The video above, as well as the content within this post was provided by Isiah Holmes, via the CopBlock.org Submissions Page. As was previously reported in a post on CopBlock.org by Ademo, Isiah is a high school student that filmed a documentary about police abuses within the Wauwatosa Police Department, specifically relating to abuses targeting youth within the city located in the Milwaukee area. The final and complete version of that documentary, “Speak Friend and Enter,” is now available to be viewed on Youtube.
In addition, via a Youtube comment, CopBlock Network contributor Tim Seltz, who is also from the Milwaukee area, states:
“Anyone concerned with the actions of Wauwatosa PD is strongly encouraged to contact CopBlock.org by emailing me, Tim Seltz of Waukesha, @ [email protected], text – 262-501-6961, or twitter @wkshacopblock”
Department Involved: Wauwatosa Police Department
Multiple officers involved: Specific officers’ identities are unknown.
The documentary “Speak Friend And Enter” investigates reports of misconduct committed by Wisconsin’s Wauwatosa Police Department, near Milwaukee.
The film looks into the department’s longstanding reputation for racial discrimination, it’s participation in several large scale teen drug use crackdowns, and the introduction of a policy of withholding arrest information; thus keeping the community in the dark.
The story is told through a collection of young voices local to the area who both experienced what happened and never talked about it afterward. This project was also produced entirely via the YouTube video editor.
ALL MUSIC CREDITED TO TEEN ARTISTS BELONGS TO THEM, AS IT IS THEIR CREATIONS.
