A white Milwaukee man has pleaded not guilty to a criminal charge filed against him after video captured him with his hand around the neck of a Black man with special needs in a case many are calling an example of racial profiling.
Robert Walczykowski, 62, recently pleaded not guilty to a disorderly conduct misdemeanor charge after video went viral of him wrapping his hand around the neck of 24-year-old Trevon Burks, who is Black and has a disability.
Walczykowski eventually removes his hand and later gives the person recording the middle finger.
Eventually, Burks was able to get away from Walczykowski. He left the area before police arrived at the scene.
False or unsubstantiated accusations of misdeeds sometimes fueled those murders.
