TODAY MILWAUKEE…TOMORROW??

LAST SATURDAY A MILWAUKEE POLICE OFFICER SHOT AND KILLED SYLVILLE SMITH AFTER HE POINTED A LOADED WEAPON AT THE OFFICER.MIL RIOTS

SMITH AND ANOTHER MAN WERE STOPPED FOR SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY ON MILWAUKEE’S NORTH SIDE.  SMITH TOOK OFF WITH THE OFFICER IN HOT PURSUIT.  SMITH TURNED AND AIMED THE WEAPON AT THE OFFICER WHO “NEUTRALIZED” THE THREAT.

THE SHOOTING SOON FOLLOWED BY RIOTS, BURNING BUSINESSES AND CLASHES WITH THE MPD.  MUCH OF THE UNREST FUELED BY UNTRUTHFUL AND EXAGGERATED SOCIAL MEDIA MESSAGING ON THE SENDERS FREE PHONE.

THE USUAL PLEAS FROM CITY AND COMMUNITY LEADERS WENT OUT.  ALONG WITH THAT, WI STATE SENATOR-PSYCHOBABBLE (D) PRATTLING ABOUT NOT ENOUGH THIS AND THAT AS WELL AS OPPRESSION BY THE MPD.  REALLY SENATOR.  HAVEN’T WE ALL HAD TOO MUCH OF THAT BALONEY.

ALL THE WHILE OUR PRESIDENT, WHO EMBOLDENS AND EMPOWERS THE blm CROWD REMAINS STRANGELY SILENT.  MAYBE HE DOESN’T HAVE A HI-DEF TV.

IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT THE FATHER OF SLYVILLE, PATRICK SMITH STEPS UP TO THE PLATE AND SAYS THAT HE’S TO BLAME FOR HIS SONS ACTIONS.  HE FURTHER STATED THAT HE FAILED AS A ROLL MODEL AND A PARENT DUE TO HIS FREQUENT INCARCERATIONS.

BY THE WAY THE MPD OFFICER WHO SHOT SLYVILLE IS BLACK.  NOT THAT THAT MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE.  OH YES, AT THE TIME OF THE CONFRONTATION HE WORE A BODY CAMERA.  WONDER WHAT THAT WILL SHOW…HUMMM.

STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP AND WEAR YOUR VEST.
