Milwaukee youth: “The police want to kill us”

Lauren SouthernArchive

The mood changed in Milwaukee when the sun started to go down, and more peaceful protesters were replaced by angry young men. One in particular was convinced that officers on the scene were just waiting for orders to open fire on the crowd.

Whatever happened to just keeping your nose clean?? Isn’t that the right thing to do, stay out of trouble by obeying the law & there will be no need fot the police to watch your every move.

Maybe if these “kids” acted in a lawful manner they wouldn’t feel so vulnerable?! Just saying.

Well, maybe these “kids” need to abandon their criminal ways!!

Quite honestly I do not care what happens to trash that believe the world owes them a living and a life.

“They’re selling postcards of the hanging
They’re painting their passports brown
The beauty parlour is full of sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
They have him in a trance
with one hand tied to the tightrope walker…the other in his pants
As Lady and I walk out tonight on Desolation Row”

(“Lady” of “lay Lady lay” fame was Bob Dylan’s Irish setter)

And the only sound still ringing clear after the ambulances go…is Cinderella swiping up on Desolation Row…

Lauren…I sincerely hope you find the shoe that fits…or that it finds you…..:-)

Sorry to scorn you Lauren, but innocents get caught in the crossfire

The golden screed : “they treat us like we animals” – says while behaving like an animal in front of the smoking ruins of his own community.

Epic irony!

So they remove an effective police presence to avoid these confrontations and hoodie boy there gets capped by a rival gang and his homies say the cops don’t care because they never stop crime – there is no winning a logical argument with someone who reacts on animal instinct only.

Lauren, what the hell are you doing in that place? You need not concern yourself with worldly things. Do you think you’re invincible?
