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

Originally police stated that the Milwaukee Bucks rookie became confrontational over an alleged parking violation which prompted the officers to tase and arrest him. Multiple officers gather around Brown at his vehicle and ask him questions.

The police in USA city of Milwaukee have apologized to National Basketball Association player Sterling Brown for his January arrest that started with a parking violation and escalated to include use of a stun gun, saying some members of the force had been disciplined. "So if there is ever an incident where one of our members makes a mistake, unnecessarily escalating a situation, I am going to be honest and transparent about it". Police arrested Brown but he was not charged; he only received a parking citation.

"My experience in January with the Milwaukee Police Department was wrong and shouldn't happen to anybody".

Brown announced that he will be taking legal action against the Milwaukee Police Department, but here's what they have to say.

We've posted the video below for observation purposes only and we do warn that the footage may be disturbing to some.

As the video was being released, the Milwaukee police chief apologized to Brown, a 23-year-old African-American, and said officers had been disciplined.

"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 statement read. After more cops arrived on scene, the Bucks' guard has a conversation with them for several minutes before he is wrestled to the ground.

"The common denominator in all of these situations has been racism towards the minority community, the abuse of power, and the lack of accountability for officers involved", Brown said.

In order to truly protect and serve our community as a whole, we need a police department that sees us not as threats or problems but as the human beings that we are.

The Milwaukee Bucks have also released a statement.

Police did not identify the races of the officers, but most of the officers in the video appeared to be white.

In recent years that's been due, in part, to incidents of excessive use of force on black men, and numerous illegal strip and body cavity searches by police.

Leon Young told ABC News that Morales told him and other state lawmakers Thursday morning that one sergeant and two officers were disciplined in the incident, but said the chief told the lawmakers that statutory reasons prevented him from disclosing how they were punished.

"Criminal charges against Mr".

He noted that "There must be mutual respect, and both sides have to figure out how to accomplish this".

The beating sheds more light on the issue of police brutality.

Also, the use of body cameras worn by Milwaukee officers has not reduced use-of-force incidents, according to a recently published Urban Institute study.
