Mob Attacks Motorist, Fire Department

Yes, that's a Milwaukee story--reported by Channel 12 News last night.

A Milwaukee man said he thought he was going to die when a mob attacked him after he accidentally hit a 3-year-old girl with his car on Monday.

The man, who asked not to be identified for fear of retaliation, said the mob also attacked firefighters who arrived at the scene to help the girl.

Firefighters put their lives on the line every day, but Milwaukee Fire Chief Doug Holton said that danger is increasingly coming from the people on the ground, not from those in the buildings. Holton said this must stop.

"Mob"? "Increasingly"? This is not good news, Mayor Barrett.

Hmmmmm. The local print medium isn't reporting this "increasing" danger.

Evidently the people responsible for the little girl were NOT paying attention, at all. The motorist will not be ticketed.

By the way, somebody stole the motorist's car and trashed it, too.
