6-3-20 madison protests

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Protesters have shut down a six-lane state highway that feeds into downtown Madison for a second day. Gov. Tony Evers on Tuesday called for the Legislature to pass a law to reduce the use of police force and urged a united battle against racism. The latest actions came after a third night of violence gripped downtown Madison, with protesters spray painting graffiti on the state Capitol and nearby buildings, dumping paint on the beloved “Forward” statue and breaking into boarded up businesses. Police in riot gear for a third night used tear gas to disperse the crowd.
