A group protesting against the Racine Police Department after a dog was shot to death by a Racine Police officer was told Saturday they could not protest on the sidewalk because the space had been rented by the Downtown Racine Corporation for the Holiday Parade.
The group Justice 4 Angel was protesting near Monument Square at about 4 p.m. Saturday when officers from the Racine Police Department told the group they had to move because the Downtown Racine Corporation had rented the space for the Holiday Parade. The protesters were told they were only being asked to move because the Downtown Racine Corporation had paid for a permit for the parade and they had to keep moving.
Justice 4 Angel was started after a dog named Angel, which belonged to a man involved in a police standoff, was fatally shot on Nov. 2. The group has called for the officer to be fired and charged with animal cruelty, and for the department to receive more training.
Editor’s note: The video was taken by Mike Paczesny. The video does reflect his opinion. We also corrected the story to reflect that the group was asked to move.
