Saginaw Police: Why was a Mentally Disabled Man Killed by Police Firing Squad?

On July 1, 2012, Milton Hall, a man disabled by mental illness was shot at least 46-times by six Saginaw, Michigan police officers. The tragic events started when Hall began welding a knife outside of a convenience store. The entire scenario was videotaped by an onlooker, yet the probe by State police and Prosecutors is still not finished. This slow pace has many demanding more transparency and disclosure surrounding the status of the investigation.

Hall’s mother told a CNN Reporter:

"I'm stunned that six human beings would stand in front of one human being and fire 46 shots," Jewel Hall said. "I just don't understand that. It's a lot of pain in that because it only takes one shot, so the question is why? Why is not being transparent?"

Although the Department of Justice has recently opened an investigation, too much time has passed with no answers. Please tell the Saginaw, Michigan Police Chief Gerald Cliff to provide Full Disclosure to the Hall family and the city of Saginaw!

Dear Police Chief Gerald Cliff,

Milton Hall was killed by by six members of your police force in a blaze of gunfire. Yet the Hall family and the Saginaw community still has no clue as to the status of the internal investigation.

This lack of transparency is unacceptable. We (the undersigned) implore you to give the Hall family as well as the public an update on your investigation!
