According to USA Today, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is worried about Police backlash following the upcoming release of the arrest and tasering of Milwaukee Bucks Rookie Sterling Brown:
I’m going to let the release of that speak for itself, but yes, I definitely have concerns after watching that video.
Sources, who have viewed the video, say that Brown doesn’t appear to be combative or threatening in any way to the Police prior to the incident:
This could be bad…The player doesn’t appear to be provocative at all.
On January 26, Brown allegedly parked across to handicap parking spot, and instead of asking Brown to move like normal, living humans, with souls, the six responding Officers, instead, electrocuted Brown and booked him into jail.
Again, that’s six Officers. Just one Sterling Brown.
Brown did not receive any criminal charges for his arrest.
However, the Officers still made sure to issue Brown a parking ticket after tasering and arresting him though—presumably to cover up their own tracks.
Sterling Brown is the younger brother of ex-NBAer Shannon Brown.
The video could be released as soon as Wednesday.
