Antaramian To Release Documents Related to Michael Bell Jr Death

Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian says he will release more documents related to investigations into Michael Bell Jr’s death. Bell was killed in an incident with Kenosha police in 2004. In recent months Bell’s father, Michael Sr, has run ads and billboards questioning what the mayor knew about his son’s death. Bell has alleged a cover up involving city officials and law enforcement. The shooting was deemed justified and since then city settled with the Bell family in a civil suit. Changes to the law governing how police shootings are investigated have also been passed. At last night’s meeting Bell and the mayor got into a confrontation over Bell displaying his ad, with Antaramian saying he should take it down or he would be expelled from the meeting. The mayor ended up leaving the meeting for a short time and discussing the matter with Kenosha Police Chief Daniel Miskinis. In the end Bell was allowed to stay, the Mayor returned and the meeting continued as usual. Antaramian told the alderman that he would provide them with the documents from the various law enforcement agencies who have looked into the Bell case over the past nearly 15 years.
