BLM Crowd Protests in Front of Man’s House, Police Arrest Homeowner

Milwaukee police have arrested a man for using a dangerous weapon while intoxicated after he reportedly pointed a firearm at a crowd of Black Lives Matter protestors who had gathered in front of his house.

The 56-year-old man, who police have not identified, was the subject of a video that went viral on social media earlier this week. The video shows a man through the window of a home displaying a pro-Trump flag while a group of people yell at him from the street.

The man can be seen holding what looks like a long gun, and he at one point appears to chamber a round.

“You gonna have bigger problems, man,” someone in the crowd yells. “I would advise you to think twice. I don’t think you know what’s out here, buddy.”

When police arrived, they arrested the man for endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon while under the influence of an intoxicant, disorderly conduct while armed, and bail jumping.

The Milwaukee Police Department released a statement the next day that provided more details about the incident.

The homeowner had been arrested the day before after he reportedly threatened his neighbor while holding a chainsaw. He was booked for disorderly conduct while armed and released.

The protest the next day stemmed from that incident. Police were on the scene during the protest, and were told by one of the protestors that the homeowner “motioned the long gun as if to chamber a round and then pointed it at the crowd.”

Officers made contact with the man and observed that he appeared to be intoxicated. He was subsequently arrested.

Several Black Lives Matter protests have expanded in recent weeks to include individuals who aren’t public figures.

Earlier this month in Rochester, Ny., a group of BLM rioters vandalized a restaurant and terrorized diners without providing a reason for their actions. They kicked out patrons, broke glassware, and destroyed property.

All of this comes as crimes rates spike in major U.S. cities. Acting Milwaukee Police Chief Michael Brunson reported this week that the violent crime rate is rising in Milwaukee, and the homicide rate has doubled since this time last year.

    The Problem was He “POINTED” the weapon at a Protester.

    Keeping in mind that in Orange Co., CA, a home was firebombed and burned in broad daylight by these Black Lie Mob-Miscreants simply for having a Trump sign in their yard. So in this case, and with credible fear for my family’s and my personal safety and property, I would have my WHOLE FAMILY lock-n-load, stand our ground tactically, and see how fast that mob disperses… or…come arrest me for defending my family and property and let the chips fall where they may. Better to be tried by 12 than carried in a box by six.

  • Dusty September 24, 2020, 5:09 pm

    Oddly- in some states- even leftist Washington- displaying /brandishing a firearm at your home or place of business is legal. Intoxicated in public and armed of course is not. The chainsaw incident the previous day, and subsequent charges would not have been “bail jumping”. The report is unclear and imprecise- to be expected from today’s “journalists”…

  • 1American September 21, 2020, 11:10 am

    Black Lies Matter is going to dull one of these stunts in the wrong place. They only pull this crap in areas where people are sympathetic to them. They need to bring their schtick on down to East Texas.

  • JohnL September 19, 2020, 9:50 am

    The headline is misleading. Although I don’t know the specifics, threatening his neighbor with a chainsaw the day before certainly paints a different picture from “Man arrested for defending home from BLM”!

  • Woody W Woodward September 18, 2020, 8:01 pm

    An observation: People who have absolutely no respect for the law, for police officers, for another’s property or right to privacy, or for established authority figures never fail to demand the protection of the law if they think they can use the law or a police officer in order to obtain revenge – – usually just after they have instigated the problem.

  • Peter Brown September 18, 2020, 6:15 pm

    I would think it not beyond the communists to have delivered the man’s favorite alcohol to his home hours before the incident. They are paid stooges/operatives/throwaway goons. Our side, we, must understand that they succeeded in this case and will in other incidents unless good people learn what they can and cannot do.

    The goons want/need incidents! They are taught how to taunt. Had the man not lost his cool and waited for a broken window or kicked-in door, he, or insurance company would be spending a few hundred bucks. Lawyer and court fees, penalties could ruin the poor man with many thousands of bucks spent in efforts to keep him out of jail/prison. In order to survive the communist threat we MUST be stronger than ever and know how to survive.

  • Dustin September 18, 2020, 5:26 pm

    I’m just sick of all this crap, people need to start worrying about their own actions, and stop with the damn protests. You protestors are all criminals in my eyes! The guys had every reason in the world to Holdrege in his home. So he was drinking. I can do whatever the hell I want in my house.
    It also sucks that I cant see anything that I am typing on this comment due to the website possibly making it that way.
    I sure hope people can pull their heads out of their asses and keep to themselves, this country is turning upside down. And its sad that I have to raise my children in this society of liberal hatred.

