Milwaukee is the latest in the Black Lives Matter destructiveness

In a pattern that’s become all too familiar around the nation, the death of a black man at the hands of a police officer has sparked riots. This time it’s in Milwaukee.

Here’s a lengthy article on the subject in the local Milwaukee paper, the Journal Sentinel. The article manages to impart a great deal of information and offer a great many quotes without ever mentioning two salient facts: that the man who was shot was black, and that the police officer who shot him was also black.

The first fact is very strongly implied by the Journal Sentinel article’s content. But the second fact could not possibly be deduced from anything in that article.

And here we have a ghastly quote from the sister of the deceased man (his name was Sylville Smith and hers is Kimberly Neal), a quote that was apparently truncated by CNN but appears in a more complete version in a video:

CNN did its best to attribute a peaceful element to the protests on Monday morning by featuring one of Smith’s sisters calling for peace. “Don’t bring that violence here,” said Kimberly Neal, one of Smith’s sisters.

Despite CNN’s selective editing, Neal was not calling for peace — she was calling for peace in black neighborhoods and requesting that rioters instead target the white community for violence. “Burning down sh*t ain’t going to help nothing,” she continued. “Y’all burning down sh*t we need in our community. Take that sh*t to the suburbs. Burn that sh*t down. We need our weave.”

On the other hand, Smith’s father offered a rambling speech in which he alternately blamed lack of gun control (he seems to be against the Second Amendment) and some vague and powerful “they,” but he also blamed himself and the poor example he set for his son:

I had to blame myself for a lot of things too because your hero is your dad and I played a very big part in my family’s role model for them. Being on the street, doing things of the street life: Entertaining, drug dealing and pimping and they’re looking at their dad like ‘he’s doing all these things.’ I got out of jail two months ago, but I’ve been going back and forth in jail and they see those things so I’d like to apologize to my kids because this is the role model they look up to. When they see the wrong role model, this is what you get.

Can’t argue with that part.

Here’s more background as to why the officer stopped Smith and why Smith was shot:

The incident started Saturday afternoon when two officers stopped two people who were in a car in the north side, according to the Milwaukee Police Department.

“I was advised it was a suspicious stop. This vehicle was behaving in a suspicious manner. It’s a rental car as it turns out. We’ve not ascertained its status as to whether or not it was lawfully rented or stolen,” Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn said Sunday afternoon.

Shortly after, both car occupants fled on foot as officers pursued them, police said.

During the chase, an officer shot one of the two — 23-year-old Sylville Smith, who was armed with a handgun, according to authorities.

“He (officer) ordered that individual to drop his gun, the individual did not drop his gun,” Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said. “He had the gun with him and the officer fired several times.”

Smith at the scene. It’s unclear whether the second occupant of the car is in police custody.

Smith was shot twice — in the arm and chest, the mayor said. His handgun was stolen during a burglary in Waukesha in March, according to police.

Family members told FOX6 News Smith leaves behind a son and daughter.

“The victim of that burglary reported 500 rounds of ammunition were also stolen with the handgun,” police said in a statement.

The officer was wearing a body camera at the time. There were 23 rounds in Smith’s gun. Smith had a history of dismissed charges against him for a number of offenses, as well as a guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of carrying a concealed weapon.

None of these facts seem to matter to the rioters.

    what they didnt report is how they started pulling whites out of cars and attacking them… but thats not the narrative, is it?

    “Hey, they beating up every white person!” one rioter can be heard screaming.

    The rioters can also be heard yelling, “Yeah, they white, get their ass,” and, “He white, beat his head, bitch!”

    “The rich people got all this money and they not like, you know, tryin’ give us none.”… given that the finances for black families in progressive wisconsin, the home of woodrow wilson and black laws that tarnished america, it makes sense…

    What we are seeing in Milwaukee is community organizing at its finest. That’s why the Black Lives Matter list of demands sounds like the Communist Manifesto. The parents and family members of young men who are dead because of a policeman’s bullet are being used by the Left to advance their hateful, socialist agenda.

