businesses burn, cars overturned, windows shattered, and according to reports police were fired upon and squad cars destroyed. Milwaukee is no stranger to minority uprising, Milwaukee was once one of the most segregated cities in the nation.  On July 30, 1967, riots broke out in Milwaukee after police attempted to stop fights at a downtown entertainment spot. Mayor Henry Maier declared a state of emergency and asked the governor to call out the National Guard. Eight days later, four people were dead and more than 1,500 had been arrested. That event was a turning point in the civil rights movement according to www.wisconsinhistory.org.

Protesters and officers continued to clash throughout the night after a Milwaukee police officer shot and killed an armed suspect during a foot chase. After a long confrontation with officers, police reported that a gas station was set on fire, and police said firefighters initially could not get close to the blaze because of gunshots.

Amateur  footage capture’s what appears to be a shoot out between police and rioters. 

From on the Scene,  an Angry Crowd in Milwaukee rioted after police shot and killed a 23 yr old armed man.


Police said an angry crowd hit one officer in the head with a brick, set fires and shot guns near in the clashes on the city’s North Side. Officers decked out in riot gear made at least three arrests as firefighters rushed to put out the blazes. The uproar followed a traffic stop and chase around 3:30 p.m. accordingto Milwaukee police. The 23-year-old man killed by police and another suspect ditched a car and ran after the stop at N. 44th St. and W. Auer Ave, investigators said.

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 businesses that burned included a BMO Harris branch, a BP gas station, an O’Reilly Auto Parts store and a beauty supply store. Firefighters held back from the gas station blaze because of gunfire.

Barrett said the officer was wearing a body camera. Officers captured the other suspect after the shooting, according to police.

Over 100 people demonstrated near the scene of the shooting in protests that started out peaceful, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. The protest devolved even after a woman who identified herself as a family member of the dead man asked everyone to leave.

Violence erupted for several hours Saturday night, City leaders pleaded for calm after Milwaukee’s north side following a man’s fatal shooting by police earlier in the day, with the mayor imploring parents of anyone at the scene to “get them home right now”  this, after at least four local businesses were burned and one officer had already been hurt.

Mayor Tom Barrett said as many as 100 protesters skirmished with police, torching a squad car and tossing a brick through the window of another. Police mounted at least two efforts to push the protesters out of an intersection at the heart of the violence.

Police said the man was armed, but it wasn’t clear whether he was pointing the gun or aiming it at officers. Barrett said the man was hit twice, in the chest and arm.

The shooting was being investigated by the state. The officer was wearing a body camera, Barrett said.

At least three people were arrested in an uprising that Barrett said was driven by social media messages instructing people to congregate in the area.

“We have to have calm,” Barrett said at the news conference.

“There are a lot of really good people who live in this neighbourhood.”

Milwaukee Common Council President Ashanti Hamilton echoed Barrett’s plea for help restoring order.

“We understand the frustration people feel with the police community nationally…We have to go through the process of finding justice, but we have to be able to restore order to these neighbourhoods,” Hamilton said. “Please participate in restoring order to these neighbourhoods.”

Barrett said the 23-year-old man who died was stopped by police for “suspicious activity.” Police said earlier that he was carrying a gun that had been stolen in a March burglary in suburban Waukesha.

Oregon Man Finds Porta-Potty Filled to the Brim With Marijuana

An Oregon man made quite the discovery this week when he found a massive marijuana crop stashed inside a porta-potty at a local park.

The unidentified man was walking his dog at a Rogue River park when he made the shocking discovery in the portable bathroom. Instead of leaving it alone or cashing in, the man reported the find to the police, who have stated it is the largest seizure of the plant that their department has ever made.

A man walking his dog through Anna Classick Park this morning just before 9am, stopped to use the Porta-Potty next to the tennis courts…and found this. Got marijuana? We Do!” Rogue River Police wrote on their Facebook page on Wednesday, with five photos of the weed.

One helpful resident offered to help the department out, commenting on their post that she specializes “in weed eradication and i can help make it disappear as a service to the community.”

The outdoor toilet had reportedly been checked by a public works employee three hours prior to the weed discovery, and was empty at the time. There were also people playing tennis nearby, though they told police that they did not see anything suspicious.

On Thursday morning, Chief Ken Lewis stated that the police still do not know how the marijuana ended up in the potty, or why. He floated theories from the toilet being a pick up point for a sale to a disgruntled citizen protesting all the marijuana grows in the area.

In a sad sight for stoners everywhere, the department also updated their page with the status of the weed in the mid-afternoon.

