‘ENOUGH!’ Trump Sends Feds to Wisconsin to ‘Restore Law and Order’

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he will be sending federal law enforcement agents to Wisconsin to help restore calm after multiple days of civil unrest.

The city of Kenosha has been rocked with riots since a black man was shot by officers on Sunday.

“We will NOT stand for looting, arson, violence, and lawlessness on American streets. My team just got off the phone with Governor [Tony] Evers who agreed to accept federal assistance (Portland should do the same!),” the president announced on Twitter. “TODAY, I will be sending federal law enforcement and the National Guard to Kenosha, WI to restore LAW and ORDER!”

Riots in the city peaked early Wednesday morning as armed counter protesters pushed back against angry mobs. Two people were shot dead and another victim was injured, say police.

Wisconsin’s governor, a Democrat,initially rebuffed an offer of 500 additional Guard members, instead seeking only 250. It is not immediately clear how many will now be deployed to the state.

HERO COP: Armed officer credited with saving ‘countless’ lives after man opens fire at Illinois high school

Dixon, Ill. — Dixon police school resource officer Mark Dallas is being credited with stopping a student armed with a gun at Dixon High School this morning.

A 19-year-old male who had recently been expelled from the school was shot and wounded by Dallas at around 8 a.m. on Wednesday morning after the man appeared at the school and opened fire.

The suspect, identified as Matt Milby, is now in police custody.

“I could not be more proud of the police officer and the way he responded to the situation,” Dixon Police Chief Steven Howell said at a news conference following the incident. “With shots ringing out through the hallways of the school, he charged towards the suspect and confronted him head-on.”

“Because of his heroic actions countless lives were saved. We are forever indebted to him for his service and his bravery,” Howell added.

All Dixon Public Schools were initially placed on lockdown, but only the high school remained locked down late Wednesday morning.

No other injuries were reported.

‘ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!’: Two officers killed in less than 24 hours as war on police continues

PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY, MD. — An officer shot and killed on Wednesday became the second American policeman to die in the line of duty in less than 24 hours.

The officer, who died while attempting to intervene in a domestic violence dispute, has not yet been identified. The suspect police say responsible for the officer’s death was shot and killed after police returned fire.

“With broken hearts, we are announcing that one of our officers was shot and killed today,” the Prince George’s Police Department wrote on Twitter (https://tinyurl.com/y7f8gmxj). “The brave officer was shot while stepping in to protect a woman threatened in a domestic situation. Please keep his family and our department in your prayers.”

“The suspect who killed our officer was shot and killed by responding law enforcement. More details later,” the department wrote in a follow-up tweet.

The Maryland shooting came less than 24 hours after another officer was shot and killed in the line of duty in Alabama.

Officer Justin Billa of the Mobile Police Department was gunned down after a murder suspect barricaded himself in his Alabama home at around 12:30 a.m. The suspect, in Billa’s murder, identified as Robert Hollie, was also pronounced dead at the scene.

It is not yet known whether Billa shot himself or if he was killed by police.

Billa, who had been named Officer of the Month in 2016, spoke of the dangers of the job during an interview with FOX 10 (https://tinyurl.com/ya7ckktl).

“She tells me she loves me every day before I leave for work. And I make sure I do the same,” Billa said of his wife.

He leaves behind a one-year-old son.

Chuck Canterbury, president of the National Fraternal Order of Police, says something must be done.

“When will our nation wake up and face that the steady increase of attacks on law enforcement is making all of us less safe,” Canterbury said earlier this month in the wake of an officer shooting in Ohio. “Enough is enough!”

To date, 15 officers have been killed in the line of duty in 2018 (https://tinyurl.com/y8s8gv6m). A total of 129 officers died last year.

Funeral arrangements for the officers are currently pending.
