Wisconsin Requires Outside Investigation for Police-Custody Deaths

In April 2014, Wisconsin became the first state to require that police-custody deaths be investigated by outside agencies. Anti-police-violence activists in other states may benefit from Wisconsin’s example.

Michael Bell, Sr. discusses how the fatal police shooting of his son a decade ago led to the passage of a 2014 Wisconsin law that bars police from investigating themselves after a fatal shooting.

— The Real News

It took an activist community 10 years to achieve the Wisconsin mandate for outside investigation of police-custody deaths. Visit that community at their Facebook page A Plea for Change. It is updated frequently.
