WATCH: Furious Homeowners Clash With BLM In Residential Wisconsin Neighborhoods (VIDEO)
Riots have erupted in residential neighborhoods of Wauwatosa Wisconsin as Black Lives Matter protesters destroyed property and a homeowner came out to reason with the mob.
A resident called out to the mob near his home, “You don’t even know. You don’t even know who they would supports what you’re doing and doesn’t. And you’re doing it in my yard? You have no idea. You know from many Democrats, how many MPS teachers, union members, other people that could support you live on this street. And you’re gonna ride through my year? Show some respect.”
The resident continued, “Alright, so did they push you here into my yard? Did they push you here in the yard? Police. Police your protest. Which I know you’re all capable of. We can all have differences. You have no idea who supports you and who doesn’t. Please push this away. Away.”
The resident then stated to the man filming, “I own a firearm. I own multiple firearms. I didn’t come out here with a firearm. I saw a man in my grass. Hundreds of people coming through. I would have been entitled through Castle Law to protect my house if I felt it was threatened. I came out here in a non-threatening manner and I have to have people disrespecting run up here, trying to get a viral video to try to sow division. That’s all that does. Every time everyone runs up with a camera in your face. The conversation stops. That’s why we’re so divided. We can’t even get to square one.”
He continued, “I’ve got to have people here that look at me and mock me because I own a house, having no idea the struggle that I went through to get this house. How I haven’t had a vacation in 14 years so I could save up after having a bankruptcy, my wife having a bankruptcy, adopting a child with special needs. Either they don’t care about it-. And the ends, whatever they do, the ends justify the means and that’s the problem. You cannot just have an ends justify the means. You have to be able to talk to each other and you’ve got to have a starting point on both sides. We’re not even-. We’re here.”
A BLM activist responded to the resident, “I just want to let you know. Bottom of my heart, honest to God. That’s not what we’re about.”
The resident, “I said. You know what?”
The activist responded, “That’s not what we about.”
The resident continued, “He came onto the wrong property. You know?”
“I whispered in his ear in the tree, I said, dude. I said-,” the activist responded.
“Because I’m a gun owner,” the resident stated back.
The activist responded, “Yes. They know. They know.”
The resident told the activist, “I left my gun inside.”
“That’s what I told him,” the activist responded.
The resident then said, “Gonna try to appeal to everybody here which is what works.”
The activist was confused and asked, “Which would what work?”
“Which is what I’d like to see is more this,” as he points to himself communicating with the activist.
The activist understood and said, “Yeah. I whispered in his ear. I said, ‘dude legally he could shoot you. I just wanted to let you know.”
“And you know what? That was in the back of my head and you know what I said? I don’t want to be the next damn national story because the next national story would’ve been me and him,” the resident thought of what could’ve happened.
The activist stated, “Right. But you would have been within your legal right, thought.”
The resident questioned, “But who would have supported, who would have supported me in my legal right? Or when what I have been another white guy that killed another black kid right?”
The activist said, “No, because we know the law.”
The resident came to a conclusion to the man, “You do, and you’ve been respectful. I just-. I need you to appeal to more people, and I’ll do the same on my side and we’ll see where it all comes out.”
Black Lives Matter began a riot after the district attorney announced that there will be no charges against Police Officer Mensah in the death of Alvin Cole.
Cole was seen in a mall with a loaded gun, brandishing it to shoppers and after officers arrived, Cole aimed his gun at them and Officer Mensah fired.
Other homeowners were appalled by the damages and one man drove past the mob in order to help an elderly woman out of her house after rioters damaged her windows.
A homeowner said, “There only one person that was home. She’s a 70-year-old woman and she was in her bedroom and her front window got smashed.”
The man recording asked, “What was her reaction to that? Did-.”
The homeowner stated, “She screamed. She started crying. She called me. By the time I got down here, because 90 first she was completely blocked up, she couldn’t stop shaking. I ended up loading her into my vehicle and driving into her sister’s house in Grafton and hopes that she would get some rest because I knew she wouldn’t get any rest here overnight. All the other tenants had already chosen to not be here last night. So she was the only one that was there.”
The man asked, “So obviously, you know, you’re just getting initial damage assessment. But I mean, how much do you think it’s gonna cost to repair everything?”
The owner responded, “Ten thousand dollars, you know somewhere in that ballpark, I would guess.”
The man asked, “Do you think stuff like this is helpful to the cause and to the movement?”
“No, it’s not. I understand the right to protest. I’m completely behind that. When you damage somebody whose residents you’ve gone too far. It’s not a protest anymore,” the homeowner responded.
