‘Peaceful’ protest exposed as a lie

Empower Wisconsin | Sept 28, 2020

MADISON — So much for “peaceful” protests. 

The point man for Wauwatosa’s bogus ad hoc committee to address policing and systemic inequalities was caught on camera threatening a police officer. Not just basic smartphone video, but a police body camera. 

John Larry, chairman of the committee, can be seen in the August video screaming at someone off camera, identified by the Wauwatosa Peace Officers Association (WPOA) as a police lieutenant. 

“You ain’t going to do nothing to me,” Larry shouts. “Put your hands on me! Put your hands on me! I’ll knock the f*@# out of you.”

State Rep. David Bowen (D-Milwaukee), who has been a regular at the incendiary Black Lives Matter protests in Wauwatosa, can be seen trying to pull Larry back from the officer. 

“John, save it. I got you. I got you,” Bowen says. 

Larry threatens the officer again, warning him that if he puts his hands “on another woman” he’ll “slap the shit” out of the lieutenant. 

The police union has called on the painfully Woke Wauwatosa Common Council to disband the ad hoc committee. WPOA has raised concerns about the committee’s anti-police bias. They also note Larry’s ties to the Peoples Revolution, whose members were at the violent protest at a residence where Wauwatosa Police Officer Joseph Mensah was staying, according to police. Protesters vandalized Mensah’s girlfriend’s home and fired a shotgun at the back door.

Two men — Ronald Bell Jr. and William Lofton — were arrested last month on felony charges of second-degree recklessly endangering safety following the protest. 

Mensah is on paid administrative leave while investigators look into the officer’s fatal shooting of 17-year-old Alvin Cole. The black teen allegedly fired a handgun at officers at Mayfair Mall during the Feb. 2 shooting.

After the two men were arrested, Larry appeared at the Wauwatosa police station making demands on behalf of the suspects, mentioning his position on the committee, according to the WPOA. The council has yet to respond to the union or the issues it has raised. 

“However, if the council needs additional proof of our concerns, we are thankful that the new body cams can provide some evidence for them,” John Milotzky, WPOA president wrote in a press release. 

Larry had confirmed in a news article that he was cited in the Aug. 14 incident, but said he was trying to de-escalate the situation. 

“The body camera evidence contradicts Larry’s statement,” Milotzky said. “And it clearly reveals the threatening behavior of Larry,” who has been cited multiple times for his actions in other “peaceful” Black Lives Matter protests in Wauwatosa.
