MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Protesters rallying in support of the Dontre Hamilton family temporarily blocked traffic on Interstate-43 and on city streets shortly after 4 p.m. on Friday evening, December 19th. Milwaukee police and sheriff’s deputies made dozens of arrests in relation to the protests.
The peaceful protests turned disruptive as about a hundred people headed to the interstate. Two groups broke off — blocking on-ramps and chanting with bullhorns. Those protesters were met by police and one by one, they were arrested. The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office says 73 adults and one juvenile were arrested Friday evening.
I would have been very, very ticked to get caught in this.
