Wisconsin Preparing For Riots As Officer Is Cleared of Shooting Suspect With Gun

There may not be any better example of what cowardly politicians are capable of doing to law enforcement and their communities than the story of Wauwatosa (WI) Officer Joseph Mensah.

Mensah, who is African American, grew up in the small suburb outside of Milwaukee and has been a  model police officer for over 5 years. A member of the SWAT Team with one disciplinary action in his career following a minor traffic wreck.

IF YOU CARE ABOUT BLACK LIVES, SPEAK UP ABOUT OFFICER MENSAH

Mensah was also tasked with finding and arresting some of the most violent criminals in the area. Unfortunately, since 2015, he has faced three incidents involving deadly force, and subsequently shot and killed three suspects—all of them “people of color” as his critics ironically boast.

As any one with experience would know, the amount of skin pigmentation hardly matters when you’re being threatened with a gun or a sword.

THE JONAS BROTHERS DEMAND THE PROSECUTION OF OFFICER MENSAH

But those facts didn’t stop the politicians from placing Mensah on leave months ago and ordering a “re-investigation” of the shootings—which were already investigated by multiple agencies.

The first two shootings were deemed justified years ago by the Milwaukee District Attorney and the DOJ.

Today, his latest shooting was also justified by the Milwaukee DA John Chisholm.

WOKE POLITICIANS PUT OFFICER’S LIFE IN DANGER

Despite Mensah’s life apparently not mattering to the politicians, the activists and celebrities such as Jay-Z and the Jonas Brothers, Wauwatosa is preparing for the worst.

The National Guard has just deployed…

City Hall has been shut down…

And schools in Wauwatosa have been closed for the remainder of the week, with distance learning put in place.

THE MEDIA REMAINS SILENT AS POLITICIANS SEEK TO DESTROY A DECORATED BLACK OFFICER

But let’s be perfectly clear. The pending outrage has little do to with Officer Joseph Mensah using deadly force to protect himelf—but everything to do with cowardly politicians failing to stick with the facts and suggesting that somehow Officer Mensah—or any police officer—is wrong in doing so.

These cowardly actions by politicians—and the climate they have permitted—have also placed Mensah in danger as Black Lives Matter protesters went to his house in August and blasted a shotgun towards him.

None of that has stopped the city council and the mayor from continuing to ignore the police union’s demands for explanation—while allowing hate-spewing committee members and their council supporters from promoting contempt against Mensah—one of just three black officers on the department. Yet bizarrely, members of Tosa Together and other civic groups want Officer Mensah fired, while demanding greater diversity on the police department. We are not sure if they and other so-called “social justice” organizations even know what they believe, let alone what they are talking about—or if they were even aware that Officer Mensah was black when the started their knee-jerk demands for “justice.”

However, putting all the debate and nonsense aside, the justified shootings of a black police officer protecting his own life obviously mean little to the Wauwatosa politicians. While Officer Mensah’s suspension should sound the alarm across the nation, their hiring of an investigator—conveniently a practicing attorney and resident of Wauwatosa—to justify firing Mensah should signal to every officer in every department that cowardly politicians will stop at nothing to fabricate illusions and avoid facing the facts—including how they likely overlooked Officer Mensah’s race, and seem to have reduced the whole matter to an absurd probability game and heartless calculus.

Amazingly, in picture perfect timing, just hours before the D.A.’s decision—that once again clears Officer Mensah of any wrong doing—the so-called independent—former U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic, who was hired by the politicians to “re-investigate” each shooting, announced his “findings.” And if there were any statistical merit to any of this, we’d love to know with what percentage of confidence is the likelihood that Officer Mensah will be involved in another shooting—95% or 95%… Strangely, despite using future probability as a basis for the findings, Biskupic offered absolutely no level of confidence in such statistical probability assumptions, which even high-school math assignments often require.

Nothing like throwing gasoline on a problem that cowardly politicians have created…

Watch for things to come in Wauwatosa…
