According to Police, an 18-year-old man was seriously injured and shot at a Milwaukee protest on Sunday. The police officers had to retrieve the man using an armored vehicle and took him to the hospital, as tense fights and huge brawls erupted on the 2nd night of this ugly protest.

Almost 20 police officers were dressed in riot gear and confronted about 150 people who decided to block an intersection near the fatal shooting Saturday afternoon. As the police tried to evacuate everyone from the intersection they did not receive a warm welcome.

According to Fox News, ” After watching the officer’s body camera footage, Flynn said the entire episode took about 25 seconds, from the start of the traffic stop until shots were fired. He said Smith ran “a few dozen feet” and turned toward the officer while holding a gun.”

Is not sad that we live in a time where people destroy their own city after someone breaks the law and threatens the life of those who vow to keep us safe. I find it very interesting that a whole city will erupt in flames after a proven criminal commits a crime and dies at the hand of a policeman protecting his own life, but will turn their head the second a black-on-black crime happens.
