On the heels of an announcement that U.S. Attorney James Santelle will review the shooting death of Dontre Hamilton at the hands of Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney, U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore has called for a broader review of whether the Milwaukee Police Department systemically violates citizens’ civil rights.

U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee) has called on the U.S. Attorney’s Office to conduct a “pattern and practice” review of the Milwaukee Police Department in connection with the Dontre Hamilton case.

Moore made the request this week in a letter to the federal prosecutor’s office in Milwaukee.

  1. The right side says:

    Gwen’s going after the police union, hope they remember that come next election.

    • Because they’ve supported her in the past?

      Look, the Milwaukee Police Association is solidly right-wing, so them not supporting Gwen Moore certainly won’t hurt her electoral chances in 2016.

    thewrongside,

    When police are used to bash American’s First Amendment Rights, real conservatives defend the First Amendment.
