Skip to comments.Police: Race a factor in State Fair violence
Posted on 08/11/2011 5:13:57 AM PDT by WOBBLY BOB
WEST ALLIS, Wis.West Allis police say the ongoing investigations into 11 violent incidents on the opening night of the Wisconsin State Fair suggest race did play a role. The 11 incidents included nine assaults, a robbery and an attempted robbery. All the victims were white or Hispanic and the offenders were described as African-American.
On opening night of the fair last week, 31 people were arrested and at least 11 people were hurt. The West Allis Police Department is handling some of those cases.
The department said Tuesday that its officers arrested seven people in different incidents around the fairgrounds that night. In those cases, which included loitering, police say race did not play a factor.
The State Fair has since stepped up security with additional local and state officers.

Police: No hate crimes in these State Fair arrests
I bet no one over the age of 18 was arrested.
Eventually Holder’s people will find that we still outnumber and outgun them and it will be very very ugly.
We’re tired of subsidizing them and then still putting up with their behavior
Oh never mind...idiots.
It is quite surprising (laws of chance) in these various group assaults that thus far none of the intended victims or bystanders has been armed.
Sooner or later someone is going to plug one of the assailants. Happens in the right area of the right city and kaboom.
Then will we have Mohammad Obama castigating the white victim and turning him into the perpetrator?
This article answers your question about why folks don’t carry—
... at the very end it says the usual crap: ‘state law permits carry, but fair officials say rules prohibit it.’
Please see the 2nd and 14th amendment.
The fact that these disturbances were not reported in the media is strong evidence that it was racially motivated.
Mere “hooliganism” would have created more headlines.
I am referring to all of these group assaults in the various cities. Not this particular one.
It is inevitable that one or more of these animals will get plugged. The question is, how bad will it have to get before our PC government and media admit that the victims are justified in defending themselves? Answer - they will never be justified as long as the perpetrators are black.
It will be instructive to watch the reactions of politicians and media when riots erupt as a result of nailing one or more of these criminals.
And in Philly (among other racially motivated crimes), this:
Group Of Teens Randomly Attack Man On Kelly Drive
Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter has announced a curfew for specific areas of Philadelphia on Fridays and Saturdays in order to curb the recent spread of dangerous flash-mobs in the city. Today, we are issuing an enforcement response and a community response to these terrible acts by a small number of reckless teenagers who have damaged our city and our citizens, Nutter said.
The dangerous flash-mobs have been involved in violent incidents in the past. Recently, two men were attacked in Philadelphias Center City district by a flash-mob of 40 people. In another flash-mob incident, a cyclist was beaten in Philadelphias South Street neighborhood in 2009 after a flash-mob formed in the area. Nutter and other city officials hope that the curfew will keep such incidents at bay during the summer months.
Milwaukee police said not racially motivated.....but West Allis police, as usual, see it for what it is. State Fair borders both police districts. I assume most or all of the gang of thugs lived in Milwaukee. Milwaukee police will say or do anything (right or wrong) to keep the peace with their residents.
Just so ya know, I agree with your point.
Also, until now, who thought you needed to carry to go to the State Fair with your family?
Well, now I carry when I buy gas and go to Kroger, and Office Depot, and WalMart and so on.
For quite a while I have carried my Sig P220 ‘hand cannon’ when travelling by car on business or visiting rationally risky areas. I can conceal it with the right clothing. Depending on the mode I am in, I carry ITW/rear, OTW or shoulder. Honestly it (my Sig and two extra mags) wouldn’t work well in a recreational environment just from a size/comfort and concealment standpoint. It may be time to step down to a ‘little’ .25 with the right loads as an option. Or maybe a Targus Judge? THAT I could truly conceal.
You will also find that then, and only then, will the Reverend Sharpton and the Reverend Jackson show up to protest white violence against their minions. They will castigate the white race and institutional racism. The media will then be more than happy to pick up the story and run in nationwide on their nightly newscasts. Why? Because is shows whitey being the racist they all know that whitey is and that once again the poor minority community is being attacked.
That is my new computer desktop.
Of course race was a factor!
The annoying victims insisted on provoking the poor, misunderstood attackers with their damn whiteness, giving the hopeless, unemployed attachers no choice but to lash out at the unfairness of not being white.
<< Double tap.
OK, it’s time to cut out the “double tap” stuff. It’s not funny, and can encourage someone reading it to think it’s a valid technique. It is NOT - any mention of it after a defensive shooting could land you in prison for life.
Look at the image a few postings below yours. Seeing two casings in mid-air clearly says double tap. In the opinion of most instructors (Im an NRA Senior TC and also POST certified) the second shot is un-aimed (read spraying lead), and therefore, difficult to justify in a court of law if you were claiming self defense. The shooter should be looking for two closely-timed AIMED shots. Think aim - trigger press -aim - trigger press - aim. (Thats right - two shots and three aims.)
And while I’m at it, back to the image: The finger area/indentation found on the forward edge of the trigger guard on some modern semi-automatic handguns: It is quite useful when there is a weapon-mounted laser or light that requires activation via a button in that area (on/off as needed during tactical movement).
However, when equipment is not mounted on the handguns rail, placing the index finger of the support hand on the forward edge of the trigger guard can de-stablize the grip, and cause unwanted movement of the frame during the firing sequence.
Not only does it shift the balance between the support hand and firing hand in a two-handed grip but it opens the door to movement of the frame due to sympathetic movement of, or pressure from, the index finger of the support hand during what otherwise should be an isolated, piston-like movement of the trigger finger on the firing hand.
Dumb image, dumb expression.
