US Attorney's Office will investigate shooting of Dontre Hamilton
Nate Hamilton says he's taking his brother's fight for justice to the feds chanting, \"Convict indite, send that killer cop to jail\"
The family and his attorneys are asking for two things-- a federal investigation into Dontre Hamilton's death, and the Milwaukee Police Department's operating procedures.The ACLU, NAACP, and the Hamilton family are all working together on the case. Mayor Tom Barrett says he'll cooperate with any investigation.
Mayor Barrett says, \"I will certainly work with the Justice Department or anyone in Washington DC to make sure their concerns are addressed here. I want those concerns addressed, I need to have a community where police and citizens can work with and trust each other..\"
Hamilton supporters say this case represents a bigger picture of racism, and poor relations between police and African Americans.