  • alex gregis September 18, 2020, 2:57 pm

    and the cops bitch when these same people call to defund the police,then the cops continually do shit like this!! maybe they should get rid of the cops,they are only tools for the communist to use,if they aren’t going to back up law abiding people then they can all go to hell,we’ll take out the garbage ourselves!

    • michael September 21, 2020, 2:54 am

      Good to see someone eyes are open. The Police are not your friends. They don’t work for us.

  • Frank James Gaughan September 18, 2020, 2:52 pm

    Many on this discussion board are dismissive of the homeowner’s intoxication as a causal factor in his arrest, saying it was a bad call on the part of the police. Maybe so, but here’s some good advice for everybody.

    We are living in very dangerous times. Logic & common sense have been thrown out the window. Justice and the law are distant cousins — in fact, they’re not even on speaking terms these days.

    If this is what we believe (I sure do!) then believe me: You will want to keep a clear head from now on. It’s the only way and it’s just plain common sense…

    • Michael Brown September 18, 2020, 10:51 pm

      Never were truer words spoken, with-out rancor. On the other hand, I think people need to start cleaning weapons and learn the laws in their state as regards self-defense. Because as you said, the police and the law are being destroyed by antifa and the radical parts of BLM, and if they can’t (or won’t) fight back, we are going to have to!!

  • Humpty Dumpty September 18, 2020, 2:26 pm

    The man was in his own home. He wasn’t publicly inebriated and he brandished a firearm IN HIS OWN HOME. What law did he break?

  • Brian September 18, 2020, 2:14 pm

    While I don’t agree with anything that BLM or Antifa stands for, I have to say the the police did act appropriately in this case. If the man hadn’t been drunk, or hadn’t just been arrested for threatening his neighbor, I would say they should have acted differently. And no, it is not illegal to be drunk on your own property, nor is it illegal to use a gun to protect yourself or your property, but pointing a gun at people that are not on your property is technically illegal. Big difference between what happened in St Louis where the mob broke down a gate to gain enter an early onto private property and then threatened the couple. Besides, the police were already on the scene during this “protests”. The police would have been negligent if they hadn’t done something. You can’t leave a drunk person armed with a gun in a situation like this. Innocent people could have gotten hurt, and by innocent people, I mean his other neighbors or someone not involved in the protests. The idiots shouldn’t have been outside his house, but anyone who is drunk shouldn’t be handling a firearm either.

    • Maduece50 September 23, 2020, 8:52 am

      Well said. We have a guy like this in my small town. I agree with his stance but put the alcohol away. You don’t make good judgment calls while under the influence and it really makes others with similar views look bad.

  • paul September 18, 2020, 1:19 pm

    This is the plan and the police are unfortunately being victimized by the rioters. Are there no disturbing the peace laws in Milwaukee ? If there are why would the cops not disperse the crowd? The answer is there is a well thought out plan to alienate the police from their last allies through arresting a man who is clearly inside his home and preparing to defend his home and himself. This man does not loose his right to defend himself because of the possibly of being over the legal limit. The law covers this condition and favors the homeowner in every state in the union. Cops know that but their commanders insisted it was not valid. They are wrong. Time for the rank and file to stand up. Defend YOURSELF IF NO ONE ELSE in a riot, you will win. Stand up against an illegal order,It is your duty to the people you are sworn to serve and protect. If your choice is to refuse to do what you are sworn to do you are accepting your fate.In the end if this con (the American people) will fight tyranny which the constitution demands we do. That is EACTLY what BLM wants. Anarchy is their goal and each of you who follow illegal orders are enabling them. Say no to the commanders. You will be exonerated. I can also guarantee the men next to you will support you as will the the absolutely overwhelming majority of Americans you are sworn to protect.

  • Ken September 18, 2020, 1:14 pm

    If this ever happens to you…

    1) Don’t drink!
    2) Call 911 and ask for protection.
    3) Turn out your lights.
    4) Leave your front door slightly ajar or closed but unlocked.
    5) Wait quietly in your dark living room with your firearm in your hand.

    Hopefully some of the crowd will breach your doorway before the cops arrive.

    If and when police arrive… stash your firearm so they don’t shoot you by mistake and so they find you to be a reasonable law abiding citizen in fear for his safety.

    After the cops arrive go back to your normal routine until they leave…

    After the cops leave… repeat steps through 5 as necessary.

