"And issuing a statement said he understands There's been a lot of controversy over Officer MENSA. Now Deputy MENSA, But he thoroughly researched all of the incidents that he was involved in and Wauwatosa and see Iverson came to the conclusion. That officer MENSA acted properly and proactively and did the right thing. And each of those shootings and He felt he was the best applicant for the position. There's also a point here that you think that the left he's about to make they are constantly carping that we don't have enough black police officers in the suburbs. The walk of Shaw County Sheriff's Department obviously has largely white. They've now hired an African American deputy. You would think that they might be happy about that, unless they want to continue to ride on the whole MENSA thing. Because he was willing to take the personal risk knowing the kind of which I think that goes on two police officers who fired their weapons to try to protect the community. Do that. So Sheriff's Iverson, who I've in the past suspected is not being particularly aggressive. Despite the fact that he's been elected as a Republican and a Republican County. He deserves a lot of credit here there are I think most police chiefs And most sheriffs anywhere in Wisconsin, not just southeastern Wisconsin with the rest of the state would not have had the guts to do it because Police officers and sheriffs are political creatures, and they realize that you get fire more criticism for doing something like this. And support and even walk a shark Cockney. I suspect that there are going to be some people who would just as soon not have seen MENSA hired because even though they felt he got a raw deal in while we're toast, said they're fearful it is gonna be protests. And walk ashore over that and again rather than stand up already principle. Now, the hard thing about protests that here is Finding your way to the walk of Stark County Jail isn't as easy as just standing around in the streets. The city of Wauwatosa, particularly given the fact that in Wauwatosa, the response from the mayor and the police chief to the demonstrations all summer was so weak and so tepid that they allowed this kind of behavior to occur. You even had the riot outside the home of the Milwaukee police officer. Hence his girlfriend. In which shots were fired into his house and David Bowie, in a member of the state Assembly lied to the police about the incident. And even then, hardly anybody was arrested on the scene. Despite the fact that there was vandalism of that police officer's home and all sorts of other laws that were breaking broken because while we're toast, they didn't have the guts. Who actually enforce all of the laws that were being violated. You also have a citizenry in Wauwatosa. It is opposed to a high rise apartment building but supported protesters were breaking all sorts of was by creating ruckus is night after night After night after night. I don't think with regard to the sheriff's department and walk a shock, Cody or, for that matter, the residents of Walker Show Connie that they will be as tolerant. This kind of behavior, And then there's also the reality of this. Decision to Herr Officer menses occurring in late January. The day we had half a blizzard. I just don't see the same kind of zeal. And holding protests night after night after night after night after night, right now on Walker shot, But who knows how it'll play out? Already? The statements of condemnation from the A C L U and others are coming yet. Interesting again where the A C L U stands. Given the fact that Officer MENSA has not been found guilty of any wrongdoing at any point in his career. If he was not hired. When he applied for a position and clearly was the most qualified. You think that if the A C l U were standing up for people's rights that they would stand up for the right Of a black applicant for our law enforcement position in the suburbs, who was denied the job for no legitimate reason. But instead, the instead of standing up for the African American is enforcing the law. B A C L U was standing up. For the rights of a bunch of educators who broken law after law after law after law in Tosa and other places, all suburb Couple of other points on this. I've got my ear to the ground on a lot of things. I had no idea. Benson was up for a job and Walker shot Cockney. The application process for any job is supposed to be confidential. You know, the names of any applicants are generally no wonder things like this. You might have heard something. And I had heard nothing. None of this came out until the announcement was made that he was being hired. As they say, I think that sheriff secrecy deserves a lot of credit here is that we don't know. I don't know how many other jobs meant supplied for Was he rejected in a number of other communities because of lily livered or bigoted. Police chiefs and sheriffs who didn't want to have the trouble. I don't know, or was the only job that he applied for Walker Stark County. I know from the perspective of being in law enforcement that that's considered a good agency to be it. Walker shot County Sheriff's Department and perhaps not everybody knows this. They actually are the police department in a number of communities. There are several municipalities in Walker Shaw County that do not have their own police departments. Instead, they contract With the walk a short walk a Shock County Sheriff's Department to do the police work in their community. In other words, they'll have deputies that always worked that particular community on a contract basis because they don't have their own police department. So they have unlike see in Milwaukee County, where every community in the county has their own police department walk a shark County. A number of the deputies actually do all of things that a police department could do. In addition to that, it is a huge county geographically. I mean, it goes obviously all the way from 124th Street here. Way out the bordering the Jefferson County line. It's a much larger county in terms of size. In Milwaukee County. Lot of territory. You got the interstate running through it. You have a quasi interstate with highway 16 going up and down lot of traffic enforcement that goes on there and Huge population. But not dead spread around all over the place and Lot of the same problems that a Metropolitan Law enforcement agency would have given that. Like a shot Connie, the third largest county in the state, in terms of population, it thinks huge, It's several 100,000. And a lot of territory to cover and every single type of thing. Everything from small town policing. Who a lot of traffic enforcement on the freeway and other roads and so on. Having to deal with.

"Text line I convince, I confess I'm a little bit surprised, not necessarily that this happened. But it happened is close to home. If you're just tuning in Joseph MENSA, the former Wauwatosa police officer who was the subject of all the protests, and all the controversies, ultimately cleared in connection with a shooting that he engaged in February. But he reached the separation agreement with the wallet, Tosa Fire and Police Commission a agreement that I think was probably in the interest of everybody because I do think that there was an element of officer men's had stayed on the wall, the toast of police force. He was so controversial that you knew that every time he tried to do anything in connection with law enforcement, traffic stop or whatever. You knew that there was a chance that somebody would be there trying to, I don't know, encourage him or egg him on to try to do something wrong. I just think it was best that there was a parting of the ways. But that didn't mean he was a bad cop, And it didn't mean he shouldn't be entitled to a new job. And that's exactly what has happened. Just a few months after leaving while the Tosa he has been hired to be a walk, a shock county sheriff's deputy Um 8556161, 6/20 2nd mortgage talking text line, Jeff, I think it's great. MENSA got another job. I'm surprised he took one so close to Wauwatosa. Had he been employed in another area further away, it probably wouldn't have been noticed. Well, I don't know that. I necessarily agree with that, because again, there's people that made Joseph MENSA. He was the poster child for The belief that they think that their systematic violence against persons of color and things with like putting aside the fact that officer mentioned is a person of color himself. And I think wherever he went, you knew there would be a degree of controversy. I actually give the walker shot, County sheriff a lot of credit for being willing to say Hey, I'm gonna I'm gonna give this guy a job. I don't see anything that tells me That he should not be entitled to be in law enforcement, and I'm going to treat him like I would any other sheriff's deputy Jeff, I think Officer MENSA deserves his chance. I believe he's a good police officer, and this is what he wants to do. Unfortunately, I feel he will not be treated fairly. And we'll deal with a lot of controversy moving forward. Especially being so close to wall it. Oh, so well. I can't imagine what's gonna happen. Next is soon as the weather gets a little bit nicer. You're going to see a lot of those protesters who were I don't know, Occupying the Cheesecake Factory and in Mayfair and shutting down Mayfair Mall. Don't be surprised if you see them out in Walker Shaw. Um Let's see. 85561616 20. What a great thing for officer MENSA. I think this is truly turning lemons into lemonade. Jeff, I seem to recall a time when police went to the front of the threat to protect the public and were regarded as heroic. The job requires courage and quick judgment. Not everyone has that. He seems to I remember one of the arguments about him was well, you know, he's there are and there are police officers who go their entire career and never have to draw their fire arm And and that's That's true. There is an element of truth to that. But I can remember discussing this with chief. Very Weber, who I've known for decades and again. I don't think I'm telling tales out of school. And then when, when the point the chief Webber made, he says, Look here. Here's the thing that people don't understand about police officers. You you don't get to pick and choose what calls you. Go on. You You know you're you're told. Hey, there's a disturbance that Mayfair mall. Go Check it out, and you've got a kid with a gun. Who points? It? You're you're told. Hey, it's 3 30 in the morning or three o'clock in the morning or whatever. There's this car that's parked where it's not supposed to be in this park. Go, go investigate, And you find some guy who's in the car with a gun that he points at you. Okay? The police officers. They don't get to pick. You know what which calls they answer And so in many respects while it's true that some officers go their entire career and don't have to pull their gun that doesn't mean that the ones who do are necessarily are forgetting unnecessarily doesn't mean the ones who do are bad cops. It means that they're find themselves in circumstances. Maybe that are not of their own making, and that's why you have the investigations And in this case he has been investigated thoroughly. They've determined that he did nothing wrong. At least there's nothing that would have been the basis for any sort of criminal charges and things like that. I don't think that there's even the basis for any sort of like civil or disciplinary action. I understand there's gonna be some lawsuits because there's always people out there who are going to raise claims and are going to have issues and are going to try to collect money and things like that. And that all plays out. But as far as the decision to hire him as long as the sheriff found nothing disqualifying in his background, the fact that you had some people that were upset with him and Wauwatosa. To me. That's not a basis for saying you cannot continue your career in law enforcement. And so I think that's kind of good news. It's a controversial decision by the Walker Shaw County sheriff. I'll be curious to see where the protesters come down on and whether this becomes a hot potato in Walker Shaw. If it does, my guess is the sheriff can handle that back with more in just a minute. This is Jeff Wagner. Stick around. Jeff Wagner is right around the corner. We're here for you, Wisconsin during these stressful times. This is Stephen Dave Orders.