    And the opportunistic community organizers are celebrated at the Democratic National Convention and hosted by our President and Attorney General at the White House.

    Clearly, the facts of the actual shooting are meaningless. If anyone cared about the actual reality behind most of these officer-involved shootings, then the fictional “hands-up, don’t shoot” protests that continue at the site of the Michael Brown incident in Ferguson. MO would be mocked as the farce they are.

    they are waiting for a bus that white folk, spanish folk and asian folk dont wait for…

    EXCLUSIVE – New Black Panther Leader on Milwaukee: This Is A War

    “The people against terrorism, and tyranny in their community is not a civil war. When you are speaking about civil war, you are talking about a country fighting against a country. This is oppressed people fighting against a racist, white supremacist police system. Which is meant to oppress a certain group of people. More than likely black people and poor people around the country.”

    “What you see is people lashing out and fighting against the system. As it is said in the Second Amendment, you know. So this is not new. The people in this country have always defended themselves against tyranny. So I can’t liken this to a civil war. No it’s not. Is it a war? Yes, it is. It’s a war against black people because we’re the ones being murdered. We’re the ones being killed. So there’s been a war against us. But is it a civil war? I can’t say that that’s the case.” Omowale


    Omowale reacted: “You say the man was running. If he’s running, then most definitely he is running in the opposite direction away from the police officer. Now could have gotten shot in the chest? Now that is possible because he could have turned in which direction he needed to go.”

    “With a gun, don’t forget,” I pointed out. “And the police did tell him to put the gun down.”

    “You are only telling me the police’s version,” Omowale retorted. “See the other man is dead. He can’t give his version.”

    He continued: “We have seen so many times where police officers have made statements but yet cameras have come out to catch them in their lies. So it’s gotten to the point where America does not believe when a police officer says that someone turned toward them with a gun. And again having a gun does not justify killing someone.”

    The Tragedy of White Supremacy

    White supremacy is a lover of White power, the power that must attend bigotry if it is to be called racism. White supremacy is at the core. Perhaps it is the core of this nation, entangled, as it were, and controlled by, capitalism. The White supremacist needs money in order to maintain his or her power, and will denigrate, demoralize and use anybody it can in keeping things “in order.”

    White supremacy is at the core of the police problem in this nation. One can almost feel sorry for White police officers that are being manipulated by a system that has a vested interest in keeping things just as they are. White supremacists created a chasm between working White and enslaved Black people decades ago. They created the divide because together, Blacks and Whites realized that the White supremacists were keeping all of them oppressed.

    In order to maintain a system where they, the White supremacists, could continue to amass as much money as possible, while paying laborers as little as possible, they created a system where White people were elevated to a place of superiority over Blacks. White people, now elevated, were authorized to “keep the Blacks in line.”

    Poor Whites were the ones deputized to catch run-away slaves, and they were authorized to shoot first and ask questions later. Segregation laws made it legal for Black people to be hunted down by law enforcement officers and these wannabe officers as well. They could and did shoot and kill Black people at will, never fearing consequences.

    They were doing it, however, while not having a life that was much better than that of the Black people they hunted and killed.

    The followers of Donald Trump are largely, if the pundits are to be believed, “White, male, blue collar workers.” That means they are White people with no more money than Blacks. They have no jobs, or jobs where they cannot make enough money to support themselves and their families. They are living the lives that Black people in this country have lived for a long time and that Black people know well.

