Milwaukee, WI– On February 24th, 2016 Christopher Davis was shot and killed by Walworth sheriff’s deputy Juan Ortiz. Since his death, the Walworth County Sherriff’s Office has failed to provide information to the family regarding the circumstances surrounding his death.
There has been a lack of transparency by the police department and the Wisconsin Department of Justice, which is currently investigating the case. Davis’ family is demanding information to be shared with them. The Coalition for Justice stands with the family of Davis in the search for information and for justice.
The Coalition for Justice has taken the lead in organizing the community around the issue of police brutality and misconduct in the city of Milwaukee since the death of Dontre Hamilton on April 30, 2014.
The Coalition for Justice will continue to push police departments across the country to change their history of racial profiling, searches and seizures without probable cause, the targeting of minority populations for harassment, and excessive use of force.