"I don't want the facts to get in the way of a good story. But what happened is the fire and Police Commission ended up cutting a deal because they recognized that if they had just fired Officer MENSA, they would be looking at a major league lawsuit that could have cost the taxpayers and war with those a lot more dough, So they cut this deal. And as I've said before, Think officer ments that was treated harshly and unfairly by by the mob. But nevertheless I'll be the first to recognize that it's just sometimes it's best to move on. Okay, so that I'm quoting for the Facebook page. Weber. That would be chief Webber. Has shown that he is incapable of doing what he is supposed to do. So we are calling for Berry Weber to step down. All right, so protest. In German town. Trying to get bury Weber the wall with Tosa police chief to stand down that affect channel 58 reports Group upset with former wall with close of police Officer Joseph MENSA. Um you know they're they're organizing out in in Germantown. So if you're trying to connect the dots here, you might be saying, huh? Okay, well, we weigh know what the group was, even though they're not identified with one TV station. We know what the group was. And we know that they're still upset with what went on a wall with Tosa. But why are they in Germantown? All right. Well, here's the answer. It's because while we close the police chief bury Weber lives in Germantown, so that's why I will connect and thoughts for some news reporters who didn't do that, so that's why they're they're out there. They show up, and it wasn't a particularly large group. But they show up with the idea. I think of trying to get somewhere close to where? What? What does the police chief very Weber lives in Germantown for the point of protest Ng at his house, So that's the story. And then there were counter protesters, and apparently, it's somebody that through a megaphone at the police officer and a police car and damage that etcetera. Unclear whether there were any sort of arrests that were made. But the police were apparently ready for this, and we're prepared not to let this group who decided to travel out to Germantown to protest that very Weber's house. They weren't allowed him. I don't think they allow them to get like lots and lots of traction. Right. So that's the story behind what happened in Germantown, but it raises this larger issue. Our number is 85561616 20. That's the accurate mortgage talk and text line, the latest tactic. That some of these groups are using He is not just to protest it's City Hall not just to march and communities, but rather, they are trying to target elected and appointed officials. And go to their homes. This group or similar groups have been doing this with Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride for the course off over the course of the last Several weeks, maybe months. Showing up in residential neighborhoods, generally speaking after dark, creating a disruption trying to I don't know, disturb the peace. I don't know what the message is. You show up at the mayor's house and you start screaming. This was now this was one step removed from that because it's not even the community where this is involved, But okay, so we've got the local police chief who happens to live in a different community. Let's go out and let's try to protest that his house our number 85561616 20. That's the second mortgage talk and text line. Look, this is this is the latest example in the protest techniques. You know, you saw it this summer where you would have groups that would come up and scream at officeholders while they were out. Now it's let's take the protest to people's homes, even in communities. Where they don't even live even in communities where we're like I say In this case, we're very Webber is the chief of place he in While we're toast. He doesn't live in Germantown. But let's go out. Let's try to harass him at his house, 85561616 20. That's the accurate mortgage talk and text line. As far as I'm concerned, if these protest groups decide that they're going to go into private neighborhoods And try to disturb the peace. What should happen if they should be arrested for disturbing the peace? I can't walk down. If I've got a beef with the mayor of Shorewood, all right, and I get a couple of my buddies and we decide that we're going to go drive down the street. I don't have no idea of the mayor. Short witness. Don't go and start talking our horns and screaming at nine o'clock at night. All right. I think that the neighbors of the mayor of Shorewood has have every right Come in and say, Hey, knock it off. These people are disturbing the peace. This goes too far. 85561616 20. That's the accident mortgage talking text line. I know these groups think they're being clever. I know they think they're trying to get attention. Obviously, a lot of them have a lot of time on their hands because they show up day after day after day with protests But at some point in time do we say enough is enough? And when it comes to targeting elected and particularly appointed officials at their homes after dark. Right. Is that crossing the line? My answer is you bet we discuss in a moment. For.

"It's very clear. Very Weber, long serving police chief and Wauwatosa, I think he would be the first to tell you that he believes that Officer Joseph Enzo was treated unfairly in essentially because you have a a small and it is a small group of people, the mob who decided to go after him and make him a target. But the result of this is that you know, putting him back out on the streets would have been a problem. There's just and that Z not fair, but it's just kind of the reality that sometimes you become such a lightning rod for things that your ability ends up being compromised. So that's that is the unfortunate situation that I think Officer MENSA found himself in. No, I have no truck it all with thee again. The members of the People's Revolution or whatever They want to call those folks who were saying, Oh, he's a murderer. He needs to be fired. And there's the wall with post of Mayor The Fire and Police Commission. Our complicity with continuing to pay a murderer. Well, that's just crazy talk, and that's crazy. Talk from the cook French. He's not a murderer. He's a police officer who, in three separate situations that were all determined to be justified, ended up having to use lethal force. That's not a murderer, and the rhetoric by some of these groups doesn't help. It's not contributory, but at the same time there is this reality that's out there. The guy had become an incredible hot potato so At some point in time. I think you have to decide what's in the best interest of the community. Now again. I don't know what the separation agreement is. My guess is that they're my guess is they're paying him to money and you know what they should Pay him some money and to to do that, And then he's gonna move on. Okay. Texts, Jeff? No, no police officer and his or her right mind will want to work for the city of wall with Tosa. Well, I don't know. I mean, that's that's always the risk. You find that the were you afraid that for the next time that you are a police officer and you're involved in the legitimate shooting, and some group decides that they're going to be upset with you, and they're going to try to target you and you're going to stage protests that Mayfair mall or South rich mall or wherever that's going to be, and they're going to try to pressure civilian leaders to force you out? Do you think the city has your back now? I think in this particular situation, I think that the city of Wauwatosa not talking about some elected officials, but I think the police department and the city of wall with Tosa I think they stood by mints and I think it's some point in time. You just get to that point where you say you know what It's best for all parties to again move on and figure out what you're going to do with the rest of your life. Now, I candidly, I hope Officer menses able to you know if he wants to continue in law enforcement might not be in the state of Wisconsin. But if he wants to continue in law enforcement, I hope he has the opportunity to do that. But I think it Wauwatosa. You know, he's probably a situation where he has been compromised. And, yeah, I hope you got a decent settlement out of this, Jeff. Although very unlucky. I think he's a very good officer. I hope we can move on and it's some other department away from the Milwaukee area will be honored to have him as part of their department. I hope that the same mob that got him to resign doesn't get even more powerful for other departments in the future. These people should not be directing the law enforcement. Yes, thanks, Jeff. I totally agree that officer menses getting a raw deal. In my opinion, he was doing his job. Well, yeah, He's getting a raw deal, but at the same time again, sometimes you just got to recognize that this is the way it's going on. And I guess I'm trying to put myself in officer menses position, given the fact that you've got at least a certain vocal segment of the community that is Convinced and is committed to trying to make your life hell. I mean, they showed up, you know, with toilet paper and shotguns outside his girlfriend's home on a Saturday night that tells you the extent that some of these people are going to go and you know it's not going to go away. So if you're the officer, you're in his position saying, Ok, what? Why do I want to go through this? You know, day after day knowing that every time I'm out on the streets Every single thing I get is I do is going to be examined and re examined and reexamined and I know that there's going to be at least a certain segment of the community that's going to be trying to do everything they can to push my button to try to find some evidence that I have engaged in misconduct to try to antagonize me. And you know, that's just the situation. I mean, heck, that's what law enforcement people face a lot of times on a daily basis. And can you imagine what it would have been like for Officer MENSA? Jeff, They were even stalking him when was going out to eat, getting gas and groceries? Aye. There's videos of that bone. Multiple occasions. Jeff, He was not treated fairly, Um, G. And did you know that some of the people who were agitating are not even from wall with Tosa? Yeah, That's it. Jeff. That mob you're talking about was enabled by Wauwatosa elected officials. Yes, it was enabled by some wall with those elected officials. Including one who was subsequently resigned. Those officials should be ashamed of themselves, but the bottom line is we're bringing it the curtain down on the officer MENSA situation. I don't think it's fair. What happened to him? I don't think that the mob should take any pleasure in what they did Don't think they should be proud of themselves for what they did. But the bottom line is, I think it's important to close this chapter of this book. And by paying Officer MENSA reaching a separation agreement. Parting ways. I think it's good for everybody. Now the question is going to be what happens the next time you have some 16 or 17 year old that pulls a gun on a police officer and Wauwatosa. How is that going to play out? Hopefully, it'll never happen. But time will tell back with more in just a minute. This is Jeff Wagner WTMJ in the moments that matter, most.

