(CBS) — Chicago’s Reverend Jesse Jackson is calling for justice for the family of another black man killed by a Milwaukee police officer.
Last April, Dontre Hamilton, 31, was shot to death by a Milwaukee police officer. That officer, Christopher Manney, said Dontre resisted arrest in a Milwaukee park than grabbed his baton.READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Spotty Showers Sunday Night, Monday
“At that point, the officer said ‘you want to fight?’ and he shot him 14 times,” said Nate Hamilton, Dontre’s brother.
Manney was fired by the department. Just a few days ago, a Milwaukee district attorney announced Manney would not face any charges in Dontre’s death and a 30 page report called the shooting justified.
“There’s a sense of obvious outrage,” Rev. Jackson said.
That outrage was the reason for the Saturday’s rally to protest that decision.READ MORE: Phase 2 Opens Monday In Illinois Outside Chicago For Anyone 16 And Over To Get COVID-19 Vaccine, But Teens Under 18 Face Challenge
