WI Protesters Attack Black Cop and his Girlfriend After Swarming His Home (Watch)

*A large group of protesters in Wisconsin bum rushed the private home of Wauwatosa police officer Joseph Mensah on Saturday, Aug. 8, vandalized his home and injured him and his girlfriend in the process.

Wauwatosa police said that between 50 and 60 protesters physically assaulted and shot at Mensah at around 8 p.m. Saturday evening at his home near 100th and Vienna. When Mensah attempted to speak with the group, he was physically assaulted. When Mensah ran back into his home, armed protesters approached the rear door and a single shotgun round was discharged by a member of the group into Mensah’s back door. Multiple agencies helped Wauwatosa police disburse the crowd.

Protesters were angry because Mensah had killed three people in the line of duty in a span of five years. The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office had already ruled two of Mensah’s deadly shootings, including that of Jay Anderson Jr. in 2016, as self defense. The third, the deadly shooting of Alvin Cole at Mayfair Mall earlier this year, is still under review.

Mensah posted about the encounter with protesters on Facebook saying, they “tried to kill me.” He said he and his girlfriend, a Milwaukee police officer, were assaulted, punched and shot at multiple times with a shotgun round nearly missing him.

“The irony in all of this is that they chanted Black Lives Matter the entire time, but had zero regard for any of the black children that live there or me, a black man,” Mensah wrote.