"Committed a crime. Paul's decision to fire the shot might still be a reasonable decision. Even if it wasn't the best decision, not the best decision is not the same as somebody who is accused of committing a homicide. So there's nothing to charge him with, and there's not been any thing of charged with in the beginning. I don't believe that there's grounds to fire him. But that is a separate decision. The fact they threw that bone out there this morning. We believe that he needs to be fired and we're going to support the firing, and that's what the scoop is report said. I think it's a prelude to the district attorney issuing a decision in which officer MENSA does not receive Criminal charges. I would not be shocked if Chisum does gratuitously. Say that he believes that Officer MENSA should be fired. In other words, talk tough will not bringing any charges. How this all plays itself out will be as I think determined by the response of the authorities in Wauwatosa as The behavior of members of the people's Revolution and others that are out there, so we'll pick up on some of the property.

To a sarcastic piece of cartoon satire a little bit later on in the day, but our pal Steve Spin Gola, Milwaukee police, retired Milwaukee police homicide Detective is on the programme. You're also I mean, you're You're a researcher. You assistant in different cases. You've done the cold case show. Cold justice on the oxygen network. You know whether whether it be use of foreseeing me your subject matter expert so good to have you on the show, Steve. Come on How I use my press representative Vicky. Well, you know, I work for peanuts. Work for bear. All right now, I mean peanuts and beer. Both Steve. Let's talk about what we've already seen Beginning while Tosa. I have pictures and some folks doing some downtown field reporting on their own, sent me some information. Storefronts already being boarded up. Graffiti is already showing up. People are getting ready for the release of the charging decision of Officer Joseph MENSA. All of this suggests That people realize the charging decision is going to be Probably to not charge Officer MENSA in the death of Alvin Coal. So let's start there and talk about this case and then talk about what this officer has already been through. And what is likely to happen. You know, in the event that I'm right and that there is a decision not to charge I will decide. Clearly there is a chance that the charge officer events by any objectively reasonable standard he used, you know, self defense to protect himself. He was in imminent danger. Not gonna be any question about it. His family has hired an attorney. What's going to be interesting tomorrow is hardly explain this his family his playing valve in Cole's phone. He didn't fire a shot. The autopsy is going to show that the first shot that was fired, was actually fired by Alvin Cole, through his own left bicep, withdrew his gonna shoot officer. Men said he fired a shot himself. So let's see the family explain this one here. Yeah, That's right, because he's a good boy. That's that's everybody says he. You know, he's perfect kid. He's never done anything wrong. And this is just a you know. A police officer gunning down Ah black kid. Yada, yada yada fill in the blank. So that was just gotten out of secured attention with a stolen gun with a 30 round clip. Yeah, so you have it you have held Was he 17 17 Year adult Wisconsin. I'm sorry. He wasn't adults being adult decision and it got him killed. So here's the thing. He's an adult in Wisconsin. It wasn't old enough to own a gun, and he wouldn't have been. He would have been permitted to own a gun because it would have been illegal for him to own a gun. Yet somehow he procured a gun. A 30 round magazines, a 30 Round magazine. What's a 17 year old kid doing with a 30 round magazine who just got out of security attention who isn't legally able to own a gun. Let's put our thinking caps on here and go. I don't know. So, Officer MENSA. This this kid pulls out the gun and fires around through his own bicep. And then the you know, Officer MENSA is in fear of death or great bodily harm at that point, And that is when Officer MENSA draws his pistol and shoots. Absolutely. I mean, it's a clear cut case of self defense. And you know anybody who reads your self defense statute who always gone through any type of self defense training. When you go for your C C dub delays. This is just gonna soak on your common sense with the family's trying to Put your fictional that he wasn't a danger to anybody. He was a great danger, and you can see that there was a number of people's lives other than officer menses in danger. When those shots were fired, the body camera clearly captures it, it's explained. Clearly, it's gone through four investigations. Vicky Milwaukee P D. The Milwaukee County D, a. The U. S attorney, Oh, what's with the Police Department? He did nothing wrong. And so tomorrow tells gonna follow this decision. And again, the people of Wauwatosa. You're sitting there with a smorgasbord of stupidity called her common Council and Dennis McBride is the chef of that stupidity. Unless you do something, your town is going to burn and you deserve it unless you do something. Speaking of are is everybody on ready Do is it a high alert situation? You've got storefronts that are already deciding to plywood up the windows the day before. So our is the National Guard. Ready to go are additional departments on stand by to help out, you know. Is this something that you know that people are planning for and any kind of, you know, demonstration. That, of course, is nothing more than the Trojan horse for a riot can be cut off at the knees. Practice makes perfect and you know, unfortunately with one and Kanno shion without when I'm gonna watch you earlier, the National Guard's coming So are the Pew TV got 11 other departments on standby. I think they're already But the problem is one of their going to take action. You know the normal band across the country, including in Kenosha, Baltimore, Milwaukee, let him burn. Let him do some damage in selected areas, but No. You gotta understand Mayfair is there? No, that's their crown jewel on while it's also without that, you've got nothing that whole east side of the town is starting to change. You can feel it when you drive into what it's not safe. And if they let me circle like they did, Northridge Goodbye, wallets, All right, so there is a serious concern. I was talking with some people who actually have businesses near Mayfair. Very, very serious concern about what could happen is this area being secured ahead of time? So But give him space to riot. You just basically said that law enforcement and you tell me why this is the case is being told to let you know. Let glass break let some fires be started Give him space to riot. So that's that just creates a harder to solve problem later. If you give someone space Seretse here's the thing maybe 200 people standing. There aren't going to riot. But when the first two or three people throw the Molotov cocktail or throw the rock through the window, it's on. There is there is an emergent psychology that takes place. It's been studied for decades and decades and decades. Whoever throws the first rock it only takes the first guy to throw the first rocker the first guy to throw the first bomber, the first guy to like the first Dumpster on fire, and it's on So do it. But yeah, Do we have information that has all of these 11 agencies? They're on stand by the National Guard to cut it off before it starts Because here's another thing that happens. You've got the Trojan Horse of the demonstration. So it were peaceful Protesters. Are they willing to make arrests? When quote unquote peaceful protesters Now barricade streets now start shutting off traffic because that's not peaceful anymore, And that's not legal anymore. Are they willing to not let Kenosha happen in Tosa? And that's a good question, and here's the other side. John Chisum ready to charge these people state charges He's been absent from duty also Don'tthink. He isn't Don'tthink. He isn't afraid of losing his job to some souls appointed district attorney that comes in here. Left wing leaning This is on everybody's mind. Everybody's got their own little piece of the pie here, and I bet you tomorrow. You know, Mayfair is gonna be closed. Welcome back awhile. It's also where you gotta shut down early. We can't even conduct business. So it's going to be interesting to see if hell follows this decision right through a wall. It's awesome when they decide to make arrest here. Yeah, interesting. Will Will Chisholm file state charges because what we have found Is that these days won't file charges in tow. Took Democrats?.

