Violence and protests erupted in Milwaukee overnight after a man was fatally shot by police during a foot chase.

Police said the victim, 23, was armed with a handgun and shot dead by an officer after fleeing a traffic stop on Milwaukee's north side Saturday afternoon.

Hours later angry crowds took to the streets, smashing a police car and setting fire to another. One officer was injured by a flying brick; a gas station and auto-parts store were set alight. Police said gunshots were heard. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett pleaded for calm at an early morning news conference, asking residents to "do everything" to help restore order. "If you love your son, if you love your daughter, text them, call them, pull them by the ears and get 'em home," he said.

The Chicago Police Department killed again on July 29 — the sixth time this year.

A set of bodycam videos released eight days later depicts in harrowing detail the wanton and reckless murder of unarmed black eighteen-year-old Paul O’Neal, adding another chapter to the lengthy tome of the Chicago Police Department’s (CPD) record of abuse, torture and murder.

In addition to providing evidence of lethal police misconduct, the video also offers a window into the depraved reaction of the officers involved, revealing the ugliness of a police culture that has no concern for those who meet violence at their hands — and the total lack of accountability for their actions.

One police officer has died and another was injured after being shot in a San Diego neighborhood, authorities said early Friday.
