There goes their narrative:
The Milwaukee police officer who fatally shot an armed suspect Saturday is black, sources have told the Journal Sentinel.
City and police officials are expected to speak publicly this afternoon about the shooting and rioting that broke out in the surrounding Sherman Park neighborhood afterward.
Earlier Sunday, city and community leaders gathered to discuss the unrest and the underlying concerns of residents. And Gov. Scott Walker activated the Wisconsin National National Guard to assist the Milwaukee Police Department upon request.
Walker said he put the guard on alert after a request from Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. and conferring with Mayor Tom Barrett and Major Gen. Donald Dunbar.

City leaders pleaded for calm after violence erupted for several hours Saturday night on Milwaukee’s north side following a man’s fatal shooting by police, with the mayor imploring parents of anyone at the scene to “get them home right now” after at least four businesses burned and one officer was hurt.
At a news conference just after midnight, Mayor Tom Barrett said the situation appeared to be calming after a riotous scene in which 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.
The unrest began several hours after a man fleeing police after a traffic stop was shot and killed. 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. Neither his race nor the officer’s was immediately released, nor were they identified.
The shooting was being investigated by the state. The officer was wearing a body camera, Barrett said.
……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.
“This stop took place because two officers … saw suspicious activity,” Barrett said. “There were 23 rounds in that gun that that officer was staring at. I want to make sure we don’t lose any police officers in this community, either.”
And of course the racist ghetto thugs target whites:
The clip shows angry rioters chanting “black power!” before asking “is they white?” as cars slowly drive past.
“Yeah they white!” states someone else, prompting the mob to run towards the vehicle.
“Yeah they white, get their ass!” screams another.
“Hey they beatin’ up every white person!” exclaims another rioter.
“He white – beat his head – bitch!” he adds.
The footage appears to show the mob attacking cars and trying to drag out the drivers.
The footage then cuts to an upper floor window before the person shooting the video states, “I think they just beat some white bitch ass for no reason – they bust open the window.”
Local reporters were also targeted for violent assaults, including a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reporter, who was “thrown to the ground and punched”.
WTMJ was forced to pull its reporters from the ground altogether because of violent threats from the mob.
In another clip, rioters are seen burning down a gas station while chanting “black power!”
That’s ‘black power’: riots, assaults, vandalism, and arson. For some reason, they can’t muster up the power to get a job, stay out of trouble, and take responsibility for themselves and their children. You won’t find those concepts in the ‘troof ta powa’ manual.
When white people are shot by cops, which incidentally happens far more often, no one riots.
Just a few observations:
This is hilarious. This guy has a great sense of humor: Anyway, looks like Milwaukie is another casualty in the new race war.
