MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Police Department has released a video compilation of various instances of looting, vandalism, and other crimes since the protests against George Floyd's death while in police custody began.

"The Milwaukee Police Department supports your constitutional right to protest peacefully. We will not support or tolerate the criminal and illegal activity shown in this video," a press release said.

For the most part protests have been peaceful during the day with isolated incidents of criminal activity.

Some organizers have expressed concern that these moments will paint their demonstrations in a negative light. Those organizers said that many of the people peacefully demonstrating during the day aren't the ones who stay out into the early hours of the morning.
