Milwaukee police violently arrest black National Basketball Association rookie for acting like a 'd*ck'

On Thursday evening, Phillip Atiba Goff, the president and co-founder of the Center for Policing Equity, released a statement condemning the Milwaukee Police Department's actions.

The city of Milwaukee braced itself for enormous backlash after a body cam video released Wednesday showed National Basketball Association rookie Sterling Brown get violently tackled to the ground and Tased by multiple officers over a minor parking violation.

Eventually, the situation calmed down and Brown could be seen talking to one of the officers, debating over who initiated the incident.

In the video, an officer approached Brown after noticing his Mercedes sedan was parked across two disabled spots at the drugstore. Whether the department plans to make changes after this incident was also a big question, especially since this is the same department that was associated with former Milwaukee County sheriff and controversial Trump surrogate David Clarke before his resignation last August. Black and Latino drivers there are more likely to be stopped and are more likely to be searched than white people.

"These are simple questions, and you're being all badass", the officer said to Brown, according to ESPN, before telling Brown that he "had time to park across these lanes here, so we're going to wait a little longer". That stuck with him and made him realize the power and responsibility officers have. The Justice Department didn't charge Manney, who was only fired.

Brown may have had similar training, which may have led to his calmer demeanor during his arrest outside Walgreens near 27th and National on January 26.

The officer said he shot Hamilton 14 times in self-defence because they got into a struggle when the officer frisked him for weapons. "There must be mutual respect and both sides have to figure out how to accomplish this".

Brown's team, the Milwaukee Bucks, labelled the incident "shameful and inexcusable".

"I am sorry this incident escalated to this level", Morales said.

"When I took office I vowed to rebuild trust between the Milwaukee police department and the community. Sterling has our full support as he shares his story and takes action to provide accountability", it said. "The common denominator in all these situations has been racism towards the minority community, the abuse of power, and the lack of accountability for officers involved".

"Unfortunately, this isn't an isolated case".

Brown said he chose to speak up about the incident on behalf of Laquan McDonald, Stephon Clark and others in the black community who have died in encounters with police. "It shouldn't require an incident involving a professional athlete to draw attention to the fact that vulnerable people in our communities have experienced similar, and even worse, treatment".

The beating sheds more light on the issue of police brutality. Meanwhile, community groups in Milwaukee are weighing in, too - criticizing police for how they handled Brown.

"We're taking the situation seriously and we're encouraging the police department to act on the information that they get from the video and we want to send a message loud and clear to the community that effort will be put in place to try to safeguard this type of activity from being commonplace". "We have hundreds of interactions with citizens each day, and those contacts end positively".
