Third Night Of Milwaukee Riots, Milwaukee Police Crack Down Early, Send Rioters Packing

Milwaukee, Wisconson – It’s hard to unlawfully assemble when people aren’t allowed to assemble. That’s the thinking that saved Milwaukee in the third night of the Milwaukee riots.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett set a city-wide curfew of 10 PM for anybody under 17 years old. After the curfew was set, officers strictly enforced it and didn’t allow any juveniles out on the streets after-hours.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke also ordered that Sherman Park, which was near the center of the rioting, be closed at 6 PM.  Six businesses had previously been burned down in the Sherman Park area. The police stuck around to ensure that nobody was hanging around after the park closed.

Even with officers clearing people out of the area, the evening started tense. Our sources tell us that some instigators tried to start trouble, but were immediately taken down. With the biggest agitators being arrested, the rest of the crowd appeared to lose heart.

Milwaukee Chief Edward Flynn and Mayor Tom Barrett held a press conference at 10:30 and announced that 6 of the agitators had been arrested and things had quieted down. After that, there were no more signs of trouble.

The riots for the past three nights were sparked when a black criminal pointed a stolen gun at black officer, got shot by that black officer, who was protecting a black neighborhood, and black residents responded by burning down their own neighborhood, because Black Lives Matter.

At least 8 police officers were injured by rioters the night before, with gunshots being fired in at least 30 instances. The rioters were also involved in arson and looting.

Hopefully this was the last night of rioting. Our heroes did a great job protecting their city.
