MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Dozens of people rallied in downtown Milwaukee to show solidarity for demonstrators in Ferguson, Missouri who are demanding justice for Michael Brown, the black teenager killed by a police officer.
More than 100 people stopped traffic at a major intersection in downtown Milwaukee and a highway ramp Sunday and rallied at a park where Dontre Hamilton was recently shot and killed by a Milwaukee police officer. The Milwaukee County district attorney is reviewing Hamilton's death. Hamilton's brother Nate was among the demonstrators.
WISN-TV (http://bit.ly/1uMzviq ) reports Police Chief Ed Flynn says that in the big picture his department has the community's support and realizes that being an officer is a complex job.
