Milwaukee: violent protests after police shooting

http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/13/us/mil...ing/index.html

Quote:
Angry crowds took to the streets in Milwaukee on Saturday night to protest the shooting death of an armed man by a police officer hours earlier.

Protesters burned several stores and threw rocks at police in the city's north side, leaving one officer injured. Smoke and orange flames filled the night sky.

The incident started Saturday afternoon when two officers stopped two people who were in a car in the north side, according to the Milwaukee Police Department.

Shortly after, both car occupants fled on foot as officers pursued them, police said.

During the chase, an officer shot one of the two -- a 23-year-old man who was armed with a handgun, according to authorities.

"He (officer) ordered that individual to drop his gun, the individual did not drop his gun," Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said. "He had the gun with him and the officer fired several times.

The man died at the scene. It's unclear whether the second occupant of the car is in police custody.

Calling a riot an irrational expression of rage. That's such a cop-out. It's opportunism at its worst. It's people grabbing any excuse they can find to go and loot a store, nothing more.

He did.

RE: national guard

Walker said he took the step after receiving a request from Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and talking with Mayor Tom Barrett and the Guard's leader. The Guard will be in position to help "upon request," according to Walker's announcement.

Quote:
The officer involved in the shooting was a black police officer, and he had his body camera on at the time of the shooting. The suspect, Sylville Smith, 23, was indeed black, but he wasn't shot while just running away.

After reviewing the shooting footage, Milwaukee Chief Edward Flynn said, "The individual did turn toward the officer with a firearm in his hand." Chief Flynn added that Smith was "raising up with" the gun at the time that he was shot by the officer.