“Well, all good things must come to an end, and this is how the marijuana from yesterday’s “The Fresh Connection” case ended up this morning after being run through the city’s wood chipper. It is now green mulch. Let’s just hope we don’t get some suspicious looking green plants coming up through the ground next year at the city’s Public Works yard,” the department wrote, including photos of the destroyed plants.

Oregon was the first state to decriminalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana, as well as one of the first to legalize it for medicinal purposes. In 2015, the state declared marijuana sales legal to recreational users from dispensaries.

Cultivation of marijuana for non-medical purposes has been legal in the state since 2014.

Justice Department: Baltimore Police Fail At Nearly Everything

An investigation released by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) today reported that the Baltimore Police (BPD) failed at doing nearly everything.

The DOJ found major issues in BPD’s training, policy guidance, and methods of holding officers accountable for misconduct and even equipping officers.

BPD report

Sadly, no one is likely to be held accountable for this lack of oversight and negligence.

This, despite the DOJ report stating, “BPD ENGAGES IN A PATTERN OR PRACTICE OF CONDUCT THAT VIOLATES THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION AND LAWS, AND CONDUCT THAT RAISES SERIOUS CONCERNS.”

That line in the report was actually written in all caps.

The report is not just about the Freddie Gray case that the Baltimore PD had been facing charges in. It is a review of the entire department itself, and how the officers uphold themselves on the field.

The report finds issues with how officers treat everyone in Baltimore.

The BPD makes unconstitutional stops, searches, and arrests with poor oversight. Officers escalate encounters, resulting in excessive use of force, and some display open racial discrimination against black Americans. If you are mentally handicapped, look out, these officers use an unreasonable amount of force and fail to make reasonable modifications when interacting with people with mental disabilities.

Baltimore PD doesn’t like free speech, they unlawfully detain and harass individuals who speak out, and many times BPD has assaulted citizens that participate in protected free speech – especially citizens who seek to record police behaviors and actions towards the public.

Here’s an excerpt from the shocking report by the Department of Justice.

“The pattern or practice occurs as a result of systemic deficiencies at BPD. The agency fails to provide officers with sufficient policy guidance and training; fails
to collect and analyze data regarding officers’ activities; and fails to hold officers accountable for misconduct. BPD also fails to equip officers with the necessary equipment and resources they need to police safely, constitutionally, and effectively. Each of these systemic deficiencies contributes to the constitutional  and statutory violations we observed.”

Of course, the federal government’s motives in criticizing city police forces may not be pure. It is well documented that the globalists want to federalize local police forces. The federal government has provided military-grade weaponry to local police forces in part for that reason.

To truly reform the police, We Are Change has provided a guide on how to do so. It starts with you taking over local government.

Austin Police Officer Caught on Camera Kicking Drunk Woman

In a video that is quickly going viral, an Austin police department officer Michael Wade shows blatant disregard for safety and human dignity.

Officer Wade shockingly kicks a drunk woman that is wandering around downtown Austin, Texas.

The incident occurred on Sunday, August 7th, 2016, around 2:35 a.m. The video has been spread by the Peaceful Streets Project, a group that has been documenting Austin PD’s weekend ritual of clearing drunken pedestrians from the street using horse mounted officers, resulting in dozens of injuries.

An unknown woman was a part of that crowd Sunday. When she was inches away from the curb, she was assaulted by officer Michael Wade, badge #6699.

This type of behavior by officer Wade not only reflects back on him and the Austin PD, but on the growing problem of police feeling they are above the law and not prosecutable for their offenses. This is a prime example of police brutality defined as unnecessary use of force. This woman was neither a threat nor a problem for law enforcement when this officer decided to kick her out of the way.

This abuse is an insult to all those who do wear their badge with integrity, respect, and dignity. Put it bluntly, this is unjustifiable assault — this woman did nothing to deserve this, and this officer should be fired immediately. A suspension with pay is laughable when this is clear on camera — not much of an investigation needs to ensue as officer Wade’s clear display of disgust is captured as he kicks her riding on his horse, then continues down the street.

The Peaceful Streets Project has asked journalists and concerned citizens alike to report this incident and to contact the Austin Police Department, Office of Police Monitor, and Austin Mayor Steven Adler to inquire as to whether they find this type of behavior appropriate for a law enforcement officer whose job is to serve and protect.

In this instance, no one was served and no one was protected. The only thing served was a kick directly to a drunk woman, potentially in the face. A possible tourist, a possible pregnant woman, potentially kicked in the face. Is this the type of action that Austin wants to be known for? Come to Austin let our police kick you in the face at your local night out at one of our fancy clubs after curfew.

This type of misconduct and display of carelessness affects everyone. This is criminal. A badge is not a license to commit crime.
