A suburban Milwaukee police officer who has fatally shot three people in the line of duty since 2015, including a teenager outside a mall in February, is expected to receive about $130,000 US for resigning from the force.
The Wauwatosa Common Council approved a separation agreement with Joseph Mensah on Tuesday night, effective Nov. 30. The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office has ruled all three shootings by Mensah were justified self-defence.

Wisconsin also saw protests in August, after another Wisconsin officer shot a Black man, Jacob Blake, seven times in the back in Kenosha in front of his sons. Two protesters were shot by an armed civilian in the days following the original shooting.

I kind of wonder if he might have been challenged more out on the street.
