Police arrest protesters in Wisconsin capital

MADISON - Police in the Wisconsin capital have begun arresting protesters angry about a prosecutor's decision not to charge a white police officer for shooting an unarmed biracial man.

Officers converged on about 20 protesters who refused to leave an intersection near the Capitol building on Wednesday.

The protesters linked arms as they were detained, and some of them cried. Some onlookers shouted insults, including racial epithets, at the officers.
