Brother of man shot and killed by Milwaukee Police Officer reveals officer's name at public meeting

MILWAUKEE-- Supporters of Dontre Hamilton, a man shot 14 times by a Milwaukee Police Officer, showed strength in numbers at Thursday Night's Special Meeting with the Fire and Police Commission.

\"We need to reach out, we need to pray, we need to ask God to come down,\" said Nate Hamilton, brother of Dontre Hamilton, as he addressed supporters.

Their quiet entrance to the auditorium at Milwaukee's Public Library-- a stark contrast to the civil disobedience at city hall two weeks ago.  Instead of frustration and anger-- demonstrators took the podium to deliver a list of demands to Milwaukee Police.

\"Number seven-- the immediate resignation of Police Chief Edward Flynn,\" said Curtis Sails, as he read off the the demands.

Nate Hamilton also revealed who shot Dontre at Red Arrow Park.

\"I can say his name since I know his name, right Chief Flynn?\" said Nate, as he addressed the commission.

CBS-58 has chosen not to reveal the name of that officer since Chief Ed Flynn will not make the information public.  The officer is still on desk duty-- but demonstrators want him off the force.

\"If you do not know how to serve our people, then I suggest you find another line of work,\" said one demonstrator.
