Statement of Attorneys for Cameron Murdoch


By - Jun 5th, 2020 08:39 pm

MILWAUKEE—The Attorneys for Cameron Murdoch issued the following statement today:

“Cameron Murdoch was a victim of a violent police assault on June 2, 2020. As the videos and photographs clearly show, a law enforcement officer planted his knee on Mr. Murdoch’s neck while forcefully striking him after he was wrongfully detained. He sustained injuries to his person and property.

“Mr. Murdoch’s constitutional rights were violated and he will be pursuing any available claims to the full extent of the law.

“Mr. Murdoch was a peaceful demonstrator who was exercising his First Amendment right to protest and assembly. It was not after curfew, he was not acting violently, and he did not pose a threat to anyone. The police statement about what happened is inaccurate, as video and photographic evidence demonstrates.

“We appreciate the Milwaukee Common Council’s joint statement yesterday, indicating they want answers. We appreciate the Mayor’s statements today. Cameron deserves answers, our community deserves justice, and Milwaukee deserves better.”
