The insane consequences of the fabricated “police brutality” spectacle that began in Ferguson are already putting lives at risk. From Milwaukee:
A Milwaukee man has been arrested after allegedly chasing two police officers with a large butcher knife and threatening to kill them.
Alfonso Martinez, 26, was charged with two counts of recklessly endangering safety by using a weapon on Thursday.
Authorities said the incident occurred Monday when two police officers were investigating a double homicide. The officers discovered two dead bodies when they entered a home on the 3200 block of N. Richards Street. Once they encountered Martinez, the officers said he threatened to kill them and began chasing them around parked cars while wielding a large butcher knife. The officers eventually arrested him after Martinez dropped his weapon.
One of the officers involved told investigators that this was “the most frightening experience” she has had as an officer. She also admitted that she was “beginning to wear out from the running” before Martinez ultimately surrendered. …
The two officers said they refrained from shooting Martinez given the recent widespread backlash against officers using excessive and deadly force on citizens.
Police are actually more afraid of Eric Holder and the leftist vermin who run the media than they are of maniacs attacking them with butcher knives.
Imagine if Martinez had been a sacred black. Rather than run, the police probably would have dropped their guns and knelt in obeisance.
Good thing he chose to drop the knife. It was entirely his call.
On a tip from Wiggins.
