RACINE, WI – Randy Bryce released the following statement about the Sterling Brown arrest video.
“What happened to Sterling Brown is inexcusable. He had a parking violation. He should have simply gotten a parking ticket. Instead, a group of Milwaukee police officers slammed him to the ground, tased him, and used offensive and racist language. This is shameful and absolutely unacceptable. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. Young Black men and women across America are being unlawfully stopped, arrested, beaten, and killed– simply because of their race. It is time politicians stand up and do something before more men and women are traumatized by police brutality.”