"I can't even do it itself. Funny. Kingsley, Kiki and Christian Kirksey. Where the same guy, admit it. You were one of them, right? Yodo Watto abetted I or better yet, if you knew that there were two guys who had names, it sounded exactly the same. How many of you could have said which one played? What position? How many of you could have done that? Nobody. Well, I mean, I actually could have, but I didn't have it. He wasn't the only reason I do it prior to this is that Christian Kirksey made about half the team's tackles of the first two weeks, and he's the guy that went down. And tie. Summer's finally got to play and you're inside linebacker is always going to make a million tackles. That's the old blank Martinez position and they brought in Kirksey and he's just been spectacular verse. Dewey's got hurt by summer's came in and played great. Kingsley Kiki is the defensive lineman who I had to play a considerable in the because of the Kenny Clarke Situation Self Kingsley, Kiki and Christian Kirksey. So it's like you're like a baby talk in there the other thing because there weren't any preseason games. Some of these guys that either newer in their second year are somewhat unfamiliar to Packer fans. You do see you get the sense that in a couple of areas they have had pretty good, significant roster upgrades. If I had one criticism about the Packer game last night eyes actually wondering whether or not a J. Dylan was inactive. Given the fact that in the short yardage plays they would not bring him in and The coaches credit, LeFlore admitted he probably should have had him in the game in a couple of situations. A. J. Dylan is that Unbelievably powerful. He's still the third string running back, but he could play it. This place where Jones is just running into the line and couldn't get through some of those tackles. I think Probably Dylan should have been in there, but Only three weeks of the season and they you know they don't want a fumble in a short Arctic situation went with experience and so on. All right, the Wauwatosa situation. As I mentioned late last week. Republican state Senator Del Kanga and Republican State Assemblyman Rob Hutton, both of whom have a portion of Wauwatosa. In their districts. Made an offer to Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride. We don't know when the decision is coming, but I could tell you there's just rumblings that it's imminent like today, tomorrow. Still, there was some talk last week, but you're going to get a decision from Milwaukee. Kanda district attorney John Chism's office on whether or not there'll be any criminal charges against Officer MENSA for the Mayfair shooting, and given the fact that that shooting just seemed to be an obvious case, not only of self defense but a police officer doing his job I can't even fathom even with the Democratic district attorney Events that would be charged, But there is certainly fear that Wauwatosa is going to be lit up if that occurs. So quiet. And Hutton offered to intervene and use their connections all the way up to the White House. After all, that they're Republicans to see if you can get Some federal assistance to come into Wauwatosa to be prepared for this. This thing has played itself out, as you might guess, given the fact that the mayor of Alberto's, even though he's elected, nonpartisan, Dennis McBride is a Democrat. I'm going to share with you first. We're going to do this chronologically. I'm going to read the letter, written by Quanah and Hutton read the response from Mayor McBride and then the response to that from Senator Clay. Go So the first piece here was written. Late last week. Dearman McBride In recent months, the Wauwatosa community has been badly disrupted by unrest and riots, ostensibly related to the situation involving Officer Joseph MENSA. This unrest was characterized by disorderly behavior. Lawlessness in a riot outside the home of officer men's and which meant it was harassed, hectored and a shotgun was fired into the home where Children were living. Businesses have been disrupted and the livelihood of their owners threatened. Residential neighborhoods have been upended in many longtime residents of the city of Wauwatosa are left feeling their community is no longer a safe place to live, work and raise a family. It is our understanding that a charging decision in the case of Officer MENSA will be announced stood. This raises the possibility of additional unrest and rioting that would further disrupt the Wauwatosa community and bring our community. One step closer to becoming a national stage for rioting behave riotous behaviour like we've seen in Kenosha. Therefore we are requesting that you immediately reach out to Governor Tony Evers to arrange for National Guard assistance and President Donald Trump to secure federal law enforcement resource is to ensure that the lawlessness that we've seen in the past doesn't further disrupt our commitment and communities and businesses. We are pleased to assist in coordinating these efforts with the potential for agitators about side, the Wauwatosa community and the state of Wisconsin. Joining possible arrest. We expect the decision on Officer Benson. I gained national attention in order to prevent Wauwatosa from descending into chaos and capturing the national spotlight is Kenosha. Did we respectfully ask that a pant plan B Put in place of this time? Deal with potential unrest and riots and again it was signed by Delk. I get robbed Hutton, members of the state legislature. Here's the response. The dentist McBride. Setback. Senators playing and representative Hutton. This is the statement I've been sending out to constituents who apparently have seen the letter that you've sent to them this afternoon Quote since mid July of 2020, the Wauwatosa Police Department. What does the Fire Department Office of Governor Tony Evers have been preparing plans to deal with any unrest that may occur when Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisum Announces whether he will charge Wauwatosa Police Officer Joseph Men with a crime for his shooting of album called while on duty. February 2nd 2020. Earlier this afternoon, I learned that Senator's quite that senator crying, and representative Hutton were planning to send me a letter demanding that the city of Wauwatosa request the immediate mobilization of federal troops and the National Guard even though while it was Wauwatosa is experiencing little unrest, and the district attorney has not issued his decision. I had not received any advanced communication about this from either senator crying a representative Hutton. In fact, neither one of those legislators has ever spoken with me since I became mayor five months ago, when I heard of their intentions, I immediately called their offices and left messages asking them to call me before issuing their letter. I expressed my concern that such a letter issued during a heated political season. Would only heighten tensions in Wauwatosa and lead to more undressed. I'll interject. This has been the concern of McBride all the log ho. What is there anything up? I offered to share the city's preparedness plans with them. Representative Hut never called me and Senator crying and called me a 3:17 P.m. while I was in a meeting that lasted until 4:45 p.m.. They went ahead and set me their letter it four or three without speaking to be It is not certain when the district attorney will issue his decision. Nevertheless, the city of Alberto's is prepared to protect the lives and property of all residents and businesses. Welcome while continuing to protect the First Amendment rights of citizens to engage in peaceful protests, I'll interject that I have seen almost no peaceful protests and Wilma Tosa and almost none that didn't violate laws given the nature of Senator quiting, his representative Hutton's and demands Their failure to call me an advance to discuss their intentions and the timing of their letter. One could conclude that there letter was intended for political purposes..

"Driving up the gun in your lap is not normal behavior driving with a gun in your lap. Is that something somebody does if they really feel as though, that somebody might be shooting them sometime soon. Anyway, The guy has a criminal record. Maybe that's the reason he had to get the stolen gun. I don't know the story continues. Detectives are brought to where the gun was dumped in your 37th and locust authorities recovered a black and gray semi automatic gun wrapped in a bandanna inside a garbage can. In an interview, Smith admitted he had the gun by stealing it from the boyfriend of his child's mom. Smith denied the gun denied having the gun in his lap believed it was between the front driver's seat on the center console. Smith admitted to authorities. The child was not in a car seat. Nor was he buckled into a seat in any way. Smith has been charged with the blacking a child consequences. Great bodily harm. Authorities say they don't know if the child was survive. Know anybody who's taken any kind of gun safety course. Is aware that you're not supposed to have a gun with easy, easy access of a child. In this case, a two year old child in this case a loaded god, the child was not even restrained, meaning the child can reach over and grab anything that they want. The child may die. The child may not die. Certainly the child's quality of life he's going to be Blessed even if the child survives. As I mentioned the child is black. The father is black. Is that black life not matter to anyone. If a police officer Had some sort of warrant. For Smith and tried to pull Smith over and Smith Was reaching for the gun and the police officer shot and ended up striking the two year old child. But the fact that the child was shot because of the neglect of Smith means that not only will you never hear the end of it, my guess is that most of you never even heard about it until right now. This issue of police shootings. Is an exaggerated issue out of proportion. To the number of actual shooting deaths and shooting injuries in which the victims are African American. And therefore I contend that it is insincere. We have yet to say. In 2020. A shooting by a police officer. Of an African American that at least there wasn't an arguable case that the officer might have been acting in a justified fashion. I didn't say that they were justified. No, I said shooting. The George Floyd case was not a shooting that appears to be The case in which the evidence against the officer is the strongest, but that case is now And now has information raised that his lended lended doubt as to whether or not the officer could ever be convicted of anything, given the fact that George Flight was claiming that he couldn't breathe long before the knee was ever on the deck. Meaning he was yelling this out for the longest time, meaning the officer would have had every reason to believe that that Floyd was making it up again. I don't know if that's the case. The case has not been litigated, but we have rushed to judgment on this because there is an agenda whenever there was a police officer involved. Furthermore, The reason that I contend That the Explosion in anger and criticism that occurs in the rare and yes, it is rare circumstance of a police officer shooting an African American. Out of the all the numbers of shootings of African Americans that we have on ly. A tiny fraction are shootings committed by police officers. Tiny fraction. That it is exaggerated, and it is for reasons that have nothing to do with black lives, and for that matter, nothing to do with race. Because, and I believe that the Wauwatosa case proves this. Even when the police officer himself or herself is African American. The reaction is the same in while the toast of the police officer who has been in the cross hairs of the protesters, officer MENSA is African American. As you know, if you are elicited by program for months, the media refused to report that fact. You can go back over months of stories on television or in the newspaper and you do not see a mention of Officer MENSA. It wasn't until very recently that they even started apprentice picture. When you put Inspector you could see that he is African American. I mentioned that I did a little bit of a test several weeks ago in which I asked the number of people You know what race officer Officer the Tosa officers or Officer MENSA and no one did it Among the people I ask for several police officers are retired police officers, and none of them know they all simply assumed that he was white based on the way the story had been reported, and the allegations that the shootings were somehow racist, given the fact that officer men, says African American to suggest that those shootings had had a racist component to it. Is obviously bazaar. But given the fact that here in Wisconsin, there seems to be an even greater level of anger over an African American officer involved in the shooting. I do not believe that this has anything to do. With the race of police officers that this is not a protest of white cop shooting African Americans because they seem to be even angrier when it's an African American top that does the shooting..

