Rally attendees call for Milwaukee’s Chief Flynn to resign

A full range of emotions was on display and calls for Milwaukee police Chief Edward Flynn to resign intensified Thursday as close to 400 people gathered at the Milwaukee Brotherhood of Firefighters Hall for what turned out to be part film screening, part memorial service and part call to action in the wake of the death of Derek Williams.

Williams, 22, died in police custody in July 2011. Recently released squad video shows him suffocating and begging for help in the back seat of a police car as officers ignore his pleas for nearly eight minutes.

Detective’s ‘without incident’ remark guided ruling on in-custody death

An assistant medical examiner trusted a police detective’s statement that the arrest of Derek Williams happened “without incident,” leading the pathologist to conclude a year ago that Williams died naturally, Milwaukee County’s chief medical examiner said Wednesday.

Assistant Medical Examiner Christopher Poulos did not ask for or review any police reports or video during his initial investigation of Williams’ death. Instead, he relied on a detective’s statement to an on-scene investigator from the medical examiner’s office about the July 2011 death.
