This Will End, One Way Or Another
The time will come when America replaces political correctness with swift, possibly lethal, reaction to those who choose to run amok in the streets causing death, destruction and havoc. Police officers should not have to fear for their safety protecting its citizens.
Violence erupted in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Saturday after a black man was fatally shot by police. The man shot by police has been identified by family members as 23-year-old Sylville Smith. The officer who shot him is described as a 24-year-old black man with six years of experience. He has been placed on administrative leave.
Mayor Tom Barrett said the two officers involved in the chase and shooting were wearing body cameras. The cameras were operational, Barrett said. He said the officer ordered the man to drop his gun twice and then fired several times when he refused.
Barrett said a photo from the body camera clearly shows Smith had the gun in his hand when he was killed. One police officer is in the hospital after a brick was thrown through his squad car in the unrest that followed the shooting. Police vehicles and four businesses were set on fire.

Picture Of The Day: Sylville Smith is no longer with us. He had been in trouble with the law dating back at least to 2011, according to arrest records released by the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office late Sunday.
He was arrested or ticketed nine times in that period — for the shooting, a robbery, carrying a concealed weapon, theft, possession of heroin and more. His most recent arrest was July 22 for possession of cocaine, records show.
Last year, Smith was charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety and with witness intimidation, but the charges were dismissed, court records show. T
he charges were dropped even though the prosecutors had recorded jail calls in which Smith asked his girlfriend to pressure the victim to recant, according to court records.
In the witness intimidation case, Smith was accused of pressuring the victim in a shooting to recant a statement identifying him as the suspect, according to the criminal complaint.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: An old woman was arrested for shoplifting. When she went before the judge he asked her, "What did you steal?" She replied, "A can of peaches."
The judge asked her why she had stolen them and she replied that she was hungry. The judge then asked her how many peaches were in the can. She replied 6. The judge then said, "I will give you 6 days in jail."
Before the judge could actually pronounce the punishment the woman's husband spoke up and asked the judge if he could say something. He said," What is it? " The husband said, "She also stole a can of peas.
A policeman interviews two blondes who are training to become detectives. To test their skills in recognizing a suspect, he shows the first blonde a picture for five seconds and then hides it. "This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?"
The first blonde answers, "We'll catch him fast because he only has one eye and one ear!" The policeman says, "Well, uh, that's because the picture only shows his profile."
Slightly flustered by this ridiculous response, he flashes the picture for five seconds at the second blonde and asks her, "This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?" The second blonde looks at the picture intently for a moment and says, "Hmm - the suspect wears contact lenses."
The policeman is speechless because he really doesn't know if the suspect wears contacts or not. He says, "Well, that's an interesting answer. Wait here for a few minutes while I check his file." He leaves the room and goes to his office to check the suspect's file in his computer.
He returns with a beaming smile on his face and says, "Wow, it's true! The suspect does in fact wear contact lenses. Good work! How were you able to make such an astute observation?" The blonde replied. "That's easy, he can't wear glasses because he only has one eye and one ear."
