    MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee police officer who fatally shot a black man in August, sparking several nights of unrest, has been charged with sexually assaulting a man the night after the shooting, after they watched coverage of the riots on television at a bar, authorities said Thursday. Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown, 24, was arrested Wednesday. The alleged victim, unidentified in a criminal complaint, told police on Aug. 15 that Heaggan-Brown had sexually assaulted him while off duty.

    It’s “pitchforks and torches time”, a prominent conservative sheriff tweeted on Saturday, with a condemnation of the government and media that echoes the increasingly heated rhetoric of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. David A Clarke, the elected sheriff of Milwaukee County, is a leading Trump supporter who has previously called Black Lives Matter activists the “enemy”. Clarke paired what appeared to be an accusation of the corruption in most of the United States government with a photoshopped image of a crowd of people carrying burning sticks and pitchforks....

    Gov. Scott Walker is drawing sharp criticism for his plan to delay highway projects, including the Zoo Interchange in Milwaukee. In the past, the governor has hailed the interchange as key to state businesses that transport products throughout the region. Walker mentioned MillerCoors in his 2013 State of the State address. "MillerCoors is in a hyper-competitive industry. They're looking to find a competitive advantage: who can get a cold beer on a bar in Madison or Green Bay or even Chicago, the fastest. Beer trucks are tied up in the Zoo Interchange? The MillerCoors brewery here in Wisconsin is at...

    Federal agents lacked proper guidance and experience while conducting undercover sting operations in Milwaukee and several other cities that were aimed at disrupting illegal gun sales, according to a U.S. Justice Department report released Thursday. ..... Pensacola agents didn't place a team outside the store to help with potential emergencies and had no plans for dealing with people who couldn't legally possess guns but who left the store armed.

They chased him down like a pack of wild dogs, in this case the man was a reporter for a local newspaper. When he was surrounded, the mob began to punch the luckless man until he fell to the ground. Once on the ground, the crowd proceeded to kick at the prostrate figure. “There’s another whitey,” screeched a second black woman, while pointing at a white woman, she was a reporter for a local news...

    The largest union representing New York City police officers has awarded its man of the year honor to an outspoken black conservative and supporter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, known for his criticisms of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as President Obama, was named Man of the Year by the New York Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.

    Amid the rioting in Milwaukee, there is also a clash between two leading lawmen there -- Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and the city of Milwaukee's Chief of Police Edward Flynn. They have very different opinions about how law enforcement should be carried out. Chief Edward Flynn expresses the view long prevalent among those who emphasize the social "root causes" of crime, such as income disparities and educational disparities, as well as the larger society's neglect of black communities. Chief Flynn puts less emphasis on aggressive police action and more on community outreach and gun control. Sheriff David Clarke represents...

The price you pay, I suppose, is that Hillary’s servants in the news media will take anything they can and use it to create a narrative against him. I’m a little surprised they haven’t jumped all over his statement that “Hillary Clinton is against the police.” You’d think there would already be media “fact-checkers” presuming to “debunk” this statement. But Trump makes himself clear if you’re willing to pay attention. She’s against the police in the...

Local news reported that the 23-year-old suspect was not only armed but that he also defied orders to drop his gun. The Milwaukee police chief refused to identify the officer involved, but did say that he was "black." At one time, such a fact would suggest that racism and police brutality were not at play.

So put aside any talk of pivoting — the fact is, Trump delivered a focused, powerful, and disciplined speech Tuesday night in West Bend, Wisconsin, about 45 minutes north of Milwaukee. Trump focused largely on problems that disproportionately afflict black Americans, arguing that his proposals on crime, immigration, trade, jobs, education, and other issues will improve African-American lives more than Hillary Clinton's. Trump began by declaring, "We're at a decisive moment in this election," which few...

    There are those of us in America who have no problem telling it how it is. A man being interviewed by a Milwaukee TV station during the violent protests over the weekend basically said that until rich people pay up to black people, violence and riots will continue. “It’s sad because, you know, this is what happen because they not helping the black community,” the unidentified man said. "The rich people they got all this money and they not, like you know, trying to give us none."

    Tension flared again overnight in Milwaukee, with one person shot and a police officer injured in the second night of riots triggered by the fatal shooting of a suspect by an officer. Police violence against African-Americans has ignited sporadic, sometimes violent protests in the past two years. It also has prompted a national debate over race and policing while fuelling the growth of the Black Lives Matter civil rights movement. Violence erupted in Milwaukee on Sunday after peaceful vigils by small groups of demonstrators, and police said late that night that they had rescued one shooting victim, who was taken...

    Race-rioters openly hunt whitey. An anti-white reign of Black Lives Matter terror consumed Milwaukee Saturday after a black cop shot a black, gun-wielding suspect for refusing to drop his weapon when lawfully commanded to do so. Gov. Scott Walker (R) activated Wisconsin’s National Guard as a precaution but calm had apparently been restored Sunday.

    The burning buildings, smashed police cars and scuffles between police officers and angry protesters on Milwaukee’s north side over the weekend might have seemed like a spontaneous eruption. But for many in the city’s marginalized black community, it was an explosive release decades in the making. Milwaukee is one of the United States’ most segregated cities, where black men are incarcerated or unemployed at some of the highest rates in the country, and where the difference in poverty between black and white residents is about one and a half times the national average. There are barren lots and worn-down homes...

    An anti-white reign of Black Lives Matter terror consumed Milwaukee Saturday after a black cop shot a black, gun-wielding suspect for refusing to drop his weapon when lawfully commanded to do so. Gov. Scott Walker (R) activated Wisconsin's National Guard as a precaution but calm had apparently been restored Sunday. The officer who shot the suspect was African-American, police said. His name was not given but he was described as a 24-year-old who'd been with the police department for six years, the last three as an officer.

    When police identified Sylville Smith as the Milwaukee man shot by an officer Saturday, triggering a violent uprising on the city’s mostly black north side, Chief Edward Flynn cited Smith’s “lengthy criminal record.” Online court records showed multiple charges against the 23-year-old Smith dating back to 2013. One was as minor as retail theft — which was dismissed — and other less serious offenses included speeding, driving without insurance, driving with a suspended license or having open intoxicants in a vehicle. There were more serious charges. Smith was accused in a shooting last year and charged with recklessly endangering safety,...
