Violence and protests erupted in Milwaukee overnight after a man was fatally shot by police during a foot chase. Police said the victim, 23, was armed with a handgun and shot dead by an officer after fleeing a traffic stop on Milwaukee’s north side Saturday afternoon.

Hours later angry crowds took to the streets, smashing a police car and setting fire to another. One officer was injured by a flying brick; a gas station and auto-parts store were set alight. Police said gunshots were heard. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett pleaded for calm at an early morning news conference, asking residents to “do everything” to help restore order.

The mayor said some involved in the disturbances took to social media early in the evening to encourage others to come out and participate in trouble-making. He said many of them were young people, and he urged parents to keep tight reins on their children to avoid a repeat of Saturday night.

“Our police officers are doing everything they can to restore order,” he said. But he said everyone needed to help restore calm.

“If you love your son, if you love your daughter, text them, call them, pull them by their ears, get them home.”

The mayor said police had “shown an amazing amount of restraint” Saturday evening.

What are the limits of copyright? For example, can you copyright a philosophy? The Bible for example existed before copyright law, but what if Jesus were invented today? He would be intellectual property.

As you can see in the above film, Star Trek isn’t just another TV show. It’s much more. Gene Roddenberry intended to make it a philosophy of the future. I can’t help to think that in the court battles between CBS/Paramount vs. Axanar Productions that the issues are far deeper than simple infringement. I’m still boycotting Start Trek Beyond because the shear stupidity of such a lawsuit is in complete contrast to the vision the Star Trek represents.

“I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart,” Malik Obama told The Post from his home in the rural village of Kogelo. “Make America Great Again” is a great slogan. I would like to meet him.”

Obama, 58, a longtime Democrat, said his “deep disappointment” in his brother Barack’s administration has led him to recently switch allegiance to “the party of Lincoln.”

The last straw, he said, came earlier this month when FBI Director James Comey recommended not prosecuting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of a private e-mail servers while secretary of state.

“She should have known better as the custodian of classified information,” said Obama.

He’s also annoyed that Clinton and President Obama killed Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy, whom he called one of his best friends. “I still feel that getting rid of Khadafy didn’t make things any better in Libya,” he said. “My brother and the secretary of state disappointed me in that regard.”

But what bothers him even more is the Democratic Party’s support of same-sex marriage. “I feel like a Republican now because they don’t stand for same-sex marriage, and that appeals to me,” he said.

Obama believes strongly in the institution of marriage — so strongly that he has at least three current wives, although press reports have put the number as high as 12.

When asked by The Post how many wives and children he has, Obama demurred.

“That’s personal,” he said.

I watched Trump’s acceptance speech at the convention and his behavior since and he’s is acting like a brat. I’m talking about this ongoing feud between Trump and Cruz. In the primary it was amusing. It was refreshing to get some unfiltered opinions, no matter how weird they may be.

But the primary is over and now it’s time to pivot to the issue of “What are you going to be like as a president?” issue. So I was expecting Mr. Trump to be inspirational and adult, and I’m not seeing that. Trump is focused on this personal grudge match to get even with Ted Cruz. This is what ill behaved children do. Does it really matter if “Ted Cruz’s father hung with Lee Harvey Oswald” after the primary is over?

Donald – you won. You beat Cruz. Declare victory and move on. I have to ask the question, “Are you going to at least grow up and act like an adult?” It’s time for Trump to start acting like a president. Donald, show me your presidential side.

I’m not going to see the Star Trek Beyond movie for 2 reasons. The first reason is because of the lawsuit by CBS/Paramount against the fan film Axanar. The second reason is that this is Star Trek in name only. It’s not real Star Trek. J,J, Abrams has butchered Star Trek the way he butchered Star Wars. It uses Star Trek names and references but it’s just another sci-fi action film. I then we should all #BoycottStarTrek

This was such a stupid gaffe that it almost seems intentional, like someone in Clinton’s camp got to Melania’s speechwriter. What are these people thinking????


His days were numbered, in more ways than one.

Anton Sterling Execution on Baton Rouge.

Black Man executed in Minnesota by police. (Philando Castile)

In Dallas it’s the officers that got executed by snipers. Very new story so less information known.

None of these executions are justified. The first 2 are very shocking in that it’s totally clear that the police just decided they were going to kill a ni**er. Especially the second one. The guy is pulled over for a busted tail light that actually wasn’t busted. The cop just shoots the guy 4 times.
