Milwaukee Attorney Stephanie Rapkin, 64, was arrested on charges of battery and disorderly conduct for spitting on the teen who happened to be protesting.
The crowd surrounded the woman, while other protesters keep them physically separated from her. When she left the scene, protesters quickly identified Rapkin, based on the personalized license plate of her car.
While walking through Shorewood, hundreds of people, many wearing masks because of the pandemic, cheered on the mostly-masked marchers and businesses handed out food and water. But one woman parked in the street to obstruct the marchers and then spit in a teenager’s face while standing on the sidewalk.
The incident was captured on video by Caress Gonzalez Ramirez and attorney Stephanie Rapkin, 64, was led from her home in handcuffs Saturday night at around 10:00 p.m.
A photo, shared by Public Allies Milwaukee executive director Ashley Lee, showed Rapkin being walked away from her house in handcuffs by police officers.
Neither Rapkin nor the unidentified victim was wearing a mask at the time of the incident. The victim had one around his neck.
The Shorewood Police Department said she was in custody, but not yet charged. The case has been referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney.
Spitting on someone is the ultimate form of disrespect. That’s a green light regardless of who or what you are.
Why can’t you just walk away and get into your car and drive away? This spitting incident doesn’t make sense, and with the coronavirus pandemic, this woman should be charged with an attempt to kill.
