Black Lives Matter mobs were caught on tape vandalizing homes in Wisconsin by throwing rocks through windows on a residential street following the decision to not charge a black cop for fatally shooting a teen who was firing a gun.

Video showed multiple people running up to homes in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. The sound of breaking glass and car horns was also heard as people repeatedly hurled heavy objects through windows.

"That's people's houses!" one woman screamed, as others tried to stop the mob.

"That's their f------ home — it's not their fault!" another man shouted.

"Do you have any idea how many Democrats, how many MPS teachers, union members, other people that support you live on this street? Police your protest! Show some respect!," a resident complained to protesters.

Other footage showed mobs cheering in celebration as they smashed business' windows. One man walked along hitting every window with a hammer to ensure they were all broken. Windows at several businesses on the city's north side had been smashed in, including a pharmacy, coffee shop, wall coverings store, cleaner, and fitness center.

Wauwatosa police tweeted warnings to locals to "shelter in their homes, lock their doors, and move away from windows."

Police eventually used tear gas on rioters who were marching around a line of National Guardsmen protecting Wauwatosa City Hall. Police said the rioters "continued to disobey lawful orders to disperse."

Hundreds of National Guard troops were set in place after a curfew had been enforced in anticipation of a violent reaction over the charging decision against Officer Joseph Mensah for shooting 17-year-old Alvin Cole after the teen fired a stolen gun. The black officer was not charged after it was ruled he "had an actual subjective belief that deadly force was necessary and that belief was objectively reasonable."

In a 14-page letter, Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm said evidence showed Cole fled from police while carrying a stolen handgun. Chisholm cited squad car audio evidence, along with testimony from Mensah and two fellow officers, which showed Cole had fired a shot while fleeing and refused commands to drop the gun.
