Flash Mobs Hit State Fair Area. It's a Race Riot

Predictable. Maybe the State Fair talent-bookers will learn from this. Maybe not.

Local law enforcement agencies are investigating several incidents near State Fair Park late Thursday night.

Milwaukee police said that around 11:10 p.m., squads were sent to the area for complaints of battery, fighting and property damage to a large, unruly crowd. One officer described it as a "mob beating."Police said the group of young people attacked fairgoers who were leaving the fair grounds. Police said that some victims were attacked while walking. They said others were pulled out of cars and off of motorcycles before being beaten.

State Fair visit checklist: water bottles, sunscreen, hat, and defensive baseball bat.


"It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people," said Norb Roffers of Wind Lake in an interview with Newsradio 620 WTMJ. He left the State Fair Entrance near the corner of South 84th Street and West Schlinger Avenue in West Allis.

"They were attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever."

"It was 100% racial," claimed Eric, an Iraq war veteran from St. Francis who says young people beat on his car.

..."We exited at the Schlinger and 84th exit, and we walked south about a block, and then went up and got our car, came back up and around down Schlinger. When we made a left hand turn, we were stopped in traffic. I looked toward the bridge, right before you get on the freeway, and all I saw was a road full of black kids, jumping over people's cars, jumping on people's hoods, running over the top of them."

Eric then claimed that he saw hundreds of young black people coming down a sidewalk.

"I saw them grab this wide kid who was probably 14 or 15 years old. They just flung him into the road. They just jumped on him and started beating him. They were kicking him. He was on the ground. A girl picked up a construction sign and pushed it over on top of him. They were just running by and kicking him in the face."

The State Fair booked MC Hammer, Young MC, and Tone Loc (whatever those are), which explains about 100% of this.

You just don't understand, Dad, that these otherwise fine young people were just "living the hip-hop lifestyle." It's a cultural thing.

Since it's a dairy state fair, it would be appropriate to bring along your pitchfork in case someone needs help moving around some hay bales. Naturally Dad is overwhelmed by the news today, but will be making jokes about it in a couple weeks just like he did following the Barrett incident.

This is a time where I wish I had more ammo.

I don't wish. I listen to Dad...
