Milwaukee Mob Burns Down Home In Mistaken Attempt At Vigilante Justice

The madness of crowds was on full display in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this past week as an investigation into the whereabouts of two missing teens ended up with shots fired, a rampaging mob, and several families left homeless after rioters burned down their shelter in an act of mistaken identity and vigilante justice.

According to the  Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, police searched the home in question last Tuesday morning looking for the missing teens, but found no evidence that they had ever been there. Unsatisfied, the paper reports a “group of onlookers began searching the home,” which, the last time I checked, is called breaking and entering.

By the time hours of chaos ended, three people had been shot, including two 14-year-olds; and 10 officers and a firefighter were injured. An unknown number of others were hurt by the tear gas and rubber bullets police fired into a scattered crowd.

The girls, ages 13 and 15, were eventually found by one of their mothers more than three miles away. Police said there was no indication the girls were ever there — or that the house was used for such activity.
