The “youths” of Milwaukee decided to go on a July the 4th rampage by looting a BP gas station and beating down random people in Reservoir Park:
MILWAUKEE – A group of friends hanging out at Reservoir Park in Milwaukee were attacked and robbed around midnight on July 4th.
The victims have black eyes, staples in their heads and bruises throughout their body.
The victims said a group of nearly 50 teenagers came running down North Avenue early Monday morning. . . .
But minutes before a group of teens looted the BP gas station a block away at North Ave. and Humboldt.
The surveillance video showed boys and girls snatching chips, beverages and entire display cases before running out of the store.
The victims believes those same teens attacked them.
“They were beating up dudes and girls they were kicking my sister they kicked her head they punched me and it was guys and girls,” explained a sobbing victim.
Another victim this time a 28-year-old man said he saw anywhere from 30 to 50 kids run at he and his friends.
“It was pretty scary just because it was so random,” explained the second victim.
Gosh, this sounds to me like a rash of similar “unrelated incidents” in Chicago, Atlanta, Birmingham, Philly, and Columbia, which although geographically separated by thousands of miles, all seem to boil down to the same common denominator.
It is reminiscent of what former President Dwight Eisenhower labeled “a pattern of insurrection” in 1967. I was just reading about that this evening.
Watch the video. It includes surveillance footage of the “youths” who were responsible for this attack. The Riverwest neighborhood in Milwaukee is well known for its “diversity.”
Update: The details are coming out about Black Memorial Day 2011 in Chicago:
Schwartz said she was walking from Oak Street Beach toward North Avenue Beach on Memorial Day when she witnessed a woman being beaten by a gang of people on the beach.
“They were being rude and abusive and throwing trash around and defecating,” Schwartz said. “The crowd became very animated. They were cheering on the beating and more people joined in, so I kept walking forward. I was afraid I could be next.”
Defecating on the beach? A gang of animals savagely beating a woman? Here I was under the impression that people were suffering from just a little “heat exhaustion” that day.
