NavyJack – Black Lives Matter Strikes Again: The Milwaukee Riots (Updated 08/15/2016 – A Second Night of Violence)

Saturday night’s Black Lives Matter riots began when a police officer pulled over a car with two men inside. The two men left the vehicle and attempted to run. A police chase ensued on foot. At some point during the pursuit, police fired shots at one of the men. The unidentified 23-year-old suspect was pronounced dead.  He was in possession of a stolen handgun according to police spokesman Capt. Mark Stanmeyer.

Rioters set several businesses on fire, including a bank and a gas station. Firemen responding to the scene hesitated to enter the area to put down the fires without police protection. There were numerous reports that police officers barricaded themselves inside the 7th district police station to escape the mayhem.


Like the riots in Ferguson, MO, these riots have targeted local businesses. For the most part, these businesses were caught by surprise and the police were incapable or unwilling to gain control before several of building were damaged or destroyed.  The businesses include a BP Gas Station, the Jet Beauty Supply Store, O’Reilly Auto Parts and BMO Harris Bank. When the gas station was set ablaze, there were three people in the building. They all managed to escape without injury.


Assistant Police Chief James Harpole said “at least 200 people had gathered at the uprising. He said there were multiple gunshots over the course of the evening”.

Officers got in their cars to leave at one point, and some in the crowd started smashing the windows of a squad car and another vehicle, which was set on fire.  Police reported that an officer was hit in the head with a brick that was thrown through a squad car window. Police said the officer was being treated at a hospital. As officers returned to the scene, this time in riot gear, gunshots could be heard.  The shots were fired by someone in the crowd.

The Black Lives Matter movement is just one of the Social Movements involved with the destabilization of the United States of America. Others include La Raza, The Revolutionary Communist Party, the World Workers Party, the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS and the Islamic Jihadist movements.

Update 08/15/2016 – A Second Night of Violence

On Sunday afternoon, police Chief Edward Flynn said the man whose death touched off Saturday night’s rioting was shot after he turned toward an officer with a gun in his hand.  Flynn cautioned that the shooting was still under investigation and authorities were awaiting autopsy results, but that based on the silent video from the unidentified officer’s body camera, he “certainly appeared to be within lawful bounds”. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker put the National Guard on standby to curtail any repeat of the violence from Saturday night.


Protests were peaceful Sunday evening until around 11PM when two dozen officers in riot gear confronted about 150 people who blocked an intersection near the fatal shooting Saturday afternoon. Police moved in to try to disperse the crowd and warned of arrests after protesters threw bottles and rocks at police. It was at this point that multiple shots were fired by the protesters. Police said one person was shot and officers used an armored vehicle to retrieve the injured victim and take the person to a hospital.

    Just fence the area off like the movie “Escape from New York City”. Send in some Snake Pliskin type Navy Seals or Contractors and clean up the remaining azzclowns left in the morning.
    Someone has to know who the leaders of the BLM movement is. Take them out just like the terrorists they are and be done with it. Drones will do the job also. This is terrorists on USA soil.

    Anarchy ; Mean’s No existing Government ; Where the community protects each other , they are self-sufficient no one is truly in control , no cop’s and not many criminals , because criminal’s are held accountable by the community at large ; Neighbors protect neighbor’s, most people have some sort of weapon, that they use to protect themselves or their local neighborhood, another way of looking at it is families’ organize around each other to deal with the common problems of life, for example, protection, growing food, trading food, natural disaster’s, it’s really about people helping each other as a tribal community, with no one formally in charge. Although I can’t say that it has ever been proven too work, it’s theoretical . Chaos’ is a riot out of control or where there is no civility, no accountability, where the strong survive and the weak eventually perish, if no outside force is there to intervene, similar to the South Los Angeles riots in 1992, in the sense, that the cop’s got scared off, leaving everybody too fend for themselves!!!

    I’m a Caucasian woman with many black friends who don’t belong to BLM, they just want to live productive lives and have a good family life like you and me. What is going to happen to those people? Are they going to be grouped in with BLM by those who are angry with what BLM are doing? Will they be murdered walking down the street the way BLM wants to do to whites? When is this going to stop? How will you distinguish?

      Rose, if your black friends are like mine and are leading productive decent lives they will not be doing anything (like rioting and burning buildings) to get themselves hurt. You seem to not be able to understand the difference between self defense and murder if you believe that blacks will be indiscriminately killed. Besides we will protect them just like anyone else in our community.

        I live in Baltimore, which has become the home for the BLM leadership. We have had our share of riots and violence against police. This is absolutely NOT a black/white issue. The area I live in is 80% black. Whites, like me, are the minority. The vast majority of the blacks are 100% fed-up with the BLM movement. The last major protest (about 3 weeks ago with 65 arrests) had not one black person participating. They were all white; every single one. All but a few were local college students. We had a minor protest yesterday where the BLM protesters chained themselves up to try and stop a police union convention. This time there were only 2 black participants; the rest were white. Again, it was local college students. If you talk to these folks you will find that their college professors are the ones filling their heads with disinformation and radicalizing them to participate in these protests. BLM is nothing more than a destabilization tactic being used by the NWO elite to force Baltimore to accept Federal oversight of the police force. In Baltimore, they succeeded and they intend to continue this action city by city until the majority of the cities have succumbed to Federal control. BLM is without a doubt controlled by the White House and the financiers that put the President into the Oval Office.

