(SleeperCells) – 25-year-old Jay Anderson was killed by a Wauwatosa officer at 3am on June 23d, 2016. That officer was identified by the family at this protest, despite officials keeping it hidden. During the protest, the Andersons’ described how they’re holding up, as well as their demands for answers as to what happened to Jay. Milwaukee PD continues investigations.
During an off-camera interview with Cop Block contributors, Mr. and Mrs. Anderson described how WPD has handled protests. SWAT officers who stormed Mayfair Mall allegedly had their badges covered up. According to the Andersons, even mall goers who’d otherwise support the police found this suspicious. According to the Andersons, during their most recent protest–also at Mayfair–WPD ordered the Andersons to not say a word in the mall. If words were spoken, or even a formal march was organized in the mall, then either Jay’s mother or fiancé would be arrested first. WPD has threatened arrests since the beginning and, although none have been made, these most recent threats were the most targeted.
The Andersons continue to push for full disclosure regarding Jay’s killing. Activists and family members are highly proactive, and aren’t waiting for officials to disclose the officers name. Watch the Madison Park protest to find out more.
