If he had an ounce of integrity or morality, he would have denounced his comrades and resigned by now. Instead, he continues to egg on the violence and spread lies. What a rotten human being.
Democratic State Representative David Bowen has admitted to being part of a group of people that assaulted and fired a shotgun at Wauwatosa Police Officer Joseph Mensah on Saturday night.
“In my time at the protest in front of Mensah’s home, I personally felt threatened by his actions: spraying pepper spray into the crowd, yelling and inviting protesters to fight him, [and] taking his big dog out to potentially attack people,” Bowen said in a statement released Monday accusing both Mensah and the Wauwatosa Police Department of lying about the group’s actions.
Video of the attack on Mensah’s girlfriend’s home provided to “The Dan O’Donnell Show” contradicts Bowen’s statement, as dozens of people threw toilet paper and other objects at the house and screamed obscenities at Mensah and his family before at least one gunshot was fired. Mensah’s girlfriend, a law enforcement officer who is not being named to protect her identity, was violently assaulted and posted pictures of her injuries to social media.
Her children were in the home when one of the attackers fired a shotgun into it.
