For the last few weeks we have been reporting on the unbelievable case of Wauwatosa (WI) Officer Joseph Mensah.
And what was at first an attack on Officer Mensah’s reputation has now become an attack on him and his family.
According to Officer Mensah himselg, Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters, between 50-75 of them, surrounded his girlfriend’s house, assaulted and physically attacked her—while shooting at Officer Mensah—and yelling “Black Lives Matter.”
Mensah has had three justified shootings in the last five years. One suspect attacked him with a sword, and two with guns. Until the George Floyd incident, not much has ever been said. It is an unfortunate truth that law enforcement, at times, has to use deadly force to protect the lives of themselves or the public.
Mensah, who works just outside of Milwaukee, patrols a violent area. He also happens to be African American.
Several weeks ago, activists, politicians and celebrities such as the Jonas Brothers took notice and went after Mensah.
The demand is simple, Officer Mensah, who has broken no laws or violated any policy, should be immediately arrested and fired.
Waueatosa Alderperson Heather Kuhl, who is white, took notice and demanded that Officer Mensah be fired to help “repair the damage” of Wauwatosa’s “racist history.”
Yes, a white city official demanded the firing of a black officer to somehow fix the city’s “racist history.”
Kuhl sent a letter to the Wauwatosa (WI) Police & Fire Commission demanding the termination of Police Officer Joseph Mensah and he was subsequently suspended and his gun was taken away.
The suspension along with the celebrity involvement seems to have increased the volume of those demanding that a decorated black police officer who defended his life three separate times, be arrested and fired.
Mensah has previously expressed a concern that his life could be in danger due to the rhetoric and because of the suspension (for no policy violations), and the ability to not carry a concealed weapon per his policy, he was concerned.
A week ago, approximately 100 protesters and multiple cars showed up at Officer Mensah’s home. They screamed obscenities, scaring children that were present.
Officer Mensah was not home and the crying children had to be removed by law enforcement that were called to the scene.
Make no mistake, these are not peaceful protesters.
And that was proven Saturday night.
At approximately 8 pm, a mob of people chanting “Black Lives Matter” arrived at a residence that Officer Mensah and his girlfriend were at.
The rioters began breaking windows.
Joseph was unarmed and while attempting to defend the life of everyone there, including black children, he was shot at by a coward with a shotgun.
The round missed Mensah by inches.
His girlfriend was assaulted.
At this point, the mainstream media appears to be oddly keeping this quiet.
We have never been quiet about what is going on in Wauwatosa.
It is now “Ground Zero” of the evil that has penetrated America. From politicians to celebrities to the evil that showed up and tried to kill Officer Mensah last night, this is where we are.
And it is time to fight back.
Officer Mensah calls what happened last night the ultimate irony.
Mensah tells us, “The irony in all of this is that they chanted ‘Black Lives Matter’ the entire time, but had no zero regard for any of the black children that live there or me, a black man.”
We call it more than an irony.
This is evil.
And we are calling on all law enforcement professionals, dispatchers, their families, friends, and supporters to rally and help put a stop to the insanity.
