Supervisor Nicholson Statement on Sterling Brown Incident

Supervisor Nicholson Statement on Sterling Brown Incident

Originally police stated that the Milwaukee Bucks rookie became confrontational over an alleged parking violation which prompted the officers to tase and arrest him. A physical confrontation ensued as officers questioned Brown about the parking violation, ending with cops wrestling him to the ground before using a taser and handcuffing him.

Newly-released police bodycam video shows officers getting rough with National Basketball Association player Sterling Brown during an encounter that reportedly happened in Milwaukee on January 26. When he returned to his vehicle, an officer was waiting and the situation turned tense with the officer repeatedly telling Brown to "back up" and accusing Brown of "being all badass to me".

Two other White police officers arrived at the scene and the incident escalated.

Brown, who is African-American, says the incident was "an attempt at police intimidation" and that it "shouldn't happen to anybody".

The Milwaukee Bucks called the actions of police shameful and inexcusable and said Brown has the team's full support.

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

Milwaukee's police chief says the officers acted 'inappropriately and were recently 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.

U.S. court bars Donald Trump from blocking users on Twitter
Judge Buchwald ruled the plaintiffs "lack standing, however, to sue Sarah Huckabee Sanders , who is dismissed as a defendant". But she stopped short of ordering Trump and his social media director, Dan Scavino , to unblock people.

Later in the video, Brown says "They tased me for no reason" to someone out of view of the camera, prompting the officer who initially confronted him to say Brown "was being an ass" and "trying to hide something".

Sterling Brown issued a statement on his Twitter account. "It's a hard job law enforcement has, but most importantly, we have to restore the trust in this community between our police and our community", said Lucas. "This experience with the Milwaukee Police Department has forced me to stand up and tell my story so that I can help prevent these injustices from happening in the future".

Watch the bodycam video released by the Milwaukee Police Department above. The lack of repercussions for the police officers involved in so many of these cases is offensive.

"I will defend our officers when they are right and will admit when members of our organization are wrong", Morales said in the video.

Most of Milwaukee's aldermen want the city to review MPD training, now that the body camera footage from Sterling Brown's arrest and tasing has been made public.

"There must be mutual respect, and both sides have to figure out how to accomplish this", Brown continued.

"Since 2015, the City of Milwaukee has spent more than $22 million on settlements with litigants accusing police of misconduct".

Irvin's concerns were heightened when Milwaukee's Assistant Police Chief Michael Brunson Sr. warned parishioners at a local church on Sunday that a video of the encounter would soon be released.
