State Patrol called in, youth policy imposed after violence at State Fair

By Don Walker and Mike Johnson of the Journal Sentinel

Witnesses told WTMJ-AM (620) that dozens to hundreds of young black people were beating white people as they left the fair late Thursday night. Patrice Harris, a spokeswoman for the fair, said a police alert she was given indicated four people were hurt.

"It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people," Norb Roffers of Wind Lake told WTMJ. He said he left the State Fair entrance near the corner of S. 84th St. and W. Schlinger Ave. in West Allis.

One eyewitness, a concession worker who works near the midway area, told the Journal Sentinel that large groups of African-American youths ran through the midway area, knocking over young children and adults, disrupting midway rides and tearing signs up.

"I have never seen anything like it," the worker said. "It was mob mentality."

Similar disturbances

The fair incidents are similar to mob-like disturbances that occurred over the Fourth of July weekend in Milwaukee.

About 60 young people beat and robbed a smaller group that had been watching fireworks from Kilbourn Reservoir Park. The injured people were white; the attackers were African-American, witnesses said.

Another group looted a convenience store at a gas station at the corner E. North Ave. and N. Humboldt Blvd.

The incidents Thursday night come as the State Fair board over the last decade has worked to increase diversity at the annual fair, expanding its entertainment lineup and marketing to appeal to a younger, more multicultural audience. Diversity was a priority for State Fair Park Chairman Martin Greenberg, who spoke often of making it "truly the people's park" - a "place of inclusion, not exclusion."

Thursday night's Main Stage performer was rapper MC Hammer, but a number of people who attended the concert said the show wasn't to blame at all for the disturbances at the fair. One woman said the crowd watching Hammer was mostly white and adult and any children there seemed to be with parents.

Another woman said the concert was "very laid back and had no craziness that we witnessed at all. The craziness was in the midway," she said.

Courteous driving be damned. Parking your car on top of these people is an option, as is plowing your way through them to escape.

And this is why Wisconsin needs concealed carry. You put a dozen of these savages in the dirt and the rest will learn.

The same reason the liberals at the Dispatch won't let us post there anymore. They don't want to deal with reality - they want a liberal echo chamber.

Come to Easton Town Center on a Friday or Saturday night to see your people in action. Careful though, some are packing and shoot people in the head. Last time it was a 16 year old boy and he shot his own brother, age 14, dead. I am weary, not hateful. I've just seen it too many times before to believe it will ever change.

She's right, while these stories of black people involved in violence and crime are unfortunately all too common, they do not represent the majority of black people who are as offended by it as everyone else.

Cosby and Poussaint's recent appearance on Meet the Press is an example. Quoting from the book, host Tim Russert and the authors recited a litany of familiar and all-too-accurate statistics: "One out of three homeless people are black…. Homicide is the number one cause of death for black men between 15 and 29 years of age and has been for decades….Although black people make up 12 percent of the general population, they make up nearly 44 percent of the prison population. At any given time, as many as one in four of all … young black men are in the criminal justice system— prison or jail, on probation or on parole."

But, I'll guess that some place like the STATE FAIR would not permit Concealed Carry on the grounds leaving even legal Concealed Carry people unprotected.

You know why. Because the purpose of "the news" is to tell us what to think about and how to think about it. The powers that be do not want us to know about all the stuff that's going on. They want us to think about Lady GaGa and the rest of the entertainers. As long as we think on meaningless stuff we won't be thinking about what the powers are doing to us. Yesterday morning a talking head on network CBS interviewed two very young women about the stock market and one of these clueless bimbos actually remarked that America doesn't have to worry about the debt because we can always print money. This is what passes for information now. And the masses don't know any different. They do not understand that the printing up of worthless paper results in the loss of value of what we all have managed to accumulate that the government has not already taxed or taken from us. There is no hope for America. She is going down.
