CHICAGO (WITI) -- For the third time in a month, the family of Dontre Hamilton has teamed up with National Civil Right Activist, Reverend Jesse Jackson. Saturday, January 10th, the Hamilton's met with Jackson in Chicago.
The Hamilton's again were part of a national broadcast at the Rainbow Push Coalition in Chicago -- they're hopeful the attention will help their cause.
Dontre Hamilton was shot and killed by a Milwaukee police officer in Red Arrow Park last April. The officer was fired for his actions leading up to the shooting, but was not criminally charged.
"The prosecutor did not determine it was worth a trial, but we have a different view of that," said Rev. Jackson.
A federal investigation is currently underway.
"We're going to get an indictment one way or another against Christopher Manney," said Nate Hamilton, Dontre's brother.
Last Friday, January 3rd, Jackson joined the Hamiltons and supporters in Milwaukee.
"He said he'll be back to help us fight this fight. If we don't fight, then we won't win. As long as we stand together, as long as we fight, then we give ourselves a chance at something new happening and taking place," said Nate Hamilton.
An effort they say will continue and a partnership that is now growing.
"If we don't fight, then we'll never see a victory," said Nate Hamilton.
The Hamiltons say they are headed back to Chicago next week. And Reverend Jackson is planning on another trip back to Milwaukee soon.
