In 2004, while a police officer held 21-yr-old Michael Bell in a bear hug, another Kenosha Police officer placed his gun directly to Michael's head and took his life.
In 2012, private investigators unraveled a cover-up by the police. The cover-up can be seen in the video FORENSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE, Anatomy of a police cover-up (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMA3515VLys&t=16s)
As per Wisconsin Statute 979.04, the District Attorney may call for a public inquest when death is unexplained or due to suspicious circumstances.
Please sign this petition to demand Kenosha District Attorney Michael Graveley call for a public inquest in the shooting of my son.
