WAUWATOSA, Wis. (AP) - Police in Wauwatosa are investigating claims made by a suburban Milwaukee police officer who has shot and killed three people in the line of duty during the last five years that violent protests took place outside his home.
Police said in a release that 50 to 60 protesters vandalized Joseph Mensah’s home just after 8 p.m. Saturday, radio station WTMJ reported. Mensah was physically assaulted while trying to talk with the group, according to the release.

According to WTMJ, Mensha said in a Facebook post that protesters “tried to kill me.” Mensha said he was unarmed, and children were inside the home that he was trying to defend. “The irony in all of this is that they chanted Black Lives Matter the entire time, but had zero regard for any of the black children that live there or me, a black man.”
Mensah was suspended in July after a unanimous vote by the Wauwatosa police and fire commission. The vote came one day after the Common Council passed a resolution calling for Mensah’s removal.
