On Tuesday night, violent rioters attacked Kenosha and Madison — which both have Democrat mayors — as Wisconsin Democratic Governor Tony Evers failed to stop the violent riots from spreading after they began on Sunday night over an officer-involved shooting.

The violence came after Evers immediately moved to criticize the way that law enforcement responded to the domestic incident call on Sunday that resulted in a man, who was black, being shot multiple times. Evers’ rush to criticize the police came while he admitted that they did not have all the facts of the case.

A furniture store in Kenosha was destroyed, another car dealership was attacked, and the Community Corrections Division building went up in flames. Multiple reporters said that those involved were Black Lives Matter activists.
