Protesters fire shotgun into Black officer’s home, police say: ‘They were trying to kill me’

This is NOT “Peaceful Protesting”, this is Mob Rule… This is what “Defund The Police” looks Like…

Dozens of protesters descended upon a police officer’s home in Milwaukee County Saturday night, vandalizing the residence, physically assaulting the officer and firing a single shotgun round into the home, police said.

The Wauwatosa Police Department said in a statement that a large group of as many as 60 people “targeted” the private residence of Officer Joseph Mensah and physically assaulted him when he tried to stop them from vandalizing the home. After the officer retreated into his home, police said, armed protesters approached the rear door and a single shotgun round was discharged by a member of the group into the back door of the home.

Police said an investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Officer Mensah had been involved in the shooting deaths of three people in the past five years. The first two shootings were ruled justified, while the Feb. 2 shooting death of 17-year-old Alvin Cole remains under review by the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office, FOX 6 reported. Officer Mensah was suspended on July 15 and is facing calls for his firing over that incident. He maintains he acted in self-defense and believes he was suspended just to appease the protesters, who have targeted his home before, he told FOX 6.
