Milwaukee Cops Again Attack Community Residents, Arrest at Least 10, Support Needed

Make contributions for bail at: Disarm, Divest, Dismantle and Abolish the Police

From community activist about August 30 police attacks and arrests: “So the way Milwaukee Police Department attempts to de escalate and begin to repair relations with the community is by lifting the curfew on Sherman Park and showing an enormous amount of police presence at the Park and the Sylville Smith memorial. Then they detained an ACLU advocate/legal observer/lobbyist Jarrett English, a Wisconsin State Representative Jonathan Brostoff, detaining a local community leader Frank “Nitty” II, another local community leader Vaun Mayes Bey, and another local community leader Gab Taylor. This is NOT how you regain trust and de escalate a volatile and delicate situation. It is too little too late to rectify anything after showing this level of disregard for those who have been keeping the peace in that area -the trust is certainly irreparably damaged after this debacle.”
