Milwaukee Police Officer Ambushed In His Car

Milwaukee Police Officer Ambushed In His Car

A Milwaukee police officer was shot in a “vicious” attack early Sunday as he sat in his squad car while colleagues investigated a domestic disturbance call.

The suspected shooter, identified by police as a 20-year-old West Allis man with two felonies on his record, was found dead in a nearby yard, they said. It aoppears his death was suicide,

The incident began as a response to a domestic disturbance call near South 17th Street and West Morgan Avenue at about 2 a.m. During that investigation, someone fired shots into the squad car, striking an officer “multiple” times,” Asst. Police Chief William Jessup said in a morning press conference.

The officer, a 31-year-old man with 13 years of service, was taken to Froedtert Hospital for surgery. Milwaukee police Sergeant Tim Gauerke said the injuries were not life-threatening.

“This is just another example of the risks our officers take each and every day to protect these citizens,” Jessup said.

    I worked as a cop in Miami during the 80’s,and even in the police dept. their was racism between the white,Hispanic, and blacks working there. It was crazy working there.

    Blacks are simply feeding racism, and its just a matter of time before whites start taking revenge and hunting blacks. The KKK must be just loving this. Membership is through the roof.

  6. tiny molinari

    Miracle smith… your either playing games to avoid the truth… or you belong to BLM and are trying to minimize the call for action.
    BLM CHANTS “KILL COPS” FOR HOURS AT EVERY RALLY. THEY PUBLICLY CALL FOR BLACKS TO KILL A COP EVERY CHANCE THEY GET. .

    ITS NOT RACIST ….ITS WHAT THEY ARE ASKING FOR.
    FUTHERMORE..WITH INTERNET AND SOCIAL MEDIA.. THEY DON’T NEED TO BE THERE ROOTING ON THE KILLERS… THE BLM …AND THE NEWS… ARE MAKING HEROES OUT OF THE KILLER.. SO YES.. PLENTY OF LOSERS WILL THINK THEY ARE DYING A MARTYR.

    It’s not rocket science. And it’s not too hard to tell your position. …you play the race card rather than put forth your own facts… psychologically speaking I have given you inalienable facts. Education is what you need..not Social Media.

    I’m glad the wounds weren’t life threatening. Prayers for the officer. Toney, you be careful out there.

  8. Miracle Smith

    You do realize no protests were in Milwaukee, so blaming BLM for an event they weren’t present at makes no sense right. And media isn’t racist, black people don’t own any media stations or studios. So please stop with the reverse racism where none exists.

    • Jonathan

      Right because there’s arent any BLM supports anywhere there’s not a protest going on. 2 police officers were executed in new York by BLM supporter with it any protests going on. Several officers have been ambushed recently in cities where no protests where going on. Maybe if you would stop trying to ignore the truth you might see the actual facts for what they are.

      • marycat485

        And the Baton Rouge murderer came from Kansas City, Missouri apparently.

      Your an idiot, blacks are the biggest racists out there.

      • Marcko Polo

        finally… somebody actually said it….

  9. Ron Hoagland

    This stuff goes on every day, its just now the media thinks every time this happens they need to report it so we can all feel like, oh no the sky is falling. Stop consuming this garbage that the media is feeding, Whether it be police offers, random acts of terrorism or whatever, 99% of the sh being reported will never happen to 99% of the population. So relax, the world has always been a crazy place, its just that you have more media in your life today.

    • PostRemoved

      No it does not, attacks against police are at an all-time high.

  10. krayzrick

    Media pushes unrest in America for Obama

    • Ron Hoagland

      • krayzrick

        Pull your head out of Obama’s butt and look around dumbazz.

        • Ron Hoagland

          Turn on your TV moron, Fox News has another spoonful of crap to feed you so open wide

  11. Viking_61

    You gotta hand it to blacks, they control the media narrative like no other.

    • Miracle Smith

      Please support that statement with facts please. How do blacks that are vilified by media and portrayed as stereotypes to reaffirm the prejudices that obvious racists that you have, controlling anything?

        • Dawn D.

          Not a “very good example” when every article I can find that he’s published shows how racist he is.

