The violence that has been ongoing in the streets of Kenosha is seeing escalation. Police have reported that they are looking for a man who was armed with a rifle after two individuals were shot and killed on Tuesday night with a third one reportedly being injured. Of the two victims who were killed, one was shot in the head while another one was shot in the chest. They have not been identified yet.

The shootings happened on the third night of mayhem and violence in the city of Kenosha. The riots happened after a black man was shot in the back by police officers. It has been revealed that the black man has fought with the police prior to the shooting and he was shot because he refused to obey the orders of the police and he was trying to reach for something inside his vehicle. He also has a history of criminal behavior. All of those things are lost on the Black Lives Matter activists who are now using the incident to go out and riot on the streets again.
Things were made worse when Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers refused the offered help from the federal government in stopping the riots. The result was that small businesses throughout the city have been torched and destroyed.
Earlier, Evers has condemned the police officers for the shooting, basically accusing them of racism. Now he is facing mounting pressure for the poor manner that he is handling the crisis. “We cannot allow the cycle of systemic racism and injustice to continue,” Ever said, “We also cannot continue going down this path of damage and destruction.”
