SAVAGE VIOLENCE: “It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people. They were attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever.”
The Blaze – That’s how Norb Roffers described the scene outside the Wisconsin State Fair on Thursday night to Newsradio 620 WTMJ in Milwaukee. Calls of injuries are still coming in as witnesses say victims were pulled out of cars and off motorcycles and beaten.
Roffers and others painted a grim and detailed picture of what unfolded during the first day of the fair. “It was 100% racial,” claimed Eric, an Iraq war veteran who told the station that young people beat on his car.
WTMJ sums up their accounts: “Witnesses’ accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.”
Milwaukee Police confirmed to WTMJ that officers responded to “complaints of battery, fighting and property damage due to a large, unruly crowd.” However, since reports of injuries were still coming in, police could not give a detailed account of what happened.
Here is just some of what the witnesses claim to have experienced:
“I had a black couple on my right side, and these black kids were running in between all the cars, and they were pounding on my doors and trying to open up doors on my car, and they didn’t do one thing to this black couple that was in this car next to us. They just kept walking right past their car. They were looking in everybody’s windshield as they were running by, seeing who was white and who was black. Guarantee it.”
