BENTON HARBOR — An internal investigation finding that excessive force wasn’t used in the Dec. 28 arrest of a Benton Harbor man isn’t sitting well with at least one of the man’s supporters.

Gwen Swanigan from the S.H.A.R.P. Foundation took the conclusion, written by City Manager Ellis Mitchell, to the Benton Harbor Public Safety and Recreation Committee Wednesday, saying she hoped that the matter would be put on the city commission’s agenda Monday for commissioners to review.
