  • Milwaukee Bucks guard Sterling Brown

On May 23, the Milwaukee Police released a video arresting Bucks guard Sterling Brown for a parking violation that took place on January 26. The basketball player tells officers that he needs to empty items out of his hands, first.

Brown left his Mercedes idling across parking lanes while he was in the store, the video released Wednesday shows.

"We're calling on the police department to share this information that many of you have been asking for about the discipline", Milwaukee Council President Ashanti Hamilton said at a press conference. Now the Milwaukee Bucks guard says he plans on suing the department. In his own statement, Brown connected his experience to the fatal killings of "Dontre Hamilton of Milwaukee, Laquan McDonald of Chicago, Stephon Clark of Sacramento, Eric Garner of NY, and the list goes on".

"If they're going to do anything in the line of doing their job that's gonna cause the city to pay out money, then they shouldn't be police officer".

Officers doing a routine check at a Walgreens near the BMO Harris Bradley Center - the Bucks' home arena - found a auto parked across two handicapped spaces.

Later in the video, Brown says "They tased me for no reason" to someone out of view of the camera, prompting the officer who initially confronted him to say Brown "was being an ass" and "trying to hide something". But the Journal Sentinel is reporting that Grams was suspended for two days, while two sergeants, Jeffrey S. Krueger and Sean A. Mahnke, received suspensions of 10 and 15 days.

In the video, the officer calls for backup and several patrol cars show up.

"The department conducted an investigation into the incident which revealed members acted inappropriately and those members were recently disciplined", Morales said, without taking questions.

Brown said he chose to speak up about the incident on behalf of Laquan McDonald, Stephon Clark and others in the black community who have died in encounters with police. After Garner was killed in 2014 when police officers held him in a headlock in NY, players (including then-Bulls guard Derrick Rose) wore shirts that read "I Can't Breathe".

But bodycam video proves that Brown never threatened or became violent with the officers before he was tased and arrested. "So I think it's encouraging that he stand and lets his community see that somebody is willing to risk themselves in standing up against a powerful, powerful entity", Lewis says. "It's a hard job law enforcement has, but most importantly, we have to restore the trust in this community between our police and our community", said Lucas.

"Situations like mine and worse happen every day in the black community", he wrote.

The city has also paid out millions of dollars in recent years to settle lawsuits by black residents who said police had illegally strip-searched them. Fuller believes officers aren't being held accountable for their actions.