    White supremacy, fed by capitalism, greed, and corruption has caused the decimation of the middle class, something White blue-collar workers could always depend on, even when the jobs they held were made inaccessible for Black people. Globalization has caused the world to open and good jobs of the United States have been outsourced.


    if this is the newspaper, and this is their version of history, no wonder… no wonder at all…

    the rest of the article goes on about Trump, not democrats and half century of their policies from bull connors, dogs, hoses, segregation, end of the black family, abortion on demand, state control of schools driving down literacy, and behavior issues..

    just read walter williams talk about these changes, and it would be in stark contrast of this kind of press, which seeks to incite riot… but it took over 100 years of dems actions on blacks to get them to do this, they were too smart in the 1960s and 1970s… now they are disenfranchised, and all that by the same people, that round two is upon us

    is it also no wonder that china and russia are preparing for a fight? after all, when the US civil war was going on, they did not exist yet and could not take advantage of such, and you can be sure they are not going to miss this party they worked so hard to foment by the anniversary of their birth

  7. physicsguy Says:

    “None of these facts seem to matter to the rioters.”

    Nor to most of the media.

  8. Geoffrey Britain Says:

    This isn’t about the cops shooting blacks, this is about the acquisition of power and ‘reparations’, i.e. takin from whitey. This is about tribal dominance masquerading as minority rights.

    The blacks sincerely thinking that the cops are targeting blacks are the racial grievance activist’s “useful idiots”.

    As, the 18+ TRILLION in reparations paid since the “War on Poverty” began is clearly insufficient, no amount will ever be enough.

    Reason is useless in persuasion, when emotion is the originating rationale.

    Any black person who agrees that America is inherently racist, should be given a million tax free dollars, have their citizenship revoked and flown to Africa. Let them enjoy their black privilege.

  9. j e Says:

    To the members of the Afro-fascist cult calling itself BLM and all their enablers in the MSM and the Democratic Party, nothing could be more irrelevant than facts, evidence, and logical analysis.

  10. Daniel in Brookline Says:

    I do hope the followers of BLM enjoy the prospect of President Donald J. Trump.

    If they continue as they are, they will drive voters right into Trump’s arms.

    Cornhead: My understanding is Marquette U is pretty doggone leftist. So let it reap the consequences.
    I who helped integrate the Univ of Va hospital back in the day, under the theory all pain hurts and all blood is red, am becoming increasingly racist. There is no workable way out except violence, suppressive and brutal violence. $18 Trillion in the fabled War on Poverty has not made things better, but worse.
    The black underclass is a cancer. We must stop feeding it, and excise it to the extent possible.

    “EXCLUSIVE – New Black Panther Leader on Milwaukee: This Is A War”

    There comes a time when you should take them at their word; be it the NBP or ISIS.

    Glad to see that Gov Walker wasted no time in calling out the National Guard; too bad he didn’t actually deploy them after the first nigh–or maybe he did over in the suburbs that the sister is referring to. You know, where the tax paying citizens are.

  13. Frog Says:

    Wonder what the orders to the National Guard are. Shoot the arsonists and looters? Or what? Seriously.

  14. parker Says:

    This is deja vu. The urban riots of the 60s (not justified but understandable) and the Rodney King riots, and now the marxist inspired BLM riots. This too shall pass.

  15. Ray Says:

    What is funny about this is that for every black killed by a cop over 70 are killed by other blacks. Evidently when blacks are killed by blacks those lives don’t matter.

  16. Wilhelmina Says:

    Back in the late ’70s, I was a MU nursing student. We were sent routinely into these neighborhoods on our visiting nurse rotation. I would think this would be impossible now. For the OB rotation, I was at a newer hospital on the north side, a beautiful facility. “Unwed, Keeping” was said over and over, every day, in the morning report on the patients. This is what has blossomed from that. By the way, the hospital was closed about 10 yrs ago after 100 million in losses, unpaid bills and charity. A real tragedy for the community, but part of the larger blight.

  17. Big Maq Says:

    If BLM is behind the push for this particular riot, will have to start calling them BLDM.

    Never understood how a group of people could be so manipulated towards a destructive response to conflated real and perceived grievances.

    …Until this election cycle.

    A continuance of this madness will result in having to do things you do not want to do and never dreamed or imagined you’d do or have to do.

    The flames may rise high enough that those ultimately responsible for this insanity are also consumed.

    Not that it will save us, but: Justice.

