Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Arms and the police officer kind of throws a four throws a punch at the seventeen year old he goes down he's continuing to struggle he's screaming and there's somebody that's that's videotaping this entire thing so again this video goes viral a small group of people calling themselves the original black panthers of milwaukee then what they do is they go out and they they're now staging protests they are calling for a boycott of mayfair mall and a firing of the police officer as a result of you know what happened here the group is demanding the officer resign or be filed fired they're calling prosecutors to charge them they also want shoppers to boycott the mall one of the spokespeople for his groups as far too often we are subjected to racial profiling this mall far too often those dynamics have to change and we're here to demand that they do change the walla tosa police say we're aware of this this video but at the same time this video only shows a saul small segment of the interaction between the suspect and the officer so what they're essentially saying is this this just captures the end of this you know you don't see what went on before that but we're conducting investigation right four one four seven nine nine one six twenty accurate mortgage talk and text line the group wants mayfair mall to be boycotted because of the conduct of this war with tosa police officer four one four seven nine nine one six twenty that is the accurate mortgage talk and text line is it time to boycott mayfair mall because of the way particularly persons of color are treated or alternatively is that the wrong question let me be real clear here i don't having not seen what led up to this punch or forearm that is twinned by the police officer it's tough for me to judge without having that overall context but an here's an important but if the officer used excessive force i think it's fine to discipline all right i think that's that is completely and totally appropriate i don't know enough about this having seen only fifteen second clip to make a determination one way or the other but at the same time isn't there another issue that's out there what was it that was going on why isn't this group outrage about the underlying conduct that these this group.
