Joint Statement on the death of Officer Michael Michalski
From Alderman Terry Witkowski, Alderman Ashanti Hamilton, Alderman Michael J. Murphy, Alderman Jóse G. Pérez, Alderman Nicholas Kovac, Alderman Mark Borkowski, Alderman Tony Zielinski, Alderman Bob Donovan, Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, Alderman Khalif J. Rainey, and Alderman Robert Bauman
As members of the Common Council we represent diverse districts across the City of Milwaukee, and each of us interacts with Milwaukee Police officers regularly in the course of our duties. We get to know many of the officers and we establish a working rapport and a common bond of working together to make our neighborhoods safer and better.
That bond is what makes the death of our officer last evening so incredibly painful and sad. We grieve for our fallen officer and his family, and we offer our heartfelt sympathies to the officer’s family and to each and every member of the Milwaukee Police Department family.
The death in the line of duty less than two months ago of Officer Charles Irvine, Jr. is still on our minds, and from his passing we know how difficult the coming days will be for our city and for the men and women who have sworn to protect and serve this community. We recognize their sacrifice and the sacrifices made by their families, and we must band together and offer our full support during this time of mourning.
Together as one Milwaukee community we must stand and honor the memory of our fallen officer while continuing to support one another during this painful and difficult time.