  20. Milwaukee Says:

    Sometimes, things really are worse than they seem. Milwaukee has an overabundance of problems. Put “infant mortality rate, blacks, milwaukee” into your favorite Internet browser. Milwaukee had infant mortality rates worse than Libya or Cuba or the Ukraine. Blacks tend to get many more abortions than Whites, and subsequent pregnancies ending early with low-birth weight babies, and higher infant mortality results. But that’s not all. A recent book entitled “Eviction” focused on how poor peoples lives are impacted by eviction, and was centered in Milwaukee. Plenty of slum lords, Black and White, to prey upon the poor, keeping them poor and oppressed.

    I was in Milwaukee 6-8 years ago. At the time the local technical college had the better nursing program than the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Seems the students at UWM were getting good grades in nursing classes but flunking the nursing boards, and the state didn’t approve. Imagine the disappointment of getting passing grades but not passing the state boards. But once students are admitted in affirmative action, grade inflation must follow.

    Milwaukee is the heart of a majority-minority congressional district. They will return a leftist/socialist who will never run for or win a state wide office.

    The posted exit for the UW-Milwaukee was a couple of miles out of the way. It lead the visitor through more pleasant neighborhoods than the most direct exit.

  21. Milwaukee Says:

    Is there racism in Milwaukee and Wisconsin? Sure. Take a little/big thing, like the state basketball championships. For years the 8 teams in each division, boys and girls, were seeded alphabetically. That way, all the schools named Milwaukee, such as Milwaukee — and Milwaukee xxx and Milwaukee *** were all in the same side of the bracket, and at most one of them would be in the final game.

    Cornhead “These riots were only 3-4 miles from Marquette University.”
    27th Street is even closer, and that is a very bad neighborhood, full of violent, criminal blacks, the sorts who feel that a racial injustice has been done when a white janitor uses a gun to defend himself from vicious black thugs.

  25. pst314 Says:

    “Plenty of slum lords, Black and White, to prey upon the poor, keeping them poor and oppressed.”
    Or maybe most of these poor oppressed blacks are just bad tenants. After all, landlords love tenants who pay their rent and refrain from damaging the property.

  26. Eric R. Says:

    The goal of BLM and the Democrats is to force racial violence on such a massive scale (this time, with some whites being pushed to shoot back, more out of fear than disgust or anger), that they can shut down the government, round up Republicans, shut down opposition media (what little there is) and rule the country as an out-and-out Marxist dictatorship.

    Yes, the leftist propaganda media will laugh at what I wrote above, and call me crazy (Marxists have a long and ignoble history of this) right up until the time it happens — and then they will praise the Democratic President who does this.

    I figure there are at least four ways of dealing with the fact that the guy was armed:
    1. Not know.
    2. Heard the reports but don’t believe.
    3. Know but don’t care.
    4. Know, believe on a rational level, but it’s not “their truth”, which prevails.

    Only the first is susceptible to correction and then some unknown proportion of the newly-informed fall into one of the next three.

    IOW, hopeless.

  33. kevino Says:

    Justice and fairness are rejected in favor of tribal conflict. The backstory to all of this is to whip up the “Black Community” to destroy the GOP in the Fall elections. But the fact that such a strategy exists and the fact that it can be achieved in this way are horrifying. Facts don’t matter any more. BLM was founded on a lie (“Hands up; don’t shoot”) and fueled by rage. And the hate mongers are succeeding.

    What can be done to stop the hate?

    I keep thinking of Golda Meir’s famous quote: “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” If Black lives matter, then what can anyone do to get black parents to love, protect, and nurture their children? Is Sylville Smith the best that we can do? What can we do to prevent the massive amount of black-on-black crime? Well, Kimberly Neal is apparently proposing more black-on-white crime, instead.

    We live in a world where rational thought has no value. It’s insanity and childishness and rage on a massive scale. I don’t think that we, as a society, are going to make it. I don’t see a way forward.

