“Justice delayed is justice denied”
Is justice finally on the horizon for the family of Dontre Hamilton? The continued pressure applied by the family and the Coalition for Justice coupled with recent developments suggest that it could be.
It appears the FBI is now involved in the 5-month old murder case, and a national use of force expert is also investigating Dontre’s death. Hamilton was fatally shot 14 times by a Milwaukee Police Department officer, who remains free and uncharged.
One thing remains clear: the Coalition of Justice and Dontre’s family will not be letting up their efforts until they see the officer brought to justice.
