Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser made the following comments at today’s news conference on the unrest in the community:
“On behalf of County Board Chairman John O’Day, I am grateful to be here today after the second straight night of relative calm in Kenosha County. And we’re grateful and thankful that the protesting last night was done peacefully.
“To everyone who is abiding by the nightly curfews, thank you. I support everyone’s right to protest peacefully, but I think we’ve found that people going home after dark has played a significant role in tamping down violence and destruction these last couple of nights.
“I’ve also stated the last couple of days that we’re committed to working with the city on a new path forward to bring our community back together — to seek the change that is needed, but peacefully.
“I pray that we are now headed in that direction.”
