OFFICER ATTACKED AT HOME WITH KIDS INSIDE
A Black Wisconsin police officer said he was nearly killed Saturday,
After a group of protesters gathered outside his girlfriend’s house where he was staying and fired several shots inside.
The confrontation unfolded around 8 p.m. after a group of about 50 to 60 people gathered outside a private residence in Wauwatosa,
About 7 miles west of Milwaukee, police said in a statement.

OFFICER TWEET AFTERWARD
The protesters began vandalizing the home.
Officer Mensah, who was unarmed,
Tried to establish a dialog with the protesters outside but was physically assaulted, police said.
As Mensah retreated back into the house, an armed protester fired a single blast from a shotgun into the backdoor.
Mensah later wrote that the shotgun round “missed me by inches.”
“Not once did I ever swing back or reciprocate any hate that was being directed at me,” he said.
“I am all for peaceful protests, even against me, but this was anything beyond peaceful.
They threw toilet paper in her trees, broke her windows, and again, shot at both of us as they were trying to kill me.”
Mensah said there were children inside the home.
“The irony in all of this is that they chanted Black Lives Matter the entire time,
But had zero regard for any of the black children that live there or me, a black man,” Mensah wrote.
