    Rev. Al Sharpton to Deliver Eulogy for Black Man Who Died in Milwaukee Hotel Incident

    The upcoming funeral of Dvontaye Mitchell, a Black man who died last month after being pinned to the ground by hotel security guards in Milwaukee, has garnered national attention. The Rev. Al Sharpton, a prominent civil rights activist, is set to deliver the eulogy at Mitchell’s funeral on Thursday. Mitchell’s death has drawn comparisons to the murder of George Floyd, sparking outrage and calls for justice.

    The circumstances surrounding Mitchell’s death remain unclear, with conflicting reports about what led to the altercation with the security guards at the Hyatt Regency. The initial police report stated that Mitchell entered the hotel, caused a disturbance, and fought with the guards as they were escorting him out. However, Mitchell’s family has hired civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who represented Floyd’s family, to seek answers and accountability.

    The tragic incident has reignited conversations about racial violence and police brutality, with Sharpton emphasizing the need for justice and accountability. As the Republican National Convention approaches in Milwaukee, Sharpton has called attention to Mitchell’s death, urging convention-goers to acknowledge the ongoing fight for justice and equality.

    While the investigation into Mitchell’s death is still ongoing, the medical examiner’s office has ruled his death a homicide. The lack of criminal charges against the security guards involved has raised concerns about accountability and transparency in the case. As the community mourns the loss of Dvontaye Mitchell, the call for justice and reform continues to echo across the nation.
