Terrorizing Wauwatosa police officer Joseph Mensah
State Rep. David Bowen, D-Milwaukee, admitted taking a leadership role in similar intimidation displays outside of the homes of Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber, former Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales, Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
“My presence as an elected official speaks volumes to people we come in contact with,” Bowen said.
In other words, he isn’t just a face in the crowd; he is an active participant and vocal leader whose position legitimizes (in his mind, anyway) the mob’s actions.
Now that those actions have turned criminal and terroristic in nature, Bowen must be held accountable for them.
