Wisconsin National Guard No Longer Present at Protests
Gov Evers announced in a statement Tuesday that the Wisconsin National guard will end being present at protests throughout the state which have continued after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis over 2 weeks ago. Gov Evers said he was encouraged by the peaceful protesters and thanked the citizen soldiers of the national guard for helping keep the community safe. Troops were used in various cities around the state with troops leaving Milwaukee, Green Bay and Racine Monday; they left Kenosha last week. Guard members did stay in Madison through Monday night.
