(Liberty Bell) – There is a dangerous trend across the United States of not only far-left politicians calling for police departments to be abolished and defunded, there are also actual violent mobs out on the streets who have tried to literally prevent the police from doing their job.
And what is their job, exactly?
To protect and serve. Who will be left to do this if the police are chased out?
A violent mob took the streets of Milwaukee on Tuesday after police conducted a search for two missing teenage girls, The Blaze reports.
Police are seeking several suspects in connection to an arson and a related shooting that took place the same evening.
Officers arrived at a Milwaukee-area home searching for two missing teens. The teens were reportedly last seen at the home, which people in the crowd said was a known sex-trafficking hotspot.
During the search, officers were bombarded by bricks and verbally abused as a mob set fire to the structure. At least three people were shot in a related melee.
Just let this scene sink in.
Police show up to try to track down two missing girls who may very well be currently kept as literal slaves to evil sex traffickers.
A mob of “woke” citizens actually attacks them as they try to rescue these girls.
Is this the Twilight Zone?!
The crowd, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel included a “mix of neighbors observing the situation, people expressing frustration with police, and activists who’d marched in Milwaukee’s racial justice protests.”
The Sentinel added that what was a simple missing persons investigation “morphed” over several hours “tensions about police treatment ran high” and “rumors spread online.”
“By nightfall, three people — including two 14-year-olds — had been shot, a house was set on fire, and police had fired tear gas and pepper spray on some members of a scattered crowd of hundreds gathered outside a Milwaukee house where police earlier conducted an investigation into two missing teenage girls,” the Sentinel reported.
A 24-year-old man was later shot near the scene as someone fired shots inside his vehicle, the paper reported police to have said.
According to WISN-TV, people in the crowd began “throwing bricks and pieces of concrete at police.”
At least one, possibly several shooters began firing guns into the crowd and three people were struck.
Thankfully, the girls, aged 13 and 15, were located on Wednesday, according to WISN, who also reported that there was no evidence the teens had ever been at the house in the first place.
