BURN DOWN WHITE SUBURBS, SISTER OF MAN KILLED BY MILWAUKEE POLICE URGES RIOTERS
Video footage shows the sister of the man shot dead by police in Milwaukee calling on rioters to burn down white suburbs instead of their own neighborhoods.
“Burning down sh*t ain’t gonna help nothin’,” yells Sherelle Smith.
“You’re burnin’ down sh*t we need in our community.”
“Take that sh*t to the suburbs. Burn that sh*t down!” she demands.
“We need our sh*t! We need our weave! I don’t wear it, but we need it!”
According to police, body camera footage shows 23-year-old Sylville K. Smith aim a gun at officers before he was shot dead by an African-American cop.
The incident sparked a wave of violent unrest that continued through Sunday night.
Milwaukee is the most segregated metropolitan area in the United States, with whites almost exclusively living in the suburbs.
