Community members criticizing Milwaukee Police Department's handling of Sterling Brown incident

NOW: Community members criticizing Milwaukee Police Department’s handling of Sterling Brown incident


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- In the wake of controversial Sterling Brown arrest video, the City is trying to decide how to handle how police body camera video will be released. 

It will be discussed at Thursday night's Fire and Police Commission meeting. 

While the Fire and Police Commission is weighing in on changes to the Milwaukee Police Department's policy, community members are speaking out about the entire situation. 

"It makes it more adamant about why the officers should be fired," said community activist, Markasa Tucker. "When you show who you are, folks should believe you the first time. We shouldn't have to wait for something else to come up."

Some community members say they aren't surprised that this breach of trust has happened and want to know why only one perspective was released at first. Other members of an activist group called the Community Task Force say they're planning to speak out publicly about this issue next week.