    Note: Always darken your dwelling when in danger from outside. If your lights are on… the attackers can see you.. If your lights are off… anyone breaching your dwelling will be disoriented as to the layout and that will give you an advantage because you know the layout.

    The guy in this story would have been okay but for the lights and the drinking.

  • Paul September 18, 2020, 12:49 pm

    So let me think about this hmmmm……..Self defense is illegal if you had been drinking….wtf is that?

  • Leonard Stephen September 18, 2020, 12:49 pm

    As far as I know, in Wisconsin it is legal to use lethal force to defend one’s home and property. If the issue is he may have been drunk, remember he was in his home. And, that has not been proven yet, has it?

  • Bill Douglas September 18, 2020, 12:38 pm

    The man is inside his own home and being threatened by the BLM scum, and he gets arrested by the police. Not a good look for the police because the stated goal of BLM is to defund the police, and yet these idiot cops decide to arrest the Trump supporter who was just trying to defend himself from the mob.

  • Marc Kappel September 18, 2020, 12:21 pm

    Ok good, now breathalize everyone in the crowd and arrest anyone with a deadly weapon brandished towards this man and his private property.

  • JonsOn September 18, 2020, 11:55 am

    It should be illegal to disrupt anyone while they are in their home. The man inside has every right to protect himself from these mobs that are known to inflect bodily harm and death on people they don’t like. I hope every voter sees what happens in democrat controlled cities. If you protest and disrupt people in their homes that’s OK. If you are in your home and protect yourself and your family from possible harm you are arrested. This is backwards. If you vote democrat you should take note that that could be you and you will be arrested for protecting yourself. Democrats are not looking out for your best interest.

  • pissedpatriot September 18, 2020, 11:32 am

    Any police officer that follows illegal orders from their politician “Bosses” is not only a coward, but a traitor. Any law enforcement officer in this nation has to take an oath that he/she will defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign or domestic. They take this oath promising before God. It will not help America now, but they will pay in the long run for their duplicity and lies.

    The problem is the Law makers not just the police enforcing those laws.

    • downtoearththinking.com September 18, 2020, 11:42 am

      Actually it is both these police and their lawmakers. Police should NOT follow any such orders as they had a lot of leaway in this matter and could have done this different . I despise over reactive and stand down police and all of them should be fired along with the bad mayors , city councils and DAs who are creating these nightmares !

  • Cal September 18, 2020, 9:39 am

    The police better decide who they side with. The honest, tax paying, hard working, law biding citizens that respect and support them or the human filth that hate them and want them dead. They better decide very soon.

  • Randy Rowley September 18, 2020, 9:27 am

    No, that is not what “we all know” or have experienced. Yes, there are a few bad apples, emphasis on few.

  • Wyatt Earp September 18, 2020, 9:17 am

    Not sure who to believe. But why didn’t cop make the BLM GROUP leave? Are they on their payroll? Man was inside his house! Can do whatever he wants to. It hard to believe that he Threatened his neighbor. Must been something cop threw in. So they could arrested him personally I don’t think the police officer are going to stand up to BLM or ANTIFA. One or two are going get kill soon or later. And it going to be by someone who not going take their COWARD ACT!

  • William September 18, 2020, 7:39 am

    Were any of the scum outside the man’s house arrested and removed from his property or were they allowed to continue destroying his property?

  • Bill Bronaugh September 18, 2020, 7:07 am

    Dont forget now, the police are the good guys, they’re all just honest hard-working people just like us. It’s just those fee bad apples who are the problem. The real problem is that, I believe, the good ones are the few good apples and the 99% are the bad.

    No, I’m not anti-police, just telling the truth we all know. If it wasn’t then why do we see stories like this all the damn time?

    • DNFU September 18, 2020, 5:20 pm

      In Democrat ruined cities I fear you are more correct than anyone would like to think. The Democrat / Leftists do everything in their power to get rid of any police officer who takes his oath to protect the Constitution, the Law, let alone the public citizen seriously. Leftists want to only have their brainwashed minions on staff as police, officers who will always obey their illegal orders no matter how bogus they are.

      If police were on scene why was the thug with the bull horn not arrested for harassing the homeowner? Noise code violation? Communicating threats? Trespassing? Anything to restore peace for the homeowner should have been a viable option, as this thug was desperately trying to escalate this into a violent confrontation.

      Instead the police arrest a man for having a firearm in his own home. How is this legal? Answer it is not legal. This is a pure case of abuse of power. I hope the home owner sues the police and wins a huge settlement for violating his civil rights.

