Fallout From Release Of Bucks Player Video

Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales arrives to issue a statement in conjunction with the release of police body camera video of the January 26, 2018 tasering arrest of Milwaukee Bucks guard Sterling Brown, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, May 23, 2018.

They've released footage of the incident.


During the encounter Mr.

The police chief, Alfonso Morales, did not provide the officers' names or how they were punished, but that they "were recently disciplined".

Irvin told the Chicago Sun-Times that Brown, a Maywood native who starred at Proviso East High School, comes from a great family, with a father who serves as a suburban police officer. At least two other officers were suspended, one for 10 days and another for 15.

"My experience in January with the Milwaukee Police Department was wrong and shouldn't happen to anybody", Brown said in a statement released by the Bucks.

Police officers who have shown an inability to remain calm and respectful when confronting someone over a parking violation should not be entrusted with the power and authority that comes with being a Milwaukee police officer.

The video shows Brown telling an officer not to touch him as he approaches the passenger door of his auto. Brown replies, "Don't touch me".

"Back up", the officer says repeatedly to Brown, before saying, "I will do what I want, all right?"

Barely a minute has passed when the officer calls for an extra squad vehicle. One officer yelled at Brown to take his hands out of his pockets. Protests grew when Dontre Hamilton, a Black man, was killed by officer Christopher Manney, who shot him 14 times on a park bench in 2014. "And I'm going to be honest with you, we're going to need your support during the challenges".

Milwaukee NAACP President Fred Royal says it's disturbing that an officer "would incite an argument over a parking citation".

No seeding for Serena
Maria Sharapova , a noted rival, said "It's such an incredible effort for a woman to come back from physically, emotionally". Williams seemed to hint at her displeasure in a tweet on Monday, saying she was still drug-tested despite her low ranking.

Comcast Preparing "Superior" Bid to Purchase Fox
To be clear, though, Comcast's proposal would not include Fox's other branches, such as their news and business networks. In December, Walt Disney announced an agreement to acquire some of Fox's assets for about $52 billion in stock.

Rand runs as Turkey props up lira with massive emergency rate hike
Erdogan also hurt the lira last week by saying he would grant greater powers for presidents over monetary policy. Following the bank's decision, the dollar/lira rate fell steeply to below 4.60.

Criminal charges against Brown were not pursued. "I'm sorry this incident escalated to this level".

Donovan says: "Since 2015, the City of Milwaukee has spent more than $22 million on settlements with litigants accusing police of misconduct". We are doing that.

"I believe that this is a situation that could have been defused, and obviously it wasn't", he said.

Morales did not take questions.

Some leaders are anxious about how the Sterling Brown incident could affect the already tense police-community relations.

"What should have been a simple parking ticket turned into an attempt at police intimidation, followed by the unlawful use of physical force, including being handcuffed and tased, and then unlawfully booked", he said.

"Situations like mine and worse happen every day in the black community", Brown added.

The Bucks issued a team statement supporting Brown.

On Twitter, Brown, the son of a retired IL police officer, pledged to take legal action against the Milwaukee Police Department, but called on his supporters to respond peacefully.

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