    Lots of pictures and video of rioters smashing police cars, setting police cars on fire, setting a BP gas station on fire (after looting), crowd chanting "Black Power" and "Burn it down" as the BP station is looted and burned, shots fired by rioters, rioters trying to take down traffic lights, etc.

    This is a full on "riot" IMO, not any kind of "protest", as some of the media is desperately trying to frame the violence. There is really no way to describe this level of violence and destruction as a "protest", peaceful or otherwise.

    I hope this calms down as the night goes on.

    I'm reading on Twitter (not MSM) that the BP station is the place where warning shots were fired at youth recently. Is that accurate?

    Another tweet says the roof on the burning BP station has collapsed, and no police or firefighters are present at that site.

    I love Milwaukee. Lots of great things there. It is one of the most segregated cities in the US. There is and was so much wealth there. Beautiful homes by beautiful Lake Michigan.

    Sad, but inevitable . Hope some good solutions can finally come about.

    Latest: Milwaukee Police Try Again to Disperse Protesters


    The Latest on unrest in Milwaukee following a police shooting that left one man dead (all times local):
    11:15 p.m.

    Police in Milwaukee are trying again to disperse protesters on the city's north side in the wake of a man's fatal police shooting.

    Some 100 protesters skirmished with officers Saturday night, hours after an officer shot and killed a 23-year-old man whom police said was armed and had run from a traffic stop.

    Police say it's not clear whether the man pointed the gun at or fired at officers.

    Police said in a tweet that officers were moving into an intersection and asking the crowd to disperse peacefully, but rocks were being thrown at officers.

    The department said in earlier tweets that one officer was injured by a thrown brick, a squad car had its windows smashed and another one was set on fire.

    Fox news:

    Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee pleading with "mothers" of young people to "get them home."

    Reveals that there is body camera footage of the officer involved shooting. Suspect had 23 rounds in his stolen weapon.

    Also, traffic signals have been "bent over." Businesses on fire; firefighters now able to respond.

    Nine "civilian" shootings (not by police) in this neighborhood in the past 24 hours. Neighborhood has had a lot of crime and unrest.

    So many fabulous places to live in that area, but one needs $$$$$$. Whitefish Bay, Mequon, Holy Hill, Cedarburg, Fox Point, Port Washington, and on and on. I love that area so much. I hope there can be some peace. Grafton is cute and not as expensive.
