Milwaukee is currently struggling with unrest following the fatal shooting of an armed black man by a Milwaukee police officer on Saturday night. There have been protests every night since, some of which have turned violent. Amidst all the unrest, internet streams have been one of the few unfiltered sources of news. But some activists in Milwaukee have alleged that the biggest local internet provider, Time Warner Cable, now owned by Charter Communications, has been cutting off access to some neighborhoods by order of the police.
