More on the DOJ report about BPD. I'm sure this is all easily explainable if put in context.

No talk yet of events in Milwaukee yesterday? I actually know the area of town well that it happened in. Having spent a couple of days in the park near the gas station that burned and having walked down the streets most of the people there are nice and friendly. However when the sun goes down... Its a whole different area. Its sad as this is/was a quite nice and historic part of town. Huge old houses, great parks, etc.
And the incident that sparked all the rioting is crazy. 2 men running and wont stop under orders after a traffic stop. The man shot had a weapon with 22 rounds in it and 500 rounds in the trunk. This was after 10 shootings overnight in the area. No idea what to do anymore.

Police Officer that shot the fleeing felon, is a black Officer, so this incident won't have much legs.

But the protesters/rioting thieves had a good time and proved their point ( I guess ).

Sylville Smith's ( the deceased ) Dad speaks out and makes some sense,

http://fox6now.com/2016/08/14/father-of-23-year-old-man-shot-killed-by-police-near-44th-auer-identifies-him-as-sylville-smith/

also,

MILWAUKEE -- The father of a man shot and killed by a Milwaukee police officer Saturday afternoon, August 13th has identified him as 23-year-old Sylville Smith, as did Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn Sunday afternoon.

Court records show in February of 2015, Smith was charged with one felony count of first degree recklessly endangering safety and one misdemeanor count of possession of THC. The charges were dismissed by prosecutors in November.

In August of 2015, Smith was charged with felony intimidation of a witness/person charged/felony. That charge was dismissed by prosecutors in September.

In July of 2014, Smith was charged with carrying a concealed weapon -- a misdemeanor charge. He pleaded guilty in November, and was sentenced to serve one day in the House of Correction.

In July of 2013, Smith was charged with felony retail theft -- intentionally taking $500 to $5,000 as party to a crime. Prosecutors dismissed the charge in October.


This kid must have had lawyers that are better than Johnnie Cochran.

He makes an interesting point about guns being legal actually hurting the black community. NRA talks about guns being more prevelant keeps you safe, but if you're carrying (even legally) the cops have a built in excuse to shoot, and no one will question.

That is a familar story around Milwaukee lately. There was a rash of car thefts and joyrides this spring, only to find out that individuals involved had been arrested multiple times and released. The jails are full and often there are little reprocussions for any crime short of murder. Created a tense moment between judges and police when the police chief called out judges who werent putting habitual offenders behind bars.

Are those actually BLM? or did someone just label them as BLM? If it really is BLM, theyre hurting their own cause.

As has been said, BLM does not have dues or membership cards. It's doubtful that any BLM "leaders" like DeRay or Johnetta, or the "Mothers of the Movement" participated in these riots. Oh, excuse me, these are protests, not riots, they are a special form of protest marked by arson, theft, and beating up white people.

But it's obviously very likely that those that did participate in the riots are full fledged BLM supporters. Very few if any of the rioters do not support the BLM aims.

Here are BLM leader DeRay's view of the "protests" , and the "state-sanctioned violence" ( as he terms it ) that led to the protests,

And here is Sylville Smith, the victim this time of "state sanctioned violence",

Of course they have no membership cards, my point was that just because they're black you can't assume they're real BLM- probably just thugs/angry people who want to riot.

No true BLM!
and and this re-tweet from one of the BLM founders, as you can see they totally condemn the violence icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
