Will the youth at BLM honor the curfew? A dozen officer have been injured. At least six businesses looted and burned.

Mayor Declares Curfew After Second Night of Milwaukee Unrest

The mayor of Milwaukee imposed a 10 p.m. Monday curfew for teenagers after the city was rocked by a second straight night of violent street protests over the fatal police shooting of a local man.

"After 10 o'clock, your teenagers better be home or in a place where they're off the streets," Mayor Tom Barrett said.

Barrett made the announcement as tensions remained high in the Sherman Park neighborhood and police were out in force, while the National Guard was on standby and ready to move in if necessary.

"This is not the place where you go to gawk. It is not the place where you go to take pictures. It is not the place to drive your car around," Barrett said. "Those individuals, in my mind, are deliberately trying to damage a great neighborhood and a great city."

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has issued a proclamation applying the city's curfew for teenagers to 17-year-olds.

The curfew earlier applied to teenagers up to and including 16-year-olds. Barrett also moved the summer curfew one hour earlier, to 10 p.m., and warned it would be enforced more tightly after violence that has marred the city's north side following the fatal police shooting of a black man.

The next night, more than 100 people holding candles and paper signs reading "BlackLivesMatter" gathered at Sherman Park and then marched to the site of the shooting.
found this in one of your links. But, these people are holding candles , not rioting. Plus, it's not clear whether they are actual BLM members, or just people at a vigil using the most popular slogan of the times?

Because BLM has been protesting in Milwaukee. Maybe you weren't aware of that. Let's just say that tonight anyone under 17 who is protesting will be getting arrested. Nothing like a criminal record to help on college admission or job search.

Oh okay, you want to distance them from Black Lives Matter. Okay, how about this... The predominately black crowds that have been out there in Milwaukee better be over the age of 17 tonight. The sheriff's department has brought in help. They plan to crack down on looters, arsonists, and those that will throw rocks at police.

Good.
Whether they are BLM or not, people need to understand that they have the right to peacefully assemble and seek redress of grievances, not the right to loot, set fires, and throw rocks at the police. That sort of thing is still illegal and not protected by the Constitution.

This is about enough, time to deploy the national guard and blow away some arsonists and looters.

People put blood into the businesses they build and the people they employ rely on those jobs to feed their children and pay their bills.

If these people really want to make a difference, get on a fucking bus and go burn the state capital building.
