This Won't End Well: Rioters in Wisconsin Invade the Suburbs

Townhall’s Julio Rosas was on the ground Wednesday night in Wauwatosa, Wisc., filming the not-so-peaceful rioters operating under some new grievance about a police shooting. Frankly, I don’t care what it’s about at this point. There’s no excuse for violence and property damage and I’m tired of giving it any credibility by mentioning whatever today’s grievance is, knowing there will be another one tomorrow. Violence in response to injustice is neither just nor useful.

This latest “protest” saw a lot of broken windows and skirmishes with police. But it was this second video in Rosas’ thread that stands out. Rioters moved into a residential area and began throwing bricks and stones through windows. It’s a good time to remind these people that Americans just purchased guns in record numbers after a summer of riots and looting. Five million (at last count) new gun owners are packing heat just for this circumstance and there’s no way that this will end well for rioters if it continues.

Rosas was able to interview a homeowner who came out to try and tell the rioters they are not helping their cause and are instead alienating their supporters by doing this. That interview will be up on Townhall later today. “You don’t even know who in this neighborhood supports what you’re doing and who doesn’t,” said the resident, trying to reason with the rioters. “Do you know how many Democrats…union members and other people that could support you live on this street?”

For his trouble, rioters ran over his lawn with a motorcycle.

How long are people going to live like this, “sheltering in place” and shaking in fear while mobs tear up their neighborhoods? My guess is, not much longer, especially when the police make it clear they’re not coming to help and advising residents to just stay away from the windows. 

I don’t know about your neighborhood, but if antifa ever gets around to mine, we’re all out of patience and our bullets aren’t rubber.
