MILWAUKEE – Noted racial forecasters were disturbed, but not surprised, by the latest incidents of violence in this Midwestern city. After a police officer shot and killed an armed black man who refused to drop his gun after being asked repeatedly, looters took to the streets to burn cars and businesses, and threatening to kill white people.
Although the police officer in this case was black, facts were inconvenient truths for the rioters. All they needed was an excuse to let off steam and space to destroy. City officials say the city is a “powder keg” just waiting to go off.
Saturday night’s violence was just a tremor, warn Black Lives Matter forecasters, and the city should still be prepared for “the big one.” Milwaukee is an older city and its infrastructure was not built to be loot, riot, or fire-proof. If the big one does hit, damage could be in the hundreds of dollars.
Residents are urged to stay vigilant and to take comfort in the fact that their president feels their plight. He’ll be on the golf course if you need him.
And remember, Milwaukee, it’s not a good thing to be compared to shit holes like Ferguson and Baltimore.
