An ABC affiliate in Wisconsin WISN.com reports, August 5, 2011 that around 11:10 p.m. last night, an unruly crowd of “hundreds” of people ran amuck in/near the Wisconsin State Fair Park in Milwaukee. Police squads were sent to the area after reports of “mob beating,” fighting, and property damage.
Police said the group of young people attacked fair goers who were leaving the fair grounds. Police said that some victims were attacked while walking. They said others were pulled out of cars and off of motorcycles before being beaten.The Milwaukee Police Department, West Allis Police Department and Milwaukee County Sheriff Department all responded to the area. Police outside the park said they received four complaints of battery with all the victims having non-life threatening injuries. They said they are in the process of identifying suspects.
Norbert Roffers of Wind Lake told The Associated Press he was waiting with his wife to cross at an intersection near the fair when he was hit in the back of the head. Roffers said another man was lying in the street after being attacked until someone came along to help him.West Allis police said they sent a rescue squad to one of the scenes, but that their crew did not treat anyone. Police said the incidents happened in various areas near the fair grounds, including near the intersection of 84th and Adler streets.
State Fair Park CEO Rick Frenette told 12 News that 24 arrests were made on the grounds Thursday and seven State Fair Police officers were injured.
The WISN.com news article above does/will not say that the attacking mob were blacks. But if you go onto the WISN.com website and click on the news video, you can see the racial identity of the suspects yourself.
