FBI Milwaukee Statement on Individuals Inciting Violence During First Amendment-Protected Peaceful Demonstrations
Statement from FBI Milwaukee Special Agent in Charge Robert E. Hughes:
"FBI Milwaukee is supporting our state and local law enforcement partners with maintaining public safety in our community. The FBI is providing both personnel and resources in this effort. Our focus is on identifying, investigating, and disrupting individuals that are inciting violence and engaging in criminal activity. We are not focused on peaceful protests."
