Milwaukee: The city of love

“Milwaukee, the city of peace and love, is coming home.”

Milwaukee’s most famous monument is a monument to the city’s former mayor, Edward E. “Bobby” Thompson.

It sits on a hill, and at the top is a plaque honoring the city that welcomed him to Milwaukee as a child.

It also includes a memorial to Thompson, the son of Milwaukee’s first black mayor, who was killed in a car crash in 1977, shortly after being elected.

It reads: Mayor Thompson was an honorable man.

He was a fighter.

He lived life with honor and dignity.

And I love him and wish him the best.

Bobby Thompson, Jr. was the son and grandson of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Garrett Thompson and was killed when his car went off the road in 2014.

He is survived by his mother, Kathleen.

The city has been at the center of the nation’s protests over police brutality.

Last year, a group of activists staged a protest outside of the city council chambers in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

A day after that, a small group of protesters set up a barricade outside the council chambers and blocked the entrance.

The protest was called a “peaceful demonstration.”

The demonstrators also chanted, “No justice, no peace.”

The protests drew national attention.

Milkwaukee Mayor Bob Taft and Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke both spoke out against the protests, but also criticized the Black Power movement.