    Never in history has the collapse of a country been as thoroughly documented by its people. That will be the legacy of the American patriots. Sorry for my cynicism but I have literally grown old waiting for us to take a stand and watching the tree of liberty go to the saw mill.

    On New Year’s Eve 2011 Obama (in concert with GOP Presidential nominee McCain) signed the NDAA. The Bill of Rights (and our Founders’ Republic) was dealt a fatal blow. That did not cause patriots to revolt. I then realized that we don’t have stomach to do what has to be done. Like the line in the Forest Gump movie, “And then one day it was over, just like that.” America RIP.

      Diane D, Just because obama the presidential impersonator and “songbird” traitor McCain signed the NDAA means exactly nothing.

      First, even if he was a legitimate US President, he has NOT the authority to do such a thing. It was NEVER delegated to the executive branch or to the office of US President within the executive branch. The ONLY people that would have to comply with the NDAA is those that serve within the FEDERAL government. It would be like your boss giving you an order. That order does not stand for all the clients/customers, just for the employees. Understand?

      Read the US Constitution and your state Constitution. Go train, and it matters not how old you are, etc, as everyone has something to offer in defense of our nation, even if it is only a hot meal when needed, or a drink. If it is managing the distribution of food, clothing, seeds, etc. If it is “only” teaching the truth of our nation to others. It is all valuable and needed.

      America is not over. It is in a difficult time. But she is still alive. She was born in a difficult time. How can you tell that she is not over and that many believe in her and will stand for her still? Ever see the talking heads exclaim over gun and ammo sales? Some people do not “talk”, they act as the time requires them to act and wit until more actions are needed.

    Even though I dislike the so called Black Lives Matter movement, the problems started here because a police officer shot a presumably innocent American in the back because the alleged criminal didn’t want to talk to the cop. Some of you idiots will say if he weren’t guilty of something he shouldn’t have run. Well he wasn’t proven guilty of anything by a jury of his peers and as far as I know running is not illegal. Others will say he had a gun. So what, refer to the second amendment. If the man was so dangerous that he needed to be put down he would have just shot the cop and rolled on. Cops need to realize that if they consider themselves as Judge, Jury, and Executioner then they are the ones that are the criminals. you don’t shoot a person in the back just because he is running. THEN to make matters worse they send out RIOT POLICE to disperse a peaceful protest of persons angry and saddened by the execution of a man from their community who’s only known “crime” was running. NO wonder LE and DAs are being gunned down at a rate so fierce some will begin to hide their badges and quit pulling people over for stupid reasons like “looking suspicious” or not having their seatbelts on. Remember the police work for us (ALL AMERICANS) They need to quit extorting money from drivers and go solve real crimes like child slavery, serial killers, Wall Street Cheats, and crooked politicians.
    “Protests were peaceful Sunday evening until around 11PM when two dozen officers in riot gear confronted about 150 people who blocked an intersection near the fatal shooting Saturday afternoon.

      Phyllis – I suggest you hold your condemnation of the officer until the autopsy and the body-cam footage are released. It appears that you may be getting your information from an ill-informed source. According to the officials that have reviewed the body-cam footage, the suspect was not shot while running or in the back. He was shot while facing the officer and raised his weapon. As for the riot police, the live streaming footage of the Saturday protest clearly shows that regular police without riot gear were attacked by the crowd without provocation. Once the police were attacked, they went and put on their riot gear. On Sunday, since several officers had already been injured, the police did wear protective equipment. The protesters were asked dozens of times to stop blocking traffic. When they refused, the officers attempted to arrest one of the leaders hoping that that would encourage the others to get out of the street. It was at this point that the protesters again attacked the officers. Again, you may need to find a new source for your news because these facts are not disputable.

      Running is not illegal ?? He had a gun, so what ? Refer to the Second Amendment ? What stupid comments….you have got to be in possession of some measurable brains ! Basic common sense should tell you that if you put yourself in the same position, you should expect to get a trip to the ER or the morgue. Quit breaking the law to correct the issue.

    Please consider the harm being done to society’s lower classes by what I label “class war.” An unholy alliance between big business and big government creates many systems that channel a too-large portion of the national wealth to a few folks atop the socioeconomic pile. Toss in a huge number of legal and illegal immigrants that ensure wages are kept artificially low and their housing demand keeps rental costs high.

    Folks… think back to the 1960s era when jobs were more plentiful for the common folks and the wages allowed a worker to exist with less stress than nowadays. There was more discretionary income after paying life necessities than is available now. Not that tough economic times are an excuse for hooligans to create mayhem BUT… the stress of eking out a meager living nowadays surely creates fertile fields for agitators to sow discord.

    Arming up is necessary but it is NOT a solution to the problem. If we still have any hope of solving the problem, I will offer an analogy. Lets say that you have 100 sheep, three wolves in sheep’s clothing and one sheep dog. What should the sheep dog do? Protect the sheep while exposing the wolves. Hopefully the sheep will then follow the sheep dog and no longer listen to the wolves. So it takes three things for a solution to be had: Protect the sheep, expose the wolves and then the sheep have to make the right decision. The first two actions are our responsibility. The third action rests with the sheep.
