The Milwaukee shooting was claimed racist but the dude was running away with a stolen gun, pointed it at police, and was running at an officer. They set the city ablaze for it....

The man who was shot and killed by a Milwaukee police officer on Saturday – an incident which sparked a night of violet protests – is seen on body camera footage with a loaded gun in his hand, officials said at a Sunday news conference.

Sylville K. Smith, 23, was identified Sunday as the subject of a Saturday afternoon traffic stop that turned deadly when Smith allegedly ran from officers and then turned toward one with a gun in his hand.


Body camera footage the police are still refusing to release despite the mayor having called for its swift release. If a community has zero reason to trust the police and the police are saying "We've seen the evidence, trust us. No you can't see it." even you can hopefully see how this sort of thing might turn into a problem.

These situations are not one off things. Its not like these communities are perfectly happy with great relationships with the police that just suddenly flipped out. We're watching the culmination of years if not generations of problems with mistreatment at the hands of law enforcement.

Its easy to sit outside the situation and render judgement without historical context. But thats not going to fix any of the problems nor prevent them from happening again.
