The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department released 911 audio from the opening night of State Fair. These tapes display the graphic details of the attacks, some of which were racially motivated. We also spoke with someone who could put that part of the story in perspective.
Most callers tell dispatchers they see a racially motivated melee. One caller told dispatchers, “A whole bunch of black dudes f—– jumped on me. I’m bleeding all over.”
West Allis Police recently released a statement on what took place at State Fair on opening night. They say there are currently nine assaults, one robbery without a weapon and one attempted robbery with a weapon being investigated.
Investigators are cooperating with the Milwaukee Police Department to identify the people who perpetrated the opening night crimes. The suspects have been described as African Americans. The victims were either Caucasian or Hispanic.
