Dozens march in Milwaukee calling for justice after Michael Brown shooting

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - About 125 people gathered at a downtown Milwaukee park Sunday to call for justice in the aftermath of the police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri.

The group yelled "No justice, no peace" and "Hands up, don't shoot" -- what's become a common phrase in Ferguson after witnesses said Brown had his hands up when an officer shot him.

Among those speaking at the Milwaukee rally was Craig Stingley, father of a black West Allis teen who died after being held down by 3 white convenience store customers.

Also at the rally were relatives of Dontre Hamilton, who was shot more than 10 times by an officer in late April after getting info a confrontation with the patrolman at Red Arrow Park -- where Sunday's rally took place. The crowd also marched to Milwaukee's downtown police station.
