June 21st, 2017 by milwaukeepolice

The following statement is from Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn in response to the jury verdict in the trial of former police officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown.

“The jury’s verdict was based on the objective evidence before it. A year ago I told the public I’d seen nothing in the video that was a violation of the law or policy. The jury saw the same evidence and came to the same conclusion.”