      • Justinsatiable

        You obviously have a paranoid agenda because you are projecting your own bias onto comments on this board. Your comments are disjointed and random just like your medulla oblongata boy! The only “miracle” is the removal of yo cranium from ya gluteals

    • Dawn D.

      You surely know the media is owned by rich white men, right? It’s kind of difficult for the black community to be in control of any narrative when it fits the white supremacist agenda. Maybe you’re just that naive, but I imagine you’re just that racist.

      • PostRemoved

        Yep and the white men know how to create news.

        • Justinsatiable

          Who’s killing whom in this cuntry? Sumfins wrong wit yo medulla oblongata brahahahaaaa!

      • Justinsatiable

        Sweeping generalizations….fallacy

        • Dawn D.

          Lmao! Which, mine or his?! Gtfo

          • Justinsatiable

            Yours sugar balls! Better yet, sweep your upper lips after those obscenities! Blithering Blatherskite! Baaaaahahahaha! Write that down and expand your vocabulary by 2000%…

    • Marcko Polo

      they were given the gift of activism/ agitation as a remnant of the 1960’s….

  12. Sherry Turner Hinds

    BS they DO NOT MATTER BLM ORGANIZATION SHOULD Be CALLED BLDM. THUGS AND POS SCUM.

    • Miracle Smith

      Where in the article did they mention, protest or BLM? How exactly are they related to this unrelated event? I’ll wait…

      • tiny molinari

        It’s related in that the new Panthers and the BLM are literally CALLING FOR BLACKS TO MURDER COPS EVERY CHANCE THEY GET.
        AND THERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE WHOSE LIFE ISN’T GOING WELL THAT THINKS THEY WILL BE A MARTYR…. A HERO FOR THE CAUSE…

        EDUCATE YOURSELF BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH… OR KEYBOARD.

  13. Theresa Lockwood

    Though this is a really serous issue and I am in no way down playing this sh00ting. Its very serious…but there is NOTHING to indicate that this is an ambush! Please stick to the facts and the seriousness of this issue will take care of itself for what it is. No need to make this out to be an ambush, because the heinous sh00ting in Baton Rouge was an ambush. Tell it for what it is and keep it real!

  14. D Brown

    Why can’t the racist Media print the work Black . I’m sure if was a white man they would have been all over it !

    • ObamaLovesUSAlikeOJLovedNicole

      Even if he’s not white, sometimes they’ll say he is anyway. Ever heard the media call someone a “white hispanic” prior to George Zimmerman shooting Thugvon Martin?

      Let’s be frank…. they saw the name “Zimmerman” and ran with the script… OOPS.

    • Miracle Smith

      Why does the race matter? Oh I know, so you can lump this totally unrelated tragedy into a BLM is a hate group /terrorist organization even if there isn’t one fact to support that claim. Where was it reported that BLM or any protester was in Milwaukee? This is just a run of the mill officer killed in the line of duty and your attempts to make it racial is pathetic and says more about you and your beliefs.

      • KD

        BLM are a terrorist organization and you don’t know squat, cupcake.

      • Marcko Polo

        race matters because of the very clear statistical results of sociological studies of the demographics of crime, as per race…. we live in a world clearly divided by color…. to insist we not do this, is to ignore reality by shoving your head in the sand… we, simply, “are not all one”….

      • robert Saunders

        Officer wasn’t killed and you or I have no idea at this time if it was a racially motivated shooting. Carry on with your pot smoking.

  15. Doreen Gaffney Barr

    This kind of savagery goes such a long way in improving relations. What a crock.

    • Miracle Smith

      This is an unrelated incident to the Dallas shooting. This wasnt a result of a protest or riot. So exactly what are you talkimg about? Critical thinking skills are lacking…

      • Doreen Gaffney Barr

        There is an air of hatred all across this country. If you don’t think that the overall hatred of police hasn’t contributed to the recent deaths of all of our officers then it is YOU who totally lacks critical thinking skills. Just because there was no protesting going on EVERY time people contribute to the agenda with HATE speech, lies about Police, over exaggerations and boastful threats against them some idiot delinquent or a person who has psych problems may react by killing innocent officers. The policemen who are abusive need to be punished but that doesn’t mean any old policeman substituted in at the discretion of the killer is right. Words have consequences. If you are contributing to the hate you are part of the problem when innocent officers are executed.
