[ARCHIVED] Village Board Issues Statement on recent Kenosha events

Village Hall

As elected municipal officials and private citizens, we are shocked and outraged by recent events in Kenosha. The shooting of Jacob Blake is another sad reminder of the progress that still needs to be made as all communities need to examine the use of force and disparate treatment of people of color within their neighborhoods. We support a prompt investigation by the Department of Justice. The Village of Shorewood will examine the use of force and the treatment of people of color by law enforcement. We will continue to fully support and protect peaceful protesters and their use of First Amendment rights to promote change. We condemn armed vigilantes and militias who usurp the role of law enforcement and support the federal investigation of possible civil rights violations in Kenosha.

Shorewood Village Board: Allison Rozek, Davida Amenta, Tammy Bockhorst, Jessica Carpenter, Arthur Ircink, Kathy Stokebrand, and Wesley Warren
