The Milwaukee Bucks issued a strongly worded statement in reaction to the release of the body-camera footage documenting an incident in January involving Sterling Brown and the Milwaukee Police Department in which the guard was arrested and tasered.

The Bucks in the statement pledge “full support” for Brown amid the controversy and demand “full accountability” from the Milwaukee PD.

“The abuse and intimidation that Sterling experienced at the hands of Milwaukee Police was shameful and inexcusable,” the statement reads. “Sterling has our full support as he shares his story and takes action to provide accountability.

“Unfortunately, this isn’t an isolated case. It shouldn’t require an incident involving a professional athlete to draw attention to the fact that vulnerable people in our communities have experienced similar, and even worse, treatment.

A monkey gets free at the San Antonio airport

  A monkey gets free at the San Antonio airport A monkey that was being transported escaped its cage Monday afternoon and ran loose in San Antonio International Airport, officials said. The monkey had just arrived on an American Airlines flight from Chicago when it made a break, according to CNN affiliate KSAT. The airport initially identified the monkey as a baboon, but Brown University in Rhode Island said the primate was a rhesus macaque. Brown said the animal had retired from research protocols at the school. An airport spokesman said the monkey was captured in the baggage handling area of Terminal B.It is now headed to its new home near San Antonio.

“We are grateful for the service of many good police officers that courageously protect us, our fans and our city, but racial biases and abuses of power must not be ignored.

“There needs to be more accountability.

“The Milwaukee Police Department and local officials have acknowledged the challenges they are working to address, and we urge them to enact higher standards and more direct accountability. We all want to be able to trust each and every officer serving to protect us.

“Incidents like this remind us of the injustices that persist. As an organization, we will support Sterling and build on our work with local leaders and organizations to foster safe neighborhoods and better our community.”

The incident in question occurred when police approached Brown after his vehicle was double-parked in a handicap zone outside of a Milwaukee Walgreens.

After the additional officers arrived, the situation became more tense, with police standing in a circle around Brown and using profane language before yelling at him to take his hands out of his pockets — now, via USA TODAY.

Bitter, expensive fight for Arkansas court seat to drag on

  Bitter, expensive fight for Arkansas court seat to drag on A bitter and expensive fight for an Arkansas Supreme Court seat that drew more than $1 million in outside spending will drag on for another six months. Justice Courtney Goodson and David Sterling, the chief counsel for the state Department of Human Services, advanced to a runoff in the November election for the state's highest court in Tuesday's non-partisan judicial election. The two were the top candidates in a three-person race for Goodson's seat, with Appeals Court Judge Kenneth Hixson finishing third.

Brown, who had taken his hands in and out of his pockets several times before that, replied: “Hold on. I’ve got stuff in my hands.” 

Police swarmed him, shouting “Taser! Taser! Taser!” Brown yelled in pain as he was shocked.

Brown earlier this week issued his own statement on the incident and through his attorney indicated an intention to file a civil rights lawsuit against the Milwaukee Police Department. Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett, before the release of the video, admitted he “definitely” has concerns after watching the disturbing footage.

Brown was never charged in the incident but was cited for a parking violation.
