MILWAUKEE — The message was loud and clear on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive as volunteers from all over the city to help clean up after overnight vandalism and looting.

"When I first pulled in I said, oh my gosh there are so many people.' I though we're gonna be here forever, but this line is moving so quickly," volunteer DeAngela Barnes-Ross said.

A line wrapped around the parking lot as hundreds of volunteers showed up to clean what a weekend of overnight unrest left behind.

"This clean up effort today and everyone that will come out is an effort to show that we are not accepting what's happening. We can't just allow our community to be damaged and the destruction to continue," Deshea Agee, an organizer of the cleanup said.
