This is my take on a recent incident of a Milwaukee Firefighter that got beaten up for no reason.
First, as I was reading the news in Milwaukee, with all the kiddos going back to the classrooms of Milwaukee, there was a concern about roughing up yet again. This time, it’s directed at the Milwaukee Firefighters. YES YOU READ IT RIGHT: Milwaukee Firefighters! I mean really!
Most recently, there was a crash scene that was reported near the intersection of 60th and Capitol Drive. Still the same intersection in all going to work and play. Plus going to high school back in the day. The scene was for a vigil that an individual was killed in the area via a motorcycle accident. While the vigil was going on, (via Fox6 News) a firefighter was in appearance as well.
Here is the story:
MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee firefighter was “roughed up” during an incident which happened near 60th and Capitol Dr. on Saturday evening, September 5th.
FOX6 News is told a large group of people were in the area for a vigil to remember the victim of a fatal motorcycle crash.
Police were monitoring the crowd around 7:20 p.m. when one person began to have a medical emergency. Officials say the crowd would not move back from the patient. They apparently became disorderly with police and firefighters as they attempted to treat the patient.
At one point, a member of the crowd “roughed up” a firefighter causing a minor injury.
The suspect, a 26-year-old Milwaukee man, was arrested for battery to a firefighter.
The person having the medical emergency was evaluated at a hospital.
This is where I get the thinking: REALLY! We’re beat up Firefighters now at freaking vigils! OH THE HUMANITY OF GOD AND JESUS! WHY THIS? Just long time ago, there was a time that guns were drawn on City Garbage Workers, physical violence and shootings were on county buses partially on bus drivers, and now you got Firefighters on this? SERIOUSLY?! All at a freaking Vigil.
This is the point I’m not understanding. I’ll bet those who actually roughed up the Firefighter is probably having that “Come To Jesus Meeting” in a harsh manner! Yeah, I said it. If those who think that know like a free-thinker in a atheist way of dragging down other’s opinion in a tricking manner yes, you need a come to jesus meeting! But that’s not what is being editorialized here.
This kind of hit home to me, because I have cousins that were Firefighters in Milwaukee. I met with the Milwaukee Brotherhood of Firefighters a couple of years ago on one of the 9/11 anniversaries. They also used to come to my church anniversary block parties near 24th and Keefe way back. I wonder, why are these fools beating up folks who are licensed EMT’s mixed with the ability to fight fires to save lives! This is not the first time. Earlier this year, in Milwaukee mind you, a firefighter was shot while on duty.
So yes, I’m not surprised. And I’m certainly not shocked that the 26-year-old is in jail all because he (And I’m assuming it’s a he) that did the job by attacking those who help those in need of real serious emergencies of fires and 9-1-1 calls.
Get it together brew city!