"Especially since we have a photo of the guy that did it. It was a grainy photo, and his face is covered up the mask and the whole thing. It's hard to get a read on anything but boy, people just know things. And if more than one person was involved in somebody said, we're going to go and get this guy. Somebody out there knows something now it is very possible. This has nothing to do with politics could just be Milwaukee has murder problem right now. That is out of control. It is unbelievable how bad it is. We're going to talk about it a little bit later out of the program. This could have been a robbery. This could have been an interpersonal problems. Somebody's gotta hang up with a family member. It could be a great ex girlfriend. It could be anything. I'm not going to Go out there and tell people that he was killed because of his political beliefs. But many people fear that he had he Waas and I don't want this story for gotten, and I want to remind people that that reward is out there. Now to Alberto's. This is another story in which the media just wants to pretend it didn't happen. The near riot that occurred at the home. Of the girlfriend of Wauwatosa Police officer Joseph Men, said the man who has been the target Of obnoxious protests for months. Following the shooting of the killing, rather of George Floyd in Minneapolis. In which he suffocated. Well, you all know how George Fly Dad when we have these anti police protest. Suddenly they came upon the case of officer men, said Wauwatosa, who months earlier in his third fatal police shooting. Kill the man who was running with a stolen loaded stolen gun. Into Mayfair Mall and turned and shot it, Officer MENSA before our instruments are shot him. He had 36 rounds of ammunition and an extended magazine. And there was every reason to believe that he may have been intended to go into the ball to commit mass murder. We don't know that for sure. But he's running into the mall with a gun with 36 bullets. But any 36 bullets When you're going into Mayfair, you might argue. Why do you need even what? But he was part of a mob that was causing a disturbance there any way they want to fire Officer MENSA for acting heroically and saving his own life in that situation, and he has been harassed ever since. This came to a head Saturday night. He often stays with his girlfriend, who was a police officer in Milwaukee. She lives in Wauwatosa. In which protest is including some well known individuals. I'm told that Bon Mais was there. I don't know this, but I'm told it on. We know that state representative David Bowen was there because He's spoken to the media about what he said happened at the event. A number of people went and stopped at a store. We think it's a target and what toilet paper and other things that started vandalizing the yard. Of officer men's his girlfriend. During this time officer men's that came out to see what was going on, or perhaps to tell them to cut it out. It was during this time that objects were thrown through a window and the window was smashed. With MENSA and his girlfriend sustained some injuries. The girlfriend is posted on social media, the some of the injuries, scrapes and bruises that she sustained during this It was during this period of time that a shotgun blast went off. Officer Menses said it was by his ear. But the shotgun shell did, and the blast actually did end up of His second. Shot that occurred. Was this an attempted murder? Was it a warning shot? Was it somebody again? I don't know. I wasn't there. What we do know is that Baba Tosa Police are treating this very, very seriously. We also know that this has been the end result of a decision that was made by a number of leaders in Wauwatosa. Fort Unfortunately, include the mayor and certainly include Alderman Heather. Cool. And certainly include state representative Robin Vining, who has been a mouthpiece for the anti police agitators in Wauwatosa. In which they have fueled in fueled in fuel That made it clear that you can do anything you want to officer meant so anything you want to it. Backers of the police anything you want to a cop in Tosa and get away with it, And it led to this At the very least, What you have here is criminal damage to property and vandalism. I can't and Paul and I can't just decide that We're going to go toilet paper up some house in while we're told so tonight and then I can't grab a brick and throw it through somebody's window. We would be in trouble if we did that. And if we targeted an African American person and did that Because we had a problem with him, we would be in realty rubble for it. In some of the white people that were involved in this protest who trashed the home of a mixed race couple. Need to confront what they did here. In addition to that there was a situation in which a gun I don't know if the gun was legally owned or not. But there was a gun, a shotgun that was brought to the sea and it was fired. This could be attempted murder. It certainly could be. Reckless endangerment. It could be a lot of things. On the program two days ago. While we're toast, the police chief, Very Weber told me that the police have determined Who it is that fired the gun. To my knowledge. This is not reported in the mainstream media. And I wonder why that is. That is a major revelation. Police know who the shooter is. There has been very little interest from anyone in the media and following up on this story, I suspect because they fear that we may find out just who did this, and we fight may find out just how violent some of the people have been passing themselves off as peaceful and nonviolent actually are. On the other hand, the about of information other than that revelation for Chief Webber that's come out of Wauwatosa about this investigation has been diddly squat. I believe that while we toast the city officials have been trying to quiet this investigation. I believe that they're micromanaging the police department here. I've asked the city manager James R. Shambo, has he been controlling the information from the Police department? He has not responded to that question. But they're certainly has not been a free flow of information. No, I grant it's an act of criminal investigation. When you have an active investigation, and you're still questioning people, you tend not to release a lot of information. I want to know if there's been an arrest. If they've identified this individual is a shooter. Has that person been arrested or not? I don't have an answer. They say that they have the individual identified. I can tell you that there are indications that they are going through cell phone, not only video but phone records to see who said what? And who did what? Which led up to this? If this wass A plan where several people said we're going to get MENSA. And there is some telephone type video telephone type messaging of this. This is a very interesting thing for police to pursue. I realized that there are a lot of liberals and a lot of the media and a lot of people in Wauwatosa, including Rob inviting, and Heather. Cool in that crowd who want this just all go away and act like this is just another little protest that okay, I got a little too raucous. You had a gunshot fired in a home that was smashed up with its window busted out because some people don't like the two people who live in the home. And it's a serious matter. And it needs to have serious consequences without regard to whether or not prominent local protesters and some prominent local politicians were involved in this scene or not. Again. I don't know who fired the shot. But we need to stay on top of the story, and we need to be aware that there was a reason why the media seems a lot more interested in just about every single story out there. More so than, say, this one and the Burnell tram terminal murder It's 5 22 It was talk 11 30 w. It's time for rapid traffic.

"Is the Mark Belling late afternoon show on news talk, 11 30 W. Said. They're talking about all the grocery chains that have opened in the Milwaukee area over the last Two years. The shakeouts already occurring hours has been open for. I think only two years and they're closing the store in downtown Milwaukee. This is a popular chain from Madison, the open their store in the I mean, they had everything go right. They moved into the 7 77 building. They thought that let's take advantage of the zillions of people who worked downtown to grab a goal kind of thing. Decency. I soar well. Every office and dot building in downtown Milwaukee is closed. Northwestern Mutual Shut down. That apartment building isn't full like that store was close to a convenience store. You guys parked right in front of could run in and grab my stuff. Be five feet from the door. And so I just think a lot of grocery teens are going to go under, especially if you go to this kind of delivery boat. That a lot of them just don't have the kind of Warehousing and product selection, and they're just not set up to be able to compete in that environment. Anyway, As I indicated, we're gonna turn our attention now to the developments. They have surrounded the situation that occurred in Wauwatosa. On Saturday night and shortly we're going to be joined by the wall, but does the police chief Gerry Weber. For those of you who haven't closely followed this. There have obvious I won't give you all the background because most of you know the story. There's been ongoing protests in Wauwatosa even before the George Floyd situation over this, that and the other thing and They have focused locally on the case of Officer Joseph MENSA, who is the police officer who shot and killed a man who, armed with a stolen gun was part of a group that was causing a disturbance and running toward Mayfair Mall. While armed with that stolen gun. He also had 36 rounds of ammunition and an extended magazine. And according to the police investigation, he fired a shot that officer men sub and protesters have been going after Officer men ever since The wall photos the city council. Recommended that he his employment be terminated in the fire and police Commission has suspended him. As I had predicted. This is not satisfied the protesters who have disrupted government meetings who made wild statements at a public meeting at hard Park, and then on Saturday, I took their protest directly to the home. Off officer Men's his girlfriend, who is a police officer in Milwaukee. Where Officer Benson Wass and a situation developed in which Officer MENSA says that he was shot at Before we talk to Chief Webber. I want to deal with two new developments today. The first A letter that was sent today by Congressman Jim Sense it better. Guys, you probably know this city election today to replace time is the sense of better who's been in the house for a long, long time Republican primary Today is between Clift Temple and Scott Fitzgerald and the Republican candidate for that seed is going to be determined in today's election. But sensitive writer is still there since it brothers. This thick includes portions, but not all of Wauwatosa. He sent the following letter to me, your dentist McBride of Wauwatosa today, Dear Mayor McBride. I write to you today concerning the deteriorating security and policing in Wauwatosa. The protests, which may have started peacefully have been growing ever more violent and the event Saturday night outside the residence of Officer Joseph Mintz have required a meat require immediate leadership and strong action from you. And the elected leaders of Wauwatosa first allow me to be clear that I am and always will be supportive of American citizens. First Amendment rights, having said that ever since the death of George Flight in Minneapolis and the protests and the protests the incident sparked There has been a push by community leaders throughout the country to weaken, defund and abolish police departments in several cities. Locally, Officer MENSA has become the poster child for this movement due to his three officer involved shooting incidents. Officer MENSA has dedicated his life to protecting our community and has been cleared by the Milwaukee County District attorney's office of two of the three shootings in which he has been involved.

