More protests planned in Wisconsin capital after police shooting

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 03/09/2015 - 05:59

A makeshift memorial pays tribute to a 19-year-old black man killed by police in Madison, WisconsinActivists plan more protests in Madison, Wisconsin, this week after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman, the latest in a string of killings that highlighted concerns of racial bias in U.S. law enforcement. Tony Robinson Jr., 19, was shot in Wisconsin's capital on Friday evening after Officer Matt Kenny responded to calls reporting a man was dodging cars in traffic and had battered another person, Police Chief Mike Koval said. Demonstrators marched on Saturday evening from the Capitol building to the neighborhood where Robinson was shot, carrying a banner reading "Black Lives Matter" and signs that read "Justice 4 Tony." The community group called Young, Black and Gifted plans a demonstration on Wednesday afternoon at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections building in Madison, according to the group's Facebook page. Last year, the deaths of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and New York City triggered a nationwide wave of demonstrations against the use of excessive force by law enforcement.
