Milwaukee, July 29, 2022: Justice For Brieon Green! Press Conference


12 NOON, 901 N 9th Street, Milwaukee County Courthouse

We demand:

The public release of all the officer’s names who arrested Green and handled his booking
The release of the body camera footage of all 7 officers who interacted with Green during his arrest and inside the county jail
The release of the footage from street cameras that captured Green’s arrest
The release of the footage from the squad car in which Green was arrested
The release of the footage from the cameras inside the county jail to ensure that Green was booked, medically cleared, and alive prior to being jailed
Chairwoman Marcelia Nicholson to open a formal investigation into Green’s death

Green was arrested on Sunday, June 26, and died three hours after his arrest while at Milwaukee County Jail. An entire month has passed since Green’s death, and his family has yet received clear answers as to why and how he died. Green’s family needs to know what happened. The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office is refusing to be transparent. Issues around transparency are not uncommon for law enforcement in Milwaukee. In April, Keishon Thomas (20), died while in police custody at Milwaukee Police District 5. Cases like these further deteriorate the little, if any, trust that community members may have in Milwaukee’s law enforcement.