Wauwatosa PD denies claims Officer Mensah provoked protesters

"Background because most of you know the story. There's been ongoing protests in Wauwatosa even before the George Floyd situation over this, that and the other thing and They have focused locally on the case of Officer Joseph MENSA, who is the police officer who shot and killed a man who, armed with a stolen gun was part of a group that was causing a disturbance and running toward Mayfair Mall. While armed with that stolen gun. He also had 36 rounds of ammunition and an extended magazine. And according to the police investigation, he fired a shot that officer men sub and protesters have been going after Officer men ever since The wall photos the city council. Recommended that he his employment be terminated in the fire and police Commission has suspended him. As I had predicted. This is not satisfied the protesters who have disrupted government meetings who made wild statements at a public meeting at hard Park, and then on Saturday, I took their protest directly to the home. Off officer Men's his girlfriend, who is a police officer in Milwaukee. Where Officer Benson Wass and a situation developed in which Officer MENSA says that he was shot at Before we talk to Chief Webber. I want to deal with two new developments today. The first A letter that was sent today by Congressman Jim Sense it better. Guys, you probably know this city election today to replace time is the sense of better who's been in the house for a long, long time Republican primary Today is between Clift Temple and Scott Fitzgerald and the Republican candidate for that seed is going to be determined in today's election. But sensitive writer is still there since it brothers. This thick includes portions, but not all of Wauwatosa. He sent the following letter to me, your dentist McBride of Wauwatosa today, Dear Mayor McBride. I write to you today concerning the deteriorating security and policing in Wauwatosa. The protests, which may have started peacefully have been growing ever more violent and the event Saturday night outside the residence of Officer Joseph Mintz have required a meat require immediate leadership and strong action from you. And the elected leaders of Wauwatosa first allow me to be clear that I am and always will be supportive of American citizens. First Amendment rights, having said that ever since the death of George Flight in Minneapolis and the protests and the protests the incident sparked There has been a push by community leaders throughout the country to weaken, defund and abolish police departments in several cities. Locally, Officer MENSA has become the poster child for this movement due to his three officer involved shooting incidents. Officer MENSA has dedicated his life to protecting our community and has been cleared by the Milwaukee County District attorney's office of two of the three shootings in which he has been involved. The third incident is still under review. Despite the decisions by the Milwaukee County D. A. You're common council passed a resolution calling for the termination of officer menses employment with the Wauwatosa Police Department.

"J. Just when you think a story can't get weirder, it does now What is going on in in Wauwatosa has been an absolute in my opinion travesty for the last couple months, and it's happened with the blessing of the mayor. It's happened with the tacit support of the fire and police commission out there. And it's happened with the overt support members of the Common Council. We all know the story. There's AH, There's a Wauwatosa Police officer's name is Joseph MENSA. He's black, and I always just mention that because it takes the racial element of the story. In the last five years, he has been involved in three separate shootings. The first to have been thoroughly investigated by locals and federal authorities, and they found to be justified. 1st 1 was a guy who was attacking officer MENSA with a sort that the 2nd 1 with somebody who was in like a parking lot wall with Kosa had a loaded hand gun next to him, apparently reached for the gun officer MENSA shot. The third situation happened in February. Security guards had lost control of the situation in Mayfair. They called the police There's a 17 year old who apparently was according to the police in possession of a stolen handgun, and he fired it at the police, including Officer MENSA. Officer MENSA returned fire Killed Kit Unfortunate story, but The family. Of the 17 year old maintains that didn't have a gun didn't shoot. Okay, Wallet, Cosa Police have said. They are very confident that officer mince is going to be clear, All right, But the matter has been under investigation for months and months. I don't know why the district attorney is dragging his feet, but that's another story here. But regardless even though There is no basis at least this time for finding any wrongdoing. You've had the mop, and it's a small number of people who have demanded that officer Mintz would be charged. They've demanded that he be fired. They've made numerous attempts to close down Mayfair and have succeeded. They've been allowed to do that, because the police department's essentially been ordered to stand down. And they've been conducting these loud, violent these loud protests demanding all this action against Officer mints that that is the backdrop of this So what happens over the weekend is the mop and we're not talking about hundreds or thousands of people were talking about the usual suspects and in it's like 50 or 60 people who were doing some of these tactics in Milwaukee, and we're allowed to get away with them. So they decide they're going to go out to that. The place where officer mental lives with his His girlfriend in Wallich Osa. Now beforehand, there's all these fit. There's Facebook stuff with some of the protest organizers there at this target store, and they're buying tons of toilet paper. So the idea is, we're going to go out to this house. And we're going to. We're going toe toilet paper that house and if you watch videos of this, it's it's just It's just amazing because there's videos of this yellow is people with these rolls of toilet paper. They're throwing toilet paper into the trees and things like that. It's it's like I don't know a cheerleader initiation in for a freshman cheerleader who's made the team in high school, But these air supposedly adults who are out there in their screaming and they're trespassing on the property, etcetera, etcetera. A couple of these people come armed to this. You do not come armed to a peaceful protest. I'm sorry, but but they're just they. What's happened is you have these protesters that were allowed to do this outside of former Chief morale is his house. They've been allowed to just do this. They've been allowed to close down Mayfair Mall in the wallet. Toast. Authorities have not done anything about them. So they're more and more emboldened. So the story that the police Tel Is that what happens is you've got all these people that are running onto the his property there. Throw in the toilet paper. They're screaming. They're chanting, etcetera. He goes out to engage them and try to calm them down at which point in time, he says. Officer MENSA says he's attacked and somebody Somebody ends up firing a shotgun blast through his back door. All right, brings us to state representative David Bowie, who has been on the scene and a lot of these thieves different protests. Rohan, who admits he was there. But he didn't see the shooting. He goes on TV. And he says, Well, I'm looking at this story in today's, T and J for that officer ments that came out with a level of aggression that did not match any of the actions of the folks that were there. By the way, there are videos. You could see all these people running in there throwing stuff and they're screaming and they're yelling. People were there to advocate for changes What Bowen says the same way they've done it. For the last 70 days, Police say about 60 people surrounded the property and vandalized it and his men to try to talk to the crowd. He was physically assaulted before someone fired a shot at the back door. Um Bowen, who says it was Joseph MENSA that decided to pull the trigger on somebody else's firearm. According to Bowen, who acknowledges he was there but says he didn't see this. MENSA took somebody else's shotgun, released the safety and pulled the trigger and shot him still shut the door himself. You just You can't make this stuff up. Bowen says he didn't see the actual shooting, but claims to know people. He who who did, he said. What he did see was this before men trying to sic his dog on the protesters and him used pepper spray on them all in response to the protesters throwing toilet paper. All right now, First of all, the Wauwatosa place is going to be coming out with a statement. But they've essentially said that that what with the state representatives saying really doesn't hold water. They're going to go into all the details. If you watch the video of this, it's very apparent that you have a group that is completely And totally out of control, and I don't know. I mean, I started off as a federal prosecutor. The idea that somebody goes out right? Somebody's brought a shotgun to a peaceful protest, and the target of the protest is going to I don't know removed, take off the safety and pulled the trigger on that other person. Shotgun seems to be a bit of a stretch, but that's that's not really the aspect of this, that that kind of caught my attention. At some point in time. You would hope that elected officials Would act with a degree of maturity. You would expect that people who are elected to office would I don't know, have more impulse control than that of a fruit fly. You would expect that people who are elected to office, which would at least try to pretend to be the grown ups in the room. So if you watch some of the Facebook stuff that was out there, and this is again it's fueled by social media. You have some of these activists there at the target. We're buying toilet paper. We wait, Wait till you see what's next. We're gonna convict boy over here. All right, so they're going out and I think everybody would agree. That whether the intention Wass to beat up Officer MENSA and blow a shotgun round through his back door that the intention was we're going to go out to this private residential house and we're going to take silly string and retake toilet paper and we're going to. We're going to tp the house and we're going to just run all over the property that that's what we're going to do in the name of peaceful protest. All right. So everybody acknowledged, is that they were out there to vandalize the house, right. Everybody acknowledges that and this state representative David Bowen. He's out there with him. Okay, let's let's put aside that the shooting and all that sort of stuff. I mean violence or not. What is a state representative? Do it be doing there in the first place? I mean, most people Even state representatives learned to stop toilet papering houses after their junior year in high school, And yet that that's what's going on out there and get a I think I think once the whole details of.

