What in the world is going on in Milwaukee?

A disturbing story from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Shaina Perry remembers the punch to her face, blood streaming from a cut over her eye, her backpack with her asthma inhaler, debit card and cellphone stolen, and then the laughter.

“They just said ‘Oh, black girl bleeds a lot,’ ” said Perry, 22, who was attacked at Kilbourn Reservoir Park over the Fourth of July weekend.

Though Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn noted Tuesday that crime is colorblind, he called the Sunday night looting of a convenience store near the park and beatings of a group of people who had gone to the park disturbing, outrageous and barbaric.

Police would not go quite as far as others in connecting the events; Flynn said several youths “might” be involved in both.

“We’re not going to let any group of individuals terrorize or bully any of our neighborhoods,” Flynn said.

Perry was among several who were injured by a mob they said beat and robbed them and threw full beer bottles while making racial taunts. The injured people were African-American; the attackers were white, witnesses said…

Most of the 11 people who told the Journal Sentinel they were attacked or witnessed the attacks on their friends said that police did not take their complaints seriously. They each said police responded to the scene quickly and tended to the injured, but officers did not take statements from them and told them to leave the area.

Are you outraged that these racist thugs got away with attacking people in public while the police turned a blind eye? Does this prove to you that our society is hopelessly racist?

One thing: I switched around the identifying characteristics of the involved parties. The attackers were African-American and the victims were white.

Does this change your feelings about the incident? If so, why?

    “In Chicago they will not use the words “mob” or “gangs,” …”

    People who change the names of stuff, then act like they’ve solved some kind of problem, are just oxygen thieves.


    But I’d add that Eric Holder and Barack Obama have set the worst possible standards for today’s youth, particularly those who identify with both/either of them on a racial basis. Holder and Obama encourage racialist violence, to be frank.


    Once vacationing for a lengthy stay in a distant state, the empty lot/field beside the condo building was during late night amass with cars, obvious teenager screaming, yelling, kids running all over, cars revving, etc.

    After a few nights of that, I called the local police and complained. When I checked back with them days later, I was told that the teens had been issued citations for curfew violations and their parents “talked to”.

    I don’t know how other locales function but the fact that there are CURFEWS AND THEY ARE ENFORCED does help prevent some of this “teen crime” from happening by identifying the delinquent-prone and criminally-badly-behaved early on.

    It relies on police to do so when parents (obviously) are failing to do so with their own children.

    Unfortunately, other tales I heard from residents of Los Angeles were that they observed PARENTS TAKING THEIR CHILDREN AROUND TO PAINT GRAFFITTI on property, actually driving them and sitting there encouraging them to the crimes involved.

    So the parenting seems to be the hook here. The kids doing these racial/racialist riots and mobbing are certainly NOT being parented well or they’re being encouraged to behave antisocially by bad parenting. Either way, local police should be enforcing curfews and arresting those involved in other crimes.

    What is going on in Milwaukee is the same thing going on all over the country. Successive generations of minority kids being taught that all of their problems are the fault of all white people, combined with the complete destruction of the black family structure, thanks to the left’s insidious welfare programs, and their evil race war tactics.

    The result is not much different than the hate produced in Muslim madrassas. These mobs are the product of racist, leftist, or Islamic indoctrination. In some cases all three, but it isn’t a random phenomena. It has happened simultaneously in multiple cities on the same day.

    Radical leftists are agitating, calling for street violence, protests, and civil unrest that will create chaos. Some radical leftists are virulent racists, like Van Jones, who see violence and chaos as a necessary step in overthrowing this nation. Some have come from our prisons where radical Islamists have focused much of their recruiting. Street gangs make excellent “Brownshirts”, no racial pun intended, and many of their leaders have done time and have a decidedly racist outlook.

    This is a racial intimidation tactic. Expect to see a lot more of it, especially around election time. These thugs know Holder won’t prosecute.

    We have the exact same problem in Chicago (but magnified tenfold). Hundreds of black and hispanic youths going out in groups and committing crimes. When you have 40% unemployment among minority teenagers and combine it with broken families and people who stay in power by telling minorities that their problem is the “rich white people,” problems like these aren’t so surprising. You tell a group of kids that they don’t have the power to take care of themselves, then act surprised when they act immaturely? Give me a break.

    In Chicago they will not use the words “mob” or “gangs,” in relation to these crimes, and the Leftist media is more than happy to go along with them. Tourism is off in serious numbers into the city and the annual Taste Of Chicago was a bust (despite massive police presence which was announced repeatedly to reassure visitors). This problem is going to get worse before it gets better.
