Kenosha County and city issue curfews for Monday, Tuesday nights

Kenosha County and the city of Kenosha have issued emergency curfews for Monday and Tuesday nights.

The curfews will take effect 8 p.m. each night and are set to expire at 7 a.m. Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

The action Monday follows a similar action taken Sunday when crowds gathered in areas of Kenosha, presumably in reaction to the death of a man being taken into custody by police officers in Minneapolis. Crowds, sometimes turning violent, have been popping up in cities all over the US.

Here is a news release from the Sheriff’s Department:
