What the hell?! No, really? What the hell is going on? Last night, mayhem erupted at the Wisconsin State Fair as "300 to 400" black teenagers attacked white fair-goers and generally caused terror in the West Allis neighborhood. Eric, an Iraq war veteran feared for his life. He says the teens "were attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever" and the motivation was "100% racial." He tells WTMJ:
"I had a black couple on my right side, and these black kids were running in between all the cars, and they were pounding on my doors and trying to open up doors on my car, and they didn't do one thing to this black couple that was in this car next to us. They just kept walking right past their car. They were looking in everybody's windshield as they were running by, seeing who was white and who was black. Guarantee it." Eric then claimed that he saw hundreds of young black people coming down a sidewalk. "I saw them grab this white kid who was probably 14 or 15 years old. They just flung him into the road. They just jumped on him and started beating him. They were kicking him. He was on the ground. A girl picked up a construction sign and pushed it over on top of him. They were just running by and kicking him in the face." Then, Eric talked about trying to get out of the car to help the victim. "My wife pulled me back in because she didn't want me to get hit. Thankfully, there was a lady that was in the car in front of me that jumped out of the car real quick and went over there to try to put her body around the kid so they couldn't see he was laying there and, obviously, defenseless. Her husband, or whoever was in the car, was screaming at her to get back into the car. She ended up going back into the car. These black kids grabbed this kid off the ground again, and pulled him up over the curb, onto the sidewalk and threw him into the bushes like he was a piece of garbage." Eric claimed that the victim in that beating was by himself, and that there was a split of white people on one sidewalk and black people on the other.We're almost certain something like this happened at a fair last year. (We're too lazy to check.) As for this incident in Wisconsin, police have not confirmed the number of people suspected of attacking, or the number of people injured. They say that some injuries were serious, and local hospitals were attending to the injured.
Another eyewitness named Norbert Roffers adds: "I turned around and looked, there was this black kid standing there laughing, thinking it's funny. My wife's like, 'Let's get out of here.' It's one of those things, you don't expect it. Your reaction to it is, first of all, quite surprised, then you get so angry, it's like, 'What in the hell's going on there? Why are these guys acting like such hoodlums? What are they picking on anybody for?' We were just like cattle being herded out of the park, and they were picking and choosing who they wanted to beat on."