"And you weren't supposed to go on to that construction site and climb into the basement of the house and so lot that was going up. But, you know, kids would do that. It was sort of harmless other than I suppose we could break our necks. But this is in the air in which parents didn't seem to care of kids broke their necks is literally wasn't I remember that, like three or four days in a row that where is this? You know, it's usually like some neighbor chase you off, and then we'd be mortified right away. There's this holosuite and we kept going in there and we kept going. I don't know what we're doing. If you just look out at the plywood or something, or another, maybe somebody tried Tio. Should be down to the basement was etcetera. And nobody was telling us to go away. I don't know who did what but somebody. Then it decided to break something. I'm really Vega, who? I know it was a bay. And then that, of course, scared. It's because, oh, my God. Now we might actually get in trouble. The reason that we broke something was we had to keep upping the ante that we're getting any kind of a reaction here, So when they keep showing up, they're not going to stop showing up at all. They're going to up the ante. And what happened Saturday night when they were screaming and yelling at the top of their lugs at Officer MENSA lives with his Girlfriend. The story has been described as his residents of girlfriends, residents. I believe she owns the house. But If resides, there means Often. Is there overnight. He lives there. And It's a neighborhood of relatively small size houses that are close together. I'm not going to give you the address. It's been reported in the media. But I'm not going to give you the address. You can find it easily enough. I'll just say that it's Around 100 street in that general area. Anyway. With them screaming at the top of their lungs right in his front yard. Officer MENSA went out to like a man talk to them. Getting power away. He walked out unarmed. Member even though he's a suspended police officer is still in American citizen. He has a right to carry a weapon. He didn't And I know I didn't because I know exactly what happened. What went on this, but I know exactly what's happening here. Even though nobody else had. The media wants to tell you what's happening, But I know what's happening here. I'm not stupid. I know what's happening here. He went out to talk to him like a man. He was very reasonable. I like that. About this. A mixed race group of agitators confronting a young African American. He's got people in the house is coming out here wondering why they keep yelling and screaming outside his house. It was at this point, according to various witnesses that the object started getting hurled. There was a least one window that was busted out. Mrs has meant that was going back into the house in which he realized he was getting nowhere. According to Officer MENSA. A shotgun. Either Schell or pellet move very close to his ear. His girlfriend reported that there were multiple gunshots. Wauwatosa police said there was one shot. As best I can tell a number of firecrackers or shot off and then a shotgun went off weight, which might be the confusion as the harmony shots are being fired. But it's somebody who lives in Milwaukee and has heard these protests all the time. The shooting off fireworks constantly, and one of the reasons protesters shoot off fireworks is because it sounds like gunshots. It freaks people off. I know exactly what was happening here. They were hoping that men said would pull out a gun and shoot himself, not shoot himself. Shoot, shoot someone himself. They want to get men said it kills somebody else or shoot at somebody else. And there are people there that we're armed, ready to shoot back. They were trying to provoke him. That's what this wass While so they shooting off all for all the fire crackers all at once to try to get him to. Oh, my God, They're shooting! Get me pull out his gun. But he didn't have a gun with him. He was smart enough to know that he's not right now being denied the rights of rights of an American citizen and being able to defend himself because for defending himself earlier situations professionally they're trying to destroy his life. And it was after this, that there was a police response and the crowd dispersed. There was essentially no police presence so far as I can tell. During the time that any of this was going on, because if they're wass The police would have separated Officer MENSA from these individuals that were agitating. One has a right to protest on sidewalks, but one does not have a right to disturb the peace. Furthermore, in almost every community in the United States, if you're going to have it, organized protests you're supposed to get a permit in advance. Didn't have any of these things. They were standing on the grass. They're doing everything under the sun. And the next thing you know, objects are being hurled. And as I say a gun was fired. I don't know if they were trying to hit him or not. As they say it sounds to me like they were trying to do some provoking, but maybe they were trying to hit him. Don't know. Things can happen. I don't think I'll name the guy, but there's a guy who's had various issues. I have got a name. Why not? Yeah, Over the years have been a lot of problems with Frank. Jude and Frank has had some issues. I think Coping with life. And aside long after the incident in which he was beaten up at the police party in Milwaukee, and so on and lying after he blew through the money from his settlement, and so on. They were a couple of weird disturbances that would occur at the house that Frank lived with with his girlfriend. There was an odd thing at South Ranger Frank was making allegations there, but odd standoffs that the police etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. I mean, some people just They're not wired right and there could be issues. There was a standoff recently in the area where a person there was a domestic situation and for hours the police waited him out outside. That can happen anywhere where an isolated case somebody's having a bad day, and they get unhinged. They make threats. This could happen in any neighborhood anywhere. This was not that.

"I mean, it's a month I get why she's unhappy. I get why she's upset, but at the same time I mean, at some point in time, don't we need to stand up and say there is this thing in this country called due process and you don't you don't hang somebody out to dry and say, Oh, my gosh. She should be fired. He should be prosecuted. If the facts don't bear that up, and I guess it is disappointing to me that you have people in Wauwatosa. He's already been suspended. You've got members of the common Council, including some people who are just flat out kooks who were demanding that we don't care with the investigation says We've got to get rid of this. This guy. Well, if if all he did was returned Fire with a 17 year old who was shooting at him and others. How in the world are you justified? In trying to fire him our number 85561616 20 The That's the AC unit mortgage talking text line. Look, I don't know if Officer MENSA is a good cop or bad cop. I don't know whether the shooting is going to determine to be justified or not, but I do know that in situations like this, where At least at first blush. It appears that that everything was done. Everything was done. Okay, how you can just give into the demands of a mob to fire somebody and charge him And I mean here is part of the problem. It's out there. My guess is the district attorney is going to. It's some point in time and hopefully the near future going to come out with a position paper that says we don't think that there's any basis for issuing charges. That's my guests don't know it for sure. And all that's going to do is further inflame the mob. That is out there. So I mean, I hope authorities in Wauwatosa are ready to deal with this, but I guess my question is, Is it fair is what is happening to Officer MENSA now fair and I don't know him. I've never talked to him. I'm just thinking that you have an officer if the facts are correct, who get shot at by 17 year old with a stolen gun and returns fire? And now he's going to be the bad guy in this If that's true, if it's not true, and you know, sure if this turns out to be a bad shooting, yes. Firing? Yes, prosecuted, but until you know that, how can you take this position? 85561616 20. We discuss in a moment. Don't go.