  35. huxley Says:

    BLM is not just a fringe black organization with a dishonest narrative. It has been fashioned into the latest standard bearer for the leftist/progressive movement, much as Occupy Wall St was four years ago.

    Blacks will remain the face of BLM for obvious reasons, but behind them the Bill Ayers crew of radicals are organizing and plotting to disrupt society then grab whatever power they can.

  36. huxley Says:

    Black Lives Matter is not about black lives or truth or improving society.

    Black Lives Matter is about power.

    Communist group members go to Milwaukee to help ‘revolution’

    A Chicago-based communist revolutionary group blamed by Milwaukee’s police chief for stoking a second day of violence said that some of its members did go there to “support a revolution” but didn’t set out to cause trouble.

    Police chief Ed Flynn said members of a Chicago chapter of the Revolutionary Communist Party turned what had been a peaceful night into a tense one by leading marchers down several blocks at around 11:30 p.m. TV footage showed a small group of protesters walking or running through the streets, sometimes toppling orange construction barriers.

    “The (communist group) showed up, and actually they’re the ones who started to cause problems,” Flynn said at a news conference Monday.

  39. Artfldgr Says:

    That group released a statement later Monday referring to the protests as a “righteous rebellion.”

    “This system sees police wantonly murdering people as part of the normal order of things,” Dix said. But he added that people take issue with protests in response to those killings. His group advocates dismantling the police.


    and go to what? concealed carry and personal justice?
    [it takes a special kind of lunatic to want no police at all as a way to prevent crime. if he thinks the police shoot lots of african americans, he will be surprised that once the police are gone, shooting them would be a easy solution to a social problem (a la communism).

    or to quote the soviets:
    No man, no problem


    Dix repeatedly said party members are seeking to “dismantle” police and other government systems. The group is distinct from the Communist Party of the USA.


    Sure, lets do that Dix, can i have the nuclear weapons, since no one is guarding them, or doing much with them…


    Asked about the violent conduct of some protesters, Dix referred to Smith’s killing and other officer-involved deaths of black men in Milwaukee and elsewhere as the real problem.


    i guess the shooting of that poor white boy in the neck for suppoorting blacks in the protest, is not the issue. the parents will be happy to hear it.

    Yes. I have had friends who were landlords, and stories they tell are amazing. Like the family that never took out the trash. They just opened the basement door and threw the trash down. However, it is a vicious cycle, and I don’t know, but I suspect once cycling through eviction it becomes easier to be jaded and turn into a bad tenant. The original was meant as a laugh line, but ‘some people are born bad tenants, some achieve bad tenant status, and others have bad tenant status thrust upon them’. Many families are one or two paychecks from being on the streets.

    There are places who will refuse a lease to a person who has been recently evicted. What is left is less desirable, and more likely to be populated with others, which makes things worse. I dunno, how do we stop the cycle, and get people going straight? If they even want to get out of the cycle?

  43. Joe Mack Says:

    When white America stops caring, like Olympic synchronized swimming level of caring, no major news outlets, will Black Lives matter or go away?
    Without attention, buh bye! or burn some suburbs and get shot. We don’t care.

  44. Lizzy Says:

    “This isn’t about the cops shooting blacks, this is about the acquisition of power and ‘reparations’…”

    Yes, power. It’s about nationalizing the police, as the DoJ inserts itself indefinitely into the police of each of these cities, transferring management of local policing to to DC.

    There’s a reason Soros and many of the big Democrat funders are #BLM, and it has nothing to do with caring for the black residents of Ferguson, Baltimore, and Milwaukee. As always, follow the money…

    Exit question: If #BLM is about reparations for America’s history of slavery, and present-day US police brutality, then why are there #BLM groups agitatiing in Canada & France?

  45. Ray Says:

    Fear of blacks is well founded. They commit a hugely disproportionate amount of crime. They are about 12% of the population but commit over 50% of the murders. See the link.

  46. Ymarsakar Says:

    I don’t care whether evil comes from poor blacks or rich police authorities. Destroy evil and kill it. Solution is pretty simple.
