Press covers Ian Wallach's retention in Red Arrow Park shooting of Dontre Hamilton.  Dontre Hamilton was sleeping in a public public park in front of City Hall in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Starbucks' employees called the police, who interviewed Mr. Hamilton, determined that he was not a threat and had a lawful right to be present, and left.  Minutes later, a foot patrol officer came to the park, awoke Mr. Hamilton, and a conflict ensued.  The officer, who has a history of engaging in conflict with people at the public park engaging in conduct the officer finds disturbing, removed his baton.  Mr. Hamilton took the baton.  From the viewpoint of the Starbuck's employee, Mr. Hamilton used the officer's baton to protect himself.  The officer fired approximately 10 shots into Mr. Hamilton, killing him.