  • Slim September 18, 2020, 6:39 am

    These STUPID FUCKING MORONS go around 100% harassing and threatening people as the Second video shows a moron who of course has his ENTIRE FACE AND HEAD covered walks up to the table and PUSHES ALL THE DRINKS AND food that he could as the BLACK GUY who CLAIM they are there for a peaceful protests can CLEARLY be seen pointing saying I’m SURE at the LEAST “get out of hear” which IMMEDIATELY puts ALL at the table on the defensive AND this is AFTER ALL the white chairs were THROWN from the side walk AT ANYONE left on the RESTAURANTS PROPERTY! How is this NOT A RIOT?! Then after the MORON COWARDS tell EVERYONE to leave with a LITERAL MOB behind them a crap load of MORE MORONS start DESTROYING the blinds owned the restaurant were ALL shoved and opened which is CLEARLY PRIVATE property so that makes ALL there TRESPASSERS AT THE LEAST and these MORONS WONDER WHY THEY KEEP GETTING SHOT!

    And as for the guy who was minding his OWN BUSINESS IN HIS OWN HOUSE messed up a LITTLE by pointing the gun at the people BUT HAD ALL RIGHT to have a gun IN HIS HANDS INSIDE OR OUT of his OWN property as long as he STAYED on his property was arrested when there’s a STUPID MORON on the loud mic saying you don’t know what’s out here LIKE HIS BITCH ASS would have done ANYTHING except RUN IF the POOR GUY IN HIS OWN HOUSE had fired at ANY LOSER in the croud that was CLEARLY there for NO GOOD reasons!!! HILARIOUS how these MORON BLM LOSERS call the COPS on the guy when THEY ARE PROTESTING THE COPS!!!!! So they’re cool with cops when it suits THEM BUT when they’re getting pulled over or ANY other situation they meet up with law enforcement CLAIM it’s because its due to them being SOLELY being BLACK… HYPOCRITES COWARDS!!!!! KNOWINGLY show up to a trump supporter OWN HOME which means to the LOSER BLM COWARDS KMEW he was almost certain to be WHITE and then FULLY ENGULF HIS OWN ENTIRE FRONT YARD OF NOT MORE that we don’t see on video AND THEN SIT AND ANTAGONIZE HIM as they CALL THE COPS WHO THEY ALL WANT DEFUNDED…. AGAIN… HYPOCRITES!!!!!!

    • downtoeraththinking.com September 18, 2020, 11:57 am

      I have noticed too many times that far too many in what might be called the 2A and or gun community are some of the slowest thinkers in America and many times automatically give dimwit and weak minded police a pass for standing down and or arresting the wrong people like this guy in his own home ! Wake the hell up numb skulls ! Part of the insanity today are these kind of wimpy ass cops who go along with the junk destroying USA !

      Of course they are not all bad ones, but there are far too many like this and they should be called out when they do this kind of crap and held accountable and exposed for who and what they really are.

  • Willy September 18, 2020, 6:24 am

    This is all very disturbing, especially the video and that voice than goes along with it. Or society has turned ass backwards. The protestors and rioters are becoming more emboldened as time passes.

  • BUURGA September 18, 2020, 3:44 am

    If the man was INSIDE his home and did not discharge his firearm, why was he arrested? He can twirl that rifle like a baton if he likes.

    • Mark September 18, 2020, 8:22 am

      But he can’t be drunk while he does it. If he was sober, nothing would have happened to him. Heck, if he stayed sober, he wouldn’t be in trouble to begin with.

      And if they’re on his front lawn and he wants them off — call the police. According to the story, they were already there; response time would have been zero. Having called the police, and if nothing happened, he’d be on much solider ground.

      • Gunny8541 September 18, 2020, 11:48 am

        He could have drank after showing his gun. There’s not a damn officer who could write a report solid enough for a conviction. After, 26 years in the business that’s how I would have written my report. That is why I retired. Because a supervisor on scene ordered that arrest. Because that’s what is being hired now in ALL agencies across the United States. So get ready it is going to get worse. I guarantee it.

    • r. stephen shepas September 18, 2020, 12:23 pm

      well written and concise.
      if the homeowner was naked and shook a “floppy” at them, is that a crime too?”
      Hell, I am loaded half the time in my own house. beats driving to a bar and risking a dui.
      like the yuppie prick who got shot in the arm, these guys act with impunity,
      but when confronted with potential force, they wet their pants and cry “momma” or “police.”
      they will find out during/after the election when they get their ass handed to them.
