These stories found that no police shooting inquest in Milwaukee over the past twenty years ever resulted in criminal charges. In one case, an off-duty police officer shot and killed someone who tried to steal his lawnmower; the officer was let off with no consequences. The investigation found several cases in which the juries did not completely acquit the police officer, but still the shootings were written off as justifiable. Besides exposing this problem, the investigation offers some suggestions for reform.
