Two can play that game …
In an ironic twist of fate, on Friday anonymous pro-police “vandals” “defaced” a “Defund the Police” mural outside Milwaukee City Hall.
According to Urban Milwaukee, the original mural was painted Wednesday “without any city permits” by a group of 30 so-called anti-cop “activists.”
But two nights later, it appears that a group of anonymous pro-cop vandals decided to give the left-wing “activists” a taste of their own medicine.
“The mural, which runs on N. Water St. from E. Wells St. to E. Kilbourn Ave., now spells out ‘Defend the Police.’ The ‘D’ is now painted blue, the first ‘E’ is covered and the ‘U’ has been replaced with an ‘E,'” Urban Milwaukee reported Friday.

Oh, the irony.
For weeks left-wing extremists across the nation have toppled statues, vandalized streets, harassed bystanders, attacked the police, looted stores, burnt down businesses (and sometimes even police precincts), all while being defended by the left.
So what inspired pro-police activists to finally hit back? Urban Milwaukee seems to suspect it may have been a Facebook post published Thursday by city Alderman Bob Donovan.
Look at the post below:
See what he did? He used a photo-editing tool to cross out the “Defund the Police” mural with a blue line in support of the police.
The bad news — or at least for those who support the police — is that the so-called “vandalism” (can you vandalize vandalism, though?) has since been repaired.
“FOX6 News spotted another paint job underway — reverting the spelling back to ‘Defund the Police,'” local station WITI reported late Friday.
Speaking with Urban Milwaukee, far-left “activist” Jeremy Wilbur — the leader of the “activists” who’d painted the original mural — expressed anger at the pro-police “vandals” who’d ruined his apparent work of art, calling them “cowards.”
Yet Wilbur had nothing to say when far-left extremists reportedly showed up outside Donovan’s home this week and chalked “Black Lives Matter” on his sidewalk.
“Protesters visited my home last night — they screamed and shouted, ranted and raved, disrupted my neighborhood, inconvenienced my neighbors, graffitied my sidewalk and intimidated my wife and daughter,” he revealed on Facebook early Friday.
“I must say it’s a very sad day when a private citizen cannot exercise his first amendment rights without being confronted with this nonsense.”
Look at his post below:

One of the key narratives behind BLM is the false belief that police officers are indiscriminately gunning down “innocent” black criminal suspects.
Yet amid the ongoing BLM protests that came about as a result of Minneapolis black man George Floyd’s death, there’s been an upsurge in violence.
“The city has recorded 86 homicides in 2020, double the 43 recorded through the same date last year,” Urban Milwaukee notes. “The number of non-fatal shootings has gone from 182 to 273 year over year, a 50 percent increase.”
But this isn’t an example of cops killing people — it’s an example of the elephant in the room that BLM refuses to address: People killing people.
In Chicago, another city that’s been a hotbed of BLM activity, 258 blacks have reportedly been killed this year alone. But for some reason, BLM doesn’t care.
And though violent crime is clearly the issue plaguing the Democrat-run city, the police are whom its city council members are targeting.
“Some City Council members are advocating for Chicago to join Minneapolis, Minnesota, New York City and Los Angeles to seriously consider shifting funding away from its police department,” Block Chicago Club reported last month.
“At least nine aldermen say they support examining the police budget and reallocating some of that funding into programming like social services, mental health and community interventions that help prevent violence and reduce the need for policing.”
The only good news for Chicago residents is that, surprisingly, the city’s Democrat mayor has no interest in defunding the police.
Lightfoot rejects calls to defund the Chicago Police Department, as called for by @ChicagoCityDSA.
“I think the people in our neighborhoods who want and have been begging for more police support,” Lightfoot says.
