GCW is working to seek justice for Mr. Brown’s civil rights against the Milwaukee Police Department. With cases like this, GCW has worked hard to bring the story forward and cultivate conversations around civil rights issues.
In a recently released video, Milwaukee police confront Sterling Brown on January 26, 2018 for a parking violation. The body camera footage shows Mr. Brown wrongfully being thrown to the ground and tased at a local Walgreens. Mr. Brown released his statement regarding the incident earlier this week.
Sterling Brown states, “This is bigger than me. My family, friends, legal team, Priority Sports, Milwaukee Bucks, the black community and the communities of all who stand against injustice plan to continue the fight. Peaceful support to ensure no further damage to our community is the only way to respond. I know many of you will share my anger and frustration, but for our community to progress and grow, we need to build on what we already have and not destroy it. I will take legal action against the Milwaukee Police Department to continue forcing change in our community.”
