It's a new year, but the stale anti-police narrative isn't being allowed to fade away.
Jesse Jackson will be in Milwaukee today to reinvigorate the anti-police contingent.
From FOX6 News:
Rev. Jesse Jackson and his Rainbow/PUSH Coalition will be in Milwaukee on Friday, January 2nd. A rally is planned for Friday afternoon. Demonstrators will meet in downtown Milwaukee’s Red Arrow Park in support of Dontre Hamilton.This is what makes no sense.
...The United States Attorney has announced the United States Department of Justice will undertake a federal review of this case to determine if, under federal civil rights law, there is a basis, both legal and factual, upon which a federal civil rights prosecution may be premised. This review will be conducted by the FBI, the Office of the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, and the Civil Rights Division.
One of the family’s attorneys says they’ve had several discussions with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and they believe that a federal investigation will prove their case and they hope to see charges.
Hamilton’s family attorney says a civil lawsuit is also currently in the works.
The U.S. Department of Justice is doing a federal review of the case, AND a civil lawsuit is "in the works."
Sounds like the system is working as it should.
Why shut down the freeway?
It's not as if the Hamilton family is being denied access to seek what they believe is justice.
Why is Jesse Jackson's assistance necessary?
...Last Saturday, December 27th, Dontre Hamilton’s family members and members of the Coalition for Justice made a trip to Chicago to join Rev. Jackson and the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition for a rally. Rev. Jackson has promised to work with the family and help shine a national spotlight on the case.HEY! YOU CAN'T WALK ON THE FREEWAY AND SHUT IT DOWN!
...The Coalition for Justice has been organizing demonstrations since Hamilton was shot and killed. Most of those demonstrations have taken place in Red Arrow Park and in downtown Milwaukee. On a couple of occasions, protesters have been arrested after making their way to Milwaukee County’s freeway system.
The most recent arrests came last Friday, December 26th when members of “Occupy the Hood” hosted a demonstration, gathering near 26th and Burleigh.
Seventy-four protesters were arrested when they made their way to I-43 on December 19th.
This past Monday, December 29th — one week after Chisholm announced his decision, a group of protesters held a news conference, saying they believe they’re being punished and intimidated just for exercising their First Amendment rights.
Engaging in that behavior should result in arrest.
It's ridiculous to claim such a dangerous stunt is a First Amendment right.
The "Occupy the Hood" movement has been around for years. It's a national thing, brought to you by the "Occupy Wall Street" anarchists.
Same extreme Leftist, anti-capitalist rhetoric.
Calling All Concerned Citizens of Milwaukee:Don't think for a moment that this group is not anti-police.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! We just want to thank all of you that rocked with us in 2014, and help bring attention and awareness to Dontre Hamilton’s case and the Milwaukee fight for justice. It was truly amazing to see all of your faces and stand alongside you to fight for freedom in our city. NOW WE HAVE TO GET BACK TO OUR FIGHT FOR JUSTICE! LET’S GO!
We will be gathering at Red Arrow Park (1000 N. Water St.) on Friday, January 2nd at 2:30pm for a National March and Press Conference with the Rainbow Push Coalition to announce in MKE the Federal Investigation into the murder of Dontre Hamilton.
Please join us at 2.30pm at Red Arrow Park (our ground zero, where Dontre Hamilton was shot 14 times by former Milwaukee Police Officer Christopher Manney). From there we will march down to the Federal Building to join with Reverend Jessie Jackson & the Rainbow Push Coalition where together we will host a joint press conference and subsequent march back to Red Arrow Park together.
Once back at Red Arrow we will do a small rally and address the crowd to give logistics for what’s coming next. We will leave Read Arrow Park shortly thereafter together as an escorted processional to Holy Temple First Born Church (4960 N. 18th Street). The processional will line up along Water Street, with the first car beginning at Buffalo Wild Wings (1123 N. Water St.).
We are asking that everyone join our processional to the church for a mass community gathering (beginning at 6pm), where we will be joined by Reverend Jackson and many of the families who have lost loved ones to police violence and brutality. We will host a community meeting where we will discuss next steps and how to elevate our fight, to ensure that we get justice for Dontre Hamilton as well as all of the families of this city who have been wronged by our Police Department.
Please join us for the national march and press conference at Red Arrow at 2.30pm, then the processional and community meeting at Holy Temple First Born at 5.30pm. We hope to see you there.
Note: If you cannot join us for the march and processional please join us directly at the church at 5:30pm. The meeting will begin at 6pm.

They are the enemies of liberty, personal achievement, and personal responsibility.
Here's their philosophy in a nutshell:
OBAMA: YOU DIDN'T BUILD THAT.Don't be fooled into thinking this rally is about the Dontre Hamilton case.
"We are asking that everyone join our processional to the church for a mass community gathering (beginning at 6pm), where we will be joined by Reverend Jackson and many of the families who have lost loved ones to police violence and brutality.

Justice for Dontre Hamilton isn't the issue.
Fundamentally transforming the country is.
