    JAY-Z’s Team Roc Calls for Prosecution of Wisconsin Cop Behind 3 Fatal Shootings

    -


    JAY-Z’s Team Roc published an open letter in today’s issue of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel calling for Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm to prosecute and fire Wauwatosa Police Department officer Joseph Mensah. In the five years he’s held his job, Mensah reportedly shot and killed Alvin Cole, Antonio Gonzales, and Jay Anderson, firing 19 shots total in those three incidents.

    “His actions demonstrate an utter disregard for the lives of these young men,” the letter reads. “What is also egregious is that the department’s failure to mandate body cameras has enabled these tragic instances. The failure to preserve video evidence has impeded multiple investigations.” It continues:

    As a result, we are calling for your office to prosecute Mensah to
    ensure that he never kills anyone again and to immediately outfit all
    of our police officers with body cameras. It is our responsibility to
    do the right thing, hold Mensah accountable for his actions and
    protect Wauwatosa citizens from further tragedy. Mensah must also be
    de-certified and fired from the police force immediately.

    Team Roc previously published an open letter demanding justice for Ahmaud Arbery. At the end of May, JAY-Z had a phone conversation with the governor of Minnesota where they discussed justice for George Floyd.
