Wisconsin May Hire 5 Justice Department staffers to Investigate Cop-Involved Shootings

The national outcry over cop-involved shootings may mean more accountability in Wisconsin.

Gov. Scott Walker said he may change his mind and include in the budget enough money to hire five state Justice Department staffers to investigate the officer-involved deaths, the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel reports.

“If DOJ feels as though additional funding is necessary to address these cases, we are willing to work with them and the state Legislature to ensure adequate funding,” Walker spokeswoman Laurel Patrick said in an email.

One of the most recent officer-involved shootings occurred March 6 in Madison, where Tony Robinson was fatally shot by a white cop, prompting large protests.
