Wisconsin Retirees Horrified by Senseless Shootings
For Immediate Release
Statement of Gary Mitchell, President of the Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans, regarding continued violence in Kenosha:
“The Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans remains shocked and horrified about a Kenosha police officer shooting Jacob Blake at point-blank range. We are praying for Mr. Blake’s recovery and extending our sympathy and thoughts to Mr. Blake’s family and friends.
“We are also horrified by the cold-blooded murder of two people and the injury of a third who were exercising their right to protest injustice. Hate and racism cannot be tolerated. We must redouble our own efforts to dismantle systemic racism and demand an end to police violence against communities of color.”
