Milwaukee Officer Shot in 'Vicious' Attack

Another victim in the War on Cops: Milwaukee Police Officer Brandon Baranowski was shot on Sunday at 2:00 AM.

From WISN:

A Milwaukee police officer was shot in a "vicious" attack early Sunday as he sat in his squad car while colleagues investigated a domestic disturbance call, an official said.

The suspected shooter, identified by police as a 20-year-old West Allis man with two felonies on his record, was found dead in a nearby yard, they said.

The incident began as a response to a domestic disturbance call near South 17th Street and West Morgan Avenue at about 2 a.m. During that investigation, someone fired shots into the squad car, striking an officer "multiple" times," Asst. Police Chief William Jessup said in a morning press conference.

Officer Brandon Baranowski, a 31-year-old man with 13 years of service, was taken to Froedtert Hospital for surgery. Milwaukee police Sergeant Tim Gauerke said the injuries were not life-threatening.

"This is just another example of the risks our officers take each and every day to protect these citizens," Jessup said.

It was Baranowski's bullet-proof vest that saved his life, Jessup explained at a Sunday Homicide Review Commission conference.

Thankfully, Officer Baranowski survived the attack.

Hopefully, Obama and other Leftists will stop demonizing the police in the wake of this shooting outbreak targeting law enforcement officers across the country.

They've spent years legitimizing the false narrative of police as racist killers. Time to hold them accountable for their irresponsible rhetoric.
