Protests continue in Milwaukee to demand justice for Dontre Hamilton, a 31-year-old African-American man shot 14 times and killed by police officer Christopher Manney on April 30. After five months and repeated protests by the Hamilton family, their attorney and community supporters, Manney has still not been charged with any crime by Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm.
On Oct. 10, the Coalition for Justice sponsored another rally and march beginning at Red Arrow Park, the location where Hamilton was killed by Manney. Protesters demanded DA Chisholm charge Manney with at least homicide. The coalition sponsored a call-in day to Chisholm’s office Oct. 6, and is asking supporters of justice to continue contacting the DA’s office: call 414-278-4646 and/or email [email protected].
