The Milwaukee Police Department will continue to support peaceful demonstrations; however, there were several events that took place last night in the City of Milwaukee that were not peaceful.

An incident occurred at a private home between a resident and protesters that subsequently resulted in the resident’s home being vandalized by protestors. Protestors also looted and damaged five businesses located on Milwaukee’s northwest side and threw bricks at three Milwaukee Police squad cars causing damage.

The Milwaukee Police Department is requesting that all individuals engaged in expressing their first amendment rights do so peacefully and refrain from the destruction of property.