"Never been easier. Just how Alexa Google Home or Syria on home, Bob to play 11 30 ws on her radio, then sit back and enjoy the excellence. Nobody s unmarked Belling late afternoon show Gonna share one more piece of information about Officer MENSA is we finally start the five o'clock hour, which believe it or not, is that yet started We'll talk about the situation bobbing. The attempts to go after Chief Morales and the latest ethical problems of Stephen Do about David Goss, the head of the Fire and Police Commission, and An individual whose character is open to question. I want to share the first from the audience mark. I'm going to try to keep this is brief to the point. It's possible. I'm a 35. Well, I won't go into much more. I've I live in Wauwatosa this afternoon, he said this yesterday. I got a frantic call from my younger brother screaming that he is surrounded by a group of protesters that hard park and he is in fear for his life. A little context on my brother. He is. He mentions his name, and about 10 years ago, his life was turned upside down when he was diagnosed with epilepsy, which was followed shortly by a diagnosis for a degenerative bone disease. He's a great guy to be Iran but due to put two brain surgeries to try to eliminate control the seizures he could be very impulsive and can act inappropriately. So back to today, I've known to me there was a group of protesters gathered in the back parking lot area of hard Park and my impulsive but well meaning brother wandered upon this demonstration. A few words were exchanged and my brother yelled, all lives matter as they yelled, Black lives matter back! This is the point that he called me. I live fairly close to the area, so I was able to get there. Quick. Thank God. This group was made up of mostly docile people who were able to defuse the situation in the short time between the phone call in my arrival to the park. On my way to the park. I immediately dialed 911 believing that my brother was about to be brutally beaten by an angry mob a situation that we have seen played out many times across the country. I alerted the dispatcher to the situation and that I was a concealed carry permit holder who was armed. I expressed my concern about what? What might what I might arrive defied She took my name and number as well as my brothers, and she said she would call him. We hang up the phone with no more info Exchange. I arrived at the park a few minutes later and was grateful that the whole situation was already pretty calm. What eyewitnesses, a group of people, maybe 30 to 50 mixed crowd of protesters. They were smoking marijuana and having for lack of a better term a party. I did have a short, simple conversation with a few of the protesters and then left with my brother. As I was leaving some 30 minutes after I called 911 I noticed the Wauwatosa car rolled to the park. What I got home. I called the Tosa nonemergency number to express my concern that was such a potentially volatile situation. There wasn't an immediate police response. The dispatcher told me that the Tosa Common Council on the Fire and Police commissioner ordered the Tosa Police department. Not to interfere in any way with throat with with with BLM protests of protesters. She told me that on multiple occasions, protesters have even assembled in front of the police station and engaged in all types of illegal and destructive activity. Knowing the police can't do anything. This, of course, is all true if you've been following, they said Wauwatosa. I agree with all of your set of it's that things will get wild in Wauwatosa before they do in Milwaukee, especially with this finalist leadership that our elected officials have been exhibiting. So anyway. You have a situation in which the guy says I have a gun and I'm going over. The hard part because my brother is being threatened by protesters. My brother is being threatened by protest is you need to get over there and it took 30 minutes. Not people can overreact on time. When you call 9 11 Maybe it wasn't 30. Maybe it only seems like it to him, but it wasn't an instantaneous response. And you folks in Wauwatosa better be aware that it's not going to be an instantaneous response. The last thing any Wauwatosa police department officer wants to do is respond to these protests and deal with trouble with the protest is because they are in a situation where whatever it is that they do is going to make things worse. You have also had members of the City Council publicly saying that toast the police have been harassing the protesters. So they're going to take a pretty much hands off situation. The point I want to make about this particular person who contacted me while I empathize with a situation that he's in. Once again you're gonna have people that Wauwatosa wide and cry and complain when the police know don't do anything to these protesters when it affects them and their own situation, But they were nowhere to be found speaking up before this decision was made by Dennis McBride in the City Council. You got the police department and put police officers. I notice that all you have to do to get a cop fired is that protesters comment and yell and scream in our face. It's you people Edouard toasted have allowed your city to begin this process of degenerating into what is going to be the case. According to the guy it again. Maybe he's exaggerated, but they're smoking pot right out in the open park. He did acknowledge that they weren't by the time he got there. His brother was no longer in danger. So the point of credibility I think he has is he didn't say they were shoving. My brother around already think he was acknowledging it had calmed down, but it bothers him that the police didn't respond immediately. And I got to respond immediately when there's protests in Wauwatosa, because that's the direction they be given. So unless you want to reverse that direction, you're gonna have to change your political leadership in some of you and Wilder toasts are going to have to start speaking out about the fact that you have empowered mob rule. You have a police department, whether rightly or wrongly, that is terrified of doing its job and you have individual citizens who are risk of being harmed. We're doing nothing wrong themselves because the protesters realised that they write now are in charge of all a Tosa. When you choose people like Heather Cool to run your city. You're going to get the same response that America is going to get when they chose people like O C to run our country. Let me very quickly I way past time here to share this. I got to get this all impressed me. I'll pick up the time in a moment. Mark. I just wanted to say that I'm thankful for your coverage of the issues facing Wauwatosa right now on specifically the officer MENSA case.

"officer mensa" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN

"And they singled him out even though He was cleared in all of the shootings, and the 3rd 1 is still under some review, but the first who he was cleared. I believe they wanted to get him because they just hated the notion of a black op. I also believe that the media's coverage of Officer MENSA deliberately Satur ties his race. As you know, I have been making a big point of this on my show for a couple of weeks. I started this two or three weeks ago, I did a segment on the show in which I mentioned that I tried an experiment of my own life. I talked about 10 or 15 people that I know. And I chose mostly people that are kind of aware of the news. And as it would happen, two of them are former police officers. In other words, who would kind of know? You know the cops are they got said they they all know what another And I asked them I didn't tip off right away. I ask them. Do you know about Joe MENSA? Not much. You know what he looks like? Up when you asked what someone looks like, out of persons black you that you know, that's one of the things you'd say. None of the volunteers and then I ask that you know, he's black. Not one person knew. The sky has been covered as much as anybody's name in southeastern Wisconsin over the last number of months. Yet none of the people so I just Got to get I get anecdotal evidence is bad. But these are people that I know and they weren't all asked. Nobody heard me ask the question other just it independently over two or three days and I mentioned another program. After it ended on the program. A number of people who said to me Before you said that I had no idea. And I've had people tell me that they have been asked a bunch of people themselves. Did you know that the officer from Wildwood host is black, and no one knew? If you go back and Google the months worth of news stories Almost no stories mentioned his race and those that do it's buried. And if you go and watch any of the television stories over the last number of months, they never show his picture. At his pictures, Never in the newspaper. In fact, as of last week, it's changed now, and it's going to change because of the go fund beep age and the fact that it's getting news coverage if you Google Joseph Mansa and then Googled on the tab on Google that says images None would come up of news stories. You'd find a couple of social media things and so on. You know how easy it is to get a photo of a cop? Not to mention the fact that he's been on duty. All you have to do is have an officer go take a picture. They didn't want to do it. They didn't want to put the photo in, and they did not include that element in the story. Including the element of that in the story changes the narrative. There has been an implication without saying it that these shootings were racist. Obviously, when one finds out the race of the police officer, you might still question the shootings. But you can't claim a racial motivation unless Joseph Manta is an odd individual that simply wants to kill people of color, even though he is one himself. Which is a very hard story to sell. So I think he could make the claim for racial discrimination along with wrongful termination. And his potential gain is enormous, because, remember when you sue one of the criteria that can be used in awarding damages is loss of future income. And I think his full tension of work is a police officer. Is shot, then add. Also, if he had served his full. He's a younger man served his full career. And while what toasted the value of his pension at the time that it's over I don't want to raise anybody's taxes. But I think you people and what toasts are going to lose millions that I'm glad. But your community did to this guy in your name You deserve to pay for and you're all they begin paying when they get when they get their next thing done, which is to get may get first of all, they're going to get the cops out of Mayfair for good. And once the cops are out of Mayfair for good, it's open season on Mayfair, and that's the beginning of the end of a pier. Sense officer, men said was it's suspended pending firing. The number of people in Wauwatosa, who have angrily complained about this contacted me. People who know Officer MENSA know his family. I know several people who contacted me the part of the he had his church. There are people who know his I believe it's the fiance. I think he's engaged. I don't think they're married yet that know her. Everybody just raves about what wonderful people they are in great family and Tremendous character. And I've talked to a few police officers about You know, it is kind of weird. Three shootings, three separate things and The answer I get is just the same one all the all the time. Because he's proactive. He's not one of the ones that lays back. You know you're at the mall. He sees the guy running toward the ball with the gun. It's because he got out there quickly that he was front in line to see him. So he was the one that told them to Drop the gun. And when that guy turns around and shoots at him, therefore, he's in the one to shoot back after the guy shot at him. The same thing with regard to the drug deal in the park, where Anderson was sitting in the park in his car. This is an observant officer on patrol who notices this guy that sitting in the car and sitting in the car and sitting in the car and sitting in the car. In other words, he was aware He saw. So And I guess I spoke too soft to officers about this because you know, most police officers will go their entire career without shooting the service revolver and A statement was, Yeah, it's weird, but there's nothing about any of them. That made it appear to be trigger happy because on their own, all the shootings appear..
